If the lights on the dash all come on but the engine wont turn over it could be a problem with the VAT security system. Your key has a little chip on it between the teeth and the handle. This is a common problem with GMs', often just replacing the key is necessary but sometimes the VAT module needs to be replaced.

You either have a dead battery from leaving lights on or something else on, or your alternator is bad if your car is not turning over at all. Hope this helps you get going.

sounds like an ignition switch glitch or ignition harness problem can be either depending on the amount of wear and tear with turning on and off of the ignition tumbler or possible chafing or inconsistent short in harness to ignition switch check the ground line up through harness first and check the wiring harness condition

I have a 99 buick park ave 3.8, got in the car drove to get dinner went in eat, cam out tryed to start would not, after 2hours it started drove to the house it staled, as long as it is cold it will run...


either the crank position sensor or something else but you will need to do some tests and post the results so myself or another mechanic can give you the diagnosis ,like when it stops is it still sparking?? are the plugs wet when it stops ?? is their fuel pressure when it stops ,is it throwing out black smoke ??

I HAVE A 1993 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE drove it about 45 minutes ago went ate dinner and had to leave and now it wont start it turns over but wont fire cleaned battery terminals cables wires and cap and rotor...


Do you have a security system? Some jeeps have a factory system and you unlock the pasenger door with the keys to turn it off. Could also be the crank sensor.

Problems with the transmisson


Whit the engine ruining check your transmission fluid level
is possible than you have a transmission fluid leak and don't have enough fluid to work properly. NOTE: Do not ever fill it because that can case your transmission to wear out faster.
And make sure the car is on a level place and the engine is running while you check the level.
