There is a plug behind the trunk lining on the drivers side, I'm hoping it could be for a premium sterio that my car did not come with. There are two 6x9 holes in the rear deck so it looks like this is the case. If so, could you help me identify which wires are what so I can install an after market amp and speakers? Thank you!


The wiring for the amp is probably not there and will have to be run from the front. The speaker wiring is generally marked with a white stripe on the positive for each rear speaker and no stripe for the negative. Thank you, Dana ... 2002 Lincoln LS

High beams work when light stalk is pulled back. But when pushed forward hight beams do not go on. When the stalk on the steering column is pulled back the high beams work fine. When the stalk is pushed forward the switch sounds and feels like it is working fine, but the hight beams do not go on. I am not sure if it is a switch assembly issue, or a wire problem. Previous owner cut the white with black tracer wire from this assembly and connnected another wire to the engine side of the white/blac

2004 Jeep Liberty had the Rack and Pinion and power steering reservoir and lines replaced but now steering still makes a squeaking sound when steering wheel is near center. Sounds like two pieces of rubber rubbing together loudly. If you rotate steering all the way to left or right while not moving it tends to disappear when fully rotated and returns near dead center. Had mechanic look over but not sure if it's shocks, ball joint, or lube, etc. Any ideas?


When the steering wheel is dead center the power steering isn't operational so the oil servo pump is supposed to be non operational - the pressure it constantly generates should escape thru the safety valve. So either the valve is malfunctioning - it ... 2004 Jeep Liberty
