Renault trafic wont start...engine warning light flashing


The light and the word stop should be sending you a clear message . The engine hard starting and sluggish is also sending a message and if you do not heed the message and have the fault codes read and the problem fixed then the next message may be replace the engine or gear box . The light is there --not to be an annoyance ---but to inform you that something drastic is going wrong and it needs urgent attention.

My warning light came on after i got gas/my


Not sure why the security light did not come on. But I'd start with the warning light.

There is a pressure sensor that is affected by the gas cap. If the cap was not on properly it will sense it and trigger the waring light.

Unscrew the gas cap and reinstall. Drive for a while and the light should go out.

Sometimes the computer will not clear the code. If this happens disconnect the negative terminal on the battery. Leave for half an hour or so and reconnect. This can delete the code sometimes.

WARNING LIGHTS KEEP COMING ON!!!!


Sounds like the main computer has gone bad on you. You can try to have it re-flashed, it might fix the problem.

1990 Buick LeSabre cutting off, getting no spark, 30 mins starts


Replace crank sensor. Next time it cuts off pour or spray water on it, to cool it down and if car starts that is what it is. I did this to get my car home to fix it. Next thing I would look at is the coil module if crank sensor does not fix it.
