    does the control connect with electrical wires or do they look more like hollow tubes?

  • alikhandan00 Mar 25, 2011

    sjnk77 : well i believe they are electrical wires if you are referring to the control only for the temp gauge.

    holioloui : your link for the solution does not really have solutions but rather only questions and i cannot click on anything there so no further links to support.

    need this fixed asap otherwise honda dealership asking 350 for a new control... and i dont wanna pay that much

Yes i was referring to the heater control wires as hollow tubes would indicate a vacuum controlled control in which case a vacuum leak would cause the damper door to not operate properly in any case I think this may still be a problem check to see if there is any response when you switch between the different settings or if air only comes out in one place no matter what setting it is on. I guess I am not sure what the audio problem you are referring to is.

92 roadmaster instrument lights

Oh boy, I just went through this with my '92 Lesabre, took a long time to trace it all down, and wound up splicing in a new wire just to my instrument cluster lights. A short kept blowing fuses somewhere in that circuit.
Down where your feet go, up under the dash at the fuse panel, there is a 15 amp fuse for park/tail lights. When you hit the light switch (for heads or park lights), power is sent to that fuse, and then to the exterior park lights. There is another wire from that fuse (green wire on mine) that also goes up under the dash, and splices to several bulbs-on the radio, on the HVAC controller, on the ashtray light, also one to the under hood lamp, and then one to the dimmer/brighter switch on the dash, the rheostat that controls brightness of interior lights. One of the green splices goes into this switch, and then another wire goes from this switch to the instrument cluster for the gauge and dash illumination. I couldn't find the short, so ran a new wire from the park light fuse to the gray wire to the instrument cluster for the cluster bulbs. I bypassed the dimmer, and left off the HVAC bulbs and ashtray light. Too much trouble to wire them all up, and think my short may have been in the dimmer rheostat.
If you have a voltmeter, pull out the dimmer switch and check for power on those wires, the green from the fuse. The park light must be switched on, or the fuse has no power. There be 8 or 9 wires on that dimmer rheostat-I never did figure out where all of them went. Asked all over a Buick forum, but nobody had an answer.

My 95 nissan pickup has light issues. I can't seem to figure out what causing the night not to work I have tested the fuse block and all leads into the illumination control switch but don't know where

According to the wiring diagram, you should have two 15amp fuses powering the headlight switch. One wire is red and the other is red white.
Power out of the switch is pink blue for the tail lights, and red with green, blue, black, and yellow for each headlight circuit.

I can not control the air position .it is always at my feet ..and also i just change the thermostat and still some time i have no heat... im thinking its the control unit i have to change .

i think the heat control in this is electric and a little motor moves the damper open and closed you can check the two motors but its probable the heat control unit check and see if you have power going to heat unit

2004 Honda pilot no rear air

The rear heat and and air will,only work if the front heat or air is on too. Place the front vent selector on the icon for feet and top vents.
The rear console has its own blower too, check the fuse for it.
good luck

I have the light up opn the dashboard illuminating the words C.DIFF LOCK what does it mean??

That means that the center differential is locked, making it 4-wheel drive, but restricting the tightness of turns that it can take. You should not operate it on dry pavement or above 45mpg in C DIFF LOCK mode or it could damage the car.
To turn it off, drive it to a level spot, stop, and press the button to turn it off. Drive a few feet forward and wait for the tone to go off. If necessary, put it in revers, drive backward a few feet and then go forward. That should turn the tone off and the light.

Dash illumination

I believe there should a dash light type bulb that goes in to the heater control head. You'll need to take out the control head away from the dash, to get to the bulb, I believe it's a twist out type holder with a removable bulb.

Range Rover P38A 2.5 DSE 1999 - 4 way TC light keeps blinking!

i have had this a couple of times, when they have diff trouble etc i take them to a place covered in shingle on concrete. when i figure of eight them around so everything is working hard i can detect which diff or what ever is wrong.
now when u do this for a certain amount of time, (some differ) u have to understand what happens, when round a roundabout, the wheels closer to the roundabout are turning slower, outter wheels faster as they have further to travel, this abs traction control are programmed to see it.
when u figure of 8 it gets mixed up, i have had three now had them reset and bingo. I know your abs sensors are fine as light goes like u said. the most expensive bits are working.
also i would like to add, i changed a battery on 1, the owner claimed the same prob. u have to bear in mind she could be pulling a fast 1. anyway i had it reset at my own expense as could not reason with hear, it was cured.
so there is other things there somewhere that up sets it, if u keep on figuring 8 it this does.
