SOURCE: no brake lights

The two wires running the length of the truck are most likely a 12volt pwr supply,a ground or trailer brake signal wire.usually for charging a camper trailer battery and trailer brakes, check the brake lamp fuses in your fuse centre,most likely 10a.replace if open.if they still are inop,check with a test lamp to see if pwr is at the light sockets,(clamp of test light to good ground,usually white wire for brake)if no pwr is there then make your way to where the trailer plug was installed and check for pwr there(make sure your brake peddle is depressed during these tests,with key off as not to pwr up the park lamps)also check the ground at the same time(usually black)by reversing your test lamp(clamp to 12v)your brake switch could also be faulty(switch with button on arm of brake peddle).pick up a chiltons or haynes service manual to help with wiring diagrams and wire colors.

SOURCE: Corroded battery cable?

To do a good job if you havent already done it is to tip hot water over the battery term and it will dry clean ,,if corroded term then replace it but you dont have to buy with a new lead ,,only a positive term only and then hot water over the battery lug when new term on then spray with Hair spray .
If battery cable dident corrod with other battery then your battery is either charging more than 13.5 volts and or battery post to battery is cracked
Wash and spray then check first

SOURCE: Radio cuts out windows dont work

I have the same problem with my 96 camaro. I checked the fuses box and the radio, windows and IP dimmer fuses don't have power. More likely is a short in the motor of one of the windows.

yes you can just replace the battery terminals but try to clean the corroded part of the cable by a steel brush.

SOURCE: 2008 kia sportage with damage to tire valve stem,

Replace the valve stem or have it replaced. There is a special tool to unscrew the valve stem. Remove the wheel and tire from the car and depress the pin in the stem to release the air in the tire. When you have about 90% of the air out of the tire, insert the tool into the stem an turn counterclockwise to remove. After you install the new valve stem, get a ride to a gas station that offers free air and fill the tire up. As long as the tire is still seated to the lip of the rim (check just for your safety but I very highly doubt it unseated from the rim) and fill the tire to the cold psi rating which is stamped on the sidewall of the tire. If you want to check the tire itself for a slow leak prior to doing the steps above, here is what to do. Get a pan or plastic tub that is sightly wider and longer than the tire and rim. Fill the tub with water and set them it in the water (while it is still filled with air) and slowly roll the tire in place and look for small air bubbles to rise. If you see bubbles, there is a leak.

2002 chevy impala won't crank and if I disconnect battery and reconnect it will start


In most GM cars and trucks there is a hidden system that most people are unaware even exists. From the moment you put your key in the ignition, there begins a constant line of communication between your key's security chip or transponder, to the ignition's lock cylinder, and then to the car's TDM (Theft Deterrent Module). These 3 parts are in CONSTANT communication. If the key is in the ignition, then these parts are sending signals to each other. The security light illuminates when that signal gets broken, even just for a second. When the signal breaks, the car misinterprets this as an attempt at theft and goes into antitheft mode. The car thinks its being stolen or hotwired because it is not getting that signal from YOUR specific key. This link explains it pretty well.

Chevrolet impala driver power window switch buzzes windows will not operate


It is the most common problem of all vehicles with power locks or power windows, a wire has folded back and forth for 10 years in the door hinge area until it got stretched and broken. Possibley many wires. In your case only 7 years.

I have a 2002 Chevrolet Impala. My front driver's side power window began to struggle while trying to raise it. It soon stopped working and the other 3 windows stopped working as well (at the same time)....


hmm,switches are hard to check ,you sure?,if so check the wiring between the drivers door and the body,from the drivers door opening and closing more than the rest,sometimes the wires will break inside the rubber boot at the hinge area ,cut the boot and peek inside.

2001 chevy impala security light keeps coming on


This is a problem with chevy vehicles that have the system theft light. after a couple of years of using the key, the lock tumblers inside the ignition switch tend to wear out and so causing the system to think it's being stolen. Now you have to put the key in and turn the ignition to the on position, without cranking the car and leave it for 10 minutes until the theft light goes out. Very annoying especially if you're in a hurry. The dealer cost to repair the ignition switch goes for about $600-$800. that includes re-teaching the key.

2002 Impala engine died while driving, then started as usual


If you were to turn the ignition off when you are driving it would do the same thing. My guess is that a critical ignition wire is either shorting or coming loose when inertia exists through your left turn.

In park turn the wheel all the way to the left. Did the car die? Try wiggling the red wires connecting through the starter, battery, and such with the engine running. Also try wiggling the wires through the steering column to the ignition.
