If you mean lights it's likely to be a loose connection, you need to check and disturb wiring, connectors and/or switches etc to try to localise it while static with lights on. Get a friend to look at lights while you move or tap around wiring/switches/connectors. Check fuses and relays are secure and connecting well.

Is there any thing on the market to help holding back the machine while going downhill to keep from applying constant brake pressure


I assume you are taking about your car or truck? I also assume you are talking about extended driving down hill as in through mountains? If you are driving down long hills through mountain areas you should be using the lower gears. There should be, depending on how old your car is, other gears other than D like L or 3L, 2L 1L. These are the low gears for the vehicle. Use them to have the engine go into higher RPM and keep the vehicle from gaining to much speed. If you have a newer car with techtonic or semi automatic shifting use this and keep the car in a lower gear. What you should see is the RPM go up and hear the engine working harder but the speed should not keep climbing. Otherwise you are going to burn out your brakes and won't have them when you need them. So try different gears, depending on the grade of the slope, till you get one that keeps you at reasonable speed without having to keep your foot on the brake. Hope this helps

How much will it cost to fix a 1995 Saturn . will not go in reverse


No one knows that

Not even a transmission repair shop

Not until they test drive the vehicle
Get info from you
Possibly pull the transaxle & take it apart
to find a problem

Personally I wouldn't keep a 20 year old Saturn
or any vehicle with transmission problems

To replace or rebuild it, your looking at $3,500

Not worth keeping it or repairing it

You had vehicle with no problems until you
paid a butcher to install the radio,so you know
how the problems got there

Now you go back to the radio folks or get it out of the
system & return the vehicle to as built working condition
yourself

What is the average life of a serpentine belt?


It varies from vehicle to vehicle but you could ask the dealer---my view has always been to keep an eye on the belt for cracks or fraying anywhere---they are not that hard to replace and while costs will vary (on mine found a OEM one new for 26 dollars and same belt at local parts place was 52---same brand and part number.

It is better to replace it and have the tension unit that tightens most of these inspected than have it go when you are driving down the road.

In my case I keep the old belt rolled up and stowed in the vehicle in case the new one fails.

Drive vehicle down the road for 20 minutes and come to a stoplight engine stops when you take foot off gas peddle and go to apply brake. To keep vehicle from dying you have to hold the gas peddle down


Have you changed the timing belt? or timing belt guides? How many miles? This does not necessarily have to do with fuel.... Could have to do with air intake or timing as well....

Just had the truck worked on and tried to go thru Marta inspection and it failed - they said there is a drive cycle that I need to go thru before it will pass - what is the drive cycle


Drive cycles vary by manufacturer. It can be as simple as driving at highways speeds for a certain number of miles, or it can bea number of times the vehicle is started and warmed up, then turned off to cool down. A new car dealership service department may be able to tell you what the drive cycle is for your particular vehicle. Anytime you clear the computer on your vehicle, either by using a scanner, or removing power from the computer, you must go through the designated number of drive cycles to reset the computer diagnostics. It's a lousy system, and the auto industry should be required to conform to some kind of standard for all vehicles, regardless of make and model. But, for now, it's not clear exactly what you need to do to achieve the required drive cycles. If your inspection has expired, keep the documents you received when your vehicle failed the last test, just in case you get pulled over by the police.

1987 k5 blazer dies during driving


Make sure your battery is secured by a good battery hold-down system...if the battery shifts in the tray and the positive terminal touches the fender, the dead short will immediately kill the vehicle.
Also, take the alternator to a parts store and have it tested if your battery is held down firmly. The whining noise can be bad alternator bearings. On a vehicle of this vintage, this is a possibility for the noise. It is furthermore possible that the alternator has died electrically, and during a lengthy drive, the vehicle's own electrical consumption will drain the battery and the vehicle will die en route.
When you jump it off, it gets enough charge from the donor vehicle to drive, but if the alternator is dead, it can't keep the vehicle supplied with enough energy to operate.
