First of the problems is the brake lights. I have seen brake light problem faq's and etc but I beleive those are just for the message that appears on your screen telling you they are failing when they are really not. Mine are. It's as if they stay on, so when I hit the brakes for the lights to come on they can't get any brighter. My spoiler light and 3rd brake light in the bottom of the window stay on whenever the lights are on. When I press the brake there may be a SLIGHT difference in lighting if any. I must stress SLIGHT!
The other problem I am having is a sound my car is making when I put it in Drive or Reverse. At first I thought it was a belt but I sprayed the belts with some dressing and had it looked at by a few people and they think it may be the water pump or the pulley itself? I'm not sure how to describe it..
It's almost like a high pitch squeek, but when I put it in park or neutral it quiets down a lot. When I'm driving the car it seems to go away but then I start to hear random chirping. Any ideas?
