      I got on here because I have the same problem with a 2002. I don't want to take to have it fixed until it completely fails but it is happening more frequently. I'll follow your post and I'll let you know if I can figure it out.

      your mode doors are controlled by engine vacuum. you'll have to isolate the leak on that vacuum circuit and fix it.

    Why does the fuse for my interior lights keep blowing ?
    ive tried unplugging each one of the lights one by one to see if the problem was from one light in particular but the fuse keeps blowing anyway

      If a fuse keeps blowing, it usually means something is amiss in the circuit. The wiring should be checked along with the components in the circuit to determine if there's a short or other problem.

      The fuse for the windshield wiper circuit, for example, may blow if ice or debris builds up in the cowl areas and interferes with the movement of the wiper arms. If a fuse blows in a motor circuit (heater blower motor, cooling fan motor, power seat or window, electric fuel pump, etc.), it often indicates a shorted motor. If a fuse in a light circuit blows, look for wiring or connector shorts. Adding driving lights may also overtax the headlight circuit unless a separate circuit is provided for the driving lights. An A/C fuse will blow if the system is low on refrigerant and is working unusually hard, or if the compressor is hanging up. Stereo systems with high amp boosters should also have their own electrical circuit with fuse protection to avoid overloading the normal radio circuit.

      i really appreciate the your answer. so just to be clear what i have to do is check the wiring for my interior lights to see if theyre pinched? also by the connectors do you mean the plug that connects directly to the light unit?

      If the gears are stripped or the motor burned out you will have to find a good used sunroof. It isn't real hard to change. It's better to have 2 people just because it's bulky.

      Just moved your question here Willie

      Hello Bud,

      Check your cruise control cable it may be frayed, about your switch there are two screws in the back of your steering wheel remove those and you can get to your controls you have to be careful not to trigger the air bag while you are doing it. try your auto store for that color.

      If you cannot do it someone else can. Try penetrating oil, maybe air tools. The bolts may even break but you can buy new if needed.

    How do we get into the mirror to put screws back in
    My Mirror is hanging down looks like the screws to hold it on are broken everything still works but need to get inside to replace screw. thank you

      I just took mine apart on my 97 so it may not be identical. There is a metal block on the windshield. The mirror has a metal piece that snaps over the w/s part. The metal piece is riveted to the mirror shaft. If the metal piece came off there are no screws, something broke. Inspect it carefully and see if that's the same. If it is you may have to get a replacement from a junkyard.

    What is wrong when the blower works but no air comes from the vents on the AC
    When I start the car, there is a clicking under the dash. I hear the blower working but no air come from the dash vents but there is air flow from the floor vents
     
    • HouseCallAuto

      The clicking is the mode door actuator failure. The mode door actuator is what opens and closes the doors that direct where the airflow exits from.
