I have been having the same problem. Do you hit pot holes when driving that may possibly jar the battery in the car enough to shut the engine off? I have been having that issue, the only thing I can thing of is that the battery isn't securly on or even the possitive and negative cables need switched.

Leaking water-Have you had the radiator and water pump checked? I know in my case it has to be a hose (it could possibly be the reserve tank too) We fixed the main hose that goes to the radiator, but no such luck. I'm gonna need to put it up on the ramp and check all the hoses out.

Random Sensors- If you hit pot holes does your track off light come on? In that case I know that's normal. I also have been told that the older the car the more likely the "Service Engine Soon" light will stay on. I know I also have a problem with the fuse box, sometimes the lights in my car will turn off then turn on, and sometimes one headlight will work and sometimes it won't.

I have an 05 Suzuki Forenza that has a flashing check engine light. This started on Tuesday. Had the codes looked up. Car is driving shaky and dash lights are blinking. Any ideas?

fix the anti freeze leak --before you blow a head gasket

what your codes mean

Check Engine Light On, P0300 Random Misfire Code. A random misfire means your engine is misfiring, but that the problem is not isolated to one or two cylinders. It is jumping around in a random way from one cylinder to another. A random misfire code usually means the air/fuel mixture is running lean.

What the P0700 code means. P0700 is set when the PCM detects a malfunction in the transmission control system. This malfunction causes the vehicle to set a Check Engine Light and trigger a failsafe mode. Once the failsafe mode is set it will remain until the fault is repaired or normal operation is detected.

2008 saturn aura xe3.5 motor 56,000 mile just purchased having problems with it already. ..engine light came on had it check out at auto zone ..only one code p 330 knock sensor. Engine light is off..but...

Bad ignition module often will not set a code for itself. Hard to diagnose due to being so random. Also just possible tach feed wire is shorting somewhere, coming and going.

Why isn't my fan working? My car is overheating while driving and the fan doesn't kick on to cool engine down, even while driving.

There should be a fan relay and it may be protected with a fuse. There are temperature sensors which sense the water is hot and make the relay work.

Just had exhaust replaced. Now car keeps stalling whenever I stop. (red lights, stop signs, drive thrus)

I suspect the job was questionable on the exhaust
& leaks have a role in the oxygen sensors role to
work correctly

Also the stalling has to be something someone
removed to do other work & just gave you the
car back, checking nothing,no road test,nothing,
sloppy work

Check if air idle solenoid is hooked up or working

Heater stopped working loss of coolant and rough Idle

I had a similar experience. Finally the car started overheating. Turned out the thermostat went bad and the radiator blew a leak. Had those replaced. Runs great.

Random surges interrupt electrical system. When stopped, car stalls immediately and all warning lights come on. While driving, car hesitates and goes through an extremely fast restart with check engine...

the ignition switch itself,or the ignition relay is bad.the ignition relay is in the fuse box under the hood.swap it with another relay with the same number.another thing you could do is run 12v from the battery to the pin that is activated by the relay when it is turned on.This will power up the cluster and if the car stays running fine,the ignition switch or the wiring from it to the relay is bad.The crank sensor failure will set off a check engine light as the pcm will detect a variation in engine rpm and set a p300 random misfire code,or the code for the crank sensor.

Overheating again

The heater stopped working because there was no coolant in it. Your real question is where is the water going.

Have the cooling system pressure tested to be sure you have no leaks. You said you had the radiator flushed, I suspect some of the tubes are blocked, it should be dissassembled and rodded then cooked out. Not just flushed. You problem is in traffic, low speed. The car starts to over heat, it blows the water out of the overflow, the level is down, the heater stops working, then you are out of water in the engine and overheating.

BTW ground the wire that goes to the warning light sensor and be sure it lights the warning light. If htis is the case the sensor is bad. I assume when you turn the key on but before starting the light does work then, correct? That means the bulb is ok, that does not check the sensor.

Good Luck!

I agree with Emissionwiz, this is a unique problem that I have not encountered. This situation is def one that merits "hands on" diagnosis;


If you want an educated "guess", (and this is ONLY a GUESS),
I would suggest replacement of the RPM sensor on the A/C compressor....HOWEVER, I would NOT guarantee that will cure your problem.
