after I changed my alternator the air bag light comes on and the windows and the heater and ac blower don't work plus the turn signals but the hazards do , it always fixed it self after restarting the car a few times but my wife hit a really big bump in the road going kinda fast and it started doing it again and now wont go away I checked the fuses and the relays that go to those thing in the fuse box I am guessing now to check the switches and the flasher for the turn signals what else should I check

    If all of those electrical components cut out at the same time it has to be something that supplies power to all of them. If you checked fuses and they were good, it could be a relay, electrical connection, or a computer module fault or failure. That vehicle communicates on a CAN bus, if anything fails on the bus, it can sometimes take down a portion, or the whole thing. You will need a diagnosis by a professional repair center to figure that one out. They will also need to have the ability to re- flash / program control units as well.

    My intredid does the same thing.So this is what you have to do adjust the steering wheel up and down until the light goes out then everything will start to work again.It's some kindof short but thats what I did and it worked fine.But it will drive you crazy because it might do it several times in one road trip.But if you don't the anti lock brakes put pressure on the drums when the light stays on.
