In my Chevy Equinox LT AWD 2007 i have good power steering but the traction control and stabily trak warning light is coming on every time i start the ignition and drive my car, saying to service this system, and the tire pressure sensor of the right front tire is broken not working and its replaced by another one not reading the tire pressure. so could this sensor be the reason of traction control and stabily trak warning light.

My alternator went out saturday, so I bought another on Sunday and put it on without replacing the battery, and that one burned up. So I had another one ordered and I replaced the battery, and I got that one on it seemed to be working fine. I drove it to the parts store to let them check it out to make sure everything was working fine. The battery checked good, starter checked good, but the alternator said the diode had failed. So I was driving home and you could smell the alternator burning up

I have a 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP. One and a hlaf years ago had the MAF & EGR valve replaced, 1 month later another MAF put in. Two weeks ago I had MAF put in as engine light came on, drove 20 miles and it shut off. Had it towed as it would start and shut right off again and they said it was a defective MAF...again. Engine light came back on next day and it ws the intake manifold & gasket...had them replaced. Engine light came on yesterday on my way home, I made one stop and could not g


Hi Dawn.I don't believe that your MAF has ever been the root cause of the problem to begin with. They don't often fail on their own and especially after only a month. If it is due to an electronic problem then it will be instant. The o ... 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix

The alternator failed on my daughters 2002 ford taurus, I replaced it and when I did the charging light went out but after a few seconds it came back on. I checked the voltage output with a meter and had none. I took it back to the auto supply and they replaced it after testing it and finding no output. I installed the second one and had the same result as the first one. Do you think I got two bad alternators or do I have another problem to look for?

Service stability system warning light and service tire monitor warning light come on alternatively. Tire pressure is properly set although dash indicator reports varying pressures from 26psi in one tire to 35psi in another with no psi indicated for the other two tires..Sometimes when the stability warning is flashed, it is accompanied with what feels like a sudden braking or downshifting for just a second.

Electrical problem My battery is new, my alternator is 2 years old. My car doesn't start sometimes. It won't crank...no clicking noise...lights work, radio windshield wipers too. Wait about 30 minutes then it will start. it is very embarassing at the gas station because I can't move the vehicle for another one to pump gas. Is it the alternator...no check engine light is on. Is it the starter relay? I've replaced door lock relays and window motor and relays. How much is the starter relay?

Hi. My 2000 Nissan Altima, started giving me problems yesterday. I tried turning the key, and wouldn't pull over. All the lights lit up on the dashboard, along with my headlights coming on. So I know it is not the battery. Sometime ago, I had the same problem, and had the starter replaced. The starter replaced was a referbished one, and did work for a little over a year. Could this be the reason as to why this is happen? Or could it be something else? An alternater, or a faulty wire leading to t


Dash and headlights don't draw as much power as a starter, so simply having that doesn't mean the battery has enough power to turn the starter over.\015\012\015\012However, I would say that if you want to pinpoint the problem quickly, tak ... 2000 Nissan Altima

I replaced the alternator in my 2002 gt Mustang and the battery light came on drove the car for around 20-25 miles and it died. I tried to start the car and all I got was a ticking sound. I then had the battery recharged and the car started. The guage shows it's charing now but my battery light is on what could the problem be besides another bad alternator.

I am replacing an old GM alternator, on a boat, with a Valeo 12v 60A (A13N110) It has a B+ and a B- terminal, the B- is common with the body of the alternator. In addition there is are spade terminals. Marked L and +. The old alternator only had one wire from the ignition warning light. Can this go to the spade + to exite the windings? How is it normaly connected? The new Valeo alternator was orriginaly (I believe) fitted to a Renault 5

Yes, it could be. Or you can check your battery. And try adding brake fluid to your master cylinder. That sometimes will cause the brake light to come on. Or check your emergency brake. Hope this helps, James Booth. ... 1991 Geo Prizm
