A check engine light or service engine soon just means you are not meeting emissions. definitely not a big deal.
go to autozone and have them do a free scan and get the fault codes.

Also, try this first - disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour and see if it turns the light off. Drive for 10 miles and it may run rough until it relearns your engine controls.
let us know results.

Chrysler lhs 2001 turning switch

Dear single Mom can't waste money. The relay that governs both the turn signal and the hazard lights is located behind the steering wheel in the steering column. If the lights do not blink, this could be bad or it may be the switch itself.

This repair can be done easily with a little mechanical knowledge. The top plastic of the steering column has to be remove. There is a relay, about 1inch cube on the back of the signal switch. It is usually black but could be gray or any other color. I do not think it comes in pink though! (Haha)! That is the first thing you change. It just pulls out. When you replace the new one, make sure the orientation of the pins are correct. It will only go in one way.

I hope this helps but please be careful if you are going to do it yourself or have someone with no mechanical ability try to do it!

I need to change timing belt is it hard to change I am a single mom and cant afford to pay a mechanic I am going to attempt to do it myself please help mom with no money

It would depend alot on the make model and year of the car, and your mechanical ability. You should first buy a repair book and study the procedure to see if you think you are up to the challenge. And if you have the right tools or not. A timing belt job is not for the average DIY.

If the check engine light is on, you would need to get the trouble codes first. Not much the DIY can do without the equipment to check exhaust gas.

Service engine soon light came on, changed oil and of course changed filters checked gas cap all good any ideas

There are really too many things to list that can cause the service engine soon light to come on. I suggest you have your mechanic scan your vehicle to see what codes are present to cause the light to come on.

The "service engine soon" light


A code P1092 for your vehicle says the fuel trims are trying to add fuel and the limit has been reached and this throws this code. More specifically Pre-Catalyst Fuel Trim Too Rich Bank 2. A rich condition could be caused by several things. You could have a faulty fuel pressure regulator, a leaking fuel injector or a clogged air filter. I would check the air filter to see if it needs replaced and have the code reset. If it comes back on then you will have to go to a technician and have them pull the actual BMW fault code with their scanner.

My moms explorer- when she turns hard left or right she gets a rubbing sound like from the tires bit thats not whats rubbing. it sounds like the 4x4 is engaging. she has to back up about 15-30 feet to fix...

No fuse wont help, this sounds like the 4wd is engaged, the front axle hubs need to be checked or the front axle actuator may be stuck, there are a few things that can cause this problem and if its all wheel drive that makes things harder to check out, soory theres no easy fix without having it looked at.also make sure all the tires have the proper amount of air in them 35psi is good, hope this helps.
