      well you need to test it could be the light sensor which is usually mounted to dash and looks like a little dome near the base of the windshield. Or it could be the headlight switch. Do the lights work when you turn them on manually?

      Replace the oil pressure sending unit located at the rear of the driver side of the engine next to the cylinder head, just above where the transmission and engine meet and are attached. It is standard procedure to replace the sensor with what you said is happening. Don't set your hopes too high.

      Try another key. The transponder in the key may have failed and now the key does not communicate with the receiver and will prevent starting. Try a different key.

      Bank 1 sensor 1 would be the oxygen sensor for the rear bank of cylinders (firewall side) and it would be the sensor before the catalytic converter.

    Why does heat comes out when the AC it turned on?
    Yesterday I tried turning on the AC in my 1999 Mercury Sabel, but the heater came on. Last week the AC was working fine.

      A faulty blend door actuator can do this. This is the small motor that moves the air door and mixes cooled air with heated air. It's posityion is determined by the temp control knob. You should see an immediate difference in the temperature of the air and the sound of the air as you move the knob from hot to cold and cold to hot. If you hear no change it is likely that the actuator is faulty and has become stuck in the heat only position. It is not hard to replace.

      When the AC was working I could hear the sound when switching from hot to cold but now I don't. How do I fix the knob if its stuck on the heat position? I've been doing some research and I was thinking about replacing the ac temperature switch, do you know of a website where I can find that specific part? Thanks for the answer.

      It is not a problem with the temperature control knob, it is the actuator that is supposed to move when the temp control knob is turned. Get a repair manual for your car and follow the steps and pics to replace the blend door actuator. >> http://www.autopartswarehouse.com/.../MIYH1759.html

      when you try to put the cruise on what works and what doesn't?

      1.) When you turn the cruise master switch on does the light light up?
      Yes: continue
      No: Check fuses and relays related to cruise control

      2.) If you set it does the light on the dash come on?
      Yes: Replace cruise control actuator
      No: Replace master control for cruise

      Hope this helps!

      It is possible that there’s a frayed wire in your fuel sender and when you put it inside your fuel tank it touched the fuel tank (body ground). Check the wires and connection of your fuel sender.

    Rear suspension problems. Tires hitting wheel well
    The rear suspension is not holding enough of the weight... when we go over a bump or out of a parkinglot the wheels hit wheel well.

      Your rear suspension components may be failing. Check the condition of your suspension components you can visit this link to have an idea how to perform it http://www.automd.com/.../

      If your car isn't sagging in the rear, and you don't have plus sized tires, and you don't have an excessive amount of weight in the rear then it might be your shocks. Go to the rear of the vehicle and bounce the car up and down when you stop bouncing the car it should go up then down and settle in that position. If it bounces more than that after you stop bouncing it then you will need to replace you shocks.

    Where can I find a key for the wheel lock?
    I had tires put on and they lost my key for the wheel lock. They never got back with tme to replace it. I need brake work now, but need the key. Thanks!

      Basically you can't. Mechanics generally just beat on a impact socket to remove locks. this may cost you, so go back to the tire place and ask them to remove or replace them, it has happened.
