What is wrong with my 2012 Chevy Traverse? It won't start and my check engine light was on the night before.


Asked by Rich Aug 18, 2015 at 08:29 AM about the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse 1LT AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My wife was driving home.from work
when she realized that her check engine
light was on. She waited till she got
home to turn it off to check to see if it
goes away. We didn't recheck the car
until this morning and only to realize that
our car wont turn over. All lights came on
(including the check engine light) but it
just won't turn over. We didn't have time
to jump start to rule the batter out or the
alternator  but I am no mechanic but it
seems to me that out starter may have
went. Am I accurate?

This may not be of help but I notice if I put my purse or something in front passenger seat the seat belt warning dings every once in awhile. Guess I need to empty some stuff from my bag so it doesn't thing it's an actual person. Lol. Just a thought!
