To begin, let me tell you a little about my car.
the yellow elise crashed in fence was mine before repairs
It is a 2005 Lotus Elise. I bought it with a rebuilt title 32K miles, it now has 47K haven't had any issues EXCEPT..
a few months back I was driving down the freeway and the panel under the engine got sucked down and dragged on the ground when it caught air, and my car immediately died.
After 2 weeks and a tow back to the house of trying to reset inertia switch disconnecting battery and all other methods people told me to try, disabling the immobilizer did the trick, and once running I found out the A/C compressor pulley went out and almost caught my car on fire
The shift light has never stopped flashing since I disabled the immobilizer
How all this happened at the same time, I have no clue
Lately I have had trouble out of my push to start button. Sometimes it works first try, most the time I have to push it 100x or hold it or hit it just right.
Reason I am telling you guys this, is because lately, my car has been acting weird.
I was driving down the freeway and all of a sudden I lost all power and the car died. I pulled over thank God I was in slow lane because it was horrible traffic already. I was able to start the car after a while.
Almost every time I get in car now the lights flicker and don't come on usually until I giggle battery cables, (was assuming it was a ground issue?! not electrically inclined and still working on mechanical knowledge).
Today I was at autozone, and I got back in my car, it did the usual nothing came on except dash light flicker, got out giggled the cables, then all of a sudden this alarm came on my car and the lights were flashing on dash. It would go off after a minute or so then come back on, and I was still able to start the car but the alarm was still on. There is a small alarm box behind the push to start button that I can hear clicking. I tried to pull the two wires connected to it (aside from the ones hard wired to it) and it didn't do anything. I drove the car home after a while of giggling wires and things I don't know what they do, and the alarm stayed on, and now the car is off and the box is still making a clicking sound.
I know this is just a mess but I have had the car 7 months now no problems, and put quite a few miles on it as I have daily driven the car and taken it on road trips.
