Broken Computer? I just started up my computer and my back round thing instead of my picture said that there was a dangerous virus on it. I scanned my computer before with Malwarebytes and deleted the problems, but now my computer keeps freezing and spam windows and voices keep popping up. What do I do?

2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited..remote start only honks and flashes lights once and does not start! How do I reprogram this to work?

If the door is slightly ajar it will beep once and not start.

It is not likely a program problem. It is likely a door ajar or tailgate open etc.

the car first locks prior to starting. If the car cannot secure the doors etc it will only beep and flash once.

Check the lock the car function and confirm it is operating.

Hope this helps? 2012 Jeep Wrangler Factory Remote Start

Air bag light

unfortunately you need to have an expensive scan tool to trouble shoot airbags so there is not allot you can do on your own,also it can be very dangerous to mess around with airbags.There is one thing you could try and it is safe to do.Try popping the hood and disconnect the negative(black) battery cable.Leave it unplugged for about 5 to 10 minutes to make sure the power has fully drained from the computer.Then hook the battery back up and start the car and see if the airbag light has shut off.What this procedure does it wipes out the computers trouble code memory and forces the air bag system to recalibrate.If that procedure does not fix the problem then it will have to be looked at by a qualified technician.

Would like to download owner's manual as offered

Most manuals on the net contain viruses or are dangerous to your computer, I suggest getting a repair manual from your local autoparts store or a maintence manual from the dealer so you can have a good reference with pictures and diagrams.

Car will not excelerate over 15 miles an hour

The car's computer might have entered into a "Limp Mode". The computer probably detected an abnormal condition dangerous for the engine/transmission and protects it from damge but allowing you to reach home or a service shop. The computer should be scanned for OBDII codes for trouble diagnose. Hope this helps.

I have a 2003 ford windstar that shakes and the engine light blinks every few minutes and when the engine light blinks then my airconditioner blows warm air instead of cool. i have changed the spark plugs...

Someone will need to scan the computer for trouble codes to point you in the right direction for troubleshooting the problem.
When the engine is running rough the computer will cut off the ac.
Could be a fuel injector problem or weak coil or several other things.

My 2004 nissan armada has a intrmitting high idle issue. What is the problem

Instead of playing the guessing game get an OBDII code scan done. I know this sounds like a waste of time but there are times when the power train computer will detect issues and not display a MIL (malfunction indicator light) or as most know it the check engine light. If there is a vacuum leak, misfiring injector or coil, low fuel flow, bad sensors or any other cause this will help narrow the search down dramatically. Good Luck.

Replaced engine coil and cam shaft sensor still not starting its cranking but not igniting any suggestions??

For starters, it would be nice to know which engine we are talking about.
The 2.0L (VIN code [C]) or the (2.4L VIN code [X])
Either of these engines will run WITHOUT the CAM SENSOR, so I am not surprized at all that replacing the cam sensor did not get it running.
Did you check for Battery voltage at the ignition coil before replacing it? Did you check for the ground signal from the PCM at the coil before replacing it? Did you scan the PCM for fault codes? If you did, what codes did you get? Did you check the computer data for the cam sensor before replacing it?

Here's what I'm getting at...You are probably trying to save money by fixing your own car instead of taking it to a professional repair shop. That's great! I solute you for your effort. However, as you are now finding out, it can get REAL EXPENSIVE "guessing" what is wrong with it. You are dealing with a computer-controlled ignition system. You cannot simply ignore the computer that operates it and expect to efficiently and economically determine the cause of the malfunction.

There is a WHOLE LIST of things that can cause a "crank, no-start" condition. The system must be DIAGNOSED to determine the actual cause. If you would like help in diagnosing the problem, I would be happy to help you. You will need to start by scanning your computer for fault codes - then we can talk, and possibly save you a bunch of money.

Otherwise, if you just want to continue replacing parts until your engine starts, then I would replace the crankshaft position is the MOST LIKELY cause of your problem. (right next to a broken timing belt)

1999 ford escort zx2, engine is racing loudly without foot on gas, was driving and could not get stopped without using the emergency brakes. Even smells very, very hot and shut off, turned back on -...

Hello, Do not attempt to drive this car. This condition is called a "Runaway". I looked up the safety site for vehicle reports and there were none reported for this problem.

If a computer scan can be done on this car a Technician may be able to get a download of the problem. You can contact a friend or neighbor to scan this vehicle if you can not afford a Dealer. The Autozone, Advance , and Orellys autoparts stores will scan the vehicle free, but it would have to be in their Parking lot.

Some of the above Parts places have tool loaner programs, you would have to ask if a scanner can be borrowed for a deposit. I have used some other equipment this way and they will return your deposit promptly.

Some of the electric controls, like the TPS are suppose to control the throttle. If this part is broken internally, it could cause your problem, but usually breaks the connection and your car will not start. Runaway gasoline pressure from a bad fuel pressure Regulator might be another possibility.

I would like a note when the cause is verified, Runaways are dangerous.

My nissan micra 2003, malfunction indicator light

OH YES !!!! u have to get ur car computer scanned right away. Theres surely a problem on the way, and before it gets worse, get it scanned and u will easily get to know what needs to be changed. So instead of changing 3-4 things when its gets worse, its better to change only the thing which is required right now.
