Sounds to me like you have a broken fan belt. The fan belt powers the alternator and the cooling fan. If it's broken you overheat and have no charging just as you are describing.

Wheel initally with start making a washing machine noise or grinding sound when doing sharp turns the opposite of the wheel side as the outer race will generally go bad first. You may also notice the rim heating up due to friction. Grinding at low speed or a growling sound would dictate an inspection.

Sounds as if you got it wrong somehow. Usually there is a chart under the hood showing this. If not, get a shop manual or ask the dealer for a diagram, or perhaps someone else here may have better knowledge.

Volvo fl 10 lorry truck horn problem

Disconnect the horn and put a test light to it to check for power. If the wire is getting power then you have a bad horn. If not, then you have a bad horn circuit. Test the horn by using alligator clips to run power and ground to it. If it works, you need to backtrak the horn circuit to find the problem.

If the wiring is not supplying power, the problem is usually in the steering wheel.

I have a 2001 Audi Quattro 2.8 and my heater is blowing out cold air how can I fix this problem?

The cardboard in front of the radiator is only good if the problem is an open thermostat. If the problem is a bad heater control valve, then blocking the radiator could over heat the engine. I suggest comparing how hot the radiator hose feels, as compared to the heater hose. Watch the heater valve when you operate the control knob, to see if it is opening and closing properly.

No heat...Needed new battery

Well #1 with the gauge going to hot and no heat,10 to 1 it's a bad thermostat, stuck in the closed position.If you drove it like that for any length of time, with it hot, other things can get damaged.Change the thermostat, then have the alternator checked to see if it's charging.The meter should read 13 to 14 volts or more.

Heated seats in my 2004 navigator are not working

if the light doesnt come on for the heated seat, *sometimes* the electronics need to be reset. You do this by very carefully taking both battery poles off the battery entirely. Then touching the negative to the positive WHILE NEITHER IS TOUCHING THE BATTERY (this is very important otherwise you could get shocked). This will clear computer and reset it. Then reconnect the positive first. then the negative. this will sometimes work. This is only if the light for the heated seats is not coming on. If the light is coming on you probably need a new heater core.

Service engine soon light

Heat sensor or heated O2 sensor? These are 2 different things. After replacing the sensor the first time, did you remove the negative battery cable for at least 30 seconds? This will re-set the ECM.
