Might want to check that the "fake" tape reels in the adapter turn freely. If they don't, then that's probably your problem.
Like Shifty said, that would be a defective adapter.
The weird part is this- when I run into this situation I can turn the key back and forth rapidly from the OFF position to the START position, back and forth and sometimes this will get the car to start. Other times though this has no effect (its about a 50/50 split). If I can't get the car to start using the rapid and repeated key turning move, all I have to do to get the car to start is let it sit for ~20 minutes. When I wait 20 minutes, the car starts up, first turn of the key, no problem. WTF?!?!
The one caveat I would add is that I did replace the starter with a refurbished cheap-o unit about 1.5 years ago, but the starting problem started only about 6 months ago.
Any ideas?? Could it be some sort of computer chip with a timer in it or something? Is the ignition switch bad? What do you think? and how can i best diagnose what it going on?
Thanks in advance,
My engine light and sercurity light are on. When Im driving (when I can) the gears are rough trying to change. (feels more like Im driving a manual) I had just filled my tank up and it said low fuel. Some times it will start sometimes it wont. One time it started and the key wasnt even in it (and Ive already changed the ignition 2 times) Someone told me it could be upper transmission module with the "communication penns" but no one seems to have those tools. Sometimes my car says power steering but it works and when it doesnt say power steering the steering doesnt work. My hazard lights will go crazy the headlights pretty much anything with what might seem like wiring will go haywire and Ive had all wiring checked. When its in park or at a stop light its making a weird clicking sound by the gears. If Anyone has a new idea as to what this could be please let me know besides getting a new car. I havent had a car now for 6 months and kinda becoming a pain.
can you help me repair mine ,or direct me to the source so i can fix mine asap , now i sometimes smell a burninf electrical smell on and off so getting worried ,i dont want to loose my 1999 nissan quest
thanks mike or reply to [email protected]
When I attempt to start, there is:
- no "click"
- no noise whatsoever from the starter
- no changes in dials on the dashboard
- dashboard check battery light turns on
- A/C, stereo, headlights, etc. turn on
This has happened several times - always on hot days when the car has been sitting out in the sun. It will consistently fail to start if I attempt to start repeatedly. I've had success getting the car to by opening the hood and letting the engine "air out", when it's not particularly hot out, or leaving it for a few hours and returning in the evening when it is cooler.
Yesterday, it failed to start right after I pumped gas in the afternoon. I was able to get it started by waiting a few minutes with the hood open.
I've had the car for five months and never had any issues starting in the winter.
It's 13 years old and has about 110,000 miles on it. The battery is newish.
My problem is with my 2007 saturn hybrid vue, I've had the problem before and a previous dealership fixed it... The first time it happened around 60k miles...it started again at about 94k...it's now at 99k, and the dealership put on a 1,000 miles and said the problem wouldnt reappear, three days later and only 50 miles on my part and the problem is back. The problem is as follows.
While driving I have random lights on my dashboard flicker on and off. I get almost every light except the check engine light flickering on and off...The ABS the emergency brake the TCM...the security light flickers on and is the only one that then remains on for the rest of the drive.
This stuff has happened but seems to come and go depending on when they return the car...I've also had all of my gauges zero out... I've had it go into a "power saving mode"...where I couldn't accelerate very fast. I also had one time where I stopped at a red light and the car turned itself off instead of doing the normal hybrid stop...and then restarted itself like nothing happened while me and my friend stared at it confused...
The dealership seems to have no idea what is happening...they say they have replaced all the modules and checked all the wires...
Please help if you can, thanks.
