Problem with Vcs light after replacing steering column. Parking brake will not hold

The parking brake has never hold well. so I have to make sure I don't park in any inclination as the shifting gear engages and once you want to leave the gear has to be forced to shift. I had to replace the Steering Column already once because the gear broke and is not a part by itself but is part of the whole column. Also, the VCS OFF AND VCS TRAC LIGHT STAY ON after I changed the column. Any advice on how to fix the VCS/TRAC and Parking Brake/E-brake???

Dash lights and parking lights dont work


Do the headlights work? do the tail lights work?
If you haven't checked the fuses, do that first. If they aren't blown, the next likely problem is the switch itself. These can be found in working condition from a junk yard.
My Cavalier lost it's tail lights and parking lights, but the headlights worked, I had to replace the switch on the steering column.
If it is the problem, it is not too complicated to replace yourself with basic tools. You will need a steering wheel puller and you will want to disconnect the battering. Be extra careful with the airbag.
Good luck

Hummer H3 airbag light wont go off


Airbag light on in a Hummer H3 Dashboard???Here is the fix...
Start the engine of your car, set the parking brake, hold the regular brake pedal down with your right foot. Push down the parking brakepedal to its fully-applied position with your left foot.

Good Morning, I have a 1996 Chevy S-10 Blazer that I used the parking brake on yesterday. However, when I went to use the hand parking release, it would not release the parking break and it felt like...


Yup! That is probably what is causing your dilema. To remove the lower panel, the parking brake release cable must be disconnected. It is not hard to reconnect if you know what you are looking for. The service manual does not provide a picture or I would post it for you. Anyway, it just "Snaps" into place on the parking brake pedal mechanizm. The cable just slips into a slot on the release lever. You can actually reach up and release the brake with your hand. (Be carefull not to get your fingers pinched when the pedal flies rearward) If you can get the pedal released by hand, then you have found the lever that the cable attaches to.

Right turn signals don't work. when park lights are on nothing happens but when park lights are off the right turn signal flashes all the park lights


I had the same problem. It's the blinker switch in the steering column.
You'll need to pull the steering wheel, any cheapo s/w puller will do.
Unscrew the turn signal lever from the steering column. Replace part.
Worked like a champ for me.

Heater core


18901fc.gifHere is an exploded view of the heating/air conditioning blower box. This contraption is located on the passengerside under the dash. I've changed heater cores on other cars but never worked on a caravan so not sure how difficult it'll be. You may need to remove a few cover panels to access this and the heater core #22 is located behind the distribution box #6 containing parts 7-18 and hopefully comes off as a unit. I wouldn't want to put it back together just looking at the pic. You may just need to remove the heater tube cover #4 to access the connections and slide out the core.....NAH couldn't be that simple!!! Hope this was of some help. Good luck.

Can't find heater fan


The heater fan is located under the dash on the passenger side. In the 2001 Lumina you have to take out the 2 plugs holding the insulation in to remove the insulation. The heater fan is at the very front butting up against the firewall. Removing the front-most bolt is a real pain in the ****, so it might be easiest to remove that first and install it last.
