A click heard when turning the steering wheel may be solved by aligning the steering column or installing revised steering column parts as necessary. Installing the revised parts will require removal of the steering column from the vehicle.
A rattle from the rear of the vehicle may indicate that the rear shock absorbers are defective. Updated shocks are available; however, careful inspection of all suspension components should be performed before any parts are replaced.
If the engine does not crank (or cranks but won't start), the wireless control module (WCM) may have locked up. This is due to static discharge through the ignition key. A revised model should be installed, but simply disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery for thirty seconds will temporarily reset the module so you can start the car.
A squeak heard while turning the steering wheel may indicate that the rubber boot seal on the steering shaft needs some trimming and lubrication.
The carpet under the right side of the dash may become wet with water. This can be caused by the AC evaporator drain being plugged with debris. Our technicians tell us that once the drain is clear, a cabin air filter should be installed to keep debris out.
Due to a problem with the rear drain, the sunroof may develop a leak into the passenger area. The drain tube can get kinked; tubing can be installed over the drain hose to prevent further problems.
When the outside temperature is above 90° F and the AC is running, a knocking noise from the engine compartment may be heard, especially when the vehicle is stopped or idling. This is commonly caused by a failing AC compressor assembly which will require replacement.
The remote start or keyless entry system may not function at times. A service repair kit is available which should correct this condition.
