Question about 2006 Hummer H3

H3 simply will not start, cranks like crazy

It seems like after X cycles of the ignition, my '06 H3 simply will crank like crazy and not start. If I wait 10-15 mins, it'll start like nothing was wrong. It happened to me one night after work, and recently at a gas pump. Very frustrating because it's just now out of warranty.

Put it in neutral and try again. My s10 does this all the time.

06 equinox eng cut out when warm does not crank over untill cool


Start with the fuel pump.When you get into your car turn the ignition key to the on position but do not start your car.Listen for the fuel
Pump to engage,you will hear a low whine.If you hear the pump engage,that doesn't rule that the fuel pump is fine.It sounds like the pump though.

Went to start my 06 H3 and everything is dead. No electrical whatsoever. No I didn't leave any lights on. :) Now I can't even get the key to turn back all the way so I can't get the key out....


First check the battery connections. Make sure they are all clean and tight. Ground cable and connection to starter as well. Try getting a boost or put a charger on it. When you get it going, you'll have to check everything closely to make sure nothing is on. It is possible that the battery is just done, or the starter could be fried and just drained the battery. Let me know how you make out.

I have an 2006 h3 . problem is that every once in a while it does not start , cranks but no start , i do not hear the fuel pump when you first turn the key , if i leave it for about half an hour then it...


Wow... My 2006 H3 has similar intermittent starting problems. I've noticed the starter seems to "run on" for a second or two...after returning the ignition key to off. It's' happened during cold start-ups.... and at normal operating temperatures. I couldnt find much information on it but since the ignition system appears to reset itself after 20 or 30 minutes.... I'm swaying towards checking the ohms resistance of the ignition key chip and its relationship to the fuel shutoff circuit managed by the security system. I'll let you know how it goes.... wyatt

Might be two problems, but one is your igniter in the distributor. The second, the idling problem is either your throttle position sensor, or a vacuum leak. With the engine running , check all hoses for leaks by wiggling them around, while listening for a hissing. Check intake bolts for tightness.

Chevy cavalier wont start randomly! makes one click and a humm sound my lights come on the radio comes on but the car just wont start, ive had battery replaced along with the ignition switch, fuel pump,...


Ok then, from your description and the
make/model/year of the car you have there,
it appears you've reset the VATS.

The car's security immobilizer
reader at the key switch
does not recognize the coded
chip in the ignition key any longer.

You can try to put the key
in the ignition, turn to the on position &
wait at least 10 min like that.
(Do not turn off the key switch before
10 minutes as elapsed!)

Once done, the key is re-programmed and
should allow the fuel injectors to work again.
The car would start now if corrected.

In some cases, the VATS (GM'S VEHICLE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM)
will re learn the code this way, and will then
allow the restart, however if this does not work,
then you can simply tow it to any GM vehicle dealer
to have the service department re code it.

There is a permanent solution though.
Adding the PLJX Self learning Bypass module (59.95)
will bypass the PASSLOCK system in your vehicle
for good. See this at www.PASSLOCK2.com

Good luck I hope method 1 does the trick!

Here is the 30 min relearn:

Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

Gas or ignition problem, cranks but does not start.


It could be the Starter Safety Switch, which prevents starting the engine while it's in gear. Try jiggling the shifter while it's in Park, or put it in Neutral. I'm waiting for mine to do it again so I can try one of these fixes. Good luck.
