So what u think is the problem
This happens often (the "Security" light comes on) and within a short amount of time, the car will not start and is completely disabled. The malfunctioning system can be over ridden by turning the key to the "on" position until the blinking light goes out in approx. 10 minutes. This is a great frustration. Many people have this same problem. Many. Lets all report this like I did to the link below to start an investigation whether this should be a recall situation. This can be done online by contacting DOT government complaints. Thank you.
The turn signals sound like they are on as well. The check engine light also just came on. It didnt start at work like two weeks ago. I just waited till after work and it started. Fuses look good as well as all the fluids. Fuel pump kicks on, im just not getting started.
It will go to the floor and the car will only slow down some unless i pump them a few times then they will work fine they don't make any notices the brake fluid was a little low but i filled it up about 2 months ago a if it has a leak its a very small one
Just bought this car . Guy said it worked a month ago when he got it inspected . All the other lamps work ( head lights , brake lights , running lights ) . What could be the problem?
I had stopped at a parts store to get a new spark plug wire because I noticed on one when I pulled it off that it was broken. I just bought this car last month and god knows what all is wrong with it. anyway, we changed the broken spark plug wire and then I started the car and it started shaking violently and I thought oh my god now what. good thing I was only a few blocks from home. so I turned it off and started on the other repair work which was replacing the thermostat. (it was stuck open) We got that replaced and then tried to start the car, it misfired 3 times so we shut it off and put a code reader on it and it came up with P0300 Random misfire. So Im thinking change spark plugs,spark plug wires maybe egr valve? what do you suggest? when I took out the spark plugs the ones in front were more fouled than the back ones which I thought odd and the spark plug wire in the back on number 1 spark plug was shorting out so I went ahead and replaced all the spark plug wires. I also noticed the car being very hard to start which may be a bad fuel filter? This is a 2004 Pontiac grand Am SE1 6 cyl. I hope I dont have to replace the coil packs too. :(
Leave so I brought it home and I replaced the crank sensor. now it turns over once and stops as if the starter has no power going to it.
Having leak issue cheap I have new pan and o.e.m. gasket just want to make sure bolts go in
n right! The car hit a rock in road on transmission pan
I had to replace my ignition cylinder because it locked up and would not turn. I disconnected the negative cable from the battery, removed and replaced the ignition with a new one. When I went to connect the battery back up, the starter engages immediately even when there is no key in the ignition.
Ive read somewhere that it could be the solenoid, is this accurate and if so, is there some way to troubleshoot it before I spend another $80?
