my check engine light my ABS warninglight came on along with my reduced power engine message came on at the same time. . so I take it to a mechanic shop and end up replacing the throttle body the fuse box andthe brake pedal .. sensor.. after almost $900 I finally get my car back after 2 weeks later and my air conditioner is not working at all and was working perfectly fine before I got there what could it be?!

Replaced rear calipers pads and rotors the same on front when removed line no fluid came out ''thought was weird'' replaced, bled out fine.Also replaced master cylinder still locks up. started driver side rear now driver side frontlocks up

After exiting the vehicle and closing the door without locking it, the theft deterrant light on the dash flashes every few seconds. By reading the owners manual, its my understanding that the light should flash every 3 seconds after locking the vehicle. Also, can this light cause a battery drain? When the vehicle is left unlocked, I don't believe the light should be flashing. It hasn't in the past.

What can be causing this problem?

took a long time to diagnose. Wiring was not problem. diagnosis is a control module by repair shop. Seems like both tail lights would be a problem if this diagnosis was correct.

Changed oil, did engine treatment and gas treatment with new fuel. Replaced battery

I've a 2005 Chevy Malibu 4dr-LS V-6 eng. My code reader says P0751 Shift Solenoid A CKT Performance Or Stuck Off. The traction control light comes on while drive under normal conditions, then the front wheel drive becomes a little stiff to drive, but still able to drive. Done check the all brakes, and transmission fluid, all in great shape. Hope someone can help. Don't really want to goto exspensive auto shop if possible.

When I take the battery out, cutting all power to the car, is there anything special I have to do first, like make sure the radio anti-theft code is unlocked, or something similar?

I think all of my electrical problems are steming from the electrical wiring behind the stereo component. Would like to check the wiring connections out, but can't get to them.

I was told if the body control module had poor terminal contact, it could be the cause of my problem.

Have a short in the electrical that controls most of the dash components and also the radio, cigar lights door locks. how do i gain access behind the radio?

MY WIFE WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AN THE CAR JUST STOP. IT WOULD NOT TURN OVER LIKE THE BATTERY WAS DEAD.CHARGED IT HAD IT CHECK OUT AN IT WAS GOOD. SO I HAVE RULED OUT THE THE FUEL PUMP,AN THE ALTERNATOR.

My transmission has given out. What can I expect to pay to rebuild it?

steering making a knocking noise when we turn it.

also checked the fuse and no problem there. Occasionally happened before, but after few trials was able to latch, now having to tie shut
