I had this happen to me and it turn out to be a couple of things. first it was a bad coil the ones towards the firewall pull the caps off to see if any of the post are rusty and the other thing was a bad converter. i have a 3.1 6cyl. engine and had someone hook up a meter to it to find out what was wrong.

Why did car die while driving on Interstate and will not start back up


When the engine dies all the lights on the dash should come ! It's when the engine is still running an those lights come is when you need to worry ! You need to check for spark an fuel pressure. If no spark probably an ignition module , crankshaft position sensor or distributer module , what ever ignition system it has. If there is spark spray some carburetor clean into the engine , if it try's to start you have a fuel delivery problem , fuel pump , relay ! No Start Diagnostic Basics EricTheCarGuy

Engine turns over but will not start.


Hi there:

When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.


Just scanned the computer and send us code number find it.

Hope helps.

Help! Alternator warning light is on? I would like to seek some helpful advise with regards to the Alternator warning light when the ignition is initially switched on and go out when the engine is...


I can't say 100%, but as far as I know, there are a number of lights that come on when starting a car. The alternator light is one of them. Is it possible that you never noticed it before? On my car, the check engine light comes on, the engine trouble light comes on, the seat belt light comes on, the air bag light comes on, the abs brakes light comes on and there are probably others.
I think what you are seeing is normal.
Do you have any problems? Is the battery dying? Is the car stalling? If not, you are probably OK.

Buick lesabra 2001 dies while driving, voltage light comes on.


hello, you may need to have engine tuned up, have choke checked out, usually all the lights,bells and whistles will come on after it dies.because you are having to start engine again, when first starting engine, see what all lights comes on, then when engine dies it should be the same lights coming on when first starting engine, thats pretty normal ,have all filters checked out like gas filter, air filter etc

I had a wire connector on the front of the engine that had so much tension, the wires broke. I didn't notice until a wet day when the car wouldn't start (and the Check Engine light was on). (The error code was related to an Emissions error.) The connector is located on the engine, front, just left of center. Hope this helps!

1992 accord hard starts,engine light, steam off hood in rain


The check engine light comes ON when the cars computer(the ECU) notices any kind of electrical problem in car.In some cases the check engine light comes on then turns off.In that case the exact error is not getting confirmed so this happens.But once the problem gets confirmed the engine light will remain permanently ON till the problem gets solved.In this case i suggest you to get your car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free.In case in the car scanning,if any error code is retrieved then you can check which part is faulty as per the error code.In case if no error code is retrieved then you can continue driving,till you get any confirmed indication. ---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
