    How do I tell if the fan switch is bad? I lost the medium speed. I have low and high.
    I replaced the resistor thinking it was the problem. How do you get the control head out of the dash to check?

      You can test the switch wiring at the blower resistor. Just test for power at the resistor wiring on each wire while changing speeds on the switch. That will test the switch but dont rule out a bad blower resistor. Even a brand new part can be bad right out of the box. I have seen it several times. Just last week I replace blower resistor on 2000 Impala. It still did not work so I tore apart dashboard and tested all the switches and wiring. I finally reinstalled old part which had low and high and it worked better than the new part. I spent hours diagnosing a brand new part. I returned it to Autozone and they gave me a new one no problem.

      If no windows are moving from any door swich you probably have a bad fuse. Check your fuse box cover for info on which fuse to check. The owners manual also has fuse info.

      See this site and use their instructions to retrieve the fault codes.

      GM 1983-95 vehicles OBD1 codes self-retrieval

      As the name implies, you can get the codes for GM cars or trucks yourself if the model of your vehicle is made before 1995, this means as soon as you see “check engine light” in your dash, you can get the code in minutes if you want.
      To list a few fault codes and see the ideas.

      GM common codes for OBD1 (for vehicles made before 1995)
      12 System normal
      13 oxygen sensor circuit open
      14 coolant sensor high resistance or shorted
      15 coolant sensor circuit low or open
      16 direct ignition system (DIS) fault in circuit
      17 cam position sensor fault
      18 crank or cam sensor error
      19 crank sensor circuit fault
      21 tps sensor out of range
      22 tps sensor signal voltage low
      23 intake air temp sensor out of range, low
      24 vehicle speed (vss) sensor circuit fault
      25 air temp sensor sensor out of range, high...etc ( etcetera )..........................

    Outside mirror on passenger side
    I cant tilt the outside mirror. I only have the problem this side and not the drivers side. I would like to replace both mirrors but cant figure out where the wire connection is. How do I replace them?
    • bear.1216

      The wires run inside the door and connect to the harness inside the door panel. You have to remove the door panels to access the wiring.

      Turn Signal Switch

      Combination switches operate wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmers

    I'm looking for an estimate of the cost to replace my ignition (key system).
    I have had two instances where the key won't turn when inserted. I've been told there may be metal filing in the ignition jambing the tumblers. The key does not have a security chip. I would like to know what to expect from my mechanic as to how lng the job is ...

      I wouldn't go with a used one , If the key does turn it is fairly easy to replace it I would guess about an hour labor . If the key wont turn it could be twice that. plus whatever the cost of the new key and cylinder is

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as;,, and - to list only a few sources. For example, they (RockAuto) list the ignition lock cylinder (includes keys) from around $91.70 for your vehicle.
    • HouseCallAuto
      9/2/2013 HouseCallAuto
      Between $300 and $350 for parts and labor total. This estimate is for replacing a lock cylinder (also known as a Passlock sensor) and does not include any other parts. It should include coding the cylinder to match original key. Job takes about 2.5 hours. Parts will be sold higher than what RockAuto sells them for if a shop is doing the job, remember that the shop makes money on parts - normal.

      Check the heater core coolant hoses and make sure they both well tightened or the heater core itself may develop a tiny crack which allows the coolant to seep out

      everything under the hood looks good. Is there an easy way to take a look behind the dashboard without taking it apart
      9/1/2013 CVO
      Back the front seats as far as the seat rail allows it, use a flash light and try to look at under the dash. Or call rental equipment agency and see if they have in stock a device the plumber is using to look it their clogged pipes.

      Took it in to Chevy Dealer. They couldn't find anything wrong. They ran heat then a/c still got nothing. No signs of water or antifreeze anywhere except at manifold. Said there was small exterior leak. Said I should address it within 3 months. So what's the sticky stuff in my car. Said it was ok to drive it. Going 200 mi. today. What do u think
      9/3/2013 CVO
      Make a careful visual inspection of the entire cooling system, and then PRESSURE TEST the cooling system and radiator cap. A pressure test will reveal internal leaks.
      . A good system should hold 12 to 15 psi for 15 minutes or more with no loss in pressure. If it leaks pressure, there is an internal coolant leak
      Local auto parts stores such as O'Reilly or Autozone have a free loan tool program. Obtain a radiator pressure tester and follow their instructions to run the test.

      In my opinion, use rental cars at Cheap and peace of mind. Hope this helps.

    Is there a Heater Control Valve on a 02 chevy tracker? If so, exactly where is it?
    My tracker has no heat, radiator is full, new thermostat, I've flush the heater core & my son says the heater door is opening and closing, so I'm at wit and will have another cold winter with no defroster. Oh btw the blower blows like a hurricane.

      Remove a heater hose from the heater core and start the engine and confirm that there is obvious flow. Also want to know if heater hoses are hot to the touch with engine running.

    Need some input as to why my light is on that says Service Air Bag.
    All the collision sensors in front and back look good. I unplugged them and checked the connection. I checked the connections under the seats. There are no codes that come up when I run the scanner. Not sure where to look next. Any suggestions?

      Not sure what's the scanner model, you're using to retrieve the dtc's.
      See this OTC 9450 OBDII Scan Tool, ABS and SRS Code Reader at for $109.00 dollars.

      The body shop repairs will vary by the individual shop even in the same location / area. Best bet is to have one or more auto body repair shops in your area provide an estimate after a thorough (and hands-on) inspection of the work needed. There is no accurate method to determine auto body repairs via the internet - for obvious reasons.

      To find a shop, you can try the 'Find-A-Shop' feature on the AutoMD website.
