Question about 2003 Chevrolet Venture Passanger

1 Answer

On my 2003 venture, both brakelights burn out, they seem to get hot and melt at the base. This happens over the course of two to three weeks. First one goes then the other. What's up with that?

The blend door actuator can be seen from driver's side above gas pedal. Removal of lower hush panel is required and a double jointed arm you can get to it lying on your back. Make sure the seat is all the way back. I think the screws are 5.5 mm and three of them.

Smell of burning rubber on offside rear wheel. Intermittent. Kia Ceed 113bhp 1.6

It could be the handbrake, and easy to check. Next time you smell it, feel the nearside brake caliper or drum, then carefully touch the offside one. You will notice the difference in heat. Under normal use, they get warm, but if it is burning, it will too hot to touch.

Also look under the car for anything near or touching the exhaust. Check mud flaps if you have them that they are not touching the tyre when you are in motion.

Hi, Classic ckp(crankshaft position sensor problem), check ckp harness wiring from ignition module to ckp sensor(tends to short out or burn on hot engine parts). You can repair wiring usually if its not too bad. What usually happens is it drops ckp signal and car shuts down but signal is immediately restored when cranking back up. Very hard to catch this problem in the act even with a scanner while driving usually does not set a code either. I usually inspect wiring to sensor back up to module for burn or melted spots. If all looks good even with a extensive wiggle test when engine is warm, I would replace ckp sensor. P.S. This will sometime result in bogging and misfires too when its getting ready to stall.

2003 ford focus headlight plug burned out

this sounds like the wires in the plug have shorted together at times and overheated the plug.or the wiring near the plug touched and overheated,look at the wiring from the plug back a ways and see if it looks like it has gotten hot or signs of melting,you may need to repair the wires when the plug is replaced.check the headlight bulb as well for signs of getting hot at the base of the bulb or just replace the bulb.
