Iam thinking aloud here but maybe the problem lies with the key or the transponder reader behind the cowling on the ignition lock ,maybe a loose wire in a multiplug connection

SOURCE: 1999 Grand Voyager transmission not shifting into high gear

Do yourself a favor & get it scanned at transmission shop, or dealer & fixed as needed,(within reason) . Delaying it could cost lots of money. A rebuilt is about $1500-$2000.

SOURCE: When driving the olds Intrigue and the engine will

It's when the security light starts flashing that the infamous "chip" in the key becomes a nightmare to many.
Gradually the car begins not cranking anymore or if it cranks it would start and die in a second. Randomly it will
do this more and more often until it won't start anymore. VATS, PASSkey and Passlock immobilizer systems are
killing cars all over North America, they have a short lifespan and are certainly more effective against owners
than thieves. Here is how you save your car
1st trick, (if not starting) turn the key forward 2 clicks till right before it would normally start, leave like
that for 10 minutes. ( no less ) After 10 minutes, turn key back then forward and your car might start. I did this
in my regal for more than a year. If its shutting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix... If anything
on this page helps you, please remember to comment or give me a thumbs up on the myfixya sight so i can have a
better rating to help more people on this. Thanks

Cheap fix: Bypass the chip in your key. Temporary, but effective. Until the TDM (theft deterrent module) in the
dash poops out, then you're kinda screwed. I was told that these types of key security systems have a 7-10 year
life span. Sucks for us. This link explains the "Key Issue" pretty well.
----- http://vats.likeabigdog.com/


Never worry again fix: Bypass the whole VATS/Passlock/passkey I or passkey II system entirely. Literally take it
out, and throw it away. I just did this in my Regal. Took about an hour. Took longer to find the thing than it did
to fix the problem. They sell a unit for 200 bucks to totally bypass this system FOREVER. life time-money back and
all that. Finally did this in my car. Well worth the 200 if you've looked into getting this replaced... Anywhere
from 600-1000 bucks. If you do buy this, please purchase it thru this link. The cost is the same, but i get credit
for the sale and im trying to earn my money back, as you will be able to do if you buy fron NewRockies and join the
free affiliate program. Thanks
----- http://newrockies.ca?ap_id=judd0081 need it
----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey system out of your car all together. Good info
on both sites.

It works for:
Any GM or Isuzu Vehicle with VATS or PASSKey or PASSLock security systems.
If your car has the chip in the key or in the lock cylinder, then you can save it with this Full Bypass.

Engine shuts off after driving 45 mim when trying to park in reverse.but 15 min before this engine and slippery road icon comes on when road is dry and 95 degrees outside


I think you have Ground problem.
The slippery road light is part of the ABS system. one or more ABS sensors reading is much greater or lower then VSS (speed) sensor.
Same time the engine quit is indication for lose ground.Inspect your ground connection , if you have broken engine mount will pull the wire and kill the engine and ABS system.
Good luck

This is most likely due to a failing antitheft system. Next time this happens, look for a light in the dash somewhere that says "security" or might be a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If you see this light, go to this link for help. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

How to put in four wheel drive


FOUR-WHEEL DRIVE SYSTEM

(a) Four-wheel drive control

Use the four-wheel drive control lever and center

differential lock button to select the following transfer and

center differential modes.

The "H" and "L" position of the four-wheel drive control lever

provides either lock or unlock mode of the center differential

depending on the center differential lock button position.

Use the center differential lock system if your wheels get stuck

in a ditch, or when you are driving on a slippery or bumpy

surface. When the center differential is locked, the vehicle

stability control system is automatically turned off and the

center differential lock and "VSC OFF" indicator lights come on

because the function that controls engine performance

As soon as the center differential lock switch is turned

on, the "VSC OFF" indicator light comes on. After the

wheels are out of the ditch or off the slippery or bumpy

surface, turn the center differential lock switch off.

Make sure the center differential lock indicator light and

vehicle stability control system off indicator light turn

off.

"H" (high speed position, center differential unlocked):

Lever at "H", center differential lock button left out

Use this for normal driving on all types of roads, from dry

hard-surfaced roads to wet, icy or snow-covered roads. This

position gives greater economy, quietest ride, least wear and

better vehicle control.

"H" (high speed position, center differential locked): Lever

at "H", center differential lock button pushed in

Use this for greater traction when you experience a loss of

power, such as wheel slipping, in the center differential unlock

mode.

"N" (neutral position): Lever at "N"

No power is delivered to the wheels. The vehicle must be

stopped.

"L" (low speed position, center differential unlocked):

Lever at "L", center differential lock button left out

Use this for maximum power and traction. Use this for climbing

or descending steep hills, off-road driving, and hard pulling in

sand or mud.

In this mode, the braking feeling that occurs when the wheels

are negotiating a sharp corner is further reduced than in the "L"

(low position, center differential locked) mode.

"L" (low speed position, center differential locked): Lever

at "L", center differential lock button pushed in

Use this for maximum power and traction. Use this for hard

pulling in situations the vehicle cannot negotiate even in the "L"

(low speed position, center differential unlocked) mode. Also,

using this mode when driving down steep off-road inclines will

help contribute to increased vehicle stability.

How do i check the transmission fluid and change it in a 2005 chevy colbalt, and where does the speedometer cable connect into the transmission at?


There is no dipstick on this tranny (4T40E). On the passenger side of the tranny just beside the output axle seal, there is an 11mm 7/16" bolt head. With the vehicle running in park remove the bolt. If tranny fluid runs out it was over filled. On the top Drivers side of tranny, there is a red plastic cap (marked vent). Remove and add fluid here if low. Once the fluid runs out of bolt hole its at correct level. To do tranny fluid and filter change, loosen off all the pan bolts, drain. Filter is located under pan. Do not remove the bolt with engine off, it will lower the tranny fluid level. Fill with approximately 6.5 qts or lts. Start engine, remove bolt, let run out, when it quits its full. This doesn't change all 16qts ( the torque converter and valve body hold 8 or more), if you want complete change, get it flushed at a shop. It doesn't have a speedo cable anymore either. It has VSS's (vehicle speed sensors) in the tranny and also use wheel speed sensors in the ABS system to calculate speed for different systems. ABS, Cluster, Cruise control, Tranny shifting etc.

Uncle put new brake pads on vehicle (he worked on front and back brakes) and now the speedometer doesn't work, the abs light is on, check engine light, and the break light is on. what could have happened ....


Check for disconnected ABS sensors. The front sensors in the front are located next to the axle shafts. The rear sensor is located on the rear differential housing itself on top, in the middle. The ABS is monitored by the computer for performance. The ABS kicks on when the vehicle comes from a certain speed to a dead stop, keeping the wheels from locking up. That could be the reason for the speedometer not working. Or it could be a bad speed sensor. Both can also trigger the check engine light because it is monitored by the computer. The brake light usually comes on due to low fluid level. It can trigger the light, but not be low enough to impact brake performance. I hope this helps.

Sounds like you have a defectine cluthch componant. Best way to verify is get the rear axle off the ground . So as not to let the rear drive wheels make contact with the ground.

Vechile turns off while driving


Does it happen to occur when you maybe hit a bump? It sounds so much like a previous car I worked on he hs so many keys on the ring that when he hit a bump the weight of all the keys pulled on the switch and shut it off the only other way to find this is start the truck and start to shake wiring harnesses under the dash and under the hood it sounds like a loose connection in the primary ignition circuit
