There is got to be a fuse controlling the power so you will either have to look at another sunfire or find the fusebox, It could be on the fender or someplace like that.

If this is a manual transmission, their is a reverse sensor switch on the tansmission. It's located behind the driver side weel. Old one just screws out (I think) and the new one just goes in, and the wire gets switched. It's not that different then the door jam switches.

I cannot find the power door lock fuse on my 1997 Eurovan/Rialta RV.

I do electrical work. when it comes to car/vehicles. I pull all the fuses and look at them. This does 2 things. First you know the fuse is good. Second it gets rid of corrosion problems. Too many times I used a test light for fuses to find fuses were good. Too many times I had to pull a fuse to get power the the back side of it. I threw my test lights away.

There was a wire running from the alternator to the stereo fuse in the driver side fuse box and now the wire became disconnected so my truck wont start where do I reattach the wire

I would be looking at replacing the fuse panel. Or finding out why power had to be back fed threw the radio. The radio fuse is a key on power source.

My headlights pop up but don't turn on.have changed switch and control module. Any ideas?

Assuming you checked the fuses. I would go after the turn signal(TS) switch. Both the high and low beams run threw it. Actually, all the exterior lights run threw it except the high mount brake light. You need a wiring schematic. First I would check for power going to it. No power means the wire is broke between the fuse and TS switch. If power is going to the TS switch, then replace the switch. A quick check for TS switch is if you have high beams, but no low beams. Or vise versa. Neither one , you have to check for power to it first.

Headlights plus reversing lights not working on motorhome.

Best thing to do is get a 12 volt test light.. check all the wires on the vehicle to make sure all power is coming threw to the back For signals the test light will flash like a signal.. Break wire will work like brake light on tester same with park lights, if you have power to all plugs on vehicle test the front wires first if there is power move back a ways and test again. till you get to the rear if there is a bad spot in a wire the light will not illuminate. thats your bad spot, The next thing is the plug in it self check it for corrosion pulled out connectors corroded wires. plugs go bad..If your not familar how to do it its easy, and ive included a video to show you.. Check your bulds hold them up to light and see if the elements are being burned if so signs of a short. if elements are good then no power is getting to them

First understand how the fuel injector circuit works that causes them to spray fuel out, then you could probably find the problem. It's really simple, the key thing is that the hot wire to the injector (there are only two, a power wire and a ground wire) is always hot anytime the ignition key is in on, or run, or start. It is a fused circuit that is powered on when the key is on. The fuse is either in the distribution box under the hood or in the instrument panel fuse block.

The ground wire from the injector goes into the computer where it can be internally grounded inside the pcm for a split second. This is what causes the "pulse" of the injector, a needle is raised electromagnetically, and fuel under pressure is sprayed out. The computer can vary the pulse width, by duration of ground time, and really fine tune the gas metering.

Check for power at the injector connector with key on. If nothing, check the injectors fuse, and trace it back to the ignition switch. If there is power on the hot wire, one way to further test the circuit is to go buy a cheap "noid light," a tester at any parts store-different sizes, but easy to find a standard for gm vehicles. A noid light checks power and ground wires at the same time. Now that you understand "pulse", a noid will blink as if it were being pulsed-well it is, just that. Hook it up to an injector connector, and the engine has to be cranking over-that is when the computer is grounding the circuit repeatedly-when the engine is running and when it is cranking by the starter. If the noid light blinks, the circuit is working correctly. If the light doesn't turn on at all, first verify that the power wire has power with key on. If it does, problem may be in the ground side of the circuit, or in the pcm itself.

My husband took a test light and checked to make sure there was power going to the push button. there was power so he climbed threw to the back and popped it from the inside. we found out that the wire in the back was being kinked by the tailgate. so it was shorting out. He just ran a new one and now it works great but still my key dont work lol but atleast the button does. give that a shot i hope it works foru too
