Tip & How-To about Cars & Trucks

Applies to ALL electronically controlled devices.

When purchasing any new electronically controlled appliance, car, fridge, dishwasher, television or whatever in order to keep from going mad and pulling all your hair out when the unit stops working and displays a dummy code like T2133 and refuses to work, you MUST INSIST the dealer you are buying the unit from supply the service manual and ALL fault codes and their definitions for whatever make and model you are buying. Insist they provide the manuals as part of the conditions of the sale. If they will not provide them, don't buy the item from that manufacturer, try another one. If more and more people start demanding the service and code manuals manufacturers will have to start providing them Be aware appliance manufacturers still make the older versions of washers, dryers and fridges with non-electronic controls (i.e. ones you can easily fix yourself) but you have to order them, very few dealers still carry them. Check with your dealer to see what you can order.

Changed bulbs to Led bulbs only interior and side indicators now dash lights all light up at the same time and turn key all lights flash and clicks like mad

You can't use LED on the indicators. They have electronic power regulators that interfere with the flasher mechanism. Only use in places where light is constant like side lights or brake lights, side monitors.

The other consideration is that on newer cars, lighting is controlled by the Body Control Module computer, so the lights are controlled electronically.

For the code,
1. Look on the deck lid arms for a small tag with the permanent code.

3. Look in the glove box owner manual package for a credit card size plastic card with the code number.
4. Pay dealer 1/2 hour labor charge to retrieve the code with their diagnostic tool. Confirm price ahead of time.
5. Look on keyless entry module for the tag with the code.

For 1994 town car, module is behind glvoe box. Not sure for 1992, sinnce 94 was a new model design.

i put an aftermarket cd playeer in my 01 chevy blazer. On the steering wheel there are volume controls etc. The wires do not hook into the new stereo. how do i hook these wire into the new stereo when it does not have a place to install them

in order to use the streering wheel controls you have to have a stereo with a remote control. you can the purchase a part that will connect to your steering wheel controls and send a signal to your stereo. i do not know what the name of the part it is, but if you check with a local electronics store I'm sure they can help you.
