    Just replaced the window motor for my driver window, however the wiring harness does not match my door. How do I fix?
    Everything about the new motor is the same as the old motor besides the wiring harness. The plastic head/connector (male) is different than the old motor's connector, therefore does not fit into the door's head/connector( female).

      To replace the antenna motor and mast;
      First you will need to remove the right side carpet/trim pieces in the trunk to gain access to it. In between the hinges you will see the antenna motor, disconnect and unbolt it. You will have to remove the antenna nut on the exterior of the vehicle as well. This can been done carefully with two flat tip screwdrivers held side by side or you can use one and tap it with a hammer, may want to put a rag on the body to prevent scratches if you slip. You should now be able to slide the motor out. There are three or four bolts holding the motor together. Remove these and separate it, pull out all the old mast pieces and put it all back together. Turn the radio on and feed the new mast down into the motor. While holding it have someone else turn the radio off and this will pull the new mast down. The teeth of the mast should face the rear of the vehicle.

      The antenna motor is readily available; www.partstrain.com list the replacement antenna motor from around $61.00 for your vehicle.

      The instrment panel lights not working - may be related to; blown fuse, faulty relay or blown panel bulbs / wiring common to the instrument panel.

      At the expense of sounding dumb, try: 1. turning the light switch to auto. 2. turn the instrument panel button clockwise. 3. check if gear position lights are on.

      If a simple cleaning of the CD does not work, then the CD player / stereo will have to be removed for service or replacement. Keep in mind the CD player service cost may be more expensive than replacing the entire unit.

    I recently crashed my car into a mailbox. Rear end, small crack and bumper seems to have moved forward.
    Car is new, and the bumper to the base of the frame has been dislodged. Still works. Speed of collision was about 10-15 mph.

      No way to tell via the internet (for obvious reasons) how much to repair any body work. The only reliable method for an auto body repair estimate is go to a local auto body shop in your area for a thorough (and hands-on) inspection.

      Check each door latch to see which one is not working properly. Using a scan tool, go under body controls and see which door is open. I know that just about nobody will have a scan tool that can do this, but that is the proper way regardless.

    How to fix turn signals and hazards that dont work at all?
    MY TURN SIGNALS AND HAZARDS DO NOT WORK ANYMORE. FUSES HAVE BEEN CHECKED BUT STILL NOT WORKING.

      This car does not use a traditional replaceable flasher unit like most cars have. Instead the trun signal and hazard flasher operation is controlled by the driver side junction block ECU. Which I believe to be a fancy term for the driver side fuse panel assembly. You will need a wiring schematic to get through this yourself.

    Why won't the door ajar light go off?
    First of all, the remote will not lock at all, it only gives a long beep. I believe there is something wrong with the rear passenger door because it won't lock or unlock when I use the lock all button. If I don't take the battery connection off at night, it's dead ...
