    Do I need to reprogram control for heater/ ventilation system? Or could something else have gone wrong?
    Car is in good condition and kept in heated garage. The heater/ ventilation control (hi/ bi-lev/ lo/ lo & defrost/ defost only) has worked fine since new - until an outing on the COLD January 7 we just endured! After the car sat outdoors for three hours, it ...

      Probably has a bad mode door actuator but this is a 6 hour job. The only programming procedure there is relating to the HVAC system is what is called a cool-down test but if that test were needed there would be leds blinking wildly on the wiper buttons and heater / ac buttons.

      Generally you first raise the hood on the truck. Then, locate the the screws on the top and side of the headlight that hold it in place and remove them. Next unplug the wire connection on the rear of the headlight housing.
      Next, you should be able to slide the headlight out with some force.

      The parts are readily available; try these 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 replacement headlight assemblies from around $64.00 for your vehicle.

      I know how to replace old style headlights. This is not just a headlight replacement it is an assembly replacement. So if anyone knows how to remove the headlight assembly on this truck please advise.

      This site doesn't have an instruction yet to remove the headlights of your specific vehicle, but just take a look to get an idea with other similar cars

    Light around key hole won't go off?
    The light that is around the key hole won't go off when I turn the car off, it stays on continuously. Would this be causing my repeated dead battery?

      The key illumination is on the same circuit as the interior lights which of course illuminate when any door is opened. You did not mention anything about interior / courtesy lamps remaining on so I am assuming that they are not, but it could mean that a door jamb switch is no good (remaining active when door is closed) and that the interior light bulbs are all either missing bulbs or the bulbs are burned out. And yes that will kill your battery. Does this vehicle have a time delay feature that turns off interior lights after like 15 seconds or so after taking key out and closing the door?

      I pulled the fuse on the interior lights yesterday, my overhead lamp was shot. I just went out there and she turned over just like normal. That seemed to have been the culprit! Glad she is fixed!

      The blower motor replacement is easy. Look under the dash on the pasenger side, and you can see it. Its just three screws that hold it in, and unplug it. Then just replace the new one in position.

      *probably* has a bad blower motor resistor. Check and see if blower motor terminals are receiving battery voltage on one wire of the plug and a ground on the other wire of the plug with the engine running and heater and blower turned on highest speed (just use a 12 volt test light) and if there is battery voltage but no ground then the cause is likely a bad blower motor resistor.

      Not difficult to replace, the seals either press in to place, or use weatherstrip sealant to secure.

    Why do all of my lights and gauges stop working every time I turn on a turn signal?
    We replaced the wiring harness and ECU last year and just put a new battery in last night. Been having some starting issues for several months now and were told it was because our battery was low.

      When did this issue begin? You did not clarify if I am to believe it has existed since the wiring harness and ECU was done. Which wiring harness was replaced. The answer cannot be vague. The wiring that connects what components together?

      The issue began right after we replaced the battery last night. The info I know about the wiring harness that was replaced last year is that it needed replaced because the previous wires had been placed over the exhaust manifold (resulting in melting, grounding, and a shorted out ECU). The new one was put in but with the wires going under instead of over.

      WINDOW LIFT MOTOR INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
      Window regulators may vary in design. It will be necessary to obtain a shop manual for
      safe removal, installation and handling of window regulators.
      CABLE TYPE REGULATORS
      IMPORTANT: Some regulator cable spools will unravel if not handled properly. Refer to
      Service Manual for proper removal of Motor from cable spool. Cable style regulators
      require special handling for successful removal and installation of the window lift motor.
      These instructions will help prevent the spool from coming apart and resulting in the
      complete replacement of the motor/regulator assembly.
      • Remove the regulator according to the shop manual. Make sure to support the window
      glass in a safe manner.
      • Unbolt or remove the retaining rivets holding the motor to the regulator.
      • CAREFULLY lift the motor up out of the spool since some spools will come out of the
      housing with the motor. HINT: use a long thin screwdriver to help separate the motor
      from the spool.
      • Remove the motor.
      • Reverse the procedure to install.
      SCISSOR STYLE REGULATORS
      Scissors style regulators have an assist spring to help move the window glass. This spring
      is under pressure at all times. The regulator must be secured BEFORE removing the motor.
      • Remove the regulator according to the shop manual. Make sure to support the window
      glass in a safe manner.
      • BEFORE removing the motor from the regulator it will be necessary to secure the sector
      gear of the regulator by installing a bolt through the regulator body and the sector gear.
      • Drill out any rivets or remove any bolts retaining the motor to the regulator.
      • Reverse the procedure to install.

      Note: not sure if the spring tension has been released yet, hope this helps.

      1. Apply a 12 volts direct to the blower motor connector, if the blower motor doesn't run, replace the blower motor.
      2. In the event the blower motor does run, check the blower motor resistor and the Module Totally Integrated Power, they're both link to the blower motor.
