Re: 05 Freestyle dash cluster quit but all dash lights are illuminated

Yeah, the Freestyle is at EOL anymore and no one really comes here as they have moved on. I still come here though. :lol: Never [thankfully] dealt with your issue. I'm glad it was an easy and cheap [free] fix. I guess the next question to answer is how it got wet and tackle that issue so it doesn't ...

Re: who has the most miles ?

213,000 miles on our 07 Limited. Replaced AC compressor at around 200,000, which cured all the same AC issues of scroll valves, etc. Original CVT is just starting to be problematic (see my thread of Dec. 6th, titled 2007 Freestyle...OBD Code P0715...). Not sure what to do with that...anyone dealt w...

Re: who has the most miles ?

Hey all, I know I'm jumping on an old thread here, but I'm considering purchasing a 2005 freestyle sel as a back and forth to work car. (Approx 30 country / city miles per day) Pros, nice body ( for north Midwest rust), nice interior. Cons, 210,000 miles. Asking price is $2000, but I think I could ...

Re: who has the most miles ?

I do. Just bought my 05 Freestyle SEL 3 months ago 317449 miles. Bought at an auction for 300.00$. Working on issues. Misfire on cylinder 1. Changed all fluids top & bottom. Need to pull my diff sensor & clean it, traction control error. Most comfortable riding car I've ever owned. Hoping for 500K ...

Re: 2006 front wiper issue

Bad switch connection in the steering column would be my thought.

Re: CVT Issue When Cold

But then again, when it is cold out, I have my wife warm the car. We NEVER just get in and drive. I won't allow it. ;)

Re: CVT Issue When Cold

I have Valvoline CVT fluid in mine and it is fine in 28 degree [and lower] weather so I don't think that is your issue.

Re: Warning, or tip, for those changing coolant hoses

Anyone know what the horizontal T-shaped metal coolant tube is called, located behind radiator on bottom? Lower hoses attach to either side of it, and something like a flex tube coming up from the tee... This tube--obviously made of steel--rusted through, puking the coolant out. Overheated, and lef...

What do you mean "sputtering"? What is it doing [or not]?

What bolts did you use to replace and where did you locate them?
I believe they were M6 X 1. Got them at my local Ace hardware.
Cool, thanks! 8)

I would just ground the DVD wire and be done with it, myself. Take you probably 15 minutes total.

Re: Aftermarket radio/factory DvD

Get rid of the crappy Dual stereo, and go to a junkyard to find the stereo you need. Or you can pull the Dual (VERY easy) and ground the DVD wire and the DVD player 'should' then work for you.
