My 06 Grand Prix DIC is reading hood ajar. I took

My 06 Grand Prix DIC is reading hood ajar. I took a peek and the hood latch connector was disconnected to the connector below it which I believe runs to the DIC. The problem is that the hood latch connector is a 3 pin male and the other is a 2 pin female . The part numbers are both pa6-gb20-gf10. Is there an adaptor somewhere that I can buy? I have an extra 2 pin male here that connects to the 2 pin female but I believe(not sure) the currently attached male connector is attached to the hood latch and would require replacing the whole unit. If there is a way to replace the male connectors or if there is an adapter that I can buy, it would save me a trip to the dealer. Thanks

SOURCE: Door Latch has broken plastic tab

The door latch assembly comes as one piece. It would actually be much simpler to purchase the new latch and replace the whole assembly instead of trying to put pieces and parts back inside a latch that may or may not work after all your hard effort. If you decide to replace the latch, follow these steps: 1. Unplug the machine. 2. Remove the lower kick plate panel if you like (this can help you reach the latch from a couple of different angles). 3. Open door and feel around the rubber door boot for a wire hoop. At the bottom of the door open is a tension spring. Pull the spring apart and remove the wire hoop from the groove. 4. Gently lift the rubber boot from the groove around the door opening and push inside the machine so you can access the inside of the casing. 5. The door latch assembly is located inside the case on the right-hand side. There should be a couple of wire connectors going to it (remember how they come off). Be careful with the wires, they are small and can break. 6. Unplug the wire connectors and remove the three screws holding the latch in place from the outside of the casing. 7. There should also be a plastic retainer holding the latch in place. Remove latch from retainer. 8. Install new door latch by placing it in the plastic retainer, first. 9. Plug wires connectors in. 10. Re-install the three door latch screws. 11. Re-install rubber door boot around the door opening. Make sure it is properly seated in the groove. 12. Reinsert wire hoop. starting at the top of the door opening, carefully push the wire hoop into the groove and work your way all the way around the bottom where the tension spring would be. (A second set of hands to hold the wire hoop in replace would be handy at this point). 13. Pull tension spring apart and snap into groove. Done. Hopefully this will take care of your problems. Of course, you may not like the idea of having to purchase a whole new door latch assembly, or the effort required to remove and replace. But, it sure beats trying to rebuild the old one. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: F05 Error Code on Kenmore Elite HE3T Washer Model 11044932200

First of all, make sure you unplug the washer before making any measures, and make sure you unplug any connectors from the CCU, so you aren't reading parallel paths. Isolate the components you wish to test from the CCU or you may get inaccurate readings.

The reading across the heating element terminal should read 15 ohms. Make sure you aren't grounding your probe against the case, or you will get improper readings.

The NTC will read approximately what you have at room temperature. Was the connector plugged in before you began troubleshooting? A common problem is the connector falling off and generating the error code.

As far as the connector plug on the CCU is concerned, plug layouts can differ between models. Make sure you have the correct connector plug to the NTC. You may have to hand over hand it to find it. Unplug the connector at the CCU and leave it plugged in to the NTC. Perform a resistance check across the PLUG terminals. You should get the same readings as you mentioned before if the plug and wires are good. This not checks the resistance of the NTC, but also proves continuity of the wires.

Doublecheck your readings and let me know what you have. I would like to rule out a CCU problem. It is not common for this error code. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Water leaks/pours out

Step 1: Remove the front panel of the wash basin
Step 2: See if the clear tube in the left hand side of the basin is disconnected - this will take all of the over-fill water and pour right onto the floor. This happens if the wash cycle becomes too aggressive.
Step 3. Reconnect the clear hose and use a BINDER CLIP (same as you'd use on a stack of papers) to secure the hose and keep this from happening again.

Reach out to me if this doesn't resolve your problem.
Thanks, Chringram

How to diagnose which door is causing the door ajar warning on dic for 08 pontiac g6 4cyl 4dr

It should tell you which one .
Driver Door Ajar Malfunction
Passenger Door Ajar Malfunction
If not a scan tool would be the best way.
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Driver Door Ajar Sw parameter while opening and closing the driver door. The parameter should change between Door Closed and Door Ajar
? If the parameter does not change, refer to Driver Door Ajar Malfunction.
With the passenger doors closed, observe the scan tool Door Ajar Switch parameter while opening and closing each door. The parameter should change between Door Closed and Door Ajar.
? If the parameter does not change, refer to Passenger Door Ajar Malfunction

Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the driver door latch.
Test for less than 5 ohms between the ground circuit terminal 8 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the ground circuit for an open/high resistance.
Ignition ON, verify the scan tool Driver Door Ajar Sw parameter is Door Closed.
? If not the specified value, test the signal circuit terminal 6 for a short to ground. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
Install a 3A fused jumper wire between the signal circuit terminal 6 and the ground circuit terminal 8. Verify the scan tool Driver Door Ajar Sw parameter is Door Ajar.
? If not the specified value, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
If all circuits test normal, test or replace the driver door latch

How do I find door switch on 1995 Bonneville?

hi -door ajar switch is built into the door latch inside the door. The latch latches to the B pillar. It may be this switch or a wiring problem, or a bad drivers door module (DDM). Remove the inside door trim and check the wiring and connectors. The wires from the door switch are tan and gray/black and run to the 8 pin connector of the drivers door module. By peeling back the plastic shield, you can get to the wires for the door ajar switch at the latch. Disconnect the 4 pin connector at the latch. Test the radio now to see if it shuts off. If it does, the door ajar switch is bad.

1999 pontiac grand prix gt dual climate control not working prope

The sensor is located near the hood latch area in front of the radiator. If the temp is reading incorrectly, chances are it is defective. You can purchase a new one, they relativly inexpensive.
Disconnect the electrical connector then remove the sensor.
Good luck, let me know.

Climate controls are now in Celsius. HELP

On your DIC (driver information center) to the left you will see 3 buttons arranged vertically.
The ENG/MET button is used to switch between english and metric. Push that button until all displays are in english, that should return your climate control to fahrenheit.

Once you have completed that, push and hold the "reset" button down for 2 seconds ( button just below the ENG/MET button). That should reset you DIC to the default brightness as well as your other displays.

Give it a try and let me know.
