I just filled it up with gas the gas hand goes up and down but it will not crank it just wants to turn over what can I do to solve this
I tried opening my sunroof but it wouldn't switch. I noticed under the control panel inside there was a cord not plugged in. How do I plug that in and where?
After turning the car off and all of the accessories, the parking lights are still on.
Check engine light began flashing, car was idling rough, can't get up to speed. Thought changing spark plugs and wires would help, it's still running the same, changed the ignition coil for cylinders 2 and 5, still runs the same. Car sometimes wants to die when stopping, also hard to get it started and once it starts there is an overwhelming smell off gas. Spark plugs and worked a have been triple checked everything was done properly.
One time out of forty and it will turn over for start.
ove. What can I do?
Some tell it could be my piston...
Just started doing this a few days ago when it finally cranks over to start it runs great its a new starter
What else could it be ?
I charge battery. Start car and shortly the battery light comes on and the battery power starts to fade. I replaced the alternator and continue to have the issue. What else should I look at?
I was on E and I filled the car up then didn't start up. I don't smell gas I don't hear the full pump kick on and i found out that the one fuze #15 was out put new one in i don't know what to really think it could be...
So my question is do we get refunded for the switch if there is a recall?

Turning the key to the on position the gauges would sometimes act if they lost power. When attempting to start the engine when the gauges were in this unpowered state, the starter would turn but the there would be no spark coming from the coil packs. I tested the lead and ground to the coil packs and the crankshaft position sensor. Since other components still have power (lights, radio, windows, etc.) the problem seems to be after the battery but before the coil pack which leads to the conclusion of it being something with the ignition switch or wires in between. No confirmed solution as of yet
