Problem with my 2007 Chevy equinox 6 cylinder. Dash lights = No Question = Where is the fuse for the 12V power accessory sockets located and what is it named . I think it blew because BOTH outlets have stopped working while I was using a 12 air compressor to inflate the tires!! It's not the compressor because it works in my truck's 12 socket.
Answer: The fuse for the accessory outlet and lighter are in the underhood fuse block. It is labeled AUX PWR. It is a 20 amp fuse.
Chevy Equinox 2007. The rear wiper motor runs with a grinding noise and no arm movement. Do they make a repair kit for this or just need to replace the motor and arm assembly ??? Thank you.
Answer: There is no repair kit. If the wiper motor is grinding, then it needs to be replaced. This is a common problem on the Equinox and Pontiac Torrent.
What normally happens is the motor locks up and does not work at all. Then when trying to turn it on or off, the motor continues to try and operate. It will get very hot and many times will cause a dead battery because it is still trying to operate. Even with the key off, the wiper motor is trying to go to the park position, so it kills the battery. Sometimes it will blow the fuse.
I would suggest replacing it as soon as possible before these problems happen. You will need to remove the rear trim panel, then the motor. There a 3 10mm bolts thatt hold it on. Remove the wiper arm and large center nut that connects the base of the arm to the outside of the rear gate, then the whole thing comes right out.
