    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?
    • HouseCallAuto

      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 ...

      Your circuit board could be bad. Sometimes it is a connection issue, but likely a board problem. Easiest to order a reman cluster online and replace it.

    Heater air vent control does not work when switching to front or floor
    Air flow motor is in working order, when turning the heater the hot air does not flow to front or floor, it is only the cool air present flowing to front and floor, heater core presents really hot, it seems to be the ventilation control issue, need help.

      Is it not changing modes? Floor to front to defrost? Or is it not switching from hot to cold? Either way it is likely that your servomotors are sticking, listen for ticking noises from behind the dash.

    Need to replace the map light lightbulb; do you have this item?
    • Jimm

      There are no auto parts sold directly from the AutoMD website. Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as;,, or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the courtesy lamp bulb from around $0.59 and the dome light bulb from around $0.16 for your vehicle. Be sure to remove the old bulb and compare the specific bulb type numbers for an exact match.

      at first your car is getting older and older however the electronic system is also,the electric system box have to be cleaned by an expert or the fuses have to be renew,it would have some powder or dust in it .it would have prevented flowing the electric to cables.. by the way the oxidation on the connectios also come out this kind of problem..
