I would first pull both the fuse and the relay for the wipers and inspect for corrosions and plug in, then pull out both several times. If that makes no difference, try any connectors along the line.

WHAT IS THE FIREING ORDER OF 1983 V8GASOLINE BENZ


The firing order for an '83 Mercedes-Benz V-8 is 1-5-4-8-6-3-7-2. And, here's some more information. If you are wondering which physical plug corresponds to the number 1, look at the engine's banks (it's a V-8, so there will be two banks for four cylinders). As you stand there -- you should be at the front looking toward the windshield -- the left-hand bank of cylinders are 1 to 4 (1,2,3,4) and the right-hand bank is 5 to 8 (5,6,7,8). I hope this helps.

I have replaced the alternator in our windstar twice in the last several years I had to replace the windshield wiper motor 3 months ago. My battery is 2 years old. Now the alternator & battery are dead...


well the good thing is if there is a spike the battery will take it before other electrical componets check in the distribution box for bad relays & fuses

It could be the temp sensor switch. Fuel injected engines (most GM models) use the temp sensor as the choke sensor as well. I had a Buick that did the same thing and replaced temp sensor and worked fine thereafter.

97 bonnerville shut down while driving


I have a 97 Bonneville that would die with no rhyme or reason several years ago. Took it to Pontiac dealer, and they were just about to call me and tell me to come pick up the car, with that old stand-by "can't replicate the problem". When they went to move it out of the repair bay, it died on them. Finally pinpointed what they termed a "flexible fuse" that is, in effect, floppy. When the fuse would shift just the right way, it would cut power to the engine. They replaced the fuse and all has been well on that front ever since. Probably happened about 6 or 7 years ago.

How to Fit a Cabin Filter


Hiya...the cabin air filter is located below the front passenger/windshield area.
It's only accessible by standing outside the Equinox with the hood open.
Here's how to do it...(before you pop open the hood)

1) Stand outside at the front-right door area.
2) Just below the front windshield area, pull up a few small black plastic clips that's on the black windshield wiper cowl area- a small flat screwdriver or a special clip-remover tool is handy.
3) Raise the hood up.
4) There may be a triangular-shaped hard foam sound damper at the left side nearby the hood hinge...pull it off if it allow you to work around it with ease.
5) Continue to find a few black plastic clips around the black windshield wiper cowl area.
6) Gently pull up the black windshield wiper cowl cover with care not to bend it too hard during removal.
7) You should see the cabin air filter inside that's held in place by a black rectangular box inside.
8) There's 2 black tabs that holds the cabin air filter in place.
9) Insert your finger or tool to pry the cabin air filter away from the tabs.
10) Remove old cabin air filter.

Remember to reinstall the clip parts back into place when you're finished.
