Sounds like a generic security system problem. If it doesn't happen again, then don't worry.

However, if it happens again, have the dealer try to duplicate the problem. I know this is hard, but it's a statistical thing.

Hope this helps.

1997 Plymouth Breeze Engine keeps shutting off.


You need to do an OBD2 engine control module fault code test to see if the fault is recorded in the memory of the computer control module. Autozone and others do this testing for free.

My 2004 jeep liberty stopped running two fridays ago. my mother was driving it, went into her insurance place and left my 13 y/o son in the car with the car running and a/c on. about 8 minutes into that...


I would get the battery checked, even new ones can be bad, I had a Bosch that went bad after 5 months.
Get the codes read, my 2003 Liberty recently had a problem starting also, thought it was the fuel pump or filter, code came back as the Crankshaft position sensor being faulty, could be a sensor giving you trouble, mine would start right away once it got warm.
When it comes to sensors there is not a lot of difference between making the circuit complete and not.

Hope this helps!
Cheers

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier. A couple of months ago, just after starting the car one day, the 'check engine' and 'trac off' lights both came on. I immediately shut off the car, waited approximately 5...


Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.

Security light comes on while driving on my 2001 GMC Jimmy


Several GM products, including the Chevrolet Impala and Malibu, the Oldsmobile Alero, the Pontiac Grand Prix, and Saturn Ion, have issues with the Security light coming on. This is many times an indication of a failing Body Control Module (BCM). Initially, the Security light will come on then go off, progressing to a constant on light, before the car will refuse to start. Other symptoms may include erratic action of electronics, a clicking sound coming from the glove box, and the air conditioning failing to blow cold air. I recommend a shop that specializes in the electronic systems of vehicles to diagnosis and make the necessary repairs. They should keep the car until they replicate the symptoms described. A new BCM from GM should cost about $230; plan on another $200 for them to diagnose the problem, replace the unit, and program the new unit. The dealers quote between $700 and $1,100 for the same repair. My experience and the experiences I have read on the internet, indicate the new BCM should last only about a year.

1996 Olds Achieva Engine cuts out


Take both cables of the battery and clean them with a wire brush, reinstall them making sure those little 5/16 hex bolts are nice and tight in the battery. Trace the battery ground cable back to where it bolts to the engine block, make sure it is very clean and tight. There should be a body ground somewhere, this is a conductor between the engine block and the metal body part of the engine compartment- clean and tight as well. If you can't find the body ground, make one.
Now get on your hands and knees and inspect behind both front kick panels and under the dashboard valence, inside the car. You are looking for single or clusters of brown or black wires that are bolted to the body inside the car. Clean and tight for these as well. I promise, this is where your problem lies, but I'm betting on loose battery terminals right now.

I have honda accord 1999 88K mile. recently while driving my engine stopped, I tried to turn it on several times and succeeded but after 20, 30 sec it stopped again. to get back home I had to repeat it...


replace the ignition module they are really the only part that causes this, as far as the lights go this happens when the engine shuts off? or do you mean no waring lights go on?.
