Light came on while driving.

Whenevereer I turn car on, there is a sound coming from behind center instrument console. Sounds is like a switch trying to turn on, or more like CD changer shuffling CDs. However, I removed CD unit.

A/C fan is always running high. I cannot change fan speed.

Was told the engine computer needed replacement.

The lower (foot-level) AC/heat vents and most of the defrost vents have completely stopped working. I still get plenty of air from the main vents, but it only blows from there, regardless of the fan settings.

When I lock or unlock the car non-manually, some doors respond and others do not. The driver's side door is particularly inconsistent.

how can I gain access to tail lights, not the tail gait ones

the air conditioning is running fine but even after replaceing blend door motor still no heat operating ?

every morning when I start my 1999 lexus rx300 car, alot of blue smoke comes out of the exhaust. I just bought this car about 2 months ago with 55,000 miles now I have 56,000 miles on it.
The interior of the car is in excellent shape. According to the previous owner, his grandfather drove the car.

I only have 84k miles on it. I have had it for 10 yrs now and have had all service checks, oil changed. I don't know if I should put this money into it or not? My mechanic said around 4k in repairs and he couldn't do the heat and a/c and bring to dealer. If I put this in, is the tranny going to go?

The shifter is not locking into place. If you have your hand on the shifter while driving or driveway with your foot on the brake the shifter will slip easily into neutral but not reverse. What is this? hoping it is not related to transmision.

How much should it cost to have 2 catalytic converters and an oxygen sensor replaced?

My car will start only if my foot is on the gas pedal to keep the RPMs up. Once my foot is taken off the gas pedal, the RPMs will go all the way down and the vehichle shuts off. What can I do to possibly fix it....I am not mechanically savvy, but can try before I spend alot $$$ on repairs.

My A/C is working, in the sense that it is blowing cold air. Yesterday while the car was running, it just randomly auto-changed (best way to describe it) and no longer responds to my changing of the knobs/desired output of A/C.
After some simple googling it seems it 'could' be the resistor? Or is it a problem with the digital display? Thank you.

When I use my remote to lock doors, driver's side does not lock. I have to lock manually with key. Is this due to faulty actuator? If so, is it easy to repair? What is cost for material and labor?
