    When I tried to back the Chevy G 20 1988 van the other day ,it would not hardly back up. Goes forward just fine. Could it be a vaccum hose or modular or what can I do to fix it that won't cost a lot? My husband has Stage 4 cancer and we need our van to go places. Thanks, Pat

Just bought a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire. Drove it a few times and then the starter went. Replaced the starter and solenoid unit and drove it a few times then it would not start again. Replaced the starter again...

Your going down the wrong road-- logically thinking
Find out what controls the voltage to the starter solenoid
Like the ignition switch being worn out,neutral sw,brake sw
whatever is in the starting circiut
To try & answer questions on this site, i feel like I'm
talking to people back in the 1970's
Today you need wiring diagrams,a volt meter,pencil
& paper & all the reference material before walking
to the car
Point being-- you can't fix or figure out what you don't know,
learn the system FIRST & then approach the car with your
road map,so you can test,test,test
No way to resolve any vehicle issue installing parts
Going forward you should spend 80% of your time thinking
& testing & only 20% working hard,that goes for anything in life
I never had a champion problem, but your parts store can test
the starters & alternators & such for free

My 1996 Acura 3.2 tl has a hard time moving, it won't roll in neutral and it takes a lot of gas to go forward and in reverse and then it stops itself really hard. What's going on?

brakes locked up did you use your emergency brake if so then you need to take your rear tires of and unlock your back brakes

If it is an automatic transmission, first check the fluid level. If it is low, fill it up and try it again. If the level is fine, then there is a bigger issue and you should seek a professional's help.

Hi, I tried starting my Chevy Impala 05 today and it won't start. My car was not locked from the previous day I drove it to the city. But today I opened my car and my alarm goes off and won't...

put the fuse back in and try this,, when the alarm goes off, try holding down the Lock and unlock buttons at the same time, that should reset your alarm

1990 Cadillac Allante - Tried starting car, and nothing. When this happened before, dealer told me to turn key forward for an amount of time, then turn it back, then forward again. Can't remember how...

They probably told you to turn the key forward to the RUN position and wait 10 minutes until the SECURITY light goes out on your dash. If your vehicle continues to do this, it is most likely caused by a defective ignition tumbler. It is having a hard time recognizing your key and will not allow the engine to start. If you can get it running again, I would recommend getting the ignition lock cylinder replaced.
