Answer . \nYour system may just need to be reset. That recently happened to me and the Subaru service dept was able to fix it quickly and easily. I think it happens when your vehicle suffers a power failure. My battery had died, and upon replacement, the lights flashed. Also my power locks ceased… to function. That also needed a quick reset and everything was soon back to normal. \n. \nGood luck.\nDesk ( Full Answer )
What is wrong with a car when the 'Overdrive Off' light continues to blink and you can't turn it off?
I have a 1994 Ford Taurus SHO and ever couple of weeks this OVERDRIVE OFF lite flashes for a couple of days then goes off. I suspect it has something to do with the transmission and its electronic sensors. Take your car to a transmission shop and hook up an analyzer to the ECM for the transmission. …It also can be related to the Vehicle Speed Sensor. This sensor feeds to the ECM and if defective will disable the electronic Overdrive. you. ( Full Answer )
funny you should ask... this just happend to me, two days ago [!] on my 1995 Chevy lumina. i read the owner's manual, and found that the turn signals will not work, as long as the hazard lights are engaged. well, needless to say, not only had i *not* engaged the hazard lights, but as it turns out, i… *couldn't* engage them! there is a plastic sheath/button that fits over the actuating rod. it's the rod which really engages the hazard flasher switch, down, inside the steering column. this sheath/button is the piece that sticks out the top of the steering column, with the little, concentric, double-triangles on it. you're supposed to push it down to engage the hazard lights, and then push it again to disengage them. when i tried to turn the hazards on, they wouldn't stay on; if i let the "button" go, they went back out; if i held it down, they would flash. i lifted up on the sheath/button, and it came right out of the steering column. i put the sheath/button back in, pushed it down, and again the hazard lights would flash as long as i was holding it down, but it wouldn't *stay* down. upon closer examination, i saw that part of the bottom of this sheath/button was broken off. my mechanic found that the broken piece was still down in the column, wedging the hazard actuator rod in and "almost-on" position, thereby disabling the turn signals. he pressed the actuating rod quickly, a few times, and finally the offending, broken bit popped out. he told me that as long as i don't use the hazard lights, I'll be all set. because that acutator doesn't seat itself vertically, without the broken sheath, if i need the hazard lights and push the actuator rod [even without the sheath/button on it] i could knock the rod out of kilter, and my turn signals will be out of commission, again. guess what? i can live without my hazard lights. good luck, r j p.s. or it could just be a fuse. ;) ^^^^ THANK YOU! THANK YOU! YOU FIXED MY PROBLEM AS WELL! My turn signals all of the sudden went on me today. the hazards still worked but the turn signal did not. I was worried because my dad had a probelm with his car in which his tailights would not come on when he switched his lights on, and it cost him a couple hundred to fix! His light switch was busted in the steering column. However i read this page pulled out the hazard light switch above the steering wheel and sure enough, THERE WAS A LITTLE BROKEN PIECE OF THE HAZARD LIGHT SWITCH STUCK INSIDE! I used needle-nose pliers to remove it and turn signals work FINE! Thanks Again R.J. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nWhen it is blinking, it means that damage is being done to the converter. You smell fuel because it is running so rich. There is possibly a sensor the has gone bad and is telling the computer to add more fuel. There is so much going into the motor than it can burn it and some of the… overflow is getting into the converter unburned. I am sure it is also getting into your oil. This can not only thin the oil but damage the lower end of the engine as the fuel acts a solvent, stopping the oil from being a lubricant. Get it checked out at an independent garage and get the oil changed at the same time-asap. ( Full Answer )
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nThis is probably caused by leaving your Hazard Lights on, but may also be an electrical short. Have it checked by an automotive electrical technician if you have tried to turn off the Hazard Lights switch and they still stay on

Why is check engine light blinking and it smells like gas when the car Car hesitates check engine light stays steady or blinks?
I assume you have a 96 and up vehicle. If the light is blinking and then eventually it will stay on, it's always been a misfire code for me. Take your car to an autozone or advance auto parts and they will read the code for you. It will usually be plugs, wires, or a coil, depending on your car. Hope… this helps. ( Full Answer )

If you mean the headlight switch, pulling it out once turns on the dash lights and turns off the daytime running lights, pulling it again turns on the headlights.
It means there is something wrong. I have not been able to get a reason yet but will post when I find out. If you restart your car it will go back to normal.
check for a bad or misadjusted stop light switch at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area
This is just to deter theft. Whether or not your car came with an optional anti-theft system, the light will still be there, simulating a anti-theft system. It's just a light-emitting diode, so it doesn't have enough draw to drain the battery.

If your 1997 Mercury Tracer has a battery light that blinks on andoff while the car is running, it most likely means that the batteryis not charging. This could be an issue with your alternator.
There are many reasons why a head light would stay on when car isoff. These lights could be automatic.
You need to reset the console: Start the car. Turn blowers on FULL, and open all A/C ports (Rear, front...). If you can tell, it is better to have the A/C compressor off. (Often you can't tell, or you wouldn't be concerned with the flashing lights, right?) Turn front air to PANEL. Press simu…ltaneously the Rear Wiper (not the intermittent) button and the wash button. Hold for 5 seconds until all lights are constant. Release buttons and allow the tests to run (two minutes or so.) When the Rear Wiper and the Intermittent Rear Wiper indicators are flashing alternately, it is going through the Calibration Test. When the A/C (snowflake) and the Recirculation indicators are flashing alternately, it is going through the Cool Down Test. (In my case, both sets flashed alternately during the entire test.) Tests are successful when only the Rear Wiper indicator is flashing slowly. Push it to exit the program, and you're done. Often, after doing these tests for the first time, the Cool Down Test fails, and the A/C and the Recirculation indicators flash simultaneously (though, just these two instead of the four.) Simply run the Cool Down Test independently by pressing simultaneously the A/C and the Wash Buttons. Hold for 5 seconds, and allow the test to run. This may take more than a few runs to finally set. Mine worked when I ran the test as soon as I started the car the next time (after the car had cooled off completely overnight). When all lights go out except for the Rear Wiper, push the Rear Wiper to exit. Success! Some have suggested turning the compessor off and running the car for 15 minutes previous to the Cool Down Test. This did not work for me. But it is true that if the compressor is cold (with condensation), the Cool down test will usually fail. Try, try again. If your A/C compressor is in good condition, it will eventually set. If nothing seems to work, your A/C might be have a problem. ( Full Answer )
\nSome cars had a delayed headlight turn-off system, to keep the lights on for a minute or two after the car was turned off. This was to provide you a courtesy light as you walked up to your front door.
Could be a bad or misaligned stop light switch at the upper end of the brake pedal under dash area
The light control module could be the cause of hazard lights comingon after the car is turned off. There could be a problem that hascaused this module to become wet and it is now not workingcorrectly.

if you mean: "why do hazard lights flash when brakes are on", then the answer is because vehicles are equipped with a hazard light relay that supercedes the brake lights. This way, slow moving vehicles can operate under hazard lighting.
In my experience, when brake lights remained on even after stopping and shutting off the car.....many times it was the brake stoplight switch, usually located on the brake pedal arm up above the pedal.
try getting some key board duster and bloe it in the seat belt clips were the belt goes in
Ah yes, the infamous brake light switch is your problem. Underneath the driver dash, look right above the brake pedal, there is a little roundish kinda piece there that is the brake light activator. It should be fully compressed while the brake is at normal spot. If there is a small nub comming o…ut the end of it touching the brake arm, that's your problem. Loosen the nut on the end and move the switch up more so its compressed against the arm, if that doesnt work, the switch needs replaced with a new one. Very cheap, and easy to fix for anyone! Basically how it works, is when the little button is pushed in by the brake arm at normal spot, it disconnects the power going to the brake lights. But when the button is out, is allows the current to go thru, thus leaving your brake lights on! ( Full Answer )
This is due too the hvac control head needs to have the mode doors recalibrated. If the recalibration fails repairs will need to be made until the system will past I don't know of anyway to by pass the recalibration at this time.. You will need to see a dodge dealership for this to be done.
The rule of the road is to flash your high beams to remind them to turn their high beams off.
The switch is wearing out on the inside, just order a new one and replace it.
It is normal for the emergency flashers to work with key on or off. You need to shut the e-flashers off with the e-flasher switch.
If the check engine light is blinking that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected
The flasher unit for the indicators. Pressing and releasing the foot brake for the brake lights. Turning the light switch on and of for the others. If it is not any of these then there is an electrical fault, possibly a loose connection.
well there is a lot of reasons for that matter the turning signal may be left on, you may have left on your caution lights, or if the car has an alarm system it may use the lights to indicate that you have locked or unlocked your vehicle or if you did not lock your vehicle the vehicle may be program…ed to lock its self after a given amount if time.

You might have a bulb that is burnt out which will cause your signal light or even tail light to stay on
No, stop driving this vehicle immediately. Check the oil level and add if it is low. If it is not low seek professional help to determine why the oil light is flashing. Your oil pump may be failing.
A car that has a alarm will usually have a red light on the instrument panel that when you lock the car with the key fob will come on and stay on for a few seconds. After the alarm is set the light will begin to flash. To test the alarm roll down the drivers window and close all the doors and trunk …and on some cars even the hood has to be closed. Lock the doors with your key fob and when the red light starts to blink unlock the door manually by reaching inside to unlock it and open the door from the outside. The alarm should sound. To turn off the alarm use the key fob to unlock the doors. ( Full Answer )
yes it can. if the check engine light shuts off by itself then chances are either the trouble code is a soft code. A hard code will keep the check engine light on until the problem is fixed and the check engine light is reset.
If the O/D OFF light is flashing while you are driving you should take the vehicle in for servicing as soon as you can because you can cause damage to the transmission
Always work to the wiring schematic and electrics chapters in the repair manual. Ask the question, "What did I do last?" It might have bearing on the fault. If you have a tow bar fitted check that the connector wiring is correct and that it isn't shored out. Check the light clusters for bad… wiring, especially if there is a tow bar, or reversing sensors are fitted. Older vehicles had a fixed 12v feed to the lamp and 'switched the ground'. Meaning that the lamp was live and closing switch connected the lamp negative wire to ground. This led to heavy conductors and currents running throughout the vehicle. Modern vehicles use lightweight wiring to switch relays. If there is a relay it might have failed. find and remove the relay. If the light goes out substitute the relay with a known good one. Check the reverse light switch. It bolts into the gearbox. Check the manual for location. Pull the plug off it, if the light goes out the switch needs replacing. After that you will have to 'chase' the wiring; checking each wire back to source. ( Full Answer )
