Hello. I feel your pain. That said, it is now 2010 and that dealer most likely will not repair these things for free. You can certainly ask however. Personally I would look in the yellow pages for an auto electric shop and take the car there for an estimate, in fact go to more than one shop for estimates. When you are comfortable with the shop and the price have your repairs done so you can enjoy your vehicle once again. Regards, Joe

Something is draining my battery 134,000 M


IT costs nothing to have a load test done on the battery to check for a dead cell which your problems point to. While the engine is running the alternator will be handling the power requirement but the battery will not supply the power required to start.

Car will not start


A simple jump start with battery cables should get the car started and recharge the battery. If you don't like dealing with battery cables, there are products that attach from inside the car using the cigarette lighter to jump start the car that work very well.

Low beams on 2004 chevy trailblazer wont work but high beams work fine.lights all work automaticly


Try changing the bulbs. No. They didn't both burn out at once. You probably drove for a while with one headlight, and didn't know it.

Black smoke from exhaust on a 2004 jeep liberty and the check engine light is on


The first thing you should do is to check your air filter to see if it is clogged. Locate your jeeps air filter and remove it. You will need to pop the clips off using a screw driver to be able to open the top. Take a close look at your air filter. Is it very dirty? If there is a lot of dirt on your air filter then this is the likely cause of your problem. When your air filter is dirty it will not allow enough air through to the engine causing your air/fuel mixture to burn rich causing the black smoke.

You can pick up a new air filter from any auto parts store. Once you have your new air filter in place, replace the cover and reattach the clips.

If your air filter is not dirty then your fuel injection system is where we need to look next. One of your sensors could be bad. The sensors that will be the most likely to cause black smoke is your Throttle Position Sensor, Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor and/or The Mass Air Flow Sensor. Typically black smoke indicates that the engine is getting too much fuel. Be sure they repair it before you purchase.

Hope this helps (remember to rating this answer and leave some testimonial).

Hello, have you tried to unhook the negative side of the battery for about 10 minutes and then go from there . It should reset the computer completely .

I just bought a 2004 Nissan sentra 1.8 S...I have two issues 1) my service engine light came on one day after I drove it off the lot. 2) there is no sound in left side speakers and both the right side...


the slimeball, um, person that sold you the car knew about the ck eng light. He cleared the codes, and after clearing the codes the ecm has to run tests, if a component fails the test 2 times, it turns the light on. You will need the trouble code to see what has failed. As for the speakers, did you find the balance knob on the radio?
