I'd say the TPS may be getting flaky

Well, I pulled the wheels this weekend and the pads still look like they
have some life left in them. I guess it was just a case of low fluid,
because I added some and the problem has gone away.

I had always been told that with any sensored brake system, as the pads wore
down, the fluid would drop an equal level. This meant that when the pads
where ready to be changed, the light would go on.

I was assuming this was true in all cases. Apparently it is not, or the
shop that did my brakes last did not reset the level to the proper level.
It was a Chevy dealer after all. (I bought it used, obviously)

Thanks for the advise.

Subject: Urethane vs Rubber

Its time to replace the body mount bushings on my '88 BII. What would
be the Pros/Cons of switching from rubber to urethane? Also, while I'm
at it, I'm probably going to stack an extra bushing on the tops of all
of the mounts to lift the truck an inch or so... Does anyone see any
problems with this?
Thanks!!

I have a 97 Explorer XLT with power windows and the one on the front
passenger side has decided to stop working. I pulled the inside panel off
and looked around but can't see any way to get the motor out. I removed a
nut and one bolt but it still seemed to be very solid. There are two bolts
that look like they are attached to the motor and I loosened these but still
no luck. What is the trick to getting it out? Any chance of a loose wire?
It wouldn't work from the passenger door controls about a week ago. I tried
the driver side control and it started working from both controls. That was
ok for a week and then it did it again. This time, it won't work from either
control. No noise or grinding. Just the clicking of the switch.
Any help or pointers to a web site with diagrams would be greatly
appreciated.

No, you REALLY don't have to have them. You can,
out of the goodness of your heart, decide that the
service is worth something to you and help cover the
bandwidth expense which is equivalent to a monthly
car payment. Or, another option is that I can shut
down the lists....

Ken
don't shut down the list. It was just a question.
I did not need my ass jumped.
I can find the door myself, thank you.

If worse comes to worse we could always rob a bank :)

But on a serious note, would it be possible to set a filter to remove 'old'
advertisements that you find in replies? No matter how many times you ask
it seems as though many people will not snip the junk. When you have a slow
connection like mine, it's aggravating to download 10K of text to find a
reply of "OK" in the message.

I haven't worked on this motor or window drive, only an older Mopar product,
but...from what you describe it would seem like the switch or connection where
the wires go through one switch and then to the other may be loose, open, broken
etc.

Easiest way to check might be with a voltmeter, looking for 12 volts to appear
between the motor feed and ground when it's supposed to be on.

If you don't have or can't borrow a meter, you could make a simple test light
from a 12 volt light bulb, such as a tail or marker light and two pieces of
wire. You can even use the unburnt half of an old stop/tail light for this.
