    Hvac blower alternates from high to low speed
    When I set my blower to high it will blow at high for about 30 seconds then cut back to low for a few minutes. Cold it be the blower motor resistor?

      Check under the dashboard (glove box) if you can't see a rectangular shape with electrical connector on it, then you have to remove your blower motor housing to see the blower motor resistor.

      my blower alternates from max to low ( blows max for maybe 30 seconds then back to low for maybe 3 mins ). Do you think it could be the resistor

    My Air conditioning vent door flaps loudly and repeatedly when the air conditioner comes on and starts blowing air.
    The vent flapping open and close repeatedly sounding like flipping a deck of cards between your hands. This only occurs when the AC starts up after sitting idle a while and ends after a period of between 3 and 5 minutes of multiple vent shutter movement.

      Try to check for battery voltage and ground at headlight electrical connector with a multitester on the dim headlight. If battery voltage is present, trace the ground circuit for the headlamp electrical connector, then clean and repair as necessary.

      And if the voltage at the headlight electrical connector is significantly less than the voltage at the battery, refer to the headlight wiring diagram of your vehicle to troubleshoot and locate the voltage drop.

      First try resetting the VSC by cycling the on-off button. It's located below the dash just about in line with your right knee. Feel around under there and you'll find two buttons about 2" apart. One resets the tire pressure warning and the other turns the VSC on and off. Your newer model will probably be different, but it's a place to look. I forgot which is which.

      Or you could check your owners' manual . . .

      I can also see the ABS/Wheel sensor causing problems for the VSC. Get it scanned, lots of possibilities, i dont even want to guess because i dont want to send you on a wild goose chase.

      If they're caps they should just pop off by prying at them with a flat head screwdriver(cover tip with electrical tape if theres something you don't want to scratch), if they're plastic rivets and you don't have the proper tool then using 2 flat head screwdrivers to pry them out(one on each side) would work

      These units were known to be a real pain for owners and we changed them quite frequently. Do you have a way to disconnect the car battery? 10mm wrench?

      If you would please disconnect the battery for 1-2 minutes, reconnect it and then try to insert the CD's. This is a way for us to try and reboot the player, it is done this way because even when the player is off, it still has internal power. This method gets rid of it completely.

      It look like if you want to use the 6 Disc changer then you will need to replace the unit (not uncommon). The most cost effective way, if you want to keep the vehicle stock OEM, is to get one from a salvage yard or even Ebay like this one.... http://cgi.ebay.com/.../...rQ5fAudioQ5fVideo


      Unhook the negative cable from the battery to prevent electric shock when handling the wiring components. Use pliers to remove the battery cable nut, and then lift the cable away.

      2
      Detach the climate-control panel from the dash. Grasp the panel around the edges. Pull it firmly to unhook it. It's not necessary to unplug the connections. Simply move the panel away to access the stereo and air-vent panel.


      Remove the two gold bolts from behind the climate-control panel with a 10mm socket. Look above these bolts to find two additional 10mm bolts mounted at an angle. Remove these bolts to detach the stereo.

      4
      Pull the stereo panel away from the dash. Behind the panel, you'll find several connections, including the plug for the digital clock, emergency flasher, antenna cable and stereo-wiring harness. Unplug each connection to separate the stereo.

    How to clear messages on display that have already been addressed. Tail light out and windshield fluid low.

      If you do not use the designated factory genuine bulbs the message center will not clear. The bulb outage module gets an incorrect feedback signal / resistance that does not fall within tolerance. One typical example is replacing the high mount stop lamp bulb with a #194 bulb instead of the factory # 921 bulb, they both will fit and they both will light up but have different electrical usage and resistances. The washer fluid bottle may have a bad fill level sensor or a broken wire to the sensor.
