problem #1

Aug 152002


  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,000 miles
Seatbelt-2nd row passenger side belt keeps pulling tighter and tighter and locking. Children would refuse to wear it because of the discomfort. Replaced and seems fine now. Computer control- still ongoing, battery light keeps coming on and off, alternater has been replaced, still happening. Service traction control, traction control off indicator light, ABS indicator light, air bag indicator light, all come on at the same time. Van hesitates and the headlights go dim then bright. Dealer hasn't been able to pinpoint trouble but after they work on it, it goes away for about 3 weeks and starts again.
