Now, yesterday my boyfriend had the car. It’s cuts off after being on and driving lucky he was at a stop sign. The car did everything I explained above but this time it wouldn’t start. After pushing it to safety and waiting 30 minutes to an hour it again started right back up, I drove it home (about 5 miles) it shuts off again. Marking a total of 2 yesterday alone.
I took it to my mechanic this morning and he literally has no idea. He wants to keep it for a cold start tomorrow but I don’t think it’s gonna make a difference considering it’s not a starting problems. It’s starts fine, it’s the random “shutting off". When this happens, the radio works, the heat works, everything works but it really not start. I tried the resetting of the system leaving it in the "on" position for 10 minutes and repeating.
Since this is my only car and I do have to get back and forth to work for the next months, I’m down to playing Russian roulette. I really only drive it about 10 miles back and forth to work. Tonight after work, I pulled in and again it did everything I explained but this time, I put my car in neutral and switch to the "on" position, I waited 30 seconds and the car started right up but the theft system light was lit up. It wasn’t blinking at all, It stayed on until, I cut the car completely off and restarted it.
After reading similar posts here, I wanna sum it up to an faulty ignition switch causing the theft system to think it’s being stolen. I’m not 100% sure but I do not know what else it could be considering everything is new, the starter, the battery, the fuel pump and injectors, the alternator.
Thank you for your time.
have the same problem?
