Have the body control module checked with a scanner, I think it may be failing.

SOURCE: Car shuts down while driving

It is very likely the part that is giving you the problem is a Crankshaft Position Sensor, they go open circuit when they get hot, then after it cools it becomes a good circuit again, this is very frustrating, had the same issue with my Buick a few years ago, replaced the coils and the ignition module at a cost of hundreds, DID NOT CHANGE A THING, the crank sensor fixed the problem and was $30.00 from Buick.

I have a 1997 buick regal gs 3.8 supercharge
the car would not start some days and it would quit while running. the instrument guage lights would come on and when i turn on the turn signal the guages would go crazy and the buzzer would sound. I replaced the ingition switch for 102.00 from auto zone and that fixed the problem

My 1998 ford explorer driver side power window will not roll back up! :-(

From your description it sounds like the motor is drawing too many amps and a circuit breaker is opening (to protect the motor). That could be from one of two things: a failing motor or a bad set of gears or some other hindrance that is causing the motor to work too hard. Auto circuit breakers generally reset themselves after everything cools down. Since it happened on more than one window it could also be that the circuit breakers are getting old and less reliable meaning that they will continue to fail more often. The symptoms do not suggest a broken wire

Slug the temperamental little beast in the nose, have the fuel pressure checked, try a tune-up with new sparkplugs and wires, new air filter, fuel filter, and PCV valve. If still no help, and no diagnostic trouble codes come up in an engine scan, have the ignition system analyzed.

the running issue seems to be the convertor clogging up. need to have backpressure test done to see for sure. the electrical issue sounds like the ignition switch or the orange ,pink,or yellow wire going to the switch. both are common problems with the trailblazer.NOTE if the vehicle has less than 80000 miles the convertor will still be under factory warranty (EPA guidelines)

Window on drivers side wont go up or down but passenger side works on 2002 gmc sonoma

A couple of things that can happen. The switch is bad or the motor regulator is bad. Either way the best way to check is to open the door up and disconnect the motor and ground one terminal and supply battery voltage to the other. You might want to use a fused wire to do this just in case the window motor is shorted out. You can reverse the ground and positive and the window will operate in the other direction. if the window moves the porblem is either the switch or you have no power to the switch.
