Recently had recall repair done on speed control switch. Since then the speedometer began to randomly stop working. I first noticed on a couple of occasions that when I began driving after a complete stop that it took a few seconds for speed to start reading. Yesterday while driving a distance of 30-35 miles speedometer would randomly read 0 then after several minutes it would read correctly but then quickly go back to 0. This happened several times in that one trip.

How difficult is it to adjust a door,as mine doesn't close properly and I have to put inward pressure to open door as I'm afraid its going to break the locking mechanism.door hasn't been slammed I'm very particular.It started the day after I had electric window regulator replaced.I had to take it back cause window was binding after new install,they stated it was nothing to do with their work.Of course.It's as if someone leaned across my door putting excess weight on it.It's one thing after another since I've lost my real mechanic and have to deal with so called aaa rated shops.As I said I'm particular,not petty and I'm not giving these people counterfeit money.Boggles my mind.

So yesterday I am driving home when I start noticing my radio starts resetting when I would release the gas to step on the break, I figured maybe a wire had come loose since this was an aftermarked radio. However when I got home and shut the car off my entire electrical system went dead. I had to play with the ignition for a few seconds before it came on again. Going to work today, the same thing happened. Any idea what could be causing this?
