his post HARNESS PINCH not Rust.
and was from bad service. bad service has infinite effects. (random too) this is how to start the diagnosis and save vast time) the answer is BOOKS.
heck im on the wrong forum. have no idea how I bled over (must have been and email invite?)
yes, GM dropped GEO to CHEVY.
its the wiki GEO page. arcane but true.
if you need the schematics for your car just ask
will send via PM.
but i need the full spec?
and door counts? 2wd, and 4wd, would help too, if valid.
the schematics are all different !
and DRL do you have DRL
with this information comes real drawings.
sorry im on the wrong forum. ( have a 04 chev tracker so know it too)
and a full FSM (bought day 2)
i can assure you, with a real FSM , electric fails are 10 times easier, for sure.
the FSM even has the harness color break outs and connectors fully identified and exact locations
, and amazing fact. this alone saves 10 hrs labor.
volume 2 , section, lighting systems.
50 schematic pages
(real suzuki) (i will PDF them this week)
case in point.:
page 9A-41 is HL (STUCK ON)
here is the cheat
No DRL?, page 41,
pull E17 connector to THE combo switch ,
if HL turn off , the comb is bad, if not short is forward. (pull the upstream conns, and ring it out (continuity and shorts)
---------------------< or >-------------------------------------------
DRL page 42,
do the same, if lamps stay on (pull E17) ok still on.
pull DRL E24 conn,.
if lamps still on, short is on red/white line from DRL to Combo
if not ? on, put back the DLR E24 , back stuck on. again.
pull Autolght controller G34 , conn.
if you unplug this Sun detector unit and is
still on?, you have a bad wire from G34 to E24
goes out? , bad sun detector. stuck to NIGHT.
this assumes you know how the DRL works,? on mine they work different than any pre 99.
even the hand brake effect is different.
Dont feel bad , i hate DRL too, mines defeated, with a switch, (me , and next owner) i flip the switch if i sell the car. cost $1
all that?, with the DMM meter in tool box.
if you have the book ,you find the connectors in 5min,not 10 hrs. ouch
also can open paths and check continuity and ground outs on that same set of wires.
BTW2 my public lib. has access to mitchells for free, so all the above, is free, .... check it out.
be proactive buy the book or cd when you buy the car, then when it breaks, the books saves 100s to 1000s of bucks.
or saves you.
