aftter a long ride (highway 50-70km) with my car looses power (does not turn off)and requires between 5 to 15 min rest to continue

What would that be? It shakes a little bit when you turn but that's it can you help me?

It won't turn over it doesn't even click I have full power to my battery all lights come on and it doesn't start

When it goes to red it only stays there for a little bit, then goes back to halfway. Does anybody know what would cause this?

I replaced the stock radio system and put a aftermarket system in. Used some of the wire to power the radio, but others are taped off to the side. But after a few days, lights started messing up. When I turned the ignition over, the low beams came on and all the brake lights illuminated and stayed on. I have no turn signals, no hazards, no high beams, no fog lights, and no rear license plate light. The computer where the speedometer and gauges are don't work either.

I even changed the fuel line and the wire harness with the one the engine came with now it won't start at all

I'm hoping that it is a problem with the automatic settings for each driver. Problem is that the door switch is broken. Disconnect it to fix problem???

battery always going dead can't put transmission from manual to automatic the button wont work properly

I ran the engine for 5min, I turned it off because it was smelling hot. it was leaking lots and lots of water. the radiator has water. the ac was not on
