    HELLO JOECOOLETTE:



    AFTER CHECKING THE TEMPERATURE GAGE WHEN THE CAR REACHES THE FUNTIONAL LEVEL AND, I FOUND OUT THAT BOTH FUNS ARE WORKING. THE CAR CONTINUE HEATING UP WHEN RUNNING WITH OR WITHOUT THE AIR CONDIITONING, BUT THE NEEDLE FROM THE TEMPERTURE GAGE COME DOWN TO NORMAL(HALF OF THE GAGE) WHEN THE CAR COMES TO AN STOP. AFTER TESTING THE OLD ORIGINAL TERMOSTATE AND I FOUND OUT THAT IT WAS WORKING, SO I DECIDED TO CHANGE IT FOR THE NEWER ONE AS THE OLD ONE WAS THE ORIGINAL, , BUT I AM STILL HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM.



    BEFORE I CAHNGE THE RADIATOR I NOTICED THAT THERE WAS A RINGINH NOISE BY THE ALTERNATOR SIDE AND I AM WONDERING IF COULD IT BE THAT THE WATTER PUMP MAY BE GOING BAD?



    CAN YOU OFFER SOME CLUES ON WHAT TO CHECK FOR WATTER PUMP PROBLEMS?



    I TRULY APPRECIATE YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND ADVICE.

    JEAN

I would definitely think that your water pump was still working since you said that the temperature comes back down to normal when you come to a stop. If it wasnt working it would heat up even more since there was no air over or water moving through the radiator. One way you can check to see if the water pump is working though is by removing the ratiator cap, when the engine is COLD, and starting the car up and waiting for the pump to kick on. Obviously you will have to wait for the egine to warm up, you can speed this up by turning on your A/C, and once it is warm and the pump kicks on you will actually be able to see the coolant moving inside the radiator. If the car gets up to normal temp and then goes higher while you are waiting to see this coolant movement your pump is probably bad. If you see the coolant move, you need to replace your radiator. You probably want someone to help you do this, one person in the car, one outside. Just make sure you are careful when looking into the radiator, wear some safety goggles. Let me know if you have any further questions and thanks again for using FixYa!

The passenger side brake light, and passenger side (front and back) window control doesn't work is it a fuse?


Well, the short answer is no.
The lights and windows are are different fuses.
There's a slight chance you have a problem with a ground wire on that side, but I doubt the two problems are related.
I would check the light for power and ground, and look at the window switches for power and ground. The windows are powered thru the driver switch on most cars.

Turn tey and nothing happens. Has good battery,


It is possible that you have a partial connection to the battery, enough to get lights to function but not enough to crank the engine. I had the same problem with my cherokee. Try tightening all connections to the battery. If not it may be your starter solenoid. Let me know if you need anything else or if this works.
