If the lights are flickering I would be checking for a loose or dirty battery connection. If the power to the cpu is intermittent ( indicated by flickering lights ) that is why the engine dies

SOURCE: the hazard lights start flashing and I can't turn

there must be alarm fitted that either has the siren disconnected or turned off. Basically sensing an intrusion alert or voltage drop. Flip out the hazard switch, there will be a wire which runs seperate from the body loom into this light, just cut it, the correct one though. if needs be trace it back.....probably end up behind the glove box

SOURCE: hazard warning lights won't stop flashing

this sounds like the alarm system is going off,try unlocking from the pass/side door and if lights dont flash then you have a bad lock switch in the door.

It seems you have an extremely scary and dangerous situation going on, you should never smell gas ....anytime. .

Because this is so far out of the ball park, you just have to get it looked at by a pro.

How much fuel is left when the low fuel light comes on


It varies for every car. Usually 1-1.5 gallons when the low fuel light comes on. I drove my last '93 Ford Taurus around until the gauge said it was empty. Lifted the car and took the gas tank off and it had 3 or more gallons still in it. Here's some fun, zero your odometer, fill the gas tank and drive it until the low fuel light comes on. Then drive it till it dies out, obviously somewhere near home or where someone can drop off a full gas can.

2001 GMC Sierra cuts out when I drive and I make a left turn, it just dies out and I have to restart it. Anyone had a similar problem or has any solutions?


If it does not do this with a full gas tank i suspect you have a problem with a (somewhat famous now) the GMC fuel pump that is located in fuel tank (i guess you missed the recall on these) , because it does restart right after it stalls out correct ?

My 07 Chrysler 300 (Standard) steering wheel locked up while car is in drive. I was unable to steer,(car coasts), lights still on, full tank of gas. What is causing car to cut off out of nowhere? This is...


If I understand you, the steering wheel will not turn. Or is it that it is hard to turn? If it doesn't turn at all, I would not drive the car at all until it is repaired. If this should happen to you on a turn or when traffic stops in front of you, you could kill someone. It is not uncommon for a car to go into a slow speed mode, but what you describe is very dangerous.

Has power but wont start,has full tank of gas


Its not common but you may have water in your gas. You will need to check engine for both fuel and spark. If the car will start then die off a short squirt of ether then it would be a fuel problem. Then you'll need to find out if it to do with the fuel or the fuel system.

Car acted like the battery died/cannot fill gas tank.


Evaporator vent silenoid at rear by gas tank is most likely stopped up. Is the check engine light on? If so, take to Auto Zone and get them to scan it for free. Get codes only and post them.

Had same problem: cutting out at low rpm, jerking, a huge clunk or shudder at higher speed (like transmission was going out), and rough idle. All these symptoms were intermittent.

CHECK THE FUEL FILTER!! Changed the fuel filter and thing runs fine!!
