Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1999 Chev Venture.. The transmission cable broke..... I replaced it, and now the vehicle starts, but only runs for a few seconds and shut off..... I was told by a mechanic, that there maybe a security code issue, that might cause the problem...... due to the continued trying to turn on the ignition and trying to move the gear lever while the cable was broken?...

1 Answer


Try having a OBD check, I experienced similar problem of start - no start...turned out the anti-theft module needed replacement.
