Car Repair #3557

I have a car that I have been trying to figure out what is wrong with it, there seems to be lights coming on the dashboard signaling a bigger problem, does anyone have any idea of how I could go about getting an idea of what is really wrong?

One of the first things that you should do is reset the computer and see if the problem is not something that is in the computer. You can do this by removing the battery cables and simply waiting a few minutes before you hook these back up. If the lights do not come back on, then you may simply have been due for a check up and the repairman would have done the same thing. If the lights come back on, then you should look through your owner's manual and find out just what the light means. From there, you can take the car somewhere, or if you are wanting to do it yourself, consider going to your local auto supplies store. Those that work there are usually pretty knowledgeable about how to do things, and worst case scenario look online for how to fix the problem since there are so many sites dedicated to car repair.

    My 2008 Honda civic has started to bring my battery down over night. I purchase a new one it only stayed charge for 2 days. I had just change the starter.
    I don’t know what to do. What’s next? What could be wrong, how to get it started again?

    Sounds like you may have a very small trickle discharge through the solenoid in the starter, because you state you just had it changed out. Have an ammeter inserted between the positive battery post and the starter cable. Disconnect the large red lead in the battery cable to the starter, there should be a connection to break apart in that cable coming from the positive side of the battery. If that shows no current flowing through the meter then the problem is in the starter. if the problem persists then reconnect the starter lead and pull each fuse in the fuse block out ONE at a time. When the ammeter shows current flow has stopped flowing from the battery, then you have isolated the circuit which is faulty. It could be something as simple as a rear window defroster relay or some other controlled circuit.

    just found out it might be the settarr.Ive never heard of a settarr causing a car to stall though .Maybe it shorted out something .When i jumped it to the settarr nothing happened.All i heard was the settarr sounded stuck.Worse it could be is the flywheel right? One month before breakdown i hit a very large puddle .it has to do? something with that.
