Check the transmission range sensor, if you already serviced the torque converter and the ECU is fine, you may need to replace the gear box.

Ensure gear box fluid is at level.

you need to have your obd3 Diagnostic Trouble Codes read Most auto parts stores will do this for you. This will give you a better idea where to start.

SOURCE: gearbox fault light and cruise not available

The only thing that will cause a cruise control fault is a loose vacuum hose ussually on the breather hose coming from the valve cover in front to the throttle body. As for the remainder, shut off the car and restart to get you home and avoid the limp home mode. That in itself is an electronic fault in the ground system. Check you coils or replace them with a new set of plugs (autolite double platinum recommendes.) Clean any grounds you may have and then start you engine. You will notice there is no problem then. Run a diagnostic tool to see if there is any fault with grounded sensors like the O2 to keep that from happening again. Don't get the tranny replaced cause thats all the dealership wants to do and charge you $5k. Its not the actual cause. Good luck and let us know if there is anything else we can do here at fixya.

I doubt it.
If the engine is cranking, the starter is working.
If the engine will not start, you need to know if you have spark at the plugs, fuel pressure at the injectors, and normal compression.

Just turns off on it's own, Wait 60 sec. restart press pedel it dies.


This engine is electronically controlled so the first thing that must be done here is to have the systems control computer tested for fault codes and then do the proper diagnostics based on those codes.

2005 Pontiac sunfire wont start,


Well, you may have shot yourself in the foot by cranking the engine until you totally killed the battery. If there were any fault codes in the computer that could lead you to the cause of your engine not running, they are probably gone now, so the car will have to be diagnosed manually.

When engines stop running, they almost ALWAYS do it suddenly without any warning - so you are not alone. The problem here is that there are probably at least 300 different parts of your car that can be the cause of this. So, I am not surprized that you have been told that it COULD be so many different things. The fact-of-the-matter is that NOBODY can tell you with any certainty what is going on with your car without FIRST performing some diagnostics to eliminate certain possibilities.

The only way any of that is going to happen with any efficiency, is to get the battery charged back up first. NOTHING on your car works properly with a discharged battery. Only after the battery is charged can the other systems be tested.

"Stability Control Fail" light on.


first job is to check the part load and main beather hoses are ok the stability system light may be a false indicator if the engine has stalled best is to get fault codes out of the ecm with a code reader to help but air leaks on the engine inlet side can cause strange/seeming unrelated symptoms

Have a 97 VW Passat VR6, it died one day as the check engine light came on, it would run for a few minutes and then die, running shorter each time. Took it in to the shop and got the fuel pump replaced,...


You need to check fuel pressure at the fuel rail.if pressure is at spec. Check spark at the plugs. Also replace relay for fuel pump if it isn't working. Could be a bad new fuel pump. Pull the codes first.
