  • • If you let it set for 20 minutes it will start and run perfectly.
    • It does not put on the check engine light or any other light. Also no flashing Security light either
    • The engine cranks over just fine.
    • Does not put any codes in the computer.
    • It does not matter if it’s the first start of the day or the last, or if it was in the garage or outside.
    • It does not matter if its winter or summer.
    • When you try to start it will only start for a second then quit.
    • It has the 1.8 L engine.
    • It happened for the first time about 3 years ago and then it was about 6 months before it happened, but it’s been getting more frequent.

    Please help

    Good morning Joe,

    We're sorry to hear that your Vibe is giving you some troubles upon start up. Do you have any plans to get this checked out by a dealership at all?
