For 2 days now, my 2002 Saturn SL2 door locks have given me trouble. When I open the doors by remote, only the driver's door opens. When I exit the car and press the close button on the remote, no doors would be locked, and the back doors (first the right https://www.fixya.com/Images/BrowseProject/throbber.gifdoor, then the left, then both doors) would start fluttering and producing a tapping sound. The fluttering happens as soon as car starts and stays until minutes after the car is turned off.

I have a 2003 Mercedes ML320. The other day when I was getting out of my car, I folded in the mirrors, opened my door, and it started beeping at me, like the beeping if the lights were on or something. I made sure the lights were off and the doors were closed, but it kept beeping. And now the alarm wont work, the keyless entry remote doesnt function at all. The only way to lock the doors is to use the button inside the car and then lock the door with the key on the outside for the drivers door.


Hello\015\012The systems that control all this are the keyless entry module and or the Body Control Module, the test gear required to read codes in this system is a dealer level tool and not the one that just plugs in and reads the engine and t ... 2003 Mercedes-Benz M-Class

I have a 1997 Grand Marquis with the powewr moonroof. The moonroof was in the "vent" position, and when I triued to close the moonroof it started down, but instead of closing it proceeded to open all the way. If I hit the "close" switch I can hear a relay cvlicking in the headliner. It is stuck in the open position. Is this a switch problem-since it opened when the "close" buttron was hit, or a relay problem? And how would I replace either? Thanks for your help.

My 2005 Civic overheated for the first time when I was at a light the other day. I turned the car off and opened the hood and of course the first thing I thought it was that I needed coolant and I didn't have any. A good Samaritan stopped by and poured some into the engine and I had a water bottle which I also poured into the radiator. The car would not start and he gave me a jump start. I managed to get home (1/2 away). The next day I filled it up with coolant and noticed that the car was

I have a 2002 Saturn Vue, 2.2L. We replaced the engine, and the car has been running fine for the past 2 weeks. We got up this morning, started the car, let it warm up, ran a few errands, had no issues at all. Stopped at the last store of the day, when we came out, go into the car, it wouldnt start. It doesnt even act like it wants to start! It makes a clicking noise at the fuse box, and the throttle seems to be opening and closing, but nothing else! What is the problem!??????
