I have a 2003 chevy malibu. I'm having problems with my blinker lights. They don't always work when I turn them on and at other times they work just fine. What could cause this?


Hello and welcome. this is almost always the hazard switch. inside the hazard switch is the turn and hazard flasher. the next time the turns dont work, try pushing in and out on the hazard switch and see if they come back on.

My 2002 camry will not lock with the clicker, and when I try to physically lock the car all the doors unlock. The clicker will set the alarm, it just will not lock the car.


Body control module and or electrical problem. There are many things to check to see which it is. First thing you should do is have the codes checked . BCM's don't always turn the check engine light on. Have them check all codes for all computers in the car. ECM, BCM, TCM, security, ICP. And there are probably some more. Write them down. Let me know. You will need a digital volt / ohm meter to do this work if your up to it. Buy or borrow one... This will take some time.

My subaru (1990 Legacy) sunroof won't open. There


Ever since I had mine, and when the previous owner did, had the same problem, except that this one hangs up. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I thought it was a faulty mechanism as we fiddled with it and then it worked until the next time. Same thing. . It also could be a faulty electrical system. I needed a new alternator, since that resupplies the energy and if it's low then some things might not work so well. During rainy season I don't use it. I'm always afraid it will get stuck open and I end up with an unwanted shower.

Took 2009 fusion sel for 4 new tires at local goodyear, when returned the front end shakes, take back still shakes, take back third time and the front doesnt shake, but the turn indicators don't work,...


sounds like you had the "new kid" working on your car. its hard to find good help these days. the service adviser should have had his better technicians look at it after the first numb skull laid hands on it. as far as the lighting problems i would say it sounds like a blown fuse or an unplugged light connector. you should have your ford dealer check it out and see if it looks like something has been tampered with. good luck. and try firestone complete autocare next time. usually better managed. usually.

I have a 1999 Mercury Cougar. The low beams and turn signals don't work. I've changed the multi-purpose switch on the steering column and the relay in the engine compartment fuse box. The fuses...


Electrical troubleshooting requires at least a multimeter without it is almost impossible to determine the problem. You want to focus on the question "why". Not "where". So you find out why the bulbs are not lighting up when you activate the switches. First activate the low beam then measure voltage on the wires if it is getting any. If there is voltage you know it is the bulbs. In electrical problems you must have an open mentality meaning don't assume right away that all the those bulbs can't be out at the same time. If the bulbs are good then look for a black ground wire. Tap a wire to it to then momentarily touch it to the body of the vehicle. It the bulbs lit up then it is a ground wire not making contact. Don't look for where it it just tap another wire to the ground. Fixing electrical problem doesnt always mean finding where the problem is but correcting the problem is just as good or better since you would have a better ground connection vice versa.

I have a 2002 Ford Expedition and the brake light will not turn off. We do not use the e-brake. can anyone help with this problem?


Your stop light switch has failed. This is the switch operated every time you operate the brake
pedal. This switch fails in one of two ways - always open (brakes lights don't work), or always
closed (brake lights won't turn off).

To replace a stoplight switch, first determine what type of switch you have.

If you have an electrical switch mounted to the brake pedal in the passenger compartment:

* Unplug the wire connector at the back of the switch.
* Unscrew the switch.
* Replace with a new switch. Adjust the adjustment nut as needed.
* Plug the wires back in.

If you have a hydraulic pressure switch that is mounted in the brake master cylinder:

* Mark and disconnect the wires.
* Unscrew the switch.
* Screw the replacement switch in.
* Reconnect the wires.

I want to change the battery


Unless you Have AoolCodes DEALER IS A GOOD IDEA




Disconnecting/Connecting The Battery

Always stop the engine before disconnecting the battery negative lead and make sure the battery positive lead is isolated i.e. wrapped in a suitable cloth.

WARNING: Radio code saving devices must not be used when conducting work on air bag or fuel systems. It must be noted that, when using these devices, the vehicle electrical system is still live albeit with a reduced current flow.

NOTE: Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes are known and, that no data is required from the powertrain control module as battery disconnection will erase any fault codes and idle/drive values held in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM). It is not necessary to disconnect or remove electronic control modules.

Always disconnect the battery before commencing repair operations which require:
  • The vehicle to be jacked up
  • Work on the engine
  • Work underneath the vehicle
  • Arc welding
Alternatively a Radio Code Saver may be used. With the battery disconnected, a Radio Code Saver will allow sufficient current to pass to maintain the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player memory, operate the clock and supply the door operated interior lights while isolating the battery in the event of a short circuit.

Reconnecting the Battery

WARNING: If the battery has been on bench charge the cells may be giving off explosive hydrogen gas. Avoid creating sparks, and if in doubt cover the vent plugs or covers with a damp cloth.

Always make sure that all electrical systems are switched OFF before reconnecting the battery to avoid causing sparks or damage to sensitive electrical equipment.

Always reconnect the battery positive lead first and the negative last, ensuring that there is a good electrical contact and the battery terminals are secure.

Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time.

Re-enter the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes and preset' frequencies, if known.

Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the powertrain control module have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes . Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the powertrain control module to relearn idle values.
