You need to check the fuel filter and the ignition switch...
it might be that the fuel isn't giving in a lot so the truck dies when you start it...
and the ignition could have went bad...thats why when you wiggle the key it starts right up...

If you have to wiggle switch for it to work then it or the wires connected to it need attention.

Act like out gas when you first start it


stalls (or misfires) tune up time, ever heard of a 60k mile service?
and get and injector balance test, sounds like they leak,
and the starts are doing so from the flooded state.

no crank.
repeat that again. the key switch has many posisitions
no (this era) car cranks, in the non run or start position so?
my guess, is the start position (spring loaded it is) is intermittant
and when starting you wiggle key , in the ST posistion and the starter
motor wakes up. this is a bad ignition switch, which love to go bad
with huge key rings, (heavy)
if car is A/T tranny, wiggle the shifter any time it dont crank
and, try starting in Neutral (fresh switch contacts there)

Stalls is a 2nd symptom and if the dash lights dont die.
then is not related to the ignition key switch.
that is the 12vdc power system is good and the EFI/engine has issues
try a tune up first. (its in the operators guide read that)

after tune up and drive 20-50 miles
now using any newer OBD2 scan tool scan the PCM.
got DTC'S? post them. DTC are ERRORS.

Turn on ignition jeep starts ok sometimes spedo and idicators wont work unless you move key adain while running


There could be some play in the ign switch allowing the voltage to be lost in certain position. Turn key to run position, do start engine. Turn on blower fan, turn signal, radio . Wiggle the key to see if they go off with key movement. If so replace electrical switch behind the key and tumbler

2000 GMC Envoy stalls while driving, shifting issues


Hi,
Yes, the Ignition switch is tied into the 'shift interlock system', and if the system is never really 'off' the codes may be related.

I'd REMOVE the remote start to ensure you're working from a 'clean slate' and get the ignition switch fixed....likely a dealer item, but call around auto parts stores. You may need to get it 'rekeyed' to match.

Also, a Jimmy and Envoy are identical - the Envoy is the higher trim line of the Jimmy: LINK

2000 honda cvic will not start but if you push on the it will try to start but will not stay running


Do you notice anything unusual with the dash lights when you turn the key on. All the warning lights should illuminate. If they do not but then come on as you start to rotate the key into the start position than you probably have a bad ignition switch.

If you turn the key to the start position and hold it there (only do this for a few seconds) will the car stay running until you let go of the key? Another clue that the ignition switch may be bad.

if you turn the key to the start position and the vehicle starts slowly let the key rotate back to the run position until the starter disengages. If the vehicle continues to run let go of the key. If the vehicle stalls than the ignition switch is definitely bad.

While I am driving, the car just stalls. It


If its an ignition switch problem the car will stall if you wiggle the key back slightly and if you quickly switch it back will it continue running. Otherwise i would replace the main fuel relay which sometimes fail when hot, then start working again when they cool down.

Wont stay running


This sounds like it is your ignition module not sending message o your computer letting know that the key is in the ignition and the car has been started. Replace the ignition module
