Replace the brake lever. it will be easier than trying to get the button back in and will probably not stay in if attempted anyway. Go to a local salvage yard and find a replacement brake lever

Check for a switch on ebay, they are about $15. After 10 years they wear out.

My g37 will start up but after 5mins of warming up it will just shutoff, now my keyless remote won't even open the car or start it unless its in the key charging port.... Any suggestions what this might be? Also went to mechanic and no codes popped up

I have a 97 dodge stratus. It won't start. Tried


Make sure it's getting fuel. Try using some ether or starting fluid. If it rumbles to life but doesn't stay running then there's a problem with the fuel delivery system. i.e.... Fuel pump, clogged filter, pressure regulator.... If the ether doesn't change the results you are getting now then it's a fire or sensor problem. Ignition coil, relays, sensors not signaling, PCM... I wish you luck. Let us know how it turns out

Hold button on 2001 deawoo whats it for


The HOLD button works very similar to that of the SPORT button. When you press hold the transmmission will stay in the gear you are currently in. This feature was designed so you have continual power in ascending hills without shifting. You can also use it when going down hills for constant engine braking so you have less wear on the brakes.
