Replaced the water pump and engine started overheating. Replaced the thermostat and coolant only gets warm, and no heat blows out from the heater. I have replaced the fan relay under the glove box twice and it only work on high setting
The car stalled out while I was driving it and wouldn't start again
I have already put 1 gallon of premium gas in it and cleaned the throttle body
My heat/air only comes out of the defrost, also, the dual temperature does not work.
All lights and radio comes on but car make funny clicking noise but will not turn over..window also locked up
What makes my car say cruise control not available
--Whenever the weather is below 35/40 degrees F, the speedometer stops working and there is a rattling sound.
--Mechanic said only fix was to find a "low mileage" same make/model/ year "instrument cluster" to replace what is in the car now. Difficult to find.
--Any alternative fixes? What is it about the cold that causes the speedometer not to work? Car has 199K miles, has manual transmission, and is well maintained.
For some time, it was taking longer and longer for the headlamps to turn on automatically. Now they won't turn on at all, even by switching the function on and off at the rear view mirror. I must manually turn lights on with the headlamp switch at the steering column. Is there a bad light sensor somewhere, like in the rear view mirror, that I can replace? Occurs all the time.
Car has 74,000 miles on it. Replaced battery 2 days ago and since there is a little orange light that is lit on speedometer next to 0mph when headlamps are on. Cannot find anything in owners manual or my Chilton repair book. I can take a picture if it helps but have not done so yet.

Thanks
