Question about 2009 Chevrolet Traverse

Open Question

Traverse is dead and keys stuck in ignition

Went out to start the 2009 Traverse this afternoon. Would not turn over at all. Made a clicking noise, but the radio and light worked. Tried starting again- now only the malfunction light came on headlight on very dim. Also the keys are struck in the ignition. The car continues making a patterned clicking under the hood. So the car is dead making a clicking noise with the key stuck in it.

That is absolutly normal, the fan is designed to run at a certain temperature not just when the motor is running. On short trips or cool weather the fan won't run at all till needed.

2009 chevy traverse wont start after hooking amp up car was fine


OK. you had the battery disconnected. Here is what you do. Turn on the key. The security light will begin to flash. Wait (about 10 minutes) with the key in the ON position. The security light will stop flashing. TURN OFF the key. Then, turn on the key and start the car. Security system is supposed to prevent theft for a 10 minute delay. This usually discourages any thief. This will work, You just need to be patient with the 10 minutes. It seems like an hour when you wait ten minutes for that security light to stop flashing.

Has been running perfectly fine, drove it home this afternoon, parked on the driveway. went to drive it tonight and it won't start, it won't even turn over.


Year make and model might help a bit. Things to check for are starter, alarm, spark, fuel. Does it make any noise while cranking, does it crank. The more info you supply the better the answer

The battery is dead or not connected tight enough. Bring the battery to an auto parts store, and have it tested, it sounds like it's dead or VERY weak, that's what those signs and symptoms are telling me.

Hi Strathms, I'm glad to help!

I shooting in the dark here, but if your losing brightness in the dash lights and the radio then the most likely cause would be the "DIMMER SWITCH". Of -Course you could also have a ground issue, but I would start with the dimmer switch. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.
