I had the same problem on an 08 Equinox. After jumping the battery, recharging, checking all fuses and swaping some of them, I returned to it and it started like if nothing had been wrong. Then I realized that I used a different Key and remote.
I remote locked it and used the first remote and key again and the problem came back. I went back and forth a couple of times and recreated the problem. PROBLEM was my regular key lost its program. I reprogrammed the remote and key and lived happily ever after. good luck.

My 2006 chev equinox was driving fine but then the check engine light came on...when I went to accelerate there was nothing the vehicle would not move...also the TCS light came on as well


TCS light is for electronic throttle control . This will set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code ! Your best bet is have it taken , towed to a qualified repair shop .

Could be a weak connection between the battery and starter, or the clutch safety switch. You would need to know how far power is getting in the starter circuit to figure it out.

My 2006 Equinox won't start. The battery is fine it is just making a lot of clicking noises. What could be the problem?


First question is: Is the battery really fine? Turn on the headlights and see if they stay on while trying to crank the engine.

If they stay on on then yes, the batttery is fine and the problem is likely your starter solenoid.

if not, then you may have a dead cell or two in the battery that provide enough power to light up your interior and run accessories, but cannot turn the engine over. Hope this helps you find the issue. Cliff

Rodeo just clicks ,not battery or starter what next?


Turn on the interior lights. Try to start the engine. If the starter solenoid clicks and , the interior lights doesn't change intensity, then you have to troubleshoot the starter. If the interior lights dims then something at starter or engine is jammed.
If you suspect anything wrong with the starter let me know, and a will tell you how to troubleshoot the starter.

I need to reset my computer on a 2006 chev equinox


there are 2 ways to do this, use a scan tool ($50 for a basic one) to reset the light, the other is to disconnect the battery for 5-10 minutes, be advised if the problem is not corrected that set the light the light will come back on in about 20 miles, also if the system is not ready u will fail smog, this means they (person doing the smog) know there was a problem.

Hiya...the factory-installed keyless remote control are installed in most Equinoxes IF SO equipped with this option that year.
However, it's difficult to get "true factory-installed" keyless feature in your Equinox ....but new 2008-2009 Equinoxes built this year now comes with standard keyless remote and yes, new option is remote STARTER feature (that option is identified by a black wire found inside the rear-right quarter window with thin metal line surrounding that interior window to receive signal from remote starter fob)

At least you can find after-market keyless remote control at your local retail store.

Dash light do not come on but lights do for drl on 2005 chev equinox


DRL (Daytime Running Lights) will come on any time you start your car.
The dash lights do not come on, unless your headlights turn on. Either by a daylight sensor or if you manually turn them on by the switch.
So even though your headlights are on with the DRL, if you notice the tail lights do not come on (just like the dash lights don't).

To test if your dash lights do work, turn your headlight switch on. You should the the tail lights and dash lights come on.
