Turn signal does not flash after car boosted. Either left side dash bulb and indicator bulbs(front and rear) or them in right side stay on when pulling the switch to left or right.

However, everything above works find if only turning cars's electric on (no boosted).

Hazard signal acts same way. A new hazard relay had been replaced. No help.
this is happening the car will spit and sputter. It doesn't do it all the time however and today I went to start it and it turns over but won't start. The rpm gauge goes all the way over to the 7 and my mph gauge is reading at 30mph without the car starting. We recently replaced the battery and fuel filter. Any ideas on the problem? It's a 6 cylinder Malibu LS
I tried tapping the key, and WD-40,still could not turn the key?
the key will not turn??????
car shifts fine then at 30 seems slow shifting so guess its slipping.rpms seem to be fine as it will rev up if you drop down to 2 on gear shift it slows down going up hills.i am thinking of buying this car for $650 but not sure what the problem is or how much it will cost to fix.
I replaced the water pump and the thermostat and the manafold
I check the fuses and it wont go up or down back or forth
changed. They were not on before battery went bad.
Cleaned rust on plug; some rust on connector plate--sprayed cleaner. Originally only 1 light out. It keeps changing but right now my parking light and turn signal is working where my turn signal is supposed to work; neither parking light slot is working or backup light. Replaced connector plate with after market Dorman plate--plug would not fit and put old plate back in so I would at least have some light on that side. Noticed turn signal light on dashboard is faintly green and blinking slow only when car is running. What is your suggestion or should I just take it to a repair shop? It blew one fuse and a relay and I replaced both. Recently my door locks also started acting up as well.
someone said that it was the fuel pump1 another said that it might be the fuel filteror some thig under the car pertaing to the fuel might need cleaning out .
In addition to the doors no longer unlocking when I turn off the ignition, I also can't manually lock the doors with the power lock switch intermittently. Sometimes, if I keep trying to lock the doors 15 or 20 times, the doors will unlock rather than lock! When that happens, I have to go around the car and manually open and lock all of them. What's happening?
how do i fix this or do i have to get whole knew door handle?
Its happened about 4 times in the past 1 1/2 weeks. The car won't start. My wife or I have to put the key into the ACC position for 15-30 minutes, then the car will start. It's just happening more and more frequently. I'm afraid the system will permanently fail sometime. A website I saw about this tells me that my car will not have an anti-theft system if I do this. I'll manage that.
My power locks no longer lock when I start my ignition or unlock when I turn the car off. They also won't unlock with the power lock switch. When I get out of the car and try to lock the doors with the power locks, they either don't respond at all or, after pushing them a dozen times or more, they unlock rather than locking. Any ideas?
Car started making a pingy knock noise and performance went way down but we shut it off pretty quick
