So i took my vibe in for the airbag recall when i got the car back the "VSC Off" light was flashing and the Traction control light was on . Also the car was automatically engaging the traction. so when you drove the traction control was engaging thinking that we were skidding on the road . The airbag recall could it affect the VSC and the traction control , did the mechanic pull/thug on the wiring for it . I read that the spiral cable assembly and ffc were touched in the airbag recall someone please help thank you
There were fog lights after market on the car but broke. I saw the wire hanging down so I used the same wire. This wife went to the fuse box, a green fuse, so I hooked it to that and the other wire to ground. Turned it on, it came on but then turned off and I couldn't turn it on anymore. Radio works, lights work, when I turn the key, I hear something like a fan.
I know it sounds kind of stupid at first, but when I crank my car the lights come on immediately. Dark, light, doesn't matter. However, I have the light switch in the off position...as in it literally says off. So I'm not sure why any lights are on. There seems to be absolutely no way to turn them off at all other than to turn off the car. Please if someone knows a way to disable them let me know. Thanks.
I had a junkyard motor put into my car February 2013. The engine burns excessive oil. A year ago a man came out and helped me put xp performance plugs into the engine to stop the problem. It worked. Several months ago every now and tehn I would feel a shudder under me sometimes even in park. A tow company got a hold of my car recently and on my way back home I was losing power and could barewly get the engine over bridges. I am pulling a new code P0442. I never pulled that code before until after the tow company got my car. I am not currently pulling amisfire code. I put stp into a full gas tank recently and noticed a slight improvement. I still can't pick the car up to speed over 2 rpms without it bumping under me. What do you think it could be? My guess is a hose has come loose or was pulled on by the tow company. It is doing this often

Checked ac relay on wheel ok but someone said there are 2 of them. Any other ideas. I can't believe I had ac 12 hours earlier. Freon is ok
The hatch is open an the latch is lock an the key or the button will not unlock it
Engine turns over but like it won't fire up.
the air bag indicator light came on. Vehicle has 80,844 miles. If vehicle is turned off and then restarted light will go out but come back on after a few minutes.
The first five mins was on city roads so the speed was like 30 to 35 miles but then I went onto the freeway when I found I couldn't get the speed up. Then I switched back to the D gear. But the whole process, the rpm never went near to redline. It was around 5k to 6k. The redline is 7k to 8k and above.
