Replace the Resistor located near the blower motor.Under the dash. It may be a little hard to get to. it has a plug of four wires and a couple of screws you have to remove. The reason your other problems are happening is because you disconnect the battery and the Computer (ECU) deprograms itself .

First check if the wires are still on the starter and tight. Then ..
While someone tries to turning the key tap on the starter body with a rod or bar, if this causes the starter to try and engage you have a bad starter.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Try to start. Dash lights, headlights etc. I get

You could have a start that has gone bad and will need to be replace,or your having a Passlock system problem.

Your Passlock may need to relearn the ignition keys, if the ignition lock has gone bad like my in-laws Grand Am Gt, here is what i did so they will not get stranded any more. Buy a Passlock by pass module for around $70.00. You can orderone from GMPASSLOCK.COM in the mean time try resetting the Passlock. Good luck

Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure
1.) Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2.) Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start.
3.) Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF.
4.) Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds.
5.) Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes.
The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6.) Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password.
7.) With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.

Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

No tail lights when the headlights are on

Check the fuse for the tails. If it's good, then possibly a shorted out light switch, or a problem in the body control module (BCM).
I replaced a light switch recently, without disconnecting the battery. When done, the headlights were fine, but no tail lights. Turns out I blew the tail light fuse by not disconnecting the battery before starting.
Good luck.

Recently bought a 2000 montero limited replased battery but next morning the battery was dead after driving it about 100 miles. I jumped it to get it started let it run and then checked the battery and...

For a battery to go dead on you like that there must be something draining the battery while the vehicle is switched off. It could be something like a trunk light which is not switching off or a short across some circuit that does not show up on any light. The first and easiest test is to disconnect the battery negative cable whenever you park the vehicle overnight etc. and see if the battery still runs down.
As a more positive step and if this does not affect the alarm, disconnect the positive lead from the battery and wire a bulb like a tail light bulb, between the terminal and the removed lead. The bulb should light up. Make sure that everything on the vehicle is switched off, the bulb should still be lit. Remove and replace the fuses one by one until the bulb goes out. That is the circuit that is running your battery flat. Check all the components on that circuit until you get the light to stay out and your problem should be found.

Just today had brake booster replaced. Arriving home after dark, brake lights would not turn off! Tried removing fuses-etc. - nothing works. Help! Battery will drain overnight. Thank you!

Your brake light switch is stuck. It's mounted just under dash above your brake pedal. Sounds like it wasn't adjusted properly. You can disconnect your battery for the night and reattach in AM to get back to repair shop for proper fix. Remember when reattaching cables, NEGATIVE CABLE GOES ON LAST

My Eclipse is having problems keeping a charge in the battery. I have installed a new alternator and battery and the battery continues to drain, making it impossible to get my engine to turn over and...

it sounds like you may have a parasitic drain on the battery. to check, you'll need a multimeter set to check amperage. disconnect the negative terminal from the battery, put the black lead from the multimeter on the negative post on the battery. put the red lead from the multimeter on the vehicles negative cable. you should see a short spike (a second or two) initially for the security system, relays, etc. after that, you should only see a draw of approximately 30-40 mA for the digital clock, radio memory settings, etc. it's also possible that you may have a bad diode in your alternator, which would allow it to draw current away from the battery when the vehicle isn't running. using the same method, check the battery drain after unplugging the alternator's electrical connector.

My lanos check engine light has been on from 6mos. of new. recently i scanned for problems and repaired problems. scan shows no problems but engine light still on. removed battery cable etc. with no avail....

First check that all plugs and electrical connections are well connected and try to unplug them and spray them with contact cleaner or wd40 will do it to. (Injectors connectors, air intake from the air filter, etc).

Also, open the ignition switch, and disconnect the battery (with the switch open), for 5 min., the close the switch and connect the battery. this will reset the car´s "computer".

Maybe check that you have a good seal on your gas cap.

Hope it helps.

We got a 91 honda acorrd lx with new barriery and altanater and the car doesnt stay powered up

There's a good chance you have an open circuit such as the door or glove box even the trunk light stays on even though they appear to be closed this switch may not make a complete connection most switches are made from plastic and they wear over time... A simple test with a test flight will determine this .. disconnect the negative terminal on the battery and connect one end of the test light to battery and the other to the battery cable With everything turned off does the light stay lit if so you have a draw in which case you'll need to pull fuse by fuse until the light goes out all while holding the door switch in the closed position so not to get a false reading... This is the starting point in which to determine just that.

Battery keeps dying

Apparently the 03 wranglers have a tendency to have faulty fog light switches. It might be that your fog light switch is broken and they stay on all the time, and drain the battery. I just had this happen to me and realized after jumping it twice, that my fog lights won't turn off. Hope this helps
