My car will start bt for a cple seconds n thn it shuts off bcz of the anti theft what do i do

So my friend plugged her phone charger into the outlet, it smelled like it was burning. we quickly took it out, and then noticed NOTHING works in the dash. The clock, the radio, and when I turn on the air, it will blow in the back of the van but not in the front, Is there a fuse that was blown? or is it a bigger problem?

not running smooth like it was before. drives like the wheels are unbalance and there is something wrong with the transmission.feel the problem is the power pack and spark plug wires, maybe need replacing?

no heat I got a blower motor and its not that what could it be need help

engine light came on...mechanic said the code was for a loose speedometer cable and said to take it to a transmission shop....speedometer goes crazy,will go in reverse after 30 sec or so and a jerk..trb over 50 mphs..transmission shop said my vechile doesn't have a cable and to bring it in.

they say the wires are broken and I can't afford to fix, especially since they say the motor might soon give out. Right now it is extremely difficult to open and close manually, like you're going against the "grain". Can they be configured to open safely, all the time, manually and by-pass the electronics? This happens most of the time on the passenger side, occasionally on the drivers side. The lock/unlock rarely works automatically on the passenger side, making it impossible to open automatically until you manually unlock the door.

I installed a new JVC stereo using a wiring harness. The power comes on, the CD plays, but there is no sound. If I uncouple the harness and then plug in the OEM stereo and let it turn on and play that CD you can hear sound. Now, here is the weird part, if I unplug the stock/OEM stereo and then plug in the JVC harness I get sound. Problem is when I turn off car I am back to power with no sound and I have to go through the process of uncoupling the JVC, hooking up OEM and the uncoupling that to hook up JVC and get sound

I have lost a total of four covers. Both sides twice. The remaining one is held on by duct tape and that's the only reason it is not gone. The left one is gone, for the second time, and is covered with red tape to a avoid getting yet another ticket. I can't believe I didn't see a single entry about this. Maybe I just got a lemon!

This has never happened at any other time, and only lasts a minute or two. I have never had trouble starting the van. No warning lights appear. I brought it to a new mechanic who diagnosed a fuel pump leak and is charging me $850 to replace it. I asked if it could just be the fuel filter, and he said the pump's leaking gas, which could potentially be dangerous, so it needs to be replaced. Does this sound like a rip off?
