The ignition switch is going bad. What is happening is when your driving the switch is actually shutting off and turning back on. Try shutting it off yourself and see if it simulates your problem. These switches are a common problem. After the switch starts to get worse you will start haveing problems getting it started. The switch will allow to crank the motor but it will not turn on the vehicle. You will notice that while you are cranking you have no idiot lights on the dash when it does not start. Please let me know what you find or give me more info to help you further.

Misfire on 2-4-6-8 cylinders

Welcome to the Cadillac world. These are the second worst to work on when it comes to computers/wiring. Mercedes are the worst. Diagnostic time at my house is $300(tells you what is wrong). I refuse to do them at work, they don't charge enough and I get yelled at for taking to much time. Just take it to a dealer.

Need to reset the check engine light

This is for the 16 pin diag
With obd-2 or home made code reader retrieve codes. After each code press and hold the button on the tester for 6-8 sec. then retrieve next code. After code is received press and hold for 6-8 seconds. Continue until code reader flashes only 1 time. Do this for slot 3, 8 and 14. Once all sections return a single flash code indicating no malfunction, turn ignition off. Next time you start the vehicle the light should be off. If still on, check for codes! If new codes perform repairs!

1998 Isuzu Rodeo Temp gauge is normal and then it went to hot and then back to normal. Did this several times. Checked and the engine was not overheating. Had the thermastat changed.The same thing is...

Try starting engine when cold and rad cap, and/or coolant return cap off, and turn heater on. Let engine run and add coolant as necessary to rad as /if level goes down, and allow engine to reach normal operating temperature, and wait for the rad fan to come on, 2 or 3 times. Give engine a slight rev for 5 seconds or so, every once in a while while doing this, just to increase flow and help expel air better. Keep an eye on coolant level while doing it, and add as necessary, then put cap(s) back on, fill bottle to proper level, and try that. If that doesn't work, I'd question if air hole in thermostat was positioned properly when new one was installed, if you have a V-6 engine.

Once i get my codes for my 2033 acural tl, how

Code is in numbers. Look at preset buttons on the radio. They are numbered 1-6. Turn on car key, enter code #'s on preset buttons. This must be done 5 or 6 times in a row, till the radio unlocks. This is for anit-theft purposes.

5 series' of 5 beeps in a row on start up

Check the Air Bag Indicator Light. When you turn the car on it should stay on for 6 seconds and then turn itself off. If a fault is detected in the system operation check, the indicator light will either fail to light, stay on continuously or flash. The flashing may not start until up to 30 seconds after the initial systems check.

If there is a fault in the system AND the air bag indicator light fails to light then an audible tone will alert you- it will be a set of 5 chimes (bells/beeps) five times in a row.

Have the Air Bag serviced and the indicator light bulb changed. Since the dash will be off in order to change the bulb, I would have all of the other dash lights changed at the same time. If one goes out, others will surely follow.

Good luck!
