Hi my name is \*\*\*\*\* \*\*\*\*\* I will be assisting you today. The system will offer a phone call but please disregard. So to start with has the switch been replaced yet?

NoWhat did i need to replace
Automotive Expert
The driver master switch.

Its continue on Lock and locking by his self aThe slide door making a noiseI don't know how to replace it
Automotive Expert
you have two things going on correct? The lock button doesn’t work from the driver side and the sliding door keeps making a noise from the sliding door?

Yeah. the noise was always a issue now i have new issue its not working the bottoms by the driver side and its keep on unlocking and locking by his self even im out of car!!The noise issue is not important at the moment
Automotive Expert
Ok so to replace the switch bank it’s very simple all you need is a flat head screwdriver or plastic flat trim tool which is what I recommend and the master switch assembly simply pops out of the door panel and just disconnect it.

That will fix the issue?
Automotive Expert
It’s very common issue on these vehicles. But before replacing I would inspect the wiring in the driver door jamb. Simply peels back the rubber boot to inspect the wires for any breaks.

What do you mean peels back the rubber boot
Automotive Expert
when you open the driver in between the door jamb there is a rubber boot with the door wiring running through it. Move the boot to expose the wiring so you can inspect it.

Where can i see this boot

how can fix the noise from the sliding door?Can i ask some more question ?
Automotive Expert
The sliding door has a rear door latch/ lock actuator that is very common for going bad. But to replace this the door needs to be removed and the window needs to be removed to remove the carrier holding the latch.

As the moment it's start to working little the lock :-) its on and offOne more question about my car the [brake](/topics-brake-dodge/) light is always on but i never had issues with the brake but inspection will it not pass how I'm getting rid from the brake light?
Automotive Expert
Have you checked the brake lamp switch at the brake pedal for damage. They are also know to fail.!

Where do i located brake lamp switch can i check it by my self or this need a mechanic?
Automotive Expert
Where the Brake pedal is at follow the pedal arm and it’s attached to it. To remove just turn and it will free up then disconnect the connector.

Would you recommend if coolant leaks to use kseal?Coolant
Automotive Expert
I don’t approve if sealants in the cooling system, they freeze up the thermostat and clog the heater core.

it's better not to use?
Automotive Expert
it’s better not to use.

My car sometimes usually after diving long is it going little the what showing cold hot to hot but it's keep going back to middle it that an issue i have to check

The temperature gauge

My cars coolant temp, goes up a little past the half way point just past the half line when I'm in traffic, it goes 1 or 2 lines past the half way point but cools down to the half way point when speeding up
Automotive Expert
That means the vehicle is getting hot and there’s either a leak in the cooling system or you have something else going on

But it's only happen in traffic not when driving normal
Automotive Expert
Are your fans coming on?

How do i check this?
Automotive Expert
Once the temp is at the half way mark the fans should be coming on by the radiator and you should be able to see them coming on.

How can i program by my self keyless key to my car
Automotive Expert
To program the key you will need a scan tool that can perform the function and you will need a key code from the dealership.
