The check Transmission light comes on, along with the Air Bag light, and the volt meter climbs to 16. When all of this happens the car will NOT go. Well, it goes a little, but not very far and not fast at all. Friends say it's a sensor issue, but they never say which one. Any ideas?

Re: It's Acting Stupid
It is emission related.
Pull the codes from the computer, match the code to the troubleshooting
procedure, follow the procedure to find the source. Repair the source,
light will go out if that was the only problem. There are "monitors" or
self tests the computer runs the car through a drive cycle, if a
problem occurs, it may not run all of the self tests until that problem
is taken care. Therefore, another problem may exist. OR hook up a
scanner that is capable of clearing codes, and hope that none are still

You need to check for a loose ground again. The dash seems to have a loose ground. Your heat and ac are controlled by motors that get input from your switch. You might try following that harness and see if there is a loose ground. Other than that I don't have a clue. You might also check near the firewall and make sure the ground strap there was bolted to the engine.
check battery volts should be 12.6 volts. alternator faulty.check under hood see if alternator drive belt tight not too loose.with engine running alternator out put at battery should be 13.5 - 14 .5 volts.
Take a volt meter and put the test leads on the battery terminals,
red to positive,
black to negative,
set meter to 12 volts dc
If the meter reads less than 14 to 15 volts dc, the alternator is not charging and needs a new one.
CHECK THE ALTERNATOR OUT PUT USING A DIGITAL VOLT METER.IT SHOULD BE 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS.IF NOT REMOVE IT HAVE IT CHECKED AT ADVANCE AUTO OR AUTO ZONE.THEY WILL CHECK IT FREE.DUE TO LOCK OUT FEATURES.BESURE TO TURN OFF RADIO.BEFORE REMOVING THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.SO YOU WONT LOSE RADIO CODE TO PLAY RADIO.
If this problem is related to your repair i would be checking for a pinched wire somewhere. Try another scanner. Check to see if you popped a fuse.There are crash sensors in front. Make sure you didnt unplg one.
