Answers :

The wire goes through the gear shifter and comes out the bottom under the rubber flex on the column, the wire tends to break there( orange covered wire} . You can try to fix it or replace shifter arm, there is a disconnect on the left side of column you will need to remove plastic cover upper and lower pieces they pry apart. Trace orange wire back to disconnect.
My problem was that it would keep turning on and off. i found that the wires at the shifter broke under the boot so i put them back together and electric taped them no i didnt solder them cause i wanted it flexable so it wouldnt short cause of them being too stiff

I am having a brake light problem--all are out. I think the switch is working. With the brake fuse out, I get a 12 volt read across the fuse terminals when the brake pedal is depressed. I think if the brake light switch was bad that I would not have a reading when the pedal is depressed. Is there a relay or something that could be interfering with the circuit. I have tested the wiring at the rear of the car and the lights all come on with a jumper. Thanks


Using a test light, depress brake and see if have 12+ on both wires, when release brake pedal should only have 12+ on one wire, if only have 12+ on one wire then switch is bad.\015\012If you are using a multi-meter, put your negitive on a known ... 1987 Toyota MR2

1997 Isuzu Rodeo V6 4X4. I have only owned this vehicle for 3wks and the fan/ac wont blow at all out the vents. The blue light comes on when i push the ac button but that is all it does. I don't know which fuse it is on the vehicle but I assume it is either the fuse/blower motor. I would like to know which fuse controls the fan/blower motor and how to test and fix the blower motor and and any thing else that you might think is wrong with it. Thanks!

I have a 92 buick skylark 3.3. v6 that I just replaced the starter on after the original starter gave out...after 3 days it's acting like the starter is junk already...I need to know if there's an inline diode or fuse or something other than the celanoid going bad that could cause this. Please...any answer would be greatly appreciated. Thank You, Sam

I have a 1998 Pontiac Firebird, and the drivers side window stopped rolling up and down, I could take the panel off, mess around with the cables, and it would work for a few days. Now when you push the button, nothing happens. And now, the passengers side doesn't roll down either. Could this be a coincidence that they both stopped working, and maybe the cause is something other than the motors being bad?


Its the window switches in the door panel they are attached together replace its only like 15.00 to replace that / please rate my response thank you very much ... 1998 Pontiac Firebird

No heat I have a 1995 ford explorer, I have no heat. have checked the fuses, and replaced the relay. I think it could be the blower motor. People have differing opinions on where it is located either passenger side inside the dash or passenger side up against the fire wall. Any ideas or could it be something else... I also have no air conditioning, defrost, (basically no fan) I do have heat when the truck is moving, i.e.blowing off the motor. any help would be great. Thanks, Dawn


Your problem could be your fan not working for both problems. Generally speaking, it would or should be sticking out of the fire wall. What you need to look for is a small, round protrusion, usally black with 2 wires running to it.\015\012 ... 1995 Ford Explorer

2002 GMC Sonoma, 2200 4 cylinder: My heater worked fine last night, but this morning no go. Dials do nothing, so I check my fuses. My HVAC 30a fuse in the engine compartment fuse box is blown, so I replaced it with a spare. Of course, I didn't check to see if it was bad before trying the heater, and it blew as well. I either have something else wrong, or I replaced it with a bad fuse. While I hope it was a bad fuse the second time around, I don't think it was. It was in the "Spare Fuse" sect

I would like to check the fuses for the power passenger window side, but how can i check the without getting shocked. I know where they are located and I know it isn't the window motor and the switch works but I can only unlock and on the lock button it is slow and the button to raise and lower the window does not work. Could it be the switch or would it be a fuse? Thanks Rebecca


Well try to pull the fuse and see if its burnt or not. and you will not get shocked, because its just 12V and there is no way that the fuse will shock you. just pull the one the you think its burnt and try to replace it. are all the windows out of wo ... Ford GT

The power door locks for my 1996 Odyssey just stopped working. I can't lock/unlock the doors with either the key fob or the front door lock buttons. When you try the door lock buttons, you can hear a buz noise in the front drivers door area. Even checked the fuse under the hood, noise stopped with no fuse. I think it is the door lock control unit but not sure. Any suggestions and any ideas how much to fix? Thanks Jim


Sure sounds like your problem is the power door lock control unit. Best thing to do is get a replacement unit(new or used) and install it, unless you can open and fix the defective unit yourself. ... 1996 Honda Odyssey

The pull cord for my electric shower no longer lights up, and my shower therefore won't run, I've checked the fuse box, nothing is labelled and it's an old style fuse box, there is two 45A which are separate from the rest of the fuses, with separate on off switches, but on removing the fuse I can't tell if either have blown or not. Would I need to check the box for the pull cord, or am I looking in the right place assuming it's a blown fuse? Many thanks

Hi, I have a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Rocky mountain edition and just recently the ''step'' button on my ''information center'' went out. It's the 3rd button out of 4 on the same row. I can't imagine that it's a fuse since the others are lite. Can this button have an individual light bulb behind it that may have gone out? How would I replace it? It drives me nuts to look and see One little button not lite.. a huge pet peeve.. Thanks so much.

My 2003 pontiac Aztek back hatch will sometimes not open with either the key or the inside release button. I did some internet research and found that taking off the battery cable resets something that allows it to function again for about another 3-4 weeks. I then tried pulling fuses and found that fuse 28 (Battery Contol Module) fuse will do the reset. What is the most likely cause? From other internet research I am thinking it may be the power control module. Where is that module located?

1994 Eldorado ETC, it has no dash lights to light the dash, info center buttons, a/c buttons, radio buttons and shifter. I check wiring diagrams in Chilton?s on-line but was unable to find a fuse for these bulbs (i don't have an owner's manual.) Other lights work in the dash like check engine, seat belt, etc. but you can't see the dash at night with the lights on. Any assistance would be great. Thanks in advance.


The dash lights are usually on the tailight fuse so check there. ... 1994 Cadillac DeVille
