Message From the Shop

Independence Auto offers TOP-NOTCH service, with very affordable pricing. I have been in the business for over 20 years. Dealer trained on Toyota/Lexus, Audi/Volks, and Mitsubishi. Extensive electronics training background through NEI and Dunwoody helps ease some of today's complicated auto problems. I have a technician on staff with over 25 years experience including 19 years Mazda Dealer experience. Between the two of us we can diagnosis and repair all makes, give you a fair price, and get it done right. I started in the business years ago, pumping gas, fixing tires etc. at a Full-Service Station. I learned the value of customer service, and common courtesy. You will always receive both when you have your vehicles serviced with me. I look forward to meeting you. Cory Larson/Owner Independence Auto

The symptoms are definitely not normal I would check your ground at the battery and any other grounds that are easily visible for corrosion to make sure your PCM is grounded correctly is possible for Signal voltage to your sensors not being grounded properly good cause weird symptoms

I would definitely recommend replacing the tires first if you still have the same condition after tire replacement we would want to look into this suspension most likely a tire issue though

Can this be done wit...
I'm not sure exactly what you're asking usually the door latches operated by a rod. The window regulator does have a cable that operates the window up and down but usually if that cable breaks its non serviceable in you have to replace the window regulator. Either way it's not usually necessary to remove the lock but you will need to remove the interior panel to access everything
How can I turn off the check engine light ...
You can turn the check engine light off by unplugging your battery for 1 - 5 minutes should clear the computer to clear the code. However if there is a problem that's triggering the check engine light it will just come right back. The check engine light Illuminating is telling you you have a problem with one or more of the circuits in the car. The most like will lead you in the direction what is wrong with the car causing it to run rough. I would bring it into a reputable mechanic for a diagnosis
My breaks are sticking and there new
Usually if I break is sticking the caliper is freezing up and not retracting the slide pins are frozen or the rubber line from the steel line to the caliper at the wheel end has an internal crack and is not letting the brake fluid return. Those are The Usual Suspects when they break sticks
