the horn located on my steering wheel is beeping randomly without me touching it. not constant. only when driving and random

This is a correction to question which inadvertently wrote `seat belt' symbol.

How do I get the cruise control to go up or down by 1 or 2 mile increments. It only goes up or down by 5 mile increments. I have the 2.5i touring model.

Happens only at low speed

now the clock went out, will not work with battery reconnect- now door ajar light is always on and security light flashes off and on- is it a problem with the car's computer or something else?

question about my 2017 legacy

We found in it but i never had alarm just regualr key what do we do

Its a 2003 forester i own looking to replace it with a 2004 outback windshield

anybody knows where this sensor is? computer comes up with an error. thanks. DCT code 26

It occurs always. I have to unhook battery to get lights to go out.

When I twist the dail on the light signal, the dashlights won't come on.

new battery. Car turns over but won't start. All lights on the dash come on. No sounds from engine.

Kinda putters when I first start it also,and when I go in reverse.

The noise sounds like some kind of pump.when I restart the car and shut it off the pump seems to shut off.

Vehicle had water pump replaced at 97,000. Head gaskets at 117,000 and now at 171,000 we have had three thermostats replaced. Good coolant flow with thermostat removed, pump has been checked, radiator has been flushed and checked with pyrometer?

Key fob has a dead battery and need to open the doors and start car to get home from work

why does my forester shut off when I go from park to drive/reverse

how much is transmission or to change bands in it

Over 15 mph, my 2000 OBW has a sound that increases with speed. it's a rythmic grumble in the left side. I can feel it vibrating under my feet, that gets louder and faster as I drive along. What is causing the sound?

Mechanic told me the front heat shield was going bad. Is there such a thing?
I hear a vibrating noise on acceleration. The mechanic checked the entire car out and said that it was the front heat shield going bad. I'm reading that it could be the torque converter which is a recall issue. Did the tech miss this? Is there a heat shield?

Only upon startup, and this doesn't happen every time. I go to start my car and notice the rpm will go up to 2000 - sometimes even as high as 3000 and back way down. And then it will teeter-totter up and down again, it will chug, the headlights flicker and it sounds like the engine is going to cut out completely. It feels as if it almost starts too fast and not 100%. It will shake while doing this and then it will settle out after a minute and run normal. This only happens upon startup and we have noticed it happens more frequently after the car has been running all day / is warmed up, as this doesn't tend to happen when we barely run the car or upon the first start up of the day. Sometimes it will start normal, other times it starts weird. We have checked the air lines and haven't noticed any sign of a hole or malfunction. We regularly take it for oil changes and keep up on maintenance as it has 201000 miles on it and is our daily driver.. What could it be??

car won't start unless I loosen battery for a while and doesn't shift right while driving.

it knocks really bad and will not move the lady i bought it from said it had a very new clutch

Like 2 weeks ago still holds air and not much wire showing

3 most likely would be great help. Estimate-include mechanic hours probable.

This happened as I pulled onto a busy street from a parking lot. The car lost acceleration, stalled and stranded me in a turn lane. I fired it up...started but no response from gas pedal. Turned car off for about 2 minutes, recovered accelerator response and moved car back into parking lot. Let car sit for a moment, started again but check engine light on and cruise light flashing. Saw a post from someone else on this forum about resetting cruise control circuit. Tried it and it worked after a couple tries. Both check engine light and cruise are off now. Safe to drive or do I have a more serious problem? Car seems to be running ok now. Suggestions?

bought a impreza with high temp gauge. owner said needs thermastat. drove car home temp settled down below mid level. have put multiple miles on car no change or problem, except overflow keeps losing fluid. mechanic said ( VALVE COVER GASKET). no overheating,no white film on dip stick or oil fill cap. radiator stays you think valve cover gasket? oxford NY 13830. Has turbo.

I think it clicks one time but won't trun over or start.... but the lights work.

Pulled code P0453 and told the evap pressure control soleoid has a leak. Talked to dealership and they did not know about this part. Would like second option before fixing the wrong thing.

Im looking inoto buying a 1998 subaru legacy brighton. the guy says an alignment cant be done and theres a small leajk in the transmission. i want to know the cost of getting it fixed and if its worth buying.
