The engine ignition timing is off.
The ECM (Electronic Control Module) controls the timing. Inspect it / replace it.

2003 sierra gauges not working plus dash plus drains my battery any suggestions ?


Try this simple trick. Shut off every thing in your vehicle, radio, ac, lights, windshield wipers etc.Turn off the vehicle put it in park. Disconnect your battery , wait 5 minutes. Then Without turning any thing on leaving the vehicle in park reconnect the battery start the vehicle and let it Idle for approx 10 minutes. This allows your computer to reset all of your gauges. By assuring that everything is off your computer can concentrate on resetting everything correctly without missing a step . This will set your Idle and all of your Gauges. Whenever your battery is disconnected for what ever reason this step should be followed immediately upon reconnect.

Car will not stay turned ON when cold


Try this. When you first try to turn your engine on, keep your foot on the gas pedal. The car should turn over but not start. (don't worry, its not supposed to). Take your foot off the gas and turn the ignition on again, but Don't touch the throttle this time. That should set your choke correctly. To summarise: Turn key with foot on Gas. Take foot off Gas, and turn key again.

After replacing the battery on my Porsche Carrera 2000, I entered the wrong numbers a couple of times on the radio screen asking me to enter 4 digits and then the screen went on a WAIT signal. Now that I...


Yes - there is a solution here.

The problem here is that you must leave continuous power to the radio until the WAIT period is over. Any interruption to the power causes the countdown or wait period to start all over again. The secret is to ensure the key is turned in the ignition to accessories point I or the first point on the ignition that activates power to the radio.

If the key is not turned in the ignition as outlined, the radio will automatically shut off after one hour which is a power saving feature (which is great) but it also has a side effect in this case of shutting off the radio before the time limit has been reached!!

Obviously - as you must leave the key turned in the ignition during the wait period (which may be up to 4 hours) please ensure the vehicle is parked in a safe location and well away from any opportunistic thief.!!

Hope it helps or for anyone reading this in a similar situation - this information applies to many vehicles and radio types as many manufacturers have a similar security feature.


Additionally - for cheap code retrieval for Porsche and many other car radios please see this link.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Key needs programed


Hello, OK if you have a Black working key and you want to program an additional key start the car, shut it off immediately remove key insert new key and start car. new key is now programmed. If you don't have a key then this is what needs to be done: turn on ignition engine off, the security tell tale should be on. Wait 10 minutes, the security should be off. turn key off. Repeat the preceding steps two more times (total of 30 minutes) WAIT AT LEAST 10 SECONDS between each time. On the last step be sure to turn ignition off (10sec) before you start car.
