The display on my 2011 Holden Cruz flashes off and on when excelarating and when taking foot off the excelarater.

This is a repair that needs to be diagnosed as it may be a module issue. However there may be a couple of tests you can do 1st. It will require two people. Pop the bonnet/Hood and locate battery,whilst someone sits in vehicle ignition on if you have noticed dash lights also go on and off turn lights on. Now second person wiggle battery terminals (are they loose ?). does the fault occure. 2 pop the cover of the possitive battery terminal are any connections loose wiggle does fault occure. 3 Back to the main earth lead from battery give this a firm shake top end middle and also where it connects to the front pannel.Any thing found or did fault occure.It may be worthwhile turning ignition off and waiting 3 minutes disconnect neg battery terminal and clean all earth connections you can see should be 3 on left by battery and one on right by air con pipe.clean away any paint on threads or panel connections. Depending on model you may require to put in a radio code after battery is reconnected. Disconnecting the battery may also reset modules. If any other oddities occure such as a no start when battery is reconnected disconnect it again only disconnect at earth terminal and wait 15 minutes and reconnect. Like a phone or home computer things can freeze. Good luck

I owen holden cruze 2lt turbo ive replace the battery it runs for about a minute then shuts off wont start again

Hi Did you by any chance have ignition swithed on when you refitted new battery? If so disconnect negative terminal at battery for about 5 minutes all modules will go to sleep and reset (ign off) reconnect battery and try again. If that does not work you will need a fault code reader. It is advisable to connect a fault code reader 1st however as you have already disconnected the battery it has probabley lost any fault codes anyway,Good luck

Disconnect battery on 2003 nissan micra auto to clean and grease terminal, when reconnected car wont start all lights are on but wont turnover. Car was working perfect prior to disconnecting battery.

Just because lights are working does not mean you have a good enough connection to operate the starter motor. Try turning on headlamps, then try to crank it with someone looking at headlamps. If they dim badly or go out, recheck the battery terminal connections. Did you grease the areas that should make the connections? What grease did you use? Try cleaning connections with brake cleaner, sand or wire brush and reconnect without grease. If this works, grease the outside only to seal connections and prevent corrosion.

I replaced the themostat on my jeep and disconnected the temp sensor. I forgot to reconnect and started it. Now the service engine light is on. How can I get it off?

disconnect your negative battery terminal from your battery for thirty seconds.....make sure your sensor is plugged back in, then reconnect your battery terminal.That will do the trick unless you have another issue with your vehicle.I hope I could help..HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!

On returning yesterday from a 3 week holiday our 6 month old honda wont start . The recovery guy said the battery was flat and used jump leads to get it started . We took it for a drive , and find today...

Disconnect your battery (+ ) terminal for a minute or so, then reconnect. I've had where my vehicle came back from Florida, the night before, to the nice cold winter in Ontario Canada, and I had to disconnect battery to basically re-program all the sensors etc, to recognize difference in temperatures. After I did that, it started up fine, no more problems. I don't suspect your vehicle was exposed to any big difference in outside temperatures, but it costs nothing to try this, and I've seen stranger things happen.
