SOURCE: Front End has a burning smell.

Any type of burning smell can be a cause for concern. This could be a number of thing. Did they do an oil change when they had the car? It could be a leaking filter. I would not be shy about returning to the place where it was repaired and have it double checked. Don't forget you paid for this work and deserve to have it fixed properly. I hope this helps

SOURCE: My daughter was driving her 1997 Mercury Sable

even though your reading 13.9 volts at battery at 2000rpms,
you need to load the alternator and battery to get a real reading,start car,put high beams,heater blower on high,and flashers on while in low gear,your going to have to have a friend help so you can test at battery with a multi meter.

Testimonial: "I did do a load test on it, and it held up fine. However, I drove the car today, and no light, no noise, no sound of a problem."

SOURCE: I hit a deer and airbag didn't deploy but

Are you sure the smell was not deer meat on the radiator?
No one can honestly say its safe to drive and that an airbag won't suddenly deploy. Best thing to do is have it scanned to see why the light is on. Most shops will have a scanner that should work for this (save you the high cost of a dealer). The light may just be on because there is crash data stored in the SRS module and it may need be replaced.

My truck will start but when i put on the heat and radio the voltage drops to next to nothing.. The alternator, starter, and battery have been replaced.


IS THE ALTERNATOR ACTUALLY CHARGING THE BATTERY? START THE MOTOR, CHECK THE VOLTAGE AT THE BATTERY. THE VOLTAGE SHOULD BE BETWEEN 13.80 & 14.80. IF IT ISN'T, THERE MAY BE A BLOWN FUSE IN THE FUSE BOX UNDER THE HOOD. CHECK ALL FUSES WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER. THEY CAN BE TESTED WHILE STILL IN THE FUSEBOX. THERE ARE TEST POINTS ON EACH FUSE FACING OUT. POWER ON ONE SIDE ONLY, BAD FUSE. POWER ON BOTH TEST POINTS, GOOD FUSE. THERE IS ALSO A FUSE BOX INSIDE THE VEHICLE. TEST THOSE FUSES IF NEED BE.
