SOURCE: I need to reset my computer on a 2006 chev equinox

there are 2 ways to do this, use a scan tool ($50 for a basic one) to reset the light, the other is to disconnect the battery for 5-10 minutes, be advised if the problem is not corrected that set the light the light will come back on in about 20 miles, also if the system is not ready u will fail smog, this means they (person doing the smog) know there was a problem.

SOURCE: I have three wires that run form the battery down

Your positive the red wire goes on the big bolt of your starter - You should have two smaller wires - One is from the distributor and the other is from the igniton. Hook these two wires up the same way you took it off. If you are not sure of how the wire came off and should go back buy a Chilton - It is not like re-wiring a light switch and it won't turn on if it isn't connected correctly - This could mess up your car if it isn't wired correctly!

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.

Possibly. It depends on what the climate is like where you live. For instance, if you live in an area where the summer climate hits 110 (i.e. Phoenix), then your vehicle will need to be serviced more regularly. Best recommendation, take your vehicle to AutoZone, Checkers, O'Reillys, etc. for a free diagnostic check.

SOURCE: My 2006 Chevrolet equinox cooling fans and front

I would find the circuit breaker relay that supplies power to whichever power distribution box that contains the cooling fan relays. If the box has power, then you may want to consider the following: I feel that if you find out why the fans quit working, then you may also have solved the front turn signal issue.

Electric Fan(s) not working, Checking the fan(s), relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Verify that the fans work by unplugging them and run jumper wires to the fan(s) from the battery. If they run, your problem lies elsewhere. If either does not run, it's the motor.
Next thing to check is for power at the fan connectors. You have to be cautious doing this because the engine needs to be running and warm if not almost hot, and the A/C also needs to be on. (Both must be on and running for the duration of this checklist.) The A/C fan is on the passenger side and should come on almost the instant the A/C is turned on. It is also the secondary engine cooling fan and should cycle on and off in relation to engine temperature, (If the A/C is OFF). Use a test light to probe the two wires on each fan. If you find power, the fan motor(s) is/are probably bad. If there is no power to fans, roll up your sleeves!

The temperature switch is usually located above the oil filter. If the dash gage is working, its probably OK. Next is the Fan Control Temperature Sensor, located IN or CLOSE to the thermostat housing. You will find out if it is working later is this checklist. I just wanted you to know where it is. Next is the relays and fuse's. Usually located in the engine compartment on the passenger side power distribution box. You will need to remove anything over the cover to open it. If the fuses are OK, tap on the relays or pull them out and push back in. If the fans are still not running, pull a relay and probe the socket terminals for power. Two of the terminals should have power, usually criss-cross from each other. One hot terminal is battery power, and the other is the "signal" voltage which triggers the relay to send 12V battery power to the fan. This signal voltage comes from the sensor at the thermostat. If only one terminal has power, then I would replace the sensor at the thermostat, if not both sensors.

How to fix my horn.


You can first disconnect the 2 wires from the horn, then connect 2 individual wires to the horn and test by connecting to a battery. This would tell you if your horn is working or not.

If working, then you ve an electrical problem. You may check the fuse, check the first 2 wires from vehicle that connects to the horn if there is power. Someone must press the horn button during this test.

Hope it works out. Let us know

Horn does not work properly sounds like a toyota horn already checked both relays.


Your vechicle only has one horn on it if it is working but has poor sound You need to ck for a poor ground or poor voltage at the horn The horn is located behind the left headlamp disconnect the horn and ck the power wire for 12 volts (green wire) then ck the black wire for a good ground 0 ohms fron the connector to battery Neg post. If these readings are correct then the horn needs to be replaced

How to find fuse for a 2006 chevy equinox driver's power window


power windows are not usually fused. They have a circuit breaker that controls all the windows. So if only one window is not working it is something like a bad switch or window motor. Remove the door panel and unplug the connector to the window motor and check for power and ground when activating the switch.

Is 2010 equinox trailer wiring the same as a2009 equinox


No the wiring system changed to a 2-wire system. You actually wouldn't need a specific harness. You could purchase a 4-flat connecter (at least 60" long) and directly splice it in behind your tail lights. The 4-flat will have 4 colors
Yellow-Left turn/Stop Green- Right turn/Stop Brown-Running Lights White-Ground
The Equinox wiring colors are quite similar. I will list the 4-flat color first-and then the Equinox color.
Driver side behind the taillight. Yellow-Yellow/Black Brown-Brown White-Black
Passenger Side Green-Green/Black
