SOURCE: Sometimes when Im driving on

change the coil . once you are on the road and car stops, get a cloth and pour it with water and use this watered cloth covering the whole body of the coil to cool down. The live wire connected to positive of the coil might have been added or connected to charging system. re route the wire if this is the position.

"Warning Lights" on the dashboard of "1995 Nissan Maxima"

The warning lights coming on with the key in the on position is normal. If the key is turned to the start position and the engine will not crank over, suspect an internal starter motor problem or lack of power to the starter solenoid. You can try tapping on the starter motor with a blunt object while someone holds the key in the crank position to see if it starts when this problem occurs. If it starts using this procedure, the starter motor will be defective

Why is it that after diving my 06 bmw 528i about 5 min cut car off it restartes drive again for about 15 min cut car off if I try to restart the car I have nothing no start but if I wait for half hour

Have the wiring to the starter checked and tightened. Seems as though the starter has become heat soaked, binds and does not start until it has cooled down..did you install it correctly replace any heat shield that may have been in place? Be sure you have the correct starter...Some will fit but if the torque if not correct it can put strain on the starter.

Car shutting off

whilst i am not familiar with the actual car i would say...
if it cuts out immediately then its electrical...check coil, ignition amplifier etc.
If the car cuts slowly by losing power, spluttering etc it will be fuel related....fuel pump, fuel pump relay, fuel filter.
Does the car restart immediately or do you have to leave it for a while?
what happens just prior to the vehicle shutting down?

If shut off the stabilatrac system. is it stillsafe to drive

Hello edwardrscott, it is safe to drive. However, by shutting of the system you have increased the chances of the vehicle rolling over if you are traveling at a high rate of speed and make a hard turn with the steering wheel. Unless the system is malfunctioning, it would be wise to leave it on.
I hope I was helpful.

Engine cuts off

this is a hard one to fiqure out unless the vehicle does not starty at all because you have distinguish if it is gas or spark. The distributer has a module that may be breaking down. You have to remove the Dist cap and rotor to get to the module. It has two screws that hold in place using 1/4 inch nut driver to remove it. You can take it to oriellys and they can test it to see if it is good or bad. If you have a check engine light on you can take the truck to auto zone to see what codes are in the system. They will do this for no charge.

Driving up an upgrade in Alaska, The vehicle just cut out and has fuel. Will not restart. Fuel filter changed, Sprayed vehicle starter with no luck

Have someone put their ear to the gas tank and listen.And have someone else turn the key to the on position.You should here a buzzng for noise for 5 seconds that verifies the fuel pump is on.You can also spray starter fluid into the throttle body and try to start the truck.If it starts for a second or so then dies that means the engine is not getting fuel from the pump.Replace the pump.If it still doesnt start after that then the ignition needs to be checked for spark.9 times out of 10 when that happens it's the fuel pump or the ignition coil.Labor time on a fuel pump is 3 hours ( I just did one on same vehicle yesterday) And labor time on a coil is an hour or less.

My2005 f250 6.0 l diesel will crank but not start and run

Possibly a crank sensor on or around the harmonic balancer, acts as a magnet like on an old buick. When you get the truck to fire up run it until she gets hot shut it and try to restart if no start continues try spraying starter fluid on the crank sensor itself. What happens is the sensor overheats and wont register that your cranking the engine. Spraying the starting fluid on the sensor will cool it dramaticlly enough for you to restart.
