    I've got the same problem - it just started a few days ago. Occasionally, I hear a faint beeping sound, but my a/c controls (the electronic ones) go dead and no longer light up. I can still turn on/off the blower and adjust the temp and fan speed, but I can't change from recirculate air to external air inlet, switch from a/c to vent or control which vents the air comes from. I have a 2004 RX8 w/ less than 32,000 mi, but unfortunately, I bought it 51 months ago (so the 48mo/40000mi warranty just expired). Also, my TPMS warning light won't turn off - the pressure was low on one tire, but after adding air and driving for 30 mins, it's still on (not flashing, solid light).

The front of the cd player is removable from the body of the whole unit when the rear screws are removed.Take it appart and clean the contacts on the connector.You can also trying turing on the ignition and just push the face of the radio inward watch the display to see if it makes contact.

I have blown a fuse in 1997ford F150 ext cab 4wheel drive,I have checked fuses inside panel ,what am I missing ?where is battery fuse? And what does it look like?

Can you tell us the problem? How do you know you have a blown fuse? Your owners manual may give fuse box information. You may have an under hood fuse box.

I have a 2000 buick park ave & none of my windows (all 4 of them) will go up is this a blown fuse & where is the fuse box located at for the windows?

Power Windows
The vehicle is equipped with power windows controlled by the door modules. The Driver Door Module receives a window switch request, over the SBI serial data, from either the passenger door module wired to the window switch pressed or from the driver door switch assembly. The DDM checks the Class 2 serial data to see if the status information is correct (i.e. ignition switch position) to permit window operation.
If the status information to permit window operation is correct, the DDM sends the command to the door module controlling the window to move the window as requested.
Windows Power and Ground
The windows are powered by discreet power and ground circuits. These circuits are in the same dedicated connector as the window motor drive circuit .
DDM fuse 10amp rear fuse box , under rear seat !
PWR/WDO CIRCUIT BREAKER 30amp in the under hood MAXI fuse block .The fuse maybe blown but I doubt the circuit breaker would be bad . This is very complex I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop or a Buick dealer .

Why do none of my turn signals or hazard lights work?

Hopefully nothing more serious than a blown fuse. Open your fuse box and see if any are blown/broken. If so, get a new fuse at any auto parts store. If you can't find your fuse box (often located under the hood, or under the steering wheel area), many good auto parts stores will help you find it.

What kind of fuse do I need on my 1999 Mercedes Benz ML320 for the power windows? All of them suddenly stopped working and I think the fuse may have blown?

So, if you think you blew the fuse, replacing it will likely find you with 2 blown fuses. Try This site has a wealth of information and extremely knowledgeable people on their forums. I'm pretty sure your fuse box is under the hood on the drivers side though.

No power to the fuse box on a 1995 buick lesabre

Have you checked the fuseable link wires coming off the starter solenoid ?

Heater display indicator and electric window

Check your fuses. First check your owner's manual for fuse box locations. If a fuse is blown it will have a break in the small wire that runs through the inside of the fuse or the inside will look charred and black or brown. Try going to a store that sells fuses and looking at new fuses to get an idea of what you'll be looking for. Your fuse box is most likely located on the side of the drivers side dashboard. You'll have to open the door to access it. If it isn't there, other likely places include under the dash on either side or in the glovebox. If the fuse box diagram isn't on the cover it can likely be found in your owner's manual. I imagine each of those controls are all on the same fuse and that would explain why they all went out at the same time. Should you find that none of your fuses are blown there is another set of fuses under the hood. You'll find them inside a relatively small rectangular or square box under the hood possibly marked "fuse box". Again the diagram should be on the cover and if it isn't check your owner's manual. If none of those are blown then my next idea would be that there is a short somewhere along the entire circuit in which case only a technician could diagnose and help you with that. A short in your circuit could cause a fire and burn down your car so I suggest that you fix this problem as soon as possible. Hope this helps:)

My dash lights are out as well as my back running lights what is the problem.

Yes there is I am not sure where it is.the usually places are: Drivers side kick panel by your feet. could be on the ends of the dash broad drive or passenger side, look for small door on end of dash, you must open door to see it. Gm sometimes puts it in the clove box if it has one. If you don't find any fuses blown it could be the (BCM) Body Control Module. but may sure none are blown under the hood because the Body Control Moduel gets its power from there. Check the large fuse I think it a 60 Amp
