Hapens when driving and my foot isnot on the brake pedal.


Is the TCU located under the car in transmission area?

Battery was flatten by lights left on

please help i need to get my car inspected

sometimes my speedometer works and sometimes it doesn't,could the problem be a fuse? if so where is it located? thanks

my speedometer goes up to 30 mph then drops to 0. as of now it has stopped working , but it records the mileage.

Changed the battery in the key but still wont open anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Speedometer not lighting up

I have the bulb but am unsure how to install

I had to replace the airmatic suspensions on both front RT/Lt, IThe blower motor was replaced in 2005, now it is out again. I have had to have the computer repalced, there is a link under the front passager's dash and the repairman don't know where it is coming from.

The lights appear to point outward on both sides.

The oil pressure is low at idle but increases when moving at higher speeds.

Problem just occured. Worked fine during a short 20-mile drive. After sitting for three hours, blew hot air. No sign of coolant leak. Sat overnight, blew hot air in morning. Have no technical stuff.

checked the battery - good; checked all fuses and relays - good; used a second/spare key and reprogrammed the key - did not work; other components are working just will not crank nor start. What else should I check or know to diagnose the problem?

It started like 2 months ago and it is constant now it does not go off anymore but during diagnosis is see sensor failure.

The door locks and unlocks but the seat buttons don't work and the mirror wont retract. at first it was sporadic but now it's not working at all.

i bought the new fan assembly and it has 4 bolts and the plug in connectors

Both rear door systems are still working

Break light and tail light

shift is not moving from park.its stuck.

has new pump and shocks only open halfway rest have to by hand.It should open all the way by its self but not

This never happen before and it appears the air system loses the air while sitting overnight.????? This has happened twice and I have been able to raise the car body by pushing the button (with the little car on it)both times. I worry that i will be on the road and this happens where I can't get to a shop without expensive towing !!!!! Please advise what part controls the "airmatic system". Thanks

The cartridge is full of CD's but they won't load. I get the message magazine is empty.

the computer says im 400 miles past a service what does this entail so i can take care of it

The message on the console says "Oil sensor malfunction visit shop"

my gas gauge doesn't work properly is there a fuse that could be bad

Airmatic Error message coming on intermittently. What does it mean?
