SOURCE: onboard temp gauge

you need to go to the parts house and purchase an ambient temperature sensor. that is the sensor that tells the car what the outside temp. is. I hope that helps you out.

SOURCE: horn doesn't work on 2005 Pontiac Vibe. Can't

On the 06 Vibe the horn is located just to the right of center, almost below the hood latch, in front of the radiator. It looks like a small round speaker...
check to make sure the wire is plugged in, it can come lose or even fall out. it is easy to check and fix.

If that does not work, my best guess would be that either the horn is blown or the wiring is messed up.

good luck.

SOURCE: Horn not working

Horns have power to them all the time. When you push the horn button, you are completing a circuit by providing a Ground.

Before the horn gets it's power for the 2003 Pontaic GrandAm, the power goes through a Horn Relay. (Number 21 relay)

It may be a bad relay, horn slip ring contact button, (Located under steering wheel), or bad horn/s.

The horns are located up under the front air dam, tucked up close to the air conditioner condenser. VERY hard to get to.

SOURCE: horn on 2005 Pontiac Grand Am stopped working

I too am having horn problems with my 2005 grand am . Although mine died slowly I rode the horn infront of a friends house and I could hear it changing pitch dieing out so to say. Soon after 2-3 weeks I would check to see if it still messed up then nothing. Ive gone through every fuse and tested all the power up to the actual horn under the hood because Its hard to hold a test light under the hood and press the horn but I put my top dollar on its a defective horn. They kept alot of defects on the hush hush , Turn signal relays going crazy , timing chain noise , Defective tire bolts poor thread, poor transmissions , power seats , Nothing that causes wrecks so no mandates yet. The + to the whole story is GM did make this car stupid easy to work on and parts are at a fair price. They are dime a dozen in a junk yard you can swap alot of parts from the cavilier , alearo , sunfire , HHR , Ps dirty oil kills this motor faster than anything the new tech in this stuff count alot on never gumming up and keeping a clean everything.Its not like the older cars 1970 where things clear them selfs and building a strong motor was the only factor.Good luck with the horn It also has a relay in the fuse box under the hood bottom left if your standing infront of the car. I belive you can grab the one right next to it the one for the fog lights and swap them to test it out they are the same.By the way all in all I like this car.

Can not get horn to blow on a 2001 malibu

2001 malibu horn fuse and relay are located in the under the hood fuse box.
location 21 should be the relay
location 43 should be the fuse.
if the relay is put in wrong the horn will not work. if you replaced the relay and the horn stopped working try pulling the relay out and turning it around. and try the horn again.

Cylinder head torque specs fro 2002 dawoo

Hi Chris, I think (but not 100 percent sure). Cylinder head, torque to 19 nm, loosen 90 degrees. Retighten to 29 nm. Paint spot of white paint on front of bolt head and tighten additional 90 degrees and then another 90 degrees (Total 180 degrees) You won't be far wrong anyway. Loosen head from outside working to center. Tightening is opposite starting from center spiralling outwards. Follow tightening sequence in steps, not in one movement. I would tighten as follows; 19 nm then loosen 90 degrees, tighten to 29 nm, mark bolt heads with paint and turn each bolt 20 degrees until 90 nm and then continue tightening to full torque. Regards John

I have a 2005 lexus rx330. the odometor stopped working. how do I fix it?

check and see if your cruise control still works your problem probably lays with in a speed sensor you have an output vehicle speed sensor that can cause the problem and i say a vehicle speed sensor because you didnt say anything in reference to having a abs ight on on your dash if you do have that as well you could possibly need a wheel speed sensor as well but i would lean more towards vehicle speed sensor output sensor

2005 Nissan 1400 Standard. The hooter buttons on the steering wheel works intermittently. The ******* themselves work OK. I would like to know what to look for?

First locate the horn in the engine compartment should be between the front grill and radiator core support. Pull the horn off, it has one wire and one bolt holding it on. next clean the bolt area where it is bolted on with sand paper to get a good ground. Sand it on the bottom of the mounting bracket and on the area where the horn bolts on. next get a wire and hook to the positive side of the battery, touch the horn to the negative side so it has a ground then touch the horn wire connector with the wire connected to the positive side of the wire does the horn work? if so it was needing cleaning, if not you will need to replace the horn. There are two things that you can do before you replace it look for a single screw on the horn and back it out three or four turns the try it again before installing, if this makes it work better then you know the problem that the reeds are going out replace the horn for $15.00 at any auto parts store. Or buy a air horn for $20.00 bucks and replace it with that, it's louder and easy to install. Nissan has always had issues with the horn so your not alone on this issue. Also check to see if a wasp built a next inside the horn or a mud dauber may have built a nest in the horn, if there is obstruction in the throat of the horn clean it out and try it again. Of all Nissan's I have worked on I have found it necessary to replace the horn about 90% of the time.
