In December went to start car and had to get jumped. Car ran fine for about a month and it did it again. And the intervals between jumps got closer, then we thought it was the battery so we got a new battery and had the alternator tested and it came back oay.. radio quit working as did the cigarette lighter the same day and then about a week later the theft light came on and stayed on for about 10 minutes and then went off. Then last week the dash lights quit working and replaced fuse, but still no lights and air bag light came on and stayed on. We put in new radio 2 weeks ago. We put it in shop last week to have checked and they tell me that it's the radio that has been causing problems. Well how could radio you just installed cause probs back in December" they have my grandmother believing them. Cost her $269. They reprogramed the computer and put in 4 fuses, but did not fix the so called radio problem, and told her that lucky the radio didnt make the car explode and catch fire?? said that the hot and ground were crossed but we had them tested and they werent. They also said that the radio was pulling 3 times the power that it should. I think that they didnt want to honor the warranty, and were finding somethng to blame it on. Because if it were the radio, why didnt they fix that instead of reprogramming the computer and replacing fuses?"

If I use the turn signals my rear, right(passenger) brake light will quit working. If I use it again it sometimes turns back on. I have been told that sometimes they dont work when I turn on my car, and have not used my turn signals. On occasions when I switch on my highbeams my headlights go off all together.
