I own a 1998 Chevy Malibu personally, change the ignition switch I had the identical issue, the switch eventually stopped turning completely, my vehicle had to be towed!! Save yourself a headache, I got one from a junkyard for 2.00, but it had to be programmed for the vehicle, I would take it to a trusted shop or dealer.

1991 Cadillac DeVille (has 110,000 miles on it) suddenly dies while driving. Starts and idles fine, but shuts off after driving only 1-2 blocks. What's wrong and how do we fix it?


There are many things that can contribute to this problem. It sounds like it may be ignition related. Possibly an ignition control module or ignition coil. The check engine light coming on while driving is the key to finding the problem. The light comes on when the computer finds a problem and will then store it in its memory. Have the codes checked for what the computer has found to be at fault and with a little diagnostics, should lead you to the problem

What could be wrong with my 2006 Chevrolet HHR?


Sounds like a programming or electonic problem If it was to replace an ignition switch, the dealership may have flashed the computer with the wrong information to operate you vehicle or match up with the replaced part.. You will most definitely have to take it back.

Intermittent dash board problems


sounds like you have a grounding issue possibly a main grounding location. inconsistant grounding of the vehicles control module will cause erratic behaviours. check under the hood for ground locations containing multiple grounds at 1 bolt location.if different "experts" have attempted repair and failed chances are they are all looking in the wrong place.dash{interior of vehicle}..actual cause.{egine compartment or under side of vehicle..ie...ground locations.}good luck and safe motoring:>

2000 Chevrolet Impala LS 3.8L keeps dying while driving, no codes or warnings. It's been happening for years but seems worse now. Ignition module already replaced. Fuel pump hums when I turn ke


many possible causes. sounds all too much like a crank sensor failing. when it dies, does it act like you shut key off, (instant stall)? or does it sputter and cough, then stall out? seen this same situation and problem many times in my shop and a cranksensor fail can be hard to catch when it fails. most likely cause.

99 honda accord dies @various times. Whats happening?


Does it restart easily?

Check the battery lead to the car body the black one ensure it is tight and has a good connection. ensure the battery leads are both tight and make sure neither are touching the bonnet.

Can you give me some more details like how it happened, what the car does when it happens etc.?

1995 ford taurus 3.0l v6 wagon no spark.


Listen TFI module is more than likely the problem change it. TFI module controls spark and timing and fuel. Keep one with you in the car. The module is getting hot and not working right.

Ignition won't turn to drive


if tapping it doesnt work. hit it hard for a few minutes then try to turn it forward and back both then repeat.  I had a tow truck come to tow me and he started banging on mine.  I said i already did that while waiting for you and he said you will see.  he kept doing it and a few minutes later i looked like a ********.  He told me the pins were sticking and a lock smith could take the first 2 pins out for me.
