That's what the car does when the computer is reset... I dunno why it would be doing that when you start your car.

You may have a wiring problem. Something grounding out that's causing that. I had that problem but it was caused by junk in the connector for my SCT chip. I think it engauged the PATS on me. It thought I was stealing my own car and it wouldn't start.

Re: 2000 v6

I actually had a problem the other day when i was shifting into third and my car just literally died on me, and the gauges stayed where they last were and the car wouldndt restart, luckily there was a median and i was able to go to that, and then the car wouldnt start at all, the connectors were all tight, so im not really sure what the hell happend, i got the battery fixed and still no problem yet. Anyone have any ideas what happend? Could it of been a short or anything, but its not doing it now.

hmm that happends when the battery is diconnected, you may have a short or something on teh gauges, not sure where the gauges are triggered to rest themselves at.
