You will need to purchase a separate module that will allow the factory options that originally are routed through the radio to still work. Believe it or not, many GM vehicles will not start with the factory radio removed unless the separate emulator installed.

based on what you say here i suspect maybe theres an open in the tps. you can test it with an ohmeter if you have one. some scanners will even show what its doing.

remove the dash clean the connectors and refit, sounds like its become un-seated on the connection, if you push on the dash and see if it comes to life again or parts come back then this is the fault, other fault can be the board on the back of the dash, damp etc can cause electrical problems, it may need drying, and you can re seal the board with nail varnish clear but you will need to re-solder all the connections back on first then use the varnish, the varnish should last years longer than the flaky stuff they use from new, just make sure its dry before plugging back in to the vehicle.

Joe it is common for the brakes to moan when they wear down and sometimes they will squeak, try replacing the front pads and lubing the shafts on the calipers install anti squeal on the back of the pads, the ABS device would not cause noise as they are just a ring with a magnet and the reluctor ring spins and the magnet detects the spinning of the reluctor ring, they don't even touch and are stationary in place where they are mounted. There is a possibility that the brake fluid is dirty and could cause the abs motor to groan but you would just have to flush the system, When you don't put your foot in it on the brakes it will make some noise even new, I have a 2008 ford ranger that makes the same noise and the brakes are fine. You will have to adjust your braking habits to stop the noise. You can change the pads and that will help but not for long, be sure when you are operating your brakes press firmly on the pedal until you stop. If the brakes make noise after you let up on the pedal then the caliper parts need to be cleaned and lubed, however it is not a safety issue.

Install a meter in series with the neg battery cable. After all modules go to sleep your drain amount should be 50milliamps or less. Trick all doors into thinking they are closed by tripping the latches manually so the vehicle remains asleep while you have access to the interior. Pull ALL fuses and breakers 1 at a time until you see the meter read close to the given spec. This will disclose the circuit that the draw is coming from and let you see the actual amount of the draw live as you are investigating.

Vacuum leak, tear in the air duct between the MAF and throttle body. Have it scanned to see what the fuel trims show. A vacuum leak will cause the PCM to add more fuel to correct a lean condition. That'll cause misfires and load the converter, causing it to melt down and restrict exhaust. Sound like you're throwing parts at it instead of diagnosing the problem

Check the power steering fluid level. Left is torque side and probably tightens the belt as right it would loosen the belt a little so check the belt for sloppyness too. Hope this helps, The Raz

Trying to understand from what you wrote..It sounds like something is not recirculating correctly.I would change out the thermostat first because it's the cheapest thing you can do..It might be getting stuck...not opening normal..When you said you turned on the heater and no hot air.. there's a hose right there at the thermostat that runs to your heater core usually under your glove box..If your not getting hot air then the water is not recirculating through your heater core..it could be a valve that is stuck when selecting heat that's not working also.. Flush your radiator..Open the radiator cap only after car motor has cooled down..Drain the radiator...There's a small turn valve nut at the bottom of it..Watch what comes out..is the water rusty color especially as it slows down from draining...They make radiator flush.. Also you can buy a thermostat that opens sooner...Like if yours is 180...you can buy one that opens at 160..A lot of cars are missing the black spoilers under the car that help push air up to keep motor cool..Make sure your water pump is good..Cat converter is not clogged in front of muffler...It will make you car run hot if it's getting clogged...Also Find out where your losing coolant...I've seen on holes in the heater core that leek from where your AC condensed water drips out..It will fool you and loose about a cup of water.. Smell the water your loosing also....if it's dripping from where the AC water is and you smell coolant...You have a bad heating core

Retrofitting HIDs into halogen headlight assemblies is ******* and my look bright to you, but they actually cast less light on the road because the reflector isn't designed to focus an HID tube. Their designed to focus a filament.
