The snowflake-like icon on panel flashes continually whether or not I have the blower motor on. Some heat comes thru vent when my speed is up to 60mph, but warm air is not being blown...EEC? Motor? Codes? I wish I knew where to start looking because I'd like to try and fix it myself. Any suggestions?
The lights just stopped working without apparent cause. No clue what to do but can't afford to have it repaired. Any suggestions?

Is their a terminal for #5s coil ?on the power stage if so how do I check that particular one.
How do you connect up the wiring for the mirror?
Is it ok just to not connect it?
Cannot see way to get old ones off--do not want to break the clips holding them on.
Headlights do not come on--other lights front and rear seem fine. Fuses checked--and are OK.
Have looked around and see there is a relay, or possibly a switch at fault.
Any idea on prices for either of these jobs?
Would love to fix it myself having just paid $860 for front suspension work!
As always I really appreciate your feedback and advice.
Not done transmission for 40K and wonder if I should try it myself. Am not a great mechanic.
Following recent repair mechanic placed air pump/cooling fan relay on top of the battery--where it now sits??? I find this odd.
The relay is now making a high-pitched whining sound nearly all the time.
Does this mean I need to replace it? Where should it go?
What could be causing the motor to do this/
..960. Cost $1600!
Have now driven ab. 300 miles and still 4 things on the test gauge show up negative. Mechanic keeps telling me it's because it's a European car. Is this true?
When i reach over 60 mph it acts like its down shifting or trying to change gears. it is really rough like a jerking of the car. As soon as you go below 60 it stops
