      Replace the window regulator. Remove the interior door panel for access to the regulator.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse.com, wwwpartsgeek.com, www.autoanything.com and www.rockauto.com - to list only a few sources. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the driver side front window regulator assembly from around $9.50 for your vehicle.

    Cant get flashers to blink and I cant find the problem. Any ideas?
    Replaced blinker switch 2x, and the flasher. All 4 light bulbs are good. Hazards work fine. When you turn on blinker it stays on but dosnt flash.

      The turn signals and hazards have 2 separate flashers. You may have changed the wrong one. The flashers are likely the same type and are interchangable. If hazards work then switch flashers and try blinkers. These thermal flasher relays burn out often.

      Use the Digital Voltmeter, on the turn flasher the pin A has a 12 volts when the ignition is in run, if it doesn't have enough 12 volts, then the flasher won't toggle. If it has 12 volts, the flasher might be bad.
      The wiring diagrams from the www.bbbind.com doesn't show any other circuits involved in this blinker.
      Note: the hazard flasher is using a different 12 volts source.

      The shifter light bulb number is a standard 194. Remove the horseshoe clip on the back of the shift knob with a small screwdriver, remove the two screws that hold the shifter plate and you should have access to the light

    Radio.volume goes up and down on its own
    has steering wheel radio controls but not touched and it still goes high or low on its own how can i fix it, is there a fuse?
     
    • Jimm

      There is no in-line fuse for the controls. The button contacts were made of a surprisingly soft rubbery compound that literally melted over time. The heat of the incandescent bulbs in the buttons were the culprit. The compound would melt into a gray toothpaste-like substance. There are write-ups for fixes on the web, and on different Pontiac websites. The fix involves cutting toothpicks to length and using them for contacts instead of that rubbery nonsense

    How do you remove the third brake light for bulb replacement?
    The third brake light is under the spoiler...it has 2 screws on the red plastic lens but removing these does not seem to release the lens for bulb replacement. Any ideas? Thanks.

      I have a 91 firebird formula with a/c issues. It only works in max. and I need help with this.
      I do have a leak in the system but, it has nothing to do with what is wrong. It could be the controls. I think I have a used one. That or a vacuum problem or even a relay problem. Not sure. Please any suggestion would be appreciated. [email protected]

      The blower motor is controlled by the blower motor resistor ( Low, Medium Low and Medium high ) and the blower high speed relay.
      Replace the blower motor resistor as necessary.
      Note: you could open your own post and ask for a question.

    How do I put up a hanging brake hose to keep it from catching on something on the road
    I have a brake hose that came loose near the driver side rocker panel and I need a way of attaching it to a place underneath the van to keep it from catching on something on the road

      Easiest thing to do is get some zipties from parts store and attach the brakeline to any bracket,hole,etc thats secure enough to hold.If you cant find anything to attach the ziptie to,get a couple self tapping screws and small plastic clips that will loop around brakeline and attach to framerail or underbody

      Its probably your weather stripping around pass door or the sealant around your front windshield thats under the plastic/metal molding.Unless youve got a sunroof thats leaking

      I have ruled out molding around door. No sunroof or T-Tops. Called Glass shop about cost of windshield seal or checking. They suggested going to body shop removing cowl & having weep holes cleaned. I checked on removing cowl & It has 6 o so plastic pins that I removed but it seems to be sealed to windshield. I'm afraid of breaking window or cowl. So not to sure when or how much a body shop will cost. So hope the rain will stop for a while. We have had 18 of the last 19 days with rain. THANKS

    My Air Conditioner is always on!
    Recently the AC Condenser was replaced, and the system flushed. If you turn the AC on, with either the standard flow through or recirculating mode, the AC does not cycle on/off. That is, the duty cycle is 100% and the engine compartment becomes really hot. The ...

      There is an ambient air temperature sensor in the a/c system - that may be faulty. Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.partstrain.com, www.partsgeek.com, www.carpartswarehouse.com, or www.rockauto.com for the replacement parts.
      For example, they (RockAuto) list the ambient air temperature sensor from around $6.30 for your vehicle.

      Thank you Jimm. Would you know the location where I can find the sensor? I looked online as much as I could to no avail. It's a 2005 Pontiac G6. Much obliged.

      Maybe a problem with blower motor resistor? High speed doesn't use a resistor, lower speeds do use a resistor. The resistor assembly is under right side of dash, between blower motor and front of dash. It has a multiwire connector.

      Also check applicable fuses. There is hi blo fuse and another fuse for the lower speeds. Your owners manual should tell you which fuse is which.

      If there is no access from the underside of the stop light then the plastic bezel is removed from inside, usually has clips retailing it or two screws on the side.

      Display OIL LIFE RESET on the driver information center (DIC).
      Press and hold the ENTER button for at least one second. An ACKNOWLEDGED display message will appear for 3 seconds or until the next button is pressed. This will tell you the system has been reset.
      Turn the key OFF. If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL light comes back on and stays on when you start your vehicle, the engine oil life system has not been reset. Repeat the procedure.

      Component electronics could been shorted or insulated by the water penetration. Use air compression to drive out the excess water and the hair dryer to dry out any wet spot.
