Having problems with your 2001 Volvo S60 ?

2001 volvo s60 brake lights out. mechanic not sure what's going on. Thinks it may be something with the relays. This car has had problems with lights since the day that I bought it (new). The dealer used to just bang on the light with his fist and the light would come back on. Already replaced one light housing, now neither of the two brake lights work (the third light, does, though)

2006 Grand Cherokee Laredo...headlights and dash backlights blink on and off intermittently. Passenger side window rolls 3/4 of the way up and then back down to halfway again on its own when I use the automatic button to roll the window up. Warning lights on dash blink on and off while driving. And last but not least the illumination for the heat/ac controls has gone out completely I used to be able to bang on it once or twice and it would come on but now its completely gone out.


The heat controll failure is a stand alone issue, it needs replaced. As for the other issues, It sounds like the body controll module is malfunctioning, Only a dealer can test that module ... 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

WEIRD PROBLEM I have a 2000 Saturn Sl1 that was running fine and then it would not start. The lights in the car come on and so does the radio. The head lights do not come on. While I have the key turned to where the lights and radio come on, when I push my brake everything turns off, and when I release the brake everything turns back on. I have charged the battery and it still will not start. Is this an electrical problem, the starter, alternator?

2000 Acura 3.5 RL suddenly has no tail lights or tag lights. Brake, reverse and blinker all work. Checked fuses-all appear fine.

Hello..... I have a problem with my 2001 VW Jetta Wolfsburg edition. Last January Midas replaced all 4 brake pads, rotors, and abs sensor on left rear wheel.

I need a fuse box diagram for a 1992 Dodge Dakota pickup truck. I need to find the fuse for the left rear tail light. The bulb was replaced however when I turn on the lights the left rear tail light will not come on. The brake light works/comes on;I first thought the socket was bad but when I put the car in gear to back up both lights come on. So I think the fuse needs to be replaced. I purchased the car used and the fuse panel cover is missing.

Tonight I was coming down some steep hills and had my 1990 Dodge Spirit car in 3rd gear instead of OD and I was applying the brake and the anti-lock light came on and the same time the car jerked like the brakes were locking or something, This scared me, I put it back on OD and the same thing happened when I had to apply the brakes the light went on, the car jerked like it was shifting down or locked brakes.

Security light comes on when first started for the day, use to be random but more frequent now, i usually shut the car down and restart and the security light will go out. if i leave the security light on and put the car in gear i get a dinging sound. I had the remote starter unhooked because the brake pedal kept falling and signaling the lights on and i would wake up to a dead battery, at least that is what the garage told me it was after changing the master cylinder didn't stop the brake light


It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many. Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will do this more and more oft ... 2000 Buick LeSabre

The other day I noticed that when I pressed on the brake my alero would jump forward a little bit and the rpms would go up. Not real high though. Even when in park the rpms would go up and down but still not very high. It eventually stopped but the service engine soon light came on shortly after. After a weekend of not using my car I got back into it to drive and the engine light was still on but it was not acting funny anymore. Made a stop and got into the car again after about an hour and when
