Looks like it lost battery power. Check around the battery for loose or broken connections at both ends of the battery cables. There's one from the battery minus to the engine that could have broken.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: keyless remote wont work, vehicle completely shut down

Hi Russell,

Absolutely no power? No dome light? No head lights? Nothing?
When you step on the brake pedal, no brake lights?

If true, start at the source and pop the hood.

This is going to be a bit of back and forth dialogue. I'll ask some questions and you get me the answers. That way we can get to the root of the problem. To save time, I'll ask multiple questions at a time. Here goes.

  • Check the battery. Is it still there? (Valid question with no evidence of power)
  • Are the terminal clamps tight?
  • Are the terminals clean and free of corrosion?
  • Are all the belts in place and tight? (pay special attention to alternator)
  • If you have a voltmeter. test the voltage at the battery terminals. It should be +12.5VDC.
Try getting a jump, when the cables are attached does anything light up?
Does it turn over and start?
Does it do anything?

Comment me back with your findings
Mike

SOURCE: I have a 1994 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 which when I hit

I have checked different parts stores online and every one shows you should have a "steering damper" on your steering linkage. This damper is basically a shock absorber mounted sideways and attached to your linkage.
See if you have one on your linkage( get down in front of the truck & look up at the linkages). You should replace this if it looks old or worn. It's a simple replacement and costs from $35 - $60 average.
If it doesn't do the trick, replacing this damper is part of the "process of elimination" so don't "cry foul".
My guess is this is part of the problem....Good luck !

SOURCE: 1994 gmc back left tire break leak

Most likely rellted to the rear wheel cylinder. You need to remove the tire, probably replace the brake shoes if they are wet with fluid, wipe down brake drum with carb or brake cleaner, install new wheel cylinder and put everything else back together. Wheel cylinder is available through most auto parts outlets. Probaby less than $15.

Is the battery fully charged? Have the charging system checked for proper voltage/amperage output.

1995 ford explorer literally is like a milkshake if I hit a big pot hole or bumps on freeway roads. Makes me feel unsafe. Suggestions??


Short of a complete rebuild of the entire vehicles
suspension, that would have to be done by yourself,
as it would be too expensive to pay someone,your done

It is way to old to do anything-- to be honest

Get rid of it,too old to work on & invest any money

Yukon will not start with key


Anti theft not recognizing key, possibly worn out. Try spare key if you have one or have a new one cut and recheck.

It might possibly be the ignition switch, or the linkage to it.

They reason I suspect this is your statement, "I bumped the key forward and it will engage the starter but still wont shut off"

The part where you insert the key is really a "cylinder lock", that then transfers the turning motion to the actual "ignition switch"

My wife had a Pontiac (also a GM product) that the cylinder lock had a linkage that went to the ignition switch (similar to a sliding electric switch, with the 4 positions, ACC, OFF, RUN, START), which was bolted on further down the steering column, underneath the plastic covering on the column.

Another person here had a similar problem, and after suggesting this, he wrote back that he removed his steering column cover and found a screw opposite the cylinder lock that had loosened and fallen out.

So you could try removing the steering column cover and see if all is ok.

Also, when you have it opened up, observe the action as you turn the key, as the problem could be the cylinder lock itself.
