They go down after the car has been parked for a couple of !minutes or it could be a couple of hours. It doesn't do it all the time
Engine cranks, but won't start. Fuses are okay and belts all look good including timing belt.
The alarm goes off, and I don't know why. It happens ,some times when I park and turn the car off
I have a 96 Cabrio it is a standard. When you turn the key the headlights work but wont turn over. I have checked the terminals, the starter, and I am checking all of the relays but nothing seems to be the problem. I would love it if there is anything you can think of that may help. Thank you for you time.
I just replaced the coolant expansion tank in hopes of stopping a coolant leak and the sensor connector just won't clip on, it seems like the prongs on the new tank are slightly closer together than the old one but not by much, any one else run into this problem?
other times it will not turn over. I used the key on door to turn off kill switch and I want to know if I can get that kill switch dismantle or turned off permantly so I don't have this problem. Ruby
The window on the driver side of my 96 cabrio is grinding when i try to put it up or down. Most of the time (99%) the window won't go all the way up, so i have to have someone stand on the outside of my car to pull the window up the rest of the way while i am inside pushing the electric switch. My nephew is very good fixing any kind of car, he tried getting the door panel off to take a look but couldn't. Need help on how to get this panel off...please!!!!
Okay, so i've had my car for about two years now, I have 180,000 miles on it. Recently when i've been driving it, it will not go into fourth gear at all. It sucks because I have to drive like 45 mph! When I also start out from park it seems like it kind of slips and doesn't move as quick as it should for how hard I hit the gas pedal. I want to find out if its an easy fix or a major problem? If anyone knows, i'd like to know what I can do to possibly fix the issue?
ok the car is hard to start but if it starts only make it short time till it shuts off.mother got this car and loves it i hate it the igntion is a push button to start it by the way. is there some problem with these that is a problem ?
Every time I put my car in reverse, there's a loud clanging noise. What has to be done to correct this?
Recently replaced a fuel filter on my car, and when i replugged the battery the anti theft alarm re armed itself, stopping me from trying to restart the engine( won't crank at all) and i can't find the stupid sensor that's stopping it from turning off. Any ideas?
