Sometimes when I start the car, the seatbelt light stays on, and I then know that the radio won't work, the steering wheel will move up and down while driving, the windshield wipers won't work, the powersteering becomes sluggish, and the ABS and Brake lights may come on. Then the next time I start the car it will be fine. Any ideas?
