They have been coming on along with the turn signals for 2 weeks now. The handle is sometimes hot to the touch and the steering wheel column smokes occasionally inside the car. I had to get it jumped this morning because it ran down my battery, the brights stay on even when the car is turned off. Now my radio isn't working either. What should I do?
I was driving my car to work and it died. It started back up and did fine. When I got to work and parked, and turned the car off, I tried to turn it back on and it would not start. It makes the "rrrrr, rrrrrr, rrrrrr" sound, it just won't turn over. I checked to see if I heard the fuel pump kicking on and did not, so I assumed my fuel pump was out. I dropped the gas tank and got to the fuel pump and it was NOT kicking on. However, I had the fuel pump tested and it is good. My problem is that the electrical connector that you plug the fuel pump into under the seats, is not putting out any electric, therefore, not kicking the pump on. The only thing that anyone has told me it may be is the ASD relay switch...but I don't even know where that is located. According to a Hayne's manual, it says the ASD relay switch is a little black box located in the fuse box...but all that is in the fuse box is a 20 amp fuse that says ASD fuse...is that the same thing? Also, I am not getting any spark when I try to start the car, but was also told that the ASD relay switch would stop spark too. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I AM NOT ABLE TO PUT CAR IN REVERSE. WHEN TURNED OFF, WITH IGNITION TURNED, I HEAR A SOUND UNDER THE HOOD, . WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES, ITS A LITTLE STIFF AND TIGHT. I HEARD IT MAY BE THE BRAKE SWITCH?

1998 Sentra 1.6 Ltr. 85,000 miles. Changed serpentine drive belt 6 months ago. Now, when engine is cold, belt squeaks loudly if car is not started for a day or so. After 10-15 minutes of driving, squeak stops. Belt checked by my mechanic and myself. It is not worn or loose. If I trickled a couple of drops of water on the smooth, non-grooved side of the belt where it rides on the tensioner, the squeak goes away, but almost immediately returns. Is there a common problem with these cars and the tensioner, or could my alternator be going bad, or was it just a cheap belt? My mechanic did the belt and he uses good quality parts. Should only Nissan belt be used? I've had the car for years and never had this problem before.
It don't happen at any specific times seems to b worse when under a quarter tank of gas I replaced the spark plugs.
