Hello, I have had my Escalade for about 9 1/2 years and it never gave me problems. My husband is horrible with his cars and has went through at least 5 since we've been married. He won't let me take it to get oil changes, breaks changed he always does it himself. He doesn't know much about cars and pretty much guesses. Just from reading a 2012 post and the response from your tech caradiodoc it gives me a better understanding of what might be going on. I don't know if its all tied together but it seems like it all started happening one right after the other. The air conditioner works only in the front and not the back. The side view mirrors only go down or out and when I reverse get stuck facing all the way down. The heater in the passenger seat no longer heats up. And the worst part of all, the breaks will suddenly get really hard and I have to pull over, turn my wheels all the way to the right and loosen the little screw in the back of my front left tire (drivers side) so that it can release this oil looking stuff. Once it is released and I tighten the screw again I can continue to drive. However, if I have to keep breaking it will get hard again, and I have to do the same thing over and over again. If I am driving long distances without breaking very much, it runs fine. All the lights are on the air bag light and some others, and NOW my gas gauge (I think that is what it's called) is going up and down. It will say I am on Empty when I just put gas. After I am driving a bit it will go back to normal and show that I have gas. Oh and it sounds like I need steering fluid, it's real squeeky when I turn the wheel. But it does have power steering fluid in it. The ABS light stayed on too, and once I turned off my car and something sounded like it was still running. My husband unplugged something under the vehicle and that was that. It scares me because I don't know what he unplugged and if he ever plugged it back. He changed the caliper and the oil and the oil filter, it seems to run smoother but now the wheels feel like they shake when I'm driving and when I am stopped at a light, the hood looks like it trembles or shakes. PLEASE help me figure out what is wrong I have to get a smog in order to renew my license tags and I just know it's not going to pass the inspection. I am so scared I am going to cause an accident and hurt someone one of these days or kill myself!
have the same problem?
