Unless you use "computer safe jumper leads" you will damage/burnout the ecu, sorry but you will need to go to automotiv electrician unless your are capable of doing a ecu swap at home.

Why does speedometer/odometer work intermittently?


Pull your negative battery cable for 30 min see if it resets your sytem. Guages should jump up and drop back then work perfectly. Had to do this with my 2005 monte carlo

Why did my speedometer stop working and within minutes my 02 Cadillac Sts stalled and would barely accelerate?


The speedometer and odometer gets a signal from the speed sensor in the side of the transmission where the speedo cable once was.
The problem could be the speed sensor, or something in the wiring, or in the instrument cluster. Or it could be that the transmission is failing internally.

Speedometer not working properly example traveling at 50 mph on speedometer had not accelerated or decelerated and suddenly speedometer showing 90


passenger side of vehicle, the tail shaft of the transmission has a VSS (Vehicle Speed Sensor)
that is most likely the culprit, it has a 2 pin plug and a 10MM bolt holding it in.

Battery on a 2005 Mustang went dead. Had a Jump to get the car started. Drove & speedometer & odometer worked fine. However, I had Triple AAA install a new battery & now they don't work. ...


Did AAA clean the battery cable connections when they installed your battery? Did you check the fuse for the insrument panel?

It could be just bad timing or a coincidense but I am more likely to think things are connected. If your gauges worked after jump starting your car, but not after AAA changed the battery, something changed or was left disconnected.

will try to assist you. did you have your clutch replaced professionally? if it's a popping or cracking sound when accelerating or turning, it's most likely a c.v. axle going bad. either on driver or passenger side in the front of the car right?if it is a bad c.v. axle it will pop and crack when you turn wheel from left to right at low r.p.m. if not this,you may have brake issues. either it's a grinding sound while accelerating or decellerating,as long as cars in motion the noise will persist.try tapping your brakes while in a parking lot in slow gear,hear something from driver front,have a passenger with the widow down on passenger side, hear it from front passenger side? the thing i go by is what i hear when i test drive to diagnose an issue with a vehicle is,axles?popping and cracking when turning the steering wheel from left to right at low speed.

Passenger window operates intermittingly. When it


The problem could be in the master window switch on the drivers door, or the window motor could be going out, but most likely the cause is a broken wire inside of the weather boot that runs between the door and the body of the vehicle, and the broken wire is making intermittent contact because the door is being opened and closed all the time, and sometimes the wire will touch and make the connection and that is why it only works sometimes.

Try this the next time that the window stops working, hold the window switch down in whatever direction that you want the window to go (up or down) and while holding the switch in that position open and close the drivers side door and move or wiggle around the weather boot that contains the wiring that is between the door and the body of the vehicle, and do the same for the passenger side door, if the window starts working while you are holding down the window switch and opening and closing the door or moving around the weather boot between the door and the body of the vehicle, then there is a broken wire or even wires that will need to be repaired.

The broken wire can be on either the passenger side, or most likely on the drivers side, and if you do find a broken wire or wires, then you should repair the wires by soldering them well and use the same gage wire if you need to lengthen the wire to repair it successfully, and do not use a wire connector if you want the repair to last.

The power windows are not working on 3 doors. What could be the problem? Just had a dead battery and jumped it off.


Most likely the RX lost the ECU program/ configuration. Need to reset the config. It is a sequence of buttons that need to be pressed.
You have to do the exact sequence of each door as it blinks or you cannot use your windows. Here are the steps.

first the driver window button will blink. lower the window half way down then raise the window up to max and hold the button for 5 seconds. Then the front passenger window button will light up and you do the same thing for each door as it lights up. It goes driver, front passenger, rear passenger side then rear driver side then do your sunroof by hitting the tilt button hold for 5 seconds and that calibrates all the windows.
