Question about 2002 Saturn L-Series

1 Answer

Just bought an L200 from a private party for our daughter. Has 71,000 on it and everything seems to be in great condition only the ignition "dinging" does not shut off. We bought this thinking it would be an easy fix. However, our expert here in Rice Lake says parts are not available and if they were, the next obstacle would be the computer programming. Please help!

This is a simple problem, its located on the ignition swith, theres an internal lever switch that conyrols the dinging make sure thats not broken or stuck, removal of the steering cover is needed, another problem is the dinger itself may be shorted, you can unplug it, the point of it is to tell you keys are in the switch or headlight are on, just unplug it.

Just bought renault senic dash board says check airbag what do l do

Don't know what the laws are where you are at, but did you buy it from a dealer or private party? If you bought from a dealer, he may be required to fix or replace. If it was a private party, their have been gangs of Ukraineians selling cars with no airbags and such. Hope it was a dealer. Take in to have it looked at. Many states have laws for this kind of thing, and a lot have buyers remorse laws that let you take it back.

I need advice ASAP! My son bought a 2006 Envoy on Tuesday from a private party. We had it looked at by 2 different mechanics. The engine blew on Wednesday. Any ideas to help get money back?

You would have to sue in small claims court and you would have to prove that the seller knew that it was defective and did not disclose that at the time of sell. Most used cars are deemed by law to be where is as is and buyer beware.

Why would my 96 chevy suburban start and run fine, then randomly not start?

It's not your alarm,it's your ignition switch which is about 250.00 then your truck will start fine. I chased that same issue around for two years and finally changed out the ignition switch not the key assembly but the wiring harness in the steering column.

2000 Ford Winstar, 80000 miles on it just bought

Seeing as how no one ever changes trans fluid and all vehicles tend to have some trans issues,I would say your best bet is to check with a trans shop and if your comfortable there, have it towed. Unless it is something simple,expect about a $2000.00 repair bill.

Depending on condition, location, mechanical condition, and features, right around $4000 private party sale. This is based on excellent condition of the vehicle. Now those Tdi are great little engines and will continue to run for a long time if properly maintaned.

Low beams do not work and bought the car with a salvage title and the dmv wantsa lights and brakes inspection to registar it. Any suggestions?

If you bought it from a used car dealer, it is their responsibility. If you bought it from a private party, it's probably on you. Say hello to your credit card or checkbook...

You still have to have the inspection, but check the fuses for the low-beams. They are separate from the high-beams

However, if the DMV says "you need this to register it", you need it to register it. They are probably going to ask for a safety inspection, as well. If you didn't make arrangements with the seller, then it's your problem. There are no "lemon laws" to protect you with private party used car sales.

Add enough oil to get the stick reading back to the full line. Oil can't either you are burning it or leaking . If you used more than two quarts in 400 miles, if it's burning it it definitely should be fouling plugs and smoking. If leaking, there has to be wet oil under the engine somewhere. Check everything over again to verify either condition.
