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

When not properly torqued, the rear track bar can make noise.
If you experience delayed or loss of gear engagement after initial startup, the transmission may require removal and disassembly.
If a shudder is felt while turning the vehicle at low speeds, replacing the power steering hoses with revised hoses may be necessary. Also consider installing a finned power steering cooler.
The brake/transmission shift interlock (BTSI) may make it difficult to select a gear from "Park." Be sure the brake is pressed before shifting out of "Park."
If the horn starts honking and the parking lights flash as if the alarm has been set off—and the vehicle is not equipped with the security system—reprogramming the front control module (FCM) with new software typically solves the problem.
If power mode closes the lift gate—but does not open it—the power lift gate (PLG) module might need a software update.
If the hood of the vehicle is rattling, revised hood hinge bushings are available.
If the keyless entry remote is inoperative or working intermittently, a new remote transmitter may be needed. The new remote will need to be programmed to the vehicle.
Problems with the wiper parking circuit or wiper motor can cause the windshield wipers not to stop in the proper position.
A loose timing chain on early models will produce a rattle (in the front of the engine) because the chain hits the guide. The timing chain should be replaced (the cam sprocket should always be replaced at the same time). Remove and discard the timing chain guide; on later V6 models, the guide has been eliminated.
If the rear wiper self-activates while driving, the rear wiper module (located in the lift gate) should be replaced.
The auxiliary heater hose connections (that are routed to the rear heater under the vehicle) can develop coolant leaks.
The power vent window actuators may separate at the ball and socket joint. To fix the problem, replace the power vent window actuator socket on the rear quarter glass assembly.
Backlight (rear window) water leaks are common. Conduct a water test to verify the location of the leak. The lift gate trim should be removed and the glass resealed from inside.
