SOURCE: Non vat key starts but shuts down, after three tries, will not start at all. Must sit for hours before restart.

I'm assuming that the vehicle has an immobiliser system standard, and that the key has a chip in the head of it. The key itself could be intermittently faulty, or the pickup ring at the ignition barrel. The best option would be to get a new key cut and coded to the vehicle, and just try it. If the fault reoccurs, it's likely that it will be the pickup ring, but it probably needs further diagnosis at that point.

Check and see how much your alternate is putting out. Make sure that your battery cables are clean. Check the water in the battery. It sounds more like a connection problem than stater.

SOURCE: 2001 PT cruiser overheating.

Note that you will not damage anything unless you don't turn it off when it gets too hot.

So start the car and let is idle to get warm - have the hood open and see if the fans come on. If the temp goes past normal and fans do not kick on, it's usually the fan relay (~$20) - these usually sit in the engine compartment fuse box. Also check the fan fuses - there should be two of them. If that doesn't work, then it would be the temp sensor.

However if your heater is blowing cold when the car is warm, sounds like there is an air-lock. This happens if you don't 'burp' the cooling system properly after flushing the system. Easiest way to check on this is if either the lower or upper radiator hose is not hot when the engine is hot.

Incidentally, if the thermostat is shot, you would not be able to 'burp' the system properly.

My bet is either the thermostat or airlock - or both.

unless you have had recent engine work done, this symptom indicates a slipped timing belt/chain. To verify, you would need to remove the engine timing cover and check the timing marks on the camshaft sprocket. It is about a day's labor to replace the timing chain. If you would like instructions or have more questions, please let me know.

Even with a fully charged battery i need to use a battery pack to start the van when it does start the cooling van comes on for a minute then goes off and that continues


Check rear AC in van and turn it off. Most vans have dual AC. Even if the front AC is off, the rear is still usually on and some vehicles have the cooling fan and condenser fan run together to help with cooling. Check relay and fuse also.

2010 Honda Odessey Handicap Van won't start after sitting for a couple of days. Have a new battery bewst from Sears. Mileage iiiis @ 7K miles. and we don't use the van to often.


Not clear what is happening but you say it does not run a lot of miles. I do know even with a new battery the van must run every once in a while to keep the battery charged up. Batteries run down just sitting and has to run at least a number of miles to charge up. I suggest you purchase a little battery charger that you can leave hooked up to the battery all the time and when you want to use the van just pull the plug out of your extension cord. Then plug it back in when you are back home. That way you know the battery is charged fresh all the time. You might want to have the battery checked for power just to make sure the battery is operating properly. Any place that sells batteries should do this for free.

Does the van have to have a EATX shutdown relay?


If you mean the electronically controlled transmission which I assume you do, the answer is no such relay..

1994 Ford Ranger 4.0 cranks runs about 1 to 1 1/2 minute and cuts off.


There are 2 relays in the relay box that could cause this problem the EEC relay and the FUEL pump relay the best test for EEC relay back probe the throttle position sensor for the 5 volts reference signal run engine and watch to see if you lose this voltage. and fuel pump relay install a fuel pressure gauge to fuel rail service port and check to see if pressure drops to zero.

EATX Shutdown Relay


Replace the fuse housing! This should fix the problem, or it may also be a ground issue. I would check for a ground fault first.
Good luck.

Any chance the check engine light is on ?
My first thoughts are fuel pump, ignition module or coil. It may be tough to find if you can't duplicate the problem in a repair shop. Someone may have to take tools and equipment on the drive and troubleshoot it when it happens.
When it happens, will it sit and idle or does it shut down ?
