Chances are the shop may have left a connector off one of the system's sensors, a common one is the sensor in the air intake duct, this is called the IAT sensor, go to Kragen auto or Autozone and have them run a code test, it's free, let me know what it is and what the shop did to your car and I will let u know if it is poss they screwed up, armed with info u can request they fix the issue free of charge..

1998 oldsmobile bravada a/c compressor leak


If you know it's the compressor it will need replacing. If you think it's the compressor then have a shop recharge it with UV dye. In a week or so they can use a uv light to confirm where it is leaking.

The check engine light comes on to tell you there is a problem with engine management (computer controls). It has nothing to do with vehicle maintenance. Have the computer scanned for trouble codes. If the light is on there will be codes. If it is flashing it means the problem is a little more urgent and the catalytic converter could be damaged as a result of the current problem. Typically flashing check engine lights indicate there is a cylinder misfire.

1998 oldsmobile bravada security light flashing car wont start


This happens due to a failed or failing antitheft system. When the system cant communicate properly, it will disable your starter or injectors and show the SECURITY light. Go to this link for info and ways to beat this system yourself.

1998 olds Bravada, runs great in the driveway, once in gear, i give it gas and it quits, only happens in cold weather


Bad TPS will give you a SES light. Possible low fuel pressure from bad fuel pump. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the service port close to the firewall, should stay above 50 psi when juicing the gas. Only use OEM parts on a Bravada! Try "thepartsladi" store on eBay.

Service engine soon light


Yes, it means it needs its routine periodic service. Not performing maintenance will inevitably lead to more expense.

Is the check engine light on also? Your bravada is in limp mode (it is restricted to 2k rpm to protect the engine from damage, due to a problem), something is going on, so go back to auto zone and have them check for any codes (free service). They can tell you what the codes mean and suggest what you should do. If you have questions, post them here with the code #'s.

simply it's time to take it in for a dealer service...it may mean anything from a simple oil change to an timing belt replacement.  Which I think is due at 60k
