Alright, I have a 2009 Aveo5 LS. I am having issues keeping the car working.
Here is my issue.
Car sat for about a year, when I went to start it, the car would start and run for about 30 secs, then die and I would not be able to start it for another 30 secs, no crank or anything, its like I am not getting a response from the ignition..
I have a check engine light on (no scanner to test it). I started doing some testing and realized my battery was NOT being recharged. I benched tested the battery, all good. Then I noticed the mega fuse on the positive battery cable was blown and once I replaced it; the alternator was charging my battery again, (14.6 volts) when running.
The car seems to start just fine, but it is still doing this issue. Starts, runs for 30, dies, wont start for 30, starts, runs for 30, dies, wont start for 30.... etc etc.. and remember when I try to restart it, I get nothing when I turn the key directly after it stalls.
I am at a loss and not sure I have access to a scanner to find out the codes. Please help.
I have read it could be a fuel pump (which doesnt make sense to me as it starts), ignition coil, (again doesnt make sense, as it runs perfect for 30 secs).
It feels like the computer is waiting for a signal from something and never gets it... If I clean my check engine light, I will start the car, but the light comes on about 25 secs later and the car dies.
idk what is going on.
