A moaning or fog horn sound may be heard while turning at a slow speed. Installing a finned power steering cooler will help alleviate the problem, but it may be necessary to replace the power steering rack.
Under heavy acceleration in temperatures above 80° F, an engine spark knock can be heard. The powertrain control module should be replaced.
A failing head lamp switch can cause the head lamps and/or instrument cluster lighting to flicker or dim. The head lamp switch should have a noticeable click between each position; a "mushy" feel is a strong indication of a failing switch.
If the HVAC (heater) housing is not properly sealed at the bulkhead (firewall), water can leak into the passenger compartment. Foam sealant should be used to seal any gaps and the evaporator drain tube can be modified to prevent further water entry.
Due to a lack of lubrication, the AC compressor can fail. The AC compressor warranty was extended to seven years or 70,000 miles.
A malfunctioning switch in the steering column can cause the front windshield wipers to self-activate or not turn off. A failed windshield switch will require replacement.
