07 impala starts but dies and not start again


Normally Shifting out of gear in motion wont damage much unless you revved the engine really high for an extended period. Shifting into park while in motion will make a ratcheting sound, but usually wont hurt anything. However the act of doing so may have tripped a fault in the ECU that makes the car think it needs to be in limp mode. It did just that and got you home albeit running roughly.

Have someone remove the NEGATIVE battery cable. leave it disconnected for a few minutes, then reconnect and jump start the car if the battery is too low. doing so should reset the ECU and restore normal operation. If drivable, proceed to a brand name parts store. they usually will reset your ECU codes for free. IF all is well this should fix the probelm. If something was indeed damaged, you wont likely be able to drive the car.

I have a 1990 Volvo 240 recently the car started to die at random times while driving. When it dies all the dash lights come on can't start it for a bit afterwards. I replaced the battery and it seemed...


  • This is classic of your alternator going bad. Sometimes, when it first begins to go bad it will function on and off. Soon it just stops charging the battery all together. The battery has one function and that is to start the car. Then the alternator is ran by the belt and charges the battery and in effect runs the car. The reason for the lights coming on is the power fail in the car.
  • Buying a new battery worked for a short time because the fresh battery ran the car but with no alternator to charge the battery the car soon died again.
  • The fix is to replace the alternator. Do it soon or even that new battery will go bad from being drained so much.

P1000 problem loss of power after 10 minutes


P1000 is not really a fault code, if there are no there are no other codes stored then perform the following:

Disconnect the positive terminal on the battery, hold the terminal to the chassis for 2 - 3 seconds, this defuses the ecu and drains stored data thus clearing P1000.

Now wait 10 minutes.

Then reconnect battery.

Start car *without touching gas pedal*

Leave car idling for a good 5 - 10 minutes then jump in and go on a minimum 12 mile drive, you will need to perform a few normal driving conditions, fast, slow, stop, pull away etc so just a normal day to day trip to the town would suffice.

Hopefully this will sort it, if not report back

It doesn't have a short. Shorts blow fuses. It has high parasitic drain. On a cad it might be hard to find but not impossible. Do you own an ammeter?

1997 Toyota Camry Lost All Battery Power


I would check your main battery terminals to make sure they are not loose. Sometimes, even when you have reconnected them properly they may not be tight enough to make a good electrical connections...I have seen it a million times and I have also been a victim myself :) If you shake them and they swivel at all that may be your problem. Sometimes another way to tell is if you can move them around and the car starts one time, then later that day or sometime down the road the car wont start again this is a sign that the connection is your problem. You should definately try this first, then go from there.

Audi 1996 A6 wagon - battery drains if car not used for 4-5 days


unhook the battery completely and see if it will start after a couple of days. if it does you probably have a wire stripped and grounded out. all you need to do is install a power disconect key in the car, and you wont have any more problems.
