SOURCE: Hyundai Sonata 2003 FOG LIGHTS DONT WORL

No.. power is supplied to both bulbs in parallell... when power is present at one, it's also present at the other. Clarification needed - have you checked to see if you have power (battery voltage) and ground at the fog lamp connectors?.. if so, the problem is the bulb(s) it/them/self/selves. If you have an ohm meter or a test light, it's a simple procedure. Check the bulbs with an ohm meter. Then using a test light (12 volt, make sure the test light bulb is good by connecting it to a charges 12 v battery) connect the test light bulb to each of the fog lamp connectors with the fog lamp sw turned on and the ignition key in the 'run' position. If the test light illuminates at both fog lamp connectors, then the problem is in the fog lamp bulb(s) themselves. If not, there's a wiring/control circuit problem. You can go to http://www.hmaservice.com/ and register and gain access to lots and lots of technical info about your Sonata.

SOURCE: First: alarm went off on its own.(mazda 6 2003).

there is often a small back up battery in the immobiliser unit itself, if you can locate this unit and replace the battery with the ignition on / engine running, then it should not need recoding and work fine after that. The other thing that could be wrong is the key battery (if the fob has one) or the transponder chip in the key head. If the key signal is low the immobiliser lamp will light during driving, but this does not explain the alarm going off. That is more likely either a poor vehicle battery, alarm / immobiliser back up battery, or another electrical fault such as water leakage into a tail-light or even the alarm unit itself when it rains. A lot of alarms are voltage sensing and when the vehicle is parked they will alarm if the battery voltage changes for any reason, though not during driving so the battery in the immob is my first choice to look at.

SOURCE: car wont start. the cigerette light windows and

I would start near the battery and look for a broken wire feeding the fuse block under the hood. Also, look in the fuse block for a main fuse that could be blown. It would be very helpful if you would find a schematic for your car and see where the wires are connected and where they draw their power.

You are getting power to some devices, but not all devices. You will probably find a broken wire or blown fuse somewhere causing the problem.

Check first the condition of the oil. It may be low or need replacing. When you do replace the oil include the filter as well.

I would suggest to have a scanner connected first to the car to help you accurately diagnose the problem. Some shops would let you borrow their scanners or have your car scanned for free. This is the best way to avoid unnecessary expenses for repair.

Usual cause of failure other than bad fluid are, velocity sensors that may have gone bad. A dirty or bad solenoid in the transmission and debris in the gear valve of the transmission. Other errors may cause you to be limited at certain speed and engine condition for safety reasons which may lead us back to identifying first the possible error stored at the car's computer.

I have a 2006 chevy cobalt and the lock lite is on on the display dash and the car wont start .Also the radio and dash functions wont come on. I live in the bahamas and we dont have access to a chevy...


you will need to do a security relearn.
1.turn key to on position and leave on
2.after 10 minutes the light will flash and go out turn the key on to off 3x then leave on again.
3. do this 3 times for 30 minutes then after 30 minutes your 3rd time and after turning the key 3 times the 4th time start the car. it should start right up.

Vw jetta wont let me start it


It's an ignition problem. If you keep trying to turn over it will start. It's an anti theft device they installed. The little car with the flashing key. Someone likely tampered with your ignition before for this to happen.

Flashing maintenance required light


NEEDS AN OIL CHANGE. YOU CAN RESET IT YOUR SELF. HOLD IN THE "TRIP" BUTTON AND TURN THE KEY ON (DO NOT START IT) 5 DASHES APPEAR AND DISAPPEAR 1 AT A TIME THEN 5 "0"'S AND YOUR DONE. SOMETIMES THEY HAVE TO BE ON "TRIP A" BEFORE YOU START
