Wheels lock up? or steering wheel hard to turn? I would say you need to check your belt and tensioner.

Trac light came on on a left turn about 10 mph it flash and it beep and lock my front left wheel


Senor issues. Car thinks it is slipping. Pull the fuse for the TCS and see if that clears code and make your car derivable. If not, then try disconnecting the battery for 10-20 minutes. Otherwise, take it the dealer.

Car wont start and key stuck in ignition


Sounds like you are losing the power from the battery. Loose connection somewhere between the battery and the fuse box. The car is going into security mode (which prevents the car from starting). This happens when people change the car battery. Leaving the ignition key on for 10 minutes and the security light quits flashing. Car starts. I would be looking at the battery connections and other main power leads going the the relay center. Good luck.

Car shuts off, battery light comes on, steering wheel locks up, all while driving


I am assuming you mean you loose power steering when the steering wheel locks up, which would be a normal event if the engine dies. Same goes for the battery light since the alternator would stop charging the battery.
Someone will need to figure out if you are loosing fuel or spark when the engine dies, then troubleshoot the problem. It may be difficult to find if the mechanic can not duplicate the problem in the shop.

2005 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder intermittently won't start


try starting the car and while running disconnect the negative battery cable,if the car still runs turn on the head lights,if the car dies the alternator is weak. I think its weak and can charge the battery as long as the lights are off,but cant keep up when theyare on. so if drive most of the time in the day time you are ok as long as you dont have to start the car too many times. when you drive with the lights on and the engine slows to an idle like when you park the car dies. make sense?

1995 blazer 4wheel drive not always working


on the transfer case area there should be a relay to tell it to go in to 4x4. now once you put a blazer in 4x4 and no longer need the 4x4 En-gauged you will need to put the blazer in revers and back up 10 to 15 feet to get it out of 4x4 before driving.

Humming sound


it could also mean a low fluid problem. I'd check that first.

My transfer case is permanently engaged but no 4 wheel drive...


2 common problems that cause this are the vacuum switch on the transfer case and the vacuum actuator mounted under the battery tray. When the switch on the transfer case goes bad it pulls fluid out of the transfer case and pumps it into the actuator and destroys it. The switch only costs about $15 and are usually stocked at major auto parts stores. The actuator ranges from about $50 to $120 and most of the time need to be ordered. If you reach under the battery tray with the 4wd engaged and follow the cable you will feel the end of the actuator, make sure that it is pulling back. If not either the switch or actuator or both are bad. Hope this helps.

Lights flashing, seatbelt alarm sounding, outside temp. guage not working...


The body control module is the cause of your weird problems. Replace it.
