Hello Ester,

The Kalos is called many names in different markets. In North America it is branded under the Pontiac G3 in the United States, selling alongside the "Chevrolet Aveo"

I suspect an ignition problem, you best starting point is ODBII diagnostics which may provide a fault code to assist in isolating your problem.

My past experience with failures that occur (only) when vehicles are at operating temperature and correct themselves when the engine has cooled down have been associated with a failing ignition module.

This module can and will be affected by a poor coil, worn or faulty ignition components like spark plug leads, spark plugs, distributor caps and rotors....but the major causes of ignition module failures are heat.

When was the last time you had your vehicle serviced? If it has been quite some time or never...I suggest a tune up would be a good investment and be sure to notify the garage of the symptoms you have been experiencing.

SOURCE: turning off the air bag chevrolet kalos

Are you talking about the passenger side? They sometimes have a switch to turn them off. The drivers side does not have an on off switch. Be careful working around air bags they can KILL YOU.

SOURCE: chevrolet kalos 05. Had intermittent

This model is not sold in the USA, so since we are based in San Mateo California I will have to assume this has OBD2 electronic engine controls? If this is the case, and I'm 95% sure it is in Europe, then what testing has been done to justify all these parts, one thing is for sure a Knock sensor will NOT cause a no start, ever a Crank sensor will cause a not start. When the engine doesn't want to start what is it losing? Is it spark to the spark plugs? Is it fuel pressure? If I am going to help you here I'll need to know exactly what has been done and why, that includes the history of what fault codes were present in the memory of the ECM (electronic control unit), Has the fuel pressure be monitored when the no start occurs?. Also what do you mean it "sounds like it going to turn over" that is very vague. Thanks I await your answers to these questions before I can assist any further.

SOURCE: how do i change the resistor on a chevrolet kalos 1.2

U need to check both inside blower motor fuse and engine fuse block blower fuse. if niether are blown check the blower relay in inside fuse block see if it is clicking when you turn your controler on high. if so its more than likly a bad ground,witch is found on the rt. side of the center counsel near the ash tray. if they are all ok test to see if yiu have power to the motor with a test light to ground. both sides light you have a bad ground, one side you have a bad blower motor. The resister pack in your other Question is next to the blower but high is on its own direct circuit,other speeds are from the resister pack.

The engine light is telling you that the CPU has found
sensor/s outside set parameters during the checking process. Have the fault codes read before wasting time and money guessing what has failed. Replace with genuine items only as aftermarket units are not always compatible with the settings in the CPU.

My 2004 impala dashboard lights come on while driving it doesn't cut of but after I cut the car off headlights flash an clickin noise start what wrong with my car please help Loretta

Impala's are famous for ignition issues, are the interior lights of your dash coming on when you want them, or just by themselves? The clicking after you turn off, I would check the security system, i.e., remote clickers, cars computer, key chip, ect. Sound like your alarm is attempting to engage

Kalos ABS Light stays on?

Hi I had the same problem with my 06 Kalos and it failed the MOT because of the light staying on I tried all sugestions in different forums including new abs rings new brakes etc what worked for me was swithing the ignition key on and off at least six times turning the key alll the way back and then starting the engine the light did not go initially but the next day but this was enough to pass the MOT it came back on after going over potholes but i done it again and it went off and stayed off.

98 ford windstar...service engine light comes on..then it begins to flash, when flashing the power seems to drop, it runs very rough. when coming to a stop or slow turn it may cut off. occasionaly when...

There is only thing will cause the check engine light to flash when you are driving and that is your catalyst converter is over heating and that is very dangerous if you continue to drive the van and the check engine light is flashing there is a very real possibility your van can catch on fire. What causes the catalyst converter to get hot is that raw fuel is being dumped into the exhaust system. That system can get so hot that it will glow cherry red it’s easier to see it at night. Please make sure and are expecting your problem correctly and if you are take it to a shop because you have more than one problem and the van is not safe to drive
