Check the battery for a dead cell. Even no maintenance batteries have caps that can be removed. Once removed, use a battery tester (<$5 most auto parts stores) to determine if there's a dead cell. If no dead cells exist, then the charging system aka alternator/regulator have issues. Before doing further analysis, ensure that the connections are tight and free of corrosion.

1 st of all for a Dealership to tell you you have to live with it is beyond "Unprofessional Advice" .
sounds as if a possible crack in the frame or brake s will not cause a rumbling sound it has to be either wheel bearings or internal engine ...i cannot determine this just without being able to see /hear it for myself ....i would seek professional help obviously this dealership is of no use to you did you obtain the vehicle from them ..if so they most likely know the issue at hand and arre awaiting the warranty to expire

the windows have to be relearned, send the glass up and hold the switch in the up position until a mild click is heard, then send the glass down and hold until a click is heard. You my have to hold the switch about 3 secs. if it don't work straight away try again. repeat for both windows. Hope this cures it.

Many times the spring clips, also known as anti-rattle clips are left out or broken, this will cause a rattle in the wheel area, this was the case on my Corvette after the brakes were done by the used car lot were I gought the car, I put a screw driver through the wheel spoke and pushed the pad up and down, it should not move easily.

it should be part of the cooling fan module located on or near the fan housing depends if you have a/c trace the wiring from the cooling fan motors and you should locate it but the fans are controlled by the ecm. engine control module so that may not be the problem it may be perhaps a engine temp sensor there is 2 or a a/c prob if s got it.hope this helps

Resetting a Vehicle Anti-Theft System
This is how you reset an anti theft system if you have the anti-theft light on, or your car is cranking, but you have no spark.

Doing a full reset of the anti-theft system.

Disconnect both battery leads for at least two hours.
Hold the negative and positive leads together for 5 minutes to fully discharge any power.
Put the key in the ignition, but not turned on. VERY IMPORTANT!
Connect the positive lead.
Connect the negative lead in one swift movement.
Wait 15 minutes for the system to fully reset.

You can also ask any local auto-electrician or vehicle alarm installer to come and do it.

I have to say, they is pretty bad service from the dealership!
