Hi, my name is***** am going to try to help you, here! Can I ask a few questions?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
yes
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 7 months ago.
Awesome! Lets try to tackle these problems one at a time. Firstly, do you have access to a scan tool that can read the abs module?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
No, why can I find one?

Where can I find one?
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 7 months ago.
Unfortunately, the scan tools that are able to read abs are pretty expensive, but they are usually available at parts stores like Auto Zone or Advance Auto. You may be able to get one of these stores to read the codes for you at no charge, or find a shop that would be willing to read them out to you at little or no charge, provided they do not do a diagnostic, which is usually going to run around $100 or so.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 7 months ago.
If you get the codes, I can help you to try and diagnose them yourself. There is no way to read the codes or clear them out without the use of a scan tool on this particular vehicle.

Good,thanks. Now question 2 and 3.
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 7 months ago.
Ok, tell me a little more about the heater concern. Is the problem that the temperature is always hot or that it simply will not shut off?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
When the heater is in the off position, it still blows heat.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
It will not shut off.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Heat still blows
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 7 months ago.
Ok, thank you. When you move the blower speed control, does the speed of the fan change at all? Is it always on full blast?
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Good question, Can I tell you in the morning?
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 7 months ago.
I don't see why not. I should be up and at 'em by 8am EST. Let me know and we will continue from there! Goodnight
Expert:  Joshua Haynes replied 7 months ago.
Good morning! I don't know if you are ready to go or not but just in case you were waiting on me, I wanted you to know I am back on. Thanks!
