Why would breaktail lights remain on after the car is turned off the fuse has been replaced but the problem persists is this an electrial issue and how much would it cost to be fixed?
If brake lights remain on - check the operation and adjustment of the stoplight switch usually located at the upper end of the brake pedalMy lights remained on all day, draining my battery. I found a shim on the upper brake pedal linkage between the linkage and the light switch. The shim had rotted out -- if you're lucky, there is a spare in the hole next to it. If not, locate a new one.
check the wiring connections as it sounds to me that the illumination wire is getting a constant 12v feed, also check that the ignition wire is switching off with the ignition
Hey Humayun==It would help if you stated what kind of car you have. If you have automatic headlights there is a module under the dash that controls them and it is bad. On some cars, the lights stay on until the door is opened. GoodluckJoe
Dead battery, seized engine, lack of air or gas,
yes the clock remains on, otherwise you would have to reset it everytime you restarted your car
Peugeot 306 fan still runs after the engine is off and this is after a short journey.it has been a while since you put coolant in it and oil but could it be anything else?
My 306 does the same just had a new rad fitted and sensors so the fan keeps running till the engine cools just make sure it gets new coolent and a flush once a year along with an oil change .
Need to know the year, make and model and which fuse you pulled. More info please.
The relay is probably sticking. Go to where all of the relays are and start unplugging relays until it quits.
fill up all the tires at the recommended tire pressure and then there should be a small button low on the dash below the steering column that you press and hold with the vehicle running that should reset the pressure on each wheel
turn the inside lights off
if you leave the parking lights switch "ON" the lights will remain on, even if the car has been turned off.
I believe this usually this happens if the fuel / air mixture is not rich enough (too much air / too little fuel) which causes the cylinder heads to get too hot which means that any unburnt fuel in the cylinders will continue to ignite even after the ignition has been cut.
Why would a 1995 Ford Escort lights stay on even after the car is turned off usually after the car gets wet and you can only turn them off by pulling the engine fuse?
I would guess it's an electrical problem. Perhaps there's a frayed wire or something, that when it gets wet, completes a circuit to turn the lights on.
Camry 08 SE dome light constantly on Which Can't or don't turn off after engine turn off close the door or start driving. can't fix without taking out the fuse from fuse box to turn off the lights.?

2000 Buick Century-ABS light stays on after short drives and car turned off but not after it sits awhile?
First rule of cars. If your car is having trouble with the brakes or steering, don't play games. Get it fixed right away. YOUR LIFE depends on them.
your drain line for your ac evaporator core is plugged up. A service station can blow this out for you.
If a radiator hose remains hard several hours after the car has been parked does this mean it has a blown head gasket?
No most post '85 cars were manufactured with "sealed" cooling systems. It sounds like it is still under pressure.
What if your 1998 town cars has troubles with the steering wheel it spins freely and the wheels will not turn What is the fix for this problem?
If the steering wheel spins freely but the wheels don't turn, the steering shaft (which runs from the steering wheel, into the engine compartment, and down to the steering box) probably came apart.Usually there are one or more joints in the steering shaft, to allow it to angle around obstructions...
You replaced your battery and starter It still won't start It may be a fuse but all the fuses in the fuse box are good Where would a bad fuse be or could it be something else?

Why would a perfectly running 1992 Dakota truck stall when driving after setting for few minutes it starts back up the computer has been replaced and problem still exist have replaced sensors HELP?
I would check the CKP or Crankshaft Position Sensor first. The older ones had a history of failing when hot. The best way to check is to monitor the signal with a scope and see if the signal starts to break up as it heats.
A person can clean and reuse a air filter in their vehicle, but it is always best to purchase a new filter to replace the old one. If the filter has not been in the car for an extended period of time a short period of reuse until a new one can be purchased is acceptable.

Why would the blue temperature light in a '99 VW Beetle start flashing but stop after turning the car off for a minute and turning it back on?
Could be that the coolant level is a bit low and the flashing light is telling you this. The level will drop when the fluid is running thru the motor. When you turn the car off the level rises back to nominal level. Dan

t is probable that your wires are not properly grounded. Check the wiring and ensure that they are properly grounded. Antolin Andrew Marks.
Your car has been using a lot of oil but is not leaking ive had it for 8 months and put 11L in what could be the problem?
bad head gasket or valve guides or piston rings allowing oil to get into the combustion chamber and be burned. check exhaust for blue or black smoke when accelerating, or on first start in the morning.
A car shakes when stopped at lights but when you put on Neutral or accelerate it's OK why How much would cost to fix?
If this is a Ford Escort (aka Tracer) get the powertrain mounts neutralized, and if that doesn't work, just remember that Escorts are like that.If not an Escort, suspect low idle speed, misfire at idle typical of poor fuel control, or damaged or soft powertrain mount.== == low idle tune up out of...

We could use some more info such as year, make, model and engine size. Also need to know if the check engine light has illuminated during any of this and if so what were the codes set.
may not be the fuel pump OR just maybe the filter is clogged and maybe the same stuff that caused your first pump to go has caused this issue. did change the filter? did you install correctly? did you check the lines fo debree, this would be coming fro the tank end? Kadius1964~blog me.
Why would the Lexus 400 not run after you put it in park and turn the engine off and try to restart it?
It could be many things but it depends on what you mean by "won't run." I would need a little more background information. I will assume that it was running, and you parkd it, and then would not restart. Did it crank, or click, or do absolutely nothing? If it cranks but does not start there is a ...

What would cause the headlights to start flickering on and off and the headlight switch becomes hot after the car has been running for about 45 minutes?
Try checking the car manual or diagram at the fuse box and make sure it's got the proper fuse amp rating.. if someone replaced it with a wrong type, the wiring may be over heating from too many amps going thru it. Also get ahold of a wiring diagram and check the grounds.
How do you start a vw beetle after a new battery has been installed...The beetle will not turn over and the alarm is going off?
well to tell you the truth depending on the year model i would have to say you have a theft provention system which is disabling the starter, so it wont turn over even if batter is installed, that or your starter was fried from improper battery voltage.

Where is the horn located and what would stop it from working apart from the fuse which has been checked ok?
Don't know what kind of vehicle you have but most horns are located up front behind the grille area. The contacts at the steering wheel could be at fault and also the horn relay.If the horn is dead you should at least still hear the horn relay click. If you don't hear the horn relay click I would...

My car - polo 04 has been flooding a lot recentally. Why is this and does a flooded engine pose any other problems with a car engine?
I am assuming that the vehicle is a petrol injection vehicle and that the vehicle is serviced regularly (new spark plugs etc)? If so then flooding is cause by an excess of fuel in the cylinder that hasn't been burnt prior to turning the engine off.This fuel could be entering the cylinder due to f...
If Car headlights get dim and horn goes mute after few kilometer and battery discharges but it works fine without head lights what is the problem?

Why would you have to reset the date and time every time you turn on the car and how can you fix this?
If it is on the radio and most likely an aftermarket system they wired it wrong. There should be a wire that has constant power from the battery to keep up on the time. If its in the computer system I am not sure. Probably similar though like a bad wire so its not getting that power from the batt...

My thoughts would be either you'd need a complete rebuild or a new engine all together. DONT BUY AN LT1 CUZ YOUR CAR DONT...
Sorento tail lights not working even after checking all the fuses and also replacing new bulbs what can be the reason. will appreciate any help Email me Drillservehotmail.com?

What is the clunk that can be heard from the front when steering wheel is first turned either way after the car has been sitting overnight?
Cars have a "U" joint in the steering shaft and that is probably dry causing the noise. It won't hurt anything dry but you can lube it by taking it apart if you want to. Would this dry "U" joint on the steering shaft make noise ALL THE TIME, or only upon first turn of the steering wheel?

Why would a car have a long turn over when its cold but after the first start up it starts up right away?
In older cars, where your air filter is, there is a door that is suppose to shut when your car is cold. check the sensor on top of the air filter canister by placing a bag of ice on it and look to see if the door in the intake part closes, with the engine running. Look at rubber hoses to see if a...
