Question about 2005 Chevrolet Uplander

1 Answer

Sometimes when I start my 2006 uplander it does not start, these signs light up on the dash, battery, oil, engine check, brake light etc, (there is no clicking sounds to be heard ) but if I turn the key to off then restart the van then it works fine, the mechanic looked at it today, obviously the problem did not happen there, he said it may be the starter, Could it be another problem instead, all other checks battery etc were fine

First of all make sure all your battery connections are Clean and Tight. If they are and all your dash lights come on and its not starting But its cranking over Your anti theft alarm may have gotten activated. You may have to leave your Key in the On position for 20 minutes to reset the alarm. Not cranking just in the on position, Now if its not Cranking and your hearing a clicking sound it may be your starter. I have sometimes tapped on the stater with a deadblow hammer and had someone crank it over Making sure your in park foot on brake and being EXTREMLY Carefull that you are not going to run someone over. If that don't get you going Get back to me we can do some more trouble shooting. Get that thing going for you. Thanks, Bear001

Are you sure its the starter? did you try it in neutral? could be park neutral switch, or ignition switch, or if its a standard shift maybe it has a switch on clutch that it has to be depressed to start and its bad. As far as jump starting you cross the maine or big post on starter to small or little post on starter to do that, on a v6 starter it on the right side under exhaust manafold, and i think its on the same side on a 4 cyl.

If the battery has gone dead, it could cause the security system to go into full lock-up mode. If it has locked up the accessories will work after the battery is charged back up , but the power to the starter will be cut off and it wont turn over. You need to do the 30 minute learn procedure. A GM dealer will print it out for you and you can do it yourself. It's very simple if you follow the procedure exact. hope this helps and good luck.

It illuminates signs in dushboard.what could be the problems

first check your battery and cables... a dying battery and/ or corroded, loose cables may be the cause all those problems

If you don't have the owner's manual, you can get a PDF file of it from a USA ford website: Google search 2005 ford focus owners manual

The battery light means bad battery, alternator, or wires

Oil light means low oil level, bad oil sensor or bad wire to sensor

Abs light, check brakes or wiring to speed sensors or abs computer

Orange check engine light, a sensor or other electrical part has failed or wire broken to that sensor. You will need an obd2 scanner to find out trouble codes!

But, if ALL OF THE LIGHTS ARE ON while car is running, you really need to check and make sure the battery and charging system is OK FIRST

My 2007 Honda Pilot won't start, what Might it be?

Does the car turn over at all? If not, and the battery is more than 3 years old, my guess would be the battery needs replacing. Check the battery connections. Remove the battery cables, one at a time and use a wire brush to remove any corrosion between the terminal and the battery post.

Could this be the battery?

This is a bad earth connection . Run a new cable from the battery to the engine or transmission , then run a cable from the engine or transmission to the body . No more trouble.

2006 uplander cooling system diagram

Is your coolant boiling over? How hot does the engine get in degrees F? Not counting the temp gage,any signs of overheating? Sometimes when you open the cooling system, you get air in the system that can effect temp gage. You could use a non-contact infrared temp gun on the engine, then compare reading to temp gage. The readings should be close. When it is overheating, are the radiator fan/s on?
Can you check coolant flow through the radiator? I haven't checked to see if you have radiator cap? Sometimes on a cool engine, I remove the thermostat, hook everything up, make sure coolant is full. The coolant flow is instant when you crank or start it because you don't have to wait for engine to warm-up, no thermostat.

I have a '06 Chevrolet Uplander. I changed the battery and now nothing works but the dome light,brake lights and radio. The dash computer keeps saying service engine soon,service ABS system and service...

You can reset the computer by turning the key to the on position. Don't start the engine. Press the gas pedal to the floor and release it all the way. Press all the way to the floor and release. Press all the way to the floor and release. After the third time it will reset the computer.
PLEASE RATE! Check the 4 thumbs up.
Thanks! Have a GREAT DAY!

No there is a brake switch to turn on the brake lights when you step on the brake pedal. It is located near the rake pedal under the dash. It has more then likely failed.

Ford Focus 2000cc Estate, Very difficult to start when engine is cold. will run great when finally started, Tried de-clutching, waiting for Dash lights to go out, Throtle to the Floor, Etc. Can you please...

Possibly the battery is a little weak (have battery load checked at auto parts supplier) if engine turns over slowly when cold start. Run 10-30 oil or 5w-30 if you live where it gets really cold. The engine computer may not be setting the cold-start routine. If the check engine light is on, rent a scanner, read any code(s), and pursue to repair(s). The throttle should not be pushed at all when starting.
