    Blinker Buzz!

    Just in the last couple of days I am getting this buzzing sound when I switch on my right blinker. When it buzzes, the blinker won't work. I traced the buzz to a square yellow box under the steering column just above where you plug your code reader in. It has wires going into it. Can someone...

    '96 Washer Pump Relay Info

    For those interested I finally fixed my front washer pump. It was a ground wire & the plug going into the pump. I just hooked the ground wire to the side wall and wired in 2 cheap connectors to the washer pump (the plug costs $51 dollars at Autozone!). That blew my mind. I have diagrams below...

    Multi Function Switch

    How do yo get in there and bend a stalk on the multi function switch? My front washer pump unit (blades do) does not work and I want to see if that is the problem. If it isn't, it's gotta be a pump replacement. Checked relays in aux relay and pulled both of them and my wipers up front still...

    Washer Pump

    I'm trying to figure out a problem with my front washer. My rear washer works fine. Squirts great. My front won't do a thing when I press the button, just the wipers work.

    The Lights Stay On!

    Okay guys, here's a easy one that I can't figure out. My indoor lights (both dome lights and door lights) won't go out when all doors are closed.

I think it is an aftermarket product and when I looked it up on a thread, my pad did not match any on the page. The pad on my key ring is rectangular with two buttons with a small light in between where it...
