    Hi!



    Ive been working on a gas station for 7 years and ive seen things like that happend 2 times. Both times it was the fuel hose that was leaking. And when the fuel hits the warm engine it takes fire.

    I dont know if that is the issue with your car, but you can always keep in mind and check the fuel hose for leaks.



    Btw, both the times i managed to put out the fire :)



    Good luck

    Nic

The main cause for the engine to catch fire is leaking hoses but unfortunatley there is little or no hope of the fire not masking the origin. all fuel hoses should have a tree or four layer coating on them but on some rare occasions they perish especially near any other heat source such as top of engine or exhaust. after the fire has happened then you are as i say very unlikely to find first cause. my suggestion is to check all fuel lines for abnormal wear and tear, if vehicle was running fine before the fire then you have to assume it was above.

    i have searched the internet for the same faultys as you mention and the problem which im sure your more than aware of is that this is an isolated incident which is not verry common on such vehicles as you mention, there is a motoring industry which might be able to help you depending on which country you are in which governs all motoring traders and all manufacturers have to adhere to, if you note your country i will endevour to find out the contact number for you to call them and arrange at least for them to see the offending car. your dealer will be however very unhelpful as this is not there issue and more the manufacturers. please post country and i will send you details for contacting them.

My 08 GMC Envoy factory radio went out replacing with aftermarket and now can't get any power or sound from aftermarket do I need to bypass factory amp if so how? Looks like it's set up for bose syst


I would go to an aftermarket radio installation store and try to find someone you could pay to tell you what to do.
Doing what you hope to do has many "tricks" that the common person does not know about.
Even an instruction manual will not tell you these tricks
The worst case scenario is a vehicle fire.
Hooking these up wrong can cause your vehicle to all of a sudden burn up one day.
I have seen it happen several times, since I am a firefighter.
God bless your efforts.

Burned drk blue/red wire now parking lights stay car shut off 1997


The lights are getting power and ground from somewhere. If they're not getting it from the light switch, then it probably has something to do with the blue/red wire you mentioned. If you disconnect the wires from the switch what happens? You don't give much info as to type of vehicle. Removing the fuse for the lights in question does what? If you have no more parking lights once you remove the fuse for the parking lights that's a good thing. It means the issue is limited to that circuit. This kind of problem would normally be in the switch, but since you had the burned wire incident I'd focus there. Also you need to find out why the wire "toast"ed in the first place. Good luck.

2003 gmc envoy rear lights won't turn off


As for the brake lights i would think that the brake light switch is faulty.As for the parking lights i think that the parking light relay is sticking.Switch the relay with another one in the fuse panel with the same part number to see if thats the problem or not.

I replaced my battery in my 2004 GMC Envoy last week now the car cuts off/stalls whenever I come to a complete stop. It fires right back up once I put it back in park and start it again.


The throttle body needs to be cleaned, When you disconnected the battery, the computer reset to factory defaults and now with a dirty throttle body, it will run poorly at idle. Make sure both the front side and rear side of the throttle body are cleaned thoroughly.
