The cigarette lighter fuse.Use a "test light".. now turn the ign key on, now put the point of the test light at the ends of the fuse, (2 small openings on the end of the fuse) you should have power on both sides, if only one side has power, but not the other side, that fuse is bad. now if neither side has power, the fuse isnt getting power, and it may be for a component thats not on at this time, dont worry about those now. you really should not let these parts guys read codes and recommend parts, the love to sell you oxygen sensors, and when that doesnt fix it, they sell you more uneeded parts.

How can I start my 2008 Chevy trailblazer 4.2 v6?

Ho It would have nothing to do with the starting. Does it crank over?.. Is there Gas?.. and is there spark?. a 2008 will have fuel injection so the best answer would be a diagnostic.. Try getting an ODP reader and plug it into the connector.. The ODP reads the onboard diagnostic codes. Is your check engine light on?.. do you hear the fuel pump?.. Probably knowing chev.. and my knowledge on them.. I will hedge bets on fuel pump. Answer back with - does it crank...does the engine "kick and try to start?.." or is it just turning over with no life. No life.. I would say fuel pump .

Camshaft position sensor A code

Just because you have a code for that sensor it doesn't mean the sensor is defective and in this case it is seldom the cause of the code. See your local dealer for diagnosis and testing before replacing any parts. Never listen to parts persons about diagnostic code fixes, they know nothing about the system.

Hi ihave a 2003 mazda 6 s v6 that i bought just over a month aqo. my check engine light came on i had it tested they told me it could be spark plugs or coil packs that i needed . so i got need bosch spark...

First I would find a garage that doesn't charge for diagnostics. I don't unless it is an electrical issue, which I usually fix when I find it. Second you have to get the coolant leak taken care of. This could be the entire problem. If you have overheated your car, it could have blown an intake manifold gasket or a head gasket letting coolant into the cylinders. This would pop 02 and misfire codes. This would also account for the jerking and hard starts. Also just a note get rid of the bosch plugs. Worthless. Go with what the manufacturer recommends. they may cost more but well worth it.

Truck wont start

Check all the fuse. The reason why the scanner wont read is probably the computer is not getting power.

The check engine light is on chevy cavalier 2001

The check engine light would record an error code in the computer, you need to get that information in order to know what the next step is.

Hi.I have a 1998 Dodge Avenger sport with almost 53,000 miles on it.Car is automatic with V6 and 2.5L.The check engine light stays on.I took car to sears auto center and was told the computer in the car is...

I really hate to say this because i don't recommend used parts to be put into a vehicle especially when it comes to electrical or computer components, but you may be able to check your local parts yards and see if they may have what you need if you are on a tight budget. Or you may have to buy a new computer. I would have also take it somewhere else for a second opinion before spending the money on a new computer. ope this helps.
