    Sorry it took so long to update everyone on this posting. I replaced the alternator because the problem was the voltage regulator. Ofcourse with these new cars you can't just replace the regulator. So when I replaced the alternator it fixed the problem.

2009 chevy traverse wont start after hooking amp up car was fine

OK. you had the battery disconnected. Here is what you do. Turn on the key. The security light will begin to flash. Wait (about 10 minutes) with the key in the ON position. The security light will stop flashing. TURN OFF the key. Then, turn on the key and start the car. Security system is supposed to prevent theft for a 10 minute delay. This usually discourages any thief. This will work, You just need to be patient with the 10 minutes. It seems like an hour when you wait ten minutes for that security light to stop flashing.

When not running the engine for a week, the battery dies. When I jump start it, engine will start cranking very slow and pickup speed before it starts running.

it seems like the battery is going. clean battery terminals, also the grounding to the body (engine block, transmission, etc.) all should be shiny cleaned. suggest you go to autozone (or other auto parts) for a free battery & alternator tests.

I have a clarion rk20 keyless entry and remote start on my 2003 jeep grand cherokee it works fine but whenever i remote start it, its parking lights continue to flash as if the hazard lights were on?

After doing some poking around, I found that flashing parking lights are an indication that the remote start is being used. According to the information I found, the parking lights shouldn't keep on flashing after your 2003 Grand Cherokee has started. I am assuming that your parking lights, however, continue to flash even after the engine has started and you have put your Jeep into gear. Please let me know if that is the case as if it is then you likely have a short somewhere in the wiring that is telling your alarm system's brain that the remote circuit is still being used.

In order for something like this to happen, the major power line is usually pulled high when the remote is activated. When it is pulled high, the computer tells your car's parking lights to enter flash mode. What should happen next is that when the system has fired, the line should drop back to standard voltage and, at that point, the change in voltage should tell your parking lights to go back into standard mode.

What is happening instead is that the flasher light activation circuit remains high even after it is supposed to reset to normal.

The usual cause of this is a short somewhere on the input side of the alarm circuity. It is this side of the circuitry that pulls the parking lights into flash mode. It may be as simple as a short in the alarm system's switching wire harness (even something as simple as a loose crimp on a spade connector or a molex plug insert can cause it.

If you do not have easy access to the switch wiring, the wiring harness or loom, I would suggest taking it to a good alarm shop, telling them what is going on and having them trace the circuits until they find the troublemaker.

The s flashing in my dash board

the s/p button changes the shift points,
normal is mpg (early shifts)
sports is later shift, faster accel, and lower MPG
if the lamp and seat of pants says the trans is stuck in Sport
mode then it is, as it seems...
so the switch is bad or the wire to it, from TCM to switch
using a voltmeter finds this out fast, go one?
keyon, no start.
connect meter to switch, does the voltage change from 0v
to 5 or 12v, when switched, no then the switch is bad.
if a 0v all the time the switch is bad or the line (wire shorted to body)
remove wire. (hot side not ground) and does the voltage rise over 5v
then the switch is shorted.
what we do is check both pins on the switch, one is ground
other is signal, if it dont change with the switch action we fine out why
ask how.
0v. all time, switch shorted or wire shorted to body
>5v all the time, wire cut, switch broken in the open position.
0v to high volts with switch action is good.

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.

The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

Hi I'm having numerous problems with my MK4 Golf. It started loosing water out of the bottom of the radiator due to corrosion so I replaced it but it is still loosing water. I've had a look and it...

it is obviously that the high temp and cooling issue has affected your cylinder head gasket replace the gasket and it will be fine and please check that the water pump is working by observing the water circulation through the radiator reservoir

Jimmy would not start, voltmeter read 9. After jumping battery, engine started but voltmeter did not go above 9. Battery symbol did not light up. Alternator or battery with high resistance?

sounds either like your alternator is bad, if it still goes dead then i would go with the alternator, other wise a cell or two could be bad or shorted in the battery.
