    Corner light installation
    Just looking for any specific instructions to replace the corner light, driver side. This is a neighbor's car, so I don't have a lot of information; however, I did see a panel/cover over the light under the hood. any best practice suggestions would be appreciated!

      If the front left blinker is not working then the cause lies specifically with the bulb (I am sure that you ruled this out already) or the socket itself or a broken wire leading to the socket. The black wire coming into the socket has to be a ground. Confirm that it is. The wire goes to the front left side of the radiator support.

      It means that the system is low on refrigerant most likely, however, there is one possible other cause depending upon if the car has the optional dual zone climate control whiuch has individual temperature settings for the driver side and pass side, in that case the driver side blend door actuator could be stuck in one position. To confirm this, that would mean that if you were to try to alter the temperature setting for the driver side only while the problem is present that the temperature of the discharge air would remain unchanged.

    Why does my car only blow cold air out the passenger vents?
    when you turn the air-conditioner on, it only blows cold air out the passenger side vents. On max cool or normal or any other setting. The drivers side air that comes out does cool down a little but not cold like other side.Air out put is the same on both sides.

      There is no repair information listed in any publication on how to do this. This is one of those situations (of which there are many) where a mechanic uses his experience to figure out how to access the fasteners. I'm sure it is not difficult but we as mechanics generally would not be able to recall how it is attached even if we ever replaced one.

      I am at a loss here. I looked at the wiring diagram for this vehicle and see absolutely no reference to a front door switch of any kind, nor do I see any circuit that is allowing operation of the courtesy light when a front door is opened. I see only a left and a right REAR door jam switch. There is nothing shown in the diagram for the front doors at all. Obviously there is a circuit that allows the courtesy lights tio illuminate when a front door is opened but at this moment I cannot say how it works because it is not in the diagram.

      Several possibilities; faulty / binding window regulator, faulty window motor, faulty window switch. You will have to remove the inner door panel to even diagnose the issue - this would be your first step.

      With the door panel removed, check to see if the window guide channel is properly lubricated as this condition alone may cause the binding. Next, check the window lift mechanism to make sure the window lift does not stick - over the full up and down travel. Any issues noted at this point would be reason to replace the window regulator.
      Next step, check the window motor itself for function using the window control switch. If the motor operates using the switch - then you can rule out these components as the issue.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the window regulator (without motor) from around $26.00 for your vehicle.
