When i put my key in my ignition switch there is no sound at all do I need a new ignition switch to bypass the security or what do I need to get to get my car to start
About 2 weeks ago I had left it originator several minutes, it died, didn't want to restart but finally.did but then drove very rough for about10 minutes before driving pretty normal after that..Then.about 3 days later I was driving down street and it started riding and driving very rough before acting normal again. Finally yesterday I was driving up a small heel and again it started driving and handling.very rough.again. I was about 1 mile from.home so shortly after it began to act normal I was home, shut car off until next morning went to start it to leave but no, would not start. What can this be? Thank you!

For the past 3 days my car has been wanting to die while I'm driving down street. I have to keep pressing and messing with gas pedal to keep it from dieing while being drove. It starts sputtering and like slightly, buck-jumping when it's acting like this but up until last night, it would do all that randomly and then seem to drive ok after a few minutes.last time in 3 days that it did this was last evening, I was bout 1 mile

from home coming up small incline and it started cutting out, Didn't wanna go, I had to like 'feather' the gas pedal some to make it up the hill but then it started driving normal and I made it home and parked. This morning I went to leave but the car just kept turning over ( battery is pretty new & strong)but/ and car would not start for anything. Just glad I did get it to my house and it didn't stall out on me that last mile I had to go! Thank ya Jesus

This is not a constant problem, it happens off and on. When I start the car or while driving, all illumination disappears, then later comes back on.

This 2005 Chevy Impala has 203,000 miles on it.

I had ignition cylinder replaced in April and that's when I started having illumination problems in a few places on the dash, but yesterday ALL illumination disappeared at once.

Thanks for any guidance you can offer.
What seems to make the problem better or worse? I don't notice a pattern.
How long have you had this problem? Loss of all illumination started Aug. 16 but a few spots have been dark on dashboard since April 2017.
So im having an issue my windows work fine when the key is on acc on or running but when i turn it off the windows will not work.. the radio staus on for the 10 min or until i open the door just no power to the windows..

After having the line replaced it stopped leaking, now its leaking again but apparently a different spot.
The engine won't crank
How can I fix my gas needle it stuck and will not move stay s at the bottom of the gauge
Car was driving normally with no signs of trouble then all of a sudden it started running hot so i got it parked and had my mechanic to come look at it he thought it was the intake gaskets until he checked the trans and its a strawberry milkshake color and he says theres water in the ATF so he wants to replace the radiator and flush trans. I want to know if this sounds like the right thing to do? The car had no signs of trouble when it happened so I don't know what to do next.
