SOURCE: 91 Dodge ram 50 ignition problem, rough idle in drive,dies when braking

my ram 50 starts just like any other vehicle, (no light switch pulling whatso ever), it sounds like somebody haas rewired something wrong or you have a loose connection and when you hit a large enough bump it cuts your power. Start it up and find a speed bump somewhere and drive over it enough to give your truck a jolt and see if it dies.

SOURCE: 2005 malibu where is the brake light switch?

There isn't one.  This car has a "brake and throttle by wire" system and the brake light switch is inside of that.  You have a bad brake position sensor.  Figure $240 or so at a dealer.

SOURCE: 2000 blazer 4.3 hard to start (fuel problem)

Do you have the fuel tester hooked the in the overgrown air valve on the fuel rail in the back of the engine? Or do you have the fuel line unhooked in the back and hooked to the pressure pump? You want the fuel pressure to be in that 60 lb range so if you are hooked into the pressure valve on the fuel rail allowing fuel to go through, then I am betting it is the fuel pressure regulator. To get to that, you have to take the throttle body off and take the plastic plenum that covers the injector packs. On the back of the mount where your six pack of injectors are sits the pressure regulator. If it is faulty then it is dumping fuel instead of holding the pressure like it should.
Get a Chilton or Clymer manual and it shows you in pretty good detail how to fix it. I've done it to my 98 S10 with the same engine.

If you unhooked the fuel line so you are losing pressure from the line back to the pump then I would say your pump is letting fuel back to the tank when it shuts off. My money is on the first possibility though.

Good luck

Your ECU is what acctivates your fuel pump realy. Put the key on the run possition and pull the ecu fuse for a few seconds and reinstall it ans it should accivate your realy for 5 seconds, Good luck.

Car starts cuts


Is the engine warning light on in the dash? Need to check the codes. There is a way to do it without an analyser using the ignition switch. Varies from car to car so ask a technician.

Dash lights and accessories are on with key off


The dash lights work independent from the key switch being on. Your headlights and emergency lights, brake lights should all work without the key being in the ignition

Electrical problems


Same thing is happening right now on a 2002 Monte Carlo. When the key is simply turned to ON, all of the lights on the dash starts blinking rapidly. When I attempt to turn the car over, there is no CLICK or anything from the engine - nada. Ignition turns and the dash goes dark, as if it wants to TRY to start - but nothing happens.
But, when I press the brake pedal (and the key is just sitting in the ON position), all of the blinking lights stops flashing and just stay lit. Therefore, I changed the brake switch, thinking it might make a huge difference. Didn't really help at all. When the key is turned, you can hear the fuel pump engage and everything seems to be ready to go. But, the car won't start (it will only start when it feels like it)...hit and miss, pretty much.
Does anyone know the TRUE solution to this issue? Does the ignition need to be replaced in order to get this car to crank over

I have brakes, but my brake lights don't work. I changed the brake light switch and the brake lights still don't work, I also have a brake switch relay. Could that be the problem, and where does it...


does the high mounted stop light work? if so, the turn signal switch may be bad. the brake light signal runs through the brake light switch, there was a recall 08V231000 for some of these models, call the dealer and have them check if there is an OPEN RECALL on your truck. . as for the hard starting, check fuel pressure , if its not at least 60psi, it needs a new fuel pump and filter.

1995 ford windstar will not shift out of park


Check your brake lights to see if they work. The shift interlock works off of the brake light circuit. If the brake lights don't work it could be the brake light fuse, the brake pedal switch. Check fuses #21 and #27 in the fuse panel under the dash.

If the fuses are good and the brake lights work, then the shift interlock solenoid has a problem.
A work-around for this is to turn the key toward the "On" position just enough to unlock the steering wheel, but not far enough to light up the lights in the dash. Then shift the shifter into neutral to start. This will get you to a shop without towing.

My car wont start. It acts like its trying to the dash lights and head lights come on and it sounds like it wants to but then when i let the key go.. Nothing.. PLEASE HELP


i would check the spark plugs, or check to see if your car is getting fuel. your fuel pump might be bad or your fuel pressure regulator. these are just things to check. i cant properly diagnose without looking at the car. hope this helps you out :)

Not getting fuel


Without starting the engine turn the ignition key to the on position in a quiet area. If you here the fuel pump running for 5 seconds the engines oil pressure switches third wire is activating the pump. If not heard replace the oil sending switch

It will not start and it is acting like it is no getting any gas


When turning the key to the ON position without starting the engine, you should hear the fuel pump running for 5 seconds. If heard the oil pressure switch is doing its job operating the circuit to the pump. If not heard the oil switch is at fault. Upon starting the engine the oil switch has a 3rd wire running to the fuel pump. When the engine fires and oil pressure is achieved, the computer shuts off the oil switch and tuns on the fuel pump relay. If the pump runs with the key on replace the relay. You say it will not start at all so probably the oil sending unit or switch we'll cal it is at fault

check all fuses for turn signal and brake lights.change fuel filter . first. do a little tune up change spark plugs and wires . if changing fuel filter dont help. have fuel pressure check first before buying a new fuel pump .they run after taxes 400.00 dollars. your fuel pressure should be 41 to 47 psi. replace fuel pump relay also.
