Question Answered: 

This wiper set up on your vehicle is different than most. It has a wiper motor, linkage and a pivot assm. Usually if you can hear and see a slight movement it is that the motor is working but restricted by a seized pivot assm. Sometimes you can remove, clean corrosion (aluminum oxidation) and lubricate and get working. other times it is too deteriorated and needs to be replaced. Also be warned that the wiper motor has been "stressed" by this restriction in movement and can become damaged. If it is still working after freed up it may have a reduced life due to the stress and die out soon after. This can all be evaluated by a qualified technician. If you have any further questions feel free to stop by and have it professionally inspected. Sincerely, Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Question Answered: 

All of the reply's are accurate. Your fuel tank sender may not be reading 100% accurate, but is close enough. You never want to run your tank too low anyway as the gas in the tank also acts keeps your fuel pump cool and lubricated, when you run your tanks close to empty and there is not enough fuel to help perform those functions helps in the premature failure of fuel pumps. I don't think that you currently have a problem, but run your tank consistently below 5 gallons and you soon may! As always, any further questions please feel free to call or stop by.

Question Answered: 

Pushrod is right on, if that does not fix it and the latch just seems to be no "latching" it could be a internal latch failure, or the linkage that goes to the latch from the handle or lock actuator has become stiff or seized and holding the latch in the "open" position. If that is the case you would need to have the interior panel removed to gain access to all the linkage. There are alot of special fasteners, unless you have the special pry tools you may want to leave this to the professionals to help prevent damage to the interior panel occurring. If you have any questions please feel free to to call or stop by. Your Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Question Answered: 

If all of those electrical components cut out at the same time it has to be something that supplies power to all of them. If you checked fuses and they were good, it could be a relay, electrical connection, or a computer module fault or failure. That vehicle communicates on a CAN bus, if anything fails on the bus, it can sometimes take down a portion, or the whole thing. You will need a diagnosis by a professional repair center to figure that one out. They will also need to have the ability to re- flash / program control units as well.

Question Answered: 

Line replacement can be a tricky item to quote as they are for the most part all custom made. It also depends on where to and from you are replacing the lines. Some times you can patch a section in, others you need to replace from source to destination. It is best to have someone who is familiar with the repair to visually inspect and give you a proper quote rather than a guesstimate. Let us know if we can be of further help. -Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Question Answered: 

Your leak could be coming from the water pump, or the timing cover. I would recommend to have the cooling system pressure tested by a professional service center to locate the exact source and advise on repairs needed. Please let us know if you need any assistance. -Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500

Question Answered: 

Usually when the blower does not work on high it is a faulty blower switch. Though it is merely a guess, the better thing to do would be to inspect the power coming out of the switch and the blower resistor to see what the exact reason is. Somewhere there is a loss of voltage causing your problem. High speed sometimes has it's own circuit and protection. Feel free to stop by for assistance if needed. -Curt's Service Team 248-545-0500
