Customer Question
After washing the engine...

After washing the engine of my Escalade with water the check engine light & stabilizar light came on. While driving home I got a message saying "loosing power on engine" and it wouldn't go over 25 mph. Now the vehicle won't crank. Everything will turn on except the engine

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?

Which light?

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your Escalade?

2007

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Escalade yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. I have tried to clean all the electrical connectors after letting the engine dry

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I disconnected the ECM to make sure there was no water in before starting the vehicle and that's when it didn't want to crank

The guy in the auto parts didn't give me the paper back that I had it written on. I think it was P201 or something like that.

or P0201

based on available information, I will not be able to tell you why exactly the car is not starting... there are many possible causes...
