Question about 2006 Hummer H3

2006 Hummer H3 fails to start periodically

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.

2006 H3 engine will not start periodically


It might be the Starter Safety Switch which prevents the car from starting while in gear. Try jiggling the shifter while in Park, or put it in Neutral and try it.

06 hummer displays a padlock and will not start with key


Your security system has locked u out, do a pass key reset, if this does not work then u will need the dealer to test the system for a failed part.

PASSKEY LOCKOUT RESET GM (yes it is GM) CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
