My chevy impala keeps running hot eventhough the radiator and the fluid isn't getting hot. But after running for a short period of time or trying to drive for a short period the car runs hot and c

I would start by checking the fluid to make sure it's at the proper level, Then check to see if the thermostat is opening like it should. If you have good flow and you get heat inside the car but the car still overheats I think I'd be checking for blown head gaskets and head warp.

2005 F150 4x4, clock looses 3-4 min over a month period. Is this a start of a potentially expensive eletrical problem in the future?

Only if you want the clock to be accurate! Some of the clocks just run slowly (or fast)- it is pretty much normal. The clocks in my Fords do the same thing- have to set them about every 1 - 2 weeks to keep them within 1 - 2 minutes of the correct time.

Voltage draw on a ford 2003 zx2 when the the car is turned off?

Current draw (not voltage draw) must be nearly zero Micro-amps even with alarm system, clock time keeping, and computer memory support--otherwise the battery would discharge over a fairly short period of time. The higher the Micro-amps, the quicker the battery dies.

"Service Engine soon" light came on last night when i was driving

No it will not. If you just bought the car. no doubt it has problems and the person you bought the car from had cleared the codes. After you have driven it a few days, the light has come on. because the engine computer (ECM) has run the tests and if a a component fails the test 2 times it will turn the light on. Sometimes a good scan tool (tech2) can tell you the "miles since cleared" and you how how many miles ago that the computer was cleared of all codes.

Radio, clock, cigarette lighters not working

all on the same circuit. radio has two power supplys, one when the key on, and one all the time. aftermarket decks draw alot more than factory and this circuit may not be able to handle the extra load. look in owners manual and look in engine and interior fuse panels. it may say memory,clock,ecm keep alive etc. if need be check them all one is failed. now as for the engine light, most obdII vehicles use this circuit to keep computer memory alive... it will set a code for voltage lost. if you know your not overloaded or have a short, then its safe to go up to next size fuse,2.5 or 5 amp heavier. but thats it. if keeps happening you have a short or you may have to run a dedicated feed circuit for the deck. good luck youll find it

2001 RX 300 Electrical issue

there is a short in the car's electrical system drawing power from the battery, causing an interuption in the power (hence the clock resetting) and killing the battery. An experienced electrician should be consulted

Chime keeps going off

Have you tried fastening your seat belt?
If so, then you either have a short to your seatbelt switch, or a short to your door switch.
Check both connections for proper ground, and if that fails, then start to suspect a faulty seat belt relay or the relay chimer is faulty.
It is best to test these accordingly to the repair manuals instructions.

Power windows work intermittently on both our 1988 chevy pickup and our 1999 suburban. is this common or what? is there a simple fix?

If you all have not already solved the problem here is my experience with the same probleem. If all windows began to work intermittently and you can control all from the drivers side door panel it is often that switch panel that has gone bad and needs replacing. You can generally find one at a salvage yard inexpensively- this is a relative term as comparedf to a new OEM switch mind you.If the problem is consistent with one door/window it is often that switch that has gone bad. If you are handy with a multimeter you can test the lead going to the motor to ensure that you see the same results on the multimeter as you do in real time connected to the motor. If there is no inconsistency it is possible but rather unlikely that the motor itself is at fault. Motors generally fail all out or within a very short period of time once displaying any symptoms. Thanks fo using Fix Ya.
