Have to unhook battery for 2002 monte carlo to start

I have a 2002 Monte Carlo. The problem first started when my locks would randomly unlock then lock while driving down the road. A few months later the radio started locking up when i would start it. Gradually the lights on my dash stopped working, and my reverse lights would turn on and off while i was driving down the road. Now when i shut the car off i have to unhook the battery then hook it back up in order for it to start. Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 times for it to start. When it starts everything is reset. The radio works, the locks dont go crazy, and there is no beeping at all. PLEASE HELP i am stressing out about this problem!!

Sounds like you have a bad ground. There should be a motor ground on the back of the motor anas well as the battery ground. The battery going dead could be caused by this or a bad regulator in the altenator unplug the altenator to check this for the starting problem

Hello: To resynchronize the keyless entry close all doors, key out of ignition. Hold lock and unlock buttons till the doors (all) lock then unlock. If the transmitter still doesn't work you have other problems. Go to auto zone they can check your transmitter to see if it is working.

2002 monte carlo fuel gauge doesnt work,pump works ok.


It is likely the fuel level sending unit. I had a customer with an 03 Monte Carlo that the pump went out and the fuel gauge hadn't worked in about a year. We replaced the fuel pump module and it took care of both problems. I believe the sending unit is available separately from the complete module.

Car Chimes in 2002 Chevrolet Monte Carlo saying trunk open when it's not can it be turned off?


I would check around the area on the trunk for a switch and bypass it rather than unhook it but be careful dome light switch is there too. You can just follow the sound and unplug the chime tho
