Make sure the alternator is good. Not enough power will cause assesories not to work properly. But as far as timing belt if its idling to low it will make windows roll up slower. But timing belt its self should not cause any problems with electrical stuff

SOURCE: no voltage on 2000 kia sportage drivers side power window

the switch on the passenger door is defective, replace it, the fact it (the window) works from the drivers door confirms this is the correct solution.

SOURCE: Car wont shift properly

sounds more like a vacume problem than a sensor, but the way I would start is go threw all the vacume lines you can. they are easy and very cheap to replace. check for any insignificant defect cracks warps distortions in the line. Anything. Then remove your air filter intake line to the throtle body. remove the throtlebody its only 4 bolts and usualy to sensors. The throtle body may just be dirty, clean it out inside and out. Then chek you aire intake sensor, sometimes its called an idle sensor, last check the throtle body sensor. Also if you still have your old mass airflow sensor clean it up with the proper mass air flow cleaner and return the new one. Because obviously it wasn't the problem.

Now is the time I tell you all about proper maintenace. Did you replace your air filter, when is the last time you changed your plugs and wires. I really like the bosch platinum 2 plugs. They burn a litle hot but not to hot, which means more burn and cleaner, less emissions. Hint hint to you that have to pass a emissions test every year.

You may want to go on utube and check out a product called Seafoam. I have had a lot of success with this product. It goes in your gass tank in your oil, and the third part goes in your vacume going into your injectors. It does clean a lot of **** out of your car. But I warn people that this is a at your own risk kind of thing. I know how to take my engine apart and fix it do you. Because I wont come to your house and rebuild your engine if you mess it up. Sorr for the rant but l have to give that litle disclaimer out.

After you have worked on all the things I have told you I believe you will have fixed your problem, if there are any problems or questions send me a message and let me know.

Do a compression check. You might have bent the valves.

SOURCE: 2001 Kia Sephia, electrical problem..

The fuse box may have gone bad and your getting electrical shorting. Check the fuse box under the hood that may have gone bad and may need to be replaced, look for corrosion where the fuse goes into and the wire harness. Don't know if you had your car since new, but there are a lot of cars from the Katrina Hurricane that was under water and the electrical system have major corrosion that should just be showing up now. Good luck and keep me posted

Girlfriends rodeo was not wanting to start. the batt terminals were covered in corrosion. i cleaned them and replaced the battery, now it starts but wont stay running unless i keep my foot on the gas

What year? Bad EGR? Bad IAC? Also, most computer controlled cars must "re-learn" settings if battery has been disconnected for some period of time. Driving 50 miles may solve the problem.

Pt cruiser 2009 wont stay charged. what is the problem?

Sounds like a bad alternator and or voltage regulator. It's easier just to replace both. You could take to a auto parts house. Many times they have a tester that can tell you exactly what the problem is.

Toyota Camry idles then dies

It is NORMAL for the engine computer to have to "Relearn" how to idle the engine after a battery replacement. This should only be temporary and will go away after a few trips.

If it does not go away, or if the Check Engine light is coming on, it will require diagnosis to determine the cause. Nobody can tell you if the problem is related to your recent work until the cause of the problem is located.

Poor idling and stalling on deceleration can be caused by anything from a bad Idle Speed Control motor (ISC)
to low fuel pressure (Clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump) to a bad connection in the A/C clutch sensing circuit. (Kicks the idle up when the A/C compressor is running)

My aveo 04 manual wont start gets a spark ,fuel and replaced timming belt it was chewd up after car stalled on me in the high way but still wont start. gears also shift into place whats wrong?

If the timing belt became chewed up it would seem the belt/timing has slipped (do not try starting it like this bad things could happen) You'll need to replace the timing belt, tensioner and insure the proper mechanical timing is done for it to run properly if at all. If the belt failed at highway speed and it has a interference fit engine this would mean a valve or two may be bent too. I'd check the timing and once this is corrected I'd checking cylinder compression.
I hope this may have helped,

If you've never replaced the timing belt or chain,That would be my first thing I'd check is the Timing belt or chai, just aline the timing marks on crankshaft and then look at the position on the distributor to see if it's pointed in the #1 firing position .
