#75 of 95 1992 GMC Safari XT
Nov 21, 2006 (10:38 am)
I have just aquired a 1992 GMC Safari Xt. When I turn on the interior light override switch to have the lights come on when I open the door, the interior lights stay on all the time. Is this correct or is there something else to it. I am single and really don't like getting into a dark van. Thanks in advance

ok, the override switch I ASSume your refering to allows you to turn the lights OFF when the doors are opened. Also, with the dimmer switch you can turn the lights ON by moving to the full on position. Perhaps you just need to adjust you dimmer one notch down.
#77 of 95 Cracked Cluster Panel

Got into my 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 this morning and noticed there was a crack just below the speedometer approx 1 inch long. Has anyone else had a problem like this? Only has 35,000 miles. Anyone know how big a job this will be to fix?
#78 of 95 Need help fixing gear shift!
Jul 26, 2007 (8:13 am)
Long story... make it short! Kids left console light on to my 1999 Honda Civic Coupe all night... battery died... had to move out of garage to jump it. You can't change the gear apparently without power. My husband slammed it into Neutral and NOW, it moves from all gears without having to hit the button. Since this is going on, the car keeps draining the battery because it doesn't know it's in Park! I have it taken apart already but I can't find how to get the gear shift back on track to fix this. I need this car to be drivable again. Can anyone help?!

Yeah he busted a little detent in there...the button should activate some kind of rod or lever that catches a notch. This could be tricky. We'd need to see a diagram of the lever mechanism.

I had problems with my car starting this morning unfortuanately and did not make it to work. It was not the security passlock issue but I did neet a new fuel pump and now it cranks right up. But the new issue is the panel lights wont go off, (brake, trac off, service engine soon lights). Does anyone know how to reset this panel or will i have to take it to the dealer and have them turn them off. They were not an issue before my cousin changed "only" the fuel pump with is located in the rear of the car. thanks for any help. Tried the reset button for resetting when oil light and tire pressure light come on, but that did not work.

I have a 2002 Cabrio - and the Airbag and brake light remain on - I have checked the brake fluid and the brake pads, but this light remains on when car is running. What could it be. Anyone out there can give me some suggestions.
thanks in advance
#84 of 95 '89 volvo speedometer and odometer
Jun 21, 2008 (8:46 am)
I've got an '89 Volvo in which, about two weeks ago the speedometer started flickering around wildly and then up and quit within a few hours. The odometer and trip odometer also went out simultaneously. I have removed the instrument cluster from the dash to check the connections and they all seemed fine with no corrosion. Put the dash back in, still nothing (didn't really expect much).
Other weird symptom/evidence: when it is raining out or the road surface is otherwise very wet, the speedometer and odometer will come on and work perfectly, until it dries out again. This suggests to me that there is an exposed connection somewhere that water will improve electrical connectivity on enough to make it work briefly. I don't really know anything about how the car is wired, though, and I have some wiring charts that I got from an online database but they are confusing and difficult to read.
Anyone have any thoughts or similar experiences?
