    I have been getting Interstate "Blems" for many years. And, I get a larger than necessary size. The cost varies, but the last ones I got at the outlet in Norfolk, VA were about $55.00 per battery.

    key opens door but does not turn off alarm

    After looking up alarm issues I discovered I should have done some research before posting... It looks like there are some good posts on fixing the switches and solder joints that frequently fail on the door lock modules...

    key opens door but does not turn off alarm

    Shucks.... for a while my key has not opened the door automatically, but the key would open the door and deactivate the alarm. This afternoon, the key opened the door, but when I opened the back door the alarm sounded and using the key in the door or the ignition did not deactivate the alarm...

    Rear Brake Line Question

    Well... I probably should be a little embarrassed.... the garbled lines are the hand brake lines. I ordered new ones and removed the old ones tonight. I also replace the calipers. I am wondering?? should I lube the pins or trust that the rebuilt ones were done correctly?

    Brake Question - How to remove washers on the intake line?

    I replaced my calipers and they came with new copper washers, but I couldn't get the old washers off the top and bottom of the bolt that fastens the line to the caliper. Is there a trick to getting them off? They look to be the original aluminum washers. One of the lines is leaking slightly...

    Rear Brake Line Question

    Thanks Millerman61... I have the metalnerd tool and have done this a few times... the pads..that is. Mystery solved. It turns out the pins on the right side were frozen in. I am not sure how that happened as the boots are good... but... it is what it is. I ordered a new mounting...

    Rear Brake Line Question

    Hello all, Time for maintenance again. I noticed the right rear pads were very worn versus the left side. The tire folks suggested a stuck caliper. When I talked with the parts store, the guy asked if the brake lines were cracked or torn. I looked at them, and both sides have the outer...

    Air Conditioner Stopped then started

    I do not know if this is a contributor to the problem... but I am pretty sure my temp sensor is not working correctly. Would/could this keep the fans from running?

    Air Conditioner Stopped then started

    After examining the fuse holders above the battery, the left most 30A fuse was burnt and the holder looked a little melted as well. I cleaned the fuse, but was not really able to get into the female holder part to clean it... so I ordered a new holder from autohaus for $33. After cleaning the...

    sigh... ok... when it says to check voltage across a fuse... sorry if this sounds ignorant.. but I guess I am :)... I take the fuse out, put the voltage meter with red on one side and black on the other? Should the car be running or just switch turned on?

    update: thermoswitch disconnected and fans are still running. Am I now going to have to follow the guide about electrical debugging? I checked fuse 25... it is not broken.

    Air Conditioner Stopped then started

    Thanks... this is sounding complicated to figure out. while I am trying to trace the electrical, will it cause any damage to drive the car, with the fans running on high?

    Air Conditioner Stopped then started

    Well... I disconnected the high pressure switch... at least I think that is what it is... it is next to the firewall, passenger side, next to an a/c valve. It has three connectors inside. The fans are still running when the ignition is on but motor is not running. AC is off and inside fan...

    Hello Dan, I read all your docs... Thank you very much. They were a real help to check the fans. Now I need to unplug the high pressure switch. Is there a trick to how it is attached or how to unplug it? If after unplugging the fans stop.. then I guess it needs replacing? How does it come...
