    What you will want to try is to turn the key to the off position, disconnect both negative and positive battery cables.

    Once both are disconnected at the battery, touch the two cable together for 30 seconds. This will drain all module capacitors in the system and cause them to reset.

    Reconnect the positive cable first, then the negative, turn the key to the run position and you should see the instrument panel lights come, rotate the key to the start position. This should take care of the problem.

    Let me know.

When filling the tank, stop filling when the pump clicks off. It sounds like you are overfilling the tank getting gas onto the built in evaporator.

Just stop filing when pump clicks off.

I have a 95 Ford Mustang. Yesterday I drove 20 miles and stopped at a gas station. I got gas and when i was done filling up i went back in my car and went to start it and it would not start. i had no power...

A big issue with older cars is battery cable corrosion. Start by checking the battery terminals for white or green fuzzy stuff. That is corrosion. You'll need to remove the cables and clean the ends with a wire brush. You'll also want to look at the copper inside the cable. If it has turned green and has corrosion in it, you'll want to replace the cable. I fixed my sisters Escort with this same issue by following the positive cable to it's first splice and I found corrosion there. I cleaned it all out and the car has been fine since.

2005 Colorado drivers side window and remote locking system

Just figured it out and replicated it 3 times..

any type of power/voltage change seems to trigger this issue

The most common symptom is power locks fail and only the driver window quits, however that is on the extended cab.

Steps to fix and it works every time.

take door panel off driver's door
Disconnect the wiring attached to window and power lock control unit
disconnect battery cables
connect the negative to the positive cable(((NO BATTERY CONNECTED)))
This will act to short residual voltage in the system

5 minutes later
place the key in the ignition and turn to the run position
connect the wiring to the window/lock controller
connect the negative cable to the battery
then the positive
open drivers side door
turn key to the off position((do not remove yet)) you should get a series of dings through speakers telling you the key is still in the ignition
once it begins dinging pull the key out and you should hear the door lock solenoids trigger and the windows should work.

Some power but won't start without jumping

the battery is bad. the plates are warped or sulfated.
