[DML] Re: New Owner Questions



The high pitch whining could also be your fan blower motor (controlling the AC and heated air flow through your vents), which is just under the glove compartment. It is accessible from there and easily replaced.  Does the sound appear or change pitch when you change your fan settings? I had this problem, where it seemed like the motor bearings were whining.

If the brake and clutch fluid is over 2 years old flush and replace that too. Have the coolant tested for Ph and strength. If it is older than 4 years it should be flushed out and replaced.

I assumed it had something to do with the air conditioning, but the noise is there whenever the car is running regardless of the air conditioning or heat being on and off.  Any idea what it could be?  Is it serious?

I tried to start the car, and it looks like the 15 minutes of headlight usage drained enough power from the battery to prevent me starting the car again.  Is this normal?  I actually was able to jump start the engine with the Wagan Easy Quick Jumper (a cigarette lighter to cigarette lighter jumper device, which I had bought "just in case" and was shocked actually worked), which I assume is safe for the car (or at least safer than a normal jump start).
