      I do not think this can be valued properly this way. Ballpark price yes. A price with certainty...no

      I would say 1100 complete.

      Near impossible to give an accurate repair estimate for any body work via the internet - even with photos. There is too much unknown / potential hidden damage.

      Your next step should be to obtain several repair estimates from trusted local auto body repair shops - to inspect the vehicle firsthand - and provide a written and accurate list of the items to be fixed.

    My headlights are weak and my interior lights won't shut off. How much do you think this would cost to be fixed right?
    My head lights are so weak, they look like they should be the daytime running lights for a much older car. I just bought the car as is and the lights worked as I left the lot. this is my third time driving the car and now the check light is on and the interior ...

      The weak lights indicate several possible issues; faulty alternator, faulty / worn serpentine drive belt, faulty / worn serpentine drive belt tensioner, corroded / loose / faulty battery terminal or cable connections.

      The first step would be to have a free electrical system test performed at any local auto parts store; to check for the condition of the battery, alternator, wiring and connections. Then, please post a reply with the results for further assistance.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the serpentine drive belt from around $6.40, the alternator from around $118.80, the belt tensioner from around $22.70 for your vehicle

      Since you just purchased the vehicle - is there any type of used car warranty in effect?

      You need to find a mechanic to solve this. No way to know the cause based on these details. The fix will not be "rewiring the light" I assure you. I feel that you do not do any of your own repairs otherwise I would give you diagnostic advice but unless you can do what I say it will not help in any way. You will need a code reader at the very least.

    The stereo/Cd player in my car now showes low oil,low windsheld washer and so on if I install or have a after market Stereo/ CD player installed I understand I will lose that display but will that effect the computer in the car and can I add more speakers.

      Yes, more than likely the aftermarket stereo will not show the same display as the factory installed unit.

    Hum, driver-side door post at airbag
    I have a hum that gets pretty loud on the driver-side door post just below the side airbag where it seems a vent is. I can press on the area and it will go away for a short while. I'm wondering if anyone may have experienced this type of situation or what it may be?

    Gas needle fluctuates up and down

      There should be no fuel leakage. Have a shop diagnose where fuel is coming from. This is a fire risk. The wiring is different on some aftermarket pumps and there the pigtail must be replaced and wire correctly. Was gauge fluctuating before fuel pump replacement? if not issues with instrument cluster is a known problem and require repair or replacement. Dorman parts make new replacement units.

      Confirm that the bulb is the correct part #. There are at least two different bulbs that look identical except for the wattage.

      Typically I can tell you that there are no service parts for power mirrors other than maybe the glass. if the mirror shows some movement it proves that it is receiving the power and that would mean the mirror is junk unless smacking it around carefully gets it out of this stuck mode.

    All happened at once: cruise control quit, brake warning light came on, heater quit. Help!
    Chevrolet 1500 Silverado with 160,000 miles. Returning home on a trip, the cruise control just refused to engage. A couple of days earlier, the emergency brake light and the ABS light came on, and as I drove home on the same trip, the heater fan would not come ...

      So they did not all happen at once like you stated they did? The cruise control quit because there is a fault with the anti-lock brakes. This is normal to disable the cruise under these circumstances until the fault is identified and fixed. The heater fan is a separate issue even though it was during the same trip. The blower resistor and / or the electrical plug going to the resistor is junk. Or the blower motor itself is junk. Look for a burnt connector at the motor or the resistor. The connector can be purchased separately if needed. Only replace it if the terminals appear that they started to scorch brown or melted plastic. Also, if this is what you find, and you previously replaced the resistor without the resistor connector being nburned previously, then also replace the blower motor. The blower motor can degrade and start drawing too much amperage and cause an overheated circuit causing stuff to burn.

    Anybody have a problem with a turn relay staying active (clicking) when turn indicators or 4 ways not on?
    The turn signals and 4 ways actually function perfectly. Come on and go off with the switches. The relay however randomly "activates" itself while driving. The lights don't come on or even flicker while this is happening. The only thing electrical that ...

      First step - swap / exchange the relay for one like it from the relay panel. See if the problem moves once the relay is moved.

      If the problem goes away / moves then simply replace the relay with a new one. The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the turn signal flasher from around $7.88 for your vehicle.
