Question about 1999 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

On two occasions in the last 6 months my 99 chevy monte carlo would not restart after a short drive. The key turned ok, all the idiot lights came on, horn, headlights, but nothing when I turned the key. Also, the brake pedal was down to the floor and would not come up. 20 minutes later, the car started rightup and the brake pedal returned to normal position. Nobody has been able to help at the chevy dealer.

    Just a note: when I go to restart, there is nothing. No engine turning over, no click, no nothing except the elecrical system as I stated.

Brake pedal going to the floor is probably because engine is not starting. If the engine cranks over but will not start then you are possibly getting vapor lock. This could be caused by air in your fuel line which in turn is caused by a bad fuel pump. If the motor will not turn over then odds are on that you have a bad solinoid. Please rate my answer.
