A message came on that states "a/c off to protect engine". How do I take this off without taking it to the garage? The coolant is at the right level and I changed the thermostat. Also, I...


A restricted coolant flow (clogged radiator, collapsed hose,etc.) or improperly functioning cooling fan(s) can cause the computer to disable the air conditioner compressor so as to reduce the heat load on the cooling system. What does the indash temperature gauge indicate? Is it running hotter than normal?

Make sure the radiator is full (you mentioned changing the thermostat, did you bleed any trapped air) and make sure you're getting power to the fan(s). Make sure you don't have a blown fuse in the underhood fuse box. If one is blown, you also need to find out why it blew in the first place.

If you check all of this and nothing comes up out of the ordinary, take the vehicle to a radiator shop for further checking.

Good luck!

1991 Jeep Cherokee Limited starts, runs a few minutes then dies


Running for five minutes sounds like something other than a security system problem (usually shuts off much earlier) but if that has been compromised it needs to be put back together or the trigger wire from the drivers door lock needs to be grounded.
I'd look to the throttle position sensor, map sensor, crank position sensor or the ballast resistor on the drivers fender. You need to do tests on those items as all influence the fuel management system after warm up. Test when it is cold and after it shuts off so you don't mistake a part malfunction only when hot. Hands on testing is the ONLY way to determine accurately exactly what is happening there. Anything else is an educated guess!!!

SECURITY LIGHT COMES ON WHEN DRIVING,EVERYTHING IS OK BUT AFTER MAYBE 4 OR 5 TIMES OF SWITCHING OFF THE ENGINE, NEXT TIME TO TURN KEY TO START ENGINE TURNS BUT FUEL IS SHUT OF. PASS LOCK OPERATES. WE THEN...


The most common reason for this condition is a faulty ignition switch. It loses contact momentarily while cranking, causing a voltage loss to the security system and starts the 10 minute security timer in the computer. It will not start until the timer runs out. Usually the key has to be left on after a start attempt for the ten minutes. Some cars require 30 minutes. I hope this helps you and please rate this,

My 2004 Nissan Sentra starts ok on the first start. When I shut down for about 5 or 10 minutes, sometimes it will not start. I leave it for about 20 or 30 minutes and it starts right up. The Nissan Dealer...


you may need headgasket. nissan has a fuel pressure regulator kit, but that is for "long cranking" issue, where it takes about 5 seconds or more of cranking, before the car starts. the problem is leaking regulator, which results in loss of fuel pressure from the system, after you shut the car off. What you describing is a condition, where coolant enters cylinders after you shut the car off, resultin in the coolant flooding your plugs.

Suburban stalls while driving after running for 15-30 minutes. After letting it sit for 5-10 min it runs fine for another 5-10 minutes, then starts doing it all over again.


a bad crank sensor can cause this. shuts off while going down road, and will start about 10 min, later with no problems runs fine until it quits again. hope this helps,

Starts and runs 3-5 seconds and shuts down


Sounds like your security system is shutting the car down. You should be able to leave the key on for 15 minutes and it will reset itself. Make sure you are using factory keys, and they are in good condition.
