Listen TFI module is more than likely the problem change it. TFI module controls spark and timing and fuel. Keep one with you in the car. The module is getting hot and not working right.

SOURCE: 1995 ford escort, alarm keeps going off and car wont start

The alarm brain should not be the easy to locate if stock. Put everything as it was. The alarm brain, control, module or whatever any one wants to call it is most likely behind and under the radio possibly on the floor but in that area. That is if it is OEM if not then it should have been installed under the instrument cluster. I should be a small box probably held with zip-ties and it should have all the information, manufacturer, model and wire functions on the brain. If you think he found the right thing then have him look for the red wire that connects to it. It should have a 15amp fuse on the cable. If its taken out this will disable the alarm. What ever he found should say Security, Alarm or something like that. Not door control or anything other.

INTERMITENT IGNITION PROBLEMS SOME TIMES VEHICLE WONT START,OTHER TIMES IS OK,BEEN TOWED 3 TIMES TO WORKSHOP CAN,T FIND PROBLEM


Need more information on this to diagnose tighter but lets start with the basics. If it is not turning over at all or no clicking sound without accessories coming on then it is an electrical problem. If it is turning over but not starting it is a fuel problem. Post what it is doing specifically. If you are driving and the car all of the sudden dies and wont start but turns over then I would look at the fuel relay.

1995 olds royale 88; fixed fuel pump, starts then shut it off and re start but nothing happens; sat over night, started right up three times in a row but the fourth not a chance; what's wrong?


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, key switch, or a list of other things.

Good guess. It's not hard to access the switch on your car. Follow the steps at the link below. Remove the switch and inspect for heat damage. If there is no obvious damage, test the switch with an ohmmeter. Jiggle the switch while testing.

1995 acura legend wont start


assuming the engine run good and nothing wrong with it, check ignition relay, can get them from junk yard if need to replaced them and will cost you barely nothing. my guess would be your ignition switch, it tend to wear out over time and loose contact. the unit is not cheap to replace and is common to some vehicle over time, some has better luck than others; this part run some where around 340-350 bucks. you can try to take ignition unit apart and jump the wire to see if that the problems. ignitions switch is like a master switch, if it faulty, it will not turn anything on, it seems like the battery is dead or something is disconnected. try this first before you decide to take ignition column apart, the next time it wont start, try to jiggle, wiggle and play with ignition unit with the key is in it, turn they key back and forth, try until the car turn on or start and see if that work. you have to play with it for awhile, if its faulty, it will also be stubborn.

I have a 2006 chevy cobalt and the lock lite is on on the display dash and the car wont start .Also the radio and dash functions wont come on. I live in the bahamas and we dont have access to a chevy...


you will need to do a security relearn.
1.turn key to on position and leave on
2.after 10 minutes the light will flash and go out turn the key on to off 3x then leave on again.
3. do this 3 times for 30 minutes then after 30 minutes your 3rd time and after turning the key 3 times the 4th time start the car. it should start right up.

96 pontiac sunfire wont start.....


Starter solenoid , or wire that leads to it.

Also , if standard transmission , may be the switch on clutch pedal is intermitant.

Engine won't turn over unless it thinks you have your foot on the clutch.

Engine will not crank intermitantly


Crank sensor can translate heat. Not allowing restart after the turbo heat radiates in the area. Try a wad of aluminum foil in front of the crank sensor(on the block behind the turbo) . It protects it from heat and its a cheep test. If this works you can make a better sheild or leave the foil.
