      The part you need to fix this is called a Cable Schlep and has to be bought at the dealer parts dept. You *might* be able to find the broken wire in this cable ass'y and repair the wire if you are real good.

    Gas gauge and temp gauge not working. Whats the best place to start looking?
    All other gauges are working also the low fuel light.

      If they went out simultaneously, then the instrument cluster is the culprit, i would start there (since those gauges are for two different systems) . However, if you don't know exactly they time of malfunction and if they were apart, then you'd have to track the temp sensor in engine block ( not coolant temp sensor) and check it. For fuel gauge, there's a fuel sending unit,(floater) ..check the sending unit and wires to it...if you're electrically savvy, you can check for Resistance and jump wires for both and get the gauges to work if the sensors were faulty.

      Check with the local tire dealers in your area, or try these websites;,

      As far as the ac system and repairs - the actual costs to repair would depend on the specifc problem and the components / plus the labor to fix. Without more details as to the actual problem you are having - it's hard to give specific pricing.

      It could be the drivebelt first :check and see if it's cracked or glazed .If you bought the van used and you don't know if it has been replaced then it can't hurt to replace it. If it's not the belt it may be the regulator or the alternator it self. Faulty wires in the charging circuit.

    It seems that there is no electric going to the compressor,i have changed the high &the low presser switch .
    I have also checked the fuse,the ac relay .i also stuck my test light in th low pressure switch wire and the compressor came on.could this mean that maby the ground wire has a broken circuit?What do you think i am doing wrong?

      I have ram too and about a year ago the A/C stopped.So I shook all the ground wires that I could see and to my amazement the A/C started back up.But, the A/C was replaced two or three years earlier so I did'nt expect anything to be wrong with it. I felt that it had to be something simple. Good luck with it.

      No, the instrument panel cluster needs to be replaced. Very common problem.
      3/4/2013 CVO
      Maitre HCA, please allows my two cents answer. Try this, do a powertrain control module reset by disconnecting both battery terminals for half an hour and rubbing each other terminals for a few minutes. It might restore the instrument clusters. That trick worked on my 92 Dodge Caravan 3.0. Hope this helps.

    How do I get the radio to reset after changing the battery in 2011 Sonata?
    Changed the battery and the radio will not come on now.
    • HouseCallAuto
      3/3/2013 HouseCallAuto
      Your new Sonata came with an owners manual and lots of other documents and thin booklets and miscellaneous papers, many of which you never looked at after the day you received the car. Among all those papers was a document that *probably* was the size and shape of a credit card. This document had your radio code on it and you were supposed to keep this document in a safe place. Now you know......... In the absence of knowing the radio code, you can call Hyundai service dept and they will look up the code for you and tell you.....for a price.

    Both seatbelts are extended fully and will not retract.They seemed to have happened at the same time.
    I lent the truck to a friend and it came back to me with both driver and passenger seat belts extended fully and they will not retract. It seems odd that they both would get stuck. Is there a fuse that controls these or do I need new seats with working seatbelt?
    • Jimm
      3/3/2013 Jimm
      There is no fuse - the seatbelt retractors work on a spring. If the retractors can be removed, it's possible to try to unstick - otherwise they must be replaced.
      There was also a safety recall for the seatbelts - check the NHTSA campaign #: 01v119000 for the Dodge Ram to see if this may apply to your vehicle.
      Check the many different on-line auto parts sources; such as -, and for the replacement parts.

      Quoting online without seeing the damage in person is impossible to do with any accuracy. Visiting a trusted and reputable paint and body shop in the local area is your best bet.
