It may sound like the noise the rear wiper washer makes when it has not been used for awhile. It's not the normal high-pitched squeak when brakes need to be replaced. Sometimes the noise occurs while driving on uneven roads. It's sporadic, usually when the a/c is on; in all types of weather - sunny, rainy. Sometimes it appears after driving in rush-hour traffic for 30+ minutes, other times it appears in a few minutes when driving. Unfortunately I am unable to duplicate the noise for a mechanic to hear.
I've driven hwy, street & varied my starts & stops over 3 weeks but these monitors simply won't re-set. I 're-booted' by removing the battery cables so I realize I'm starting over but I had to try the 're-boot' as nothing else was working to re-set the monitors which my mechanic checked for me every other day. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.Thank you ;-D
Abs light on
Loud clunk going into reverse. Seems to slip in forward on occassion. Problem is intermittent so hard to diagnose.
after replacing headlamp i turned lights on and new light was not working right. i put that light in the good side to make sure it was good, it was so i put second good light in the one that went out. it would barely come on, i tested the voltage on the bad side and when i stuck point in hole 1 of three the other side headlight came on, i put new bulb back in and reattached it, i also put the good side back, turned on lights and both sides barley work, when i hit the brights the side that was good comes on bright and the one that had gone out does not power on at all. also i unplugged the big connector to the brakes to replaceheadlight, and put it back in now my brakes make an awful noise like abs is off could these two be releated, it was raining a little bit and there was heavy moisture in the air, i checked all fuses, and even put scan tool obd reader on car, no electrical problems showed up, the abs test did say master cylinder main control not working but i already figured that out. is there something i need to reset when unplugging that main connector and with my headlights could the fact i touched the bulbs numerous times and it weas raining have screwred the lights up or could i have blown a relay not a fuse.

Wet weather seems to increase fequency. I must disconnect battery to reset. Toyota dealership says I need charcoal canister. codes p043f, p4201,p2419, come up when they tested.
My car stalled and would not restart because timing belt broke. Is my engine is damaged?
Manual transmission

Sometimes I can't move the gearshaft into 2nd, and it feels like a piece of rubber is blocking it. Sometimes it's other gears, although it still goes into gear. Sometimes it goes right in with a "chunk."
This problem just started. It acts as if the battery or alternator is the problem. A friend hooked up his OBD and no codes. He Also used voltage meter on battery and alternator and said both are good. What else would be the problem?
