#1765 of 3856 Where is the resister?
Apr 29, 2005 (7:38 am)
My blower on my heater/AC stopped working on 1 2 3 . I called a garage, and they said it could be the resistor. I had a hard time finding all the fuse boxes and checking them. Now does anyone know where the resistor is in a 1999 Toyota Corolla and is it easy for me to replace it myself, if I am not too familiar with repairs? What # is the part? I hear horror stories that may have to take the glove box out or the dash apart. I tried the Owners manual, couldn't find it. Is it in there?

Not a fuse, it would of been too easy. Does anyone know where the resistor is located? Is it easy to replace myself, with limited knowledge? Please don't tell me that I have to remove the glove box or dash.

I have a 2004 Corolla with OEM GoodYear Integrity tires. At 23500 kms (17687 miles) the tire is at 7/32, just above the acceptable level. Have not experienced other problems so far, but the edge of the tire is almost bald and will have them replaced very soon - the replacement will not be GoodYear.

If the edges are badly worn at 17k, you've got a suspension/alignment problem. Don't be too quick to blame the tires.

A disengaged gear in a manual trans is illegal-I think. The saftey issue is that once it is coasting in neutual in perhaps a downhill situation it will become impossible to reengage into gear for control and stopping. The solution for that if it occurs is to increast rpm like 1200 by steeping on the gas so that the trans can go in gear easier. One could engage a 5sp transmission this way without using the clutch at all. I personally, would rather replace brakes pads (orgainic only! never semi-metallic) than replace a clutch and/or the transmission due to downshifting wear. That doesn't include the increase wear to the engine while each downshift increases gas consumption/idle. Go figure? what to do?

You could check out the "forks" this is located and bolted on the transmission with a tube going into it. when you step on the pedel it compresses clutch fluid to a mini-hydralic stem-the size of a pen cap. This provides the transmission for engagement. Put the vehicle e-brake on. Have someone you trust depress the clutch while you are underneath the car to locate the noise. I'm probally wrong, but it might help you narrow down the problem. The forks cost appox 20 bucks.

Not sure if this will help, but I installed a single CD player on my 1990 Acura a few years ago, and one of the features is a security "key", which is a CD that I programmed into it so that if the battery is disconnected somehow (through repairs, or theft attempt), the radio/CD player is rendered useless unless the person inserts that key CD. Because I'm getting ready to trade it in, I made sure to reprogram the security key with a CD that I don't want to keep, so that I can include it with the car when I get rid of it.
Sounds like something similar is happening with your system. Did you get any documentation with the car regarding the radio/cassette player? If not, maybe you can contact the radio dealer to see if there's a way around it.
#1774 of 3856 Car slip on a slope
May 01, 2005 (1:34 pm)
I recenty bought a 2005 corolla. I had parked my car on a slope today. I found out that as soon as I started the car and took my foot off the brake, it moved backwards. I don't think I ever experienced that with a Toyota Camry I had prior to this car, so I am not sure if there is a problem with my new car. I would appreciate any ideas on this. Thanks.
