It runs fine with no battery problems if you let it set the battery goes down
The car just jerked and the check engine light the abs light came on now it won't shift
they have not come back on. Ihave blinker lights all controls on level lights are working on dash. nothing to light up on mph, rpm, or fuel
I have a couple of friends who knows about cars so we could probably do it ourselves but what is the part itself cost
Cleared codes said OK but lights still on and seems like its going shut down. Anti theft, abs, brake, check engine all lights flash on? Almost seems like when shifting that's when abs and brake lights come on

My son's 98 sunfire 2.2L has a passlock system (no chip in the key)
We have started having problems with it when he got it in June 2013.
Some days it would work fine, others the theft light will blink 6 times then go steady and just stay that way.
Sometimes disconnecting the negative terminal from the battery for 30 min or so then performing the 10 min relearn will allow the car to start.

We've replaced the ignition cylinder at least 6 times (both aftermarket, new factory and junkyard), replaced the instrument cluster with a junk yard part. All of these replacements have worked for a brief period of time then right back to ole 6 blinks and no start...

The only "semi-consistent" in this is that it seems to happen more when it is cold or wet out. But it sometimes works then. Also, any time my son has no option but for his car to work, that is almost ALWAYS a given that it won't work.

ANY advice would be GREATLY appreciated!
98 Pontiac Sunfire, the rear passenger turn signal and hazard light does not work. I checked the bulb (all lights run off a single bulb), the bulb is not blown. Owners manual doesn't show a fuse for turn signals. Any idea how I can fix it???
