Sounds like you have a bad battery. (could be a bad charging system too, or a bad ground) Computers may act up if the power is not high enough.

SOURCE: My door ajar light is on

I have a '97 that does the same thing. Cold weather makes it worse. The problem is that one of the switches that are inside the door, (where the latch is), is sticking. You need to shoot some WD-40 in there and then use some white lithium grease spray. My guess is that it is the driver's door because it is used the most, but it won't hurt to do them all.

Comment back.

I need a fuse chart. My car did not come with one..My wipers and instruments IE gas gauge, radio, wipers do not work


Year/make/model??? Possible ignition switch problem rather than a fuse problem. Try slightly moving key back and forth with vehicle running to see if wipers and such start working. If so, suspect an ignition switch problem

My 2004 Mercury Sable blows the run/acc fuse every time you cycle the key The car runs fine but does not have wipers radio heater controls or gas gauge This vehicle has a remote start that has not fu


If the remote start was not working and you were not blowing the fuse, and is doing so now. that would suggest that could be the problem. But something is definitely giving you a direct ground on your key cycle. I would go through and disconnect the remote start first, then if that does not fix the problem, then its time to disconnect all the accessory on that fuse and one by one check them for a ground or short. I also would like to know how are you starting the car once the fuse blows ?

Disable 2003 passat alarm


check the door jamb sensors and the hood and trunk open sensors one could be bad causing thr security system to engage are all of the doors locking when you press the lock does it say trunk ajar? ckeck under the hood as well because if the car thinks the hood is open the security may trigger also because thieves can pop the hood anddisconect the battery so some cars have a hood pop sensor they should look like a little.black button somewhere near the front

Gas guage not working


Voltage from the battery goes through the ignition switch, through a device in the instrument cluster called a voltage regulator (though it is really misnamed), through the gauge, through the wiring to the gas tank, through the sending unit in the gas tank to ground.

The sending unit is an electrical wiper that slides across a peice of resistance wire. the movement of the float moves the wiper. If the sending unit no longer makes electrical continuity, the gauge will read zero. If the sending unit wiper is shorted out, the gauge will read full.

Try grounding the wire at the tank to see if the gauge maxes out, then disconnect it to see if the gauge zeros out. If all that happens, your problem is the sending unit in the tank. If none of that happens, your problem lies closer to the front of the car. While you are under there, you should measure the resistance from the terminal on the tank to ground, just to verify that the sending unit makes some electrical contact.

If the other gauges work OK (temp, oil pressure) then the "voltage regulator" is probably working fine, and the problem is the gauge itself.

If you have no other gauges (excluding speedometer, tachometer and battery voltage meter -- they work differently), then try this:

Put a voltmeter on the part of the fuel level gauge that is supplied by the "voltage regulator." The voltage there should regularly cycle between near zero to 10 or 12, back to near zero, etc. If you get that cycling, then it is most likely the gauge.

My gas gauge doesn't work in my 2003 bonneville. What can i do to fix this problem, along with my broken gas gauge my heater in my drivers side seat is no longer working, i would appreciate any help thanks...


It might not be anything wrong with your fuel sending unit. Keep an eye on your other gauges. I own a 2004 Pontiac Bonneville GXP. All of my gauges have started acting erratically. It started with my Temp. gauge, moved on to my speedometer, and now my oil pressure , fuel level and batty volt gauges are affected too. Its a very common problem with GM vehicles.

My gas gauge does not work?


If you're fuel gauge stopped working, this would not affect the fuel pump or pump relay. More then likely, the sending unit is at fault. You may check fuses to see if this vehicle has a fuse for the gauge. some do. The fuel pump has a relay under hood and also a 30 amp fuse.Has separate circuits for gauges.I would be looking at the sending unit.
