#1360 of 1371 Re: 1999 Leganza Brake Lights [andy_in_az]

Is it possible you installed a switch that is not good? It happens. I purchased a MAP sensor once that looked new, but someone had taken it out of a car and returned it to O'Reilly for refund (they do that for shops) and it went back into circulation and of course, I got it.
I would use a volt-ohm meter to check for continuity in both the old and the new switch. Inexpensive volt-ohm meters cost so little that everyone should have one and learn how to use it.
I see no adjustment in the switch; it is a simple switch that should close contacts when it is out.
Do the back-up lights work? If they do, then the ground is probably good, but I would check for a solid ground (Black wire), anyway. The rear window stop lamp has its own ground. Does it work? If it does, that would lead to suspecting the brake light ground.
The ground for the brake lamps is below the tail lamp on the driver's side, in the trunk.
The ground for the window center stop lamp is under the front driver's seat.
I hope this helps. If it doesn't, please post again.

#1363 of 1371 Re: Oil In Coolant - 2000 Daewoo Leganza [daewooowner1]

Yikes, when I bought a Nubira, the coolant cap was clicking and not coming loose, and neither my mechanic or I thought to undue a radiator hose, shame on both of us!! I think the seller snookered me! After I bought the car and another mechanic broke the cap off, there was oil in coolant!! Head gasket didn't fix it, mechanic said it probably got over heated and there was a crack in the block so we got a junkyard engine. Also for daewoo owners, nubira, watch for that water pump bypass hose leaking, it appears to be the water pump leaking but its just a hose. Avai in Puerto Rico via a supplier or the local guys have a J shaped hose that will fit. Starter goes about 90,000 miles on the 2 liter nubira, it starts turning over slowly b4 it goes.
#1364 of 1371 bad fuel pump
Feb 21, 2013 (10:07 pm)
hard starting, cranking 3 times to start, engine lite finally came on---
1. shows problem with coil--changed
2. problem with O2 in block--- changed.
3. did a fuel pressure check on original pump--- replaced with new fuel pump
3000 miles later had same problems did a fuel pump pressure test again and it would not hold pressure.
upon removing 3000 mile pump it was hot to the touch so it must have burnt out.
just installed another new one (12000 miles/ 1 year warantee)
QUESTION will it happen again or is there still something wrong
#1365 of 1371 2001 Daewoo Leganza right turn signal stays on
Apr 22, 2013 (9:11 am)
My right turn signal (not always) stays on. I press lock/unlock on the remote several times and it turns off just to come back on; at no scheduled time of course. At the same time the temp gauge went up to over 3/4 on the dial when it usually shows below 1/2. I was using the Cruise Control at the time and was traveling around 70 MPH on the highway. I don't know if this helps, but also the alarm goes off by a simple 10 MPH spring breeze as well. Like I said I don't know if they are all related. Just do not want to leave a single description out in order to fully diagnose/solve the issue. Ever since the issue with the temp gauge, that particular issue has not returned. The right turn signal light issue has reoccured one other time. I have a minor length trip planned in one week so I need help with this soon please. Any questions on this please ask. To not leave anything out: When the turn signal thing happens, all the lights involved with the right side directional stay on when it happens. I replaced the right rear directional bulb but the problem persisted. I changed the 15A fuse as well. The old fuse wasn't even blown. Thank you
#1367 of 1371 Daewoo Nubira 2001 issues!
Sep 16, 2013 (11:00 am)
I have a 2001 Daewoo Nubira SE. 136,000 miles on it. Slowly falling apart. Recently it has had problems starting, basically just in the mornings. Granted I live in Arizona so the cold usually isn't an issue but it starts up just fine later in the day. So the problem is that is tries to start in the morning and takes about 30 minutes to start up. Did a code test and three codes popped up. O2 censor, tranny, and a code that I wasn't familiar with. Ended up being another sensor. Replaced the cam shaft censor. However up until last week the car wasn't doing this... Anyone having any issues like this? takes this long to start up in the morning? its usually 95 in the morning here.

I own a 99 leganza since new. had the problem of hard starting in the mornings in las vegas and had the same o2 message. once started it ran well all day except in the hi temps(110+degrees). I figured it had to be fuel problem and replaced the o2, fuel injectors, plugs, fuel pump, gas filter, disconnecting the fuel lines and blowing it out. After complete disgust, why I don't know, I took apart the fuel rail(it feeds the injectors) and found it clogged. With the money spent already I cleaned it out and put it back in(as long as it didn't leak) and now it starts as the starter hits the flywheel. this had been done May and its now Sept and starts all the time GOOD LUCK

I am having the same problems with my 2000 daewoo nubira with not starting only in the mornings sometimes. I can eventually get it to start after 30-45 minutes of trying. Can you tell me where the fuel rail is located? And how I would go about cleaning it out? Thanks!
