I think it is related to the GM security system. If your ignition key has the little chip or resistor in it, then this could be the problem. The system is unreliable and stops working without any warning.When it malfunctions, it shuts down the starter. If that is in fact what has happened, the dealership will want $1000 to fix it, unless, of course you still have warranty. The following website has a bypass system that works. Visit the website and read about the problems with the security system and the bypass: http://newrockies.ca/vatsbypass.

Faulty Reading? Brake Fluid Level, ABS and tracking system warning light


If your hub (wheel bearing) is starting to go bad, the sensor can fault as well for the ABS (stabilitrack, etc) as it is all inside the hub assembly. Whatever the issue, once it is resolved, the light will go out. A scan should tell you which wheel is throwing you the code.
The instrument cluster can be taken out pretty easily (2 trim screws and 4 on cluster itself I think) and the bulbs are easy to put out and replace. My cluster was replaced under warranty for 1 burnt out bulb and got a reman that crapped out after a year now out of warranty.

How do i know when my alternator is going bad


If the batt light is on, the alternator is not charging the battery.
If the battery won't hold a charge, it could be failing.
If you are having a specific problem with your PT Cruiser or Mustang, let us know what it is.

My OnStar navigation no longer gives voice prompts for turns and such. Was working fine, radio mutes down but then no voice prompts play. Just started in middle of a drive. How do I get the audio voice...


I was told by on star that if you leave the drivers door open for 90 seconds and then lock all of the doors and wait until the next day the system will reset itself. I know this sounds like smoke and mirrors but it does work. Please let me know. Hope this helps.

We just purchased an 08 tahoe with 11,000 miles. When you turn the ignition off and then back on the dvd player starts back at the beginning. Is this normal? thanks


Yes, while there are a few dvd players that keep memory with power off, GM protects the computer and battery by keeping other essential memory functions only. This includes powering the onstar system, keeping radio memory, holding enough charge for any alarm and remote door unlock, computer memory etc.

Radio has no sound. dsiplay works. onstar phone


I had the same problem with my 04 Suburban, sound and then no sound from anything (radio, on star, door chime, etc). The dealership thought it was the radio, so they put a new radio in. A day later the same problem. It turned out to be the amplifier under the center console. Everything is working with no problem for over a year.
