    Power Window Problem
    Window will not go up or down, rocks slightly and motor makes noise when either switch is pressed. Window must be lowered to disconnect it from the motor. Since it won't move how do can it be lowered?

      Remove the inner door panel to access the window and lift motor / regulator. Lower the window manually -once the panel is removed.

      Check the various on-line vendors;,,, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the power window motor from around $16.00 for your vehicle.

    Heat only comes out when temperature is turned to max (90 deg)
    I can only get heat when I turn it to the max of 90 degrees, and then the system puts out so much heat it is unbearable. So I am alternating between cool air at the 85 degree setting and warm air at the 90 degree setting. Incidentally - just in case it helps - the ...

    The doors wont lock when I put car in drive. The door locks work all other ways.
    All locks work fine with the remote or pushing the button. Suspect a bad relay but don't know where it is. Any ideas?

    The A/C and Heater fan does not blow air at all. Why does this occur when the motor is good and there's power to it?
    I've checked the fuses. I took the fan out and it runs from a battery. I tested the wire coming to the fan motor and it gets power and will range from 3 amps to 11 when the fan speed is adjusted on the dash. When the fan is turned on and off, a small noise ...

      Do you have automatic temp control or manual? What color was the wire you checked for voltage? Coming off the battery should be high-speed, only.
      7/31/2014 jdl

      The diagram is manual ac. Dark blue wire with light green tracer is voltage. The orange wire with black tracer is ground.
      With this diagram, the function switch and resistors are on the ground circuit.
      7/31/2014 Darin
      coming off of the battery was high speed only.
      the chord that connects to the motor had one red wire and one black with wire with red stripes that would range from the 3 to 11.
      there is both automatic and manual speed control for the fan.
      7/31/2014 jdl
      Evidently my wiring diagram colors and the colors you mentioned don't match. So, red wire is voltage to blower motor and black wire with red tracer is ground? You might try a redundant ground, see if blower motor works?
      7/31/2014 jdl
      I have seen faulty blower motors that would run intermittently.

    Ignition key turns car does not start , not battery or starter.

    The heating and air conditioning unit blow hot air when the fan is turned on.
    As soon as the car is warmed up if the fan is turned on hot air.No matter what setting the controls are on.The car runs fine with the system off. But when any setting is selected, air , max air ,heat, or anything , the hot air begins.

    Why would dome lights only come on when driver's is opened and by light switch?
    I will be changing lcm in the near future. Would this problem be related to bad lcm? Thanks in advance

      What you posted sounds normal to me. I don't see the problem? Most dome lights will come on when you open the door. Maybe I misunderstood?
      5/30/2014 Mike
      Sorry, I probably did not explain properly. Dome lights ONLY come on when driver's door is opened. They do not come on when other doors are opened.

      Again thanks.

      The lcm gets a signal from the door ajar switch to turn on the light. I hate to see you replace the lighting control module and then it still not work? There could be some applicable trouble codes on this system, B type codes. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. I just don't know if they will check B type codes?
      5/31/2014 Mike
      Thanks for the information. The lcm has to be replaced anyhow. The main problem is the headlights (I understand this is typical for this vehicle). Lately Ihave been having many (unrelated?) electrical problems. I am hopeful that this lcm will cure many of them.

      Again thanks

    How to recharge a/c system
    I replaced a leaky suction line, do I need to add PAG oil or will it still be in the compressor? The system was empty. I have 134A to recharge the system, should I invert the cans or tilt them back and forth?

      You have to evacuate the air from the system before you add refrigerant. You cannot do this because you do not have the experience nor the vacuum pump and hoses with fittings.
