2004 Nissan Altima 3.5L BATTERY LIGHT went on during 15 minute drive. Next day car "died" while idling after a 20 minute drive. BRAKE WARNING LIGHT & BATTERY LIGHT on prior to full electrical failure.

Start with checking the alternator voltage with a multimeter. With the car off check the voltage in the battery which should be holding 12v charged less if flat of course then start the car and test the battery again. If the alternator is good you should be getting a reading of 14 to 14.5 v if it's the alternator it'll A) not put any charge into the battery or B) be a very low voltage being anything under 13.5 v

Removed lugnuts but a tire will not come off the vehicle . The parking break is off, but the rear wheel will not spin. I turned the ignition on and the parking break light was not on. I lifted the parking...

rear wheels on saturn's I believe have drum brakes - these can tend to seize up when worn through and the brake shoe rivets start to cut into the wheel housing or if not worn out, just be tight enough to keep wheel from spinning freely. Also the light on parking brake is a simple switch attached to the lever and is not reliable. I've had parking brake cables rust up and seize which can be a pain - generally requires a replacement cable and often the connecting yoke and rods.

As for the wheel not coming off - that's unrelated to the brakes - the brakes act on the actual wheel hub to which the lugs attach the wheel and tire. Many times it is problem of rust and dirt caked up between the wheel and the hub. I'd suggest rapping the wheel with a hammer, go all around the perimeter several times on the back side - use a piece of wood between hammer and wheel to protect the wheel from getting dented - the hammer "shocks" usually will vibrate thru the steel or alloy to loosen caked up dirt and rust. Can't think of much more you can do - maybe others have a suggestion. worst case might be to bring it to a tire shop and pay them $10-$20 to get it off - if it is just for inspection they can put it right back on for you. If you are looking to swap it out with another tire/wheel, then they will charge more since they often ding you for balancing it (which is a good idea regardless).

I have a 2005 Chrysler town and country. I went to put my foot on the brake to put it into drive and my speedometer gas and everything went blank and the park drive reverse neutral and all that went out...

I would pull the rear brake light bulbs and top 3rd brake light wire first to check for a shorted bulb.Do you have trailer wiring?That can be a source of shorts too.Next would be a "short tester" be used on the brake light wiring.

I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump

It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

ABS and Brake warning lights on together

Space saver spares are only designed to use in an emergency to drive at LOW speed to the nearest repair shop to get the standard size tire repaired or replaced. They are designed to not leave you stranded, not to use as a long term/high speed replacement. Repair or replace the flat tire, put it back on and if the lights do not go out on their own, reset them or have them reset. Most auto shops and parts places (O'Reilly's, NAPA, etc.) have the programmer to reset them. Most of the time they will do it for free.

My 97 ford escort last night when I got out still had the brake lights on. when I went to fix the problem the lights went out and then when i went to put the car in drive the car will not get out of park.

I would replace, or at least look at the brake switch under the dash connected to the bracket in front of the barke pedel. it does double duty. Brake lights and shift lock release.

I have a 2007 kia spectra my tire pressure warning light went on

check not only the tires on the car, check the level on the spare tire to, cause some of those have the sensors also... most cars will reset the light once you have the pressures right and drive on the tires a few miles to reset the light.... hope this helps you..
