Hi,

The possibilities are too numerous to get into here.

Either take your vehicle to AutoZone for a FREE diagnostic scan or they'll loan you a scanner. This will enable you to pinpoint the problem(s) almost immediately.

All the best,

The 96 park avenue will start great and run great. No security light comes on and everything runs smooth. No bucking or hesitation. A great ride. Then all of a sudden it will die. Lights stay on and radio...


It cannot be the VATS system. The TDM, that is the core of the VATS system, is engaged only at the time you start your car. I have a problem exactly like yours on my 95 LeSabre and just discovered it is the alternator that sometimes charges and sometimes doesn't and when it doesn't, the battery's voltage goes lower than a certain threshold and the computer (PCM) is unable to work anymore and shuts down the engine. Took me months to discover this!

Hi,i have a 96 accord 4 cyl. vtec. just recently there has beeen a power loss issue. i have changed the alternator,check the ignition switch,tested fuses , battery seems fine,connections are good no...


check the alternator voltage , it has to be 13.8 to 14.4 vdc. it sounds like your car is running off the battery alone. Sometimes a bad battery will take out an alternator,and after replacing it goes again.Check all connections,and check the feedback terminal on the alternator is telling the alternator to switch on.

'98 S10 4 cyl. 5 speed: Sudden high idle, now surges.


Go to your local shucks or auto zone and they can check any codes behind your check engine light and it's free. It sounds like one of two things a O2 sensor or your mass airflow sensor but they will tell you for sure

All warning lights blink off and on


Try checking all of the ground wire connections. There are a few located on the firewall. I had a crankshaft code coming on and it was the ground that was corroded. Engine performed the same way, dash lights on and off and ABS light coming on and off. The grounds corrected this.
