Sounds to be electrical problem, check the battery connections, it may be corroded. If its corroded, take a sponge of water and place it to the terminals for a while , it will eat up the corrosion, clean it wth sand paper say a grit of 400- 600 and refit the wires to thte terminals.
Hope this helps!

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...

Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Just had the oil changed, drove the Highlander 4 miles, parked it for 1/2 hour, drove another 4 miles in the rain. Now the trac off light is on and VSC light and another light that looks like an engine....

You have thrown a code and need to have the computer scanned. it will tell you what has gone wrong and then you should know what to do. Most autoparts stores will read your codes for free.
Likely there is water contamination but if I was you i'd check my oil level and make sure those monkeys put the caps back on the oil filler tubes.

Starter not working on my 1988 Kawasaki Ninja

Hi, Sounds like your starter motor has developed a fault. Sorry cant give you a price for the fix but if money is an issue i would take a look on ebay for a reasonably priced replacement unit.
