My 1987 Dodge Ramcharger, 318 Auto, 2wd has a rear door issue. It won't shut and latch properly the owner before me installed additional locks on either side to secure the door but they are ugly. Any way to change out the rear door latch with electric locks or change it adjust it to latch more securely. I have electric locks and windows already and am looking to install remote lock/unlock and security system anyhow but the rear door needs someway to secure it better and needs the ability to lock

My 96 Mercedes E300 Diesel won't start after 3 days of not being driven. My car mechanic replaced the battery and reset the security system, but it did not fix the problem. Could the fact the rear view mirror assembly (which houses the security system) is loose be the source of the problem? The mirror shifts when I hit potholes or drive on bumpy roads and I'm wondering if it affects the security system. The security sytem is the only thing "on" in the car all the time. Any ideas?


Chances are the ignition key sensor is defective, u need to have the dealer test the system with a special scan tool, there is no way around this if u want to use the car anytrime soon, sorry ... Mercedes-Benz E-Class

It cost me $700 to replace the ignition, on October 4, 2008. On October 12, 2009 it happened again.
