I have a 03 cavalier it starts up then shuts back off what causes it


Hi Missy , There are a number of thing's that can cause this . Fuel system problems , ignition system problems , the PCM - powertrain control module , the PCM is the engine computer ! There are multiple sensors on this vehicle as with all cars for the 80's on . From 1996 on they have more electronic modules then before , Anti-theft systems , air bags, anti - lock brakes etc.
Does you car have any lights light on the dash ? check engine ? Security ?. When you first turn on your key the dash lights light up an after 7 seconds the lights should go out , Do they ? You should check for DTC's - diagnostic trouble codes . That means hooking your car up to a scan tool . If it starts an shuts back off right away I would think a anti-theft system problem . If the anti-theft thinks it being stolen it disables the fuel injection in some cases !

1998 sunfire in codep1629, how do I fix it


You may want to do some research on the code. The basic problem is the anti-theft system is not seeing a crank signal and shutting down the fuel pump. It could be the security system, or the crank sensor, or other issues.
If you have auto start or a remote starting system it can cause these problems too.

My 1996 Buck LeSabre won't turn over. I took the starter off and had it checked, it was fine. I checked the starter fuses and all was fine. \ Cabling was fine to the starter, voltage was 12.54...


Be sure the AIR BAG/VATS fuse 10 amp, is good. there is a STARTER ENABLE RELAY up high on the left of the steering column. I ASSUME the anti theft light is not flashing?" at the STARTER ENABLE RELAY the YELLOW wire is hot in the crank mode and comes out large PURPLE to the starter. the small purple wire is hot in the crank mode if the fuse (air bag/vats) is good. the small yellow is grounded through the park switch and the VATS module (anti theft)

The car motor just quits all the gages stay normal except the oil gage.


Alot of the time, the Anti theft that came stock on your vehicle can shut the car down. When the system starts to get worn down, the car tends to mis communicate and shut itself off. This is to prevent theft. #1. Is there a light somewhere on the dash when this happens? Should say security or anti theft. If you see this light, then this is 100% your problem. This link explains the situation and offers some proven DO IT YOURSELF solutions. Hope this helps. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Anti theft malfunction


Heres the skinny....the wire around the ignition switch is actually an antennea for your anti theft transponder system. the other two wires work in conjuction with the anti theft system in that it supplies power to the ignition switch itself when your key is inserted into the ignition. Inside your key is a chip which emits a certain frequency known only to your vehicle.....when this key is near the ignition switch (ie going to start the car) the antenna senses the frequency and the anti theft system powers down and powers up the ignition so you can start your vehicle. Thanks for using fixya! Any more questions shoot me a email!

Sincerely,

JC
