When you say "blink my lights", are you just turning on and off the lights at the combo switch, or are you going from low beam to high beam? Contacts within a switch can get dirty. Remove the cover from the steering column, and spray the inside of the offending switch with electrical contact cleaner. The preferred product by many on this board is Caig Deoxit. Contact cleaner is available at most any Radio Shack.chaosdrifter06 said:I've been driving my stanza lately and for the past 9 months its been here in New England, a few problems arose electrical wise:
The Right headlight refuses to turn on anymore. I tried replacing the bulb to no avail, even replacing the entire socket. But when I blink my lights the right one would eventually turn on. My guess is that it's the light switch itself. Anyone had this issue before? How hard is it to fix?
The next time it's on, get over to a parts place like Autozone or Advance Auto. Many parts places will let you borrow a code reader. After you get the code, research it. The solution could be as simple as getting a new gas cap.chaosdrifter06 said:My check engine light is constantly on, but occasionally shuts off. I've grown accustomed to ignoring it. I've replaced all the ignition wires, spark plugs, oil, air filter, radiator, etc. After that, the engine light is still on. I'm guessing bad o2 sensor or fuel temp guage?
Are there any hoses near that area? Where is the fuel filler. A problem with the fuel filler hose could also cause the check engine light to come on.chaosdrifter06 said:Occasionally my fuel tank would leak. It's not a hole in the actual tank I can already tell you that. When I park the car over the curb, it seems that the stress on the suspension would cause fuel to leak out. It would also leak on the occasional hard turn. A few drops once in a while. Cracked hose maybe? The leak originates near the left rear wheel, near the suspension.
