I started my car (after buying a new battery last week that was larger than the factory one I had) and suddenly my heater is on high and cannot be adjusted or turned off & my radio won't turn on?
It took the mechanic 4 hrs to find it's a sensor in the middle panel (and now can't find the part and said it may need to be built at the factory) so my questions are:
- Does 4 hrs to find the problem seem like a long time?
- Should the part be so hard to replace?
- Could the stronger battery be to blame?
This is a new mechanic for me (I just moved to town) and I'm starting to doubt that I should have trusted my brothers referral.
Thanks in advance for your help. Judi

Is it normal for the a/c compressor to cycle on newer vehicles? Compressor on 2011 Ford Taurus cycles on and off. Occasionally blows out warm air then goes back to cool.

The right side of the road stays in the dark; you can't see the edge of the road, or any items in the road. Does anyone know of a service/technical/recall bulletin?
