This sounds like the fuel pump pressure check valve is defective, that is the usual cause of this long crank time issue, I am sure if you replace the fuel pump and filter the problem will go away. If you want to verify this issue have a shop run a fuel pressure leak down test, after the key is turned off the fuel press should not drop more than 5 PSI

I was having the same problems. I had the fuel pump replaced, and that made the problem worse. It started to not take gas (for some reason it triggered the kick off switch of EVERY station I tried). So I then had the entire fuel tank replaced! After the whopping bills for those fixes, the dealer discovered that it was just a simple 15 dollar tube that has a tendency to crack. Try asking about it at the dealer before replacing anything else.

I need to find how to program a transponder key on a 2007 Chevrolet Equinox , VIN starts with a 2


This 30-minute learn procedure should be used when all vehicle keys are desired to be replaced or reprogrammed. This procedure will erase all previously learned vehicle keys from the TDM. Once the 30-minute learn procedure has been completed, any remaining vehicle keys may be programmed using the Adding Keys procedure to ensure their continued functionality.
  1. With an unlearned master vehicle key, turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
  2. Observe the security indicator, after approximately 10 minutes the telltale will turn off.
  3. Turn OFF the ignition, and wait 5 seconds.
  4. Repeat steps 1-3 two more times for a total of 3 cycles or 30 minutes.
  5. Important: The TDM learns the key transponder information upon the ignition switch transition from OFF to ON. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
  6. With a master vehicle key, start the vehicle. The vehicle has now learned the key transponder information.
  7. If additional keys are required to be learned, refer to Adding Keys.
  8. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs.

How do fix my 2005 chevy equinox


If the engine is cranking properly, then the problem either has to be in ignition or fuel delivery systems. And if you have an automatic, you might want to check the neutral safety switch for proper operation. And do not ignore the ignition switch.

Start a Camry after it ran completely out of gas. Does the fuel pump fill the line when tank is filled & key turned?


Your fuel pump is located inside the gas tank and every time you turn on the ignition switch the fuel pump will start and pressurize the fuel line for a regular starting cycle. But, since your fuel lines are totally empty. I would turn on the ignition for a 20 second period. then turn it off for a few minutes to let the system fuel system reset and then turn the key back on for the same amount of time and do this for at least 4 times. Each time you turn on the key if you have waited long enough to allow the fuel system to reset. This will in the end fill the fuel lines and fuel rail on the engine and then you should be able to crank the engine and start ok. do not crank the engine until after you have cycled the ignition key about four times and wait about 2 minutes in-between cycles.
Have a nice day, regards, Dennis

Do you mean it cranks but won't start?
Check for spark at a spark plug wire. If you have spark, it's probably not the ignition, but a fuel issue. Do you hear the pump come on briefly when key is turned to on? You may need to stand by the gas tank with the cap off, while someone turns the key on. The pump should hum or whirr for about 2 seconds to prime the fuel system. Then it will shut off until car is cranked over. If the pump and the ignition is working, check fuel pressure.
If you had no spark, it could be the coil, or crank position sensor, or...well, you would have to diagnose the ignition system.
If the problem is not cranking over, check all connections at starter and battery for a clean tight connection. Check for power at the starter solenoid when key is held in crank position. If power there, the solenoid must be bad. If no power the circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid has a problem ( like the starter relay or the neutral safety switch).
Good luck.

A 2005 Equinox fuel issues


check the fuel pressure regulator, it sounds like it may bleeding down. It should hold a prime when key is off I think 30 psi min. if it is bleeding down it will cause an exteneded crank.
