Dash problems When I start the vehicle the gauges go all squirelly and sometimes i get no headlamps, while this is going on my push button 4wd indicators do nothing yet if I keep working the light switch I will get the dash to work but as soon as I go to park lamp or off I lose the dash, lamps and 4 wd. Sometimes it starts right up and there are times where I have to let it sit for a day and then it will fire right up. 99' S10 p/u

TRY wiggling the ignition key when it is acting up. you may have an ignition switch not passing current all the way thru system.also check your battery cables and make sure they are clean these are bad about corrosion acid will leak down inside cable and corrode entire cable. this si not a "common" problem so i dont have any ready solution for you. check this out and we will go from there

Your dash lites are on with headlamps off? I'd check the wiring for headlamp switch/dimmer. Not only check the fuses, check the fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite. You could use a jumper to bypass dimmer, see if dash lites work.

My 2006 H3 will not come out of 4 wheel drive?


Hummers are 4WD all the time, you can never take it out of 4WD. Now, you can select between locked 4WD HIGH and locked 4WD LOW. Those are switched by putting the vehicle in Neutral, and pushing the button the dash, waiting till the correct indicator light illuminates and then putting the truck in drive. Based on the above info, what exactly kind of 4WD drive problem are you having?

Check the oil level in the shift on the fly (sotf) part of the axle thats the left of the front one - it holds about 1 pint of gear oil and gets missed at service time .

My van won't start sometimes


I am not convinced that the problem is the security system. When you push the little button under the dash, do you have to hold the button down while you crank or is it a case of push and release. This tells me how the security system is activated. Get back with me on these questions

If it was mine I would disable the security system for a period of time and see if there are any instances
where the vehicle does not start.
