Question Asked: 

My reverse lights quit turning on and I cant find why. I have checked the fuses, replaced the bulbs and still nothing. I know a netral safety switch controls this but I cant find anything on where it is or what it looks like. Any ideas

Question Asked: 

When I push the button to turn off TCS nothing happens. I suppose the switch is bad. is there a way to just disable it completely without using a tuner. I don't want the crap at all, its dangerous.

Question Asked: 

My cavalier constantly thumps the brakes. I had the front brakes replaced rotors and all. Also had the rear brakes replaced about a year ago. This thumping is coming from the front. It gets better for a little while after I replace the brakes but goes back to thumping about two weeks later. I dont ride my brakes either. Is this calipers or the master cylinder or what. I dont want to start replacing stuff without a little insight. Thanks

Question Asked: 

This Buick randomly decides when it does and does not want to start. It seems to be getting spark. it gets fuel, I tested that by pushing the pin on the fuel rail. It does it spiratically and there doesn't seem to be any pattern to what I do as to when it doesn't start. I took it to a shop and he said that he couldn't say for sure what was wrong unless it acts up when he can put a computer on it. Any ideas?

Question Answered: 

Both of those codes have something to do with the tranny. the p0700 is a transmission control system malfunction, or TCM. The p2767 is a speed control module malfunction. They more likely than not could be linked since the speed sensor is in the tranny, which would cause the control system malfunction code if the sensor is bad. Unfortunately the nest way to tell is have a professional with a scanner that can communicate with the TCM and pull the codes on that to see what the real problem is. Is the speedo working right?

Question Answered: 

Take it up to oreillys and have them clear the code. Its free and they can also pull current codes as well. I do it all the time. They actually just hand me the scanner when I ask for it when I walk in now. I think auto zone does it too but not sure. Don't have one of those near by

Question Asked: 

Somehow either the hose leading to the rear glass has broken or become disconnected, not sure which because I cant find any way to get to it. I know the leak is in the fender area somewhere but the only way I can find to get to it is by taking off the plastic in the wheel well, an di really don't want to do that if I don't have to. Any way I can get to it from under the hood or anywhere else that any of you guys know of? thanks for your help.

How in depth is the replacement of that on this for a guy with common mechanics tools, nothing fancy like hoists or lifts or anything. an dhow long do you think it would take. Thanks
