Instrument panel needles goes nuts back and forth then stop sometimes all at once, sometimes only one or two. all or most of the lights on instrument panel come on like ABS, BRAKE, BATTERY, ENGINE STAYS ON. The RPM needle was pegged and blocking the red plastic gear indicator and preventing me from shifting from park to drive, until I forced it and now the indicator is detached. The needles still go crazy, so can't tell how fast, how much gas, etc. brake fluid levels were low, everytime I added

94 altima brake lights won't go off draining the battery. I disconnected the wire to the brake light switch on the pedal and the brake lights stay on. I unplugged each rear tail light assembly and the third brake light stays on. The only way to get it to go off is to pull the fuse. Any suggestions?

Hi. I have a 2002 Ford Windstar. The ABS and Emergency brake lights come on often and stay on. I had the brakes checked and they are fine. It had some quirks, like the radio turning on or off by itself, tail lights staying on after the van is turned off. I replaced the battery since it checked bad and now it is worse. I have no dome lights, no brake lights, no left turn signals only a right front turn signal, the radio still turns on and off on it's own, only the right puddle lamp turns on. I h

After shuting off my 1997 Subaru Impreza, the brake lights stay on and drain the battery. The brake light switch at the brake pedal had a melted plastic plunger which closed the swith and allowed the lights to stay on. I replaced the switch with a new one and it melted too. There is a short somewhere up stream that I can't find. Anyone had this problem? Thanks for your time.

My car's brake lights stay on all the time, and my gear shifter moves threw all the gears without the key even being in the ignition. What is the problem? I had been driving the car, but I have to disconnect the battery so the brake lights don't run all the juice out of the battery when the car is parked. Not to mention, its very unsafe to not have working brake lights...

Battery keeps going dead after a few days. Replaced battery, replaced alternator. Red battery light stays on in dash at night after vehicle is shut off and locked. Next morning, battery is dead. After replacing battery and alternator, Tahoe doesn't want to idle smoothly or at proper rpm range. Idle keeps shifting up & down, and when ever you stop at a red light, engine dies if you don't keep your foot on accelerator.Also, keeps blowing fuse for door locks.


Take out the fuse for the door locks. Then see if the battery still goes dead. If it does not go dead, then you know the electrical circuit that has the short. You could just leave the fuse out, not have power door locks but at least the battery woul ... 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe
