I left my doors open, I have auto light shut off. My battery will not take a quick boost to start my car. Is it the battery or the computer?
I really really want a 2009 convertible beetle for my first car! Is this car safe? Does it have good MPG? I'm 5'7 with long legs, would that matter and I need to carry my golf clubs with me daily. Would this be a good first car for a 16 year old girl?
Dynamic dimmer control not functioning
My automatic 2000 Honda Accord with 150,000 miles on it sometimes shifts hard. Sometimes when I am at a stop sign and then start to go, it takes it a half second to go, then it jerks and starts to go. Sometimes shifting from say first to second, it jerks. Does this mean my transmission is slipping and may go out soon. Thank you, Christy
The car will not start. We have charged the battery and think it's got to be the switch. Can we roll it down the driveway and pop the clutch without hurting the electronics? We will have to get it to the bottom of the driveway anyway for it to be priced up if it ends up being towed....just wondering if we could bypass the towing.
Dealer says if we rotate our wheels the tire pressure monitors will not work at all. Is there a way to reprogram them; or will they read only in the wrong wheel position? Dealer service says it has to be done with their equiptment. Thank You Linda Davidson
How do you take off a front right axle on a Toyota Tercel?
