Check the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight. Check that the earth wire from the battery is connected to a good clean earth point and is tight. Check that the battery leads are not corroded and ready to break at a terminal

SOURCE: While at idle, SOMETIMES my car jerks and feels like it will shut off.

I had that problem with another one of my vehicles. It ended up being the fuel pump. The problem was that I let the fuel level in my vehicle get to low, and that the fuel filter inside the pump had gotten debri from the bottom of the tank stuck in it and it was starving the vehicle for fuel. Eventually my vehicle wouldn't start. I had a tow truck driver tell me what the problem was. He banged the side of the fuel pump real hard and the vehicle started right up. I eventually had to replace the fuel pump.
Hope this helps.

Seems to be having problems with the alternator. Alternator itself can be bad, but also the voltage regulator, which sits inside the PCM (powertrain control module).
Don´t continue using with battery voltage around the 10V, because it will ruin your battery as well. Completely charge the battery with an external battery charger and let the alternator be checked out first.

I have a 1997 grand prix with a 3.8L engine in it my problem is i can be driving down the highway just find and then my lights start to go dim and then the car shuts off and won't start for 15 minutes....


The problem might be your Vats security system. This causes the car to either "not start" or "shut down" while running, or start for 5 seconds and then die. (depending on the system) If the security light flashes, i guarantee that this is what the problem is. 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 shuting down while running, im sorry i have no quick fix...

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.

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. For a list of cars effected by this problem. See the NEWROCKIES link on the right side of their page......... 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.

----- With this fix, you can take that whole Vats, passlock, passkey **** system out of your car all together. Good info on both sites

My 99 mercury cougar is a 2.5 v6 (Problem) it sputters all the dash lights go off and the power steering dosen't work and the motor dies after it runs for a few minutes. the car will start after it sits...


Sounds like a fuel problem. The electronics shutting down are the result of the dying power. Start by changing the fuel filter. If that doesn't work; I'd look into the fuel pump.
