problem #3

  • miles


Problems started with a buzzing sound emitting from the radio/speakers; then smoke started to come from the steering wheel; vehicle would not start on many occasions resulting in my having to be towed; electric window and mirrors stopped working; driver's seat lays back to furthest point (almost resting against back seat) and will not respond to controls until fully reclined--this continues to occur not only while the vehicle is parked but also while being driven; horn would go off when car was started and could not be shut off; both "service engine" & "service transmission" lights would come on continuously, even after service was done; traction control would engage for no apparent reason and would remain engaged until engine was shut off; while driving the steering became extremely tight and difficult to turn; steering made loud grinding noises when turning; interior lights and high beams stopped working; engine would die while being driven and would not take a "jump" charge resulting in having to be towed;
