Re: radiator fan not coming on

One question to two owners with same problem. Where did the foam come from? I can understand one incident, but two? Sounds suspicious.

Re: Bad CVT What Are My Options?

Let me jump in here for a moment. What did they charge you for this? If they charged you nothing then they did nothing, except listen and poke around. To even start opening a tranny like this costs a lot of money in labor. So unless they have nothing to do, they can't afford to work for nothing. As ...

Re: ABS, Traction control, Brake lights ON; no speed; data e

Why are you paying for parts and labor that didn't fix the problem? They are supposed to be professionals and that is why people seek their services. Anyone can play the guessing game which my run into thousands and not fix the problem. No fix, no pay. Take parts out cancel the labor. They should ha...

I now have 146000 km or about 90720miles on my 05 Freestyle Sel AWD purchasd new in Dec. 2004. The most major repair was lower right control arm, rear wheel hubs and front and rear links. Other than that the car has been trouble free.

Re: Traction Control

Traction control works only when needed, so no need to turn it off.

Re: power chair carrier

I have a Hidden Hitch (trade name) with a 2" receiver which I would recommend (much more stable than the 1 1/4") I carry a lawn mower, 8HP snow blower and other things in my home- made hitch haul which is rated for 500lbs. I think your power chair (I assume it is like a motorized wheel chair) would ...

Re: Air bag idiot light causes the idiot light to light

That idiot light may have been telling someone that the air bag was not operational.

Re: My initiative to make my freestyle...different

Are those two green lights in the middle fog lights? or what? Regardless of what they are, they are illegal, at least in some parts of the world like Saskatchewan, Canada. Lights of blue, green, purple or other derivatives are not permitted on a vehicle. I had my registration cancelled because of a ...

Ihutch13, do you know for sure that the tranny wasn't replaced/repaired somewhere along the way? Possibly enen on warranty? If you do, then that is great.

Re: Electronics issue

Chaimav you could check the plug-ins for the airbags under the front seats to make sure they are securely plugged in. Mine worked loose because of back seat passenger feet and things under seats. That was my problem with the airbag light staying on.

Re: 2007 Freestyle Windshield Washer Wire Diagram

There is only one washer pump for both front and rear. (99% sure). It should be located below the reservoir. You likely have to remove the reservoir to get to the pump. Clean the contacts on the pump and wire. Also check screen to make sure it is clean. If that doesn't fix it, you likely need a new ...
