#66 of 76 ELECTRICAL/WINDOW/BLINKER PROBLEMS
Dec 12, 2011 (4:26 pm)
Hi Everyone! I own a 2000 MC SS, that I LOVE, and am having ELECTRICAL/WINDOW/BLINKER Issues with it. I just happened to come upon this site today, and LOVE IT! Have not had a chance to read all the post yet. I decided to post my issues on here, so here goes. The Turn Signal works when it gets ready. Sometimes I turn them on and in a instant they go off and will not come back on until they decide to. I just read a post that this could be a Hazard Switch issue, and will try suggested fix of working with the hazard switch, when this happens next time. My drivers window switch stopped working so window is permanently up (started by the auto down not working sometimes). It does NOT ever come down on its own. Now my passenger window will not work from either switch. That window, however; once in a while it will come down on its own, not sure if it is off track, or what. My heater will only work on high setting, (fan/motor replaced one time, did not help). A/C will not work AT ALL. It's cold here in VA, so not really a big deal, just hate to keep my heater on high all the time when in use. Hey, don't get me wrong I'm happy that it at least works....I am a widow and have no one to go with me or give me any suggestions as to what to do, or what to believe when I take it in for repairs. Thanks for any help/support any of you knowlegdeable gentlemen/ladies can give me would be GREATLY APPRECIATED! Sorry for such a long post, but I have so many issues.

I still have a problem with turn signals, but have learned to live with.it. I know my problem is the hazard switch, but don't want to tear the dash apart until I really have to. Yours sounds like it may be in the turn signal assembly somehow. Wish I had more for you, but this is the first I've heard of this problem. Someone, somewhere has got an answer, hope to hear about it soon. I'll be checking in.

I'll be seeing my Son this weekend, will ask if he'd run into this problem, or knew of it. He buys and sells cars all the time. Will post if I come up with something

That sounds great thanks, Also I have heard of the sockets in the head and tail lights going bad and melting cuz they burn so hot but I checked mine and they seem to be fine but they are definitely burning hot ... It doesnt take long to tear apart the dash I think you should try getting a turn signal flasher and see if that fixes your problem I bought mine at Oreillys for $30
#73 of 76 2000 Monte Carlo ss Wiring an Gas gauge
Nov 01, 2012 (1:20 pm)
I have a 2000 Monte Carlo ss. I first got the car this year about 6 months from a freind. Only Paid $1000 for it. The guy i got it from told me that the gas gauge does not work. So i was going by how many gallons i have been using from the overhead area. Well now recently that to went out. It use to work just fine when it was hot outside an hot in my car. Now its getting cold out an it does not work at all. Sometimes when i keep my A/C unit on on 3 it would come on now it does not come on at all. Would anyone have a legitimate answer on how to solve that promblem?
Next problem is my gas gauge. I did Notice today that when i put gas in it (20 bucks for 6 gallons). It kinda worked as in it was floating around 3/4 marker. which i know is not right because my gas light came on. I did learn when my gas light comes on i have 4 gallons of gas left in my car. I know this from when keeping gas in my an keeping track of the gallons used an also running out of gas a few times. This promblem needs to be fixed asap an i do not know where to start? Do i start with the gas sensor or is it my Speed gauge Unit? I dont know much about cars for wiring part at least. Any Help would be awesome.
For those of you that have problems with your blinker. My car does the same thing they go out when they want to. All i can say that i have been told by many people is that it is a bad Ground. If my blinkers do not work i repeatedly keep pushing my hazard lights till it stop buzzing an they work just fine.
If someone one has an answer to the two problems above if you would so kindly send me an email at ( tallie942gmail.com ) to let me know with the tittle Monte Carlo solutions.
I would greatly appreciate it.

I know my buddys Monte carlo had a button on the floor that you would have to step on to dim the or brighten the lights i thought it was a cool feature.
Have you tried pulling the blinker handle towards you or pushed it towards the dash?
Let me know if i was able to help you.
