Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2005 Kia Spectra Speedometer/Odometer/cruise control stops working at
about 7 miles of drive time.  The illuminated light around the heater control
constantly flashes on and off. The aftermarket alarm system  stops working
intermittentaly. The passenger door, driver side, stopped opening and then
was fine about 2 months later.

First of all get rid of that aftermarket security system, they cause nothing but problems when they act up. Then pull the codes, you may have a speed sensor that in early stage failure. Then have the A/C and heating system serviced and cleaned, the flashing light is usually a sign of low the system leaking. Have all the latch assemblies lubed, that is no longer done when you have your car serviced. I have seen these get so bad that one person would have to hold the outside handle open and another get inside and force the door open, after a good lube it went back to normal operation.
