also might be ignition switch problem.

How do i know if my battery is going out


I assume you are talking about the lead-acid starting battery here.

1) The battery voltage at rest will read less than 12.5 volts.
2) With the headlights turned on try starting the car. If they dim considerably when cranking then the battery is likely almost useless.
3) When cranking the car the engine will sound as if it is being turned very slowly.
4) When almost completely dead the engine won't crank when starting and you may hear a clicking sound under the hood/bonnet.
5) When completely dead, even the dashboard lights will not illuminate with the side-lights turned on.

I own a 1999 Buick Regal GSE with 94K miles. I recently noticed that my dashboard lights sometimes come on, and sometimes don't. Sometimes, during the day, if my dashboard lights are on, and I pull out...


In the 99 Regal, the headlamp switch is also the dimmer switch for the instrument cluster.
With the headlights on, try rotating the switch to bring up the "nighttime" intensity.
If the headlight switch has a pre-set dimming function for the instrument cluster lighting (in other words, not adjustible by rotating the knob), then
replacement of the headlight switch would be the only way to fix the instrument cluster lighting problem.

My grand am wont start. when i try to crank it turns over slowly without ever starting, which turns into to like a grinding sound that gets slower and slower until i am left with just a click click click...


Dear Sir,
As you said when you try to start sound come and end it with a click click sound it clearly symptoms that battery low and as you said light are also dim, if you charged battery same problem you have, then check wire which run from battery to starter is lose or not and 2nd wire which runs from battery to body ground if both are ok, then sir it is problem in starter motor armature is short with body, replace that or better replace full starter assay.

I have a vw golf Wolfsburg 99,2.0 & my passenger front window won't go down. Is there something I could test or should I just assume it is the electric window regulator? thank you


turn on the interior light,then push passenger window switch to lower window if light dims then its not regulator(motor)that will give you something else to look for!! also make sure drivers door iso switch is on

Vw golf est dashboard coil or spring shaped


thats the heater coil symbol for the diesel engines.
does it stay solid at beginning as normal?
if the car drives normal, then maybe its just a loose connection/wire somewhere
