Re: Problems many minor annoying ones
1. When turning or going over bumps car squeaks the noise seems to be coming from somewhere i nthe frotn of the car what could that be?
Could be struts or swaybar links. Try spraying WD-40 on one thing at a time, short drive, repeat until you find what stopped squeaking.
2. There is a gas smell in my car recently idk what is causing this but idid notice that the floor heating vents stay on when they are set off so heat is constantly coming into my car through floor vents. There are tiems when i fiddle with the controls i can get it to stop what causes that to happen?
Not sure about the gas smell. Do you have an exhaust leak? Poor mileage? Your vents sound like they're fine. Your ECC doesn't allow you to pick all modes. It decides where the air should go, in what it determines as the most efficient.
3.The buttons performance ride and touring ride can not be switched off i am not sure what they do exactly but it kinda bugs me that they can not be shut off.
Your CCR (computer command ride) has failed. It'* not worth of being repaired with CCR struts. And these could be your squeakers, too. There'* an article in Techinfo for retrieving codes, but most people here just write off the system due to the cost of CCR struts.
4. There is no light out in the back of my car but the computer tells me there is.
Which light does it say is out? Tails? Your license lights (2 of them) are also on that circuit. If that'* no the problem, remove and clean all taillight bulbs, clean the bases of the bulbs and the sockets, and re-install them. Don't forget the little dinky bulbs (194'*?).
5. The trunk release does nto work and thats one of the things i really want to fix does chilton'* repair manual explain how to fix the release?
Yes, but maybe not the electric release. Open the trunk and hit the button on your remote or the switch. Do you hear it trying to release? If so, it'* a mechanical mis-alignment causing it to bind. If you don't hear the trunk trying to release, do you hear the relay under the passenger side of the dash clicking? We need to know this.
6.Wheels...well i am assuming its the brakes squeak alot even when not applying brakes do i just need to apply soem of that anti-squeal rease stuff on the back of the pads?
Perhaps. Many people fail to put this on when doing their own brake job. Could also be cheap pads, or your pads are worn to the point that the squeaker device is beginning to hit the rotor.
