Car shut off and will not start after lights turned on
When I was driving down the road I noticed that I could hear my engine making a loud noise through my radio speakers, (which the radio was not on) I decided to test to see what the car would do once I turned my car lights on, and it sounded like it went into second gear, once I sut the lights off it was fine, when I got to my destination, and parked I turned my lights on again to see what it would do and the car shut off and would not turn back on. What is my problem??

it sounds to me that your fuel pump is going out and if your battery light is going on then you might check the battery by disconnecting battery while engine running if it dies then your then your alternator is shot if not then you might have battery checked out

Just replaced water pump (and timing belt) yesterday and squeal ... When driving it make a noise but change out and caught speed the noise is coming from driver side.Missing: 1999 plymouth breeze
check to see if it has a viscous fan hub. if so then it is the hub action doing what it is sup[posed to do. When the engine is shut down for a period of time the fluid is allowed to flow back to the drive section of the unit . ON start up it virtually locks the hub so that the fan is travelling at full engine rpm and the noise you hear is the air flow through the radiator After about 30 seconds to a minute the fluid is pumped back to the reservoir and the fan hub drive slips and the fan slows down and the noise goes. IT will come and go on a properly operating hub as the coolant temperature engages and disengages the hub drive . You should notice it at stop lights , slow moving traffic and hard work at high rpms.
Whatever happened, the engine computer sensed it and turned on the light. You will have to have the computer scanned for the trouble codes- a tech or mechanic could then follow the codes to find the problem.
sounds strange. have you checked to see if you have an exhaust leak? you also may be hearing the first clues to your catylitic converter starting to break down. Check for an exhaust leak first and let us know how it looks. Thanks
Hey mate, Had exactly the same problem. Suggest you take the car to your local auto transmission repair centre (not holden) and they can check the electrical diagnostics - if it the Transmission inhibitor Switch (as it was on mine - if so should cost you no more than 1 hour labour and about $75 - $95 for the switch.
the shifter has a park neutral lock out device. it will not shift out ( see left side of console for hidden cover, move lever inside for emergancy shifting) until you start motor, step on the brake and then the solenoid in the shifter box unlocks the shifter.
but that is not the problem.
back up. car will not start or the car will not crank.
turn key ,nothing happens. turn key , just hear starter solenoid click turn key , motor cranks, grrrrrrrrrrrrrr, but will not start.
You mentioned the noise was from the left (drivers side) front. The compressor is on the passenger side in association with the engine compartment. Question, once the noise starts does it continue while stopped or only while moving?
Are you absolutely sure it is the ABS light that is flashing?
Also, to confirm descriptions, when you state that when you try to turn it back on you get "nothing, doesn't even crank" are you saying there is no click for the starter relay, no starter engagement, and the engine doesn't spin over?
Your description of the noise when you turn the truck off sounds a bit like the sound a muffled backfire might make. Maybe the truck is running really right, but that wouldn't explain the ABS light flashing. It could explain the Check Engine Light (CEL) flashing as running rich enough to backfire would be an emissions issue which would cause a flashing CEL.
