You really need to have the computer scanned for codes, and if it is overheating do not drive it until you know what is causing it-if it has any type of warranty contact the seller immediatly and have it towed to them for evaluation, do not let this go. If it was sold 'as is', you need to get it to a good repair shop and have it scanned for codes, and fix the cooling issue, do not worry about the other issues right now.

    absolutely, that one broken wire is probably the cause of most if not all your problems-fix it, disconnect the battery for 5 minutes (to reset the computer) and see if it clears everything up.

My daughter just called. she said she had a "track on" light and heard clunking?

Track/traction light comes on when the ABS gets activated, the reasons could be low air pressure in tires, diffrent size of tires or VSS vehicle speed sensor wire loose or broken. If the rotation of tires are not the same the ECM thinks the vehicle is going into slip and activates the ABS so the driver can stear easier. ABS could also kick in if its raining or snowing.

2001 Pt Cruiser Automatic, electrical fan went out on 7/2/2011 and replaced immediately but ever since car is not running as it was. At first car was reving up after shifting into 2nd and before 3rd,...

What kind of warning lamps are on? Is the Check Engine light on? Is the ABS warning lamp on? Is the OD light flashing? If you want your daughter to be safe while driving, ALL warning lamps should be dealt with and properly repaired. I see cars all the time where the children are driving mom and dad's old car with warning lamps all over the place. Then the parents freak out when the son or daughter gets thrown through the windshield during an accident because the car has been operated for several years with the Airbag warning lamp on continuously. I'm not saying that this is YOUR case, but I can imagine that if the vehicle is running as bad as you say it is, there has GOT to be warning lamps lighting up all over your dash. Don't let anyone tell you that the vehicle is OK to drive with ANY warning lamp on. Even if it is not doing any immediate damage to the vehicle, the problem is that your daughter is being trained to ignore warnings and when there IS a problem that can be dammaging to the vehicle or dangerous to your daughter, she won't know the difference! Again, I am not saying that this is how it is with you and your family, but I do see an aweful lot of this scenario where I work.

Without checking the car out myself and scanning your computer systems, this is the best advise I can give you.

An amber abs light is on my 1996 accord accord 2 dr lx -- is this a safety hazard ?

Any time the ABS light is on the ABS system is deactivated. The brake system should still function normally since the normal brakes do not rely on the ABS system to function. The only thing you will notice is that the brakes will lock up under a hard or emergency braking situation. My personal thought on this is at least find out why the light is on. If it is a relatively inexpensive repair that the added safety of the ABS system is well worth it. If it is a expensive repair that you'll havue to way the options. Under .the passenger side of the dash or behind the passenger side kick panel you will find two connectors not connected to anything. One will have three wires and one will have two. With the key off jump the two terminals of the two wire connector. Turn the key on and count the number of times the abs light flashes. It shoul be a series of long flashes and short flashes. The long flash is the first number of the two digit code and the short flashes will be the second. Post the codes and I will try to help you further.

Flashing heater coil from the start and brake lining with abs(?)lights constantly on after braking.

Well, the brake lining sensor is saying that your linings are low.
And the abs light tells one that the wheel speed sensor isn't detecting the right speed in a wheel. Need an ABS OBDII compliant Brake scanner to read codes in 1996 and later vehicles.

I do not know what the flashing heater coil is, though.

I need a year, make, and model to search.

ABS light appeared on dash for a few seconds before going out. What does ABS light mena?

ABS stands for Anti-Lock Braking system. The system could be triggered if you are on wet pavement or sliding and the brakes cannot properly control the vehicle deceleration. The vehicle could also have a fault in the ABS system due to a wheel sensor that is corroded or damaged. This type of problem is best left to an expert as the ABS system can be very expensive to repair.
