yes the problem is under the horn pad where the carbon brush is ,it is not part of the airbag so its not a expensive repair ,disconnect battery and then remove the airbag to gain access to the nut that holds the steering wheel on ,then under that is a carbon brush that connects to the underside of the steering wheel ,something is wrong here thats all not a difficut thing to work out .If you do it yourself then make sure battery is disconnected ,you wear a crash helmet and the bodywork of the car is earthed to ground and no artificial type clothing that can build up static is worn only cotton .And not forgetting best of british ,but honest its not difficult to sort out

Sounds like your tail light fuse is blown. If there is no shorts in the system, replacing the fuse should solve the problem.

The ABS Active monitor comes on when one or more of the wheels are not spinning at the same rate of speed. The ABS system determines wheel "lock up" from the wheel speed sensors and will adjust brake pressure to unlock the skidding wheel(s). It achieves this operation with a pump which will rapidly pump the brakes to the specified wheel. I'm assuming this is the "pulsation" you are experiencing. If you are having this problem under light to moderate braking, be sure to have the proper size tires on all 4 wheels. Incorrect tire sizes and uneven tire wear will give improper wheel speed information the the ABS controller. This will result in a malfunction of the system.

Fan wires go to relay, than after relay, they go to engine temperature sensor located on the side of the block. There is another sensor usually attached to thermostat housing. This would be coolant temp sensor. You can test both sensors with an ohmmeter or multi-meter

I've diagnosed and repaired this problem twice on C5's. Both times I had to replace the wiper module (it's the printed circuit board mounted on the wiper motor).

Hello: You may have a bad sensor, the sensor is part of the valve steam. To determine which sensor may be bad you will have to have a scanner check your system. Most firestone?goodyear shops can do this or any GM dealer. After repair the system will have to be programed.
