The car mileage is 82000. I have had to replace 3 coil so far and now suddenly the engine runs rough again and the check engine flashes. I'm sure it's another bad coil. Should I replace all the remaining old coils? Maurice
Intermittent "Restricted Performance" Yellow light. Recently a ""Severe Restricted Performance(?)" Red and Yellow. Car almost stopped, and could only move at less than 10 mph. I stopped car, turned off ignition and waited a few minuets. . I was able to restart engine, no "Restriction" lights; and drove back home. I have started up car and moved it around in driveway, but not driven for fear of getting stuck.
How long have you had this problem? A few weeks "Restricted Performance" intermittent ; first time for"Severe Limited Performance

The hood latch clicks to open, dr side opens, not passenger. Can't lift hood up. And the trunk won't open without the key, suddenly.
Now the top won't even start to fold down but the back windows go down. Do you think it's a fuse or the motor?
The parking brake on light is coming on and the parking brake is not on. It dings every time I accelerate from a complete stop and the red light is on that's his break in addition 2 the parking brake on light any ideas? How can I turn the light off?
The fluids are fresh. I think the hose may have come off somewhere near the latch because that's where seems like all the fluid came from. How do I get the top back down?
The top wouldn't go down and all the fluid came out into the dome lights. The back windows won't go up and the passenger window repeatedly lowers when I press the convertible button. The fluid was fresh.

We have had 2 mechanics look at the problem 2 separate times.

They each had different solutions and after spending thousands of dollars the check engine light is on again.
