    Ac and dash lights go out and intermittently come back on
    59,000 miles. Will sometimes happen when car starts, or while driving. Then all of a sudden they will come back on.

      With intermittent issues, you have to test when problem is ongoing. Some of the components you mentioned, may have a fuse that goes hot with the key on. So, check for voltage, on that fuse when the problem is going. Use a test lite. Go from there. If no voltage have to check feed to and from ignition switch.

      ok, some addl info...;at first when the dash went black and the ac went out, the windows and radio
      went out too. Now, the windows and radio still work and I can feel some cool air coming out down below but nothing from the vents above. Any ideas?

      As far as the hvac, I'd check for applicable trouble codes, see if anything comes up? Next, I'd have to check actuators/directional doors under the dash.

      Sounds kinda like the heater core but usually its just the pass. side that gets wet when one goes out.u could check under the pass side dash and see if it feels like thats were the water is coming from. The heater core may be in a black plastic box kind of behind the glove box. Its a little hard to get to. I changed one about a year ago and it took about an hour. But I think thats were I would start. Hope this helps some and good luck to ya

      Mine stopped rolling up, I think it might be the wire feed going into the regulator. Good luck, you run along anything different, let me know?

    Why do my dash lights dim in the daylight, but brighten in shadows and at night. They no longer adjust.
    This began to occur just before my battery failed, and they did not reset to normal mode with a new battery.

      No way to tell via the internet (for obvious reasons) how much to repair any body work. The only reliable method for an auto body repair estimate is go to a local auto body shop in your area for a thorough (and hands-on) inspection.

    Why won't my windshield wipers turn off.
    have already changed the switch
    • GT500Knights

      It is possible that the switched side of the relay for this system is stuck in the closed position.

      Below I have included an image that shows a diagnostic procedure for the wiper system. If you need any additional electrical diagrams or diagnostic charts let me know.

    Disconnected battery cables, reconnected cables now fuel gauge always shows full
    100000 miles,was told disconnect battery cables touch them together for 10 seconds and reconnect same results the gauge always goes to the full level

      Touching these cables together discharges any remaining electricity in the vehicle and resets the vehicle computer and would clear engine error codes in most circumstances. Your problem could be a stuck floater on the fuel pump, could of happened last time you filled up your car, if that's the case I would fill up the tank fully and then see if it starts to work again. If not, the sender unit is going to be the issue.

    Windshield wiper switch
    How to change out the switch
    • HouseCallAuto

      Don't replace the switch if the wipers are running continuous because it will not solve it. AutoZone has step by step replacement procedure on their website with pics.

    How do I remove the right outside mirror?
    I scraped it nearly off backing into the garage. I have to replace the whole assembly.
    • HouseCallAuto

      In almost all cases the door trim panel has to be removed and then the mirror mounting bolts are right there. So, find a video on YouTube on how to remove the trim panel because every car is different and if you do not follow details, plastic will break.

    The power door locks don`t work
    78,000 I was told by the dealer that my door lock module needs to be replaced The locks don`t work from any of the doors
    • jdl

      I'm sure the dealership could do better testing than I can from here. I'd check applicable fuses. I'd check for applicable trouble codes dealing with door lock modules or communications.

      My info showed a rim module that can control all the other door lock modules. It shows to be on the back of rear seat. I can't tell you from here that the module is faulty?

      there is linkage under the cowl something must have broke under there. for starts pull the wiper arm off and see if the stud it goes on is stripped if its not pull the plastic piece that's under your wiper arms you will see something broken under there.

      Just tell the dealer to fix your horn, they do not need further instruction than that. I hope that you did not get billed for having your horn "fixed" by your mechanic except maybe a small checkout fee.
