SOURCE: WILL NOT START

sounds like water ingress to either a control module or the coil pack, check all control box locations eg footwells for water and then check the engine bay for loose or naked wires, dry and clean and possibly cover with a plastic bag etc and it should be fine.

SOURCE: Horn wont honk. Fuse is good and horn honks when

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

SOURCE: 1995 Buick Riviera Horn starts honking on its own.

the older cars like that have little contacts that touch each other and if they touch the hor blows. the cover needs to be taken off and readjust the contacts. its alot more difficult when there are airbags. so DO NOT attempt if there are airbags in the car. very dangerous

SOURCE: i just bought a 2001 bmw 325ci the car had a rough

Welcome to the world of BMW's. return the car to the seller. you got a bad one. You got an electrical short draining the battery. Bring a blank check and sign it over to the dealer. They're going to have to run through the entire electrical system to find the short. That work alone is worth more than the a used up 2001 325i.

The problem is most likely not the horn, but the horn relay. Go to your nearest "Auto Zone" or O'Reilly's and they can not only sell you the new horn relay, but very probably show you where the old relay is located.

This is a good indication of a bad ignition control module. The module is located under the coil pack (where all of your spark plug wires come from) and may be testable. Auto Zone says they can't accurately test this part but it is $100 to replace it.

1990 riviera oil pressure guage goes nuts when accelerating. can just a sensor be replaced?


Could be. Check the wiring at the oil pressure sending unit. If the wiring is good, replace the sensor. It is located Under hood, passenger side, rear engine area, above oil filter, mounted on lower timing cover. Curtorsey: Auto Zone.

I own a Buick Park Avenue 1990 3.8L Heater


your heater sounds like the blower motor is bad!! and for your starter!! I would say take your old starter off and take it to auto zone or advance and have them test it for free!! sounds like the solenoid or the bendix is going bad

Alarm system sounds off for no reason ('97 Lesabre Limited)


I had the same problem. The alarm system on my 1997 Le Sabre self-actuates. Luckily, it went off once when I popped the trunk. I went to Auto Zone and bought a generic trunk replacement lock. I noticed the original lock had a funky push-pull type of switch used to activate the alarm. This switch was likely hair-line on/off and when the temperature changed, it activated.

I went ahead and replaced the lock without the switch, but you can try simply unplugging the switch through the hole in the metal behind the lock to see if that might stop the alarm from arming itself (or cut the wire).

Good luck, it's a "hairy" problem.
