If you really want an intake that will likely survive deep water, you're going to need something more like: However... Is the height of the bottom of the chassis the maximum height I can drive through without hydrolocking? (This question is bordering on offtopic, sorry!) Would I hydrolock, even though the intake is really high? You might ...

See if this picture helps you. Keep in mind most manufactures only use one main harness regardless of the accessories. So even if you don't have heated seats, or traction control the connectors and the harness are already there. Also here is the pin-out for the traction control switch Look on the inside of the drivers door for a label that looks like ...

More than likely the resultant issue is a fried fusible link which attaches the ignition to the starter or the starter relay which would do the same. This probably would not have killed the starter. This is the reason for the relays/fusible links in the first place. Since you didn't put down the model or year of the Jeep, it is a little hard to help you with ...

You could use electrical tape to accomplish this, but the better way to do it would be to individually replace the broken wire portions using lengths of wire, solder, and heat shrink. This would be the safer, longer lasting solution. It's a lot of work, but well worth it in the end. The only issue would be the color coding of the wire, though black heat ...

Im not an expert, so take my advice with a grain of salt, but I think I can tackle this question: Possibly, but not likely. When you attach the wrong cables to the wrong nodes on a battery, it results in a very high current flow to the battery with a lower charge. The fuses in your fuse box are designed to burn out and break in the event of high surge of ...

I'm pretty sure the electronics on your wiper motor has gone bad (or is going bad). The switch in the cockpit is there to instruct the wiper electronics what your intention is. When you turn the wiper on, it commands the motor to do its thing. If the wipers are coming on of their own volition, it's because the electronics are telling the motor to come on. ...

It's C1311 for the power steering pressure sensor.

The fact that this is intermittent and that multiple windows are failing leads me to believe this is a break in the wiring inside the 'flex tube' between the door and the vehicle body. After thousands (if not millions) of times being bent back and forth with door openings, wire(s) inside the tube break. Closing/opening the door readjusts the break so ...

Bear in mind that unless you were to get out and measure the height of the water, you won't know how deep it is. Furthermore, as you drive into the water you will create a bow wave so the actual water level may change and still cause water to be sucked into the engine. You also risk wetting the coil pack which would stop your engine running and potentially ...

The culprit is probably a sticky or malfunctioning Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Lucky for you it is located right on top and connected to the throttle body. You can try taking it off and cleaning it, making sure not to play with the pintle (plunger) itself, as the gears inside which actuate it can easily be broken/stripped. Use some carburetor cleaner both ...

actually you will read only the first 2 digits from this code "G5B6882230170" first digit means the month starting with A -> January and ending with L or M (as some of the manufacturers omit the letter I) for December and the second one "5" is the year of production.

On most cars, the immobiliser is difficult to remove/disable, as it is integrated into other systems on the car. For example, on my 2000 Opel, the immobiliser is linked to the ECU, which means the ECU would need reprogramming to remove. I would suggest going to the dealership, and bringing proof of ownership. They can then order in a new key and lock set ...

It sounds as though you have either a faulty ignition switch or a break in your excitor cable somewhere (the small wire that goes live when you turn the key). I had the exact same issue on my Volkswagen Bora and traced it back to the wire, around 3 inches from the point it connects to the starter. It made a tight bend back on itself and the heat of the ...

If one connects a strong battery to a vehicle's electrical system with reversed polarity, nearly-unlimited current will flow through the alternator until it blows a fuse or fusible link, melts a wire or diode, or does something else catastrophic. Reverse-connecting a strong battery to a nearly-depleted battery that was itself connected properly would do ...

I believe there are too many variables to say for sure. It would depend on how long everything was connected incorrectly, how much damage the fire did along with what circuits were involved. Circuits that are not normally related to the starting or charging systems may have been damaged by the fire or by feeding power thru the ground side of the circuit. I ...

When the wipers turn on do they always turn on at the same rate? try changing the intermittent speed level if so equipped.

Do you have a wiring diagram for the car? A Haynes manual or similar would have one - then you can try and identify the wires by the colour codes. Also, it might be a silly question, but do you actually remember disconnecting it from something when you removed the console? It might be for something that isn't actually fitted to your car, as manufacturers ...

I think this diagram will help. This is for a Pantera, but it is a Veglia gauge. Don't pay any attention to the colors they mention, but everything else should be golden for you.

I think it's solved: fuel injector relay. It died on me again. Again the dealer couldn't find a problem. When I came to pick it up, the lot attendant drove it up to the office from the parking lot where it had been sitting in the hot sun. When I went out to drive away, it wouldn't start. Went back to the service manager, who tried it, then called over a ...
