Question about 2001 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

'02 Venture 3.8L electrical sys failure, no lights, buzzers,

No radio or ignition. Not a sign of life at all. It drove fine yesterday, parked and shut off. This morning, it made like to start, turned over and then shut down cold. Jumping does nothing to help, and all the fuses 1 through 7 are intact. Any thoughts?

    misterfixxx had it right! Gave the cables a little twist, and that baby fired right up! Cleaning the connections now, but I sure wish I could bump my rating of his answer up another notch, 'cause he was right on the money.

Check the battery connections, from there follow the ground wire to the engine block and make sure there is a good clean connection, also follow the positive wire to the starter relay. there you will find more wires bolted with the main cable. these wires send power to the fuse box. you may need to use a volt meter to determine if any wires may have faults in them.

I have a 1997 Audi A4 1.8L Quattro that randomly shuts off after about 5-15 minutes of driving. It also shuts off even if its on park. It has some trouble restarting, but after a few tries it succesfully...


THE NEXT STEP IS ,( WHEN IT DOES NOT START), CHECK TO SEE IF IT IS : NO-SPARK, OR NO-FUEL CONDITION THIS WILL LEAD YOU TO THE NEXT STEP. YOU MUST HAVE THREE THINGS TO RUN. SPARK, FUEL & COMPRESSION. HOPE THIS HELPS MOTOR62500..

Electrical problem headlights, radio does not stay on when ignition off


RE: Radio

If you mean the radio doesnt retain the memory presets and clock when you shut the car off or turn the key to the 0 position

that could mean that the yellow wire was not connected to the red or hot/positive lead when the radio wiring harness was connect

if this worked before and now it does check the main fuse box
also some radios have a inline fuse connected on the radio wiring harness (behind radio so you'll have to remove it to check, same thing with checking that the yellow wier is connected)

not sure what you mean by "electrical problem headlights"
some cars shut off the electrical current to the head lights (only power to running/park lights) when the ignition is shut off or the key is at position 0
