Stalling when coming to a stop - now warning lights showing & won't stay off!

Please help! Had engine bearings replaced along w/new battery about a year ago. Car then began stalling when coming to a stop IF the A/C was on - have since had it to shop additional 4 times, to check for vacuum leaks or possible cause - no engine codes (Engine Light on, along with ABS light - both of which have remained on since car was purchased from original owner 3 yrs ago - have 'em cleared, they come back within matter of days.) replaced battery AGAIN - same issue, only began stalling even with A/C off! Back to shop for new alternator (still no codes) within 2 miles, stalling issue present again - and even after lights cleared, they came back, w/friends, ABS light, Battery Light & NOW "GASCAP" warning - however has been checked NO issue w/gascap & other lights won't stay off...cleaned Idle Throttle Bottle, seemed to slightly improve rough idling & doesn't stall as FREQUENTLY (as long as A/C is off) but still happening & now w/these new warning lights & still no codes....please help, I cant keep throwing $ at this & am worried about taking the kids in this car!

    ***Should add after battery & alternator replacement, ALL of the lights on the DVD/Multi-Disc changer (which I NEVER use) run & stay on - even for few min after key is removed from ignition ?

What are you using to read the codes? When a light comes on it will set a code or put the codes in the history code file. If any light comes on, then goes off after you turn it off then back on, it goes to history. And if this is happening, you have a bad ground wire somewhere. Check the battery to engine, battery to body and engine to body to start with. Any missing add new ones. Then you will have a few other grounds on the engine or transmission depending one year make and model. Just a note.. The engine to body ground is usually the first to break. It could be a wire or cable.

    oops gas cap

  • Anonymous Mar 27, 2015

    Wish I had that answer alas I only know my mechanic attempted to read codes & Nada - he has since recommended I bring it to shop that specializes in auto computers (that's not in his area of expertise) which I guess is what I must do on Monday but given the issues others have with the 06 Pacifica's I am most concerned about throwing more $$ (over 3200 in so far - had I only known I would've traded it in!!) I will suggest checking the ground wire as you have advised & pray that's all it is - thank you SO much for your prompt reply its truly appreciated.... From a single mama who has spent too many 4 ams trying to research!!

My truck turns off when i get to a stop light


The battery light comes on because the engine is stalling. Fix the engine problem and the battery light will stay off. Vacuum leaks are common problems on very old vehicles like this. Check for vacuum hoses for cracks and splits and replace the damaged ones.

Bentley continental GT engine stops all power turns off (even hazard warning) key won't come out of ignition


need to check the charging system..when a car sits for a long time the battery should be disconnected or compl,etely removed..sounds like operating voltage is too low check the alternator for stuck brushes or malfunctioning regulator..should show around 14.5 -16 volts..

Help! Alternator warning light is on? I would like to seek some helpful advise with regards to the Alternator warning light when the ignition is initially switched on and go out when the engine is...


I can't say 100%, but as far as I know, there are a number of lights that come on when starting a car. The alternator light is one of them. Is it possible that you never noticed it before? On my car, the check engine light comes on, the engine trouble light comes on, the seat belt light comes on, the air bag light comes on, the abs brakes light comes on and there are probably others.
I think what you are seeing is normal.
Do you have any problems? Is the battery dying? Is the car stalling? If not, you are probably OK.

Enhanced Traction System Warning Light (TRAC OFF)


i have the same problem, dealer says its the trac sensor on one of the front hubs . to fix the problem you have to replace the wheel bearing assembly. you cant buy just the sensor, dealer wants 400.00 do it yourself for 100.00 or less shop for parts on line or cover the light with black tape it will not hurt anything
