When i turned the key the car would not start the spedo fluttered but then 2 mins later the car started. 1 hour later the car would not start. today the car started very weakly and the temperature on the centre of the clocks has a mind of its own. minus 22 in august then nothing. is this a simple battery fault or smthing more sinister. Help! Thanks

GM cars have bad problem with security system. If you key turn light and will start other time will stick and need shaking to turn over and won't start just replace the key. Security system need some times to refresh the memory.
1.turn key ON for 10min.
2.turn key OFF 10sec.
3.turn ON 10min.
4.turn OFF 10sec.
5.turn ON 10min.
turn OFF ON and start
total of 30 min. to refresh the memory
the next step is more expensive and need some skills.
on top of the ignition switch is a sensor go bad
replace ignition switch with the sensor and do the learning process from step 1 to 5
to reset the pas-loc turn the to on position 10 to 15 min.then turn the key off for a few seconds,then start the car/if your security light is on do this like i said for 10 to 15 minutes.the light should go off,then turn the key off and wait a moment then start it,you dont have to wait the 1/2 hour out
You are losing oil pressure, this means your oil pump is probably out. Don't drive it anymore until you can get that repaired. It's shutting down because it's siezing up. You need the extra power to jump it because the piston rings and wall are sticking together, let it all cool down and the rings contract and loosens up. Allowing the engine to turn.
my 2006 pt cruiser won"t start. the light do come on but it will not turn over just a clicking sound. i drove it for about an hour then went back to it 30 mins later and it didn"t start. just clicking sound.
