car   Interior Lighting problem of Chevrolet Cruze

The vehicle is a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze. Purchased 4/25/2012. After driving a little, noticed lack of power, easily stalls, something rolling around in the trunk lid, console piece gaped out, passenger side tail lamp inside trunk bent, engine shutters (after 500 miles it started) when turned on and off. The lack of power and engine stalling are the major safety concerns. When in a stopped position, the car will stall when the clutch is operated correctly. While making a right hand turn from a stop sign, onto route 30, at a blind intersection, the car would not move, once I let the clutch out and was in 1st gear, the car just did not move, I had the gas pushed to the floor and I was only moving inches forward. I was scared, I had my child in the car with me, a tractor trailer could have come up on me 50+ mph hit me or swerved to miss me and hit someone else. The car finally moved after about 45 sec. I then got up to speed in 6th gear. The car then again lost power, I had to down shift from 6th gear to 4th gear to get speed built back up. I got home, about 2 miles, was upset and scared, called apple Chevrolet, the car sat until I drove it to the dealership 35 mins from my home the next morning. I told them that it does not happen every day so the chances of it happening again are slim. This would be the 3rd visit to the service dept for the lack of power complaint. I drove with the tech anyway knowing that it was not going to be duplicated. I told the service rep that I wanted a turbo boost gauge put on it because it does not seem to be boosting all the time. When I was called that my car was done and nothing was duplicated, I was told that it was boosting in range. When I picked my car up the next day, there was nothing on my bill that stated that the turbo was even checked. I was told that they cannot put every piece of equipment that they use on each car on every bill. Etc. . . It was Saturday, Apr. 28, 2012 when this interior lighting issue happened.

car   Interior Lighting problem of Chrysler 300C

The vehicle was a 2005 Chrysler 300c. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 2C3JA63H95_. A/c has never ran cold since we purchased this vehicle, we went to the dealer numerous times over the years to see if it was a recall on this vehicle, but each time the dealer claimed no recall on the 2005 Chrysler 300c a/c system, we even checked the web for recalls but we found nothing. I found the problem myself in July 2005, it seems that this vehicle came with bad schrader valves high and low, over the years I just added freon, but now the leak is so bad it won't hold a charge more than 5 days, went back to the dealer who claimed the a/c system was not under warranty and we would have to pay for a full evac of the system, replacement of the bad schrader valves plus labor and taxes. We choose not to have the work done because of the expense involved. Over the years we have had to replace both lower tie rod ends, the tie rod ends that came with the vehicle look really cheap as well as the after market parts. We had the stability control system worked on twice, each time just before the stability light come on we notice the dash lights flicker constantly, the dash lights has always flickered on this vehicle. The dealer was notified of this problem, but claims replacing the stability part in the steering column would resolve this issue, as of today June 20, 2012 the dash lights are flickering again which means another trip to the dealer. This issue happened on 07/06/06.

car   Interior Lighting problem of Hyundai XG300

The vehicle having this issue was a 2001 Hyundai Xg300. I have ongoing problems with my car since after purchase in 2007. Hyundai case #3479162 check engine light was going on and staying on unless the battery would die. Failed emissions said to be caused by air sensors but codes kept getting whipped out. Car has been to dealer countless times! car lunges thrashing motion while at a stop or driving. The air bag light stays on at all times,the first time the lunging happened I thought I was out of gas, with the exception of the violent thrashing that occurred/s. My cars control panel,headlights and interior lights dim,shut off at will. All radio & control panel lights come on and go off at any time. The radio starts changing from fm to am to cd at any given time including while the car is turned off and unattended. The tail lights, brake lights and running lights also turn on/off by themselves whether driving the car or if the car is sitting in my driveway. I have to get my car jumped every time I go to start it . It wasn't until earlier this year that a neighbor came to let me know that I left my lights on in the middle of the night. I knew nobody had been in my car because I was recovering from a major surgery and my car keys are always with me. This incident with the neighbor shed light on part of the problem. Now I know why my battery is constantly dead. I just don't know why the car is turning on it's electrical components. The ongoing problem with the battery drain has caused the codes for the car to keep being erased so there is no way to diagnose cause for the check engine /air bag light coming on. It's frightful that the lights go on or off, day or night, without cause. This is very dangerous while night driving! the stalling out while driving causes complete loss of the steering/brakescontrols and all power. I am terrified of hwy driving now! I could cause an accident that may kill me or someone else!the thrashing and lunging of the car scares me. The electrical is going on at least 8x day/nite. This car is dangerous!. This issue happened on 02/17/2008.

car   Interior Lighting problem of Infiniti G35

I have a 2005 Infiniti G35x. I have owned it since approximately 50k miles. Friday night, on my way driving from DC to NY, the ac got stuck at 90 degrees, and in auto mode, the backlight for the instrument cluster went completely dead, and the stereo went out completely. I have no control over any of these 3 devices. Since I live on the east coast and all the dealerships in the area are closed, I called one in riverside, CA - riverside Infiniti. They said the stereo is dead and they've seen the problem "countless times" (quote). I made a posting on several Infiniti forums on the internet requesting advice. The consensus is the same - stereo is bad. I feel that the instrument cluster and my hvac should never be connected to the stereo as this is a major safety concern. Also, since this is a common problem, Infiniti should issue a recall/TSB. The failure date was Friday, October 29, 2010.

car   Interior Lighting problem of Kia Motor Soul

The vehicle is a 2010 Kia Motor Soul. Within a week of taking delivery on 7/24/09, the interior and most especially the door skins were already acquiring marks and scratches - a slight finger nail scratch required a special product to remove etc. There have been a few intermittent problems. 1. When releasing the clutch pedal there was a noise that sounded like a cable that has since become more consistent. On 8/3/09, I had an appointment with the dealer and was told it was the cable connected to the throw-out bearing which was said to be normal. However, this cable noise has not been normal with any of my other manual transmissions, nor is it present in all kia Souls. 2. I began to notice a knocking sensation coming through the shifter handle when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear along with a grinding sound when downshifting into 2nd gear. There is also a slight jolt when shifting into 2nd gear - it is not a smooth transition like the other gears. 3. When at a traffic light with the car in neutral, there are times when the car will not go into 1st gear, and wants to go into 3rd gear which usually takes a couple of tries before it will go into 1st gear. 4. There has been excessive engine revving 2x now. The first occurred after I came out of reverse - the second was when I tried to go into 1st gear but ended up in 3rd gear and brought the car back to neutral. 5. The last issue concerns excessive water and dirt accumulating in the engine. After washing my car, I popped the hood and noticed the hood latch is already stripped down to the metal after only being opened and closed 4-5 times. The engine design seems to attract pools of water in certain areas, which also occurs when it rains, and there is concern of premature rust. Scheduled an appointment for 9/15 to have the oil changed at 1000 miles and to get these issues addressed but had to schedule a 3rd appointment because the dealer now needs to keep the car for 5 hours so the outcome is pending. This interior lighting problem happened on Fri., Jul. 31, 2009.

car   Interior Lighting problem of Mercury Grand Marquis

The vehicle is a 2004 Mercury Grand Marquis. My mother-in-law has a 2004 Grand Marquis & last night when she started the car to go home after visiting us, the headlights would not come on at all. . . . Additionally, the interior lights have come on all by themselves intermittently, and consequently, the battery is drained each time it happens. The interior problem may or may not fix itself by starting/shutting off/opening/closing door. All I did was type "2004 Mercury Grand Marquis" in yahoo search & a multitude of similar problems came up in the results: all stating a defective light control module (lcm). I am going to take the one out of her car today & take it apart & inspect it for cracked ("cold solder") solder joints as almost anything with a pc board ( (made in the last 25 years especially) tends to develop cracked solder because they are made cheaply by using as little solder possible to hold the joint together (when new, anyways) . Yet another cheap, modern junk electronic item pumped out in bulk by the thousands that the manufacturer will not support, unless it fails within the warranty period! I cannot believe Ford motor company won't issue a recall for this problem as it is not an isolated problem, according to my research! maybe once someone dies in a car wreck from the lights going out while they're going down a freeway @ 70mph, someone will get a good lawyer and sue the pants off of Ford motor company!! class action lawsuit, anybody?. This interior lighting issue occurred July 28, 2012.

car   Interior Lighting problem of Nissan Versa

The car was a 2012 Nissan Versa. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 3N1CN7AP8C_. The side panels on both front doors of our four door sedan do not illuminate, so at night we cannot locate the unlock/lock tabs (or the power window tabs). Because of this of lack of illumination, whenever it is dark we are unable to locate the unlock tabs, thus inhibiting our ability to exit the vehicle. This is a safety hazard because in the case of emergency, we will not be able to exit from the vehicle quickly and safely. (please note that the side panels do light on our other 2012 Versa, which is a hatchback. ) I have written three letters and spoken to four Nissan customer relations representatives---and each says that Nissan will not retro-fit the door panels and that we have to find a solution to this concern on our own. Because all the doors lock automatically once the car is driven, I believe that the unlock/lock tabs need to be illuminated that driver and passenger can quickly see the unlock tabs so we can get out of the car. We are literally locked into our car and in actuality cannot see to get out of our car whenever it is dark. The failure date was 01/14/2012.

Well they sent me a letter telling me about an internal memo they had regarding this same issue. I was advised to take it to a Nissan dealer to see if in fact that was the case. I did and it was I spoke to someone in their consumer affairs department who explained that because my car was over the extended warranty amount that hey had increased it to I would have to pay a deductible out of pocket. . . . Here is my major problem the warranty was extended to 80,000 miles my car has 93,000 mile. They will replace the radiator if I pay a deductible od $1000. 00. . Why should I pay for a manufacture error. ? please someone help me I can not afford to drive this car or pay such high deductible. Nissan needs to pay for the entire repair. . . .

car   Interior Lighting problem of Toyota Prius

The car was a 2010 Toyota Prius. Our 2010 Prius is unsafe during the daytime driving when we are required by road sides to turn on our headlights in certain roads, when we comply the headlights go on, but the dash lights go dark and we are unable to read the speedometer etc. I went to a toyoda dealer and they said nothing could be done to fix the problem. Today, Aug 6, I personally spoke with toyoda motor sales in torrance CA. , on my complaint 1107281155, and was told toyoda could do nothing on 2010 Prius which all have the same problem. I offered to pay to fix it as I am on roads requiring daylight head lights on several times a month. I feel that toyoda should recall all Prius and fix that problem, there is no excuse for a dangerous sistuation like that especiallly when I can receive a ticket for not using the headlights during the day or if I do not being able to read the speedometer etc. I feel that throughout the west many roads require onlight headlights. I would like a formal investigation about this matter. It was Sat., Aug. 6, 2011 when this interior lighting issue occurred.

car   Interior Lighting problem of Volvo XC90

The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Volvo Xc90. After driving 125 miles without incident, we left our 2004 Volvo xc 90 t6 awd parked for 4 hours before driving again. After less than a half mile at low speed, there was a "thump" from the front of the car, the wipers cycled, the gauges all went blank, some of the windows stopped working, the a/c went out (blower stayed on). The car stayed on, but seemed "stuck" in second gear and the brakes became "spongy," but operable. Turn signals were inoperable and the power steering went out. The indicator light on the gear shift went out and the central locking system stopped functioning. We got out of traffic and into the shade. I checked all fuses and tried to restart the car. It would restart, but within seconds there were multiple "clicks" coming from the area near the fuse box in the passenger compartment followed by the electrical failures described above. After letting the car sit for a couple of hours we moved it to a secure location two miles away. During that drive all of the above problems happened again, including the engine being "stuck" in second gear. After letting the car sit overnight, it started and ran without incident. However, the "check engine" light and the "srs" light have remained on. A repair shop could not diagnose the problem. Prior to this incident, the same things happened to my wife in the same car. The symptoms lasted a few seconds and disappeared. It was 07/24/10 when this interior lighting issue occurred.
