SOURCE: 2000 crown victoria -brake lites failed

You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.

SOURCE: 95 325 is e-brake doesn't fully engage

Adjustment will usually help, but try parking with front pointing down hill next time.(back in, apply E brake .) Emergency brakes usually hold better/well when vehicle front heading down hill. If it doesn't hold with front pointing down, then rear brakes need attention.

SOURCE: low beams on '99 chevy half ton pick up don't work

It is possible both low beams are out and you didn't notice until the second one failed. Have you tried to reset the lights with the dashboard switch?

I have a 2009 Toyota Fielder it has an automatic transmission gear box. But it has letters P, R,N, D-S & B.What do these leters D-S,B stand for?


P means Park. Put the shifter here every time you walk away from the vehicle. It is using the gearbox as a parking brake.It will roll a tiny amount as the park gear catches into position, but usually no more than the width of your foot. It doesn't matter if the engine is running or not.
R means Reverse. This is the position you use to make the vehicle go backwards.
N means Neutral. The Vehicle is NOT in gear so if left on a slope without the parking handbrake, (E brake), ON it will roll away.
D means Drive. This is the position you use for general everyday driving. It lets the engine use the whole of the gearing range.
S means Sport. This alters the setup in the gearbox to give the vehicle a slightly higher performance compared to the 'D' position.
B means Braking. More correctly called 'Engine Braking'. This is the gear you use if you are going down steep hills. Note some companies use 'L' instead of 'B'. It usually means Low, as in low gear.
It uses the gears in the transmission to create drag on the engine which acts as a braking effect. It helps prevent you 'riding' your brakes on really steep downhills. If brakes get too hot they don't work as efficiently.

How do I tighten an automatic transmission in a 2002 3.85 Imala?


this is normal as there is clearance built into the parking pawl in the transmission to make it easier to go from park to a gear. I`m guessing this happens when you put the car in park on a slight incline. if you walk up to any car and push against it when its in park it will roll slightly until the clearance is taken up in the parking pawl, this is the clearance that you have.

WHAT IF YOUR CAR STARTS ROLLING IN GEAR


Please be more specific. Most cars with automatic transmissions will roll forward in Drive or backwards in Reverse. If the car is on a slope, it can roll due to gravity, even backwards in a forward gear. If you mean the car is rolling when it's in Park, either the transmission is faulty or it's not fully engaging in Park. A third possibility is that you mean that, after stopping with the brakes, the car begins to roll with your foot still on the brake. That would be a brake problem. If you've had the car for a while and this is a noticeable change, take it to a mechanic and have it checked. Explain your concerns clearly.

it sounds like your shift lever is loose and now your Park/Neutral safety switch is out of position. Try, with foot on brake, holding key in start while you move shift lever slowly from park to low.

This is a tranmission linkage problem. The car may be in park but the linkage arm well sometimes slip of or sometimes just run crooked as you switch through the gears. My car has also done the same thing until I recapped the arm with a new lock washer

I'm driving an automatic gear car. At traffic light, do I put gear to neutral and pull handbrake, or do I continue to step on the brake. Any difference on either action.


just keep your foot on the brake. It cannot do any damage, the auto box is designed for this

If you put in neutral you risk making a mistake and selecting reverse. or may not select gear inadvertantly on a hill and roll backwards.

Have a 1989 cutlass ciera that rolls back a little when put in park. What could that be? 2nd issue is it stalls when you come to a stop.


the rool back is down to slack in the drive line,
ie prop and back lash in the diff, there will also be some back lash in the gear box as well, this is completly normal so dont worry about it,, however you should all ways keep the foot drake on till you have put the habd brake on then and only them slip it into park as if you keep letting it rool back and stoping in park you could snap of the park claw inside the auto gear box, that a pricy repair, so please hold the brakes on before you go into park,,,
as for the stalling part,,, how fast is the tick over when warm and in gear (in drive with foot brake on)
if its less that 850 rpm thats the problem,,, auto's realy dont like a slow tick over, there is a lot of drag on an auto box, at tick over it should hold your car from rolling back on a slight hill or even drive up it with out you putting any power on to make it pull away, they also creep forwards in gear by them selfs, thats normal too,,safe,happy driving!!!!!!!

Shift lever cable


It certainly sounds like something has become disconnected between your gear shifter and the transmission. If your shifter is in the floor, just take the cover/housing off and check it out. It will probably be fairly difficult to see anything from underneath the vehicle. Hope this helps. God bless!

Rolls excessively forward when downhill and put in reverse


No, it is not normal. Most people use only one foot when driving, no matter the conditions. However, in this situation I think you may be able to recover this issue by keeping your left foot on the brake, put the car in gear, LIGHTLY apply the gas then slowly remove your foot from the brake. However, I would strongly recommend that you take your vehicle to a shop that can service your transmission and see what they say. It could be just a simple adjustment.
