My van won't start after driving a short distance, it will start again after 3 to 5 minutes but then will act like it's going to stall while I'm driving. What's wrong?


Hi Greg, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair in St Charles Mo

Greg, I read your complete message, but nowhere did I see that you replaced the Cam Sensor. The EGR will cause it to stall at stops but usually will not prevent it from restarting. I would try replacing the Cam Sensor before anything else. If you should need further assistance go to my website by clicking here: Auto Repair

Truck will run 1/2 mile and quit


Interesting.
When it stalls and won't start, are you missing spark to the plugs or fuel to the injectors ?

2000 Dodge Stratus SE stalling and not restarting


Sounds like a broken wire probably close to where the computer is. I would inspect the harness here and then under and around the power distribution module (fuse and relay box under the hood) This can be removed for closer inspection of the contacts underneath.

Check all sensor connections especially the crank


Pull the MAP sensor plug connector out and try to start the car, if it starts and runs rough and then wont when the map is plugged in then replace it and you are a go.
I think this is your problem or fuel pump or the fuel pump wire is corroded typically where it connects to the harness and then goes into the body.
This is somewhere to start at least.

Why won't my miss fire?


Fuel injectors may be dirty.. or plugged. The car just sitting there may have caused the gas to go bad which may have given them a head start on plugging from the get go. Get some cleaner for it.
When the dash lights blink, is it unlike anything you've seen it do before?

What codes do you have?

You have a service engine lamp on
Have to start there

Also the turning thing, tells you something,maybe

The idling won't do a thing

The EVAP System may not run a monitor for days
& you have to drive under certain conditions for it to run

1999 grand am 'security light' stays blinking - cant start car


1. Attempt to start the car, let it stall, but DO NOT turn the key off! Leave it in RUN.
2. Wait 10 minutes or until the Theft System light glows steady instead of blinking.
3. Do not turn the key off, but start it immediately.
4. This should reset your Passlock system.

The other issue is that the BCM harness is known to corrode and will cause the passlock to fail and will lead to a no start. Check the BCM under the glove box, the bcm had somehow get's wet and the terminals corrode. Sand down all the corrosion that you could and put the bcm back into place and the car should started up fine and worked normally if done right. ONLY DO THIS IF YOUR SECURITY LIGHT STAYS SOLID AND DOES NOT RESET FROM THE ABOVE INSTRUCTIONS.

Thank you for using fixya and keep us posted.

2004 Alero. Car turns over, but won't start. Security light blinks.


Hey jonce17....I had the same problem, and my Alero sat in my driveway for 2 days. I looked online for the solution, and I found out how to bypass the security. After it won't start and the security light is blinking, turn the ignition to the on position. Leave it there till the security light stops blinking and stays on (usually takes 9 to 10 minutes). Then turn ignition to off position and start it like normal. This happens to me about once every couple of months. Hope this helps....
