Question about 2002 Audi A4

2 Answers

Was going about 50 miles per hour and then braked abruptly for jagged steel plate in the road. Car braked just fine, but the battery light turned on and the car died. We pulled over to the side of the road, and have tried restarting the car. The engine isn't turning over.

Anytime you think there might be an issue with your braking system it is worth getting it checked out. Brakes are one thing that not only puts you at risk, it puts everyone on the road around you at risk.

04 Jag xj8 set brake code is on---limped home


When this happens, usually you have to replace the Computer. There is a chance you just didn't reset it when you took to cables off. Remove them and tape or hold them together for 5minutes or longer. If it still does it, I would get a book and find out where the code is to lead you. With the obd it only gives you a starting point in the diagnosics. You may have air in your lines that need bled, a sensor out, or just plain adjustment of the cables. But it shouldn't go into limp home mode unless you lost your Engine Control Monitor. Oh, I didn't click the read more button. Check the E-brake cables. You may have run over something that hooked it and ripped it loose. The Jags can tell if the cable is too far out of adjustment. It's under the car, cable should go through the floor and run to the rear of the car and Y out to the rear wheels. Good luck.

1995 Ford Taurus LX - Lights dim when I accelerate-battery/alt ok


I personally Would not drive it any Further than the Mechanics Shop. It can be a Couple of things causing this Problem. Check the Belt Tension and Belt Tensioner. If the Belt Tensioner is not Keeping the Belt Tight it will cause this Problem. It could also be the Brake Master Cylinder Going Bad. It could also be a Brake Switch that is going bad and is Shoting the Lights. Have them Check ALL of these Things. Let me know if you need more Help! Please rate my Response, I need all the Help I can Get! Thanks!

First try changing the fuel filter. It is extremely easy and costs about 12 dollars at Wal-mart. If that doesn't work than try changing the fuel pump itself. Little more costly but still pretty simple to do.
