    Did you undo the battery when you undid the airbags and the sensors up front?

I think you have a false code stored due to your work. clear the code and you should be ok.
If the air bag indicator does not illuminate or the indicator stays on or flashes at any time, a fault has been detected by the air bag diagnostic monitor.
Diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) may not be displayed for approximately 30 seconds after the ignition switch is placed in the RUN position. This is the amount of time the air bag diagnostic monitor requires to perform all tests and verify system faults.
Each DTC (a series of flashes and pauses of the air bag indicator):

  • Represents a two-digit number.
  • Is always displayed at least twice.
If the diagnostic monitor detects a fault in the air bag system, a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) will be written to the diagnostic monitor's Non-Volatile RAM (NVRAM). This DTC will then cause the lamp to flash a lamp fault code (LFC) on the air bag warning lamp and can be retrieved with the New Generation STAR (NGS) tester. After servicing the DTC may then be cleared from the NVRAM.
If a system fault is present and the air bag indicator is malfunctioning, an audible tone will be heard. The tone is a series of five sets of five beeps. If the tone is heard, the air bag system needs attention.
If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor will attempt to remove deployment power by turning on a solid state switch to blow the 10A battery fuse.

If the 10A battery fuse has successfully been blown by the air bag diagnostic monitor, the air bag diagnostic monitor will not attempt to blow it again until the proper fault has been repaired and cleared (refer to Diagnostic Instructions). The air bag diagnostic monitor will store both the unwanted deployment diagnostic trouble code and the loss of deployment power diagnostic trouble code. The loss of deployment power diagnostic trouble code is the highest priority.
If a fault exists that makes unwanted air bag deployment possible, the air bag diagnostic monitor has an internal fuse that that will blow (open) automatically. This removes all power to the air bag deployment circuit.
DTCs are prioritized numerically. If two or more faults occur at the same time, the fault having the highest priority will be displayed first. After that fault has been corrected, the next highest priority fault will be displayed.
The air bag diagnostic monitor includes an internal backup power supply. This feature provides sufficient backup power to deploy the air bag in the event the battery (10655) or battery cables are damaged in a collision before safing and air bag sensors close. The backup power supply will deplete its stored energy approximately one minute after the positive battery cable is disconnected.
---------------------------------------------------------------
Once a DTC is logged into the air bag diagnostic monitor memory, it will stay in memory until 80 key cycles have been recorded or until the NGS is used to erase the DTCs. Once 256 key cycles have been recorded since the concern was last detected, the DTC will automatically be removed from memory.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Active Command Modes
This command allows the technician to verify operation of the air bag system, indicator and tone. When the air bag output command is executed, the indicator and the tone are simultaneously activated for approximately four seconds. Both devices are automatically deactivated.

Are you taking about the rubber mount bushings? You can get replacements at your local Dodge dealer, or you could opt for a 2" body lift which comes with new mounts.

SOURCE: bigger tires...

Taller tire have more centrifugal force because they have more mass (weight). A body in motion tends to stay in motion. They also have a larger outer diameter therefore through all the weight to the out side of the tire. requiring more energy to accelerate and more energy to slow down than a smaller tire at the same speeds. This is why I would recommend up graded in your brakes and also lowering your gear ratio( numerically higher) if you are going to larger tires. A lower gear ratio will act as a torque multiplier which will get you moving faster up to speed and also adjust your speedometer to be more accurate.
When you go to larger tires your speedometer will be inaccurate because taller tire have large outer diameter. A taller outer diameter tire will travel farther per revolution than a smaller tire. This cause your engine speed to be lower with taller tires because your vehicles tires are moving slower do to it larger outer diameter.
There your vehicle can be re calibrated through the computer. 4wheel parts offers parts call true speed sensors which also recalibrate your speedometer accurately that is the way i would go. Also maybe up grade to larger master cylinder off a 1 ton Chevy and go with some drill and slotted rotors. You most likely will have better braking with these upgrades than you would stock. keep it safe!

Good luck and have fun.

SOURCE: I want a body lift for my truck

Do you have 4WD? Usually they dont have very many lift kits for 2WD. All they can give you really is longer leaf springs or blocks in the rear, and spring spacers or taller springs for the front.
As for 4WD, they have the same fittings for the rear, but the front theres a different set up.

Remove two screws per side under hood near front of fender. Put milk crate under front bumper. Remove belly pan first. Slide bumper forward onto milk crate, disconnect headlight washer line at quick disconnect if so equipped. Disconnect fog light connectors. Remove bumper.

How do I change right front head light


The 2008 CTS is the same as my 2009 CTS.
To access the any of the bulbs, you need to remove the bumper/grille assembly.
I just did mine and installed some aftermarket HID bulbs.
If you have some skill and patience, it will take you around an hour.
I'll try to remember all the steps, but I did find a video on youtube that shows it very well:
Remove the long plastic cover over the radiator, by unscrewing the 6 plastic clips. There some rubber molding attached, but you can just flip the cover over on top of the engine.
This exposes 2 10mm screws that can be removed - they'll look like they are attached to the grille. Don't remove them yet.
If front of each front tire in the edge of the wheel well, there are two plastic pins. The pins are actually two pieces, pry the center piece straight out about a quarter inch, then the whole pin can be popped out.
Under the front lower edge are 5-7 similar clips that need to be removed the same way. There about 15-20 of them under there, but you don't have to remove them all. I recall that two of them are upside down.
Now he scary part.... back to the wheel well. Get a flashlight. I recall the inner fender is under the bumper edge; it needs to be pulled out from behind the bumper. Then pull the inner fender backwards from the bumper; it's very stiff, but you need to pull it about 3/4" and look straight up through the gap. There is a 10mm screw, about one inch from the edge of the bumper/fender. This screw holds the bumper to the fender. Use a 10mm socket and a long extension to remove it. (do both sides)
Then you can firmly pull the side of the bumper sideways from the car.
There are 4 of those plastic pin/clips to removed under the hood, next to the headlight. Then you can remove the two 10mm screws under the hood, and the bumper can be lifted off.

Each of the headlight housings are held on by two 10mm screws and a 10mm nut. The is one electrical connector to unclip.

There are 3 covers on each housing. Each cover is held on by 3 8mm? screws. Your low beam is the top bulb.

How do you remove the front bumper of a Mercedes Benz cl65 amg


Lift the front end of the car and support on stands.
Remove the front wheels.
Remove the fowards under-tray.
Remove the forward halves of the front wheel arch liners.
Unscrew the small down-facing Torx screw at each top rear corner of the bumper.
Gently pry inwards the rear end of the U-shaped steel channel that holds the fender and bumper flanges together.
Pull the channel rearwards to disengage the lugs from the diagonal slots at the forward end, and remove the channels.
Disconnect the external air temp sensor in the bottom left air intake.
Disconnect the parking sensors connector at the right rear corner. You need to open the lever lock and pull hard without damaging the wiring.
Open the hood and remove two bolts on top of the bumper, next to the inner headlamp mountings.
Remove two nuts in lower grille - vertically beneath above bolts.
If its your first time, get a friend and pull the bumper forwards very slowly and gently, avoiding scratching the fenders.
The bumper is surprisingly light.

It will take about an hour.

2001 old aurora replace radiator


With a 4.0-remove the air filter housing and unbolt the ECM (located under the air housing). I did not unbolt the harness connector to the ECM, I just moved to out of the way, but if you do decide to remove it, disconnect the battery first. Remove the rubber cover above the radiator, and unbolt the brackets above the radiator. Remove the headlights (both sides) to gain access to the bolts that hold the AC condenser to the radiator, then remove the lower air dam. Drain the radiator (drain plug is on the lower corner, driver side), it is somewhat easier if you remove the air intake grill on that side which is held in place by two screws. Unbolt the bolts that hold the radiator in place to the radiator frame, then unhook the top and bottom radiator hoses at the clamps. Unhook the harnesses from the fan radiators, and lift out the assemblies as a unit, it is a tight fit. From another user on Fixya.

Remove front bumper 1999 tarago


Hi
This is how you remove the front bumpers from 1990-2000 model Toyota taragos/Previas
First if your tarago/previa has a bull bar it has to be removed, before you can remove the front bumper.

There are 6 X 18 mm bolts secured to the bull bar brackets, remove the 3 x 18mm on the left and 3 x 18mm on the left and place the bull bar in a secure area to reattach later, don't be surprised if its full of rust it needs to be sand blasted, rust treated and repainted.
The next step is to remove the bull bar brackets to do this you must remove the grille to access the 4 x 18mm bolts on the inside of the grille 2 x 18mm on the left and 2 x 18mm on the right.

Open the bonnet of your tarago/previa there is a screw at the top of the center of the grille that has to be removed and placed in a container to reassemble later.

The next step is a bit tricky but with persistence and practice you will get better, the grille has four plastic clips that hold the grill in place.


Now listen carefully, you cant just pull on the grille firmly and hope that strength alone will pop the grille, these clips are designed to open when the grille is pushed into place so the top and bottom of the clip have to be depressed to slide the insert out to remove the grille, but you can depress one side a time it dosent have to be both at the same time.


It just takes take and patience to do, start from the top left clip, pull the grille towards you and with a flat blade screw driver look down the grill and press the top of the clip still pulling the grille, the clip will depress but now you have to do the bottom of that clip too.


There are gaps in the grille you need a tool like a L shape pick or an interior tool shaped like a L for removing door trims, you can buy these items at $2 dollar shops, you feed the tool through the gap in the grille and place it under the bottom of the clip and when you press down it lifts up depressing the bottom of the clip while you are still pulling the grille towards you.


Once that clip is out stay on the left side and do the left bottom clip repeat the process and then do the right top clip and then the bottom right clip, when the grill is out push all the clips back into the grille so you don't loose them and place grille in a secure place until your ready to reassemble.


When you reassemble the grille you just place the grille over the insert holes and push them back into place they will automatically snap back into position and then screw the center top grill screw back in.


Now the grille is out, you will need an extension on your ratchet to reach and remove these bolts 4 X 18mm bolts, 2 on the left and 2 on the right, there is a dryer bottle on the left or right of your vehicle depending on country, so the extension needs to be reasonable long.


Once the brackets are removed place the bolts into your container, there are 4 x10mm bottom bumper bolts securing the bumper onto the reinforcement bar remove them.


Then there are 2 X 10mm upper corner bumper bolts securing the bumper to the body remove them, and then the last 2 X 10mm to be removed are at the bottom of the corner bumper secured on to a rail.


Once these 10mm bolts are removed the front bumper will slide off, place the bolts in your container and reassemble when ready.


Cheers

Instructions on how to replace a radiator in a 2001 Aurora

Unbolt the bolts that hold the radiator in place to the radiator frame, then unhook the top and bottom radiator hoses at the clamps. Unhook the harnesses from the fan radiators, and lift out the assemblies as a unit, it is a tight fit but I was able to remove mine without separating the two. I have a 2000 Intrigue with a 3.5 and have replaced the radiator on it as well, and the techniques are similar although not as tight fitting.

Attempting to remove plastic molding around passenger rear vent motor, having difficulty. any help would be appreciated


This is more difficult than it looks because the rear trim panels must be removed in a certain order as they overlap at their edges.

First remove the rear seat.
Remove the step panel from the floor near the side door opening.
Unbolt the 2 seat belt anchors.
Remove the trim panel below the lift gate (rear hatch opening.) Pry the screw plugs out with a small screwdriver and remove the screws.
Pry out the rear speaker grill using a flat blade screwdiver that has been taped to prevent scratches.
Remove the rear speaker mounting screws. Pull the speaker out and unplug the connector.
Remove the passenger side trim panel mounting screws.
Use a panel clip removal tool and pry the clips that hold the trim panel then lift the panel away.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Air bag light is blinking


Guys! Are you readying your airbag system after messing around with your truck?

I've seen airbag lights come on for man reasons, faulty sensors, connections, replacing RADIOS! Removing seats!! All sorts of reasons. Personally I bought my QX56 with the airbag light blinking. Drove me crazy for 24 hours till I decided to reset it n see what happened. It takes two minutes to do. No tools.

1. Turn key from off to on. (on meaning all your dash lights are on but your not cranking the motor)

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.
