I'm with Nolan...Sounds like battery charging problem...ie alternator is beginning to fail in output...please get a free charging system check at your local parts store before you get stranded...Hope this helps.

If it were a battery you would have dim lights. What you are explaining is a wire that is shorting out. What you are probably hearing is the relays being energized on and off as the wire makes random contact. It is probably shorted out near the fuse panel where the wires connect.

click noise on front wheel may also evident in
the suspension system when driving,these noises maybe produced by the springs and shock absorbers may either be a rattling noise or squeaks,Noises produced are usually caused by looseness of the parts, tightness of the parts and lack of lubricant.

the serpintine belt needs to be cleaned or replaced, or sometimes a power steering pump or tensioner can be the cause

Changed rack and pinion. when turning wheel to right horns started blowing. unplugged airbags and horn stopped. drove truck for 1 day now wont start and dome light is blinking and warning lights on dash...


It sounds like you disturbed the wiring or the connector inside the lower portion (inside the cabin, under the dashboard) of the steering column. You may have also pinched wiring higher inside the steering column, up near the horn button. You'll need to track it all down & correct the wiring problems in (and around) the steering column.

Steering wheel stuck


Forgot to mention I am sure that you can not turn your key.
I am also certain that you are not able to start your car.
If there is any red light blinking one would simply need to turn the key on and press the disarm button at or near the blinking light not hard to find.
The best shot is that there may be a force preventing the key from turning, this would usually be a force against the steering wheel. If you are not able to remedy the situation as I described to you on my previous answer try this. Have some one help you to jack up the front wheels just clear of any roadway or parking curb then try to insert the key release the wheel apply the brake select netural and then let the car back onto the roadway.

My dashlights blink on and off randomly, for the past few months, what is happening? Now my passenger side headlight burned out, I went to the gas station, and had it replaced. Now it is browning out,...


While sitting in park,turn on your head lights, pull towards you/down on the top off the steering wheel, is there a buzzing sound that starts, from headlight switch area ? My 95 had same problem on the blinking of dash lights, then the headlights starting acting up.I replaced the clockspring behind the airbag area , thats what experts told me what it was, they were wrong, it ended up being a loose ground wire that grounds(connects) the wiring harness to the body to the right of gas pedal, just behind the counsal.

Air bag light is blinking


Guys! Are you readying your airbag system after messing around with your truck?

I've seen airbag lights come on for man reasons, faulty sensors, connections, replacing RADIOS! Removing seats!! All sorts of reasons. Personally I bought my QX56 with the airbag light blinking. Drove me crazy for 24 hours till I decided to reset it n see what happened. It takes two minutes to do. No tools.

1. Turn key from off to on. (on meaning all your dash lights are on but your not cranking the motor)

2. Watch the airbag light closely. It will stay on for a few secs. and then as soon as it blinks off (the start of the flashing), turn the key off instantly.

3. Count to 5 (1 Mississippi, 2 Mississippi . . . .)

4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times until you have done the cycle three times.

5. Now turn the key on and watch the light. It will start blinking in a different, slower manner. This is diagnostic mode. You can watch this for a little while, no hurry.

6. Now turn the key off again, Count to 5 like in step 3 again, and turn back on. If the procedure worked, the airbag light will not be flashing.

Turn signal blinker problem. They work properky


sounds like wiring.or there may be a plate in the steering wheel.the plate in the steering wheel seems more plausible because wiring on both sides is less likely.it wouldn't hurt to check the wiring as far as you can to the rears though.any brake lights work?

1985 Toyota Pickup Horn


Probably the switch in the steering wheel, or fuse, but usually horn fuse works other things too such as cig lighter or radio. If everything else is working fine, then to troubleshoot you'll need a testlight. I would start with the wiring harness where the steering collumn plugs in and decipher which wire is the horn wire. Put the test light clip on +power, then check the wires on the collumn side one by one, pushing the horn button on each one. The horn switch is the wire that makes the light blink when you push the button. If you try all the wires and none make the light blink, then its probably a problem with the horn switch in the s. wheel. Does it have an after market steering wheel? Because aftermarket wheels often have crappy horn switches in them. Also could be a horn relay if it has one. If you listen carfully while pushing the horn, you should hear the relay faint clicking. If you hear this, then the switch is working, but the relay might not be. Follow the sound to find it if you hear it. Test all sides of the relay with your light. Should get power constant on one term, and the other two should light when the horn button is pushed. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Airbag light flashes while driving my 1994 Linc TC 114,000 mi


it is flashing a code at u, this indicates the coiled rotating contact under the steering wheel has an open circuit in the airbag connection to the steering column, this contact is called the airbag clock-spring rotating contact, the steering wheel must be removed to replace it, CAUTION: The Airbag must be dis-armed before you remove it from the steering wheel, if it goes off u can be seriously injured.
