Question about 2005 Chevrolet Express

Open Question

Sometimes van won't start easily, I turn it over sometimes it tries to start sometimes nothing but if I just keep trying even though it seams like the battery is dead it will always start, then other times it will start every times for weeks or even months. It doesn't seem to run choppy before it stalls which is more rare but when it is really acting up it will repeatedly stall and fail to start easily. It seems like there is a kill switch or something. The only light that is coming up on the dash is a symbol with a picture of a car door with a lock attached to the side of it. Any idea what is causing this?

This is most likely a problem with your Passlock anti-theft system which is known issue with these cars. Passlock is a "passive" anti-theft system, which means that it will disable your ability to start the car if it thinks there is a problem. The three components that can cause this are: 1) Ignition Switch, 2) Ignition Cylinder, 3) Body Control Module (computer). The dealer is the only one who can solve this problem (unless you can bypass it, but it is not that easy). Estimated repair from most dealers is $800 and up.

SOURCE: Car keeps stalling when comes to a stop

Hi, you have to check your TCC switch, you can do this by disconecting the wire at the harness at your transmission, use a wiring schematic to verify the correct wire, when it is unplugged drive it around an if the problem doe not come back you know what to replace TCC solenoid. Do not drive on the highway with this disconnected though! Another possible problem may be you EGR valve. Let me know if you solved this problem.

Remove a battery terminal for 5 min. This will allow the computer to reset. Resecure the cable and try to start.

It is more than likely the fuel pump. I had replaced mine a few years ago, and it was doing the same thing. It is located in the tank and fairly easy to replace.

Ignition problems. Sometimes the car will start and sometimes it won't even try. I thought maybe holding the gear shifter up will help and sometimes putting it in neutral will work when nothing e


From what you describe it sounds like the shift linkage needs adjustment.Was any work done on the transmission,or did you bottom out recently? I don't think it's electrical.Also don't keep a lot of keys on your ignition key ring this can wear the key slot and also cause the erratic starts.Good luck.

Car won't start, seems to have power, all lights working. when I turn the key nothing happens. this only happens sometimes


Could be a bad alternator.. It may not be holding charge. Or your starter could have failed.

Though I've had the same problem and it was a dead battery in my vehicle. Had enough power, but to keep the car on..

Stuck eldorado key in DTS ignition now car won't start


Make sure your steering wheel isn't locked. Sometimes a key won't turn until you jiggle the wheel while trying to turn the key.

I was wondering if you could give me some things to check on my van won't start and we tried jumping it. The lights all come on with full charge . So I was wanting to know if there is a reset button...


if u unplug your battery for acouple hours it will reset youre ecu/cpu. (everything) does it turn over? or absolutly nothing? if nothing sometimes ur battery loses so many electrolytes it can't retain a charge therefore jumping won't help. new battery first step! local junkyards probably have a good battery for $20. Let me know if this helps.
