Question about 2006 Chevrolet Equinox

1 Answer

We purchased a 2006 equinox that was in a rollover accident to rebuild it. Someone I think removed a remote starter/car alarm. Can't seem to get the key to start the engine. We have taken a hot wire and started it by applying it to the starting wire to the selenoid switch, but the vehicle only runs for a couple seconds. I also think there was no power to the coil pack.(Had to supply power to that also.) Is there some kind of reset switch to push to restore the power from the ignition or fuel pump or selenoid? The remote looks like it was merely tied onto the wiring harness and the previous owners cut it out leaving the original wires intact.

It may still be the alarm. Turning it off does not keep it from interfering when its bad. The alarm may need to be completely removed and any wires that were cut on the vehicle need to be hooked back up as there were before the alarm was installed.
At least doing this eleminates a good posibilty

My ex husband was in a roll over car accident in his 2006 ford fusion going 70 mph and his air bags didnt deploy. is there a recall on those or does he have a possible case for his injuries?


Front air bags are not designed to deploy in side impact, rear impact or rollover crashes.There are several reasons why your air bag may not have deployed during a crash. The first reason is that perhaps your crash is not the type of accident where air bag deployment would be helpful. For frontal air bags, this includes many, but not all, side impacts, rear impacts and rollovers. This category also includes minor accidents in which the driver and front passenger (if there was one) did not suffer any significant injuries requiring medical treatment. Many people do not realize there are a lot of side air bags that do not deploy during a rollover accident, even when the vehicle rolls onto its side. That is because those side air bags do not include an appropriate crash sensor that can detect rollover crashes.

I had the same problem on an 08 Equinox. After jumping the battery, recharging, checking all fuses and swaping some of them, I returned to it and it started like if nothing had been wrong. Then I realized that I used a different Key and remote.
I remote locked it and used the first remote and key again and the problem came back. I went back and forth a couple of times and recreated the problem. PROBLEM was my regular key lost its program. I reprogrammed the remote and key and lived happily ever after. good luck.

Can i add a 3rd row seat to my chevy equinox 2006 it didnt come with one so i was hopin possibly be able to add another one. not sure if they were made like that


It is probably not the best idea to do so. Unless you can ensure that the 3rd seat is fully bolted down, it will create a safety issue. This is mainly because in a rollover accident, the 3rd seat is not secure and will cause severe injury or death if it "pops" loose and is rolling around in the vehicle. You might want to check with IIHS to see if they have any governmental recommendations for this issue.

I need an instruction manual on how to operate a remote car starter. I have just bought a 2006 Chev Equinox with one already installed. I would like the advantages and disadvantages.Theft info,etc! Thanx...


i do not believe the equinox has a remote starter from factory so i am to assume someone had one installed. most directed electronics type alarms simply require you to press the AUX button twice to begin the remote start sequence. if this is not a Directed product then what button you press and how many times you press it may vary.

2006 Chevy Equinox


Hiya...the factory-installed keyless remote control are installed in most Equinoxes IF SO equipped with this option that year.
However, it's difficult to get "true factory-installed" keyless feature in your Equinox ....but new 2008-2009 Equinoxes built this year now comes with standard keyless remote and yes, new option is remote STARTER feature (that option is identified by a black wire found inside the rear-right quarter window with thin metal line surrounding that interior window to receive signal from remote starter fob)

At least you can find after-market keyless remote control at your local retail store.
