Could be transmission overheating from lack of fluid.

Catalytic Converter could be plugged up and overheating.

Probably the cat converter is too hot
run the fault codes to check for problem fuel/ air control sensors

The catalytic converter heat sheild may have came off or the catalytic converter may be partially blocked up. Does the car feel like it is low on power ?

Reset abs light pajero


When the ABS comes into play from heavy braking you will feel a pulsating of the brake pedal under your foot. This is the brake pressure, on off on off as the wheels stop start stop etc. The ABS will not control the vehicle direction but by allowing the wheels to turn under brakes and not lock up you have control of the steering and the direction the vehicle goes.The ABS will not stop you quicker and in fact on ice or loose surface the distance to stop will be increased. As I said all the ABS does is give you steering ability under brakes.. Take the vehicle to an accredited brake shop and have the ABS tested if you feel that it is no operating properly

Heat while moving, none when I slow down or stop.


Double check your cooling system. Make sure it's topped up and that all the pipes leading from the radiator heat up during normal use, if not, you need a new thermostat.

Heated seats in Pontiac Grand Prix 2006 stopped working


If the light and the fuse are good then you probably have a open in one of the heated elements.You need to ohm the upper then the lower heater elements to see which one is bad.The connectors are under the seat.

I need a transmission,and need to no if my car is an awd or fwd also when i push on the brakes to stop if feel like the pad is push my feet back up and jerking what do that mean awd light comes on...


if you have an awd light coming on then you have an awd transmission(car).if the brake pedal is pulsing while pushing on it to come to a stop then it sounds like the rotors are warped and need replacing.this can be caused by alot of heat build up on the rotors,a lot of miles on them,the wheel nuts were not torqued when tightened,rotors are rusting and coming apart,a loose brake pad moving around.get the brakes checked.

I have no heat when I turn on my heater blower on a 99 silverado 1500


Two things come to mind one the flap on the inside of the air duct is not switching over to allow heat to come through. Second your heater core could have a blockage. Go under the hood find both heater hoses run your truck till it reaches normal operating temp then feel both heater hoses one at a time. If one feels very hot and the other feels cold or even luke warm you have a blockage.If they both feel hot then look into the duct works under the dash. There should be a valve that switches the door between your heater duct and your ac duct that may not be operating properly. Some valves are vacume actuated so look for a broken vacume line.

If it's coming from under the car, the most common problem is the heat shields on the exhaust system

Heated seat not working


Check the fuse panel under the driverside dash it's a grey panel, open it and on the back of the panel you will see the diagram of which fuse is which. I believe it is the bottom left hand fuse, but I would check it. There is also a fuse under the hood in the engine compartment that deals with the heated seats.

Heat don't workin 1998 for contour


Sounds as if your heat vent door is hanging up or blocked. When the car is completely warmed up and the heater is on, feel around under the dash near the heater system to see if you can feel any warm or hot air coming out.
