General consensus on the VR6 12V forum is to go with the OEM NGKs.
Yes, they are more expensive, but if you think you've got issues with the ones in the van now, why not go back to the "correct"...
Re: satellite antenna location
FYI, I've had good luck with a Weekender and full Camper by installing the satellite antenna on the metal roof, just under the front of the fiberglass/plastic...
Are you sure it isn't a bad starting battery? The immobilizer seems very susceptible to battery voltage. There should be a code stored if the immobilizer saw low voltage at startup time.
S14 (Fuse 14) protects both the ABS control module and the central locking system (door locks).
It sounds like you could have popped the fuse while working on the door harness.
Did you check...
You can buy aftermarket pulleys with bearings.
One example is here: http://www.germanautoparts.com/productdisplay/55825
I've used this style of filter on my 2003 EV since it was new.
Not sure of the function of the spike. The o-ring does not make a seal against anything when the filter is inserted, HOWEVER it can...
Just FYI, it is normal for the DRLs to go out when the parking brake handle is engaged (there's a switch at the parking brake handle).
Very timely postings. I think I've got a bad front right bearing...
Since there is a code set from the brake pedal switch, I'd replace that first. It's a cheap and easy fix, and I've done it on both my vans because of similar problems to those seen on your vehicle.
I would at least check the front ride height to see if it meets factory specs. The front torsion bars are pretty easy to adjust (extra-deep 27 mm socket and long handle and extension). The torsion...
The wire on the van, not on the pad.
My 2003 EVMV has a sensor in each pad (front and rear). The left front wiring harness was damaged by ice and snow, so I ended up permanently connecting the two wires to complete the circuit at that...
I thought the sensors were embedded in the pads, not available as separate items, so not sure I understand this statement.
Yes, you have ABS. Also check http://www.europarts-sd.com as a parts source.
Brake switch would be my first guess. Easy and cheap. Note: the brake lights working is not a good test, since there are multiple contacts in that switch.
Stock size on 01-03 EV was 225/60-16. I've used the original Michelin MXV4, Nokian WR-G2, Nokian eNTYRE and Hankook IPikes in that size (all are at least 102 load-rating). The eNTYREs are easily the...
I think you are visualizing the fastener incorrectly. There is a hexagonal recess inside the circle. A standard 6 mm hex key fits into this recess. It's a very common fastener type.
Sure looks like the normal socket head cap screw.
