the lights controls of rear wiper switch is flasher


My 97 Voyager has done the same thing. It was control panel programing, the following instructions is how to program your control panel: 1) SET BLOWER ON HIGH 2) SET MODE TO PANEL 3) SET TEMP TO COLD 4) PRESS WASH AND REAR WIPER TOGATHER AND HOLD FOR 5 SEC. IT WILL GO THROUGH A SERIES OF FLASHING, WHEN DONE THE REAR WIPER SHOULD BE THE ONLY ONE FLASHING PRESS REAR WIPER TO EXIT. DO THIS WITH VAN RUNNING. This worked for my 1997 Voyager. I hope it works for yours.

2000 jeep grand cherokee gauge cluster is working off & on where do i start with troubleshooting?


If it's just the Temp/ Fuel gauge,,, my money is on the instrument voltage regulator. (it governs the voltage to these gauges regardless of the incline (up/down for the fuel gauge) or the battery voltage 12.5 - 13.8 . Other than these it may be an earth connection problen (long shot) because the instrument panel relies on many many signal imputs. !

Fading paint color on different areas of my 2000 VW Beetle Turbo


hi from uk the fade on paintwork you describe is not uncommon on this colour and especially on red which tends to go pink ? may i suggest you try this remedy which was shown to me some years ago by a paint sprayer expert ? choose a small panel that has faded then use some metal liquid polish ie brasso or similar then pour a little on a clean cloth and rub on paintwork use straight motion not circular / left to right or up /dawn rub with light pressure over the panel then use warm soap water and sponge to wash the polish off then dry paintwork with clean cloth you will find the colour and shine has come up ? also feel the difference ? if you are satisfied ?? then with LOTS of patience? continue with proceedure panel by panel what you are doing is removing all old wax from paint and it is this that has dicoloured due to sun/heat then when car is finished? use a wash/wax detergent for final wash/rinse and leather off i recommend you do not try rushing this job or get fed up ? 1/2 way thro if you want car to look good please come back with update on how it goes ?

i have a passat estate and it is silver the paint is blotchy all over as if finger marks are left cannot get rid told to heat them up and they do go but then come back in a couple of days has anybody else had same problem and how did you fix it many thanks.


hi from uk i am going to pass on to you an old remedy that a body spray painter passed on to me when i had a silver cortina 1600E in my youngr days and it does work ! if you obtain a tin of liquid metal polish ie brasso or carr day and martins metal polish pour a generouse amount onto a soft cloth then do a panel at a time ie front wing ? rub polish in straight lines only over panel apply firm pressure and be careful not to miss anywhere ? doing this removes all old wax polish and enhances the silver shine then wash panel with warm soap water of metal polish then leather or dry off ? you will feel the difference in texture of paint surface this requires lots of patience to do it right over all the cars body work afterwards use only wash wax liquid and rinse each wash not wax polish this remedy works magic on red painted cars that have turned pink matt ? using this method removes all old wax polish which has created pink due to sunlight as you may have noticed on other cars i hope you try this remedy at least on one panel? then look forward to your update/opinion on this ? best wishes from n/west uk
