Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

My fireplace is turning itself on automatically. No one touched the remote. Why is this happening?

I went to turn it on last night, and found that it was already on. I switched it from "remote" to "off" and then this morning, switched it back to remote to see if it would work. It seemed fine at first, but upon checking later, it was on by itself again.

SOURCE: car won't turn over

Neutral safety switch may be going bad or is out of adjustment. Switch is on the transmission under the shift linkage ear where shift cable attaches. Loosen it and put car in reverse (not running) turn switch so that reverse lights come on. semi-tighten switch and check that it starts in both park and neutral. If not you need to change the switch.

SOURCE: I have 1998 Chevy Silverado with over 200,000

I have a 98 chevy silverado also. I had same problem. My problem was located in the battery terminal. You need to take the terminals screws off and clean them good. You can not tell by justing looking at the terminals from fixed position. The corrosion was on the thread of the bolts itself.

SOURCE: Motor started tapping loudly as if there was no

hi this could be due to your hydraulic tappets, these will start to rattle if the oil has been low at some stage and the oil was to thin this normally sounds worse in the mornings on first start and gets quieter as the day goes on or disappears altogether, what you could do, is use an engine flush, put it in the engine and run it for a period of time, then empty the oil and refill with a thicker grade oil and see how that goes..hope this helps

How do I set the settings on my NAPA automatic starter/charger 85-435 to charge my car battery or to try to quick start my car? I have a 1997 VW Cabriolet.

It is best to "trickle charge" a low/dead car battery using the lowest setting. The "jump start" function will probably not have enough juice to start your car by itself. Refer to the manual of your charger for safety precautions.

Are you the original owner? It sounds as if there is a remote starter on the vehicle. There may have been a remote start added to the vehicle by a previous owner. Does this happen at the same place all the time?

All exterior lights are on when engine is started and wont turn off until engine is off, could it be the switch itself?

Is this happening all the time or just at night? The car is equipped with automatic daytime running lights which automatically turns on the full lighting system at dusk and off at dawn or other lowered daylight situations. Do you have something on the dashboard covering the daytime running light sensor? Is the headlight switch turned to the off position?

Try dis connecting the negative side of your battery for 5 minutes. Hook the battery back up and see if the theft system reset itself. It has to be the negative side only. Hope this works.

My back light does not turn on automatically at night

Most likely a wiring issue. Possibly a wire touching bare metal.
