The 1st question concerns problems with a central body control module, the dealer needs to test the module to see what sensor or component is causing this problem, it may be a limit switch or the module itself that is causing the problem with the roof and door glasses. The gas tank has a sensor in it that looks like a toilet float, it is connected to a variable rheostat that sends the level signal of the gas tank to the gauge, these rheostat's fail and then u show empty all the time, the reason they don't fail showing full is to prevent you from thinking u have plenty of fuel and getting stranded, so they always show empty when the level sensor fails inside the gas tank, to replace this part the whole fuel pump module must be replaced.

The enginr dors not shutout,the windows do not open,the flashers do not work,the trunk stays locked,the doors do not lock all together,the roof trap does not open,and the battery red light on the board...


for one thing, you have a vacuum leak. this is causing the locks and engine shut down issue. start by disconnecting the vacuum tube that goes from the engine compartment through the firewall to the inside of the car (drivers side near brake booster/reservoir). disconnect and cap the engine side and tape to make an airtight seal. now, if the engine shuts down with the key, the leak is inside the car somewhere. to isolate inside the car, disconnect vacuum at each door 1 at a time and see if the other locks work. If you get this far, remember, you have to hook up the vacuum tube you capped in the engine compartment.

I have a 1997 ford tauraus station wagon..It has 30,000 miles on it..Keep having problems with dome light staying on.The little red light stays on on the dash showing a door is ajar.Has been to dealer 3...


it sounds like a door switch is sticking, spray the dome light buttons at each door one at a time. and open and close the door a few times to see if one is sticking. if they are sticking then it should solve the problem. I suppose the dealer never mentioned this because they are out to rob everyone. you can use wd-40, electrical spray etc. spray switches good then open and close the doors. if this does not work, try to pull fuse. its worth a try!

Check fluid levels, like oil & coolant, or maybe windshield washer fluid.

1997 Chevy Cavalier Convertible top not working


You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. The fluid must be going somewhere.
If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.

Take some WD40 and open the doors and spray a liberal amount into each of the door latches. Then open and close the doors firmly several times. This will work most of the time to unstick the ajar switches.

Convertible top will not retrack


Hi Stan

First of all the roof is not even soppose to operate while the trunk is open - So there is the first problem Ive been involved with BMW's for a long time and this is the first Ive heard of a roof opening while the trunk is open. There is a built in feature that tells the car not to open the roof if the trunk is open and the other way roung while the roog lid is open the trunk cant open.

The reason the roof is not working anymore as soon as there is stress on the roof the electric motors(One operates the roof and the other operates the roof lid)  disengages, You said that the roof still worked but the lid did not so probably only the one motor disengaged. So what you have to do is open the trunk on the left hand side right behind the tail light pull away the material and simply just push the electric motor into place. that should fix your problem.

It may happen that the two motors have become out of sync, Disengage both electric motors manualy put the roof away engage the motors and that should put the roof and lid back into sync.

The problem is that your roof(SOFT TOP) lid isnt closing properly. If you open the roof lid you see there is a button on one of the latches that tells the car that the roof is securely closed if your roof lid is not secure the trunk wont open. To test this press down on the roof lid and the try to open the trunk.
