Electrical problems out the ass

Ok to make this easy, i'll just number all my problems lol

1. Cruise control fail, if i pull on the dash cover a little bit i can get the little green light on the cruise control button to turn on but no matter what i do the actual cruise control wont work. yes im pressing the buttons on the steering wheel.

2. Flasher fail- to go along with my stupid cruise control the flashers wont work unless the dash is pulled or jiggled

3. Same with the stupid sunroof, still gotta play with that dash and i'm starting to think its the harness for it. but then my rear defroster works so i'm like eh wtf do i do

4. Hid headlights, worked great when i first had em, now the passenger brights don't work but don't really care, but the driver side hid went from being white to off white like oem yellow looking crap

5. Passanger seat seat belt light, stupid thing wont turn off unless i plug in a seat belt even if no one is sitting there.

6. i hate electronics...

1. I have the same problem on that I would like an answer too.

2. Same issue, when I do jiggle mine only the left signals flash and I have to actually use the right turn signal at the same time to make it work.

3. My sunroof works, could it be possible that it's just the buttons themselves?

4. Go oem! Ehh can't help on that either

5. Well as long as your seat belts are working just fine then do what I did and go under the passenger seat, then unplug the wire the plugs into the seat. Warning light gone and annoying beeping gone as well. Only for the passenger side!

6. You hate two decade old electronics lol.

Re: Electrical problems out the ass

1)Cruise control module fails. Car is old. Happened to 4 out of 6 3rd gen owners I know except mine of course
2)Did you pull the dash before?
3)Could be.
4)HIDs in a non-projector housing? probably some cheap Chinese made brand from ebay? that's what you get. lol...
5)Just by the moonroof, there is that dual picture of "buckle your seats!"(rearview mirror) remove that plastic housing carefully and unplug the plug. That'll kill the light and the annoying beeping/buzzing.
6)See JoshauaXD's explanation above.
