SOURCE: 1996 Hyundai Accent stopping

The same thing happened to me yesterdag on my hyundai accent 1.5 SOHC (2000). I was driving 130Km/h and suddenly the ignition failed. When restarting everything looked fine. A few weeks ago the engine wouldn't start, it cranks but doesn't start. I replaced spark plugs/wires.

I noticed the following, the second most left warninglight with "key-symbol" didn't light up when trying to start. after disconnecting the battery cabel (+), en after 15 minutes reconnecting it. The problem dissapeared. To me it seems the problem is the Immobilizer. (i'm not sure if this is the right name for it in english, it's called "Startonderbreker" in Dutch.)

Hope this will help.

SOURCE: i have a 2002 Chevy Tahoe. for the past 6 months

without hearing exact noise it is hard to diagnose. these vehicles had a normal cold start knocking noise due to the low friction rings used allowed piston some extra movement. when carbon builds up on pistons it gets worse will go away after about a minute running. it does not affect life of engine or performance. i think this may be noise you hear. or possible it is a lifter leaking down and taking a while to pump up

Blinker, cruise issues...electrical?


The problem is caused by the emergency flasher unit. This is a common problem and you can find a few youtube demos on replacing it. I did it in about 30 mins. I don't remember the cost but it was stocked at my local chevy dealership.
good luck.

Not the alternator, but a fuel pump or fuel filter could be the problem. BUT it depends on the indications. A fuel starvation problem would act like it was lunging and then dieing out before it died. If it just dies out suddenly, then I would suspect an electrical problem like a coil pack or cap.

I've got the same problem on 98 GMC Sierra.

I'm an electrical engineer, I checked the electrical diagrams and verified that there is no problem in the rear lamp assembly or wiring. With the light assembly unplugged, I can actually watch the blinker and brake signals operate with a voltmeter. The Tail light works OK.

It simply won't provide enough current to light the bulbs.

I'm afraid that it's melted one of a pair of normally closed contacts inside the blinker switch that feed the brake and turn separately on each side.

Electrical problem?


If you haven't fixed it yet...
check your fuses. when lots of things suddenly stop working at once usually means you have a blown fuse.
