2011 Chevrolet Equinox – 3.0L V6 88,000 mi,
PCM code displayed and was repaired at no cost by dealer. However now vehicle will not start on two separate occasions since vehicle returned. Is it related? Vehicle will only start after being jumped and starts fine for about 3 weeks then has to be jumped again??????

Actually the problem happened when I first bought the car used and I traveled 3hrs. away from my home in the winter and it was snowing ungodly when the car started shutting down and stating engine power low. The dealership I bought it from replaced the gas pedal they said. Well, its happening again and I am very concerned with my children in the vehicle when this happens I have no control. The steering wheel locks up and the car just shuts down. It is doing this again, but it has been riding rough for awhile. The code states its the throttle sensor. But who knows, there a several engine recalls. I don’t know, but I think GM needs to replace these vehicles at no cost! Our lives are more important then their bank accounts being debited!
