      The alternator is designed to supply the battery and accessory circuits through a wide range of engine speeds.

      The flickering symptoms is the cause of a bad alternator, the test from local auto parts stores couldn't detect it.

      AutoMD has been answered a dozen questions concerning this flickering symptoms. Replace it with a new alternator.

    Can I bypass the fuse box to make the tail lights and brake lights work?
    I have a short somewhere.when I turn the headlights on I have no tail lights and if the brake light switch is in it blows brake light and tail light fuse. I have replaced the brake light switch and the fuses but still have no break lights or tail lights.

      Most of these circuits travel though multifunction switch or turn signal switch. There is issues with them but it needs to be properly diagnosed where the short is. Fuses and fuse boxes are there for a reason. To protect components of a current overload. Bypassing fuse block increases chance of electrical frying or burning up components

    Easy way to put in fuel pump
    How do I know if the one under the seat isn't bad I didn't hear the fuel pump by listening at the gas top what do I do pulling my hair out
    • CVO

      1. Have an assistant to turn on the ignition switch, while you listen to the fuel pump running for 2 seconds from the uncap fuel tank filler. No noise, take the next step.
      Try giving the bottom of the fuel tank a few whacks with a flat piece of wood or a rubber mallet while another tries to start the engine. You have a 50/50 shot at getting the pump going again and the vehicle starting. if it starts as a result of the whack then it confirms the bad fuel pump.

      One other thing . I have a 99 sebring . Did kinda the same thing . Found the gauge is no longer read correct . So when it reads about an 1/8-1/4 tank of gas it runs out . I know it may sound dumb but make sure you have gas in the tank .

    How do you know if the fuse is bad
    Not getting gas from the fuel tank
    • Chevy doctor

      2 ways. Pull the fuse and look at it. If the element is in tact its still good. Or you can check with a test light, should have power on both sides. Some people have removed them and ohm tested them.

      Find a way to get to local auto parts stores and they will test it for free of charge.

    Unbelievable Tire Wear - SAFETY CONCERN
    I am VERY concerned about an issue I am having with my 2010 Chrysler 300 Limited. It has 107,000 km on it, yet I am on my THIRD set of tires. The wear on the rear tires is so extreme and noone can tell me why. The last set did not even last 18,000 km. Brand ...

      Any good suspension mechanic should be able to pinpoint the problem by looking at the wear pattern on your old tires. Any uneven wear would indicate the problem area. Here are some basic things that would cause premature wear. Improper tire size, load rating, speed rating, heat rating or inflation pressure. Lack of tire rotation. Worn or damaged suspension parts. Improper wheel alignment. Or aggressive driving like wheel spin or hard cornering. It could also be caused by loading to much weight in the vehicle or heavy towing. To narrow down the problem you must have the vehicle checked out by a good suspension shop. Have the mechanic check the wear pattern on your old tires and explain why they are wearing. If they are wearing out that fast the problem should be obvious. If your mechanic cant explain why by now. Take it to another garage for an inspection. The wear you describe sounds like it would be cause by improper rear tire alignment. Too much camber or toe. I would have to see it to be sure, but you likely need a four wheel alignment. That is where I would start. Make sure to get a printout of your alignment. The alignment readings will narrow down the problem. You should have a wheel alignment performed with every set of tires to prevent wear. Tell the mechanic in advance. That you want a copy of the alignment printout for your records. If you get an alignment. Reply with some of the angles for further help.

    I was told that all belts on my PT Cruiser need repaired
    I am suppose to have jus gotten a motor after a radiator was changed. I was told that all belts on my car need to be changrd

      Need more information - when was the last time / how many miles since the belt was last changed? What is the condition of the current belt? Have you inspected the belt(s) for yourself? Does the belt have severe cracks or portions missing? If yes, then this single condition (only) would indicate the belt wear and need for the replacement. Use the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the steps to inspect and replace the drive belts.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources,,,,, - to list only a few possibilities. The various belts are listed in price from around $2.90 each for your vehicle.

      Usually a rubber elbow that sits below the air condition lines right where they enter through your firewall to the HVAC case. Take a coat hanger or 2 piece foot of Wire and go in through the drain until water comes out.

      Typically, with any used vehicle purchase - the area to start (given you can confirm the maintenance history as accurate) would be a complete fluid and filter transfusion; engine oil and filter, transmission fluid and filter, fuel filter, new air intake filter, brake fluid flushed and exchanged - these items as a minimum - in order to establish the service baseline for future maintenance / service thresholds.

    Why does my oil and my airbag light (the airbag light only once) will lightly flicker on and off when stopping?
    Occasionally when breaking at lights or stop signs the oil light flickers, despite the oil level being where it should be. The airbag light has also done this, though only once or twice. The guages have also tacked out, fell completely, then resumed proper placement ...

    How much to replace water pump etc?
    137,000 miles. Just want to stay ahead on maintenance. Replace water pump, timing chain and all else in that area that is worn out.
    • HouseCallAuto

      Nobody replaces the water pump and timing chain ahead of time. If you do you will go well over $1000
    • Jimm
      3/30/2014 Jimm
      Typically, the timing chain itself requires no periodic replacement; lasts the life of the engine.

      The water pump should only be replaced if: noisy, worn - such as center shaft bearing - or leaking.

      Otherwise - just drive and save the repair cost until necessary.
