If you have had no known problems such as unexplained battery drain, or power window cross opening (close passenger window from passenger seat and have driver's window open, etc.), your computer may need to be reset. Disconnect your negative battery terminal, take a half hour break (minimum) and reconnect the terminal. (Immediately) Drive car for minimum of 10 miles, preferably on open road (I have done this 10 mile drive three times to get a bad transmission shift back into line, after having the 2/3 servo replaced). Once the computer has gone through all its paces, the warning light systems, cruise switches and power windows should all function as designed. My cruise control had previously had to be turned on with the "Coast" button. Now it works again--as designed.

My audi a3 2.0 tdi has cut out and wont start seems like it is turning over realy easy it has done 53k there is and was no fumnny noises there is no warning lights or anything


I would suggest that you scan the computer for fault codes. There are different sensors that control ignition and fuel and any one of these sensors can cause the car to stall and refuse to start. The crankshaft positioning sensor could be the cause if it has failed completely. The check engine light may be burned out , therefore no warning lights.

My car stops just fine..it seems i have great breaks...but the (break outer lining ) warning lights comes on from time to time...is this ok..the car has 200000 miles...runs great...


Hi, though your brakes are fine now, the warning light is telling you the linings are getting thin. If you don't change the linings, the pads will eventually start cutting into the rotors. It is not something you need to do in the next week, but when the light starts staying on, I would get new linings. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Grandis. Something weird is going on. The alarm doesn't activate/deactivate. When I turn on the ignition key to accessory, nothing happens. The internal lights do not work. ...


It may start the engine fine, meaning it has a good ground, BUT, the ground from battery to the body is NOT. Make sure that connection is good and clean.

My car was running fine. shut it off and tried to restart it 15 minutes later - cranks, sputters but will not start. has spark and good fuel flow. throttle body looks ok. changed plugs and injectors. ...


Not sure if you have one fitted but if it runs while the key is in the start position but dies when you let it back to the ignition position it could be an open circuit ballast resistor. Can you smell unburnt fuel? What voltage is the battery at?
Not sure why the warning lights would blink.

The ABS and air-bag light are permanently on and a warning light


kenchyke, the shop may have disabled the air bag system to work on the car, and possibly forgot to activate it again. While this seems a bit odd to me that they could overlook this but, since it started after the work was done, you need to return it to the shop asap to have them check it out. Although the car runs fine, the abs system and the air bags won't operate, which could result in injury if you are in an accident (air bag will not deploy, abs probably disconnected).
