1997 2.2L S-10 hard to turn over/wont start

I have this truck with 97000 miles on it but it wont start and is very hard to turn over. I was cruising at about 35mph with the clutch pushed in about to turn when it just died all of my electronics were working but the motor had stopped. When i came to a stop i tried to start it but it would not start and it sounded like the starter was under alot of stress

How do i get the engine management light off 51 plate honda accord please uk model


Maintenance lights can be turned off by. Turning the ignition to on position, press the gas pedal three times slowly within five seconds. The light will flash. When it stops flashing, turn it off. The light should go off after the vehicle is started.

02 TB, cruise control works intermittently, now wipers wont come on


Debbie, this sounds to me to be the control arm that turns your wipers on and also has the cruise control operation also on the lever, When this wears out you can have weird symptoms, sometimes the wipers will work and the cruise wont and sometimes the other way around. On the starting issue, it sounds like the ignition switch on the column is worn out sometimes making contact and sometimes not. If the vehicle has a ton of miles on it these plastic parts wear out and need replacing.

2003 Ford Sport Trac Cruise Control Sticking


I "HAD" the same problem but fixed it.

'03 Sport trac w/70,000 miles. Started around 60,000 mile mark with light flashing briefly, only engaging 1in 10 times. Also, I noticed slightly decreased gas mileage around the same time.

Cruise Control problem corrected itself when I replaced the spark plugs and wires. Owners manual reccomended replacing plugs and wires at 100K. Do yourself a favor and replace them early. They were very difficult to get out. I noticed arcing from wires to block and several areas of friction damage to insulation. Wrap new wires with sheathing and tie wraps to prevent friction problems in the future.
