Re: LW200 with Body Control Module problems

Re: New Thermostat Replacement, Still Only Running At 180 Degrees. Why ?!

Re: Key Won't Turn To Off Position At Times. Key Comes Out In Run.

I agree with LW. My son's L300 when we first bought it, had issues with the ignition and keys. We took it to the GM dealer. We had to have a new ignition cylinder and a new key. If I remember...

Re: L200 RPM Surge with A/C

Disconnecting the battery is important for many jobs, but I would not have thought it necessary changing something like the iac. For things like that, you'd simply unplug at the connector. If...
