My 2003 Chevy Impala keeps making a noise when I crank it up. It sounds like a voltage regulator or something. Also my traction control light keeps coming on and making a rumbling noise when I take off...

Could be a bad electrical connection to your Anit-lock brakes and TC harness. These bend back and forth and break over time. The noise can be anything, but if you have a fuel starvation or back pressure issue, the engine will shutter when you push the accelerator down.

Jaguar xj6 break light cancels signal

Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.

2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee grinding while steering

I'd bet your brake rotors are grooved and need to be resurfaced (or replaced if they are too thin). This also means you should replace the pads too.

Loud slam & jolt after touching breaks & loud pop in sharp turn

First the obvious, I can't tell by sound descriptions. But it is helpful nonetheless. Have you visually inspected wheels? Removed wheel and looked at brake pads? Calipers sticking? Have they ever been rebuilt? System purged of old brake fluid? Are blazers front wheel drive? or even 4 wd? then front drive system is causing noise when steering. Not front driven? Then I don't have a clue.

Toyota townace 1988 - handbrake light comes on when turning right. Whats the source of problem?

I would suspect that the power cable coming from the hand brake to the light on the dash board is lying on the steering column and over the years the insulation has chafed until it will make a circuit in a certain position. The fix is easy once you have found the worn spot. Just wrap it in insulation tape and hold it away from whatever is cauisdng it to chafe with either a cable tie or more insulation tape.

Front end squeaking possible rotor rubbing something.

Have you checked the metal clips that olds the brake pads in the front galiper bracket. They usualy rust, break loose and come in contact whit the disc, creating a squeaking noise. Those should be replace since they are needed for the brakes to work properly

Car kicks back and forth when idling or the gas is applied

It sounds like you have some broken motor mounts under the hood and one of the main ones that break on those models is the torque strut. When my torque strut was bad in my car the car would jolt when I shifted the gears and it would shimmy when it was idling. I would get your motor mounts checked to see if thats the issue and if its not it may be a motor issue such as a misfire which can couse the motor to backfire and idle rough when its misfiring. I hope this works!!!
