Ours only flashes for 1 reasons, it means the system is FUBAR

so bad you are burning up the CAT (its in the opr, guide)

so scan it...

why not state country.....????? here in USA we have OBD2 technology,, others, not till 2001,2006, or 2010... so? worlds a big place. no?

For sure your PCM is P\'\'$$ed off. huh?

our scan tool for 3.6 has Bxxx Pxxxx and Uxxxxx DTC codes.

we use a scan tool

is the chain screaming at you?????

but no matter.

the lamp glows for stored errors, called DTCs

the FSM covers this....

See TSBs on 3.6, bad chains?

Its a half baked, 3.6 GM engine in that XL7,

with an engine like that , youd be smart to own the FSM.

why work blind with any car with and engine like that.

read here.

and this, part, is a shock, (its a GM license Japanese engine)

note how SUZ has bad chains... in 2007 (my guess, china chains gone wrong, surely not Japanese RK chains, no way..... at all...... ISO 9000 chains are good.


Although the architecture for this engine begins with a General Motors North Star design, the N36A has

been redesigned from the cylinder heads on up by Suzuki engineers for application in XL7. The entire

engine is manufactured in Japan, including casting of the cylinder block. The engines are then shipped to

CAMI for installation in XL7. (USA MARKET and CANADA)

This engine is unique to XL7 and is not shared with any General Motors

products that are assembled at CAMI.

Key features to will be covered in detail in this reference book include:

• Engine mechanical configuration

• Camshaft timing

• THROTTLE ACTUATOR CONTROL system (drive by wire)

• Variable valve timing (VVT) for intake and exhaust valves

SOURCE: White Smoke From Tail Pipe/Exhaust

It often means that you are burning antifreeze. You asked if it needs antifreeze, have you noticed any leaking out of the reservoir tank while you are running it? Sometimes when the head gasket goes it will produce a passage for the antifreeze to pass from the capillaries into the combustion chamber. It is easy to check if you have an air compressor. Remove one of the rear sparkplugs and the radiator cap. Fill the radiator and then push some air into the sparkplug hole (get a good seal in case a valve is open). Repeat with all the cylinders and watch for air bubbles coming up into the radiator. If bubbles come up or fluid is pumped out, the head gasket is blown and must be replaced. It is more likely to happen at the back of the engine because it is farthest away from the fan and therefore gets less cooling. Also check your oil for discoloration. If it is a brownish color it could mean your oil and antifreeze are mixing and has the potential to damage your bearings

SOURCE: air bag light is on and the clock is flashing what

You have probably had your battery removed? Clock you can fix by setting the time. The airbag warning light indicates that ther's a problem with your airbag. Check if the co-drivers airbag is turned on. If the light is still on, take it to the shop to be checked.

Need to fill coolant reservoir every day with antifreeze, check engine light on & flashing

The flashing light means there is a problem with the engine serious enough to damage the catalytic converter. You should get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
If there are no external coolant leaks, the engine is probably burning the coolant thru the cylinders and out the tail pipe. Which could also be causing the flashing light.

Check engine light flashing in 2006 chevy hhr

If it is running rough & no check engine light on then the first thing I would to is tune it up. If you have a check engine light then pay someone to diagnosis it & go from there. Usually when the light comes on there is a more promenient issue; that is WHY the light continues to flash.

1995 F350 We pulled a trailer today and after we got a little down the road the ABS light started flashing. When we stopped for gas we could not get the shifter out of park without pulling the #18 fuse....

Well, it could mean that the emergency brake has not been fully released.The ABS system light is on if something has occurred within the ABS system. Something faulty may have happened there, get it checked out!

My 2007 silverado was fine when i parked it last it wont start..plenty of battery and lights..but no ignition..and the steering wheel is not locked when in will not start in park, or...

The steering wheel will not "lock" until you turn it about 45 degrees from center...this is normal. If your security light is flashing, there is a problem with your security system that is keeping you from starting the engine. Try this: Set the parking brake. Turn the ignition to the "RUN" position and wait about 10 minutes for the security light to stop flashing. When the light stops flashing, crank the engine without turning the key to the off position. If it starts, take the vehicle to get the security system checked. If it doesn't start, tow it. You probably need a new PassKey sensor.
