Can't find the overdrive button car is making funny noise when I stop.

Is front wheel drive different?

PO441
PO455
These are the CEL codes

If you pull on the lower edge, it gets better. I don't see anything in there that is loose, or access to open it. Ideas on how to fix it? Love the car, and it had around 150,000 miles. Thanks

replaced battery the battery light came on replaced alternator battery light still on and now the running lights won't come on at all and the automatic part that makes the lights come in doesn't work either.

Torque converter switch is stuck off and we failed emissions.


could it be

The remote on the key chain doesnt work. I cant get into my car.

Fuses were checked, blower motor worked with direct line from battery, installed new control panel.

So I just had my the rod replaced and while driving my car the radio changes to am and now will not shut iff, even when the car is off. Any ideas?

Wipers only start working once I give the blades a tug.
Switch or Motor causing the problem?

problem. They dont stay on all the time help

For past year car started acting like I was In 5 th gear and check light will come on saying control module. It will only do it when I'm first or second or neutral. Also my cruise control light will start blinking on and off. So I would have to pull over shut the car off and it would be normal again. It's being doing it way more offten like 4-6 times a day, and finally it won't even start. We checked battery, starter, alternator everything ok. But the car ant start, anyone had some problems? Any ideas?

Had a rough idle in park and when accelerating ,fix misfiring with new plugs improve a little but engine light still blinks when accelerating , also once in awhile it'll jump the rpm high till it catches or let off gas pedal , coil ,o2 sensor what would be the problem?

ive had this fixed in 2014 and 2015 looks like ill have to do it again

Ihave replace my oxygen sensors and mask air flow sensor. check engine still on.code p0031

There was a very loud clicking noise right under the passenger air bag. I had to take it to a GM dealer. The cost was $250 and wondered if this pertains to the recall now?

The fan blower will go off. It will come back on next day. Could this be as simple as a fuse?

sometime they work and sometime they don't.

I know how many miles I go to and from work but my odometer is adding at almost double that rate.

It showed symbol two days ago was on expressway doing 45mi per hour today all of a sudden it started to shut down

Over the past several weeks I have noticed that my car vibrates slightly when idle. This is usually when I am at a stop light but sometimes happens when moving. It is more of a flutter but enough to feel it. It seems to lessen if I turn off the fan. I thought it was just the fan (as in air conditioner). Sometimes when I begin to accelerate it feels like the engine is hesitating rather than responding immediately like it normally would. Any ideas what it could be and a ballpark on how much it will cost to repair it? Mileage is 54,000. I keep up with maintenance... Oil changes, etc. not sure of engine size. I just guessed at 1.8L.

The clock keeps resetting itself. Everything else on the stereo works fine and preset channels are still set.

Since my Vibe's water pump was replaced recently, all of my lights will work during daylight, but my low-beam headlights (only) stop working once daylight fails. All other lights work properly (daytime running lights, fog lights, high-beams).

I am concerned with the "clockspring" issue that was talked about on this site. When I called GM and gave them my vin #, they told me that it was not recalled. Is this true?

Thank you,

Veronica

I have a 2003 Pontiac Vibe. Last year I began noticing an exhaust fume odor when the car is idling and the heater fan is on. The odor disappears as soon as I start driving, even if I don't open a window. I have had the exhaust system and the catalytic converter replaced, and it is still doing it. The latest thought is that it is a leaking head gasket. Could that be the cause? Not sure it's worth the $1500 for such an old car with 140K miles on it; nor do I want to spend more money on something that won't work. I love this car!

Car got wrecked the air bags deployed and now ignition when u put key in just slides it doesnt act like it turning over or click or anything does it just need new ignition switch where key is?

My mechanic tells me that my canister cover has a leak and is filling up with water. I have ordered parts to repair it but it's been 3 weeks now and I've been told not to drive the car when there is water on the road. It's winter here (and roads are wet also) - what happens if the canister has water in it that freezes? Will my car stop working? Will my fuel tank collapse?
