Question about 2006 Hummer H3
My 06 H3 sometimes fails to start. You can leave it for five or ten minutes and it cranks right up. I have no clue and neither does the dealer.This is incredibly frustrating.
If you look in the owner's manual it will explain this. Happened to me a bunch of times, really embarassing. It is an additional anti-theft device . If the computer senses that the key is inserted improperly, or that it is not a perfect match for the code it has in its memory for your key, it shuts of the gas supply to your engine for approx. 10 minutes to defer theft. Still happens to me intermittently. Now only very rarely. Total pain. I cleaned my key..carefully, with WD40 and after drying put just a touch of graphite on the key and started the beast a number of times. My dealer didn't read the manual either. You must wait the full ten minutes before trying to restart....otherwise it never totally resets and (the first time this happened to me) you can sit there and fight it forever.
I don't have my owner'smanual handy to refer you directly to the proper pages, but its in there under theft deterent. Hope this helps......and that Hummer can provide aneasy fix for this.
