I too had an issue with the dash controls, cruise ctrl, no speedometer. It happened all of a sudden on way back from Chicago. I think you may have the same issue. I put some change on the console in front of the display, which pretty much screams "PLACE STUFF HERE". Guess what, DON"T DO THAT!!!!. I had a dime lose it's way into the back of the display and shorted the whole Freakin thing out. $650 to repair.

Sounds like you off easy with the pump. Could just be a clog or some water. Some things to remember before you go back:
1) Was it producing large amounts of steam or smoke from exhaust? A strong antifreeze smell means head gasket. This will rob you of all power. Since you will get back when it is cold, before you turn it on, smell the exhaust pipe for antifreeze. If there are any of those symptoms, get it towed where you can do some major work.
2) If no smoke or steam from exhaust, and if you are certain it is not the drive train, know where the fuel filter is and what it would take to do it along side the road (Many need special tools to remove). If more than a few seconds work and your along side the road, have it moved somewhere safe (remember, a car broken down along side the road is more likely to collect other cars than other where else). Since you just filled up, buy a siphon and some gas cans, take a bottle of "HEET" and "Sea Foam" to put in the tank. They both control H2O if you picked any up at the last fill up and start at replacing the fuel filter.

First place I would check are the battery terminals. Remove them and clean the posts, re-attach and tighten them. You can buy a tool for cleaning the posts at your local auto store.

I fail to see why you tried to ruin the motor
& may have succeeded

Drive 60 miles AFTER it overheats
Then drive 3 weeks without wondering about
the overheating issue

Someone should take the car away from you

2007 Kia Optima front vents quit blowing air

If you mean the blower motor is not working at times, it can be the motor, a resistor, or the switch on the dash. Could also be a bad connection in the wiring harness.
When the blower won't work, a mechanic would check for power and ground at the motor.

I have a 2006 dodge caravan the dash goes nuts when driveing down the road

Could be an ignition switch on the fritz. My wifes 05 was possessed, and would turn on its radio when no one was around and no key in ignition.

Dash lights were wacky as well.

Trouble starting and blinking dash

I had exactly the same problem this morning after returning from the store. I replaced the OEM battery with an Optima Red Top Model 25. Problem gone. Chrysler OEM batteries rarely last more than three years. You don't need to buy an Optima, but they do last a long time.

Good luck....

Heater problem blower not blowing ?

Hi Steve, you're so close to the answer already.
The feed wire is broken and sometimes it touches and sometimes not. It might just be the fitting on the end if you're lucky.
I'd replace the whole wire just to be sure ;)

My A/C fan will not work always

the fan should be located under the dash on the passenger side. also make sure that the reostat connection is nice and tight this controls the fan speed and sometimes it can come loose due to vibration.

Remove the starter & inspect the contacts inside the starter solenoid housing. If they are burnt and/or worn, you will get this condition. Replace the contacts and the plunger, or replace the starter. I change contacts in my shop 3-4 times a week. Quite a common failure. The clicking noise is the plunger hitting one contact, but not the other, due to wear.
