SOURCE: wheel lock nut & bolt stripped...how can i fix this ??

YES YOU CAN BUY NEW LUG NUTS AND KEYS AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORE. THE ONLY PROBLEM I CAN SEE IS GETTING THE OLD LUG OFF. AS FAR AS THAT GOES, JUST BE AS CAREFUL AS POSSIBLE NOT TO STRIP IT OUT ANY MORE THAN IT ALREADY IS.

Take throttle body off, clean Throttle Body with Carburator cleaner. I had same problem and its the ethynol in fuel that creates a build up in the throttle body which creates this problem. I did what a friend of mine said to do (service manager at Dodge Dealership) it hasnt happened again.

SOURCE: Starter relay clicks, engine does not start

Your problem may be a ignition switch.  This part is inside the steering column.  Your ignition key/tumbler turns this piece to start the vehicle.  I see a lot of these that go bad.  Some are easy and some aren't.  Your Chilton should tell you how to change them.

Bright lights turn on when making right turns


The solution is to replace (or possibly repair) the turn signal/dimmer switch.
The switch has three contacts and a slide which control the bright lights and is filled with dielectric grease. When the temperature goes down the grease gets a little thicker and the slide won't work very well.
The switch has two screws and one plug and can be accessed after removing the top steering column cover.

Headlights will work on bright but not on dim. Tail lights will work regardless if one has it on bright or dim. Daytime driving lights work. The problems must be in the light switch on the left side of...


you could have a dimmer switch problem that may need an adjustment or replacement.do you hear the switch click when you try to change from high to low,if not than these could be the problem.the switch is located on the top of the steering colume and the base of the colume under the dash.if you work the dimmer switch on the colume and put your hand on the colume under the dash you should be able to feel the rod that pushes on the switch.follow the rod down and it will go to the dimmer switch.there are 2 5/16 bolts that hold it in place that if you loosen them and push the switch up towards the steering wheel it will move it so the rod won`t have to move as far to change from low to high.if this is not the problem and you don`t hear a click then its usually a switch replacement.

Your Problem is most likely your multifunction switch. This switch is on your steering column and operates the bright and dim headlights, turn signals, hazards and wipers and wash. You will have to remove the cover around the steering column to get to it and replace it. Feel free to contact me for more info if you need help doing this. I will do my best to respond right away.

Both headlights went out same time . bulbs are good . fuses are good. back lights work and high beam works too. what else can it be? and is this common with these cars . 1998 acura 2.5 tl year is 1998 not...


Test the leads to the bulbs while the low beams are on and then when the brights are on. If you have good bulbs & fuses with no power on low, the problem is most likely the bright/dim switch.
Not exactly sure of the Acura layout, but the covers over the steering shaft should remove with several screws to allow access to the switch (usually the turn signals are also the bright/dim switch) Test the leads out to the headlights from the bright/dim switch, that will tell you if the switch is bad.
Airbags are closely involved with this removal/replacement, it is NOT recommended for a amatuer to undertake.

Fog lights do not come on either when using headlights or with the fog lamp switch in my 2002 Grand Am SE. Fuse seems to be fine.


REPLACE THE FOG LAMP SWITCH DOWN ON THE STEERING COLM. REMOVE THE PROTEC. PANEL UNDER STEERING COLM. AND GENTLY START TO LOWER THE COLM. WATCH OUT FOR THE SHIFT IND. WIRE- REMOVE IT- LOWER COLM. AND HALF WAH DOWN ON THE TOP SIDE IS THE SWITCH FOR THE FOG LAMP CONTROL IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REPLACED THE ELEC. SWITCH - (PUSH BUTTON OR ROCKER STYLE ).IN THE DASH. IF - - LIGHTS AREON AND THE FOG LAMPS ARE TURNED ON AND THE HEAD LIGHT GO OUT OR WONT CHANGE FROM DIM TO BRIGHT REPLACE HIGH/LOW SWITCH ON COLM. SAME PROCEDURE AS FOG CONTOL SWITCH.
