Car dies when going over really bumpy roads

If the brake pedal goes hard right BEFORE the car dies, and not after, then you could have a problem INSIDE the brake power booster. try to verify this next time it dies at a stop, if you can safely pull the dead car off the road into a driveway (or try to make it stall in a bumpy parking lot) - then before you try to restart the car, open the hood, pull off the rubber hose where it's plugged into the brake power booster --> you SHOULD hear a big "Swoosh" of air being sucked into the booster because there's supposed to be a strong vacuum there even after the car stops running. if you get nothing there, your car is dying of an excessive vacuum leak through the brake booster.= bad booster.

I have a 1998 blazer. The back hatch window lock keeps acting as if wants to open. There is a noise the whole time you drive unless you hit the button on the dash to open the window.

that is the sound of the metal hatch on the window rattling against the locking mechanism. you especially hear it when you are driving on a bumpy/rocky road. you can wrap the metal latch on the window with some electrical tape. It quiets down the noise. if you can get a hold of some liquid rubber that will work and stay better...

Blower didnt work yesterday morning but in the afternoon it did. Now dosent work again. The fuse is ok.

I assume you mean the heater - it could be something is lodged in the squirrel cage - take it over a bumpy road and try again. I had this happen with my prior car - something from the glove box fell behind the box and got trapped in cage - we pulled it out and it worked fine.

the blower motor is under the passenger side dash board.

Good luck!

My passenger side,and rear power windows dont work and my lights dim when i try and let the passenger side window down the rear windows cause the car to do nothing. when i first bought the car the rear...

The motor on the passenger side is shorted and is now tripping the circuit breaker. Odds are, the back window motor is also bad. You have to take the panel off to check the motor. You can power it directly to verify it has failed.

Passenger side window

Same thing happened to me. There is a button to the left lower side of the steering wheel that I pushed while cleaning the dash. Drove for a year without being able to raise or lower the passenger window. Accidentally pushed it again one day and voila! passenger window now works. I think it has a red X on the button and it isn't real clear what it's for. Give it a try!. Mine is a 2003 Celica.

03 Chevy Venture....Clarification Passenger Window stuck down.

It will be in the switch lift up the controls on both the drivers side and passenger side the wires going into the connection wiggle then and the button at the same time if you get any movement then you have a broken wire if not use a test light hook one wire to some metal and the other to the wires if their is any power the light will come on, if no light then you probably have a broken wire. The passenger side power comes from the drivers side control. When you open the doors you will see a large black set of wiring harness in the door going into the side under the dash that is the wiring harness for all the power windows and door locks, open it and test those wires for power.

Shuts off will driving, especially if I hit a bumpy road.

check the wires to the fuel pump if they have rubbed against something and the insulation wore through hitting bumps or rain could cause it to short and kick the relay and resets again and will start

All gages dont work

I had the same problem and noticed when I went on a bumpy road that the gauges started working again. It is a short in the wiring because if you hit on the instrument panel with your hand the gauges will work again.
