Magic button is 'standard' on all cars now......It is under the left side of dash , just to the right of the steering column. Use 12 guage (double barrel works best) to 're-set'! . . . retired . . stupidity is not chosen , but BEING stupid IS.............

Question Answered: after oil change and first time driving it saab shut down
August 05, 2016, 05:08 PM
Who did the oil change and did it in fact run out of oil?? Doesn't matter what brand/nationality of vehicle , they want you to buy a new engine. Sounds like trust , not smarts , is the issue here. Best of luck to you!
Question Answered: Door stuck

Assuming , from lack of more info , that the key does TURN in the door lock cylinder , but has no effect. --See other post for more.
Question Answered: Driver door stuck
August 05, 2016, 05:03 PM
Worst case scenario , is the door panel will get damaged. Sounds like the latch mechanism is jammed and the door panel needs to be removed to gain access , not the easiest with the door closed , but it is possible. Remove the drivers seat to make it easier.

WITH the parking brake on and a helpers foot on the brake pedal AND (best) front end up on jack stands, have it running and put it in gear , watch for movement of either axle shaft , maybe outboard joint is stripped. No strange noise?

You have 'fault(s) in the transmission , you should get the codes read (NOT at a parts store , that will not read trans codes in many cases. Go to someplace like AAMCO , better chance there! THEN post the code(s) here and I can fill you in on Honda suggestions(SAME trans.) Most of the time it's a clutch pressure switch , not to bad .
Question Answered: hybrid battery pack replacement
July 25, 2016, 08:33 PM
The software controlling ALL the functions in the hybrid system , are 'vehicle and BATTERY specific'- Best chance you have , is to hope that you can get a competent and motivated technician to research and find the combination you have and which of the many programs may work. May not work at all , but getting all the components to 'see' each other correctly , is your only chance(as far as what I've seen). Good luck!

Comment: Love and Drive the Car That Is Paid For

Very vague and good style to scare someone into repairs.I've seen that type of visual tactic used to scare uneducated people into many unnecessary repairs over the span of 30 years.Seeing is believing? YEAH. JUST MY OPINION. What other info was the client given?What about the newer T/Cs with hydraulic tensioners etc.?I'm sorry I'm such a sceptic ,and I apologize for sounding offensive , I'm just very defensive of the consumer.
Comment: Tire Pressure Monitor Systems Explained
July 05, 2012, 11:49 AM
First , I would like to agree with the comments regarding the safety aspects of having TPMS on cars.Second ,working at a dealership and being paid on a flat rate basis , I can't stand having to waste time on checking peoples air pressure (when that's all they come in for!). In most owners manuals ,to this day , it still states to check fluid levels and tire pressures at each fill up. Whatever happened to OWNER RESPONSIBILITY? IF it's so simple , that we should do it for free , then why isn't it simple enough for the owner? This IS just my opinion.
