Chevrolet Equinox

Equinox having trouble starting

I bought my Equinox brand new in 06 and haven't had a problem until recently..Was driving fine and all of a sudden the gauges went dead but the engine stayed on however with no acceleration.I then turned it off and restarted the engine,it had power but it wouldn't crank over. I got it towed to my mechanic and he said the ecm and the tcm needed to be updated. So fine he does the programming and i get it back rides fine. The next day it does the same thing but this time it starts. I get it home and drives fine for the next 2 days then again same thing gauges turn off but the engine is still running. I take it back and he says the tcm has to be changed so he changes that and same thing. Happens a third time the gauges turn off but the engine still runs. Take it back yet a third time and now says its the ecm that needs to be changed..Changes that and it runs fine for a hour then same problem but this time when i hit the gas it does accelerate and the gauges come back on! not sure what the problem is but has anyone had this type of problem and if so what was the fix? I have already spent $1000 on this and can not afford to spend any more. Any help would be appreciated!  (Sep 7, 2013 | post #174)
