ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

2/9/2011 - SUFFOLK, VA
2001 PONTIAC AZTEC. CONSUMER STATES THAT HE HAS SOME ELECTRICAL SAFETY ISSUES WITH HIS VEHICLE. HE HAS REPLACED THE HEADLAMP SWITCH ASSEMBLY, INSTRUMENT CONTROL ASSEMBLY, HVA TEMPERATURE CONTROL ASSEMBLY, FUEL PUMP MODULE ASSEMBLY AND TURN SIGNAL SWITCH ASSEMBLY. THE LIGHTS THAT ILLUMINATED THE ASSEMBLIES BURNED OUT AND THE CONSUMER WAS UNABLE TO SEE THE INSTRUMENT PANEL AT NIGHT. DUE TO THE SENDING UNIT MALFUNCTIONING, THE FUEL GAUGE WOULD NOT REGISTER THE AMOUNT OF FUEL REMAINING IN THE TANK. BECAUSE THE SENDING UNIT WAS A PART OF THE FUEL PUMP ASSEMBLY, THE ENTIRE UNIT REQUIRED REPLACEMENT. ALSO, WHILE DRIVING AT NIGHT WITH THE HEADLIGHTS ON, WHEN THE CONSUMER ACTIVATED THE TURN SIGNAL, THE HIGH BEAM LIGHTS WOULD COME ON. UPON TURNING THE SIGNAL OFF, THE HIGH BEAMS WOULD ALSO TURN OFF.

VISIBILITY

7/15/2009 - AITKIN, MN
FIVE YEARS AFTER OWNING OUR 2001, PONTIAC AZTEC OUR INSIDE FAN CONTROL BURNT UP AND NEEDED REPLACEMENT. 07/07/2009 I PURCHASED ANOTHER 2001, AZTEC AT AN AUCTION AND TO FIND OUT THE FAN WASN'T WORKING. I BROUGHT MY VEHICLE INTO THE GARAGE FOR REPAIRS AND MAINTANENCE AND THE MECHANIC SAID THE WIRES WERE MELTED AND IT WILL COST CLOSE TO $200.00 FOR JUST REPLACEMENT PARTS. THE FIRST PONTIAC HAD EXTENDED WARRANTY WHICH WAS A GOOD THING. IN CLOSING I AM CURIOUS TO KNOW IF OTHER COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN FILED? THANK YOU
