Bought a new battery and alternator, had a mechanic to replace and why does the battery light still comes on and off while driving? Thanks
how do you get the side door panel off?
I have a battery light ON in my Ford focus 2007 ST
4 months back, I changed the compressor because the clutch was not engaging.
Two days back I changed my tensioner and serpentine belt because my local mechanic told me that the belt was slipping and oil spilled on the belt because of the valve cover gasket leak. I replaced the gasket too.
I'm getting this battery light. So I replaced a new battery under warranty.
Now when I looked at the compressor clutch, it seems to engage and disengage intermittently. Alternator and battery is tested in autozone. The alternator is fine. They said the battery is not good. But it's a new battery.
There is a electrical issue problem, something related to alternator-compressor-battery circuit.
My trunk will not open with the key Can I get in the trunk thru the back seat
bought the 2014 car in Dec 2015 from a Ford dealer. the car only had 30 miles on it but it was new. it now has 15000 miles and the struts have to be replaced?
Also it's been 2days and not yet finished...why?
I feel like I have to replace my brakes every 2 years during inspection time and it feels like such a short period of time.
I replaced my battery in early 2013 and just recently I had to get it jumped when it wouldn't turn over when I tried starting it.
I have noticed recently that while my air conditioner does work, the air isn't as cold as it use to be.
The car is set up so that I do not have a gas cap. I just close the lid.
I heard that it should be either every 5,000 miles or 3,000 miles.
I just bought it. Whenever I accelerate, it jerks.
If I have 1 tire from one brand and 3 from another, as long as they're the same size, will that affect my gas mileage negatively?
Is there anything I can do during my daily driving to prevent the car from going out of alignment?
My car intermittently cuts off the audio, even when nothing is playing. What I mean by this is that a popping sound happens, and then after that, the stereo won't make any noise until I turn the car off and then back on again.
Only happens when I hit a bump.
The panel under the engine compartment is falling apart. Do I need to replace it or can I just leave it off?
The driver's side tire has outer wear, but passenger side has no unusual wear.
Repair shops (2) can't find any leaks.
What mileage would it need to be done at
Does not happen all the time
I can talk but it will not recognize the numbers i am saying
Want to change my shifter knob need to know how to do it
Strong vibration threw steering wheel and dash when wheels are cranked to the right. It doesn't matter if your in motion or sitting still. Just has to be in drive and wheels turned to the right
Starter was replaced with a new one and the same issue exist. Could this be the battery or a relay of some type? Thank you!
I am looking for some advice on our 2 family cars. One is a 2009 Ford Focus with 68,000 miles, it is completely paid off! The other is a 2012 Subaru Outback with less than 40,000 miles but we have 4-5 years of payments left on it.
I run my own business so I work from home and commute to a local office- 4 minute drive away. I also run the errands like grocery shopping etc but everything is very close to us.
My husband works for a hospital 40 minutes away and goes to school 30 minutes away.
Who should use which car? And what is smartest financially? My husband WANTS to use the Outback because he likes it better. I want to use the Outback because of the easier to use trunk space for errand running plus my thought is the newer car should be used less? My husband drives a lot more miles than me so is it smarter for him to use the Focus that is paid off? Or should he be driving the newer car? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Out of nowhere my car just would not start it acts like dead battery. I had it tested and alt and starter too they were all okay. Then i get in and it wil start no problem. I turn it off at the store and it would not start retestdd battery still 94 % charged. I get in 15 mins. Later and it starts just fine. Next day first thing in the morning would not start. What is going on? No check engine light is on. Nothing else seems wrong what is it?
Rides a little "bouncy", but inspection indicates springs / shocks are adequate.
The car has been running fine. went to start the car and the key will not turn, the steering wheel is LOCKED and won't unlock.
Overdrive light off is on
I have to forcefully turn the key while pushing in to start the car. It is extremely hard for me to do this because I gave RA. The problem is getting worse.
