Love the show guys!
Whenever there is a good rain here in Cincinnati there is a slight chance that my 2007 Saturn Aura will start acting up.
So after the car is sitting in the parking lot and it rains pretty good…there is a chance that when I go to start it that th computer throws error messages.
The most common error is about traction control and that the engine power is reduced.
Once I get this error the car doesn’t have much power as promised but I can drive it around and it does ok unless I try to go over 50 and then it struggles.
This error seems to stick around until it dries out. The last time I got the error I went out and turned the air conditioning up and the defroster on and let it sit idle for about 5 minutes and the error disappeared.
Question is…I have a sunroof and in told that it is possible that there is supposed to be a drain or something that when the water gets in the sides of the closed sunroof that the water should drain, but if they are clogged…water can get into the dashboard.
I do know water is comming in from somewhere because after a good rain and the car sitting for a few days the carpet is wet. Question is…where is this drain and how can I clean it out??
I paid a commercial garage to look at this for me and they couldn’t identify the drain and wanted to sell me a new computer…lol
This issue has been going on since I bought the car with 55k miles on in January of 2014 and I have 75k on it now.
I am also having problems with tires and a garage wanting 1,000 to replace the control arms and bushings but that is another problem. I need to find a noncommercial garage in the area I can trust.
