2008 GMC Envoy stalled out while driving and won't start. Can't shift out of park.

Asked by Nov 18, 2012 at 01:01 PM about the 2008 GMC Envoy

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While driving, my friend's 2008 GMC Envoy stalled out. I started it back up, and tried to turn around to
go back home, when it did it again and wouldn't start back up. He couldn't even shift it to neutral to
push it out of the road. It had a full tank of gas, and the electrical worked, so there was power. What the
heck is going on?

Get it to a local GM dealer. The computer in these control everything. There is a possibility its the ignition switch but there is slim chance of finding out without the proper diagnostic computers. When I say they control everything I literally mean everything.

The vehicle is cursed. I have these issues and more. It started with simple stalling as if it were running out of gas (no, quarter tank). Now, dash lights work intermittently, acts as if battery is dead, even with booster attached. Dims the overhead lights and turns the dash lights off completely. Most of the time no click or rattle of any type from under the hood. In turning it on and thinking I had a fuel pump problem originally I discovered I was only getting 5 volts back to the fuel pump (should be 12). The issues keep going. It is cursed.
