Could be a problem with a pcm. a lot of durangos have a problem with the pcm board getting hot and cold too many times and getting a crack the size of a hair. mine did and it sent a po 505 idle air control system fault code. i diagnosed iac valve and that wasnt it then went to pem( the main computer) replaced it and has been fine ever since. but if not computer take it to a auto technician who has tools and knowledge so your not misdiagnosing things and spending lots of unnecassary money :)

Pickup just died no lights came on check engine didnt come on pulled over put in park started up 2 wks later early morning went to start pu would not start turned over just fine tried 4 or 5 times finally...


Maybe an ecu problem, my buddies F150 did this, its a sensor that has to do with the transmission, not sure if this is the same issue, it cuts fuel off, and then shuts the vehicle down, then it can randomly start depending on how the truck reads it at any given time. I can ask him further of what the issue is again....I'll get back to you.

Driving my truimph tr6 down the road and it cut of for no reason. Tried to cranck it back up but would not start . Just filled it up that morning


Could be many, many things but if you just filled it up you may have a bad evaporator gas/vapor separator and that would allow gas to enter evap system when expecting gas and kill engine but it would later start again until the gas did it again moving. If just never starts again then possibly your fuel pump is failing and could be related to not working well with full tank. Other things would be computer, if crankshaft sensor is fried then car wont run at all, any sensor that shorts out can spike voltage and computer shuts down car but will usually start again but stall. Ignition coil pack could be fried, that sends power to the plugs. Bad injectors can cause a stall and no start.

Buick Regal 2001 LS dashboard lights flash off and on


It turned out the ground wire to the battery was loose, Evidently, it loosened up when driving so mimiced the earlier symptoms because it connection was sporadic. I hooked up to a computer to verify after connection tightened and it came away with no errors or problems.

Two possibles, you may have a short in the wire that acctuates the starter or your ignition switch is bad.If you want the procedure for checking these comment back and I'll respond this afternoon.As far as the stalling problem,I'm not sure,does it only do stall in a turn or stop?It's possible the baffle in the fuel tank has broke free.

Electrical ?


I have a '96 tahoe. Look for a code on the battery to see when it was installed. L09 would be december 09. if it is less than 3 years old have it charged and then try.

Speedometer or fuel gage?

If speedometer which is bouncing around, it is likely a bad ground near where the speed sensor wire harness (which connects the speed sensor to the rest of the "network") exits the transmission housing. It's at the very back of the transmission (you have a 4T60E trans) to the left of where the right side half-shaft leaves the trans housing. Just look for damaged wires. If none, replace the speed sensor for $50-60.

If it is the fuel gage, the sensor is probably not "zeroed"--it's reading wrong, too high, and if it were to start at true "empty", it would read right. Thus, the gage is always reading a little high (maybe a 1/8-1/10th of a tank too high?). This isn't a problem until to stop, start, or turn quickly and cause the fule to slosh around in the tank and starve the in-tank pickup which sends fuel to the engine.

If it is the fuel gage, you should simply put as much fuel in as you can and see if the needle goes far above "F". If it does, note how far it went and then practice filling the tank when the needle is that same distance above "E".

Hope this helps.
