The battery light on my 1995 Toyota Corolla came on. I had the battery checked and got a new one, but the light was still on. I had the diagnostic done and said alternator was bad, so I got a new one and put it on. I had to take the AC loose to get to it, and now the car doesn't do anything, like it doesn't have a battery in it, no light, buzzers etc. ...
My Oldsmobile 442 will not start. The lights will come on, but it will not start.
The air conditioner in my 2001 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class works fine but the heater and defrost only blowing cold air. I have taken it to a couple shops and no one seems to know what the problem is . I cant afford to take is to a Merecedes-Benz dealership right now. Any ideas?
My 2008 Mitsubishi Eclipse's check engine light will not work, and because it will not work, the car will not pass inspection. Can you just replace the light or do you have to replace the entire cluster?
We replaced the torque converter seal on a 2001 Suzuki XL-7, when putting transmission back in we can't get it to engage in gear, there is a vacuum hose we can't find where to hook up and seems like the transmission has no pressure. Any suggestions?
The cheapest yaw rate sensor I can find is $400. Can I just disconnect it? The thing is annoying anyway. This is the first vehicle I've owned with one and I've never had any problems without one. Will cleaning it help?
I just put a new radiator, a new cap, a thermostat and hosing. I drove it on the hey ran and stayed cool 180 but then traffic stop and within 5 mins. the gauge went to 220 and kept climbing what would cause this?
