Question about Cars & Trucks
Sat in the car for 20 minute and the cd changer rotates as if it is loading. this is happening while the car is off. It rotates then stops then starts again. have to keep getting a jump to go anywhere.
Have you tried ejecting the cd magazine from the changer? If so, and it's doing this, try gently prying along the top and bottom of the changer while it's making that noise. If it's in the console, there's a possibility that something got spilled into the magazine at some point (maybe a long time ago) and has now literally got the magazine stuck. If you get it out, try taking out the 4 small screws to see if there is any residue in there. If so, rubbing alcohol and q-tips are a great way to clean it up. Hope this helps.

Are you using the correct grade of fuel.
Manufacturers claim that a car will do 28 to the gallon.
This is done under ideal conditions at a constant speed on a rolling road.
Wind, hills, overtaking and tire pressures will decrease fuel mileage.
Your car is ok. Don`t expect much more unless you want to drive at 56mph

SOURCE: the battery keeps draining and
This may be over-simplified, but to find the battery drain: Remove the positive battery cable from the battery and insert an ammeter in series beween battery and cable. If something is draining the battery, it will show on the ammeter. Remove fuses one-by-one until you see a substantial reduction in the ammeter reading. That will pinpoint the circuit that is draining the battery. Then troubleshoot until you find the faulty component, wiring harness, etc. Remember there will always be a little bit of drain because of ECM, BCM, radio memory and stuff like that.

There is a small black box under dash by steering column that has a little red button on it. Push that button and it will reset the alarm. Whenever the power is removed from the system it will trigger that alarm and flash your lights. Easy quick fix. Box is about 4" x4" and just to the left of the column. Good luck and have a great day.
