Question about Hummer H3

2 Answers

I have a 2008 H3 Alpha. This past December I started having problems with it randomly not starting. I was told it was a security issue, a battery issue, and other things. I took it into a local certified Hummer technician. I've been in the shop 6 different times trying to figure out why it does this. First they replaced the battery, then the ignition, followed by a computer module. It still was having this issue. They said the computer was not detecting a problem, but they would replace the starter relay. Thats when it finally wouldn't start when it was in their parking lot. They hooked up the computer, which detected that there was no or very little communication between the starter relay and the starter. Then they replaced the starter along with a belt. For one month after this is started fine. Until the last 2 days. The first day it hesitated to start. And the second day, it would not start at all. It only does this in colder weather. I never have this problem in the summer. Most of the time it will start after letting sit for another 10 minutes. Is there any advice you can give me? My warranty is up in September. So I am worried that the real problem will not be fixed before then.

Have you done an ol fashion tuneup-new plug wires and test coil and distributer area--also hows the fuel delivery system--never replace parts till u know the solution-so hook it up to a tech II which shows a data stream to target the problem

Why will my 2008 hummer H3 door locks with key but will not unlock with key. the key will not turn to unlock

The lock assembly in the door is faulty. It gets tricky since Hummers are no longer in production. Changing the door lock cylinders will get you a different key than the ignition. Any GM dealer should be able to get you the parts.
