Question Answered: how can I turn off the srs light of my toyota solara 2000 model

Remove the bulb from the instrument panel. First, remove decorative cover bolts. Then remove bolts for instrument panel and lower steering wheel adjuster. Then wiggle panel out and remove wire harnesses and remove panel to get at bulb. Then remove it and reverse procedure to put panel back. Well, this is 1 way. LOL!
Question Answered: My Automatic Gear lights on the shift console are not illuminating.

This is a burnt out bulb almost guaranteed. You have to remove the instrument panel to get to it which is about 4 bolts. Then wiggle panel out past steering wheel (lower the steering wheel first) and remove rear wire harnesses. You almost always have another bulb that will match this one in the panel. Switch them and see if it lights the automatic gear display. If this works, you usually have to get this bulb from the dealer as autopart stores don't carry these very often. Cost: $3 to $10 depending on the bulb.

Depends what mounts are used and who is doing it. If you are expect about $40 to $60 per mount for the part. If its going to a shop add the parts plus their labor.
Question Answered: Cabin heater not working.

You have a blender vent under the dash and if broke it can get stuck in one position which is the A/C. Also, check the heater core to see if there is a buildup of debris which can impede air being drawn across it.

Question Answered: My Car makes a squeeking noise every time I turn left. What is this?

Check you power steering fluid level and fill if needed. Your brake pads or rotor may be causing this as well.
Question Answered: What do I have to do to change the spark plugs?
December 20, 2011, 06:08 PM
On this model, you will probably have to loosen the front motor mount and then slide the motor toward the radiator. Careful not to hit the radiator. This will give the extra space to get to the 3 rear plugs and then just push motor back into place and reattach motor mount.
Question Answered: The turn signals have started to work intermittently.
December 20, 2011, 05:56 PM
It could be the turn signal combination switch. You need to disconnect your battery ground. Then, take off the lower and upper steering column covers. Locate the electrical connector behind the combo. switch and disconnect. Remove the screws that hold the switch in place on the adapter collar on the steering column. Take the switch off the collar. Put new switch on the adapter collar and reverse process. Reconnect ground to battery wait about 3 minutes and then try the turn signals. Hope this helps.
Question Answered: Our windows have excessive fogging, after driving and car is warmed up.
December 20, 2011, 12:24 AM
Do you have a sweet kind of funny smell in the car? (like the smell of coolant) It is possible the heater core is starting to leak which would cause this sort of fogging on the window.
