My car is making clicking sounds when I am driving, when this happens my power windows stop working as does my windshield wipers.My powersteering also gets real stiif and is haed to turn and then will suddenly release. I have been told by a mechanic that my GEM
is going out and I need to replace it, has anyone else had this problem? Is this whats really wrong?[/b]
Clicking sounds usually mean relays. Try pulling each relay and cleaning the contacts with WD-40 or similar. It might help.
