SOURCE: dragging right front brake

Then it it most likely something other than the caliper, like maybe the master cylinder or some brake line problem it your problem is only on one brake. I assumed that you changed the pads and rotor as well (and did both sides at the same time) Rick

SOURCE: occassionally dies mostly when power window button is pressed

change the drive belt on the car if the car has over 40,000 miles and while you have the belt off have the alternator tested as while as the battery you may just have a bad cell in the battery

SOURCE: my 2000 silverado 4x4 5.3 auto has lost power

When was the last time you changed plugs, wires, and cap/rotor? Also check the fuel filter.

SOURCE: Had aircon on and car

I can only make an assumption. I think you had a temporary freeze up of your air conditioner pump. Being that you have a serpentine belt that runs everything, your engine components were interrupted by a stop of one component in the rotation. That is my guess.

SOURCE: Hi, on my 1999 Taurus wagon, I lost all power to tailgate hatch- reverse lights, license plate light, top brake light. What, most likely happened?

If you haven't already check fuses. If fuses are good. My guess would be brake light switch. IT'S a little box at the top of the brake pedal behind the dash. Try replacing it.

Testimonial: "Thank's Cody, I lost three things in the hatch, reverse lights, top brake light only, and license plate light. The harness connection is probably corroded. Needs electric greese."

What would cause my 2015 Ford Taurus to loose power when driving?


That is called 'Limp Mode' and is done by the ECM to protect the engine. You need to get it to a garage and they will read any codes or the history to see which sensor caused it to happen.

CHECK BRAKE SYSTEM LIGHT


First thing is to clean your battery terminals and posts. Then Have the battery and alternator tested at a auto parts store. They will do it for free.

1997 oldsmobile 88 brakes taking more pressure to engage. was sitting at a light gently pressing on the pedal when they apparently lost pressure. brakes still work but have to press almost all the way to...


I don't think that is an 'emergency brake light' but a warning light referring to the problem you are having. If it was only a low fluid level warning, this wouldn't normally affect braking as it has so either the master cylinder has failed or the vacuum brake power booster.
Try (in a safe area) pumping you pedal and note if it rises somewhat. If it does, either master or slave cylinder has blown a seal or the seals are simply worn.
To check the brake booster, with the engine off, press on the brake pedal BEFORE starting and note whether it sinks a bit one the engine has started. If it does, the booster is likely OK.
If neither of these tests prove useful or conclusive and the car is (carefully) drivable, go to one of the chain auto parts stores and request a free scan of your on-board computer for possible stored errors relating to the braking system.

My '02 Ford Taurus SES windows won't roll down


Power windows are wired through their own relay which is usually located in the fuse box. If you don't have faulty switches in your window system I would have the relay checked out.

If you cannot operate any of the power windows and you lost power on all at the one time it is most unlikely that the motors are faulty.

Jaguar s type auto 2002 electronic handbrake


Had a similar problem with a 2004 jag. The handbrake can ''lose'' its calibration due to low battery or glitch in the computer ......... try disconnecting the battery for 15 mins - letting all elec systems drain down.
then reconnect battery. apply footbrake and then with foot still on brake operate handbrake switch on ............ this worked for me .... hope it does for you.
