Light switch is so on auto the low beams do not work but flick the lever to switch to high beam and they come on.

This morning the check engine light came one followed by the reduced engine power light. I turned it off, waited a few minutes, and turned it back on, drove fine. Went out for lunch, reduced engine power again, can't go anywhere... Any idea what could be wrong?

I took my suv in to have the dome light replaced last week. the service technician replaced a smaller bulb and rewired to make the light workable. three days later the vehicle would not start. jump started and returned back to dealership. technician advise its not the light, and still running diagnostics to figure out what is pulling the battery.

How to trouble shoot?

2006 Chevy Equinox 6 cylinder, the check engine light stays on. After starting my car it jerks very hard in Drive, Park and backing gears. After driving about 20 min the Traction control light comes on and after this light is on whenever I come to a complete stop and pull off again the car is moving very slowly with the engine roaring. After about 2 min the speed is okay but it still jerks about every 15 to 20 min or maybe 40 min. One shop told me my car has major electrical problems. I took it to Firestone they ran a diagnosis for the Traction control and told me there are some issues with the Transmission and I needed to take it to the dealership as they don’t work on transmissions. The heater blows out cold air and does not get warm or hot, had a new thermostat put on, but still don’t work, AC is good. The diagnosis codes from the Traction control are PO700, C0276 00, PO962 00, PO983 00. Please advise how much this cost. I’m Layoff and can’t afford another car.

It just appeared one day and I can't seem to see anything under the hood with a leak.

I had my windshield replaced last week & noticed that the
light on the dashboard goes on when locked, and stays on.
I have had this car over a year, and never noticed it staying on all the time. Was this caused by replacing the windshield? If not, what should I do?

I had a little accident and it loos that is not passing gasoline.

i have taken this to the mechanic 3 times and still have the same lights on. Is it possible to fix this problem myself? Auto zone gave me a code of p0404

When it was brought out if you try to roll it, its always stiff only the air-condition fan rolls both manually and when you start the engine. what can be wrong?

2. Which other coolant can i use since we dont have DEX COOL in nIgeria

It is the front bumper cover.

decrease it again.?

I have to turn the defrost off every time. It is not being left on when turning the car off.

The washer fluid tank has been filled twice. There is fluid leaked on the driver's side of the 2007 chevrolet equinox Lt.

this a 2 wheel drive

this a3 wheel drive.would it be a strut

i'm driving

This includes the costs of spark plugs, cleaning surrounding parts, etc.

Also all fluids are full. Engine is not hot

My needle shows the tank is always full and I know I only have at most a half a tank of gas in there. Is this an expensive repair and what is involved? When I turn engine off it goes to about the half way mark.

So my daughter's boyfriend's father replaced my front struts 6 months ago. He just did the struts & new caps. The spring broke in the front right strut 3 months ago. I haven't been able to afford repair. I have to take my daughter to her Lyme disease specialist this week (it is a 6 hr drive). His father was going to just replace springs for me at no charge, but my daughter and her boyfriend haven't been getting along, so he says he won't do it now-leaving me hanging right before our trip. Can I just have front right spring replaced? Do both front springs need replacing? I CANNOT afford a lot as total expenses for my daughter's appt. are almost $1,000. I've checked quick strut assembly and they are like $267 each. Also, will the car need re-alignment? I paid $130 to have it aligned after the new struts went in 6 months ago. I NEED ADVICE!!!! THANKS :)

My car has over 115000 miles, but it doesn't really bounce that much

The passenger side works find. Recently my right thigh has been getting extremely hot. Tried rubbing the seat to move the coil then I noticed the problem.

As soon as I turn my engine on, says that I can not use my ac because my engine is too hot. The temperature gauge is not working. What could be the issue?

the vehicle stays running. have to unhook the battery

Replaced thermostat and water pump. No water in oil.

I have brojen 3 cv axle because it seems as though it not fitting right...what could be yhe problem

My wife bought this car new in 2004. It has 178,000 on it; the LKQ motor we bought when the original motor blew has about 40,000 less on it.

I'll say up front that I don't know how many of these symptoms are related to each other:

The cruise control in this car hasn't functioned completely since I've had this car. I can set the speed and slow down, but I cannot use the cruise control switch to increase speed. Not that I depend on that, but I've noticed that it doesn't work.

We replaced the alternator a year ago this week.

I replaced the left headlamp bulb six months ago. Shortly after that, my dash lights dimmed each time I touched the brake pedal. Then when I was parked in front of a window and could see my reflection, I noticed that the tiny running lights above the headlights also dimmed when I touched the brake pedal. Didn't investigate it; thought it was just another quirk of the car.

A month ago, someone in traffic pointed out that I had a rear brake light out. It's the upper light of two on the left side. I pulled the assembly and replaced the bulb - and with the fresh bulb in that socket, only THAT bulb illuminates when I touch the brakes - not the other side or the top. I replaced the old bulb in the socket, on the idea that having 4 out of 5 brake lights working was better than 1 out of 5.

Then last week someone else in traffic pointed out that that our (remaining) brake lights were always on, regardless of whether I was touching the brake. Looking for an easy fix, I replaced the brake light switch but nothing changed. I've also discovered that the brake lights only stay on when the headlights are on. When the sun comes up and shines enough to turn off the headlights, we're back to normally functioning brake lights (and the dimming dash panel).

Turning the headlights off from the switch on the column doesn't change anything; if the sensor says the lights *should* be on, then the brake lights are on.

And here's why I brought up the cruise control at the beginning. This may have been the case all along and I hadn't realized it, but the cruise control (such as it is) only functions when the headlights are off. It will not function when the headlights (and now the brake lights) are on.

Yesterday the front dome light in the Equinox stopped working. I'm assuming it's just burned out and needs to be replaced, but at this point I don't know.

Where do I go from here?

I've heard that a lot of people have had issues w/ this. My service stabilitrak light comes on and reduces power to the engine. It's at the shop now and they are replacing a part that isn't under warranty. My car is 3 years old w/ 60000 miles on it. I'm concerned because i've heard that people continue to have these issues once this problem arises? Any info out there would help. Thank-you
