New starter, alternator, battery and serpentine belt in the past 3 months. Alternator passed test. Installed new one anyway. Battery light on first the air bag light then all gauges stop then car dies.

I checked all fuses just had brakes done and oil changed. Car is a v6 and drives gr8 The heater works greats cruise control works but nothing on stock radio/CD player. Does this have anything to do with the ignition recall? Will they automatically fix the horn when i have them fix the ignition?

While driving sometimes all the dashboard indicators light up, such as traction control and anti lock. When those indicators are lit the transmission shifts violently but shifts fine when the indicators are not lit. Happens almost every time I drive the car and bumps in the road can often induce this problem.

Dealer I bought it from years ago said the bushings were bad on it, but I feel like there could be more than that (dealer was kinda... scummy). Has gotten worse over the years (haven't been able to afford a repair yet, but I may soon).

my blinkers only work occasionally. there is no rhyme or reason. Also, windshield wipers won't turn off. Is this common for this vehicle?

Where exactly is the termostat located?

Safety light stays on

Back in 2013 I had the R&R modules, Engine Control Module and Body Control Module fixed and everything was good. Now my electric has been going on and off with the windows locking, the radio turns off and the speed odometer will turn off. I brought it to the shop and they reset the Service Light but could not find the problem. Said it was a "ghost". Since readjusting the service engine light the car has not done this in 2 days. What should I do?

REPLACED BRAKE PADS, ROTORS ARE GOOD, BLED BRAKES, GREASED CALIPER PINS, THE calper is stuck , the pin on the left front wont move back and forth.

Before, i new there was a problem went to test brakes and brake on front left got hot.

How can I tell if the radiator or water pump needs to be changed? Coolant leaks out underneath and the light comes on on my dash. It doesnt show that the car is getting hot but on the gage it does and a little bit of smoke came out from underneath the hood and it felt hot. I put coolant in the resvoir and most of it leaked out without the car being started with in 7hrs or so.

This is the bracket on the front of the motor block located on the passenger side of the car. I can replace this bracket but cant seem to figure out why it is failing...
