replaced alternator, replaced battery. started little things over time that might be computer. Drove great across town. on way back started acting like battery dead. Than lights and gauges stopped followed by car not shifting and sputtering. pulled to side towed home. Initially restarted and ran but again nothing electrical was working.
I also noticed my left rear wheel won't stop spinning when I apply the brakes, when jacked -up on the jack stands, but all the other wheels do. And all the other wheels bleed the proper amount of brake fluid. when bled. Thanks

The lid open light on the dashboard and the rear compartment light stay on 24/7. Will replacing the latch cause the lights to operate properly? Also what is the average cost to replace the lid latch, parts and labor?
I was happily driving and jamming one morning in the mile high city when I stopped for a red light signal. My car died and long story short the clutch master cylinder needed to be replaced, DONE!! Now she wont start, no sound, nada. Lights and stereo do come on, I just replaced the battery, cleaned up the corrosion and honestly checked only 4 fuses, then started crying... Help. Fuses to starter were not blown, got a jumpstart too. No luck. Cars been down for 2 months and i started her twice no problem... Please guide me I need to roll. Thanks. P.S. Slim help from opposite sex here,paper pushers... in girl code please lol.

What else might it be
I need to smog this kIa spectra. Its a 2004. When trying to plug in the little orange code reading, no power comes thru to the code reading. What main fuse could control the power to the reading?
My neighbor read the codes for me and it said something about the o2 sensor and missing but he cleared them and then unplugged the upstream o2 for a few and it started but then died again and now it won't start at all
Apparently, the plastic cover that runs over the top of my engine, protecting the coils, is missing. So, when my bf pressure washed the engine compartment, water submerged the spark plug wire boots. Like I said in an earlier post, I drove it about 6 miles as it progressively began sputtering, hesitating, knocking and CEL began flashing. Parked it... and smelled rotten eggs. Read a code P0301. Bf checked the coils and wires and found everything submerged. #1 boot was not sealed as it should have been. Bf dried everything and sealed #1 boot to spark plug. Cleared the code, car ran fine. Later on, took the car to the store and all the symptoms, incl. flashing CEL, and rotten egg smell returned. Could it have damaged the coil pack?
