My turn signal lights all work on my sunfire 2003 but, when put the flasher on (left or right), they either flash and then stop or not at all.......MAYDAY........


I think the turn signal and hazard light have different fuses. I believe the brake and hazard light have the same fuse. Does your brake light seem to work. First thing to check fuses and bulbs. This is my thought at the present time.

Oil light coming on plenty of oil


Maybe you have a faulty oil pressure switch which just stops working sometimes

Starting the car in the morning, the blinkers don't come on.


Year make and model. Could be a worn flasher at the fuse panel(or close to it) or a bad hazard switch.

95 Ford E350 air bag light flashes 5 times, then 2 times? What does this mean? Should I be worried? Thanks, Brian


from what i know the 5-2 flash has to do with the clock spring. Any issues with the airbag system need to be looked at. When the light flashes there is a short, and that could cause an issue with random airbags going off or them not going off when you need them. Another sign of the clockspring going bad is the horn either not working or randomly not working. If you dont know what your doing have a shop handle it.

Ihave a 1996 Nissan Maxima. I am unable to use the remote keyless entry. I changed the battery but still no good.


You need to program it. Here is how you doit.
Step by step:

1- get inside and lock all door with the "power dool lock switch"
2- insert the key into the ignition 6 times "IN and OUT" nice and steady until your hazards flash on dashboard. You can just keep inserting the key until you see the hazards flash, but 6 times should do it / get you into the program mode.
3-once the hazards flash, turn the key to ACC position (dash light up, but car is not running)
4-press any button on the remote (hazards should flash)
5-turn key OFF
6-remove key
7-unlock door with "power door lock switch"
8-open door DONE.
Good luck

My windows all of a sudden this morning went out(all power). My aircondition unit has gone out also at the same time. I checked the fuses and relays and they are ok. what could it be?


I have the same problem, just started on a 2nd date last night. Wow, was that embarassing! Blinkers don't work. Hazards do work. Airbag light is On. Windows don't work. Radio is fine. Heater fan does Not work. Rear defrost button beeps but does not light up. I think it has something to do with the BCM. I have to go out of town for a funeral but will trace the wiring diagram when I get back and hopefully post a solution.
Really glad I found this site, thought the deceased's ghost invaded my car ;)
