My brother has a 2000 Chevy Cavalier, not sure what engine. It killed on him on the freeway last night and we had it towed. It tried to start, it has spark and is getting gas. He said that he had no “check engine light” before it stalled. We are sure it has plenty of gas in the tank. After the tow, when we pulled the key out of the ignition, EVERY stratis light stayed on (Emerg Brake, check engine, ABS, oil ,etc…) We checked to be sure the ignition WAS in the off position and tried the key numerous times, turning it to on or acc, then to off and pulling the key. Still the statis lights stayed on after pulling the key.
I’m thniking the Ignition switch is bad.
Also, when we were turning it over…I thnik it felt a little rough…like slightly out of time. But then It’s not my car, so I’m not familuar with how it sounds starting.
I’m pretty good with cars and engines, and do most of my own work, but this has me stumped.
Anyone have any experience with these lights staying on like this. Maybe it’s some way for the computer to signal a particular problem.
