    My car only starts when the engine is cold. Like in the mornings. The mechanic said it was the starter sensor?
    When i try to turn it on it just turns over and over and sounds like its going to start but does not.

      I have had a security key issue before. The computer would forget the programmed keys, so the jeep would just shut off while driving randomly. A few minutes later everything would be fine. No idiot lights on in the dashboard. The dealership found out that there was a problem with my computer. $750 later it was fixed.

    Why does the fan only operate on the highest setting?
    This now happens all the time, with the a/c switch on or off. We've seen this get worse over the last several weeks. Initially the lower fan settings would begin to work after the engine warmed up.

      Blower motor resistors divert power or ground through resistors to control blower motor speed, it's controlled the lower speed.

      Note: the High blower motor relay controlled the highest speed.

      Update: turns out the serpentine belt was incorrect causing the power steering pump to run backwards. After a while the noise started up for some reason. Fixed now

      No dash lites no crank, nothing? I'd have to make sure the battery has a full charge. If you have a digital multimeter, we can help you do some testing. Some of the national brand auto stores will check the battery for you, if you take it to them. Some auto stores will make house calls if you live in an area they serve.

      I'd have to do some testing, like I suggested. If the starter motor won't crank, I'd check the circuits at the starter motor, voltage and ground.

      You have to be sure battery and battery connections are in good shape. Otherwise we can't do any testing. The generic spec for a full charge on battery is around 12.6 volts.

      Have another trusted repair shop inspect the vehicle to provide an estimate. Also, be ware of any repair shop that will not allow you - the vehicle owner; to examine the parts, examine any parts invoices - or obtain detail.

      Remember, this is your vehicle and your money being targeted - you have the option to refuse the work quoted and to take the vehicle elsewhere.
