The engine is always started and it runs, until warmed-up. After that, depending on accelerator position, road speed, and battery charge, electric mode can be entered. This will usually occur when (lightly) re-applying pressure on the accelerator, after having relieved pressure.

94ford probe won't start

Well Sandra , the thing to do would be to get it to turn the engine over with the key , Then diagnose the no start problem . Look at a wiring diagram (do you know what that is ?) When you turn the key to start , the electrical part of the ignition switch sends B+ voltage to the starter interrupter relay through the clutch switch to the starter motor solenoid . Testing the electrical circuit with a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter with the help of a wiring diagram ,so you know where to test is the proper way to diagnose the problem . Not guessing ,an rigging the stuff . You can find free wiring diagrams here
Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine ! Under system click on engine ,then under subsystem click starting . Click the search button then the third blue link .

I have a 2005 renault grand scenic that recently went in the garage for work and has come out with the 'parking brake failure' message on the dashboard. The handbrake is electric and is working perfectly...

A renault tech told me how to reset the electronic parking brake on my grand scenic without going to dealer, this works if you have had to pull the yellow emergency handle in rear which i have had to do this week.

Turn your ignition on without starting engine, have drivers door open and press lock button on keycard
put keycard in reader and press start button for 5 seconds.
pull large part of manual handbrake handle and push small button with red light without letting go of larger handle and you should hear the handbrake motor reset!

That should be it!

My 2005 ford explorer started displaying *check charging system* and after a while went off in the middle of the road, I replaced it with a new one and it's started but when I push the pedal it stalls...

You can put a pressure gas on the fuel line and check the pressure from the pump and see if it is running and then shutting off intermittently . I would also change the fuel filter if you have not done so already.

I have a 1993 chev cavalier 2.2 engine. I start it when it's cold. Sometimes it cuts off and want start. After 10 min then it will start and run fine. Sometimes I start it and the engine kick back, like i...

Instead of listen to guesses , ( i will told it could be a fuel pump )
I was told it could be a fuel pump

Testing before replacing parts is the normal way to diagnose these type problem's Fuel pump pressure an flow testing , voltage drop test the electrical circuit . Plus viewing scan data with a scan tool !!!!

By the time you get done replacing parts ( an it still won't start ) It would have cost less at a qualified repair shop.

Periodically my 2008 Altima push button ignition won't start. Dealership says battery, alternator, elec. system all ok. Any help?

There is a sensor near your brake pads that tells the electrical component in the bush button that you are pushing in the brake. I was having the same problem and just had mine replaced.

If you told a good dealer parts person what you where trying to do they could get the correct calibration processor for you, you are dealing with a bunch of by the book parts people, can't think outside the box.
