Working backwards:
1)This morning when turning the ignition switch all the dashboard lights flash and the headlights flash along with a clicking noise but the engine won't turn over.
2) Yesterday the warning message panel went through an entire series of random warnings of numerous falts when I started the car. I had to turn the car off and restart the car and no messages were there the second time.
3) Five days ago when I started my car I saw a transmission fault message. The car popped into reverse, I backed out, popped into drive. Turned off engine and after restarting it popped into drive. Could not get out of first gear no matter what I tried so I drove at 32miles per hour at 2000 rpm for an errand. Drove back home, parked, 40 minutes later restarted car and everything was perfect with transmission.
4) one more item, many times lately when I first start the car, I get a buzzing noise from the speedometer and the needle shakes and vibrates at the below 0 mph indicator.
Is the computer going bad, the electrical, a combination?

I just last week replaced alternator and battery at dealer, 3 days driving and now this happens. The loud click/snap is coming from engine compartment, seems like from underside of engine.

I need to get the hood open and I have no idea how to get the passenger side to release. this just happened today

Battery is fine

Having issues with the fuel pump and I want to eliminate this part from the checks

not play even after following instructions of "wait / code" several times. Disconnected and tried several more times still won't play. Added disc player in trunk has power but will not play either?

Help!!!

However it still doesn't work. It has happened in the past and all of a sudden it works. I looked like a hero in the past because it started working while I had the car. So now my wife is asking what did you do last time, well I have no idea it just started working..... Please help.

I see 2 lines but I can only hook up to one of them and it seems to be the high side. is this the correct line? I am unable to see witch line goes to the compressor. I also could be looking at the wrong lines..

I'm just wondering if my transmission is shifting correctly; my car registers 2400 rpm at 70 mph; it seems a little high; what should it be? Maybe I'm spoiled by my wife's 2013 XF which is only 1800 rpm at 75 mph!

had front end checked out appeared ok, what could it be

I parked my car yesterday and then tried to start it and it would only run for a few seconds and it ran rough those few seconds. The check engine light and battery light was on during those few seconds. I don't know technical stuff but also the fail safe engine mode light was coming on at certain times but the car was running great until yesterday.

engine light on all the time. Restrictive performance goes on and off.

It is a toggle switch that seems to engage disengage on it's own. Driving and turned off. There is no fuse for this. This has been a small problem until now. It just seems to get worse.

I had crankshat and water pump and new battery hard to start and will not start

I did not hear a thing. Car just would not start. Now, need whole new engine. WHAT!

The person I bought it from states it use to work. He stored it at a friends house for a while and when he returned it the trunk would not open. When I push valet on the dash it shows valet mode. When I push the trunk release it shows valet mode as well.

ENGINE HAS RESTRICTED PERFORMANCE LIGHT ON

you test the system to locate problem i did hear air escaping at the left rear when car was turned off and i noticed the dust cover is split on the rear shocks

For some time now, my car is showing a constant amber warning light for the airbag. Is this likely to be real fault or a fault on the circuitry? If it is the latter, how can I reset it?
