Have the car exorcised at once!

Seriously, it sounds to me like you've managed to dislodge something while doing your audio work - or even inadvertently left behind a small tool; there, it could roll onto components and short across several components/gauges. I think you should carefully retrace your work and make sure nothing was dislodged or left behind!

Good luck; let me know how you get on!

SOURCE: Car: Nissan Maxima SE 1997 tachometer broken

the dash voltage egulator probably went bad. First,check the battery & make sure you have 12 volts,not running. Check it again running & you should see about 14.5 volts. If that's good,I'd replace the guage assembly.

SOURCE: Suddenly died while driving. Turns over but won't

Agreed with yogegoy,
Old days are gone , on diagnostics without scaner you have small chances to find the problem .
But you can check basics - Spark(you said it's ok) , timing(timing belt can jump a tooth or two), fuel delivery (disconnect fuel hose and crank the engine, if flow is strong - ok) .
Also I think on those cars throttle is electronicly controled unit , so it needs adaptation after replacement with apropriate tool (scaner).

I got check lite in my mitsubhishi magna exec. n sometimes it never goes off ... even the spark is there , all fuses are ok battery is ok fuel pump is new but still not get off some time whats the sol

Hi Josh, The engine check light can come on for a number of different reasons and will not always mean the vehicle comes to a stand still immediately. My advise is tohave a scan carried out to find out why it has come on, and then have it attended to before you're forced to take the long walk home. Regards John

Steering noise and vibration

Noises are kind of difficult to diagnos if you don't hear them firsthand. That said, the thing I would be looking at is the strut bearing. It is circular like a lazy susan and what happens on cars over 75,000 miles is dirt can accumulate in the bearings and it can cause a grinding or popping because it resists turning and when it does the spring is suddenly turned and that sets up the noise.

If that is the problem I would recommend replaceing both sides and then you will need to get the alignment done. Let me know if I can be anymore help
