    Why does the dashboard light go on and off?
    The dashboard lights go on and off when driving. I just noticed that this is more frequent when I turn on the blinkers, air condition, or any feature that utilizes electricity. This is annoying especially during the night as it makes visibility very poor.

    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; list the replacement antenna motor from around $61.00 for your vehicle.

      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.

      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.
