Have you looked under the dash at the pedal arm to make sure that no wires are rubbing or jammed up ?Also look to the small switch on the brake pedal,two wires and make sure the brake circuit doesnt have a short circuit.Disconnect a wire off the small pedal brake switch and see if the dash still goes haywire.Your just isolating the brake circuit to eliminate it as a cause for the dash.Also make sure that no earth wires were left off when starter etc was replaced.Good luck

Intermitten dead will not start

Check that the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight. Check for loose earth wires. Check that the wires on the starter are tight. Check that the IGN fuse is tight . Lastly have a load test done on the battery as it may have a broken bridge in the cells.

I think what you will find is that at some point in time someone replaced the ends of your battery cables with the little terminals that use screw clamps to tighten the cable ends to the wires and you have a loose or corroded connection there and not where you tighten the cables to the battery post you wiggled it when you removed the battery and now has a good enough connection to start it tighten them even if they appear tight and clean them if the appear white or green or black

Im trying to connect a 3rd brake light to a 99 camaro is the green wire postive

Hi William, To begin, the usual color coding on American vehicles is black is ground. To test this, take a long length of cable and a test light. Connect one side of the test light to battery positive and and the other cable connect to the black wires one at a time. If the light comes on normally you have proved the ground connection, then do the same with the other. Next connect the test light to the green cable and the other cable to the black. Press the brake pedal and observe if the light illuminates. If all is well, connect the black cable from the third brake light to the black cable of your car and the red cable from the after market brake light to one green cable from your car an insulate the other. Then go ahead and mount the third brake light. Regards John

Maybe your on board computer is having a little bit of a hick up. Try disconnecting your negative battery cable for about 5 minutes and then reconnect it. This will totally reboot your computer. Hopefully this solves your problem. Best wishes and good luck.

Came up with a code P1680 , can you tell what that mean's . Thank you

P1680 is Control Module Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) System Performance. Your car uses "fly by wire" meaning that when you press the gas pedal, there isn't a cable but rather a sensor that detects how far your pressing the pedal. that information is sent to the computer and in turn sends a signal to the solenoid at the intake manifold to open up. your problem is probably in the pedal assembly.

2007 altima won't start

Thanks to this forum I just fixed my 07 Altima - Every time I pressed the start button the starter did not turn. I knew it wasn't the battery because if the battery was bad the solenoid clicks when you press the start button.

It turned out one of the two brake switches (the one with the four wires) was causing the problem. I removed the connector and pulled off the back of the switch. I was able to see one of the contacts was corroded. I sanded it down with an emory board till both surfaces were shiny again and reassembled the switch. Works like a charm!!
