I had to replace a 80 amp fuse. There may be more than one of these fuses, but in my case the power steering electrical assist quit working. Locate the fuse panel under the hood. My 80 amp fuse was between 2 bolts. One red wire from battery on one bolt,
the fuse between bolts. Remove the 2 nuts holding the fuse. Install the new fuse between the 2 bolts and replace nuts.
FYI - If you need to jump start this SUV some day, warn the person connecting the cables to NOT connect across these bolts.
It will of course blow this 80 amp fuse immediately.

SOURCE: where and how to change cabin filter chevy equinox

Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.

SOURCE: 2008 Equinox Horn Replacement

Hiya
There's 2 horns-one is a low-note pitch on the driver's side and a high-note pitch on the passenger's side.
Both are bolted vertically onto the 'front-under' frame below-behind the headlight area....located just above the steel front interior bumper frame area.
Unplug the black wire from the horn's plug socket.
While you shop for new horns at the store, use the original horn to determine the new horn's plug socket can fit the black wire plug that you took it off from the original horns.
Hope it helps.

2006 Chevy Equinox. Vehicle has lost power steering communication is what a service shop is telling me. Any ideas on this?


I have a 2008 model Equinox and my SUV has electrically assisted power steering. I had to have my truck jump started once and the garage guy hooked up the cables across the fuse that controls this steering unit. In my case this took out the 80 AMP
fuse in the motor compartment area. I had only manual hard
steering until I replaced this fuse. If you still have the SUV
with this problem, it could be just a fuse. Good luck.

Tip

JUMP-STARTING CABLE CONNECTIONS


This video is on a 2008 Chevy Equinox SUV, but may be very similar to other Chevy vehicles. On many occasions, I have heard about a problem that can
be experienced while connecting jumper cables to jump-start a vehicle. If the
negative cable is connected to a bolt on the fuse panel near the positive bolt
that IS located on the fuse panel will cause the 80 amp fuse to blow. The neg
jumper cable should ONLY be attached to a good ground somewhere on the
chassis itself. Ref. to the video.

Power outlets not working on 2008 Chevy Equinox


Replace the Aux Pwr fuse. On the 2008 Equinox, this fuse is in the fuse block under the hood. It is fuse number 3, 20A (yellow), located on the left side as you're looking it, in the slot immediately forward of the fuse puller tool. Way too late for Kevin256, but I just did this on my daughter's '08 Equinox and it fixed the problem.
