Toyota cavalier car coughed and stopped, idles rough and cuts out when accelerating, 'theft control' light on dash


The reason stated by you comes if the key is not properly inserted. Insert the key properly. Also reason for your problem can be due to fuel pump and ignition switch which are related to anti theft security system which protects your ride from robbing. You can go through following site for a detail description on how to turn the theft light off.

2002 gmc envoy stalls when turning and slowing down


I am going to assume the check engine light is not on.
I would check the throttle body to see if it needs to be cleaned, and check the idle air control valve to see if it is working. The computer controls idle speed by the amount of air coming into the throttle body.
The ac problem is probably something different such as low freon or a cooling fan problem.

Ignition switch is jammed after removing key


try holding the steering wheel hard over left, try to turn the key. then try hard over to the right while trying to turn the key. The steering lock may just have too much pressure against it. for instance if the steering wheel was turned before removal of the ignition key. If it still doesnt work try a bit of lock lube or WD40 in the key slot and run the key in and out of the ignition to free up the lock.

99 intrepid hard to start and or cutts out, what is my solution


n most 90's and up Dodge/Chrysler vehicles, you can try to pull codes from the car's computer as long as you still have a charged battery. Put your key in the ignition, and turn it forward, but not far enough to engage the starter. Turn the key back to the Off position, then forward, back and forward again. In early 90s vehicles, the Check Engine light is going to flash a number of times. Often, code 55 means it is completed.
In mid and late 90s vehicles, you will often get a 4 digit code that may help you diagnose problems starting, mostly checking the eletrical, ignition and sensor systems.

hello, if you car stalls instanly maybe your ignition system has a loose connection or even has a short somewhere. but if it coughing but still trying to idle normally maybe your carb dirty. one thing, some carbs has a solenoid air switch attached on one of its side. if this solenoid is shorted damaged you'll have the same effect. hope this helps.

1995 Dodge Intrepid will turn over but will not fire.


Nothing seems obvious from reviewing the diagram. You might want to test the ignition switch for continuity to the start buss.
