What makes the car start and run but gauges go off and key light comes on


The first part is magic, (EFI system and good engine)
but?????
gauges go off can be a bad fuse or loose fuse to cluster.
when any Gas engine stalls. the RPM drops to 0
the EFI sees that and goes to key on, not started self test.
this is covered in the operator guide.
key light comes on KEY LIGHT, HUMMMMMMM
Let me look at the waring lamps, there are many.
one light is engine overheat that is logo of a thermometer but looks
just like a key.
http://dashboardsymbols.com/the-symbols/
is this a engine stall post
or engine runs perfect all the time , but only my dash acts funny
you didnt say?

key lamp?
immoblilzer (big trouble there)

a stall is anytime engine RPM drops to zero. called a STALL.
if your cars engine stalls, post that way, the lamps are all normal
on at any stall, on any car.
at a stall , rpm goes to zero and MPH drops to zero as you coast to a stop , stalled. that is all normal for any stall.

if engine stalls.
that is complex.
here is list.
  1. lost 12vdc power to EFI system. (battery died, fuse blown)
  2. never gave your car the 60,000 mile tune up, see opr, guide.
  3. bad fuel.
  4. overheated the engine.
  5. engine oil gone, never ever checked at each fill up.
  6. other more complex EFI system parts failures, ASK.

2000 sebring 2.5 stalls out and overheats


Have the fault codes read. Replace faulty items. Use only genuine items as non-genuine replacement are not always compatible with the OEM fitted CPU units. The engine light is telling you that the cpu has found a fault ( probably overheating) from a radiator fan not coming on. The stalling could be the cpu going into protect mode and stopping the engine

Engine stalls


The probable reason for engine stalling can be overheating.
The engine can be overheated due to many reasons and their remedies are listed below:
1. Insufficient coolant and water in radiator - Refill the coolant and water in reservoir
2. Radiator fan not working as needed - Loose connections, faulty fan
3. Damaged hoses and pipes - Replace hoses and pipes
4. Clogged pipes - Clean them

I think my car is overheating. I just did a whole bunch of engine work and sometimes when I pull up to a red light it stalls out. It isn't the timing because we've gotten it looked at. Our mechnic says...


Without hearing the noise, there is no way anyone could tell you where the noise is coming from. I would recommend taking your mechanic for a ride to show him what is happening. If it is overheating, your temperature gauge will be high (if you have a gauge) or your water temperature light light should be coming on. Make sure the light works. It should come on for at least a couple seconds when you start your engine. Anyway, if the mechanic is in the car when it stalls, he will no longer tell you that nothing is wrong.

1989 Ford Festiva, keeps stalling as driving.


I had the exact same problem. The cooling fan was failing to come on and thus overheating the engine. Check the cooling fan, cooling fan thermoswitch, and cooling fan relay ( behind drivers headlight ). If you pull the connector off of the thermoswitch the fan will come on whenever the car is in "run"
