My horn has stopped working three times now. When I double tap the fob I hear something click near the fuse/relay box under the hood. My temp gauge quit working for a week and mysteriously started working again. I have to tape the shifter for the letter to illuminate. And most recently the volume has begun to stick. If I tap it, when it gets stuck it will work. Also, I just replaced the front and back brake pads and when I applied the brakes at speeds over 35 the car shutters and I can hear a slight nocking.

A few months ago, my drivers side window would stop rolling back up every once in a while. It rolls down fine, just doesn't want to go back up. After a few minutes of repeatedly pressing the button, it would go back up. Then one day, it went down and refused to go back up so I took it to a shop and they replaced the motor and regulator. It worked fine for a month or so and now the problem is back. Not only that, now the passenger side window will not roll up from the driver side buttons. I have to use the passenger side buttons to get it back up (Rolls down fine). What's the matter? And if I take it back to the same shop will they charge me again??

Any others experienced this?

Cleaned rust on plug; some rust on connector plate--sprayed cleaner. Originally only 1 light out. It keeps changing but right now my parking light and turn signal is working where my turn signal is supposed to work; neither parking light slot is working or backup light. Replaced connector plate with after market Dorman plate--plug would not fit and put old plate back in so I would at least have some light on that side. Noticed turn signal light on dashboard is faintly green and blinking slow only when car is running. What is your suggestion or should I just take it to a repair shop? It blew one fuse and a relay and I replaced both. Recently my door locks also started acting up as well.

Engine light came on 24 hrs ago and is still on. checked gas cap, it is secure. Had engine checked at Advance Auto

It will start and stall after few mins idling. Sounds like a tapping the higher it idles the faster it taps and I saw puff white smoke come from the valve cover as it stalled. Was thinking bad valve cover gasket and oil on spark plugs. Has been very reliable car until just recently. Now stalls sometimes when it's put into gear. Not sure what to start with!
