You may have to change the switch because they may be like a thermal relay inside that once it gets hot it opens the circuit hopefully this will help

What can cause a 2008 Buick Lucerne's battery to drain so much?

If you can't see any obvious reason, like lights on, radio, etc. you have some short circuit in electric system. Get PCM (car's computer) scanned to get a diagnosis and pinpoint location of the problem.

Sometimes car shuts off while driving and then comes back on the next day

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

I own a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica and for about a year now the left side parking lights have not worked. The brake light will come on when the brakes are pressed, changed all of the bulbs multiple times to no...

I had the same issue. Disconnect the battery for 15-30min. This will allow the Integrated Power Module (IPM) or sometimes called the fuse panel, to reset. Many other web fixit sites reference this. Apparently, the parking light circut is controlled by a solid state breaker and not a fuse in the IPM,

I have a 2007 Ford Expedition XLT. I came home and park it. When I went to get back in it, however it wouldn't start. Its turning over but won't stay cranked.

Same thing happened to my '07 expedition EL Limited. I called CAA and towed in to the dealership. As per their diagnosis, the Heater Control Module malfunctioned/tripped. They reset it and asked me to leave the car overnight outside the dealership in the middle of winter so they can test it again the next day. Next day, car was ok. The tech said probably the Heater Control Module is the problem.

He showed me how to reset it in case it will happen again in the middle of nowhere.

To reset this, pry open (use your fingers) the lower cover of the center console below the a/c, heater, temperature buttons. Then lift up the cover of the whole center console and you will see wires connected to this two (2) connectors. Unplug the first one on the right (blue in my car) and re-plug it after about 10 seconds. Wait for about a minute then try to turn the ignition ON then START.

It happens twice again already since it came out from the dealership but I was able to reset it.

But the advise of their tech is to replace the Heater Control module and it will cost me about $500.

First my air stopped blowimg on the no 5 posistion. then the other day all posistions went bad later on that day the air blew ice cold and now sometimes i can feel the cold air but it doesn't blow.

Hi, the blower module that is located at the bottom of the heater box, next to the blower motor, above the panel below the glove box, has a tendancy to go bad, possibly overheat, and melt the larger of the two connectors. This can lead to one or all sppeds inop. the module will need to be replaced, and th connector inspected. If the connector is melted, or discolored, it needs to be replaced. A pigtail with wires, and connectors, as well as the resistor, should be available at a local GMC or Chevy dealer. Good luck...Coop
