Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Toyota corona 1. The TRC OFF light on the dash board stays on even when I toggle the button. 2. The steering wheel sometimes feels hard on turning. I recently changed the rack and the steering fluid pump but it still feels hard. 3. The RPM pointer sometimes works fine, other times it doesn't work and on some occasions juddders erratically. 4. When I park the car for about 2 weeks (say am off on a trip), when I return and insert the key to the switch position, I hear a long beep that lasts for about 2 minutes- similar to the one you hear when the lights are on as you open the door

SOURCE: Blower Motor problem

Hi,

Sorry but most that I can give would be generic as Pontiac Grand Prix are not that common in my country. I am assuming you are referring to the fan/blowers of the A/C unit.

Based on your description and from what little I know of the circuitry/wiring of current blowers:
1. the clicking sound would be a relay engaging and therefore the speed selector switch could be assumed to be operational since it can trigger the relay;
2. the day time running lights and auto night lights turning off when engaging the fan switch indicates possibly a common supply problem. This could be a wire or terminal in the fuse block. This common B+12 supply logically would be split into several including the fan blower fuse and the lights fuse. It is also possible that said terminal is corroded or has scorched marks preventing full flow of current or be disconnected intermittently;
3. since you have changed the resistor (presumably known and tested to be good) then the problem lies elsewhere possibly back to #2 above;
4. I would discount any ignition problem as it would be more engine related and has nothing to do with the fan/blower except that it share a common IGN B+12 which again points back to possibly #2; and
5. Though am not sure, but I think your car has also a blower motor control processor which also could be at fault.

I believe your best option would be to use a DVM to check for the presence of B+ supply to the fan motor while going through the switch settings (1 to 5). Thereafter trace back until you reach the resistor and its input of +12, go further back and trace it to the fuse holder and eventually to the common supply. You would have three (3) B+12, a) always ON; b) IGN ON; and blower switch ON.

Would appreciate a post back for any developments or results of your voltage checks.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Again, pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.

I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps

SOURCE: ignition switch to a 2001

no there is no lock position for the alero. if the key wont turn the key and or ignition cylinder may be worn out. try jiggling the key as you try to turn it. you may need to replace the ignition switch to repair this. when you do it will need to be programed to the vehicle. hope this helps

Rear park lights stay on


Way under your dash beneath the steering wheel you can probably feel two small buttons on either side of the steering column. One is for your cruise control I believe, and the other controls your rear brake lights. You probably noticed some broken black pieces of plastic on your floorboard. That's the broken plug that kept the button pushed in to turn your lights off. Replace the plug and the lights will go off.
