What seems to make the problem better or worse? All the time
How long have you had this problem? Few week
Recently bought and ran great when I purchased it but suddenly it doesn't accelerate properly when stopped. On highway at high speeds if I hit a bump u can feel a noticeable pickup in speed and power or vice versa I have no clue what to do
Started car in garage. Shut off. Tried to start 6hrs later. Car turns over, acts like its gonna start then falls flat on It's face. Shows "start fail" for maint code on dash.
Took it to a shop and they stated it was the computer under the hood, they said it got wet, which seem impossible they way it is sealed
My voltage meter reads 12 volts after recharging and I get nothing, no dash lights, head lights, nothing. Everything is dead. What should I try next?
repaced fuses, O2 sensor. Check engine light still on. what I should check next
top was down and I opened trunk and then it would not lock closed ,after sitting a few hours every thing worked fine ?Never did that before .no codes I could trip the lock with a screw driver but would not lock when closed
Che ked connections and have power to player in trunck.
have reset key fob. dash lights come on when I try to crank. battery has been charged that does not seem to want to hold a charge.
Also will not start or run until fuel is sprayed into the intake
The CODE keeps coming up after entering so I think either the code is wrong (doubtful) or I am doing some thing wrong. After entering the code number three times the wait (lockout) comes on and nothing happens. Any suggestions appreciated
My antenna got stolen. This is the black,rubber coated, non-retractable that screw in. Where and how much would this cost to replace it. Thanks
