Hi.

The "Height HI" indicator blinking means that the control module had detected a suspension problem.

The car became bumpy and rigid because the active suspensions cannot be controlled properly

The indicator may be temporarily reset disconnecting the battery for one minute, but the warning will probably come back.

The best thing to do is having the suspension system checked at a garage as soon as possible.

Regards.

2 problems with my 1992 940. twice when I turned the key on,I could not start the car or much of anything.I noticed the ABS light stayed on after all of the other lights went out.I turned the key off and it started the next time. The second problem is a steering wheel vibration,pulling to the left on braking,and when I stopped to check the tires there was a very strong brake burning odor on the front drivers side wheel. I would appreciate your help. ps I pulled both front wheels to check for bra


The first problem sounds like a defective ignition switch problem. The second definately sounds like frozen front left calliper. You can try removing the calliper and rebuilding it or just replace it. ... 1992 Volvo 240

The check light came on, so I checked my oil and it was very very very low. I added one quart and the light went off it ran fine. The next day the light came on and when I stopped the car would stall or miss before driving smooth again. So I checked the oil and it was still low so I added half a quart. The light went off for two days the car drove just fine. Then it came on again, I added a little more oil. The light went off it drove fine. Today the light came on the car started to st

History: 2 days ago the battery light came on. Car ran fine that evening. The next morning. The tach stopped working. a minute later the speedometer stopped working. Then, another minute later, the car began running rough. Then died. Car would not start. Starter just chattered. Replaced battery and drove to nearest autozone. had charging system checked. Wasn't charging. Replaced 7.5 A Alternator fuse (#2 fuse). Car started. Battery light went off and verified charging. Drove it 97 miles without


Replacing the fuse the first time was the right move, becuase it could have been a fluke that it blew. Replacing it again and again was not! You should have found out EVERYTHING that the #2 fuse controlled and verified that the components weren't ... 2000 Ford Contour

I recently noticed a difference in my car when i was driving i came to a stop at a red light. my ac started to become warm and i also noticed my rpm was low. so i asked my uncle and he said that they might just have to increase the rpm. but as i was doing research i read that the 2002 camry rpm aren't adjustable... is that true? then one day i went to work and my car wouldn't start. my uncle thought that it was the oxygen sensor but when we bought the part it still wouldnt' start. can someone pl

My 2005 Civic overheated for the first time when I was at a light the other day. I turned the car off and opened the hood and of course the first thing I thought it was that I needed coolant and I didn't have any. A good Samaritan stopped by and poured some into the engine and I had a water bottle which I also poured into the radiator. The car would not start and he gave me a jump start. I managed to get home (1/2 away). The next day I filled it up with coolant and noticed that the car was

How can i tell if i blew a head gasket or if its something else. I noticed that my car was leaking alot of fluid, i stopped by the nearest gas station and added water. The gauage did not move. I figured if i drove the car it would start to go down. It didnt. The car started to buck, so I pulled over again and this time it died. The car started the next day but the motor was shaking real bad and staling. I added some gasket repair, and the instructions said to run it with the heater on for 15 min


OK you will need to remove all the spark plugs and see if water is on them. at that time you can spend the engine over to see if any water is in the cylinders. this works best if you have pressure on the radiator. you can buy a pressure tester at you ... 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Car loses power when driving, stops starts and is able to be driven again. Happens intermittently. Stop car, wont start again. Went back next day, put 2 gallons of gas in,tank was not empty, drove away. I'm thinking it may be the fuel pump. How easy is it to replace, where is it?


No what is most likely happening is a fuel filter ...it is getting full after running a few minutes and by turning it off it backflushes and is clear enough to run again till it clogs up again ... 2004 Dodge Stratus

My car recently shut off when i was driving in town. it did not have much oil in it and it had an oil leak i pushed it off the road and put oil in it but the car didn't start. i noticed the antifreeze tank was low so i filled it up and then got a jump from a friend it started smoking towards the middle of the car when we pushed the car into a parking spot you could see a puddle of antifreeze fluid on the ground. the next day i went to get antifreeze fluid and put it in and it leaked the gallon b


Clearly, at least one problem is a cooling system leak. Whether that has anything to do with it shutting down is another question. If it leaked out the antifreeze you poured in, then a rather major leak has sprung somewhere. You said the car smoke ... 1996 Mercury Mystique

A few days ago, when I started the car, I heard a not typical whirring sound. It stopped as soon as I started driving. This morning the sound did not happen, but, as I drove, the car chugged into each gear and the letters AT appeared next to the D on the dashboard (or maybe it was always there and I didn't notice.) It felt like I was driving in 5th gear which this car does not have.

Went to advance auto parts store and had some codes pulled for my check engine light. Theses codes came up P0113 IAT Sensor 1 Circuit High Input, and P0103 MAF or VAF A Circuit High input.

The next day I started it up and it started idling high for a minute or 2 then slowly went down and

I had new electric cooling fan put in my 2001 jeep grand cherokee about 4 months ago. The past month the fan intermittently wont come on and the car starts to overheat. If I let it sit overnight it seems to work the next day and might work for 3 or 4 days in a row but then it can stop working again at any time. When it stops working it wont come on with the A/C on or off. Today the fan went off again and so far it wont come back on even after a couple of hours of sitting in my driveway. I
