    Left rear light comes on with headlights but doesn't flash with turn signal or get brighter with brake.
    Hi, my left rear light comes on when I turn on the headlights but when I press the brakes it doesn't get brighter or flash when I turn the turn signal on. All the other lights work fine. Just changed the bulbs too.

      You have to use a 12 volt test light to check for the blinking battery voltage by grounding the test light lead and touching the inside pins of the bulb socket to see if battery voltage is there or not and if it is not then you may have a bad BCM (body control module) but this type repair is dealer level.

    My blower motor not working. Is there a fuse in the main fuse box to check for? Looked in manual and can't find one.
    Tried to put in a resistor in behind the glove compartment. Still no air and it started smoking. Took out the resistor and it was partly melted. Just a bad after market one from my local parts store? Should I use a factory part? Also how do you test the blower ...

      Go to dealer parts dept. Buy a Blower Motor Control Module and replace it. You can check the blower motor first by jumping 12 volts and ground to the two terminals on the motor directly from battery. if it runs its good except if it is drawing too much amperage while it runs.

      Replace the mode door actuator. Get a repair manual to locate it, you need the steps and the pics with the steps.

      Check the Intelligent Power Module. According to the wiring diagrams, it controlled all the devices described above.

      1. Verify the ignition switch position is indicated correctly in the Body Control Module (BCM) and the Front Control Module (FCM). The ignition switch has a built in position sensor that reports the position of the ignition switch to the BCM. The BCM then broadcasts the position to all the modules that need the information on the BUS circuit.

      2. Check circuit T751 and T752 at the Intelligent Power Module (IPM) for voltage with the engine running. These circuits should have battery voltage only during cranking and should go to 0 volts with the vehicle running. If there is any voltage on these circuits, the FCM will de-energize the accessory relay, which causes the named circuits to shut down, even with the vehicle running. Voltage typically comes from the wire harness due to battery acid from the battery. Voltage gets tracked into these circuits and causes the FCM to shut down the accessory relay. Another cause could be any add-on system such as a remote starter system wired into these circuits.

      3. I realize that this diagnostic requires a professional scanner and that this likely means that this is NOT a DIY diagnostic. There is a strong probability that the ignition switch is bad (NOT a sure thing). There could also be damaged wiring under the Intelligent Power Module.

    Rear hatch door will not close electrically or manually. No previous problems or damage.
    A small click can heard at the hatch door motor area when you use either the remote or the consul button to try to operate the rear hatch door.

      Lift Gate Support Struts might have no pressure in them which will cause the door to be too heavy for it to move on its own.

      I replaced the struts eliminating the stress on the lift motor, and all works fine now. Thanks

      I am missing the meaning of some of your sentences. Some facts though. If the rear fan is not blowing, the cause can be the resistor can be the cause, especially if you direct wired the fan back there and it works. I don't understand what you mean by "back fan is glassblowing not cooling" What is that? Also, what do you mean "affect the compressor from picking up" ?

    Secondary hood latch won't open
    battery is dead. can't jump, charge or change. It is 10 degrees outside. vehicle is outside.

      The only quick answer to this have the car towed to a repair facility. The alternative is get it pushed to someones garage where the temperature allows working on getting the hood open or leave the car where it is and borrow a large kerosene fired space heater (like 200,000 btu) and point it toward the front of the car while you work the hood latch.

    Why are all the warning lights on, most of the electric options don't work. and I can't shift the car out of park.
    The relays for the wipers Are clicking away and the wipers are off. The radio, and pwr windows don't work. It starts runs but I can't shift out of park. Oh, the headlights don't work either. I replaced the BCM and reseated all the plugs on the bottom of the ...

      I doubt you will get through this without professional help. You need professional level scan tool $2000 + to read BCM codes, also, did the replacement BCM get flashed / programmed as they are not plug and play?

    Where do i find the h11 fuse to change
    my low beam light is out

      There is no fuse h11 that controls the left headlamp low beam. if you have a low beam out and have already replaced the bulb and still no good and you confirmed no voltage at the headlight bulb connector then the cause is likely to be the (TIPM) Totally Integrated Power Module which is essentially the engine compartment fuse box which is not serviceable. There are some fuses in there that can be replaced but there is no fuse that controls solely one headlamp.

      Your details can be understood two different ways and I don't want top have to provide two different detailed answers so clarify what you mean. If you are saying that the blower will not shut off, say that. If you are saying that the blower speeds are all working and your issue is that you cannot control the temperature of the air no matter what the setting, say that. Or are you saying something else?

      I cannot control the temperature of the air no matter what the setting, It is always HOT.

    Fuses Keep Blowing?!
    I have a 1998 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. The issue is that the 10 amp fuse on the driver's side labeled INT LAMPS/RADIO MEM keeps blowing. When I first bought the car the radio was working until I got home and the fuse blew. I later had a new stereo installed but ...

      Check for a shorting out pink wire at the illuminated vanity mirrors. If you see no obvious defect with the wiring at either the left or right vanity mirrors (it would make it much easier if you could see the fault at either mirror), get access to the bottom (hard wired side) of the fuse box and locate the 18 gauge PINK wire that gets battery voltage off of one leg of the #5 fuse that keeps blowing. Cut that wire but leave slack so you can reattach another wire to it after the short is confirmed by snipping this wire. (if the mirrors have no battery voltage going to them then the circuit cannot blow a fuse)

      1. Check the coolant level, the heater may not operate with lack of coolant.
      2. See this Fig. Fig. 2: Location of the radio and HVAC control panel mounting fasteners @ www.autozone.com
