    Why does my car stop when I drop speed while driving?
    When i'm driving a slow speed my battery light comes on and the car shuts off. For instance when I go into my apartments there are speed bumps so I have to drive at a slow at a certain speed the battery light will come on and the car shuts off then I have to restart.

    Blower will not shut off even when car is shut off. What would cause this?
    I have a 2004 Buick Rainier. I went to shut off the car and the blower on the passenger side under the dash continues to run unless I take out the fuse.

      Blower resistor is shorted internally. Replace blower resistor and you problem will be gone.

      I think that is a two piece hubcap. With a hubcap and center cap. The center cap attaches to the hubcap. and the hubcap has plastic nuts that attach it to the wheel lugnuts. You have to pry out the center piece first. If you pry on the outside edge you will break it.
      Not sure of your exact hubcap style, but typically you remove the center of the hubcap with a screwdriver or tire iron. You have to pry out the center circle. there is usually a small slot to fit your prying tool. Once the center cap is off you will likely see black plastic lugnut covers. The plastic nuts just unscrew with your tire iron. The plastic nuts hold on the hubcap. Once they are loose the cap will come off to access the lugnuts.

    My low beams will randomly stop working but the high beams work fine.
    Fuses, bulbs, relays all have been checked. I replaced the right headlight section because it was cracked. that worked for a while but didnt entirely fix the problem

      suspension components with excessive play, did they balance wheels correctly, or excessive CV joint play in axles.

      HOT AIR DRIVER, COLD AIR PASSENGER SIDE.‏

      The system is low on refrigerant, and only after it is confirmed if it is in need of refrigerant or not can the blend door actuator be a cause. This is a confusing symptom - cold on pass side and hot on the other, it even throws off good mechanics, but in the majority of cases the cause simply is that the system is low, The refrigerant only fills half of the evaporator and the half that it fills is directly inline with the pass side ducting and the other side that lacks refrigerant is inline with the driver side ducting.

      Note: Cool on the driver side and hot on the pass side is almost always caused by a faulty pass side blend door actuator. If it were the reverse (cool on pass side and hot on driver side the cause is always that the system is low on refrigerant.)
