Question about Cars & Trucks

2005 equinox awd 21,000 mi UO107 fault code two engine symbols displayed when you attempt to start engine car will rev up then settle to idle no throttle control -ignition switch does not lock the ste

I can get the car to run normally if I pull one of the relays out and then immediately re-install the relay. Have explained problem to a number of mechanics and they have no solution. The car will sometimes run normally if ran throughout the day. Leave overnight, will idle only when started next day and two engine symbols will display on dash. Again I have to remove a relay and re-install. Another thing, if I do not start the car for a few days the battery will run down and has to be recharged. We live in a remote area of Alaska and cannot drive to a chevy dealer. Sure would appreciate some advice on what is causing the problem.

Your problem could be at the fuse panel. A cheap fix is to get some stranded wire. Small gauge, like 24 or 32 gauge. Cut small pieces and strip the ends and put them down in the fuse panel where the relay goes. Then put the relay in. If this doesn't cure the problem, look to the throttle body plug. best to replace the plug. If the wire woks for the panel, Leave it or replace the fuse panel.

SOURCE: 2000 VW Jetta V5 accelerator/idling problem

these cars are fitted with a fly by wire accelerator pedal that is controlled electronically by the cars computer it is possible that there is a computer problem or the throttle body ( air intake system )or accelerator pedal is playing up.
it is highly possible that the car is doing exactly what you say it is i recommend you take it back to VW and demand that they take a proper look at it you might have to leve it with them for a couple of days and get a service advisor to drive it home so as they can see the problem ocure.
regardles the cars computer should of thrown a code declaring a fault in the system witch should give the tecs some were to start looking.

good luck with this problem if you have any outher questions let me no

SOURCE: 2001 Subaru legacy idle problem

check the IACV (idle air conrol valve) which monitors idle speed. a clean out of one is a good idea periodically either way.

SOURCE: 88 dodge dakota, draining power, relay switch, coil...

You about have to have a bad alternator or battery. What does your amp gauge say when you are driving down the road and have your lights on? Does it show that the battery is taking a heavy charge? Did you put a ohm meter set to DC current on your battery when it is running to see if the alternator is putting out?

SOURCE: On our 2005 Grand Prix, the key is stuck in

Hello! It sounds like you're having a fairly common issue, and one that you should be able to remedy - on your own; in about 30 minutes! :)

First - I'm not sure if you're having the problem where your key is not only stuck, but also won't turn...if so, then follow these steps to be able to turn the key. If you can turn the key, ignore these steps. :)
- On the bottom of the steering wheel - you will see a small, circular cap - using a small flat blad screwdriver, pry that cap off.
- Inside the hole there is a switch that you need to push up on with the screwdriver, and while doing so - you will then be able to turn the key.

Now - once you have done this - you need to reset or "relearn" the security system. Here's how:

1.) Turn the key to the "ON" position, then attempt to start. Car will not start.
2.) On your instrument cluster, you should now see the security light flashing. Leave the car on, and wait approximately ten minutes or until that security light stops flashing. (NOTE: if it doesn't stop flashing after about 10 minutes, turn the key to "OFF", disconnect the battery cables for 10 minutes, reconnect, and restart procedure at Step 1)
3.) Turn ignition to off. Wait five seconds.
4.) Repeat steps 1-3 two more times, for a total of 30 minutes.
5.) The PCM is now ready to learn the security system2.gif on the next crank. Turn the car to off, then attempt to start. Your car should start at this time. I would then start the car with all other keys that you have for that vehicle to ensure that they are all working.

Hope this helps and good luck! Thanks for using FixYa!

SOURCE: P1320 code appeared and we replaced the cam

i just had the same problem in my bmw 325i. Probably vaccum leak or exhaust leak. Check that nothing came loose in these areas. It takes time for your car to learn the new CPS (cam pos. sensor) so give it a few days and reset the code again and see if it works.

Engine starts and idles fine, but will not rev up (2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.1 diesel auto)

If it was a fuel shortage the engine would rev but to limited speed. This is a lack of air to throttle body. Check for clogged air filter and all the piping and the throttle body.

2009 ford explorer wrench appears and starts running rough,

The Wrench Symbol is the Powertrain malfunction indicator: When this symbol comes on it means that the powertrain control module (PCM for short) has detected a problem in the powertrain (engine, transmission AWD), in you case it seems to be the engine that has problem. The number of problems that turns this light on is not cut and dry, it can be any number of things that have malfunctioned. What must be done now is to the the system scanned for fault codes, a fault code or codes is stored for the problem when this light came on or in your case comes on. It is likely this problem is covered under the emission system warranty if you have less than 70,000 miles on the truck.

I have a 2005 cgev equinox. it takes about 2 to 3 times before starting. the mechanic said the locking gas cap is causing this/ what is your opinion

If the gas cap is causing this you should have a engine light with a fault code PO 4155 fault is mass gas pressure loss.I personally gone through about two hundred the way i explained it.

The engine light on my 2005 Equinox is in,

The check engine light comes only when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.
