Known Problems

A yellow anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light may remain illuminated. If a wheel speed sensor fault is discovered, sensor connectors should be inspected. Damaged or spread terminals must be repaired or replaced.

When braking during low speeds (under 10 MPH), the brake pedal may vibrate and the ABS hydraulic unit may cause a rumbling noise. This is caused by a momentary loss of the wheel speed signal to the ABS controller. Adjusting or replacing the wheel speed sensor will commonly fix this problem.

The rear lift gate support (prop) attaching bolts may break, causing the lift gate to fall unexpectedly. Thorough inspection of the bolts is required; if the support washers are loose, the supports need to be replaced.

The speedometer may become inoperative due to a failed vehicle speed sensor (VSS), . A failed sensor will require replacement.

Sometimes the vent windows' latch can pop open; if it will not stay closed or rattles, the latch assembly should be replaced.

A problem with the sliding door track and door stops can allow the door to slide out of the track and fall off the vehicle. This is more common when doors are opened fast and allowed to hit the stops with a lot of force.

Triggered by a short in the rear wiper motor/circuit (which causes a fuse to blow), the airbag warning light can illuminate erroneously.

Carbon buildup on the top of the piston is common. As the buildup increases with mileage and over time, symptoms vary from light ticking, to ticking/hammering, to hammering/knocking noises. Fuel injector cleaner often solves the problem.

A refrigerant leak at the rear AC expansion valve and/or AC evaporator seals may cause the rear AC not to work.

A loosening (or loss) of the nut retaining the engine cooling module fan can cause a vibration. If not addressed promptly, the fan blade may not turn, causing the engine to overheat. A revised engine cooling module fan retaining nut kit has been released.

Timing cover oil and coolant leaks and front crankshaft oil seal leaks are common on high-mileage vehicles. Always replace the timing chain and cam sprocket at the same time.

Often when replacing the front left wheel speed sensor, the wrong part is used (it's from a later model year). If the wrong sensor is used, it can damage the wheel speed sensor wiring.

An intermittent loss of speed control can happen soon after the transaxle input or output speed sensor has been replaced. The problem is most likely caused by bad connectors.

An improperly-seated connection on the starter (coming from the battery) may cause the engine not to crank. Plastic must be ground off the cable terminal so it can sit flat and flush.
Due to corrosion at the pivot, the driver side window wiper may fail. The pivot must be replaced.
