Cooling fan relay would be a good starting place.

You can pull the fuse to the wiper for now till you get it repaired. The common problem is the solder where the wire harness connects to the wiper motor goes bad. You can go to Auto Zone and replace the circuit board to the wiper module or you can save some money if you have a solder gun and some solder. The clip on the circuit board where the wire harness connects to is where it goes bad. Next time your wiper gives you problem, give the wire harness a light tap with the end of a screw driver and see if it stops or starts up. There was a recall on the wiper circuit board a while back, not sure buy you may be lucky if the dealer still has the recall active and it will not coast you anything. Good luck and hope this help's, the other thing would be the wiper switch is worn and needs to be replaced.

Check that your vehicle battery is in good health and fully charged. Also check battery connections are clean and secure, as well as earth points. Check also that your alternator is working as expected. The connectors to the computer are a good tight fit.

No, corrosion will not cause a battery to drain, even if the corrosion is on the terminals. Several factors can cause battery drain, I would first have the battery tested to see if the battery it self is not bad. If the battery is good, then the most common is a short. All most all new cars have a certain amount of drain,(measured in milivolts) this drain is for clocks and computer memory's, and it would take several days of a vehicle sitting for the battery to be drained. Don't immediately assume you have a problem if you see 2-6 milivolts of drain on a battery with the key out, now if your battery is being drained after being parked over night, you have a problem. The easiest way to pin down the problem short is to disconnect your positive battery cable from the battery, take a 12 volt test light and clamp one end to the positive cable, and hold the probe to the positive post. Now if you have a short the light will come on. Have someone help you by pulling the fuses one at a time. If when a fuse is pulled the light goes out you have isolated the short to that system. If you pulled all the fuses and the light never went out try disconnecting all the wires from the alternator, 9 times outta 10 do this will let you know where your short is. If the system is not critical like power locks some people just leave the fuse out.

There are severat things that might cause this problem. First thing I would check is if maybe that you knocked the starter solenoid wire loose. This would be the smaller of the two wires going to the starter. The second thisn that I would check is the starter it's self. If you have gotten water in the starter you could have coroded the brushes that are in the starter motor, or coroded the contacts in the starter motor solenoid. The third and least likely possiabality is that the starter is loose and the electricity can't complete its path because of corosion and bad connection to ground.

Don't know that much about these but depending on where you bought ur tires they might service them for free, I know places like big o and discount both service tires for free. My guess would be that the batteries just need changed since they're supposed to last ten years and the car is 11 yrs old.

Dealer labor will be about 88-105 bucks an hr plus a diagnosis charge prob about 40 to 65 bucks, at least it is at my Chevy dealership, you can get a hand held code reader at auto zone which you plug into the cars computer and it will tell you what caused the light to come on, I think those are 30 or 40 bucks

Apply vacuum to the black/purple vacuum sorce line that is located under the glove box. if the Vent controls work properly then the problem is between the vacuum source and where the vacuum enters the cabin.

The Vacuum tank is located under the battery , but it has to be accessed by removing the RF wheel and the body panel behind the wheel, then you have to take out the computer. Battery acid wrecks havoc in this area, look for broken or disintigrated lines or bad vacuum switch or tank.

Does the second remote work?  Have you changed the battery and then done any reset required by the manual?  Ten year old batteries are probably shot.

This is a malfunction with the climate control switch. The switch is electronic and will need to be replaced.
