The problem tends to act up in spurts. It starts with no difficulty for awhile then for no reason it acts up. The engine does not crank at all. Playing with the gear shift, keys, etc. sometimes will get it going. There have been times when nothing has worked. The dealer refuses to fix it citing it could be almost anything causing the issue. What is the most likely problem?
if the override doesn't work where's the brake light switch and the shifter interlock solenoid?
My car stops running while driving - i get no check engine light - no code no bells. If i try to restart it fires but doesn't catch. I can get it going if I switch the ecm BATT fuse (#16) with the ecm IGN fuse (#13) neither show as being blown. This fix lasts for a trip or 2 and then it dies again ( it just stalls while driving )- switch the fuses it goes. First time it happened I was at a stop sign; second time I drive 30km to work and was 2/3 way back home when it died so car is warm.
sometimes my oil light comes up when I start my car(Chevy Malibu 2008 classic) and it will remain on but when I turn engine off and start it again it will go away.what is the problem?
my car won't start rite up when I notice the engine light is showing maybe two or three times a week.... the engine light comes and goes off... so when the light is on is when the car has a hard time turning over...I also notice when I used my key the has a hard time starting up....but if I use my automat starter the car starts rite up with no problem , I then unlock the doors in put the key in the igintion
i replaced the hazard flasher but it did not fix the constant clicking noise please give more detailed info or a picture
I drove it home turned it off for 20 minutes and went back out to move it and it wouldn't start you can crank on it all day or until the battery dies but it won't start up and run I've never seen anything like this myself
I cranked it up and I heard a pop. Then my gear shift selector wouldn't work. Then the car wouldn't turn over. Whaourt is that? It happened for the first time. Why is it locked up?
