Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery must have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Fuel tank empty
11. Fuel tank contaminated with ethanol sludge.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, or clogged filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Faulty fuel pump.
15. Faulty pressure regulator.
16. Faulty or clogged fuel injectors.
17. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.

SOURCE: security system/battery

plz check the following and update me
1. Fuel (To be exact proper air/fuel ratio, normally it is about 14/1)
2. Spark (in appropriate moment)
3. Proper timing (the valves should open and close only in appropriate time)
4. Compression in the cylinders (Normal compression is 120 - 170 psi. The engine won't start if the compression is lower than 70 - 80 psi.)

SOURCE: what would cause the horn to start honking on by

The screws behind the steering wheel, holding the horn switch and air bag assembly are too tight. When it gets hot in the car the contacts touch and the horn sounds. By backing off those screws one half turn each should stop the problem. I hope you have the torx drivers and special tips you might need for this tight spot. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Horn wont honk. Fuse is good and horn honks when

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to follow factory Airbag disarming protocol can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury or death.

Whenever the murano is idle and the engine is in neutral after a time it shuts off and gives a hard start It alo does this in traffic and especially when it gets hot it just shuts off.

the next time it shuts down check to see if fuel pump is running. if not. check the fuel pump relay, it may be getting hot and shutting down pump. a malfunctioning temperature sensor will often send incorrect information to the vehicle's on-board computer. As a result, when the vehicle reaches a normal operating speed the sensor may relay an incorrect signal to the computer that the engine is overheating resulting in engine shutdown. The vehicle will not be able to start again until the engine has completely cooled and will need to have the sensor replaced in order to prevent the recurrence of the problem. in some cases a bad thermostat will cause this problem also. good-day !

Sometimes when I press the starter button, my car with crank for a little bit, then won't start but the car is still on. I normally press the starter button again to turn off the car, then press it again....

These issues can both be solved through programming. The crank time needs to be extended and the door locks (may) need to be set to double pulse. Can you unlock the doors by pressing the unlock button twice within one second?

Please read all the way through to familiarize yourself with the process before beginning.

Let's try the programming; you will need the vehicle key and the remote. The control/programming switch is located in the antenna on the windshield.

Turn the key on then off; press and hold the control button on the antenna to select the menu. One honk of the horn/flash of the parking lights indicates menu one(1). Now, press and release the button five (5) times (door lock pulses), then press and hold the button. While holding the control button on the antenna, press the lock button on the remote once. You should hear two horn honks/flashes from the parking lights. The system is now set for double pulse unlock. DO NOT RELEASE THE CONTROL BUTTON.

We will now advance to the third menu; release the control button, immediately press and hold the control button. After three seconds the system will begin to advance to the next menu. You will hear two horn honks/flashes from the parking lights. Continue to hold the control button to advance to the third menu. You will hear three horn honks/flashes from the parking lights. Now, press and release the control button three times, then press and hold the control button. While holding the control button, press and release the lock button on the remote. You should hear two horn honks/flashes from the parking lights. Two flashes/horn honks is .8 seconds cranking time. Release control button. Turn ignition on to exit programming/learn routine. Test the system.

If after testing the system , you require a longer cranking time; re-enter the programming/learn routine, menu three, option three and press the lock button on the remote once to advance to one(1) second cranking time.

The programming/learn routine exits if the ignition is turn on, the control button is pressed too many times or there is no activity for 30 seconds.

Ford factory installed remote start I open door and truck shuts off what can I do to program this so it works like it should

Follow the following procedures for 2010 Ford vehicles with the door open shut down enabled:

1. Locate the override button and LED. On my escape the override button was at the bottom of the plastic by the driver's knees. The LED is attached to the harness behind this plastic, under the steering column. It is easier to find it once it's on.

2. Open the driver's door, press and hold the brake, turn the vehicle on.

3. While holding the brake, press and hold the override button, after 10-15 seconds the horn will honk 3 times. Let go of the button and the brake.

4. Push the override button until you hear the horn honk 5 times.

5. Push the brake until the horn honks 7 times, this is the "door open shut down" selection. The LED should be on.

6. Push the start button on the Key Fob. Do NOT hold it down, or it will reset everything.

7. The LED should now be off.

8. Shutdown the vehicle, and test it out.

Note: This procedure can be used to change the auto shut-off from 10 to 15 minutes as well. Instead of going to where the horn honks 7 times, go to where it honks 3 times, and turn the LED on.

2004 yukon horn problem

obviously there is a short in the system probably in the wiring and likely it is exposed wiring. Motion,moisture, and heat would then effect the wiring and cause it too short out at different times and for varied lengths of times. driving your car would cause it to get hot under the hood, so after awhile the wiring shorts and your horn honks. Turning on and off the system causes motion and if it is stuck in a particular position when it shorts than the horn continues to honk
