Same post again? Look at two AC pipes entering heater box. One is low side (large) and one is high side (smaller). Disconnect the high side pipe union and inside the pie going into heater box is the orifice tube.

Did the mirror have a temperature read out before?All you should have to do is hook up the mirror to the connector and everything should work.There aren`t any separate hook ups.

Do not drive the truck until the issue is resolved.

1. Make sure the oil is at the proper level in the engine with the correct spec oil for the pickup. Oh it is normal for the oil pressure to be a little low at idle and go up to the normal range as the engine rpm goes up to normal operating range.

2. It could be either a real problem or a problem with the oil pressure indicator. To verify which connect a mechanical test pressure gauge of the proper range say a 0-100 psig scale to the point where the oil pressure sensor is connected. After it is connected test run the engine for a short period. If the pressure shows normal replace the oil pressure sensor. If the gauge confirms the low oil pressure then you have a serious issue in the engine. It could be:

1. Bad oil pump or oil pressure relief valve

2. excessive clearance in the bearings due to high miles.

There are many things that can cause you problem. The flashing light indicates "open loop" or "limp mode". This is the computer's last effort to keep the vehicle running and maintenance must be performed ASAP. I can assure you that if you are in limp mode there WILL be some code(s) set in the computer. Have them read and repair accordingly.

Possible weak spark from ignition coil or low fuel pressure due to weak pump. Try spraying carb clean into intake throttle body when problem is present. If vehicle will start and run with a little spray then fuel pump is failing.

take the six bed bolt loose and then take three buddies slide the bed back put in the new pump slide it back n place and put the bed bolts back in. if u drop the tank u can easily break the hard plastis lines that go to the fuel tank. u only have to take the fill lines and taillight wires loose this way its alot quicker, and easier.

Can you jumper the starter solenoid terminals to make it crank ?
Is the security light staying on or blinking ? Did you try cranking it in neutral instead of park ?

yes but it is soldered to the board so you would have to disassemble the cluster to do so ,not very difficult to do just make sure to ground yourself so no static is discharged from your body

Rotate the headlight switch (knob) all the way to both ends. The dome lights should come on at the very end of travel in one direction or the other.

Mine is a V8 and I have no idea what could be the problem. I would start by checking the plug wiring.

I had the same problem and replaced both calipers with no change, I figured it was the master cylinder. When I pulled off the master cylinder I saw the vacume booster had about 2 cups of brake fluid in it which leaked from the front of the master cylinder. I replaced master cylinder and vacume booster and brakes work great now.

Remove the bezel covering it. Just pops off. Takes a 40 or 45 torx it to remove the bolts.
