#35 of 78 Window Problems and AC problems
Jul 14, 2010 (9:51 am)
I have a 2000 Monte Carlo. My first issue would be my windows. Drivers side stopped working in December, had the switch replaced. Since then 3 more replaced. Just left it and used my passenger side, dont smoke so no big deal. Passenger went out last week. Took it into my hometowns dealership (ford not chevrolet) they couldnt help. I assume its a wiring issue but dont want to be told the run around by a dealership. Second is my air... been checked for a leak 3 times... nothing was found, recharging lasts 1-3 days. Black car black leather, absolutely awful to drive in 80-100 degree weather... CAN ANYONE HELP ME???????

I had this same problem not too long ago with my 95 monte carlo. what you want to check is to see if the fuse is getting the power. for my car it was the driver side fuse box under the hood. fuse #5 for parking lps and headlight switch. the wires were just old and had to replace the wires for that fuse. they work now.

I dont know if I'm replying to the right person, but will continue anyway. I have a 2000 monty with the same problems the turn signals work and don't work when ever they decide, the the cruise was intermittent for a week or so, now doesn't work at all, the fan settings 1 thru 5 totally do not work now. they would cut out once in a while for the past week then just quit. this is not good as it is very HOT in Az. anyway my question was did replacing some control panel solve your problem??
at least I know it's not an isolated problem, looks like quite a few have this.

I have a 2001 MC SS the blower motor for the fan would not work all the time , cruise control would not work, overhead info center also would not work then just come on by them selves. after researching for a while i had the ignition switch replaced by the GM people and all is well since. if you need more info please ask Thanks Ralph.

Thanks for the quick response, I believe I read somewhere someone else fixed they're problem with an ignition switch. how many other parts had you replaced before the fix? Just wondering. thanks again for the reply, will post again when I get this problem fixed......
#40 of 78 iginition switch did it

Replace the ignition switch and the cruise and blower is working just fine. Now on to the turn signal problem, they work, then they don't, never know till you turn them on. I have heard the hazard switch could be the culprit. anyone else heard this? it's a dealer item, approx. 50 bucks.............
#41 of 78 Front wheel bearing installation.
Aug 31, 2010 (6:57 pm)
I don't know why aftermarket wheel bearings on my 97 Monte Carlo only last about 10,000 miles. The original bearings lasted 12 years/150,000 miles. Is it my installation technique or the quality of aftermarket bearings? I torque them to factory specs. and still no luck.

#43 of 78 '97 Monte Carlo Hazard Switch removal
Sep 13, 2010 (2:38 pm)
I was wondering if anyone can give me instructions on how to remove the hazard switch on a '97 Monte Carlo (my son just bought, its his first car) . There are no screws under the steering column behind the steering wheel so I know you can't remove the cover that way, the cover looks to be 1 piece and I'm guessing you have to remove the steering wheel(which has the airbag and I've never dealt with that before- don't want that to go off if I'm messing with it!!) and slide the cover off, after somehow removing the ignition key cylinder. The hole for the hazard switch is on top of the steering column, towards the right(passenger) side, just in front of the ignition key cylinder. I've seen all the electrical problems posted here, I just hope he doesn't start having all those problems. Thanks in advance for any and all help, its much appereciated.
#44 of 78 Heat/AC Controlhead problem
Sep 22, 2010 (11:38 am)
I have a 2007 Monte LT, when I use the environmental control system, for say the blower at your feet, face or defrost. The unit doe's the opposite of what you want. Defrost is the vent or at your face, foot and face is defrost, and face is at your feet. Do I need to have something reset? I did disconnect the battery, that didn't do it. Or do I need to bit the bullet and pay the dealer 110bucks to reset it. Help :cry
