Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

2008 Saturn vue: periodically when breaking the radio turns off and comes back on, head lights and dash lights flicker. Sometimes it's dead and once I put the key in the ignition I have to slam the driver side door to get a connection for the electrical to come on so I can start it. And when that won't work I have to poo the hood, adjust the battery cover and the lights will come on if the key is in the ignition. Then it will start.

SOURCE: 2001 saturn sl2 won't start

Hard call without inspecting it but it could possibly be a fuseable link. I am not familiar with newer models but sounds like a connection issue. If it has fuseable links then one could be bad. Had the exact same problem and I spent $350 on parts and a days labor until I found the link. 20 min later and $5 I fixed it. i was really frustrated but when another vehicle did it, I fixed it quick

SOURCE: Radio will not shut off once key is removed...

radios have two feeds one from the ignition and one permanent live. if this is the case then you will find they have not fitted in correct order or even in some cases not at all on the ignition as it does not realy need it. you will also find if the stereo is brand new that all the cables will be clearly marked with a tag and you will have to disconnect the cable for the connection to the car warnign system.

SOURCE: The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.

I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps
