My focus has a light vibration and the rpm goes slightly up and down but it only does it when its on idle or when iam in a stop light. When it does that, my panel lights kind of dim out as the rpm goes up and down. I already put new motorcraft sparkplugs and new wires but still the same. I just went to check the alternator, they test it with the machine and they told me it was overcharging, they told me i need to fix the regulator. do you think that will fixed the problem? thanks

Re 1998 Ford Windstar LX. The interior lights will not shutoff. I have tried closing all doors including sliding door and liftgate (trunk) many times. I have checked above doome lights as well as the instrument panel switch which also controls the panel brightness. I have had this problem three or more times before. I have had to change the sensor, contacts cleaned and what ever the ford sevice could do to fix the problem. But its back again. Is there a permanent fix?

My 1994 chevy lumina car has a blinker problem. The right blinker and rear lights work fine. The left blinker does not light up or blink on the instrument panel and the rear lights won't flash unless I hold the lever down slightly. If I pull the lever down to the lock position, it does not blink or light up on the instrument panel and the rear lights stay lit and do not flash. Is this problem the flasher or the turn siganl switch?

My 2002 Mercury Sable Panel lights are out in the speedo/guage cluster area, but the turn signal indicator lights are both on when the light switch is turned on. The panel dimmer dims the indicator lights, but has no effect on the panel lights. All other lights that illuminate with the light switch operate normally as well. This car has the auto on/off type headlight switch. Others have had this problem as well, any solution?

I have a 2009 Camry. The dash lights are so dim during the day that I can't read the mileage or the temp. They also are very dim while driving at night. This problem just started about 3 weeks ago.

I own a 2000 Hyundai Elantra. One afternoon while driving, I noticed that the Airbag light came on & stayed lit on my dashboard panel. A couple days later, the dashboard panel lights all went out.

The headlamp & directional light work. We tried to troubleshoot the situation. I went to Advance Auto & purchased new fuses - 1

Turing the light wheel on the panel gets it to come on at times but then the speedometer or RPM gauge don't work. My garage guy told me to buy a new light switch which cost around $100 and that SHOULD fix the problem. That's a high price to pay for a possible fix. Any ideas?

So as I'm driving the I can feel the A/C turning off and on, the lights begin to flicker, which affects my engines performance while driving.

After awhile it did it again but I never took it back and just neglected the problem. So I decided to get it fixed li
