SOURCE: daytime running lights are not working on my 2005 equinox

Just had same problem. After ruling out easy checks like parking brake switch, and park shift selector switch, It was a burned out resistor that is located inside the front left fender. Take off the front tire, remove the inner fender liner, the ceramic resistor is towards the front. It crumbled when I removed it, Could only get replacement from dealer for about $65.

SOURCE: 2005 Chevy Equinox the key will not turn past the

Equinox/Torrent body vehicles have a common ign cylinder problem. The repair is supposed to be to remove the cylinder , clean and coat end with PTE grease. This seldom works. The best way to fix a non turning cylinder is to replace it.

SOURCE: My wifes Chevy Equinox DRL's are not coming on.

You need to buy a new DRL Resistor, about $85 dealer only of course. It's located on drivers side front wheel well I believe it was towards the front bumper. The part is ceramic, just change it out. Mine did the same exact thing and this will fix it!

SOURCE: I have 2007 chevy equinox.

Turn on your headlights and have someone watch them for you. turn the ignition key just as if you are going to start the vehicle. If all the lights stay just as bright throughout this procedure you probably have a vehicle with an ignition system fuse. The fuse may come in the form of fuse in the fuse panel or as a fusible link in the small red cable from the positive battery terminal. If it's in the fuse panel just replace it.(even if it looks okay, it may just be a fifty cent fix) If it's in the cable it then requires a test light and the ability to do a little electrical trouble shooting. It may come in the for of a sealed circuit breaker in the fuse box under the hood. Just check out your owners manual. If you don't have one and you have a parts store close by. You may even be lucky enough to have a parts store that sells Chilton manuals or something like it. If they aren't sealed in plastic you may find the info free by just browsing the pages in the store.

sounds like a security problem. most hondas have a chip in the key try another key. if your battery went dead that will make your security light come on when you try to start it will run for a few seconds then shut off look at the light indecater that shows a key or says secureity. this light will flash at you and continue as long as you got the key in the start posistion. the car may think its been stolen. using the correct not a spare that is used to unlock the doors.but the key you use every day put it into the door and turn it to lock twice then unlock twice this should reset your system
if you have a security system that is after market look under your dash board for a red or yellow wire that has a small reset button on it. above the pedals or on the left side of the floor board by the fuses. if you have this type turn the key to the on but not start hold the button for 5 seconds then let go. turn the key off wait 10 seconds then try to start your car K HAVE FUNNNNN

Flashing light shows a car and a keyh inside

Thank You Very Much for The Maintenance Required Light Info, as far as the flashing car w the key inside. I'm not sure what key we have? When we bought it it only came with one key so we tried to make a duplicate, which ended up not working because we later found out it needs a chip (or probably what I hear as the smart key?) If the light is supposed to be on (and normal) why does it need reset?

The Maint Reqd light blinks after 4,500 miles, and stays ON continuously after 5,000 miles. This is to remind you that you need an oil change. Give the info from you about your key, you do not have a smart key. You have a transponder key. Off topic, but, FYI, a Toyota dealer can program a transponder key for you.
Back to the Maint Reqd light. Here is how you reset it:
Turn the key on.
Make sure that the odometer reads "ODO", and displays the total mileage traveled...If it displays trip a or trip b, push the black button by the odometer to make the display read ODO.
Turn the key off.
Press and HOLD the black trip reset button until advised to release it.
Turn the key ON. (keep holding th reset button down)
Observe the odometer display.
you will see 5 dashes, 4 dashes, 3 dashes, 2 dashes, 11 dash, followed by five zeros, and the total mileage you started with will re-display.
Release the button.
Turn the key off.

Regarding the flashing light with the car & the key: This is the indicator to show potential theives thatyou vehicle has a sophosticated security system, and it CAN NOT be started by "hot-wiring" it. The flashing light is normal, and consumes no battery power. I hope that this helps you understand these two items better. Thanks for choosing FixYA, and the graciousness of a FixYa rating for my solution to you would be greatly appreciated. Glad to be of assistance; please feel free to call upon me anytime. Have a great day.
