Question about 2003 Ford E250

1 Answer

Car will start but will not stay on

I can turn the car on but it does not stay on. If I sit for about 15 minutes and idle the van then I can put it on D-drive and go. However, if I stop it cuts off and the whole process starts again.

How do I get the auto theft light on my 2002ford windstar to go off?


Make sure battery is strong and try leaving key in on position for 5 to 15 minutes. Then go to start. This works on many vehicles - but many are different. If chip key and theft module working leaving key on for several minutes is supposed to be long enough to tell system vehicle is not being stolen (not many thieves willing to sit in car waiting for 10 minutes). If chip key or key "reader" has failed you need dealer help.

I have a 98 z24 cavalier auto with the 2.4 I can get it to start then I stalls out a couple seconds later I have done the passlock bypass the guy I got it from took the battery out a it was running great...


Unhook your battery again for about 15 minutes. After you re hook it up, let car sit with the key in the on position, but not running. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, and then turn key off, and start it. It may run rough for a few minutes as the sensors and systems are all resetting. If you try running it right away, or cold, it can confuse the regen process

How do you reset the timing on a 1998 VW Jetta?


a car of that year should have an ecu controlling fuel air mix etc. this normally controls the timing.
To reset the ecu on my '95 VW Golf disconnect the battery (negative / black terminal) for 15-30 minutes depending on who you ask. So I do 30 minutes.
If it has central locking make sure you don't leave the keys in the car when reconnect it. swich on the ignition without starting the engine so the dash lights up with the oil light etc. for 30 seconds then off for 10 seconds. then start your car. It will relearn so it will run a bit rough for a while but should settle down. take it for a spin on different types of road ie. slow and fast.

Describe your 2002 Astro van temperature gauge Problem. Gauge goes to redline quickly when idling for a few minutes; "Check Gauge" light comes on. When van turned off, OK within 3 minutes or less. Temp...


Check coolant level, and possibly replace thermostat. When a thermostat gets stuck in the closed position, coolant does not circulate thru motor. Gauge stays midrange when driving, because motor is being cooled by air and or the fan. If car seems to operate completely normal, then the gauge is faulty.
