Multiple possibilities, have it scanned first. May need to perform a crankshaft relearn. Will need to be done at dealer or mechanic shop.

Sounds like you are having a PCM problem. The keep alive memory is internally located in the PCM. With all the other problems you are having, this is the most likely cause.

My 95 had a similar problem. Turned out to be a vacuum leak at the fuel PSI regulator, split hose.

I happen to own a 2002 alero, and my wife called me and said the same problem had happened. Change your fuel filter.

2001 ford taurus power draining new battery & new alternater won't work when cables are removed from battery


That suggests that the problem is in the harness, something in the connector or wiring is causing an open circuit. You will need to have the circuit tested to find the fault. Ford alternators have known connector issues & new aftermarket connectors are readily available at most auto parts stores.

2001 oldsmobile aurora cranks but wont start


Yes your brother is partially right. the code says that it is the sensor circuit. so test the sensor and the wires. Does it seem to turn over faster than usual? if so your suspicions would also be correct (timing belt).

Stored 2yrs. installed new battery. won't keep charged. dead next morning.


You didn't mention how far if any you drove since installing battery. First jump start, put voltmeter in battery while idling - should read 13.1v-15.8v. Anything less, replace alternator. If good, load test new battery.

I just bought a 2001 bmw 325ci the car had a rough idle when i drove it home and the check engine light came on. after about 10 min i took the car out the light went off i went to the gas station and...


Welcome to the world of BMW's. return the car to the seller. you got a bad one. You got an electrical short draining the battery. Bring a blank check and sign it over to the dealer. They're going to have to run through the entire electrical system to find the short. That work alone is worth more than the a used up 2001 325i.

Battery dead every morning


Something is shorting out (drawing power but not returning it to the battery)
Make sure you don't have any accessories plugged in and running or anything else running or on when you go to bed at night as this would draw down the power!
I'm assuming you have to jump start it every mourning.
Is that correct?
If so the new battery and alternator will be strained and go again soon!
Go to an auto parts store like Advanced Auto Parts and have your battery and alternator tested (they do this for free) and may be able to verify that you have a power draw somewhere!
A jury rig fix would be to put a battery disconnect (available at any auto parts store and pretty easy to install) at the terminal to the battery and disconnecting every night but that won't fix the power draw.
What was the original problem that led you to change the battery and alternator?
