Known Problems

An overheated wire in the head light harness can cause the low beams not to work. Replacing combination light/turn signal switch switch, the wire for the low beams, and the combination switch connector (if damaged) should repair this issue.

On certain models a leaking side marker light wire harness can cause a water leak inside the vehicle. Resealing the wire harness where it goes through the body into the cabin area should stop the leak.

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

The exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve) can fail, resulting in the illumination of the Check Engine Light.

Carbon build up on the throttle body can cause a sticking throttle. Cleaning the throttle body will commonly repair this issue.
