When I jump the codes out while encountering the same problem, it tells me the system is running too lean. more specifically, the 02 sensor, which is part of the fuel system. it most definitely is not the ignition switch, if you turn the switch and get fuel and spark it's done it's work. always start with the obvious and easy to check and go from there.

    upon further inspection, it would see the cause of my particular problem was carbon build up withing the plugs. once I removed the coil pack and replaced it, the car started no problem again. this is with the 2.2 ecotec engine, try that

Isuzu 4jx1 crank pulley not turning after replaced cylinder head. Is it timing issue? If say so, how to set the timing right with crank and cam shaft?


it sounds like u have something stuck in the engine ,u should be able to turn the shaft manually.so tear it back down and look for something in there or something stuck.dont try to force the engine to turn it over.if it just wont start and does turn over ,set the timing by putting the cylinder on #1 and make sure your timing marks line up.

2008 Chevy Impala- codes (p0300, p0011, p0641) & the; traction control & abs & check engine dash lights on at different times. Started as engine dying while driving but would start after cooling down with...


is the battery at 12.6vcd rested? or way low, BINGO 1
is the battery at 12.3vdc to 15v running, no, bingo 2.
the EFI system on all cars will not run right with very low battery volts.
will not.
so it dont start at all now, but does it CRANK fast and robustly
if the car can not crank it surely can not start
my M/T cars can be push starter, gravity started and jumper started
or normal started .
so..... tell about the starter first.

"key sometime not turn the ignition either."
elaborate that? do you have like 100 keys on a ring
like what kills all GM cars and is in the news right now.
for massive recall (NOT TURNS or turns SELF now?)
huge keys rings wreck all cars made ignitions ALL.
not just GM they are getting punished for huge keys and all do that.
see the recall?
get the car fixed for free iif the key fails, now is your moment in time.

turn on the news see the GM headline?>
it's on WSJ every day for a week.
are you DIY?
are you with tools, meters? even a $10 walfart meter?
yes/no/
if yes. you can fix many things wrong. if motivated.

1:check all fuse, test with for 12vdc on both sides key on.
2: make sure all things are dead key off but head lights do work key off if turned on this is law based.
3: are any cluster lights on key off and removed.
4: check lamps inside car and outside, any stuck on?
5: does engien crank fast?
6: does the CEL dash lamp turn on key on before cranking.
same for charge and oil, they glow as self tests. do they?
or they too stick on?



????
on at different times.what times.???????
when any engine stalls, zero RPM, the cluster goes to self test.
it does that. and is not warnings. at all.
all cars do that. it's a feature.
at keyon or stalls.
RTM read the operators guide it tells you that fact.
