My headlights fail - Ever since my parking brake snapped I've been having trouble with my headlights. If I tilt my steering wheel to the lowest level the lights come on for a short period of time. When they go as I am driving, I then tilt the steering wheel to the highest level and they come back on for a bit. When they go out again that's it... I have to stop the truck and turn the engine off and on again to make them work or use the highbeams which work with no problem. Any thoughts on this

I have a 2001 Toyota Highlander that has 195,000 miles on it. We recently took it in for a wheel bearing repair, spark plugs change, oil change and some other minor work but ever since we got it back, we've been having problems with the car stalling out. Nothing shows up on the diagnostics. It comes at random times, sometimes at a stop light, it just dies or just yesterday, we made a turn and then the car stalls out and then the brakes won't work, the steering won't work and the car just coas

2005 2500HD odometer is not showing up nor any of the other options like oil life, etc. I have changed the buttons on steering wheel and checked the wiring harness. There is power getting to the buttons on the steering wheel because the lights on the button light up. Is there a fuse, bulb, or something I am missing. The top buttons that run the stereo are working fine. Buttons on bottom seem to work, just nothing showing up. I have held the reset button for 10 seconds and that did not help eit

Steering wheel control switches no longer light up at night. Is it as easy as popping off the switch ? I was told to be careful that i could set off the air-bag and that the steering wheel has to come off to replace the lights. The same problem exists with the overhead controls used for the garage door opener.


I had the same problem. The steering wheel controls are very easy to pop off with a small thin screwdriver. Once they are loose just unplug them. Order new ones from your local Chevy dealership. They weren't very expensive. If I remember correct ... 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora

Odometer Light Hi, I own a 2001 Chevy Cavalier 2.2, 4 cyl. only 50,000 miles. Recently, my odometer light (a bright orange) ceased to function. I show no burnt fuses. So I'm thinking the light is controlled by another source. I'd appreciate any advice on how to re activate the light. If I look closely enough (when the car is parked, and I place my head against the steering wheel, I can just barely make out the digits) Otherwise, the little indicator window is black. Thanks for your help! Sincere


I just replaced the bulb in mine, it's a real PITA. You have to take off the top dash pad, remove the instrument cluster, completely disassemble it (and I mean completely: right down to the circuit board, including removing the gauge needles). The bu ... 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier

4 wheel steering warning light has come on (1997 2.2 vtec) and rear steering is now fixed in straight ahead position. Is there anything simple that I should look at or will it need Honda computer diagnostics and all that? Supeficial inspectiom shows nothing hanging of, broken or disconnected. Regards Gordon


Personally, I would take it to a shop for diagnostics or at least a code reading. This is computer controlled, so it may not necessarily be a hard part issue in the rear steering. ... Honda Prelude

Help! Within the last two months I bought a 2002 Buick Regal LS with 39,500 miles and a 2004 Buick Regal GS with 59,500 miles. Both were one-owner cars and are in excellent condition. However, the gear indicator on the GS center console is missing. It has the figures (R,N,P, D etc) but no red pointer or light. (The indicator behind the steering wheel works fine.) The LS has both an indicator and a light on the center console to show the current gear engaged. The GS is currently in the garage

I have a '97 Honda Civic 5 speed manual. The cruise control recently just stopped working. The light ON the cruise button on the left side of the dash does not light up anymore. I have checked the fuse and it looked fine but replaced it anyway just to be safe. I have a feeling that it is the button itself that is broken because i accidentally used it to switch off the cruise because my model didn't come with a cancel button, only set/slower resume/faster button on the steering wheel.

Hey, i have a 2001 bmw 325ci. What happened is that i was driving to school this morning, stopped at red lights, took a left turn and all of sudden my steering wheel just got really really stiff, almost to the point where i had to use full force to turn it. At that point i immediately pulled over and opened up the hood. The power steering fluid seems full. I dont know what the problem might be, if anyone could help that would be great. THanks


I also 2001 bmw 325ci. Your description of events exactly matches mine, right down to the problem occurring immediately after a sudden turn. Turns out it was the steering pump. I'm not a mechanic but have fiddled around with stuff over the years. I u ... 2001 BMW 325
