2008 Mercury Mountaineer electrical issues


This is a devious problem which could lie anywhere. So many things not functioning would perhaps be a ground problem. Maybe take some extra care in cleaning the battery terminals, check if the ground wire is connected to the chassis. Do you have rodents in your area? Maybe they nibbled some wire somewhere?

My lexus gx470 failed to start last week after driving fine to location. There was no response to turning key. All dash and controls worked and activated but no cranking of motor, no clicking, just...


First place I would check are the battery terminals. Remove them and clean the posts, re-attach and tighten them. You can buy a tool for cleaning the posts at your local auto store.

Interior Dash Lights dim, brake & battery warning lights flash on and off.


Sounds like your alternater, get a multimeter set it to volts start the car then check the battery is getting 14 or over volts from the alternater to the battery , if your getting less than that it's not putting enough volts back to the battery to run the car with good luck colin

My 2007 GMC Yukon will not start in cold weather. When I turn the key over the lights/dash controls come on, but the engine does not turn over at all. Nothing. Put a new battery in and still does it. It is a random occurance. Would not start for two days this week so I had it towed to the dealership and the next morning it starts without the service dept doing anything??? Bring it home and two days later it does it again??? Any ideas?

Brake failure urgent , abs light, low battery


So many lame responses...I went through this same experience and can tell you in my case it was the alternator. All of the warning lights such as the ABS light, airbag light, the warning about the brakes are all because the alternator is not providing the DC voltage all of the car's sophisticated electronics need to correctly monitor these subsystems' status. Mine left me high and dry by the side of Interstate 5 needing a tow. The low battery warning was off and on for about an hour before all of the other warning lights came on, and then about 5 minutes later every needle on the dash went to zero and the car died. After sitting waiting for the tow, it did start up again, but we got it towed to a dealer (thank god it got us within 8 miles of a dealer! the first warnings started when we were in the sticks) who diagnosed it as an alternator. $1200 and two days later and all is well again.

On the interior roof warning lights there are two lights that keep coming on(orange and red) that look like snow flakes. What sre these warning lights for?


These are outside temp. warning lights. The Yellow light goes on when the outside temp. dips to 40 degrees to let you know that there is a possibility of frost. The Red light goes on when outside temp. dips to 30 degrees suggesting a possibility of icy conditions.

All dash lights came on and none of the instrument gages worked.


This Problem is a Direct cause of the Low Temperatures. When it is - whatever the Relays are getting REALLY slow to Respond and Causing all kinds of Problems.
