Trac control light want turn off. How do you cut it off
When turned on I can see everything, then when I start it I have only dashes ,with abs,brake and traction lights on.The background lights all come on...just not the info.While driving the entire thing will just come on properly, then after a while just goes off again. During off time nothing changes except steering tightens up slightly. Ford told me I need a new cluster, but DNA ( who specializes in repair) tech told me on the phone it could be a communication issue in computer, and that wouldn't fix it. I haven't heard this from anyone else. It runs no different,and everything works during the off periods which is most of the time. I read something about the key might stop working, and as a 78 y.old female, I don't want that to happen while I'm out.
my car cranks several times before it starts
My radio for past two to three years has been periodically turning it's self off, but now it's even started to turn channels by it's self. It will change to different station then sometimes go back to original station or to a different one or I will need to change it back. I thought maybe it was due to over heating as at times my radio gets very hot when vehicle running so long but it happened when I had just started vehicle for the day.
When I take off the first gear won't catch right away but all other gears work just fine what could it be?
