I would suggest you ask a local mechanic to have a look as i suspect a faulty computer but i have no pratical experiance with this american car ,now with my head under the bonnet i could no doubt have some idea but iam at a loss here as this is obviously a GM product which is a opel here in europe and iam wondering if this has the same siemans ECU as our cars and if it does then these age vehicles always have problems with this ECU ,its starts like you said with all the dials going right over then eventually it starts missing and throwing up all sorts of codes and the cause could be a simple as a coil pack shorting out but it damages the ECU big time but i could be totally wrong here and its completely different which is why i would advise you to ask a local man who works on these cars .

SOURCE: engine lite is on, car

The place to start is to find out what code or codes are stored in the PCM. Once you have that information you should have an idea of where the problem lies. A part store like Autozone can check codes for you if you don't have that capability.

WHY DOES MY 1997 DODGE STRATUS STALLS


if the battery light is on you still have a fault in the charging system, you need to test your alternator,with the car running to ensure its charging 14v, and id charge the battry up manually to see if it's holding a charge.
you could have a broken wire problem, this could prevent the car from charging, but id test both thos eitem to make sure they work first.

What is causing my Toyota corona to stall when parked at the lights also why is it that it requires a jump start every time to work again when issue occurs, could this be a battery failure or engine f


If you had the battery checked and was good, you should have had the charging system/alternator checked as well. My definite thought here is that the charging system/alternator is not working to recharge the battery. After jump start, there is just enough power in the battery to run the engine and nothing else. It stalls at a light because your foot on the brake to stop is powering the brake lights and that removes power from the engine making it die. Replace the alternator. Done. No more problem.

okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.
