SOURCE: Battery and break lights come on and off

First, let me caution you to not disconnect the battery while the engine is running. This can lead to Electronic Control Unit damage (that's the engine computer, etc etc etc.)

Secondly, it sounds like you have an alternator issue. You will need to have the alternator LOAD tested to make sure that it is charging properly at all times.

You may want to have the battery checked for the correct application also if you think it may be too small (although physical size is not always indicative of the amperage output capacity of a battery).

Hope this is helpful.

What can cause my ford escape not to unlock at times


I'm assuming you are using the key fob remote the contact's inside the remote are not staying in contact with the battery if you squeeze the remote in the center then press the button it should work if you replaced the battery recently if not that battery maybe weak and needs to be changed if your using the door switches inside the car while trying to unlock the doors this also could be the switch contacts are dirty and burned and can be cleaned with alcohol and an emery board lightly to remove the burns from oxidation to get them shiny again

Dashboard lights out


Try disconnecting the negative bbattery cable for 5 minutes to reset the system control module, if that doesn't do it you will need the dealer to look at this.

I REPLACED BATTERY IN KEY FOB FOR 2009 MITSUBISHI LANCER AND NOW IT WON'T WORK


hey guys. I own a 2013 lancer ES. My remote key fob stopped working because the battery ran out. I replaced the battery and it doesn`t lock and unlock the doors anymore. The fob because its lights come on and a locksmith checked that and it`s definitely working. I checked the WEB and youtube for reprogramming but all the tutorials were for 05-12 models. I also did the manual instructions but nothing happened. The dealership told me they charge me 220 dollars for that. I only have one fob, it is the only i got from the previous owner. Would you plz help me? thanks

Check the ignition switch steering in column, it goes bad also over time, you cant fix or rebuilt it and its expensive unit, will have to buy a new unit or one from a junk yard, assuming the battery has a good charge and new starter. try to play with the ignition switch by turning the key back and forth many times and see if you get some kind of contact to the dash light or starter while everything is connected.

When my truck gets hot it doesn't want to start. Sometimes if you wiggle the key it will start, but when it doesn't start, it makes a clicking noise.


the clicking noise is most likely coming from the solenoid on the starter motor, the solenoid is like a big switch with contacts inside of it,when you turn the key to start the engine these contacts come together to transfer the power to the starter motor,if the solenoid can't be taken apart & the contacts cleaned or replaced it will have to be replaced.......hope this helps....cheers
