'94 olds 88 error code 'hot...a/c disabled' -- Car shuts off
Car will suddenly get error code 'hot...a/c disabled' and then shuts off while driving. Mechanic is completely stumped. His diagnostic equipment flags the throttle position control but he says that won't solve this issue. Can anyone help. Frustration running high at this point.
That is likely a ground problem.I had the same issue a few days ago with a customers car.See my response to another individual who has the same problem.It also did away with the hot ac-disabled problem and no more stalling.This might not solve your problem but I would seriously try it.

If your vehicle still drives ok it may just be a 'fault' - an error code that just appears for no real reason (it does happen..). In that case you will have to get a mobile mechanic or a workshop .. or somebody who has hand-held diagnostic equipment - to reset the error code
The abs light means your anti-lock brake system has detected a fault and probably isn't working. Your check engine light probably came on at the same time. Get a mechanic or someone with a car computer code reader to connect to the diagnostic port under the dash and read off the error codes to diagnose your problem better.
$500.00 is a pretty steep price for an oil change!
If this is a gas cap issue, be aware that simply removing and replacing the cap will not immediately fix it. Most of the loose cap errors will only reset after the vehicle is driven for a period of time, not right as soon as you replace the cap. Speaking of replacing the cap, if the original has a bad seal, you aren't fixing anything doing what you've done.
Get a new gas cap first, then give it a while driving to see if it clears the error.
Check engine light means emissions control system failure. I would only rely on Honda to properly diagnose this and replace component failure with Honda part. The ck engine light was probably reset when your mechanic replaced the crankshaft sensor, and in time, came back on cause the problem has not been corrected.
It could be a number of things,but from my own past experiences,it's most likely the fuel filter. Fuel filters are normally inexpensive to buy and have changed.
I have had cars shut off by themselves from over-heating,timing belts,etc.
My van once started doing that simply because the gas cap was not screwed on properly...that one had me stumped for a few days...it was because of the sensors.
I had a car that shut off constantly because the heat shield was wrecked and oil was dripping onto my solenoid.
So as I said,it could be a number of things,ranging from inexpensive to expensive. Your best bet is to take it in to a mechanic and have a diagnostic run on it.
PROBLEM:car does not always start or car shuts down while driving.SOLUTION:replace module!the 1994 LeSabre has two options the ECO-1 or the OBDM-1.My LeSabre was repaired by a master mechanic,who also replaced the computer because it was fried.My mechanic used the OBDM-1 module and replaced the computer haven't had a problem since.
