    Long time lurker first time poster HELP! plz! Wife let it rain in my car, now drivers

    Side door doesn't work, it has dried out for weeks now and nothing. No power window, door, mirror, heated seat, all of it is out. I pulled both fuses (that took a while to figure out) I took it in to get the oil changed and tires rotated and the Midas shop wanted $700.00 for a new switch they said the dealer had to program it?



    ----------

    I hope that I am giving enough details, and if anyone has an IT related problem I can help in return.. I would like to know what I should do? Or, if someone knows what part I need if I can replace it to save money.. ?

    TIA

    Dan

    Your door control module is at fault. If it has to be replaced, a dealer has to program the new one to your car. I would start by removing the door panel and seeing what you can find. The parts should all be weather proof so something else may be at work.

    Dan, before you do that, get the DTCs read and report back. There may be something else afoot.

    Thanks again for all of the help.

    Most auto parts stores will read the codes for you free of charge.

    Those parts jockey scanners can only indicate a check engine light code. Your problem needs a scanner which is able to read body and chasis codes.

    You would think that since they sell scanners that can read B, C and U codes as well as P codes that they would use one of those.. oh well, live and learn.

    I'm 90% sure the best scanner advance sells can only read the PCM(or ECM/TCM) and the abs.

    Still doesn't help him.

    I wanted to post an update on here, thank you again for all of your help and comments. I went to an old friends house this weekend who informed me that a mutual friend is the service manager at a local Caddy dealership! I stopped by there today, but he was out to lunch. Called him afterwards and he agreed to look at it for me, promised to give me a deal, and a good OEM part! I just have to get it over there and leave it a while.

    Will report back what happens.

    thanks!!
