Question about Chevrolet Equinox

There is an electrical buzzing sound in my 2005 Equinox lt as soon as I turn the key on. The vehicle starts with no issues. I put a new battery in recently. Any suggestions how I can get rid of it?

The electrical buzzing noise continues as long as the key is on.

You will need to determine what circuit the noise is coming from. Turn each switch on and off to see if something will affect the noise. Some relay may be malfunctioning. Like the horn relay, A/C Relay, Fuel Relay, Hazard light Flashers, or some heater control.

Car has no power absolutely opened the door with the key tried starting the car no sound no light now key is stuck in


Your key is stuck because your battery is dead, try hooking up a battery charger to it, remember to pay attention to the proper battery terminals so you do not damage your battery or your electrical system.
The key is likely stuck due to a solenoid that is designed to keep you from removing the key if the vehicle is not in park, when the battery is dead the car does not know it is in park and therefore locks the ignition tumbler from returning all the way off.

My vehicle stopped running and had to have towed. Put in new battery now wont start. Windows have now stopped working as has the radio. Tried to turn key today to roll up windows and key don't work.


Start from scratch...remove post battery posts...inspect...clean...reconnect...as you connect the positive (red) side post you should see a small spark...If not, this battery may be defective...check charge level...the Equinox battery is under a cover, and all connections need to be inspected...Hope this helps. Going back to the first symptom...your car stopped running? This could be the alternator that is defective, and your car will die as the battery runs down...

Electrical Issues/Battery Dying


I haven't heard about problems like that other than in a flood damaged vehicle.Did you buy it new?
To check for a battery drain yourself,disconnect the battery large cable and place a 12 volt test light between the cable and the battery positive.If you see a bright light on the test light you do have a vehicle drain,if it's dim don't worry about it.Now,if the light is bright pull one fuse at a time until the light goes dim,this will be the circuit draining and you can now trouble shoot that circuit.Don't cause a bright light by opening a door or turning on the key.DO NOT TRY AND START THE VEHICLE while the test light is hooked up.

When i start the vehicle, it will not turn over


Sounds like your starter and/or solenoid is on it's way out. First be certain that all your battery connections are clean and tight. Also when your vehicle is ready to go for a ride, drive it over to your local AutoZone parts store for a free Alternator Test to rule that out. They can also do a free "bench test" on your starter.

2005 equinox the intermittant power steering issue


The power steering is on this vehicle is electronically assisted. Meaning it does not have a power steering pump. The electric motor could be going out, pulling too much current at times, and tripping the breaker. The best thing to do is take it to the dealer, and have them inspect it.
