When i lock al my doors on my 2004 Chrysler pacifica from my keychain all doors lock except for the driver door. The alarm is still activated but if someone tries to open the driver door it will open and...

This can happen If you have used the IGN. key to unlock the drivers door after you locked them from the fob. This can also be caused by a stuck button on the drovers door. Check the drivers door all buttons to see if any are stuck. If you do not have any stuck buttons. Try this, from inside the car, with out the car running, use the button on the drivers door to "lock all doors". Then use the fob to unlock them, then get out and press the lock button on the fob twice real quick. This should cause the drivers door to lock as the others. Hope this helps Fix Ya Up.

P0171 System too Lean - Bank 1.
P0446 Evaporative Vent Control Circuit Malfunction.

Sounds like your Evaporative Vent Control is stuck closed and it's causing a vaccuum in the tank, starving the engine of fuel because the pump can't **** it out.

The more fuel in the car, the worse it will be because the vaccuum will be more pronounced if there is little air in the tank. Just TRY running the car with the fuel cap off or very loose. This will probably work and will give you an indication that this is the fault. Use the opportunity toget it to a garage to get the problem fixed (Don't drive around with no fuel cap, it's against the law!).

Working on a 97 nissan pathfinder would start but very rough idle and would not rev up. changed plugs cap and rotor now wont start at all? any help would be great

most likely coil insulation has failed.most commonly occurs in tower area.remove cap,crank engine and watch where spark arcs to .if it comes out anywhere but the outlet portion of the tower or you dont see any at all...the coil has a failure.bad news is you have toget the whole distributor assy.coil not serviced separately.

My car wont start. what can it be?

if the sparkplugs dont spark, you will never get the car started. it needs the spark to initialize combustion. replace all sparkplugs and try again. press the petrol pedal twice while cranking, and hold it down the third time, or else you will flood the carbutattor, and will not start either. if the car does not have electronic ignition, check the ''points''. good luck

Key stuck in igntion 2005 five 4 cylinder

The key being stuck in the ignition is because the cars gears wont go into park all the way.. The shifter is the problem with this. You need to take it to a mechanic so they can take your actual shifter apart and fix the little button you press on the actual shifter. Sounds dumb, but thats what they did for me, and the key comes right out. Also, if you dont get it fixed soon, you will have some horrible times ahead of you ..
