Since I replaced same battery in the remote, the alarm notification spontaneously goes off at random times with random horns and lights flashing-usually mid of night. So I pulled horn fuse and don't set the TCU 'alarm'. Got the lights to quit flashing so I can drive it but not lock doors. Now it started again this morning, erratic morse code sounds, horn blowing lights flashing. How do I reset this thing after replacing the remote battery?

Both handles pull but you can tell that the inside of the handle has a piece broken off. Im still able to open the doors with an "L" wrench. Do i just need a new door handle or the whole outside assembly?

it leaks when i try to fill it up it's either from the hose or the tank and the only way to get to it is you have to take the fender off

i taken the car door panel off but where do i go from there i don't have a spec sheet on what to do next i have heard you have to take the window out and i do have power windows and locks

I can feel a couple of relays in the fuse panel clicking much like turn signal flashers

For example, when I am stopped at a light, the A/C will start blowing warm air and in Arizona in hte summer, it gets to hot in that short amount of time. I get it recharged every year but this does not fix the issue. Is this a defect in the Sprecta's? Is this something that can be fixed?

could it be the oil pump or something else please help.

Can't remove washer tubing because of hood brace, no room for fingers. Rodents chewed (we live in mountains) tubing and I need to replace left side.

Happens most of the time accelerating normally form stop to running speed. The car lurches and hesitates for an instant.
The car runs great otherwise.

I bought the car in the summer and didn't have any problems. Now that it is winter, I have problems with the radio. If I leave the radio on when I turn the car off and it gets cold during the night,the radio will be blaring at high volume when I start the car up the next morning.I try to turn the volume down, but it just gets louder. I have to turn the radio off until the car gets warm. Then I can control the volume.Does anyone else have this problem? Is there a recall on this?

When do I change the timing belt?
