The turn signal switch in the steering column may fail causing the turn signals not to work on one or both sides.

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

i recently replaced my heater core in a 2001 pontiac sunfire and now one the heater core hoses is leaking is it possible the heater core is not in stalled all the way thru the fire wall?

I took out the ignition switch in my car but now the switch is locked in the column so I can't put it back together.

I have tried holding buttons 1 and 2 down together but the radio doesn't respond. I have also tried all the other 2 button combinations but still nothing. It will not give me a code. It just says "LOCKED" on the screen.
