I have had repeated incidents where my horn will sound during the night, and if I was using it as a warning to another driver. I have had it checked several times, and I was finally told that the airbag is probably what is causing the problem. Now my horn doesn't sound at all and this poses a safety hazard to me, my children and any other passengers as well as other drivers and pedestrians.

My heater stopped working. Then the heat would take at least a half an hour before coming on but would only stay warm when I was driving. Cannot keep my windows defrosted in the winter! very unsafe! also, my left, front headlight will go on by itself and will blink, without any key in ignition, it will still come on. Drving at night, headlights wouldnt come on but that front left headlight would blink. I can also hear a clicking sound when this is happening.

The contact owns a 2001 Mitsubishi Galant. When the contact attempted to roll down the two front windows, smoke poured out from the front passenger side window. He turned off the vehicle and noticed that a fire erupted in the front passenger side door panel. He personally extinguished the fire with water. After the incident, he noticed that the switch plate was melted and the sunroof, radio, and power window devices were inoperative. The contact has pictures of the vehicle after the failure. He is in the process of having a technician inspect the vehicle. The failure and current mileages were 91,000.
