    I have the same problem, my 01 Aurora won't turn over, If I hold it it then starts but then my speedometer needle will jump all the over to the right and stay there. If I was to turn my car off then start it up it will turn over at the first try and the needle would be fine.

    Im having the same problem also. It may have something to do with the cam shaft sensor im thinking. Is your check engine light on?

My problem was the same. It was diagnosed as needing a new Crank-shaft Sensor. Replaced it and it ran great. Very difficult to get to physically!

My 1998 Olds Bravada just shut down on me while i was driving down the road. My gauges started acting erratically and i just loss all power. I barely had time to get it off the road. I got it started and...

sounds like an electrical problem, check your alternator an battery tru a shop, if the gages go crazy is a sign of the computer trying to shut down componets because the lack of power or voltage

good luck!

I have a 96' Grand Cherokee Laredo . while im driving my gauges will shut off and my windows freeze up. and my doors will relock and everything will come back on. what could the problem be?

May sound crazy but have the alternator checked, when it fails it will shut off the gauges and make all of the electronic equipment act strange. I had a cherokee that did this to the gauges but that was b/c it was full of mud from my previous trip.
