I am getting a high pitch whistling noise that starts above 40mph by the driver's side window. It sounds like a window leak, so i placed electrical tape over the top of the window glass and closed it, then drove to 40mph, but the noise is still there...any ideas? Also, the care does have a moonroof, but the sound doesn't appear to be coming from that ...
The air will not blow, the dash controls work and you can increase the fan speed on the dash but it will not blow the air.I have checked the fuse box under the engine at the drivers side. The 10 amp fuse is good. The steering controls still change the temp and the speed but nothing coming out of the vents.
All electrical windows will go up and down as designed, except drivers window started messing up about 6 month's ago. The last time I put it down. I had to beat on the door while pressing the electrical button to get it to run back up. I haven't tried it since, beause I'm afraid it will not go back up. Could that be due to a blown fuse or a more costly part ...
My driver's side door is making a "popping" noise when I open it.
My Pontiac Sunfire makes a static sound when I start it when it is cold outside - sounds like it is coming from the air vent on the driver's side - heater is fine - no lights coming on - no problem running - just when I start the car - Could this be a belt or the radio?
