I pulled the steering wheel along with the clock spring and harness to the base of the steering column. The way the harness is tied together it makes it easier to make sure you have everything. When you remove the clock spring (piece that is below the air bag that allows the wire connections to rotate) DO NOT spin it once removed. Tape it in place or you can damage it.

Well, I finally got 4th gear fixed. Yay! New valve body and clutches did that trick.

Had a close call this morning, hubby went out and picked up a b-day gift for me and got about halfway back when the temp gauge was almost to the red. He immediately shut off the A/C and turned on the heater to cool it back down as he was close to home. He was lucky, 150 degrees blowing on him while it's 108 out! Anyhow, after a lot of time and cussing, he tracked down a corroded ground wire for the fans, they weren't turning fast enough to cool the engine. All fixed and running cool again.

The Service Vehicle Soon light came on, a high beam wasn't working. Bulb was good, had power to it but GM in their infinite wisdom instead of grounding the bulb, runs the DRL from the ground side back through the relay and fuse and somewhere around Robin Hood's barn to a ground that can't be found. I said screw it and bypassed the DRL and grounded the headlight bulb itself so it works, got inspection in a couple of weeks. I might fix it right if I can when the weather cools down.

I added steering wheel controls as it was plug and play. 

I have been interested in doing this in my 2001 Aztek...are you saying that the wiring for the radio controls is already in the steering column, so all I have to do is replace the steering wheel with one with steering controls and the wiring is already there?

I was actually able to correct it. It seems I somehow didnít have the stepper motor adjusted so it hit its limit at the ďCĒ. I feel a bit dumb, but itís the one gauge that goes counterclockwise, so Iíll give myself a pass.

Iím not sure how long this link will work, but I purchased my stepper motors as part of a kit with replacement red LEDs...


Half of the original incandescent bulbs installed on the cluster had either burnt out or had failed connections that made them work sporadically, so nighttime driving was a pain. Since the stepper motors are known to go out as well, and I was already going to have the cluster removed, I decided to swap everything.

If youíre handy with a soldering iron, the process is easy enough... though some guesswork may be needed with determining + (pos) and - (neg) for the LEDs.

I'm watching this with some interest as my temp gauge hasn't worked for ages.  And with those shiny new heads n gaskets, I figure now is a good time to repair it because it's cumbersome to use my scan tool as a temp gauge..

Where'd you get the stepper motors?

The brake line the runs under the driver's side door rusted out and sprung a leak right at the bracket that holds it in place (about 6 inches or so before the next fitting that goes to the rear). Instead of buying a 25' roll of line, would a 6' length work? I would just like to know so I can order it ahead of time.

It's the #1 line in the diagram and it's leaking from the #14 bracket.

I am the proud owner of a 2001 Pontiac Aztek GT. I was the original owner and at a low point when I needed something more fuel efficient and couldn't afford it I sold it to a friend of mine.... who sold it to another friend of mine.... who recently gave it back to me!! so I have my little money pit back!!!! I didn't realize just how much I missed my Aztek until I was driving it home and it brought tears to my eyes I have loved them since the first time I saw them and I will love it until the day I drive it into the ground
