it has something to do with the passcode security feature on the car. To fix it you leave the key in the run position for about 10 minutes unitl the securtiy light shuts off and then start the car normally. This could be one of 2 things either the key is worn or the passcode module is shot. Get a new key before you go and spend $300 on the parts. There are more answers on www.automotive forums.com If it does not start turn the key all the way to off position then turn it to the on position, at this point the security light will start flashing for between 10-15 min. Once it stops flashing or goes away turn the key all the way off then try to start it. If passcode locks you out , security light will be on. I don't think that the engine will even turn over. It could also be fuel pump. When you turn key to on position , fuel pump in gas tank should run a couple seconds (hear a hum).
If you run your cars gas tank to almost empty alot, the electric fuel pumps fail because the fuel acts as a coolent. Also check the fuse block. The fuse block on my son's car was removed and it was found to be very corroded. The engine would turn over, but not start. The ODB II reader could not read any codes. The problem was worse when it rained. There must have been a leak that caused water to corrode the fuse block.
battery is shot?
timing chain or belt
my 2002 alero is missing and has no power what could b wrong
I had a similar problem turns out the Alternator was bad.
This could be the voltage regulator. Both the positive from the battery and the starter would be connected to it.
It could possibly be the timing belt. Chevrolet recommends replacing it every 60,000 miles.
mine did the same thing when the timing belt broke
you have either no gas or no spark maybe both
It is either getting no fuel or no spark.
My sunroof quit working too as you described. Turns out it was the overhead switch that went bad. Had mine replaced for $95 installed. Works like a charm now!
that's hard to say it could be as easy as battery or something like your starter theres a couple things it hard to tell with out being there
Have the alternator checked out.
Do a fuel pressure check. I had the same problem and it was my fuel pump.
chances are the battery is out of wack or the engine could be flooded
Yes.. They find out they are brother and sister in the first one I think, but in City of Glass it turns out to be wrong, and they start DATING!! YAY!
Apparently not...But I could be wrong.
Probably a dead battery.
try replacing the ignition coil
If it turns over but seems to buck & choke you may have the wires on in the wrong order. Did you do them one at a time? Does it try to start?
No. It is highly dangerous and could cause an explosion and serious injury.
If the car won't start it is usually the battery, starter or could be the altenator. What are the symptoms when you try to start it, is there any power?
Steering rack bad?
If nothing works, turns on, your battery is dead.
It could be a dead battery.
check your coil pack.
