A defective thick film ignition (TFI) module can cause the engine to stall while driving, or the engine may not start. A failed TFI module will require replacement.

The rear wiper may stop working. This could be due to a rear wiper motor that has failed requiring replacement.

One or more of the door locks may become inoperative due to resistance in the circuit. In some cases, replacement of all actuators will be required to correct this issue.

If the Rear Anti-lock Brake System (RABS) light illuminates with no noticeable driving and stopping issues present, complete complex diagnosis must be performed, but most often the RABS control module has an internal fault and must be replaced. Replace the RABS module and recheck for proper operation.

A defective key-in warning chime switch can cause the ignition cylinder to bind from run to start and / or start to run movements. The key-in warning chime switch will need to be replaced.

Common sources of rear axle leaks are the rear differential cover seal, and / or the pinion seal. Reseal the rear differential cover with the appropriate sealant and / or replace pinion seal for leakage.
