My 2002 Montero started to emit high pitched sounds with no consistancy .coming from the driver side dash area,.driving , turning braking...no rhyme or reason, my mechanic checked it over but he can's simulate the sound when the car is on the lift to figure out what causes it. Also and possibly related the anti loc break light comes on when I start the car as it always did but the abs alarm sound goes off then both light and alarm stop . I never had the abs alarm sound before . Do I need to go t

I have a Ford Escape XLT, 6 cylinder, 2002 model, and this warning light comes on, on the dash. The problem is, that it only comes on intermittedly after the car has been started, but once it's on, it says on for a long period of time. I have been advised by a mechanic that the Oxygen Sensors could need to be replaced, and apparently in this model of car there are two of these sensors. Do you agree with this, or do you think it may be something else? The car has done over 200,000 kms.
Hello! No, I disagree...The warning light is the Check Engine Light (CEL)...When it comes on it is the computer telling you that a trouble code/codes have been stored...There is a lengthy list of codes...Take the vehicle to an auto parts store and ha ... Ford Escape
A code APPEARED ON THE DASH IT WAS P1684 done. I need to know what that means. The car has been turning it self off, sometimes the oil light comes on but the car has had a recent oil change. It cranks but does not fire. After sitting a while it will start again. HELP
P1684 is "the battery has been disconnected within the last 50 starts".. I would start by inspecting your battery cables and have the battery itself tested. ... 1999 Chrysler 300M

Not sure if cambelt has been replaced on my 1999 vw golf gti it has just turned 100.000 km and was imported at 70.000km . I have just bought the car . Is there a light that comes on on the dash board to let u know it needs done? thanks regards Kev
No light for that. This is a fairly expensive procedure on most VWs so it probably has not been changed. I hesitate to suggest this, but the timing belt will probably be ok long past 100,000 km. My current timing belt on a Ford F150 has well over 2 ... Volkswagen Golf

Replaced 2007 Mitisubishi raider truck speedomerter cluster - was having problems with engine light, abs brake lights coming on for no reason.. Took the truck in several times for this problem. Finally the mechanic said the speedometer cluster was bad and needed replacing which we had done. We are still having the same problem after replacing the speedometer cluster. The lights come on for no reason and they go off and will stay off for several days and then they come back on. Any suggestion

But they can't test the car because no lights are working on the inside dash. Thanks Tilly

You responded to my 2000 (actually its a 2001) olds Intrigue problem of all dash board lights coming on after the car is warm/hot.(about 30 minutes of driving before they come on) Codes were checked at GM dealer and it came back to the ABS breaks. Tech said he did a pin test and that I have a bad ABS module (EBCM)($1,100) and if that doesn't fix it I may also need a $1,300 hydralics valve assembly. and that should get the dash lights off. Breaks work fine otherwise. Also the steering gets "heav
Seems like you already know what's wrong, what you need is to fix it for less money. First, find out if your car came without abs. If so, you could then remove the system and install non abs system very cheaply. If it only came with abs then your oth ... Oldsmobile Intrigue
My 01 Alero's radio & dash lights(all) come back on after I've turned the car off, removed key, & exited the car. When put on a diagnostics machine "no codes" resulted. This continually happening has caused the battery to run down & need a jump if the car has been left overnight or for a few hours. Is there a fuse needing to be replaced? Need to be reset? Is this something I can fix or must it be serviced?

I get a jump and the car's Service Engine Soon comes on. What the heck is wrong with my car???? The bad thing is is that I just bought it not even a month ago.

I have a 96 VW Jetta. Last night I tried to unlock the car with the key. The key would turn in the lock but the automatic locks did not disengage. A friend ran a wire down inside the door and pulled the lock up. This set off the alarm. Now the when the key is in the ignition and I try to start it, the dash lights come on but the car makes no effort to turn over. The hazard lights also begin flashing. Jumping the battery made no difference. I don't know what I need to do to start my car.
Hi! Please try this. Disconnect the battery connectors of the car and let it sit for 30mins. This should reset the car's system. Turn it on after 30mins and see how it goes. Hope this helps and have a good one! ... 1996 Volkswagen Jetta
2003 4 cyl Camry 90,000 miles Headlights, dash lights etc. come on but car does not start or turn over (nor even make a click noise). Doesn't seem like its the battery as at no time did it turn over until the battery wore down. It was running perfectly then just wouldn't start. I noticed yesterday that it didn't start on first try (ie: lights & dash lights came on but nothing else) but did start normally on second try. Now doesn't start at all. Could this be a solenoid problem or maybe need a n

When i press the brakes the back up lights on my dash beside the speedo come on along with battery lights. when i increase rpms the car gets a big boost of power and lights go out. my battey is testing over 12 v and my alt is putting out 10 amps and 12.6 v and a slow draw occurs until the car stalls. what would cause this sort of draw?
Looks like the alternator did not give enough output. you should have 13v++ and under load the output should increase to 14v to 16v depend on load. ... 1993 Toyota Camry V6
Why is my check engine light on my 1991 honda accord? I replaced the throttle positon sensor on my car because i took it to the transmission place and they said the code came up that it needed to be replaced. ok i just spent $400 and the check engine light is still on, and the s light on the dash is still coming on. Even with 250,000 miles on my car it has to be a solution to my problem

1999 Volvo S80 2.9 auto I hadn't used the car for 4 weeks & the battery had gone flat. Once charged I notice the heater/ AC didn't work & the console lights don't come on, also the drive selector lights (next to the gear stick)don't work. I read elsewhere that the ECM needs a reset & this is done by locking & unlocking the car using the remote key - this didn't work. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanx
Try disconnecting both battery terminals and touching them together for about 30 seconds. This will drain capacitors and any stored power in the modules(or computers). When a battery goes dead and modules are deprived of proper voltage they make funn ... 2000 Volvo S80
'96 Chevy Astro van -- check engine light comes on and car starts to hold back and shake. replaced crankshaft sensor, air flow sensor, did extensive tune-up -- everything new -- wires, plugs, cap, rotor etc. -- timing - cleaned out distributor --runs good for a while -- then, usually at stop light with car running and foot on brake, for no reason, it starts to hold back and act like it is going to shut down. Mechanics are stymied. They have done everything and cannot find the problem. HELP
