    alot of cars are equipped with a fuel shut off just for accidents .. check in the trunk and see if there is a switch anywhere that might be this type of deal.. I have had them hit a real bad bump and shut off the emergency switch to the fuel pump .. look it over real good this might be the case just an idea .. Jerry

Fuel pump inertia switch is not in the boot so much these days but the vehicle handbook should provide the exact location - they are often to be found behind the front passenger footwell kick panel and sometimes under the bonnet bolted to the bulkhead.

Yes they do but I would rather think you have a bad battery cabe connection to the system, sometimes the battery cable corrudes and you can't see it try replacing the cable ends and the connector ends espically if they are by the battery.

SOURCE: LEFT TRAILER TURN SIGNAL DOES NOT WORK

I have seen once before that the fuse box was bad on a 2003 Dodge 3500. I had power in and nothing out. We had to replace the box. Not cheap! Hope it is simple like a loose connection though. I think I had to pull the inner fender on the drivers side to access the bottom of the fuse box. Pain in the ****, but...

SOURCE: How do I remove a wrecked front fender assy/quarter panel?

The front fenders are connected to the A pillar above the the top hinge, at the bottom of the rocker panel seam, three bolts pass through the hood hinge support in the middle of the fender, four bolts on the radiator support, three vertical bolts on the top radiator brace, and one bolt at the rear of the wheelhouse to the cab body. Yes, the wheelhouse is spot welded to the fender and must be removed with it. Remove all the bolts listed as well as the bolts retaining the splash shield. The splash shield is a plastic liner connected to both the wheelhouse and the fender. Remove the headlight/cornering lamp assembly. The best way I have found to do this is to loosen the bumper to framebrackets and let the bumper assembly sag to gain clearance. If the upper bumper cover is removed to gain the clearance needed you will more than likely need to get a new cover as the nylon clips have a tendency to break during removal. Once the fender/wheelhouse assembly has been removed use a spot weld cutter to separate the wheelhouse from the old fender. Check the new fender for clearance and fit on the vehicle. Make all the needed adjustments to get the fender to fit correctly. Remove the fender and attach the wheelhouse. This should be done by spot welding. It can also be done using bolts. If using bolts place some 3M double stick weather strip adhesive tape in the seam to prevent direct contact of the parts to prevent rattles and squeaks. Drill the new fender to match the holes made by the spot weld cutter in the wheelhouse. Use stainless bolts and lock nuts so that the assembly can be services if needed. I would also recommend using Wurth Rust Inhibitor on all the seams to prevent rust and once cured it is an excellent adhesive and will reduce noise coming from moving body panels. Good Luck. It is not as bad as it sounds. Take your time and it will be worth the effort.

SOURCE: 2003 dodge caravan won't start

My 2003 dodge caravan would not start after driving about 1/2 hour. I stopped for coffee and when got back in to start it started I switched gears and it stalled. I tried to start again switched gears then it started but only for 2 sec. No clicking, no cranking sound just would not start but battery functions were great. Spent 2 days with a mechanic who could not resolve so sent to Dodge. After a day of putting wires back and checking out the problem they said it was the computer. Said that it was bad and could be replaced at no charge due to malfunction. Yes, it worked fine afterwards no more problems. They also said that some of the computers are found to be defective like this one so I hope this helps you in the right choice to have the dealer check it out if you are unable to get a computer reading and there is no obvious short in the system. Free sounded very good but as you know there is no such thing as really free as they got me for other things $350 worth. ouch!

some of these models have a fuse box on that side under the hood. I'd start there first. After that, have an assistant try to start vehicle while voltmeter is attached to battery terminals. Did voltage drop to 10-11volts during cranking attempt? If so, suspect starter.

The front driver side door was "stuck" wouldn't easily move past a certain point. So I "forced" it. I believe the front inner fender well liner is now cracked. 1. why would this happen literally all of...


More than likely the door was rubbing the fender, usually from an accident where the fender has been pushed or rolled towards the door edge. If you don't care about the finish of the vehicle, then locate through your contacts, some one with paint & body experience and they will know how to temporarily align the panels from not rubbing; until your ready to repair it correctly. Fender liners crack when in accidents.

Front fender removal


Hiya... here's the details of fender removal/installation:
the left-side (same for right-side) fender has 6 bolts attached to the "sidebody" frame.
The bolt location:
3 are on the top fender-easy to find when hood is open,
1 is hidden at the rear of top inner fender-just open the left-front door wide to find it (early equinoxes had foam-like noise absorber material in it, just remove it from underneath fender after the wheelwell liner is removed),
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of front fender area at headlight/bumper area-you need to remove plastic wheelwell liner to gain access,
1 bolt is hidden at bottom of rear fender area where the black plastic rocker panel meets below the fender...
THIS area is probably the most difficult task to do since it requires you to remove a small bolt found on the front of rocker panel behind the front-left wheel then use a flat screwdriver or clip removal tool to pry open the black plastic **clip's 'dime-sized' head prior to pull out the clip's body (it has 8 clips underneath the chassis) then use your hands to grasp the rocker panel underneath, pull it down-toward you...this should do it....USE CARE during rocker panel and clip removal/installation so you don't break the clips!
It also has yellow plastic clips inside the rocker panel (used as a guide during installation into rocker sill holes-use caution not to break it)
**note: early equinoxes had rocker panel clips that you can actually pull it out from the hole, while later equinoxes has 'built-in' clips inside rocker panels that you don't see the clip heads below it due to engineering part design change**
Be sure to exercise care when handing this task!

Acura integra 1991


there has got to be a hot wire shorting out some where in that circuit, you will need to trace this circuit from the head lite back to the fuse box. try and remember if any work has been done on the car just prior to developing this problem. if so check in that general area to see if any wires were accidently pinched or cut. if you are unable to find the shorted wire then have your head lite switch checked out, as it may be shorting out inside. by any chance have you had a minor fender bender( accident ) on the front left side of your car? as this may have pinched a wire.
I hope this is helpfull

I have a 93 escort wagon , that i love... it was hit in an accident... i bought a liitle parts car an need to replace parts.... does anyone have auto body part on the manuel?


I have done this for years and am familiar with these cars. The first thing to do is cut in your parts, by that I mean paint the inside edges of your door, fender and hood before you install them. The hood is a no brainer. four bolts probably ten millimeter. The fender is not very hard either, remove headlight and side marker and front bumper. The door needs to be disconnected under the dash and the wires pulled out before removal. Install the door and adjust it till it fits and closes properly, then the fender by lining up the body line before tightning into place. Before putting in the bolts along the top install your hood and align it with the back of the cowl so that it is even gap all the way across then adjust fender gap and tighten down. This will work perfect if your inner structure has not been bent or knocked over. Be glad to help further if you need it
