SOURCE: 1997 Neon dies, starts after electric fuel pump relay swapped

Hello, I would assume this is your fuel pump inside your tank. I would first however do some basics like a general tuneup. For starters I would replace your spark plugs and wires, rotary cap and button and check your fuses. Run some injector cleaner through your system. You know quick simple cheap things before you get to the fuel pump inside the gas tank which can be kinda expensive. The warm up then dies can be caused by, "blownout or fouled," spark plugs. I hope this gives you a general direction in which to go. A sidenote is that coil packs do not normally run an igntion code and I for one do not like them becuase they are expensive.

SOURCE: trucks shuts off while driving

I have a 2000 dodge ram. I had the same problem the truck would just stall no matter how fast or slow i was going. It ended up being the crankshaft position sensor. You need to check for codes to find the problem. p0385-p0389 is the crank shaft sensor. It takes about 5 min. to change if thats the problem. On that year you might be able to turn the key to the on position but not starting then off, then on, then off, then on (three times) on the third time leave on and watch the odometer it will flash codes then will say p-done.

SOURCE: 2001 chevy silverado 4.8 gas gauge not working properly

Fairly common problem with GM vehicles. The sending unit in your tank has a small circuit board that an arm is attached to which moves up and down according to your fuel level. This circuit board and arm are not making good contact. Unfortunately the only good solution is to replace this part.

2006 ford f150 6cyl. Beeping while driving. Several beeps then stops. And again a few miles later. Now it won't start. Like not getting fuel or timing off. Where do I start????

Sound like the low fuel warning beeper. I would start by looking at the fuel gauge to see if it is on empty. If it is a couple gallons of gas may solve the problem. Unless you burnt up the fuel pump by running out of gas. This will set you back about $800-$1,000. You can buy a lot of gas for that kind of money!

1994 Cadillac deville starting problems

As with any no start issue, someone will need to check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the injectors to proceed.
Could be a relay or the fuel pump, or a long list of things.

5 chirps while driving

Usually the beeps are for a gauge warning or seat belt, etc. If its not a warning for one of the gauges, it could be something like a door open warning for a faulty door switch.

I drive a 2001 Ford Escape. I was driving around all morning with no problems. At my last stop, when I turned on the car, the battery light came on and stayed on. After 4-5 seconds the light went off...

It sounds like you need to have the battery and alternator checked since your symptoms point to one (or both) performing improperly-It might be just that you take short trips, hot weather, and running accessories and the AC is taking it's toll on the electrical system, but now is the time to get it checked-it could save you the cost of an alternator. Go to any commercial auto parts store, they will load test the battery and alternator for free.

2005 Freestar Beeping noise while in drive or reverse . No beeping in park.

You have a blown fuse. It's likly that the battery is'nt charging as the altenator is'nt on either. Because the gauges fuse is blown the gas gauge can be wrong too. The best way to find the blown fuse is to check them all. The cigar lighter fuse can set this problem too as all systems effect all other systems ( big brother is watching ). Theirs other things that can happen but this is where to start. Add a conment and I'll see what you found out and try to help you more.

I hear 5 warning beeps then a pause then 5 beeps again

Get the battery situated, and your beeps should go away. Sounds like an errant security horn from a sloppy connection. Interested to see what happens. TT

Strange beeping noise

I read on another site that if the indicator on the dash is malfunctioning and there's a fault code in the system, the beeping is a secondary indication that there's a need for service. I've had my air bag light blinking for some time now. Yesterday my gauges went out, Oil Pressure, Gas Level, Temp Level, and the Battery Charging Meter, all went dead. After starting the vehicle, it beeps 5 sets of 5 beeps. Since the dash obviously has problems, (Including the Air Bag blinking thing not working), the beeps I now hear are what you are experiencing. However, if you still see the air bag light blinking, maybe your situation is a bit different than mine.
