I got my 2002 chevy blazer with ZR2 package into deep water and shorted out my 4 wheel drive control module (located under the kick plate on the passenger side). I took the module out and had it replaced by a friend. Now when I drive it the 4-wheel drive does not disengage even though the lights on the dash show that it switched into 2-wheel. If I unplug the module the 4-wheel drive disengages but when I am driving it at low speeds ( < 10 MPH) it feels like something in the front end is bin

I have a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 6cy 4.0L. When I come to a complete stop it jumps forward about an inch or so when I have my foot on the brake.

When I take off it feels like im pulling something really heavy (barely moving but im giving it alot of gas and the rpms are around 2 1/2 when it starts to go) but when I get up to about 10mph and above it will accelerate just fine.

My 04 Trailblazer just had body work that required the battery to be disconnected. When I picked up the car. it seemed to be fine. After driving it in the rain for two days.the power door locks and dome lights started comming on and off continously when driving. The security alarm would sound after the car was parked for hours. Now the interior lights stay on unless I manualy turn them off at the dash switch. Seems to do all more so when the weather is raining. Any suggestions?


Sounds like a short in the wiring. Was the body damage in an area where the wiring could have been damaged also? You should take it back to the repair shop and tell them what is happening. ... 2004 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

Have a 1997 Honda Civic Accord (LX),not sure of model..When headligts and parking lights are on and I go turn off Headlights, etc. The parking lights stay on. I removed the fuse for the parking lights and they go off. Didn't realize it also lights dash. Anyway, could it be the headlight switch. if yes, is it something that is easily changed out or is it something that should be done by a trained person?

Shifter just yesterday i was trying to reverse out of a parking lot when i realized my shifter wouldnt go out of park, so i took the outer casing off and there was a safety there that was supposed to allow you to shift out of park when the car is off, i tried it didnt work so finally i messed with it some more and pushed in a certain switch that im guessing the brake is supposed to engage itself and it shifted out just fine as long as i press in this switch, im just wondering if a fuse or someth
