Windshield question
Vehicle was repaired tail lights disconnected and removed now tail lights are not working correctly they are dimming and there are warning lights saying no right rear tail light and brake light and bulbs are very dim.
diagnostic code says knock, light is yellow and intermittently restricted performance message, sometimes both message and check engine light goes off
When driving ~ 30mph, all of a sudden it feels like the emergency brake is engaging on and off for a period of sometimes 2 minutes. It continues to drive in a straight line, but slows down each time it engages and makes a growling sound. Does not happen all the time, worse when it is first driven in the day.
After starting my car when I try to shift from park to drive the shifter stays stuck in park.
We thought it was a sensor that was broken but it could be a fuel pump

I would be driving and when I press the excelerator for more power and speed , the car started missing , and sometimes goes into a limp mode , and inside the information message center it would state RESTRICTED PERFORMANCE. And when I stop it would shut down , or if taking a slow corner , or backing up .???

My 03 S type will not start battery charged etc. I have no key fob. It has been suggested the security system is the issue. Can you help?

when turning when in lower speeds
Can my speed sensors be removed and will the car still run ? Can they be cleaned? This occurs randomly, may drive 50-100 mi. No problem. Other times, may only go 10mi. Have to kill the car, wait a min or so, and restart.
Is it best to locate the camshaft position sensors from underneath or above the engine?
