Dealers are very rude and they will all ways charge you more money then needed. I got codes for my car from and personal owner (small business) they did a check engain scan and the codes came up and they were very nice after I had asked if they would please write down the meanings of the codes, When they did that there were some that they did not know but the parts store like schuck's will scan for free and again they will also write down what part you will need for the code and they should also know about those other codes as well. I do live in Vancouver, Wa and I'm not sure where you are located but the people that are helping you should like they really don"t want to help. Rude people every where.

I would say that the 1 gear and odo is out. Transition may need replaced but first you have codes great, shucks automotive will place a reader to your codes and tell you for free what it is, You may be able to call and tell the codes but I would do that step, The only ones that are going to have the answers to the codes are dealers, auto shops and parts stores. Part stores are free. If you don't have odo placed on the dash board then push the odo butten and it should say odo off then when the car is shut off it should go back to the way it should when you start the car again, and odo should not be showing because it is always on . In stead of trying to go to a auto mechanic I would place phone calls most of them are very nice and information is very helpful, The ford store is very happy to give you any info you need.

I have a 94 GMC Safari, it won't shift out of 1st gear, the ABS light is stuck on, and the speedo doesn't work. At first the ABS light would come on and off, when the light was on the trans would't shift, when it was off it shifted fine. Now it's stuck on and won't shift. The computer was flashing a vehicle speed sensor code. I changed the vehicle speed sensor and the van still has the problem. There was a trans flush and a front pump seal and rear tail shaft seal, and trans filter changed.

Took the battery out to replace the fron left headlight. Once we put the batter back the car would not start and all lights inside and out started flashing. Started the car downhill in 1st gear and drove for 20 min. Blue flashing light was on whole time. This light is located to the left of steering wheel next to interior dimmer control. Got home and car would not start and blue flashing light continues to go off. What is that light and how do we get it to stop? Also why does the car not start.

Aircon am driving a 2003 ford focus and its ac is not working properly. When I turn the ac switch to 1st, 2nd, or 3rd gear it does not do anything but the AC light comes on but no air blows. When I turn the ac switch to 4th gear the air blows hard and the AC light goes off and will not turn on when I push it. It is only air that comes out and no cold air. What I need to replace for it to work again?

I have a 2002 Honda Civic LX that is nearing its 100,000 mile mark. About two weeks ago the lights in the dash started periodically faltering. When this happens all the lights go out, and the odometer flashes all zeros and then once it starts working again the mileage reappears. Additionally, when I turn on my headlights the lights where my (automatic) gears light up doesn't work. What's wrong?


You may have a defective ignition starter switch. this switch is located to the back of the ignition lock cylinder which actuated it. The switch is known to have this type of symptoms when it starts to fail. You need to remove the steering column *** ... Honda Civic
