First try turning key on but dont start engine...... depress accelerator pedal to the floor slowly 3x . May put it back in learning mode, if not then check the multifunction switch on tranny or speed sensor to see if it got damaged

SOURCE: 1996 Audi A4 Quattro has a noisy rear differential

It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.

All the positions will light up when you have codes in the Transmission control module. You need to have the vehicle scanned for codes.

How does Drive Smart Insurance works?

Bajaj Allianz General Insurance launched Drive Smart' - to reward customers who drive safely and well.
This will be done through a device fitted in the car and through the company's mobile app which provides real-time feedback on driver behaviour - including on overspeeding, changing gears in the wrong fashion, too much idling or driving rashly. It will provide a whole range of statistics, including the time spent driving, the distance travelled, the likely fuel consumption as well as the amount saved by right driving practices. There is also a one-touch call feature that allows for 24/7 roadside assistance in the event of an emergency or breakdown. Customers can opt for this while buying motor insurance policy from the company.

Replacement Of Door Handles Will Not Cause Starter Relay To Directly Malfunction. It Will Cause Security System To Set And Not Allow Starter Relay To Work (not activate it)

97 f250 7.5l long first crank fuel psi is good what fixes this problem

No temp condition given; however, long cranking not best starting practice. Better short crank, pause half minute, crank again. Do not prime or pump before, during, or after pump but let computer control the run. Pedal use interferes with computer control of run start.

1997 oldsmobile 88 Cuts off while driving at any given time but starts right back up.

You need to have the GM dealer perform a scan of the systems memory, it will have a fault code that will lead the tech to the cause of this stalling which may be the CKP sensor.

Engine stalls out and rough starts

FYI for anyone who finds this thread and is researching the same problem- Try this it fixed my problem. take off the AIC and spray it good with INTAKE CLEANER. do not use carb and choke cleaner, then put it back on. next take off the air intake hose. with someone in the vehicle to keep it running and to resart the motor when it dies, (which it will) spray an entire can of the INTAKE CLEANER into the intake with 10 second sprays. try spraying for 10 seconds , then start vehicle and it will prob die. thats ok. a few times with motor off have the person in the vehicle press the gas to open butterfly and spray a whole bunch. let it sit for 2 minutes then start again. repeat these steps untill the whole can is empty. next- THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT- put everything back together and disconnect the positive battery cable for 30 seconds. then put it back and get the motor running again. due to all the intake cleaner and the resetting of the computer it may take a few tries to get it running. once its running smooth take it for a drive and if you can go through a full cycle of driving conditions. example, stop and go , highway ect.. obviously im not responsible if it works or not but i messed with my truck for days untill i came across this advice and it cured my problem. hope it helps someone else.

Hot air from AC vents. Sometimes the system is working ok though.

That is not a whole lot to go on. I would recommend gathering some more information like: WHEN and under WHAT CONDITIONS does it work? WHEN and under WHAT CONDITIONS does it NOT work? When it stops working, is the radiator cooling fan working properly? When it stops working is the A/C compressor clutch engaged and the compressor running? Will it start working again if you cycle the temperature control to HOT then back to COLD again? Will it start working again if you turn the A/C system off for a few seconds, then turn it back on?

All of these things can be clues to what is going on with your system. This information can be EXTREMELY helpful in pointing you in the correct direction to getting it fixed without wasting your money on a bunch of parts that don't fix the problem.
