When the battery in those is going it will send a low amount of voltage to the sensors triggering many trouble codes.disconnect the negative side for five minutes and reconnect.this should reset the computer ad erase any trouble codes.

there is a code in the PCM that needs to be checked out. a light the stays on tells you this a flashing light tells you what ever the problem is can cause a running problem possible engine damage and is allowing the emissions to go out of range.

1999 denali-5.7- looses power and starts to shimmy...then shifts down and struggles to stay at speed...service engine soon light begins to flash and eventually comes on solid. This happens intermittently...


flashing check engine light is a sever engine misfire that will cause a catalytic convertor failure which is about a $1500 repair in your denali. Have someone scan the code for you and let us know the codes stores in the computer are. Could be as simple as a tune up to fix the problem or bad as a fuel pump

CAR WON'T STAY RUNNING


when key on and engine off, does the security light flash constantly? if so its shutting down the fuel pump, it starts momentarily due to the computer priming the engine with fuel. how to reset, turn key to run position, leave it on touch nothing, takes 10-12 minutes, start watching light around 10 minutes. it will stop flashing... turn key off, then back on and start this will reset the security system. they are sensitive on this platform car it will happen again. good luck!

My 2001 chevy malibu ls v6cranks,starts up but right after,right after dies like somethings shutting it down. radio was locked from me disconnecting my battery without disconnecting the anti theft system....


Is the Security light flashing??? If so, the security system (passlock II) is ******** off the fuel because the car thinks it is being stolen. If the security light is flashing, leave the key in the "on" position for about 10 minutes and it will stop flashing. Then turn the car off and try to start like you normally would.

Service engine soon light


You need to have the vehicle scanned or pull the code out with a code reader,and address/fix the code.If you do not repair the problem,you can clear the code,but the service engine light will come right back on.To clear the code,you can disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for at least 20 minutes,then reconnect the battery,but the car is going to be hard to get to idle,because sometimes the computer has to relearn how to idle the engine without stalling.Good luck.
