Question about 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 Sedan

1 Answer

Electrical Failure of many features.

I recently jacked up one whole side of my 2007 Charger R/T up so that the wheels were off the ground about 4 inched, frontand back of the same side of the car, to istall a undercar lighting. After righting the car, the BAS/ESP warning light stayed lit, the turn signals, horn, high beams, and wiper blades don't work. Is the a sensor that has to be reset from lifting both wheels of the same side of the car so that it was on resting on only the two wheels on the oppposite side? How do I fix this? Is it a main fuse? Is there a common plug the affects all of these? The engine does starts, no problems there.

Well, for starters if your car has a stabling system on it, you can check your owners manual for jacking the car to see if it tells you to turn off a switch and where the switch is and you can reset it by turning it off and then back on again and starting the car, it will then relevel the car.... lincoln has this on their vehicles, switch is supposed to be turned off before jacking the car ever. If there is no switch, then dealer needs to see the car. As for the lighting, it sounds like you might have cut or spliced into the wiring system for your lights. I would start by checking the fuse for those lights and seeing if its blown and replacing it. If it is the fuse, and you replace it and it blows again, you definately hooked up your wires wrong...maybe put a ground wire to a hot wire which will blow the fuse... if you can't find the problem, take the car to the dealer, it's under warranty still I am sure.

2003 chevy astro van w/AWD. AWD is not working at all.

what was your test to determine the failure ?
if you jacked up one end and the car didn't drive off the jacks , that is how an all wheel drive works
It has a differential in the transmission that allows the front axle to drive at different speeds to the rear ( same as one wheel on the axle will go faster than the other when going around corners)
it is used to prevent torque wind up in the drive train and destroying transmissions , diffs and drive lines
it has to have all 4 wheels on the ground so that the 3rd diff is not operational unless going over a speed bump or dips in the road
however if you have a 4 wheel lock for the transmission, that is different as it locks up the 3rd diff in the transmission making the car a 4 x 4

Replace brake pads on 2007 vw polo

Park the polo on level ground, turn the engine off and apply the parking brake. Pull the hood release handle and move to the front of the car.

Lift the hood and remove the master cylinder. Remove one-half of the brake fluid inside the reservoir with a syringe.

Loosen the lug nuts on the rear wheels with a tire iron. Place the jack beneath the frame at the back of the Volkswagen and lift the back tires off the ground. Rest the rear axles of the Volkswagen on two jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and take the rear wheels off.

Reach behind the brake caliper to locate the caliper mounting pins. Remove the pins with a 12 mm socket and ratchet. Lift the caliper from the brake rotor and suspend it above the wheel assembly with a bungee cord or wire coat hanger.

Remove the rear brake pads from the slots in the caliper bridge. Inspect the caliper bridge and rotor for damage and significant wear. Replace the rotor if it is warped or badly scored. Scoring of the rotors can lead to break failure and will prematurely wear the new brake pads. Place new brake pads into the slots of the caliper bridge.

Attach the piston depression tool to the caliper. The tool will fit over the back side of the caliper and against the piston inside. Twist the tool's handle to force the piston into the side of the rear caliper. Remove the tool once the caliper piston is totally depressed within the caliper.

Replace the caliper onto the caliper bridge and screw in the caliber mounting pens by hand. Replace the rear wheel onto the wheel bolt and screw on the lug nuts.

Repeat the process for the other side of the rear of the polo. Lift the rear end of the vehicle with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the rear tires to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

Return to the engine compartment. Remove the master cylinder cap and check the level of brake fluid. Place a funnel into the container and fill the reservoir with brake fluid as needed.

How do I change the wheel on a Kia Sorento 2008 (no manual)

start by breaking the lug nuts loose before you put it on the jack. Place the jack behind the wheel on the lower control arm where it going to have the strongest support, closet the the back of the wheel hub would be good. then raise it and change the wheel, then get the lugs good and snug, but wait to really crank them down tight till you have it back on the ground. If you try to torque them down really tight while it is on the jack, you could accidently knock it off the jack. Also be sure you are on good level ground for the change. Don't sit on the ground with your legs under the car either..... I have seen many people do this, and it is dangerous.
