1989 240 DL electrical anomoly with overdrive
I have a 1989 240 DL wagon which exhibits the following problems:
When the key is turned to ON, only the yellow overdrive arrow light comes on the instrument panel. Pushing the OD button on the automatic transmission does cycle the light on and off. NONE of the normal engine oil, battery, or other lights come on. The bulbs check good with an ohmmeter. The car will start and run, but none of the gages register (speedo, fuel, temp, etc.); but the alternator does NOT put out any charge. I had the alternator tested at a local NAPA auto parts store; they advised replacement- which I did. It made NO DIFFERENCE. After driving it for approx. 15-20 minutes, the red BATT light comes on- and weakly flashes. Coincident with that, the speedo, fuel, and temp gages show some readout- but not a correct/ normal indication. The car wil shift in and out of overdrive- but the yellow arrow is ON when it is in overdrive (4th), and OFF when it is in 3rd- just the OPPOSITE of normal! What the hell is going on here?

I just bought my 96 prizm, I was driving it home ( brakes are bad ) so as I went slow down I put the car in neutral and pulled emergency brake, stopped. Went to put it back in gear and it wouldn't move. I can move the shifter to any gear. But the car isn't changing gear. And I can roll while the car says it's In park.
The trans shifted smooth all the way home. Didn't jerk or anything
Now if I start the car put it in drive try to go it wont, and when I go back to put it in park it sounds like I'm grinding a gear in a 5speed. If I go from park to neutral and back to park it doesn't grind.
I have a 2003 grand Cherokee jeep it was working good except for a ticking noise in the engine then the next day I go to start it it will crank but won't start and the key symbol comes on everyone I talk to says it not the key and I only got one key when I bought it not sure what could be wrong with it
Problem only occurs in cool climate. When ambient temp is above 75 degrees, everything works fine.
My shifter will not come out of park. It is as if it is frozen in park an will not move.
Makes a terrible noise from front end when in 4wd
it has been burning oil since I got it but now it is losing power when I accelerate. I put oil in it when it was low. I tried a thicker kind now it wont climb hills. no power. too much oil or maybe need oil change? Or what ?
