My car won’t start. It just makes a fast clicking sound
My car won’t start. It gives one click then nothing.
Fast clicking is a sign of a poor battery connection or faulty battery. Check your terminals and have your battery checked.
When I switch my lights from low to high beam they drop out.
This could be your starter motor failing or voltage drop in the starting circuit.
I drove my car last night and this morning it won’t start.
This would point to the contacts in your combination switch.
I put my electric windows down and now it won’t go up. I can hear a motor in the door working.
Possible battery drain fault e.g. lights left on/ doors not closed/or even boot light staying on. If all this is ok then there probably a charging fault or could be your battery has died.
My blinkers blink very quickly
In the door well of your car there is a mechanism called a regulator, this in combination with a motor makes the window operate. If you can hear the window motor trying to work then it is possible the regulator has failed.
My car’s air conditioning is not as cold as it used to be.
This usually means there is a current load issue in the blinker circuit, Check your globes they could be blown or broken.
I have a battery light staying on on the dash even after I have replaced the battery.
The system could be low on gas which means your system needs to be checked thoroughly for a leak.
I have a new car which is still under warranty will I void my warranty by getting it serviced at Highway Auto Rockhampton?
This is pointing to an alternator/charging issue and needs to be checked ASAP or your car will fail to start.
