Hi my ignition light comes on an the steering gose stiff air bag light came on abs light came then when i stopped the car it would not start again but it did not effect my light


Have a load test done on the battery . Check battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.. Check the alternator drive belt condition and tension because if it drives both the alternator and the power steering pump it indicates a belt problem.

Lights are going crazy like bad ground or computer on my 1985 vette


If you are are talking about the dashboard lights, there is a known problem that causes them to go "crazy" as you call it. There is a part known as the tachometer filter. This is a capacitor that filters the noise coming mainly from the ignition and that causes the dashboard display to go "crazy". If that is your problem, go to Ecklers store on web and search for the tachometer filter. It comes with instructions. This part goes next and connects to your distributor.

Bcm problem?


This sounds like a you are having a voltage problem. Have the charging system checked. A bad battery or poor alternator output can cause this. When voltage starts dropping below about 9 volts all kinds of crazy electrical things can happen and they can be anything and anywhere.

2005 Pacifica lights dashboard gauges etc. started blinking like a crazy light show inside the car. Car stalled & wouldn't start again. We jump started it and it started within minutes of the charge....


Charging system, Replace the alernator it shorting out. In order for a alternator to work the rotor create a magnetic flux this flux is what gives the battery it charge. In order to creat this flux which is a A/C current it needs to be a D/C current there in place is a wheatstone bridge or a half wave rectifier. now why the light show? light bulds do not know the difference from A/C to D/C .power is power to it. replace alternator.

Guages when crazy. Now won't even try to start.


You likely have it repaired by now but it sounds like a classic case of oxidized battery or cable connection (sometimes mis-diagnosed as bad battery but cured with new (clean) battery)

PWR light on dashboard


You will need to have the pcm scanned to pull the trouble codes ffrom this unit to get a better idea on what is going on. With the breaks I would say whoever changed them disturbed one of the wheel sensors for the ABS.

Electrical problems in 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse


Hi,

I had the same problem. It seems that multi purpose fuse (#13, 10A) blown out. And this fuse its part of the charging diagram system and also from meter gauges system. So I discovered that the speed sensor harness was the problem.

Try to look for it and replace it ( its under the big air filter hose).

Good luck
