1996 c1500 pickup cranks but wont start when hot starts fine when cool
If it cranks and cranks then finally starts and slowly picks up speed you may have a leaking fuel pressure regulator, unfortunately this truck has an injection system know as the "spider" and everything including the regulator is under the upper intake manifold so you can't see it leak. GM makes a kit that replaces the spider and poppet setup with real injectors and I think it comes with a regulator. Do this, find the injection test port left rear of the air intake remove the plastic cap then have someone turn the ignition switch on to prime the system then press the schraeder valve and notice how much gas sprays out, next prime the system again but this time wait 5 minutes then press the schraeder again and the spray should be the same if there's little or no fuel coming out replace the regulator and I advise changing the injection system over. I hope this helps. Take care.

Chev cruize 2012 no ignition power
This vehicle is controlled by the BCM -body control module . The ignition switch is a low voltage input to the BCM , the BCM is called the power mode master . The BCM will energize relays an send messages over the serial data network to other control modules on the vehicle as to what power mode it wants set. Complex way of doing things but that's how GM does it . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop.
The body control system consists of the body control module (BCM), communications, and various input and outputs. Some inputs, outputs and messages require other modules to interact with the BCM. The BCM also has discrete input and output terminals to control the vehicle's body functions. Battery positive voltage is provided to the BCM from the BCM fuse in the underhood fuse block. The module has two grounds at G 202 as well as one directly to the vehicle battery. The BCM is wired to the GMLAN High speed serial data buss and the GMLAN Low speed serial data buss and acts as a gateway between them. If the BCM does not communicate the vehicle will not start due to the inability of the engine/powertrain control module (ECM/PCM) and vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) control module to communicate without the BCM providing the gateway function.
Power Mode Master
This vehicle body control module (BCM) functions as the power mode master (PMM). The ignition switch is a low current switch with multiple discrete ignition switch signals to the PMM for determination the power mode that will be sent over the serial data circuits to the other modules that need this information, and so the PMM will activate relays and other direct outputs of the PMM as needed. Refer to Power Mode Description and Operation for a complete description of power mode functions.
The body control module (BCM) in this vehicle functions as a gateway or translator. The purpose of the gateway is to translate serial data messages between the GMLAN high speed buss and the GMLAN low speed buss for communication between the various modules. The gateway will interact with each network according to that network's transmission protocol.
One example of this necessary communication is the communication between the engine/powertrain control module (ECM/PCM) which is high speed serial data and vehicle theft deterrent (VTD) control module which is low speed serial data. If these modules can not exchange information, the vehicle will not start.
All communication between the BCM and a scan tool is on the High speed GMLAN serial data circuits. A lost communication DTC typically is set in modules other than the module with a communication failure.

How does a 2007 Honda Ridgeline work with a plow on it.is it worthwhileto do it.
I don't know and I expect few would be able to answer your question. The British Land Rover was originally designed to be capable of all the work around a small holding or small farm for the hard-up post war farmers - including pulling a plough.
I think the success depends more on the type of plough than the towing vehicle. These days a tractor has a three-point hitch and hydraulics (plus electronics) to control the plough. The type of plough to be towed in the way you suggest will have more in common with a horse plough that is guided by the ploughman.
In the days of steam a pair of tractors would be positioned either side of a field and a huge plough of five or more furrows dragged back and forth by a steel cable. The plough had a seat on which the steersman sat to not only steer the plough but also control the depth. The steam tractors were so powerful, if not continuously adjusted the plough could soon bury itself - as it was it wasn't unusual for the furrows to be 18" deep, discovering many Roman artifacts for the archeologists...
