I've had that happen before where my left turn signal would almost kill the motor. Check your alternator or have it checked at an auto stor most will do it for free. Your alternator might not be putting out enough juice to run the motor and electronics at the same time. Seems a little extreme but that's what mine turned out to be.

The car start, run ,and you can turn it off it take about 30min. Before it start back up.

Consider replacing the crankshaft positioning sensor. A crank sensor is an electronic device used in an internal combustion engine to monitor the position or rotational speed of the crankshaft. This information is used by engine management systems to control ignition system timing and other engine parameters.
The simplest and most obvious symptom of a failing crankshaft position sensor is the blinking "check engine" light in your car.
According to Do It "When the crankshaft position sensor begins to fail, the signal it transmits to the vehicle's computer begins to weaken. If left unattended, the signal will switch off completely. This, in turn, causes the car's spark plugs to die out, killing the engine. If you are having problems starting your car, it could indicate bad crankshaft position sensor".

Of course this may NOT be YOUR problem, but it sounds like it could be, doesn't it?

I installed a fuel pump kill switch in a2002 tahoe it worked severaltimes however when i moved it around the connection in back of kill switch was loose so I went to store and got more connectors they...

Why would you want a kill switch ? The PCM supply's B+ voltage to energize a relay that turns on the fuel pump. When the key is first turned to on the PCM - engine computer will energize fuel pump relay for two seconds to prime the system . It won't turn it on again untill you crank the engine . ( Turn key to start ) An that is only if it sees a RPM signal from the crank sensor .

1988 chevy s 10 2.8l v6 it starts right up and runs like it should but dies as soon as you turn on the headlights or turn on the fan for the vent or ac

I would start by checking voltage output from alternator. with car off at battery voltage should be at least 12.6 volts. with car running, at battery there should be at least 14.2-14.7 volts. sounds like to much voltage is killing engine when turning on other things. if not enough voltage, it will send a low signal to pcm. therefore shutting down engine. check the voltage! GOOD-DAY!

Sometimes when I put the turn signal on either left or right (doesn't matter) the car shuts off. Doesn't matter if I am driving down the road or sitting still. Just barely hitting the turn signal switch...

From what I've been told, the late 90s and up GM cars have the main steering column wiring harness bundled. It runs down the steering column, into the engine bay, and under the battery. Take a look at the area around the battery to see if it is leaking. If the battery is leaking, the fluid is both corrosive and conductive. If it leaks onto the harness, it may have eaten the wire jacketing on the harness wires. In that harness will be the wires for both your turn signals and your ignition switch. If they're shorted together, when you activate the turn signals, you may be killing the ignition.

Killing problem on 1999 bonneville

well it seems to be an transmission problem. when you have it under load(in gear) there seems to be resistance that stalls the motor. the engine speed sensor sends a signal to the ecm(engine control module) this in turn sends a signal to the trans control module. from there the signal goes to a solenoid inside the trans the shifts the gears. somewhere in that circuit is the problem. you need to take it to a shop and have a scan done, this will isolate the problem. please rate this ..thanks
