Question about 2006 Chevrolet Uplander

1 Answer

2006 Chevy Uplander makes a 5-10 second tone when trying to start.

The horn blows loud and clear, lights are bright.. Radio will not come on, Here are soem of the solutions that I tried.. I hook some wimpy cables to the van and at ths time the radio did come on but van still would not start. I know its getting fire--i touch the cables togehter and fire sparks went everywhere.. Is this a starter, I mean the van will not make a single soudn at all besides the 5 -10 second tone..(I am not sure, but I thought that the car did try to turn after I let it charged for a whiule.. im not sure.. ? what are other solutions.)

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy Cavalier intermittent starting

I had the exact same problem on my 1998 Chevrolet 1500 c/k pickup. I also tried a new starter motor and solenoid assembly, but to no avail.

After weeks of searching for the problem, I found that corrosion had built up between the car battery terminals and the power cables extended from the car battery to the starter motor. I'm not sure if this is your problem, but it's worth a try. Also, check all other electrical connections, because these types of intermittent problems are often electrical.

SOURCE: 2006 chevy cobalt woulnt start lock light is on

Are you using the original key that came with the car? The chip in that key may have gone bad. Try using the spare key that should have come with the purchase of the car. You may also be having battery issues. If all else fails....call the people who really know how to rape you...DUM Dum dummmmm....the dealer

SOURCE: clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

I have a 2006 chevy uplander that had an abs light coming on so i took it to my local GM dealer to have it diagnosed and they had told me that the hub and bearing assembly needed to be changed, so i changed it and the light still came on. Upon further investigation i came to discover that the abs wires were frayed in two locations and that the connecters were loose i tightened the connecters and replaced the wires and now my abs light does not come on. I also discovered that i did not need a new hub and bearing assembly after all.

Won't start, battery okay, horn blowing


It takes a lot less power to blow a horn.
I have been reluctant to use horn or lights as an indication of a good battery.
To find out definitively, jump start the vehicle; if it starts you need atleast a batter maybe an alternator as well.
If it does not start with a jump possibly bad starter or power to the starter.
I would eliminate the battery first.

My horn is not loud on my Sonata, and when I lock my doors with the keyless entry it does not beep. What could it be?


Some cars use a low tone horn and high tone horn and they face each other to produce the right sound frequency. One of those horns is probably bad.

Check battery with a volt meter and see what kind of volts are in there. (should be at least 12) If lower, re-charge battery and clean terminals. (make sure you know radio code before removing terminal ends, and how to restore radio). Quick way to check battery is to leave the door open and look at the dome light, If it dims substantially when you attempt to crank engine, battery is likely low.
