This sounds like a relay may have gotten wet, try turning switch off and on a few times and maybe remove relays one at a time and blow them off and also the scoket they sit in. hope this is helpful.

Uneven idle while running and in park but no check engine light

The idle air control motor is dirty. It's mounted on the throttle body. Clean the plunger and spring with brake clean, you clean use a soft wire brush or tooth brush. Also clean the hole it came out of. Wouldn't hurt to use the brush and clean as far as you can in the throttle body. It will take a second or two to start after you do this, Then run normal afterwards.

Why does my 2006 chevy silverado 1500 5.3 ltre have an uneven idle when running and in park. no check engine light.

You need to clean the throttle body and the idle air control motor. Use brake clean and a toothbrush. Clean inside the throttle as far as you can and clean especially the back of the throttle plate and where it sits when it is shut. It's best to remove the Idle control motor and clean it with the brush. But you can start the engine and clean it some by revving it up and spraying into the throttle around the hole for the motor. It will take a second or two to start after cleaning.

My 1981 VW diesel was running and parked. Then it just went off as if I turned it off. Now it seems like there is no power to ignition switch. Lights will not come on and with key off park lights...

check your battery terminals are clean and tight check all connections. charge battery to see if it may not be charging.Check your fuses possibly blown fuses. check power wire from battery to starter is tight clean. check negative from battery to engine make sure it is clean and tight on engine or where ever it may be run to such as chassis.

95 Buick park ave is stuttering when pressing on gas pedal. Tuned up still doing it. No check engine light puzzled?

Use brake clean and clean the inside of the throttle body. open the valve and clean the back of the plate and inside the throttle as best you can, use a small brush. If you have a Mass air flow sensor clean this also. don't use a brush on this. Once you clean those , start the engine, may take a second. then spray some of the brake clean in the throttle at higher RPM's. This should help your problem. Let me know

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...

A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.
