Sounds more like electronic ignition switch. Coil or voltage regulator would display loss of power during acceleration, power surges (fuses blown).

    Yes it could be. Usually when the problem is one of your sensors your check engine light will come on. Have you put the car on a diagnostic machine yet?

Why did my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe sudden lost power while driving?


what happened when you tried jumping the car? sounds like it could be a bad ignition switch since only non-switched things work.

Ran oil out in 2005 chevy equinox. it stalled and died while i was driving it. had it towed home. it would crank over, but wouldn't start. finally battery went dead. jumped it, but idiot on the other...


if you own a charger, connect it to your battery and charge to full.. then disconnect the negative with the key on..this kills the entire car computer and all..shut the key off and reconnect the negative cable tight..turn the key to the on position DO NOT TRY TO START.. let all the dash indicators go out first..then try to start..otherwise all the codes held in the computer need erased..may require the help of an auto electric shop..or parts store..

My 1999 tahoe has a security problem. The light comes on and goes off it will start.If the light flashes it fails to start. can you help


The pass lock is beginning to fail.You can try reporogramming it following this procedure. If it still continues to happen the pass lock/ignition tumbler may need replaced.
PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET ALL GM CARS 1999 AND UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the PASSKEY system to recognize your key

If the security light is flashing when that happens, you need to turn the key to the ON position, and let it sit for 10 minutes, so it can reset the security code. Start it up as normal and let it idle for 5 minutes.
