having problem shuting driver door
A week ago I smelled what seemed to be electrical wires burning. Couldn't pin point it. Couple days later my heating and cooling went. it just shut off in my dashboard. which led me to think it was a short. There has also been a rattling noise sounds like bad bearing and it was coming from the compressor. Haven't had a chance to replace it due to snow but still needed it for going to work. Well now the car just died on me in the middle of an intersection. LOL note to self...NEVER IGNORE WARNINGS. Anyway had car towed home. First thing I noticed was continuous clicking from under the dashboard drivers side (thought relay or a dead battery. Had new one in trunk from night before so replaced. Clicking stopped. So I thought it had to be my alternator. (will take to Autozone for bench test) but when I tried to start the car there was just one click. Tried again, just a click. So I thought they gave me low charged battery, checked voltage, it was about 12.1. So I added my jumper box and tried again still same click I'm like really my starter might be shot? But how would that have made the car to die on me? And a dead battery. ( had bought that new one because old one needed to be jumped in cold weather) So I checked fuses with a multimeter by measuring OHMS but couldn't check relays yet. I'm sure problem lies within the first burned wires I smelled but I'm lost on where to begin looking. I thought the smell might have been near the blower motor which makes sense being as though I've been having problems with my heating/cooling. Air conditioner doesn't work And blows only from defroster. I'm guessing an actuator problem or something and didn't want to try and tackle it yet. Has anyone had similar problems with their car or know where I should start looking? It would be great! I'm comfy changing alternators and what not, but electrical problems are like nemesis. But there is a patch of ice under the car now and I don't want to go poking and prodding everywhere. Beside the fact that it's freezing out. Any bypass to the problem would be great. Meaning I have funds for alternator and starter but if I can do without the compressor for now would be Ideal for the time being. Come Payday I will Make It Rain on it lol. But my funds don't wanna waste water right now. Any advice is helpful.
We had the "water in the passenger back floor problem" (the same as others indicate). In the fixing, we believe the repair shop damaged our outside air temperature sensor (OAT). Since then our OAT consistently reads around seven (7) degrees warmer than actual (dangerous for Illinois when we have occasional freezing rain in the winter). Could it be possible that the repair shop damaged the sensor in the "fixing"? One online source states that the sensor could be located in the cowl area at the base of the windshield. This is the same location where the repair shop claimed the drain had to be cleaned of leaves and debris. So far the back floor has been dry...
To fix the wet problem, we were charged around $250.00 but they won't fix our Outside Air Temperature sensor stating they were no where near it when they fixed the drain "under the windshield" causing the back wet floor problem. They claim the OAT sensor is under the front grill.
The car is a 4 door Signature Touring Sedan.
I am also a private pilot, so any problem with my OAT sensor causes hairs on the back of my neck to stand straight up.
Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
