#782 of 1043 1993 Chevy Suburban dome lights
Feb 02, 2008 (11:06 am)
Just bought a 1993 chevy burb. The dome lights do not work. The lights under the hood, the dash lights, and the door lights that light up the window buttons work also. I have checked the fuses, and they all seem to be fine. I do not want to go to a dealer or a mechanic. I want to fix myself. Can anyone help me. Also, on a side note, when I drive the burb, she runs great and drives great. The thing is is that when I go to stop the rear end makes a noise like something is loose. What could that be. I would appreciate any help possible.

I have a 3 suburban i just bought. All the gauges worked well, and read normal. Today I went and sprayed out the engine compartment because of all the dust from living in the mojave desert. Now my gas gauge is not reading right, my mph speedometer bounces like crazy, and when i am in park and hit the electric door lock button, my speedometer jumps also, and my headlights flicker. Anyone got any solutions to fix this problem. HELP ME!!!
#784 of 1043 1986 suburban front brakes pull?
Feb 04, 2008 (5:24 am)
replaced the rotors, calipers and pads and still pulls to the left.
when i jack it up and test the wheels they both seem to lock at
the same time and they release just fine when letting off the peddle.
the only things left to change would be the rubber hoses and the valve
any help would be great? I need to add that this all started after a panic
stop while pulling a loaded car trailer.

it's the rubber hose from the frame to the caliper. it deteriorates on the inside. replace both.

Sounds to me like you have water in some parts of the electrical system that controls the above-mentioned functions. Get an air hose and blow out the entire engine compartment and around all the electrical boxes, connections, etc. If that doesn't do it you should head for a competent auto electrical shop and have them check it out.

it sounds like you have a loose terminal problem....it must have came lose when you tried to jump the vehicle. make sure you tighten the screws on the clamp real good with a small wrench or key. good luck

try this !!! check your battery terminals. make sure both clamps are connected to the terminal really tight. use a small wrench to tighten it and make sure there are no crystalline buildup. good luck

get a volt meter and test to see if the line to the fuse is live or not. check your rear brakes and all the parts around the wheel hubs.

check the idler arm or the ball joint. this could affect steering alot. especially when you pull a load, there is tounge weigh which lift up the frontend....hence it put alot of wear and tear on the steering mechanisms and that can cause uneven steering. good luck

you need to bring it in to an oil change outfit. for around $89 they will perform a fluid exchange from a 100 gallon container while the engine is running and the transmission is in park position. This is the only way to flush out transmission fluid in the torque converter. good luck.
