I started it this morning and first the wipers stopped.

Customer Question
I started it this...

I started it this morning and first the wipers stopped. Turned it on then back on. Wipers went down but wouldnt do anything else. Went to drive it anyway and noticed all the warning lights on the dash stayed on and the tach needle was at zero and would inadvertently jump then go back to zero ( car sounded like it was running fine) and the car would not shift out of park. I'm assuming its something electric

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

I opened the fuse box but am not sure how to know if one is bad. I did notice a rather loud buzzing notice coming one side of the box

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Chrysler?

2006 pacifica

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Pacifica yourself? What have you tried so far?

The only thing I tried was to turn it off, let it sit and try it again. I had to get to work and it just happened this morning so haven't been able to try anything else

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Reagarding the not shifting, we have already replaced the plastic part inside the shifter so I do know that that is not why it won't go into gear

INTERMITENT PROBLEMS CAN BE TOUGH TO DIAGNOSE ARE YOU GOING TO DIAGNOSE THIS VEHICLE? NOT GETTING OUT OF PARK COULD BE AN INTERMIITENT BRAKE SWITCH...SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE HAVING MULTIPLE ISSUES HERE...A CALL WOULD BE BEST

ALL THE LIGHTS ON THE DASH COULD BE AN ALTERNATOR ISSUE HAVE SEEN THAT BUT IT COULD BE OTHER THINGS...IF YOU WANT TO CK IT YOURSELF I COULD WALK YOU THRU STEPS WHEN YOU GET HOME IF YOU LIKE GIVE ME A CALL. BUT INTERMITTENT PROBLEMS LIKE OCCASIONAL DASH LIGHTS ARE BEST DIAGNOSED WHEN THEY ACTUALLY ACT UP

What Customers are Saying:

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
