Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

Not starting.... My van won't start... on saturday ( 4 days ago) while driving- all the lights came on- the ones on the dash... the radio and AC went out... we continued to drive and then every thing started working normally. We got home and it was fine. We had the battery checked- the guy said it was low at first but then started running normal...and they tested the alternator too- and that tested fine... now today it won't start. no lights come on, and the van doesnt even turn over or try to start... what could this be?

I have a 2009 Jeep Liberty Unlimited. All my dash warning lights came on, wipers start wiping, head lights dim, all my gauges shut off, radio comes on and off but the vehicle continues driving fine.

I suggest you try one of those instant download manuals. My nephew bought one for me when my car broke and we could fix it all by ourselves with the manual costing $10. This website reliable-store.com is very good for this.
?Try it.

Our 1998 Ford windstar has went all EXORCIST in dash board etc.


at the minimum, since you mentioned all the idiot lights coming on, your alternator is fried. have someone put in a new alternator. if it's still acting up, have someone go over the computer.
