Is driver airbag still functional when passenger airbag light is on in a 2010 Chevy malibu?


Hello Collette,

(Owner Manual Page 2-68)
The passenger sensing system turns off the right front
passenger frontal airbag and seat-mounted side
impact airbag under certain conditions. The driver
airbags and the roof-rail airbags are not affected by the
passenger sensing system.
The passenger sensing system works with sensors that
are part of the right front passenger seat. The sensors
are designed to detect the presence of a properly-seated
occupant and determine if the right front passenger
frontal airbag and seat-mounted side impact airbag
should be enabled (may inflate) or not.

I'm not sure if a purse or other light weight objects would activate the passenger airbag but if your display is showing random passenger activation it would be best to have a qualified dealer check into it...better safe than sorry.

No tail-lights on right side of 2006 buick lucerne


The bulbs are most likely burnt out. Right Front will be difficult to replace. Rear bulb is easy. You need to open trunk and find 4 nuts that hold the light in and remove them and the taillight will come out rearward. Locate the bad bulb your owners manual will tell you the number. It also will be on the bulb. The front I replaced when one of my headlights went out and I had to take apart the front of the car and I replaced ALL the bulbs and put it back together.

2004 Audi A4 passenger side headlight bulb gone. Is it possible to replace myself as the manual says go to dealer. If so how? Many thanks Mike


You need to take the headlight unit out if its on the left hand side (due to power steering reservoir, if on the right hand side you can just about get to the cover to remove it...
If you need to remove the head lights .. it simple... 4 torque screws on the top.. undo and slide towards youself.... (place on something soft and remove the plastic cover and change bulb.. reinstall and tighten )

Headlight Issue


No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!

How to change oil in 04 toyota matrix


Go to Walmart buy four quarts of oil it will say in the owners manuel what to get, a oil filter the store will have a book to look up the car know the engine size and model,a filter wrench, a drain pan and a jack to carefully jack up the front area of the passenger side of the car . I use a old rag and double fold it so the jack dosent mess up the jack point of the car. It will tell you also in the owners manuel where to jack it. PLEASE do not use the factory jack to go under the car buy one. OR go to the dealer and ask for a oil change coupon or go to Goodyear .

Need to remove headlight assembly on a 2004 Volkswagon Touareg. I can't locate the removel clip. (last step)


Once you turn the octagon screw to release the light and push it forward or out of the front of the vehicle, take a light and look to the left side if your working on the driver side or the right side if your working on the passenger side and you will see a metal tab release. Take a long flat head screw driver and press down toward the ground gently. The headlight will be released and the whole assembly comes out as it has a plug/electrical connection on the back of the assembly. I just replaced my headlights, I have a 2004 Touareg with 44,000 miles and have already gone through 2 sets of headlights. The VW dealer will want $300.00 to replace 1 side! They have lost their minds. How long have you had yours and what engine do you have? Just curious if you have had any problems? My Touareg has just needed tires, brakes, headlights. I have done the brakes as well. They want around $900.00 + for front plus about 8 for the rear. If you need anything just hollar and if you have any questions just let me know if I canhelp.
