Most of the things listed are electrical, and 'stuff' on today's vehicles can be pretty sensitive to voltage irregularities. Might be worth while checking battery/charging system.

I own a 2008 cobalt and it is doing the same thing. My security light will come on randomly then dash reads low fuel, power steering, engine light comes on. When I come to a red light and then start to take off car bucks (jumps) into gear. Also when it going haywire and I put it into reverse then drive car jumps into gear. I have had the batter checked and replaced but car is still doing the same. Had my auto repair guy put it on the monitor and the read out said all 5 computers were bad, (mechanic said this is highly unlikely all five would be bad at the same time) but once monitor was discounted from my vehicle it reset itself and is running fine for now, however it will happen again. I have been dealing with this problem for over 8 months now. Any help out there would be greatly appreciated. I only have 35,000 miles on my car.

#1159 of 1161 Infiniti i30 will not start after sitting out in sun/heat
May 20, 2013 (9:01 am)
As the weather's getting warmer, I've been running into a strange issue with my car. The car will not start when it's been sitting out in the sun/noshade on 80 degree+ days.
When I attempt to start, there is:
- no "click"
- no noise whatsoever from the starter
- no changes in dials on the dashboard
- dashboard check battery light turns on
- A/C, stereo, headlights, etc. turn on
This has happened several times - always on hot days when the car has been sitting out in the sun. It will consistently fail to start if I attempt to start repeatedly. I've had success getting the car to by opening the hood and letting the engine "air out", when it's not particularly hot out, or leaving it for a few hours and returning in the evening when it is cooler.
Yesterday, it failed to start right after I pumped gas in the afternoon. I was able to get it started by waiting a few minutes with the hood open.
I've had the car for five months and never had any issues starting in the winter.
It's 13 years old and has about 110,000 miles on it. The battery is newish.
#1160 of 1161 2007 Saturn Hybrid Vue
Oct 21, 2013 (4:09 am)
I could really use some help... I've been dealing with the dealership for about four months now.
My problem is with my 2007 saturn hybrid vue, I've had the problem before and a previous dealership fixed it... The first time it happened around 60k miles...it started again at about 94k...it's now at 99k, and the dealership put on a 1,000 miles and said the problem wouldnt reappear, three days later and only 50 miles on my part and the problem is back. The problem is as follows.
While driving I have random lights on my dashboard flicker on and off. I get almost every light except the check engine light flickering on and off...The ABS the emergency brake the TCM...the security light flickers on and is the only one that then remains on for the rest of the drive.
This stuff has happened but seems to come and go depending on when they return the car...I've also had all of my gauges zero out... I've had it go into a "power saving mode"...where I couldn't accelerate very fast. I also had one time where I stopped at a red light and the car turned itself off instead of doing the normal hybrid stop...and then restarted itself like nothing happened while me and my friend stared at it confused...
The dealership seems to have no idea what is happening...they say they have replaced all the modules and checked all the wires...
Please help if you can, thanks.

Would it be possible for you to gently rap on the starter motor with a broomstick or some such?
