I have 2010 Kia Sedona that shuts off after I drove it less than 2 miles, I have to tow it then after two day starts a gain , i'm afraid to drive it on the road, What would be the problem?

I had a similar problem on mine, and found and after some head scratching found what the problem was, I'm not saying this is your case but certainly worth checking. Have you ever got into your car put the key in and it just cranks over but does not fire up, you then turn the key off and try again you might do this a few times then it will fire up okay and run, mine was like this and sometimes just cut out as I was driving, now as you turn the key on their is an immobiliser that comes on then goes off when started that's okay, but the times you sat in the car trying to get it started did the immobiliser light come on if not then the problem points to the transducer that sits around your ignition key switch as you put your key in this transponder reads your key and if it's the correct code your light comes on the dash then goes off when started as with mine I found that it was disconnecting itself and suddenly the car stopped, This is very easy to get to and remove so you can replace it if required, just remove the steering wheel shroud that's sits around the back of the steering wheel this will then expose the ignition switch assembly, on the barrel of the switch at the end were the key enters you will find the transducer it's easy to see as it as two small wires coming from it to a little plug for easy removal there is one small screw holding it in place.

Good luck

I have a 1994 Volvo 960 and the arrow is flashing on the dash plus the W,S,E buttons are blinking and the car won't start now. What is causing this and how can it be fixed?

The lights indicate a problem with the transmission. The fact that the engine wont start, leads me to believe that the PNP (neutral safety switch) is the problem. You will have to have the vehicle scanned to make sure.

I have a 1988 honda civic it shuts down while Im driving. It will start up again after a few minutes. I replaced the fuel pump but the problem is still on going. please help me

Sounds like your fuel pump relay is going bad. On most honda models this is located under the dash on the driver's side of the car. If the relay is okay, then the next step would be to replace the iginition switch. On my 1988 Honda it would not start up after I shut it off and went into the store and came back out. My brother's Honda would just shut down when turning a corner or changing lanes. After changing his fuel pump and fuel filter, we changed the ignition switch and that solved the problem. If I were you I would change the ignition switch.

S light on dash car

It sound like a starter or selinoid problem or just the starter relay or fuse you will need to have starter tested and if okay then move on to your relay and fuses to see if any of them are bad.

Flashing upside down arrow/ slow acceleration

This is a common problem of Volvo S40. You can try this trick to turn off the flashing arrow light.

1) Turn off Engine
2) Turn key to "On" position (Not start the engine), you will see the panel light will on
3) Step on the break paddle
4) Shift the gear from "P" to "L" 10 times
5) Turn key to " Off" position
6) Now you can start the engine.
7) If doesn't work, you can repeat the procedure.

Hope this tick help
Good luck
