A P1609 code is an "Immobilizer Malfunction." Put your key in the ignition turn it to the "on" position (don't start it). *if the light with the car with the key on it is solid - the key is recognized by the computer. **if it is flashing the computer doesn't recognize the key. The immobilizer will not let the car start if the immobilizer light flashes on the dash when the key is in the on position. The car will need to have the key coded to the computer by an automotive locksmith or you will have to spend a lot more at the dealer.

Computer reset for starters
Second alternator is failing get tested
Third fuel filter and pump
These are the norms for routine maintenance with battery change
Since battery died we know it wasnt getting voltage on the road
Or it was getting it intermitently
The alternator can pass tests intermitently
When checked
The best old fasioned way of testing alternator run vehicle disconnect from battery positve side
Let run if power drop or car stops alternator needs replaced
Battery is only good for starting a vehicle
All other power like accessories comes from a transformer in vehicle that stores voltage
Youll see in car a second bar with ground and power going to it this is your transformer do not jump accross transformer
Other then mentioned above routine maintenance is needed

SOURCE: fuel system shutdown

Check for an impact shutdown switch- this is to stop fuel pumping in case of an accident. Switch is probably in or around the access door on the left rear interior. I've seen this problem in a lot of vehicles, havent had the prroblem with my Sedona.\, so I don't know exact switch locatioin. If your vehicle is high milage, it could also be fuel pump failure. Check all fuses too, include the block under the hood on the left side.

SOURCE: 2002 Kia Sportage will not start.

p0560 is system voltage problem. open or short between the battery positive and the ecm.CHECK ALL FUSES. dosnt matter what they are labeled under dash and under hood replace any that are bad and retry to start. no start then check voltage to ecm grounds to. i dont have a wireing diagram to give you but for a small fee or free the dealer can make you a copy.make sure all the wires that go to battery terminals are not corroded and are making good contact [verified with volt meter]. if after all checks ok then replace ecm. as a side note i havent had to change one ever.

Possible fuel pump failure. Gasoline is used to cool and lubricate the in tank fuel pump. Running a vehicle out of fuel is not good for the pump. Try banging on the tank with your fist while someone cranks the vehicle over. If the vehicle starts or tries to start, suspect a fuel pump problem

I am having a no start no crank problem with my 2000 ford expedition. Battery is fine, starter is fine changed the solenoid that did not work and changed the wire from the starter to the solenoid. Still...


I am experiencing the same issue with my 2001 expeditiion. Just curious... after the vehicle has been running hot for a while and you park and shut the motor, then it won't restart? Unless I wait for approx 1/2 hour when motor has cooled then it starts up. I have had mechanics check the fuel line and the fuel seems to "vapor lock". The fuel pump may need repaired/replaced. I am not experiencing and electrical issue. This is a fuel intake issue.

1997 chevy s-10 wont start


An intermittent problem like this are a bear to solve but i can tell you that our company truck that has a 4.3l in it [i assume yours does to] has done the same thing three times over the 7 years we've had it and it always ends up being the fuel pump.There is the odd chance that you've put too much fuel in the intake and flooded it,the only way it will go after being flooded is to change the sparkplugs[not sure why this happens but it happens on all fuel injected cars].
