    Why is my radio not turning on?
    The car has over 30,000 miles on it (very little for a car of its age). The radio was working just fine yesterday, but cannot turn on now. The engine and heat are working fine. I'm thinking it has something to do with the battery. Should I take it to the mechanic, ...

    SRS light stays on at all times
    SRS light stays on. I was told it is a problem with the passenger restraint and that a dealer should fix it free of charge. Is this true? I don't know the specific code.

      Check these various on-line vendors;,,, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the alternator (remanufactured) from around$108.00 for your vehicle. Of course, this is only the alternator - depending on the repair shop, you may figure 0.5-0.75 hours labor, so at a rate of perhaps $100.00 per hour, either $50.00 to $75.00 for the installation.

      By the way, the best time to obtain cost quotes - or inquire about an expense for any repair - is before the task is started.

      Hey Jim,

      Thanks for your reply. Well I was thinking the same thing for the cost of the part (right around $105). On the invoice, the mechanic charged me $300 for the part and $90 for the labor (1.5 hrs). I questioned him on the cost of the part, and he indicated he got all his parts from Fisher Auto Parts. After calling them, they indicated the part cost $210.50. Seems a little expensive, but in any case, less than $300.

      Gotta love getting screwed!

    No air from a/c vents
    I replaced the blower motor. It runs fine, but I am not getting any air from the vents. What could be causing that?

      Probably a directional door/actuator under the dash not operating properly. So it doesn't blow out the floor-- defrost or anywhere? I haven't looked at your hvac info. Some actuators are vacuum controlled some have electrical circuits, check vacuum or voltage, where applicable.

      If you used an aftermarket blower motor the fan may be spinning the wrong direction.Try switching the wires to motor.

      Also, the battery/alternator is messed up. The battery won't hold a charge so we think something is also draining the battery somewhere, but would the low voltage cause this?

      Not likely that there is anything to concern about except the cost of tires and a new undercover. Don't forget to order new retainers for the undercover unless they tell you that it is held on with metal bolts. many have plastic fasteners that break when you undo them.
