    it controls the temp for the heat-a/c so you will probably always get either heat or cold in the rear no matter what the temp is set at

Replace dash cupholder


Hi. This is an easy do. With the cup holder fully extended, slide a flat puddy knibe into the top **** between the cupholder and the the dash. slide it side to side to disengage the stops that are part of the cupholder while pulling out lightly on the cupholder. It should come out without much effort. To reinstall, just push the replacement cupholder into the slot. Good luck!

How do I fix lighter fuse in 2005 Lexus ES330?


under the controls for the side view mirrors, behind the coin holder cup. open the coin cup & pull up on the cup until it pops out of place. on the back of the coin cup is the fuse diagram. its the "cig" on the 3rd column, top row, "15a". there are some spare fuses under the hood. open the hood & its on the right of the engine in the black box that's about 10in by 4in big. open the cover & look at the fuse diagram & look for the spares on the top right.

Left side dash cupholder under the left side ac vent no longer springs out


The cup-holder jamming is a common problem for the RX.. this is usually caused by some distortion of the upper instrument panel. What is happening the the cup holder is being pinch and the spring force cannot over come the frictional forces. If you have it out, it could be as simple as adding some grease on the slide contact points.

You can try to pop off the register and cup holder assembly add reinstall it. It could change the positioning. The assembly is snapped in and held in place by locking tabs.

How to repair cup holder and spring under radio? picture???


94-99 luminas i think are all the same as far as the dash and the console etc.... At any rate i ran into this problem so i can tell you what to do.
#1 Remove the ash tray by pulling it out n pressing the silver tab down while pulling it completely out of the dash
#2 Remove the four 9/32 nuts around the perimeter of the black metal housing that held the ashtray in place
#3 there are 2 more hidden 9/32 nuts right under the trim piece under the stereo. If you aren't careful you will bust ur dash apart and have to replace this all. The easy way i did it was i pulled out the broken cupholder and sawed it in half then pushed it back in so i gained easier access to the bolt locations as they are quite hidden, next pull up the bottom right corner of the radio trim piece on the dash and keep it propped with a flathead screwdriver and remove the final 2 nuts. Twist loose the cigarette lighter hookup, bend back the 2 tabs holding the old cupholder in the track to remove it and ur ready to re-install ur new cupholder

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon XL and the rear passenger tail light and brake light do not work. I checked all fuses and replaced the bulb and it still doesn't work. Theres also a loud and annoying clicking sound...


check VEH STOP fuse in the instrument panel fuse box. If good, check for battery voltage in the bulb connector on the light blue wire with lights on. If no voltage, check for voltage in the rear junction box. Pull connector 4 and check for voltage on the terminal that connects to the light blue wire. If not voltage, you'll have to check the harness between the rear junction block and the underhood fuse block

Does 2003 Ford Explorer have 3rd row seat


The third seat was an option on this model. Your model may or may not have the third seat. You should be able to tell by looking at the floor in the back. Ford may have included the rear cup holders on all models for ease of production.

Cup holder is stuck down


stick your hands in the cup holder, press against the sidewalls of the cup holder and pull up, there are only 2 metal clips that hold the cup holder assembly in place, it will pop right out, once out check for things obstructing the cup holder lid or broken tracks, a new one is 90-115 bucks or about 20 at a junkyard, just went through this myself
