My battery went dead and I exchanged it with a new one, but after installing the new one the radio and drivers side window stopped working, I took the drivers door panel off and found a front door module but the motor worked when we put a battery pack on the wires? This module has a label that says it is programmable. Is this a computer related problem/s?


The radio has a code that you can find in the owners manual and the window just may have a blown fuse. Check to see if any of the fuses are blown.Very common. just may have had a power surge. ... 2000 Jaguar XJ

Just put a new battery in my Cadilla STS because I thought the old one was dead, but after putting the new one in everything seemed fine and trunk, doors, radio, lights all worked. I turned the key and everything went dead. Can anyone tell me what the problem can be?


Sounds like a loose connection on the battery. Clean and tighten them, and check the battery ground. Is the starter cable on tight? If still nothing, a shop needs to check the ignition switch for a defect. ... 1995 Cadillac Seville STS

I have a 2004 Pontiac Grand Am GT. The other day my battery went dead (tried charging it, no luck) so I bought a new one. We put the new battery in and it started right away. The next morning when I tried to go to work, it wouldn't start. It wanted to but wouldn't. Is there any other reason I could be having this problem?

Windows I have a vw polo saloon 1.6 2001 model. last night i opened the doors using the key and the window on the drivers side went down and wouldnt come back up i looked at the fuses and thought one of the ones for the window had blown so i swapped them over so i could get the window back up. I went and bought some new fuses today and put a new fuse in but the window went down again and got stuck again. I can only have one window working at a time. what could be the problem?

I have a 2004 GMC Yukon. Yesterday my battery went dead. After replacing with a new one, I turned on the air conditioner and now air only comes out of the dash window defroster vents and not the front,side or floor vents. It is very strange that it worked fine before replacing the battery and now the AC just seems to be stuck on that mode and the button to switch to other vents doesn't respond. What could be the problem?


Look to see if there's a broken vacuum line going to the front, side or floor vent. Listen if there's a hissing noise to indicate that there's a vacuum leak. This system should be using vacuum from the engine to open and close the air div ... 2004 GMC Yukon

About 6 months ago my battery went dead. One minute it started and then the engine was shut down and it wouldn't start again without a boost. We got a new battery and in 3 months it did the same thing. had the battery checked and they said it wasn't any good. I bought another one and this one lasted 2 weeks. The difference is that the engine was totally dead. Nothing worked The door locks nothing. I got another boost and got the car home. After that it worked well with no problems until

Your car probably has an aftermarker remote car starter module installed that you reset, by changing the battery. It has nothing to do with your actual car starter. You will need to shut down(valet) or uninstall that aftermarket remote car starter mo ... 1990 Nissan Stanza

My a/c went out on my 99 mercury cougar but that was because my a/c compressor went out. My heat was working after that and then it went out too. I thought it was my blower motor so i bought a new one. When i put it in and turned it on, it worked for about 10 seconds and quit working. Then i straight wired my old blower motor to the battery and it came on, so i know it wasn't the problem. I thought maybe it was a relay but i took another relay that was for my windshield wiper and put it where th

I have a 91 f-150 and the it has problems with solenoids .its a brand new solenoid jus put on last week and a brand new one was on it jus before this one and it went bad to kept draining the battery. the new one i have on now once in a while wont let my starter stop spinning even with the key out of the ignition it continuously trys to turn over i have to unhook the positve on the battery and tap on the solenoid to get it all to work right.


I suspect you have a bad ignition switch that's not releasing current to solenoid taking your solenoids out. Solenoid has to be activated by switch to work, if it stays on that tells me current is still being fed to solenoid. Double check your wiring ... 1991 Ford F150

I bought a new battery for my 2000 sonata, and then after putting in the battery, the car would not turn on. So we checked the clamps and everything to make sure they were connected. And after switching back to my old battery and back to the new one we got the car back working. So when I went to leave the store, the car would sputter badly, and now i cannot go over 20 mph. any ideas? I watched the guy put the battery in and even helped in and he did nothing wrong, so this whole problem is weird


The alarm system may have to relearn,and the body control module may have to relearn,I would drive it a long distance to see if this stands true.Also,most of the time you have to get the e c m re flashed at the dealer,it is a wonder it stated at all. ... 2000 Hyundai Sonata
