Ok thanks for all your help, going to take it in and have it read this week. We had it read once and the only thing it showed failing was the throotle position sensor....we'll see what it reads this time, and will let you know, just in case somebody else has the same problem...the midnight train looks better and better everyday. Also, this afternoon had alot of hesitation again.

honeybear, can you please get out of the habit of replying to yourself?

If nobody has replied, and you have more to say, please edit your last post.


If Autozone finds any fault codes or identifies any bad parts DO NOT BUY them. Come back here FIRST and report the codes.

No we took it to autozone today and they were not able to read it as the scanner they have is for 96 and newer cars. Were taking it back to the garage tomorrow that we first took it to, and putting it back on the computer. Hopefully it will read something.

I just noticed that you have a '94. You cannot have your codes scanned there, you will have to find someone with a scantool that can read the 94/95 computer, or take it to a dealer so they can run the codes.

Wow..

We've done a whole run of things here. Let'* back up and try the basics. Aka the free things we know of that will keep a car from starting.

First off. Watch and monitor your security light. This will tell us if the VATS aka security system is messing with you.

Remove and clean all ends of the battery cables. This seems like a big task at first..but is actually quite easy. Corrosion is not our friend.

Is the front floor carpet in the car wet or moist? We have seen more than a few cases of this causing corrosion to the ground buss area on both sides. One member found kicking his carpet at the ground buss would keep the car running.

ok, the battery cables have been cleaned, we got that idea off of here when we first started looking. The security light blinks till you put the key in the ignition just as it always has done. Ummm.....no the carpets in the front dont get wet, never had that problem. Any more suggestions you might have would be great!
