#1 of 4 2005 Chevrolet Equinox Computer problems, Please Help!!
Oct 31, 2011 (8:00 pm)
This is the Scenario: (English is my sencond language, in case you see any typos, please excuse!), When I tried to turn on my car, it wont start, I thouht i Left the lights on, and that the batteries died. I called triple AAA for a jump. After the jump, I tried to drive my car, I drove the car for maybe 15 minutes, and the car shut down again. called the mechanic, and he told me that it was the batteries, got new batteries, but still the same problem, then we thought it was the alternator, we replaced it, still the same problem, then the car started smelling very bad, like something burned, The fussills (don't know how to spell that) were burned.
The thing is that after replacing everythin now the mechanic is telling me that the computer has to be replace, somehow he said that the computer got damage, and now I don't know what to do. I don't have any type of warranty. What do you guys suggest. I can't just keep on replacing things.
The help will be greatly appreciated. !!!

You need a mechanic that specializes in electrical to examine your vehicle. Sounds like you got some kind of short somewhere. Good luck.
