Mercedes Benz A190 Avante won't start

My wife's car has been driving fine but this morning the indicator panel lit up like a Christmas tree when ignition turned. Battery fine but engine not turning over and all warning indicators lighting up. Does something need to be reset and, if so, how?

SOURCE: 2000 dodge neon won't start.

look everyone !!! i am not the only one who has this problem , but I found the answer on my own.... iI hope this can help others . If you have to replace a neon engine you must do these thing if you want it to start.
Lower vehicle and perform camshaft and
crankshaft timing relearn procedure as follows:
² Connect the DRB scan tool to the data link
(diagnostic) connector. This connector is located in
the passenger compartment; at the lower edge of
instrument panel; near the steering column.
² Turn the ignition switch on and access the “miscellaneous”
² Select “re-learn cam/crank” option and follow
directions on DRB screen

Most people don't have access to this scanner <but it must be done> I used a snap-on cost 3000 but have the reset feature

Thanks you all for your help.

With the key in position 1, hit the odometer reset button on the left on the cluster 3 times in a row. The cluster should beep once. scroll through the multifunction display with the page buttons until the display shows the onboard voltage screen. It will say something like "UB: 12.2 V" scroll threw this menu with with the up/down until you reach the "service menu" page. scroll down to "confirmation" press +, confirm full service with +. Wait till it says service confirmed. cycle the key off and then back on to position 2. Scroll to the normal service menu where it normally says how many days or miles till next service. If the service was reset correctly, it will say "service display not possible" for a few minutes while it recalculates. You must cycle the key off and back on before it will back out of the onboard diagnostic mode. If you dont back out, the esp/abs/bas lights will illuminate when the car is started

1...Turn Key to position No:2 in the ignition / steering lock and immediately press AND Hold the button "000.0" (the trip reset button) TWICE within the space of 1 (one) second.

2…Turn the key to position No: 0 in the ignition / steering lock. Then release the button.
3...Press AND Hold the button "000.0" (the trip reset button) and turn Key to position No:2 in the ignition / steering lock. Keep button pressed
After about 10 seconds
the service indicator will reset and an acoustic signal may briefly sound
That should do it....Good Luck…...Let me know if it works?

You will need a code reader/scanner called OBD2. They are under $50. A nice one can cost $100-$3,000. Just buy one that does the need for the more expensive ones. You can borrow one from some auto parts stores, like the AutoZone.
You can also pay a shop this much to do it for you, every time.
Just select erase codes, and you're done.

First, let me educate you to the fact that there is no such thing as a "Fuse issue". If a fuse is blown, it is the result of an overload in the circuit caused by a shorted component or wire. Fuses are NEVER the CAUSE of an electrical system problem. Blown fuses are ALWAYS the RESULT of a problem in an electrical circuit.
Second, if the things started working again without replacing any fuses, it most definitely has nothing to do with a blown fuse...blown fuses don't heal themselves.
If the engine started and ran, it is not a battery issue. If the battery was dead, the engine would not start.
There is most likely a problem with your Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) or one of the battery input circuits going to it. A bad ignition switch can cause this, especially if the problem is intermittent.
The Check Engine light is on because the Engine Control Module(ECM) has recorded a fault code that may point you directly to the problem. I'll bet that if you have the ECM scanned you will either have an "Ignition Circuit" code or a "U-code" for loss of communication with the IPC. (they have to talk to each other.)
I would recommend beginning diagnosis by having your ECM scanned and find out what codes it has. If this is, in fact, caused by a faulty ignition switch, there may be several codes stored at the same time.

Sounds like you have a speed sensor problem. Possibly input or output shaft speed sensor on transmission. You will need to find out what fault codes are being set and proceed from there.

Why would the brake lights stay stuck on in a 1992 toyota when the headlights or just the parking lights are turned on but work properly when no lights are turned on?

The most likely causes are either a short or a bad earth/ground in one of the rear light clusters.
Remove the bulbs and check to make sure the bulb holder and contacts are clean and not shorting out with verdigree, also check the earth/ground to chassis connections on the back light clusters.
A bad earth connection in a lighting circuit on a car can cause all sorts of weird and wonderful symptoms, the bulb will look everywhere for an earth just to make itself work.
How many times have you been following a car, it has indicated to turn and then when the brake lights come on the back has lit up like a christmas tree?, that is a sure indication of an earth/ground fault.
