Having problems with your Cars & Trucks ?

Installed a new battery and suddenly my cd player reads "error" when I insert a cd. Could this be a fuse or something? Anything I can try to fix it? I think it's part of the theft deterrent sys

Answers :

Usually a blown fuse will shutdown your radio until u get a new fuse so im not thinking fuse.... is the laser that reads cds is that clean???? if unsure they make cds with brushes on the bottom of them and as u put them in it brushes off that laser as the cd with brushes spins. or even simpler just try blowing out the inside maybe its just dirty or a cheap radio. cheap radios cause a lot of problems.... hope i helped.......

I'm having problems with the theft deterrent system. I had the theft module changed but occasionaly my car still does not start.When I try again with the spare it does not work, then after a few minutes I try again with the same key it finally does start. I'm upset with the dealership cause they still can't give me an answer on what's the problem, and i already paid for a part that I don't think is the problem and am trying to get a refund. What could it possibly be that dissables the car to sta

My truck had a vaccum belt burning smell, I replaced the fan belt and the idler pulley as recommended by parts store to fix problem. I tried to replace tension pulley also but could not get bolt loose to replace, will try again later. After belt replacement still had smell and truck did not restart. jumped truck and it started immediately, but when I tried to back out it died and would not restart again. I think the alternator is shot and that is the source of smell and starting problem, but


Sounds like your alternator. you can pull of and have tested for free at most parts stores. batteries should be ok. it is best to charge them and not just crank up and let vehicle charge them from completly dead this will cause an extreme pull on the ... 1995 Chevrolet Silverado 2500

Why the Anti theft indicator keep blinking (red) when I turn off the car (off igniition) It keeps blinking all time even when I park the car in my garage without locking car doors Was it set up that way with the car as a theft deterrent. Would it make loud sound if someone try to break in the car. Please advise me . Thanks. I worry may be it is somethings I need to bring back to dealer to fix it or adjust it to blink only when needed.

Transmission shift Ihave a 2005 Impala. The thing thats wrong with it.. is when I put it in reverse, it seems like the engines drops. I'm thinking it could be a motor mount loose, but I'm not sure, also it shifts a little bit when giving acceleration, but Not a everyday thing.. I have took to place, they say there is harsh tension when trying to put into gear. It was going to cost 590 + parts to et it fix depending on what it was. They was going to pull it out, and clean the parts off to see wha


Try putting more brake pressure on your breke peddle before you put it in gear and see if the the problem stop. If it does, it's your motor mount. As as for lucas, just bring it in for a transmission oil and filter change and they can tell you more a ... 2005 Chevrolet Impala

My pass key fault light keeps flashing on and off. Tried to crank it and it wont start. So I took it to the Chevy dealer and they told me it would be $685 to fix it cause something is wrong with my Anti-Theft Security Module. I think that is a little to much considering they are the ones who put a new Ignition cylinder in for me before this happen. Can somebody help me or give me some insight on this matter?

My 97 Jeep Cherokee Country 4 cylinder is overheating after about 8-10 minutes of being on. It is not leaking coolant. Is this the thermostat? Is it the sensor? Is it the water pump? Engine does make clanky sounds but it does have just over 207,000 miles. I tried to get the fan shroud off but the 9/16 bolt only comes out part of the way. Should I cut it off all of the way? How much do you think a mechanic would charge to fix this? Thank you. Jake


The problem that you discribe Is a fault thermostat. Also with high mileage on engine , you will have alot of piston slap noise that's common. ... 1997 Jeep Cherokee Country

Is it worth it to fix a cavalier that has been sitting in a carport for 5 years? It was working before but some tires went flat and we had problems getting title. Now we have a little money and are wondering if we should just junk it or try to sell it for parts. If it's just a matter of replacing and cleaning fluids, tires and batteries I think we could keep it. Are there more things that would be issues after sitting for so long?

P1632 Need to know if Engine Code(s) - P1630 - Theft Deterrent Learn Mode and P1632 - Theft Deterrent Fuel Disable Signal Not Received) Can be taken care of without having a dealer computer to do it? I have tried using the handheld diagnostic computer from the local auto store and no dice.

I was trying to fix the drive window regulator (window and driver rear view the only electrical parts) and tried to start the truck to go get the parts needed to fix the window. When I turn the key all of the instrument panel arms go all the way up and there is only a clicking sound that is loud. After I pull the key out some of the electrical equipment keeps turning on and off for a few seconds maybe a minute. I didn't mess with anything but the driver door panel.

I have a 2006 Nissan Altima & I broke the side mirror at commercial bank deposit. I have tried |"super glue" but got more on my fingers than the car. Also, I need to try & find out how to fix the electrical part, there is a wire "hanging" down that must go to the automated visual alignment. Still I am hopelessly lost! Please anyway that knows a way to fix this please email me @ [email protected] Thanks!


Sounds to me like you need a whole new mirror assembly. The motors that operate the mirror position are most likely damaged along with the wiring harness. There are aftermarket parts warehouses and salvage yards that can reduce your parts cost signif ... Nissan Altima

I own a 1999 GMC Safari Van and it stopped running. I can go to start it and it will act like it is going to start but doesn't. I have replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter thinking that it was a fuel problem but it did not fix the problem. I think moved on to using an OBDII and it told me no codes. I then moved on and replaced the distributor and still no fix. Does anyone have an idea for me to try for it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


It's the crankshaft position sensor, most likely bad. I just had the same problem, replaced the fuel pump, filter, plugs and wires, as soon as I replaced that fired right up. The part is around $50 and it's located under the vehicle, passenger side. ... 1999 GMC Safari

My car sometimes won't let go of my key when I shut it off. Dealer says it has to do with the theft deterrent module, but all the stuff I've read about it on the internet suggests that the theft deterrent module is a problem when the car won't start or won't stay running, not that the key won't come out when the car is in Park. Help! What part should the dealer get?


This is probably the ignition lock cylinder worn out or getting old. The TDM is most likely not locking the key in, but new cars are pretty tied into themselves. For now, just try leaving the key in. Use another one for the doors. Some cars have a s ... Pontiac Grand Prix
