Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

10 year old Rainbird system runs at scheduled 4AM start. Re-starting on its own at 7AM. Time for a new controller box? Or is it something else?

Looking for solutions. Would rather not buy a new brain box if it's a problem in one of the boxes out in the yard.

SOURCE: replaced the brain box,but still wont start

Yes unforunatly, unless you know of a good repair shop that has the proper equipment. The thing is you vehicle may run with just a junk yard "brain box" (powertrain control module or PCM) but it wouldn't have the correct info in it (VIN gor that vehicle or mileage etc...). WWhat's cuasing the vehicle not to run is the anti theft. Your vehicles keys have a transpoder or chip in it that goes to a "brain box" (Sentry key immobilizer module or SKIM) that in turn sends a signal to the PCM telling it that nobody has just broke into the ignition switch and is just turning it with a screwdriver or something. There is really no way to bypass it either. Wish I had better news but I hope this helped

the number on the pcm has to match and you will need to swap the eprom out from the old one to the new one. open the unit and you will see a rectangular eprom simply lift it out and make sure it gose back in the same direction usually a small white dot in one corner to indicate pin 1

How reset oil change light 2011 charger


Your vehicle is equipped with an engine oil change
indicator system. The "Oil Change Due" message will
flash in the EVIC display for approximately 10 seconds
after a single chime has sounded to indicate the next
scheduled oil change interval. The engine oil change
indicator system is duty cycle based, which means the
engine oil change interval may fluctuate dependent upon
your personal driving style.

Unless reset, this message will continue to display each
time you cycle the ignition to the ON/RUN position. To
turn off the message temporarily, press and release the
MENU button. To reset the oil change indicator system
(after performing the scheduled maintenance), perform
the following procedure:

1. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button and cycle the ignition to the ON/
RUN position (Do not start the engine.)

2. Fully depress the accelerator pedal, slowly, three times
within 10 seconds.

3. Without pressing the brake pedal, push the ENGINE
START/STOP button once to return the ignition to the
OFF/LOCK position.

NOTE: If the indicator message illuminates when you
start the vehicle, the oil change indicator system did not
reset. If necessary, repeat this procedure.

2004 2.2 Olds Alero starter will not start unless I jump the solenoid


My daughter had an alero and frequently it had issues with the security features and had to follow the reset procedure to get it to start. I cannot remenber the reset procedure but it is available online in a lot of places, as so many people have had issues with that car. Something to the effect of putting it in neutral and turning the key to the on position but not try to start it, leave it there for 10 minutes or something and then the car will start. The security lamp would go out. I just rememembered after typing all of that, that the security lamp in the dash display would light or flash when that was the issue. My daughter solved all fo her alero problems. She bought a Mazda 3 , You didnt buy that from Off lease.com during the past year or so did you? Maybe her old car???

1975 351W with 2 bbl carb, runs great for about 10 minutes, then dies.


Chances are it is the ignition box on the fender. It controls the ground signal to the coil and the timing.
If you can duplicate the problem and get it to "not start" you could test the box. Otherwise it may be tough to troubleshoot.
There's a chance something is going on with the pickup coil in the distributor too.
