Airbag light on 2001 sonata, also small modular under pasanger seat broken cover, and under driver seat there is a wonnector that does'nt go anywhere. thank's


First the airbag system can be dangerous to work on and it is usually best to consult a professional since to accidental inflation of an airbag can cause injury, do not cut any wires and disconnect the battery when working on the system.
When the airbag light is on it disables the airbag system inmost vehicles meaning if there is a collision the airbags will not deploy. Some autoparts stores can check codes which is where to start with the warning light on and modular connected check the airbag trouble codes with this information it will be easier to diagnose the system and the cause of your problem. I hope this helps

Throttle Position Sensors on engines


1.3) TPS - Throttle Position Sensor

What is it? This is an electrical device that detects the position of the throttle plate.

Where is it located? The TPS is found on the exterior of the throttle body on the opposite end of the throttle shaft to the accelerator linkage arm. It usually consists of a small black plastic unit with an electrical connector attached to it.

How does it work? The TPS is a variable resistor madeup of an arc shaped carbon track with an applied voltage of 0 to 5 volts along its length and a sliding contact that picks up the voltage at any point along it. The device has three electrical connections, two provide the voltage range along the carbon track and the third (most often the middle connection) sends a voltage to the ECU in accord with the position of the sliding contact point on the arc. This siding contact arm is attached to the end of the throttle shaft. As the throttleshaft rotates, opening and closing the throttle plate, the sliding contact sweeps up and down the carbon track providing voltage readings to the ECU; 0 volts for closed to 5 volts for fully open.
When the engine is at idle the TPS output should signal the ECU that the throttle is closed (low volts) and therefore the ECU should either open the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve or (on some engines) engage the idle speed control motor to maintain the engine idle speed. Sometimes a micro contact switch on the throttle body exterior associated with the throttle shaft is used to detect and confirm when the throttle plate is fully closed.

Heated seats buick lucerne 2007 wont heat or cool


The module for the heated/cooled seats is underneath the front passenger seat. Buick had a problem with poor contact on the connector plug resulting in a melted connector. The module is mounted to the bottom of the seat and although it's tight, you can remove the two nuts holding it in place and pull it out to the front of the seat to access the connectors (there are 3). I had a burned connector on the biggest connector. I found a replacement connector (12-cavity) and terminals on eBay and just finished wiring the new connector. Results are disappointing because the driver's seat still doesn't work and the passenger's seat doesn't work all the time. Guess it's time to invest in a new module.

After replacing the ALT 100A fuse in my 2002 Solara the idling is so low the car won't stay on unless I give it gas; it turns off at any full stop I come to. Any ideas what could be causing this?


Your throttle body has built up gunk in it. When the power was lost from the blown fuse, the learned values in the ecu for idle were lost. After this the default values are used, which are too low for stable idle when there the throttle body is dirty.

Remove the intake hose from the throttle body and clean the inside of the throttle body with a rag wetted with throttle body cleaner or non-chrlorinated brake parts cleaner. Be sure to open the throttle plate to get it totally clean.
Your idle will return to normal afterwards.

Car will start but wont stay on


Idle adjustment. You didn't state the vehicle, so I will post two possible solutions.

Fuel injected engines typically have an IAC valve in the throttle body. This valve adjusts the throttle plate to be open to a certain extent. The computer can control this valve as need based on the density of oxygen in the air. Remove the throttle body and clean the IAC valve or replace it if necessary. Mechanical (gas engine) experience necessary.

Carb engines typically have an idle adjustment screw on the exterior that may need adjusted. Mechanical (gas engine) experience necessary.
