    my buddies explorer did the same thing. but the fuses are good but i did notice that the fuse socket was not getting any voltage with or without the ignition on.

    I'm having the same problem with my Explorer, the door ajar light stays on until I start driving, same with the interior lights, but they go off as well once on the road. My driver's side lock control won't lock when the car is off, but the doors automatically lock as they always have once the car begins to move, and it will lock and unlock properly if the car is running. I thought fuse, but I'm not sure what is going on? Did yours act like this at all?

When I try to start my 2008 Pontiac G6 the only sound is a sort of clicking and then three messages come up on the info radio display. The messages are: "Service traction" "Service...


The clicking you are hearing is the starter solenoid attempting to engage your flywheel of the engine. So you do have some battery life and your battery cables aren't totally bad. So now we need to try to determine what the problem is.

First, try to jump start the car. If that works and the car starts. IMMEDIATELY, take it to an auto parts store and ask them to test your battery and alternator. Replace whichever one is bad.

If it doesn't start, then it is either your starting circuit or the engine. So you need to take off your serpentine belt and try to turn the engine (in neutral or out of gear) by hand (actually with a large socket wrench). If it turns, then you have either a bad starter solenoid or a bad starter - replace them! If you can't turn the engine by hand then the problem is internal to the engine and something is locking your flywheel.

The other warning messages are not uncommon if you attempt to start your vehicle and it doesn't start.

Same issue no radio,windows, locks but dash board electric works


Try unhooking the battery, turn key on, leave door open, then connect battery, start engine immediately. The battery saver module thinks it's saving your power!!

2001 Sebring won't start


I had same problem when I had a plain copy of the key made.
There's a proximity chip in the factory key or something, but the plain copy would not work. Engine would crank, then immediately stop. I didn't need the extra key bad enough to spend $80+ at the dealership.

02 VW Jetta locks, remote, lights, windows stopped working


Same problem with an '03 Golf--remote entry, power windows, and interior lights stopped working. This was easily fixed by replacing fuse #14, (10 amp), located in the driver's side fuse block.

When I shut off the ignition the radio and dome light stayed on


I have the same truck. The thing is designed so that the radio and dome light and even the windows will operate for a time which should expire immediately when you open the door. Try turning on the radio with engine running and then turn off the engine and just sit there and the radio should still play. Try the power windows - they too should go up and down. Finally open the drivers door and that should immediately kill the radio, windows and dome light. If it does not - you will need to report that problem to your dealer since the problem is in that timer feature which is part of the vehicles "brain". Sorry I can't be more helpful.
