I turned my car on this morning and noticed a high pitch squeeky noise, like a belt. I drove it to work planning on calling the ford service place that is very close to work to see if I could bring it in today. It continued to make the noise the whole time I was driving. On the way to work, my radio cut off, then all my radio lights, then my interior lights wouldn't come on, and then my headlights dimmed and ultimately shut off. I pulled over, turned my car off, and could not turn it back on. I

I have brake light issues. I got pulled over because only the middle brake light worked. I pulled the assemblies and noticed some pretty charred looking sockets so i replaced those. Now I have perfect lighting when headlights are off, but as soon as the headlights come on the lights go haywire. They all work except the drivers side brake light. but if i turn it onto auto lights the driverside tailights dont work at all. I dont think its a ground or wire because they all work at one time.

Got a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan. It stated just fine, but when i tried to turn off and pull the key out it stayed running!!! Could this be the same problem as the wireless control module??? My buddy got it to turn off don't know how, but now it wouldn't start. No dash lights come up, can't shift, radio doesn't turn on, horn works, lights come on, power doors/locks/windows work. but will not start. So could it be the wireless control module??

I have a 1999 Ford Taurus. After a rain storm when I had left my driver window open an inch and a half. I used my headlights normally by using the on/off knob. When I had gotten home, I turned the headlight knob off and the lights stayed on. Also now my dash light doesn't work. I had to pull the 10 amp fuses to turn the headlights off. I removed the headlight on/off switch to see if the headlights would go off when I pulled both plug ins. They stayed on. Help me with this strange please.

My rear turn signal on my 2000 Buick Lesabre is not working. I replaced the bulb and it worked, but as soon as I tried putting the socket back in the light fixture, it went out again.

Is this something I can do or should I take it to a mechanic?

I have had my driver's side front wheel bearing changed twice and still have issues with the ABS light coming on sporadically and hearing the noise when turning sporadically. I just had the master cylinder changed and brakes have been checked. The ABS light was not on when the work was being done - so they could not diagnose that issue. Ofcourse, as soon as I left - the ABS light came on. Once the car ignition turns off and back on again - it resets it and then it may be a week before it comes
