Trans range switch. is this covered under the 100,000 mile warenty?


Most dealers will only cover this under 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty. You might get a courtesy replacement if you are just over that, but don't count on it. I checked when mine went bad, the dealer quoted me "about $300 to get it fixed". After extensive research, I find that this is a very common problem with Suzuki's. Cheaper and easy fix is to go to oemsuzukiparts.com, in the mechanical section type in transmission range selector or neutral safety switch (not sure which one I used), and it will come up---$34 part held in place with two bolts!!!! I ended up unhooking the upper radiator hose from the radiator to give me more room, but it was so worth it. It only took me less than half an hour to replace. Just make sure you line up the teeth on the internal gears of the switch, and the tranny is in park. No problems, and more than $200 kept in my pocket

I have a 97 Honda civic Ex coupe and my power driver window, and back right window(when sitting in the driver seat) stopped working. How could i fix that?


If your not over miles then it should be covered under warranty, take it to the dealer for inspection. they have standard 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty... 3 years 50,000 miles on power train...

My autoride suspension is not working


A ton of things could be wrong with your autoride system. If you have more than about 70k miles and haven't replaced the rear shocks ($500+ EACH!!! at the dealer), then they are probably leaking out. If they leak out, then the air compressor will always run. Eventually the air compressor/ride level sensor module (located on the driver side rear wheel on the inboard side of the frame, $300+ at the dealer) burns out because it's not designed to run at 100% duty cycles. After the air compressor burns out, the Electronic Stability Control module (in an XL, located inside the passenger side rear wheelwell trim, next to the third row seat, $300+ at the dealer) will probably short out. If your autoride isn't working and you don't get a "Service Stability" message, your ESC module is probably going bad.

It is possible to convert to regular shocks, but to keep the Stability Control (still has to control your brakes and front variable dampening shocks during "evasive" maneuvers), you have to insert some 1/4 watt resistors in to the ride height sensor connectors (can't remember what values, but I'm sure you can Google that) so that the Stability system doesn't throw a code. Not that it matters, but the message can get annoying if it's always there to nag...

My dealer quoted over $2500 to replace the entire system. I figure I can find the control modules from my local junkyard for $300, and the shocks from ebay for $350 for the pair. Be sure to match all of the GM part numbers, and keep an eye out for an upgraded Air Compressor module - GM released an update that is heavier duty and more water-resistant than the first design. I don't remember the part number, but my dealer included the upgrade with my quote.

Oh, and the only "easy" way to test the modules is with a Tech 2 tool. Otherwise it's lots of testing with a 12-volt source and a couple of multimeters and oscilliscopes...

Good luck!
