We have had the problem where you have to wait the ten minutes with the car in accessory mode and then restart. Well, yesterday my husband had to replace the cam shaft sensor and a blown fuse. Mechanically the car cranked and was running fine. Then my husband turned the car off. When he went to crank it back up, it will stay cranked for like three seconds and cuts itself off. The theft system light stays on constantly and won't blink. We are at a loss at what to do next. We tried the 10 minute thing. Nothing. It will crank time and time again but cut off after 3 seconds. Please help someone!

AC CLOWER MOTOR MAKES A TICKING SOUND
CODE B0014

I guess a specific problem will be deleted by disconnecting for a certain duration, then connecting again.

I've heard about for reinitialising data for the bad use of "At a distance starting key system"

After a while good working... these failed : no more flashing neither left or right; hazards go on good working.
The right arm for cleaning window just operate on two highest speed, none action when pushing for liquid on glasses.
Should it be a good idea to disconnect battery for 10 minutes, what about this way of doing...for what problems ?

We got new brake calipers and tires changed 2-3 weeks ago. Tires have been re-balanced. It's not just steering wheel that shakes, but whole car. It was just a slight tremble, and now it's worse after balancing. Right around 45-50 it shakes, but 60 it calms down.

I turned it off and waited a couple of hours and went to get an oil change. The car has been fine since. Should I have it checked out more? Could there be an impending transmission problem that was temporarily fixed by resetting the low oil status?

i opened the trunk and remove the covering but what do i have to remove to get lens to pop out

After replacing the battery the gauges on the dashboard went out. And some lights its like half of the dash is working and the other side out

some one tore up the switch we changed it and now we can't start it.It turns over but no results in starting it.

After exiting the vehicle and closing the door without locking it, the theft deterrant light on the dash flashes every few seconds. By reading the owners manual, its my understanding that the light should flash every 3 seconds after locking the vehicle. Also, can this light cause a battery drain? When the vehicle is left unlocked, I don't believe the light should be flashing. It hasn't in the past.

It have a new battery.

No dipstick found to be able to check levels for transmission nd no resisvour for steering pump leak is bad came sudden

All other lights work fine

The car seems to be pulling or shifting on its own... It acts like as if it wants to turn off.

come on it dont start but radio and everything does come on .. once the gas gauge works and stuff it will start any ideas ?

What can be causing this problem?

how do i fix?

when the blower works it dont work all the time either what is the easiest way to check whats wrong with it

I just purchased this vehicle and thought i could find this stuff out before i found a book i would like to plug in my phone charger, also without knowing if the horn is hooked up yet, does it have a fuse? p.s. i am 54, don't know too much about mechanican but thought i could handle fuses! lol!

I have 75 characters Question field.

car shuts off while driving down the road radio still on and its hard to crank in the morning time have to giggle the key and make sure in floor gear shift is up all the way,just had new motor put in it.why does it shut off.

thought that water was in tank so added additive but still does not start

for about three miles on the highway. Is this a sign of low tranny fluid? I tried to check that but the designers of this car made that kinda hard to do.

Fuel gauge does not show full after filling up, but after its driven & restarted, its back to normal. Also, there is a weird sound coming from the suspension while driving, it can be heard over the road noise. Car only has 14,500 miles on it. Any solutions?

KEEP TURNING OFF FOR NO REASON

took a long time to diagnose. Wiring was not problem. diagnosis is a control module by repair shop. Seems like both tail lights would be a problem if this diagnosis was correct.

I had a diagnostic test done and the guy said that it was the theft deterrant system fuel cutoff what can I do???

A long time ago my car stalled but started right back up. I never had anymore problem with it doing that until now. My lights, radio and heat stayed on but my car clicks several times. Could this be the batter fluid or does it seems like something more serious?

added fule cleaner that didn't help, took it to a shop and they said it was the coil pack and module then they said the plugs needed to be replaced and now the catalytic converter is bad. seriously?? is this possible?
the car is in good shape and had 175,000 highway miles
I thought when the catalytic converter went bad it smelled like sulphur.

G M person told me it was the blue and white striped wire on right side,toward drivers door, of plug harness. Cutting it will disarm passlock but little light will stay on in dsah. Need help. Thanks Bill
