My Mustang GT 2008 was working fine then I noticed that when I had the lights on they would blink when I hit the brakes. Took it to O'Reillys and the battery tested fine as did the alternator, putting out 99 amps. However, when the lights were turned on and I hit the brakes the amps dropped to 88 then went back up to 91. Took it to the dealership and they said they cannot re-create the issue (and me with an extended warranty). Also, the radio turned itself off just once the other day while drivi

The battery warning light in our 99 T&C started coming on. Garage diagnosed as bad (old) battery. Put in new battery, ok for about 4 days, took back and they said it was bad new battery . . . replaced and seemed ok for a few days again. Now it is back. It seems to come on from a cold start (overnight in heated garage). If you drive for awhile and shut car off and let it set a few minutes and restart, the light does not come back on.

Check engine light I took the car in to autozone, after putting it on the machine "whatever" It came up "H02S12 circuit heater malfuntion" I do not live near a Honda dealership, my local mechanic said it may be the catalytic converter, or holes in hoses. They turned the light off but it came back on. This seems nothing to me like the autozone results. Got any insight?


Since Autozone only turned off the light, if the problem persists, the light will come right back on. Autozone didn't actually do anything with the car. H02S12 means the Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 2. They should have given you a trouble code as w ... 2006 Honda CR-V

I have a 2003 L200 sedan. I took my car to one mechanic to have the rear brakes fix. He only put on the brake shoes. When I got my car back, the brakes were very low and soft. I took it to another mechanic who said they missed parts and the drums had to be replace. Do I have drum or disc brakes? When I got my car back, the brakes were perfect. I just want to make sure I wasn't charge for something I don't have.


If the drums were replaced then you have drum brakes the l200 saturns had two options for brakes anti lock brakes it has all disc brakes without anti lock it has disc on front and drum on rear hope this helps ... 2002 Saturn L-Series

My 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager's Service Engine light came on. Then after a week it wouldn't start. We took of the battery cables over night then put them back on. Now it works fine and the light has not come back on. We did get the light checked and it said it was the TCM. It has shut off on us like this many times and we have taken it in when it would start again and they said they couldn't find anything wrong with it. Could it be the TCM that is causing it to shut off?
