Re: Electric Windows

The window switches are working again. The problem seems to be intermittent and I'm having trouble finding the cause. I did not know there were multiple fuses. I'll check those next time the window stops using. Thanks All.

Electric Windows

The front passenger and both rear passenger windows (3 total) only work from the master driver control switches. The individual switches located on the front passenger door and both rear doors will not open or close the windows. I've checked the fuse and it is ok. Looking for some hints as I continu...

Re: A/C Compressor going bad

The AC compressor in my 2005 Freestyle is failing. The estimate I got from the dealer to replace it and related components was in the $1300 to $1900 range. I'm postponing the service for now as winter is approaching, but I have some questions... Can this be a DIY job? Does anyone have a recommendati...

Re: DIY maintenance manual

Thanks for your comments. I am glad to hear that these are well built vehicles and will probably pick up something on eBay. I am very happy with my purchase thus far. Our first family long road trip in our Freestyle is next month.

DIY maintenance manual

I recently purchased a 2005 Freestyle with 87000 miles on it. I understand that there is no Haynes/Chiltons manual for the Freestyle. Can anyone recommend an alternative manual? I do some of my own maintenance and like to be knowledgeable on what my mechanic is doing. I do use the internet and Youtu...

Re: Just got a 2005 FS

Hi, I also just purchased a 2005 Freestyle with 87000 miles. I joined this forum to keep up to date with what is going on with the Freestyle as I want mine to last a long time. This is my first car with a CVT and it wasn't until after my purchase that I learned of the potential problems with a CVT. ...
