After driving over a speedbump or pothole, I will sometimes hear a "squeak, sqeak, squeak " coming from the back wheels, or it may be just the back passenger side wheel. It's been doing that on occasion...


Could be your shock absorbers , push down on both sides of the back wing , so push down and let go to see if both sides go up and down the same amount of times . Is one side more bouncy than the other Break light switch on the break peddle might need adjusting so check that , or use a multimeter on your back light good luck colin

THE DEFROST BLOWS OUT HOT AIR, BUT THE FRONT SIDE WINDOWS AND THE TOP OF THE WINDSHIELD FOGS OVER. HARDLY ANY AIR COMMING OUT OF THE VENTS ON THE SIDE OF THE DASH THAT BLOWS ON THE FRONT DRIVERS SIDE AND...


You didn't specify what type of vehicle.
If you have very poor air flow out the vents, later model vehicles have a hepa filter or cabin filter in line form the blower motor to the vents. It can be plugged quite easily and drastically cuts down the air blown into the vehicle. Check to see if they are plugged. Secondly, Check your coolant level in the rad and reservoir. If the windows fog up when cold and air flow is good it could indicate a leaking heater core. Check the passenger side floor for signs of coolant again I don't know the type of vehicle, some heater cores are located at the firewall under the hood.

2004 dodge intrepid driveing down road and it died and wont start or get fire to plugs is it a sensor


More then likely yes, I would check your Crankshaft sensor, that what send the signal to the coil packs then to the spark plugs, the sensor is held on with a 10mm bolt on the side of the engine block on the passenger side.

I was driving down the road and my heater quit working and filled the truck up with smoke and i burned up the heater blower moter i need 2 know how 2 take the heater blower motor off and replace it ?


If memory serves me the blower motor is just above the passenger's feet under the dash. It is held in with 9/32" (7mm) screws if I remember correctly. There may be a plastic cover that needs to be removed first.

My 2002 camry inside, dash lights went out, as well as my passenger side power window. What fuses and where?


Each window doesn't have it's own fuse, if all other windows work beside the passenger window it's ok to assume the fuse is good. It could be the window switches, wiring or the window motor or regulator. As for the dash lights, first make sure the dimmer isn't turned down all the way. It's a simple thing, but i've had a few customers come in with the same complaint and it turned out they inadvertently just turned the dimmer all the way down.

DRL WORK BUT NO TAIL LIGHTS OR DASH LIGHTS AT NIGHT


I FIXED THIS ISSUE IN MY CASE. NOT TOO HARD IN A FEW MINUTES.

I didn't know there was another fuse box in the crevice of opening the passenger door. It helped when I found that out in the owners manual.

Narrowed things down by checking to see if I had rear parking/running lights since I heard this was also the dash light fuse.
*I did not have these rear parking lights coming on, just when I would apply the brake*

Sure enought that 15A fuse was blown, its in the passenger side box. I heard in my searching for a fix that this fuse also controlled dash lights. Sure enough it does! ( I have 2000 base model 3.4 impala)

SO, Things worked after that, UNTIL I MOVED MY ASH TRAY IN AND OUT A FEW TIMES!!

The dash lights flickered a bit when I moved the ashtray in and out and after a few times I heard a POP! and no more dash lights just like before. Fuse was blown, and I didn't have another 15A that wasnt plugged in making something work. My ashtray light had not been working for the last while by the way.

SO, I pulled out a 15A fuse from the the slot that said CIG on the passenger side, I never use the 12v ports anyway. (used it for the rear parking light/dash light slot to get the dash lights working again.)

*But, the dash lights looked a little lazy, meaning I could see a bit of a powerup happening over 1-2 seconds to full illumination*

SO. then I went in the book and found out what fuses that had anything to do with the ash/aux outlet sliding tray which was good at popping the fuse that lit up the dash. I wanted to disable the ashtray light and 12V ports in the tray to be safe.

I already pulled the appropriate 15A fuse on the passenger side which I used to bring the dash and rear parking lights back. But also, I decided to remove the 10A fuse on the drivers side that was for the accessory outlet. ( it might have been labelled CIG?)

Dash lights come on fast and solid now, sliding the tray does not have an influence or cause flickering.

My car is old enough that I don't care about having to rearrange fuses to make things work, If end up needing the 12v ports I can put the 10A fuse back in since the tray needs to be held open anyway.

I hope this helps.
