The dome light may stay on due to a faulty door jamb switch which will require replacement.
The spot welds on the hood striker may be misaligned causing the hood not to latch properly. The correction is to install oversize washers under striker mounting bolts to secure the striker.
Erratic fuel gauge readings may be caused by additives in the fuel. Our technicians tell us an improved fuel tank sender unit is available to correct this concern.
The airbag light may illuminate due to damaged wires under the drivers and/or passenger front seat. Damaged wires should be repaired and properly secured to correct this issue.
The engine may be difficult to start in cold weather or at high altitude. Our technicians tell us there is a powertrain control module (PCM) software up grade which may help with these issues.
An oil leak may develop form the right front axle seal. Our technicians tell us a revised axle seal is available to correct this concern.
stuck in park. i was able to shift the car manually at the transmission. hit the release [ inside the console] and the lever moves but does not shift. can't find a manual for the car hope some one else has had the problem and can help.
Transmission is failing to shift betw. 3 and 4 gear, engine light is on and the dtc is P0783. Now I took the car with me to S. America before this and now no one knows here what to do....
A condition may develop where the accelerator pedal sticks and is not smooth. This can be caused by carbon build up on the throttle shaft or throttle body cleaner was used which removed the special coating on the throttle shaft. Our technicians tell us that if this is the case the throttle body should be replaced.
A hard starting condition may be due to low fuel pressure. Our technicians tell us the powertrain control module (PCM) should energize the fuel pump for 2 seconds when the ignition is turned on in order to properly pressurize the fuel system. Correcting this condition may require updating the PCM software.
An engine vacuum leak from the throttle-body base gasket may result in a rough idle and/or stumble on acceleration. If this occurs, replacement of the failed gasket will be necessary.
Our technicians tell us these vehicles are sensitive to fuel quality. Using fuel of marginal quality can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light with misfire or oxygen sensor fault codes stored.
