Answers :

Take it back to the dealer because this is their problem under warranty,this could be anything and everything wrong ,might be a 10sec job or a half hour expensive job ,also make sure you have a spare key ,radio code ,spare wheel and jack ,as well ,their are some light fingered people in garages and some of this get sold out the back door .Also best advice if you dont get the original keys with this vehicle and thats to change the barrel in the ignition lock using the chip out of the original key ,stops it being stolen back ,ringed ,and sold on again with registration from an accident job.Buy the barrel for the ignition from another dealer,and make sure you dont give the right chassis number when ordering the part ,change the last number by a couple of digits.Lack of sound could be the external amp if it has one ?? look under the back seat ,but this is the dealers problem not yours .

I drove the car off the lot in 2004 new and never knew the lighter didn't work cause I don't smoke but when I purchased a cell battery for the car I realized it doesnt work the radio above never worked they supposedly replaced it two times before i drovw off the lot BUT it has always gone off and on with bumps now the radio goes to CD off and on all day.


Hello. I feel your pain. That said, it is now 2010 and that dealer most likely will not repair these things for free. You can certainly ask however. Personally I would look in the yellow pages for an auto electric shop and take the car there for ... 2004 Hyundai Santa Fe

Burning oil, a lot suddenly. Car started smoking and needed a quart of oil when the oil had been changed two weeks previously, and had not been low on oil. My daughter was driving when it started smoking quite a lot. It came through into the interior of the car. She stopped and looked at the engine and said that she could see oil spurting out. My husband couldn't see that. he added the quart of oil and drove it home and it was ok.

A light came on in the dashboard instrument cluster while I was driving that looks like the drawing of an engine. I just bought this car,(1999 Porsche Boxster), the dealer is closed today,and none of the owners manuals came with the car. No other warning lights came on, no fluids seem to be leaking, and the car ran fine as I drove back home.

I have a used 2004 Hyundai Tiburon, i went around a corner doing the speedlimit, and the radio went out. I still get power to the console area around the radio, and i've checked my fuses (they appear good.) Would you recommend going to a repair shop and having them look at it or intalling a new radio system in general? The car is also a V6 6Spd Manual with 58k on it.


HelloYou said that you have checked your fuses, but have you checked the fuse at the back of the radio itself? I suspect that it just might be that. There is no need to to think about paying all that money to buy a new radio ... 2004 Hyundai Tiburon

During an oil change at jiffy lube, the car drove in fine, but once the oil change was done the car wouldn't start. The engine would turn over and it looked like the engine was shaking around a lot. They noticed oil had leaked into the air intake system even into the air filter. They eventually added fuel cleaner that some how cleaned the fuel system and got the car started. Is this a oil leak into the exhaust system? Is it fixable?


Many times when oil appears in your air intake and in the air filter this is usually caused by a plugged pcv valve Positive crankcase ventilation valve it costs anywhere from 3-10 dollars.As far as it not starting my guess is they checked the air fil ... 1997 Subaru Legacy

A restart in my i20 2013 model after a flat battery resulted in the radio display saying 1 code. As the buttons on the manual i was given to do not correspond to the car I have pressed the wrong buttons and the display now says 2 code 6300. I do not know how to cancel the lot and reprogram the radio to ABC AM 631

I checked for blown fuses in my 1999 Buick Lesabre Limited and I turned my car on and the radio said ''loc''. I looked in the owners manual for assistance. It told me to enter the lock code that was the default or if I had a specialized code to enter it in. So I tried the obvious answer. Enter the code as 1999 the year of the car did not work. I just need to figure out what the default code is. I never set a code for it in the past.


It looks like it's a 6 digit code,according to a couple websites.\015\012I did find a blog post where someone called the dealer and they provided it apparently at no cost so that is at least worth a shot if you haven't tried already.If they do ... 1999 Buick LeSabre

My car is a 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier RS. I was driving to the store when suddenly my radio shut off. I looked to see that my speed gauge had dropped to zero, I couldn't accelerate, and the steering was gone. I managed to maneuver the car into a parking lot and stop. I smelled the odor of rubber burning for a brief instant before I raised the hood. There was no smoke, and I could see that my serpentine belt was intact--otherwise, there was nothing wrong that I could see. When I called AAA an


I'm only guessing, but it sounds like one of the accessories siezed and stopped the serpentine belt. I would guess the alternator since everything went dead--maybe it shorted out and killed your battery. I don't think it's the battery or timing bel ... 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier

The key is stuck in the ignition. The car is in park, but the ignition will not return to the off position. I drove the car around the block using PRND12, all are working fine. I parked and turned the wheel as far as it would go in either direction. The interior light remains on unless I turn it off manually and the light on the radio remains on. The incessant dinging happens every time I open the door to try something else. Any other suggestions?

I had been driving my 2003 KIA Sorento approx. 30 minutes and was in a parking lot waiting to pull out into traffic, when lots of white smoke started coming out from under the hood. I could smell burning of some kind and then what seemed like an antifreeze smell. I was close to home and drove the car home. It didn't seem to be overheating (looked at the gauge) but continued to smoke after i got home. HELP!


Sounds like you you have sprung a leak, most likely you have a hole in one of you radiator hoses or heater hose, probably the top hose. ( if it were the bottom mose likely it would have overheated )it should be pretty easy t ... 2003 Kia Sorento

I have a 2002 Mercury Cougar with 90k miles on it. The last time I drove the car, the check engine light came on and flashed for about 15 seconds or so, then turned off. After turning the car off, I read my manual and found that the engine was misfiring and that by finding out the code I would be able to find out where to start looking. How do you find the code? Do you need a special tool?


You need an OBII scanner to read the codes. They sell for about $60 +, but if you stop by any good parts store (Autozone, Advance, etc..) they can read the codes for you, most do it FREE ... Mercury Cougar

So I took the battery had it checked and then recharged. Put it back in the car and still the same.

The automatic door locks, clock, radio, and interior lights in my car all went out at the same time. I think it might be a blown fuse or fuses, but When I look in the fuse box I cannot tell which fuse is for what because I cannot tell what the different abbreviations mean. The car manual does not give this information in it.

2001 beetle, 8,000 miles on a rebuilt motor, check engine light is on. What do I check first? Am looking at purchasing this car. Have no manuals to refer too.

In my wife's 2002 Audi A6 Quattro, She can not change the channel and the volume is all the way up and will not turn down. She is 2 states away right now so I'm not able to look at it and she doesn't have an owners manual for the car. I'm trying to find out what fuse she can pull in the fuse panel that will turn the radio off completely so she can drive without all the noise. Also what other things in the car will be affected by pulling that fuse. Any help?

I have a 2003 mini cooper s, manual transmission. I drove it four miles on a gravel road last week. Ever since, I hear a sound like a rock rattling around whenever I go above 50mph. It is very loud and over powers the sound of the radio. It sounds like it is coming from the engine closest to the driver. The car does not lose power, the noise is not affected by RPMs, fluid levels are fine. What could it be - just a rock?

After first stop sign, the car would not move forward or backward. I cycled thru all gears in the manual transmission but wouldn't move. I thought it was the clutch, so dropped the engin and replaced the entire clutch package, pressure plate, clutch disc, bearing. No improvement. Now I wonder it something gave out in the
