2004 Buick LeSabre Shake/Vibration in Steering Wheel, Floor, Seat at Highway Speeds on Smooth Roads (Diagnose/Balance Tires/Wheels) Service Manual

download
Correction 1. Visually inspect the tires and the wheels. Inspect for evidence of the following conditions and correct as necessary: 2. Set the tire pressure to 30 psi (205 kPa) COLD. Subject: Shake/Vibration in Steering Wheel, Floor, Seat at Highway Speeds on Smooth Roads (Diagnose/Balance Tires/Wheels) Models: 1998-2005 Buick Park Avenue, Park Avenue Ultra 2000-2005 Buick LeSabre 1998-2004 Cadillac Seville (SLS, STS) 2000-2005 Cadillac DeVille (DTS only) 2001-2003 Oldsmobile Aurora 2000-2005 Pontiac Bonneville (17″ Tires only) • Missing balance weights • Bent rim flange • Irregular tire wear • Incomplete bead seating • Tire irregularities • Mud/ice build-up in wheel • Stones in the tire tread © 2009 General Motors Corporation. All rights reserved 3. Road test the vehicle with the Electronic Vibration Analyzer (EVA) essential tool for a sufficient distance on a known, smooth road surface to duplicate the condition. Record the Hertz (Hz) reading as displayed by the EVA onto the tire data worksheet found at the end of this bulletin. This should be done after a tire break-in period of at least 10 miles (16 km) at 45 mph (72 km/h) or greater, in order to eliminate any possible tire flat-spotting. 4. If the road test indicates a shake/vibration still exists, check the imbalance of each tire/wheel assembly on a known, calibrated, off-car dynamic balancer. If any assembly calls for more than ¼ ounce on either rim flange, remove all balance weights and rebalance to as close to zero as possible. Important: Some GM dealers may have a Hunter GSP9700 Road Force Balancer, or a Coats XR1850 Runout Balancer. Either will simplify Step 5 by not requiring dial indicators. If a Hunter GSP9700 machine is available, it may also be used to measure the radial force of the tire/wheel assembly. A guideline here is 18 lbs or less. 5. While on the balancer, measure wheel runout. If radial or lateral runout exceeds .020 in (0.50 mm) for aluminum wheels (.030 in (0.76 mm) for steel wheels), replace the wheel. 6. After confirming wheel balance and wheel runout, if any changes were made, road test the vehicle again. 7. If the smooth road shake/vibration still exists: Important: THE CONTROL ARMS SHOULD ONLY BE INSTALLED ON VEHICLES IF, AFTER THE TIRE AND WHEEL DIAGNOSIS AND REPAIRS HAVE BEEN PERFORMED, THE VIBRATION CONDITION STILL EXISTS. 8. Replace both lower control arms on vehicles built prior to the following VIN breakpoints. On Aurora, Bonneville, DeVille, Park Avenue, Park Avenue Ultra and Seville models, a newly developed hydro-bushing lower control arm with improved damping characteristics has been released. This control arm is not used on the LeSabre. The new lower control arms may provide an incremental improvement to the vehicle ride. Customers who have become “tuned in” to the shake condition may still feel some shake in the vehicle after the new lower control arms are installed. Refer to Lower Control Arm Replacement in SI (refer to the Parts Information table below for SI document ID numbers) . Important: The completed worksheet must be attached to the hard copy of the repair order. • If a Hunter GSP9700 Road Force/Balancing machine is used, record radial force variation (RFV) on the worksheet at the end of this bulletin. If one or more of the tire/wheel assemblies read more than 18 lbs, match mount the tire to the wheel to get below 18 lbs. Readings of 12 lbs or less are preferable for sensitive customers. • If a Coats XR1850 Runout/Balancing Machine is used, record radial runout of the tire/wheel assemblies on the worksheet at the end of this bulletin. If one or more of the tire/wheel assemblies are more than .040, match mount the tire to the wheel to get below .040. Readings of .030 inch or less are preferable for sensitive customers. • If the RFV or runout cannot be reduced to an acceptable level, replace the affected tire(s) under the guidelines of the GM Tire Warranty. • The screened tire program is only available for the General branded tires used on the Buick LeSabre. Complete the tire request form at the end of this bulletin and fax to Continental/General. • Road test the vehicle to ensure the shake/vibration has been eliminated

2004 Toyota Prius EV (Electric Vehicle) Button Installation Instructions

Time and Difficulty: I found the install to be moderately difficult and pretty time-consuming (about 3 hours) ; others have found it simple and report they have done it in as little as 30 minutes. Your experience will depend on your familiarity with the tools and electronics. I, personally, found insertion of the connection pin into the HV ECU plug to be difficult and almost got the first pin irrevocably stuck in the slot. I spent quite a bit of time with that part alone. I also found threading the wire behind the dash to be fairly tricky. I think the average person, not encountering any problems, could do this job in about 1-1½ hours. Procedure in Brief: 1) Remove bottom cover of steering wheel 2) Locate and unplug flasher plug 3) Open plug and remove 1-3 unused connector pins 4) Reattach steering wheel cover 5) Dismantle part of dash (vents) and remove lower glove box 6) Locate HV ECU (gray plugs) and remove lower plug 7) Solder wire to connector pin and insert into ECU plug (#27) 8) Splice EV button ground wire into ECU plug ground wire (#1) 9) Plug ECU plug back into the ECU 10) Thread wire behind dash to opening near dimmer switch 11) Attach switch to cover and solder wires in place 12) Reassemble the dash 13) Test Procedure in Detail: *Review ALL steps before proceeding and be sure you understand all terms used and you’ve looked at all diagrams and pictures. 1) Remove the bottom cover of the steering wheel by releasing the steering wheel adjustment handle and unscrewing the silver screw in that recess. 2004_prius_evv2.doc Page 4 of 20 Last updated March 13th, 2004 Then, turn the steering wheel 90 degrees right and remove the black screw that becomes visible on the right side of the steering column. Then turn the wheel 180 degrees left (90 degrees from normal position) and remove the black screw on the left side of the steering column. Carefully pull down on the lower portion of the steering column cover until it releases. Mine was a bit stiff/stuck to the upper part and you may need to carefully use a butter knife or screwdriver to start prying them apart. 2004_prius_evv2.doc Page 5 of 20 Last updated March 13th, 2004 2) Locate and unplug the white flasher plug visible just on the left side of the bottom of the steering column. 3) 2 little clips keep a cover locked in place. Pull those apart and remove the cover. Inside you’ll see lines of silver connector pins–some with wires attached, some without. You should remove between 1 and 3 of those pins–2 is probably safe, 3 might be better, since if you plan to install an OEM button at some point, you’ll probably need more pins for that. (You need one pin for the procedure, but it’s handy to have a back-up.) To remove the pins, you can use your paper clip to start the process of sliding them out, and then they just pull right out. 2004_prius_evv2.doc Page 6 of 20 Last updated March 13th, 2004 Stick them to a piece of tape or put them somewhere secure so you can find them later. Snap the cover back into place, and plug the flasher plug back in. 4) Replace the steering wheel cover by reversing the process. Be sure everything’s aligned properly and that there are no gaps. 5) Now you’ll need to dismantle part of the dash to get access to the ECU and other areas. First, open the top and bottom glove box doors. Squeeze the inside sides of the lower glove box together to get the catches past the portion of the dash frame that keeps the door from falling all the way open. Then pull the entire door straight toward you – it will unclip from the hinges at the bottom of the glove box. 2004_prius_evv2.doc Page 7 of 20 Last updated March 13th, 2004 You may also need to unclip the little hydraulic piston that keeps the door from falling open too quickly. Next, grasp the bottom of the silver vent piece next to the glove box. Pull it toward you firmly. It should unclip at the bottom first. Then pull the whole unit straight out
