      Arnold read your question and think it would be wise to check the fuse's where ever they located and also wiring to the gauges from the fuse holder, could be a lose wire not making contact.Make sure all wires on cluster are tight.

    The driver side window on my car won't go down, my son says the probable cause is the motor. How much would this cost ?
    There is 30,000 miles on my vehicle. We've had a very hot summer, I was thinking perhaps the window got stuck in the up position. Every times I start the car, I try the window, with no results, all the others work fine. I 1st noticed it several weeks ago, the check ...

      Warning lights are only there for the Engine/Transmission, Not luxuries like power windows.

      Could be a couple of things,No power getting to the Window switch, Window switch might be faulty. Window regulator motor could be dead, Bad/Burnt wiring and the list goes on. Until you get it checked out by a mechanic/auto electrician you wont know what $$ you're up for.

      Word of advice, Check the fuse first and go from there.

      I have to know which system is in this car as there were two. One is called Electronic Automatic Temperature Control (EATC) which is the optional fancy system with electronic display or it has the regular manual heating and a/c system.

      1. Perform the self test on the EATC control head. If there are any memory codes still in the system, the system will not function as it should unless the codes are cleared.

      2. To enter the self-test, press the OFF and FLOOR buttons simultaneously and then press the AUTOMATIC button within two seconds. The display will show a dashed line in the center of the display window. The test may run as long as 30 seconds. Record all DTCs displayed.

      3. To exit self-test and clear all DTCs, press F-Defrost button. The vacuum fluorescent display window will show 888 and all function symbols for one second. Then, the EATC system will turn OFF (display blank) and all DTCs will be cleared.

      I haven't looked at your seat wiring. Is the seat back electrical? If so, that is where i would start checking. In the past, on different makes and models, I have found a metal part of the seat frame broken. I took the seat out and welded it back together, reinstalled, it worked ok. In the past on different makes and models, I have swapped out the driver seat with the passenger seat. I worked ok. Is that the proper fix? no, but it might get you out of a bind.

      Fairly simple task - they will pop off using a flat blade screwdriver. Try the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the specific steps.

    Where is the ac orifce tube?

    • Jack
      6/26/2012 Jack
      In the evaporator tube where the high side a/c line (smaller line) enters the Evaporator core. You will need to carefully pull it out with needle nose pliers after discharging the system of refridgerant. If it has any metal in it , you will need to replace the compressor and clean out the complete system. Jack.

    The dirivers side front and back power windows will not operate. I changed the master power switch but that didn't help
    I check for broken wires in the door and could not find any. I am getting power to the switch and the ground is good. I have power down to the connector for the motor. I connected the motor directly to the battery and it did not work. I think it is the motor. I ...

      Not a DIY job if you never did one before. the regulator has to be removed first. This requires drilling out the regulator to glass rivets (yes rivets, special ones too) then requires removing the glass from the door and then the regulator. Other regulator rivets have to be drilled out as well. Have a pro do it.
      6/25/2012 Jacob
      Thanks. I thought I could just remove the window motor by removing the three bolts that hold it and replace the motor without removing the regulator.
