On the steering wheel is the hand controls. Scanning is stuck because of dirt or something. Push the buttons, blow out dirt, wash it off. Mine worked fine after that. (How annoying up til then though. Hope this works. Russ Werth Bowman ND

if the battery has been disconnected or failed ,then that will be the reasons for nor radio and the immobilizer working

I have a 2008 Jeep Liberty ignition start problem a place which ignition Switch already. it stalls in the park position within a couple seconds can get running neutral stays running in park afterwards

i can't get the symptoms here.
installed a new Ignition switch why? broke off the key?
then it wont start.
or it wont start and you replaced it for that guess?
you do know that the , SKIM must be happy to run , right>"
all jeeps 1993 to now , all have an ASD relay
this relay drops out after 3 seconds running for 8 reasons (up to)
one reason is the SKIM is failing due to incorrect key switch install>?
using a scan tool answers this in all cases.
the 8 reasons will be shown on the scan tool (for sure)

the runs in park , comment , confuses me.
but others here posted it does that. you trick the ASD to not drop out.
ok, it dont matter, what matters is ASD dropping out in DRIVE.
car wont move. in any gear, now that matters.
can your fast acting right foot keep it running? (Q1)?????
if yes , its a bad running engine problem (weak)
if no and the ASD drops just before the stall its an ASD ISSUE..
so is it?
The dash has a skim light, (on my 08 the lamp has no words or icons, just a simple red light (seen in the operators guide)
this light must not stick on, or you will not be able to drive.
that is its purpose. (IMMOBILIZER it is)
the did the no words trick, to fool thieves ...... by Design.!
Read the operators guide, now. see those lights? what they mean?

Radio on 97 crown vic wont stop scanning real fast

Who told you to use WD40? WD40 is a lubricant, it leaves a residue. And it can short out your radio. It could be the scan button is shorted or if it doesn't pick up stations, a problem with the antenna or receiver.

How does the 4wd lock work on awd 2013 kia sportage

Its automatic. AWD is different than 4WD. AWD keeps all the wheels working independently. Where 4WD keeps all wheels working no matter what. No need to worry about anything on an AWD set up. Speed doesnt matter, however in my opinion stopping and letting it kick in or out is best. Just in case a part acts up it wont do anything odd at high speeds.

How do I reset computer on a 2000 Nissan frontier

Why would you keep throwing parts at it and guessing what is wrong? Take it somewhere that has a scanner and see what is setting the check engine light. It could be a speed sensor, or anything for that matter. AutoZone and I am sure there are others will scan the code for free. If you live close to me I would scan it for you.

Why does my 1996 C1500 w/t keep stalling while driving...I changed the fuel filter, new battery, new fuel pump, new spark plugs..and 1 new spark plug wire that was bad.

why not all spark plug wires, they dont last the life of any engine.
and cap and rotor.
finish the full 60,000 tuneup and dont skip parts. is this hard?

stalls can be caused by many a thing the EFI works real hard to stop all stalls, and does so very well in 1996, (not now, due to throttle by wire BS)
96 cars are the best cars ever made, all of them.
it has OBD2 scan tool support. making it 10x easier to fix.
ever used a scan tool even a $9 fleabay tool works 100% on 19965 cars. Get one.

Now we do stalls. (engine size stated so will use generic answers)
  1. Lost 12vdc to the EFI system. (see scan tool go, NON COMM, at stall? and dash lights go dim or head lights go dim? ) easy this.
  2. EGR valve stuck open (if you have one) is #1 cause of EFI stalls.
  3. next is never doing a real 60k tuneup ever. so common we like to use crying towels. really. so sad to watch the pull gas tanks and pumps all for the lack of simple tuneup and simple tools.
  4. Gross Misfiring, any mech can drive the car and hear it and feel it.
  5. loss of fuel pressure. (bogs then stalls and no misfire shaking)
  6. Gross flooding. (many causes, we look for black spark plug tips. and other scan tool tests. (fuel trim )
  7. Ever scan it for DTCs at the stall?
  8. Ever scan it ever? for any DTCs ever? of any kind?
  9. serious engine problems, lost compression. (any cylinders or all)
there are tests for each one.
we do engine first
spark then fue
after a real 60k tuneup and it stalls. still.

no fuel can burn with no spark
no spark can run a bad engine.

Traction control has turned itself off and wont come back on

check fuses.
then if fuse good
connect (USA) a top quality scan tool to the OBD2 port (near knees)
and scan it. see all those errors
i use one that can scan all extended, Toyota DTC errors codes,
id bet , you got them,, and the FSM covers each and every one.
all cars,
ABS must be good too., scan it.
on all newer cars, scan it first then wonder.

from about 2004 to for ever.
I scan all 1996 and newer cars, no matter.
i can see errors in the live sensor readings most PCM s cant find.
(like slow oxy sensor, or funky ECT)

scan it.

I have a 2006 kia Sorento LX with 115,000 miles. I noticed only my right front tire was worn .A couple of days later heard a squealing noise coming from the right tire area.Killed on me while driving 60 on...

the wearing on the tire is a separate problem i would assume it would be the wheel bearing/hub assembly those can go bad simply by hitting a pothole to hard why it wouldn't start is beyond me
