This sounds like a carburetted model and needs to be looked at by someone who know carbs. What happens is fuel continues to leak down the venturi of the carb and the engine "diesels" by precombustion. If this carb can not be repaired, get an Edlebrock to replace it. Low maintenance and good perfromance.

Prestige Car alarm keeps locking my doors. Even when I unlock them. Sometimes they stay unlocked for a short time. But eventually lock myself In the car or outside the car.

All car alarms have a timer. Once you unlock, you have a short time before it relocks. If you unlock it and just sit in the car, the car will lock itself. You have to do something like start the engine or turn the key to the auxiliary position and listen to the radio. Then the car knows that it is being looked after. The timer can be preset or it may be adjustable. It is better to leave as it, because the doors will lock if you forget.

Many cars will lock the doors automatically with you inside it as soon as you put the car into gear.

2006 Kia Amanti... the brake lights stay on

If the brake lights stay on even if the car is turned off (or even if it is on) the first thing I would be checking is the brake pedal switch under the dash. Brake lights are activated when the brake pedal is depressed and comes off the switch or the return spring is broken or stretched not allowing it to fully return when foot is taken off the brake pedal.

I have a 2002 Volvo v70, 2.4t . The signal light on the right side stay on at all the time

I would think it is a short in the turn signal switch but I wonder how it is getting power with the key switch off.
I would unplug the switch and see if the lights go off. Could also be a short in the hazard switch.

Headlights keep coming on after lights are turned off and car is off

Most of the time a car's computer is on at all times. Try disconnecting the positive cable to your battery with the key out of the ignition.Depress the brake pedal a couple of times;this should drain the power in the computer.Reconnect the positive cable and the car's computer should be rebooted.Good luck!

On my 2000 chevy implala I was driving with the highbeams on and when I went to turn them off they just stayed on. Even when I turned the car off they stayed on and killed my battery. No matter what I do...

either your headlight switch has shorted or your relay has shorted. The way to tell which one is to pull the relay out of the relay box. If the relay clicks as you take it out or put it back in, it is working and the switch is bad. If it doesn't click, the relay is bad. The relay is usually in the relay box by the battery. Let me know if this doesn't work or if you have more questions.

Interior lighting stays on

First check your dimmer switch to make sure that you do not have it turned all the way up where it clicks.This is how you turn on your interiors lights in many cars.Second,Make sure there is nothing jamming your doors open,even slightly, and making your interior lights stay on.Third,if none of these are the culprit,check your doors switch inside the jamb where your door swivels out.It may be broken or not operating properly.Check the wiring that is insid the jamb.Many times when and if there is a rubber cover between the jamb and the door,the wiring can break and cause a short.Which in turn grounds out and may cause your lights to stay on or not at all.Hope this helps some;)
