Please help me took my 2001 monte ss in to have the manifold gasket changed. Mechanic calls to say he likes to change the oil at the same time so i approved the work to get a call that says i started the car when it died it refuses to start again. Radio is locked now that he has tired so much to start the things that normally fires right up. mechanic is suggesting that i have a spun bearing could this happen just changing a gasket?

Try unhooking the cars battery for fifteen minutes then hooking it back up. they probably did this at the shop when they were finished to clear the engine trouble codes. my car radio recently acted up all i had to do was unhook the battery then it worked like new.

Hi Charlie.....when you lock your windows ? I didn`t know you could " lock the windows " -- my `04 doesn`t have that feature ... you don`t mean lock your ya ???

bummer..I was just at the dealer for an oil change and switch my winter over to summer tires....I would have asked then...

unfortunately Charlie...I have never had that problem ... sounds like something to do with the wiring ??? does the sound come back when you unlock them ?

other than that.... how do you like your Subaru ??? how many yrs you`ve been driving ?

Hi, problem with 2007 VW Citi Golf radio security code.

The radio is in Lock-Out mode. You only get two attempts to enter the code, then it enters Lock-Out mode.
Put the key in ignition and turn on the radio for an hour (maybe a bit more). The radio should reset itself after about an hour and then you can re enter the code.
