You have a power wire rubbing the chassis somewhere in the harness that when it slightly touches metal the voltage drops and causes the flickering and will make the computer act up. Finding exactly where the short is occurring will be a tedious and time consuming inspection of the wiring.

    I was thinking that or the bcm because the doors will lock and unlock sometimes going down the road. What do you think about the bcm because I know it controls alot of this?

    The BCM is probably being affected by the short too. Look at the wires inside the rubber cover for the doors.Check all the doors because any of them can cause a wire to chafe and short to the body. door

SOURCE: My !995 Cherolet Truck Turbo Diesel will stall

Pick up a copy of Haynes Diesel Engine Repair Manual, Part # 10330, at your local auto parts store. It has an excellent diagnostic section, check page 1-44. It's a must have for a diyer with a diesel motor. It costs about $20.

SOURCE: Chevy Impala stalls while driving

First off I would suspect the fuel filter. You didn't state how long it runs before it stalls but I think it's not more than 10 minutes or so. It could also possibly be the Mass Air Flow sensor, but I really don't think that is it. If it was sputtering then I would check the Exhaust Gas Recirculating valve for clogging - a hands on diagnostic is really the best bet, unless you haven't changed the fuel filter in a while, in which case I would change that just for general measures and improved MPG. I recommend going to your local shop and have them clear the codes from the computer to see if the service light was just a glitch from changing the battery! If it comes back then you'll need to have the computer scanned to see what codes it's throwing out. Hope this helps!!

I have a 01 Taurus I can't figure out why it tries to stall when idling and has no power mostly up hill but I can get it up to speed on level roads


Check engine light on/flashing? If so, possible cylinder misfire. Have codes scanned to point you in the right diagnostic direction

Impossible to diagnose without the trouble codes. Get the codes read and post here. ALWAYS start by reading the trouble codes to get a starting point.

Something in your computer controlled ignition system is shutting down. You need to check for trouble codes. Check for spark on a spark plug wire right after it stalls, or does it start right back up?

Stalls, then engine shuts down...


One thing it could be is the fuel filter. It's about the only thing that won't cause an engine light to come on.

Hi, i have a grand cherokee 5,7 from 2006. The lights in the instrument panel, and the exterior lights keep flashing when the engine in turned on. I cannot adjust the lights in the instument panel neither....


I have a similar problem - every once in a while all of my dash lights flash on like the car is trying to conk out/stall (I have a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee) - the car has no loss of power and runs fine, just all of the dashboard lights and warnings come on like its going to stall. Happens on dry days, wet days, cold days, warm days - at least 3 times a month. trouble is, because its intermittent no one can find the problem.
