SOURCE: transmission shifts hard when the trac off light comes on

youll need to scan for transmission codes. the trac off light is a default of the trans going into a default safety mode. Bad speed sensors and simple little bolt on items like that can cause the condition but only way to really nail it is with a computer.

SOURCE: 2006 BMW X3 - Airbag warning light is on, radio

Hello
When you have this many problems in the electrical system guessing is not an option as to the cause. You MUST have the BMW dealer perform a diagnostic scan of the appropriate control modules for fault codes, based on the symptoms that would be the SRS (Air bag restraint system module) module and the BCM (Body control module) module. This system scan for fault codes is the very 1st thing that needs to be done to find the root cause of these faults.

SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,

Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

SOURCE: Brake lights won't come on

check for a bad brake light fuse! if not the fuse, the brake light switch operates brake lights and if bad you will not be able to shift it out of park, as well as the brake lights not coming on.! because you have to put foot on brake to do so. if bad switch, it wont let it out of park. it could be just out of adjustment also!! good-day !

SOURCE: 2000 volvo S40 speedometer won't work, ABS light on, Starts out in 4th gear

I had same issues on my 99 S80, turned out to be the spline gears on the end of the CV Axles that send signal to Wheel Speed Sensors. Their is one on each wheel, but the ones that gave me all the issues where only the front two. Problem was had to replace the entire CV Axle to be able to get new spline gear, but was only about $60, so was worth it.

When I went I turned the key there was a bzzzzt sound no starter, or solenoid click


Sounds like the battery is dead or dying. Most batteries reach their EOL (End of Life) between 3-5 years. One very quick way to check the battery is to first turn on your headlights - then try to start the engine. If the lights go out = the battery is dead. If the lights only dim a bit = the battery is low (and may be near EOL). If the Lights stay bright and the Engine/starter engages = Normal/Battery is Good. 2nd best way is that if the car starts normally when jump-starting, then look at the battery/charging system. If the Battery is less than 3 years old and not charging properly, there could be multiple causes for this: Low acid level in battery, Bad or Corroded battery connection, Low Alternator output, Frayed/corroded battery cable etc. A Simple Check for the Alternator is once the car is running - (If you Jump-started then Remove the Jumper-Cables) - If the engine continues to run, then disconnect the Ground Cable from the Battery (Black or (-) side) - If the engine continues to run = Alternator is Good/working.
Caution: If you discover a dry cell in the battery do not fill with water - get to a parts store and buy some electrolite (Sulfuric Acid) RE: water may freeze and burst the battery wall. Good Luck.

My battery light and brake light goes on , some time goes off and on / I have a new battery and I change the altalnator


Check the battery terminals (where they are connected to the engine.) Those clamps can be loose or corroded. It happened to me and if i hit a bump or the road was bumpy, the battery cables would slide loose and the power would flicker or die completely
Open the hood when the car is off and try to wiggle the positive nad negative connections on your battery. They shouldn't move at all. If they're loose, tighten them up carefully. If they're covered in battery acid or corroded, then you may need new terminals for your new battery to connect well to your engine. Good luck, i hope this helps.

I can't say 100%, but as far as I know, there are a number of lights that come on when starting a car. The alternator light is one of them. Is it possible that you never noticed it before? On my car, the check engine light comes on, the engine trouble light comes on, the seat belt light comes on, the air bag light comes on, the abs brakes light comes on and there are probably others.
I think what you are seeing is normal.
Do you have any problems? Is the battery dying? Is the car stalling? If not, you are probably OK.

Replace the battery first! That acid will corrode everything it touches. Once the battery is replaced, you can test if the alternator is working properly.

Just fixed one, check the 16 pin connector under the battery. This one was destroyed from battery acid leaking down over it. It provides current for drl and headlights. It's accessible by removing the battery and the air filter housing. GM wants to sell you a wiring harness for 700. Got a used connector from a salvage yard for 15 bucks.

Car won't start. There's no clicking sound but auto seat belts and some dash lights come on dimly.


Check the battery charge and also check that the battery terminals and clamps are clean and free of corrosion and acid residue build-up. If there are signs of acid or build-up, clean with boiling water only. Do not use baking soda or bicarb!

The p1698 code is for the (bus) that is how the computers commmunicate with each other and also how the scan tool talks to the computers.

There is a common problem with these vans, that would be a good place to start. The battery will leak acid onto the wires underneath the battery. If you remove the battery and battery tray you will be able to see the large wiring harness under the battery. Inspect all of the wires underneath the battery for damage.
