Tip & How-To about Chevrolet Chevy

No start problem

If your car is not cranking when you turn the key there are a few things you can do to pin point the problem.1) Make sure your battery connections are not loose and corrosion free.2) Make sure your starter connections arent loose 3) Make sure you did not leave any accesories on (headlights,interrior lights).If so and the battery is dead have the battery slow charged (try to avoid jump starts from a dead battery,its bad for the altenator).

How can i bypass the alarm/immobiliser on Autowatch 446RLI the car battery died, after charging the car battery the car won't start. it is dead quite when turning the key even thou the dash is lit.

Try getting a friend to boost start your battery with his vehicle and see if your car will crank. If your car cranks over - you have a faulty battery.

Check your battery leads, particularly the black earth lead where it connects to the engine/bodywork.
It's worth pointing out that a failed battery will charge up to a certain extent - however there isn't sufficient power in that battery to crank the engine even though all your dashboard lights are illuminated.
Get somebody to try boost-starting your battery first.

If you're sure that your battery is ok (or if connected to another vehicle): Put your ignition key in and turn it on/off a few times. Leave it in the 'on' position for 2-3 minutes. Give the system time to re-recognise the key

It actually sounds to be battery problem

I have 96 isuzu trooper3.2l v6 stick shift all power is good but when i stick key in switch and turn it no sound at all what could that be

electrical power you meant is seems good.
engine power zero.
starter dead.
this is no crank, ill post again,. for this, done so many times.

i use this thing called a voltmeter and avoid this jiggery pokery below...... time is money.

1: fuses good.battery terms clean? (all fuses, if you lack the FSM to see which ones are IN PLAY.)
2: battery charged to 12.6vdc reseted?
3: jumper cable cranking work now>? off a running donor car?
yes, the battery was dead, or weak, or discharged, test battery, test cars charging system and last make sure no drain on battery parked keys out of car..
4: NO, jump fails.
check or bypass clutch switch?
this cranks ok, (bad clutch switch at its pedal.)
if still dead it can be bad key switch or bad starter relay.
lets see if it has the relay. ,alldata.com says yes.

so does the starter relay close, cranking?
if not fix cause that first.
it needs fuses working
it needs power to the relay contactor input
power to the coil
and the coil enabling factor the clutch depressed and its switch must be closed.
and if the antithieft box, (factory option) is unhappy
the start relay coil will be dead.
start at the relay ,
does the (turned on) dash heater fan cut off, cranked
yes, then relay is closing
no, its not. find reason.
easy with a volt meter the 4 pins on relay.
pins 3,4,5,6
12v, 12v, 0v and 12v respectively.
if the pin 5 never goes to 0v, the immoblizer is unhappy.
sorry so small, Fixya shinks it to useless....

1992 Chevy G20 Van wont turn over.

Some people say "it won't turn over when they mean it cranks and won't start. If you turn the key and there's no noise, turn on the headlights to see if they are bright. If so, battery is probably o.k. If it won't crank, the problem is in the ignition switch, transmission safety switch, or the firewall connections. You have to check point to point.. If it cranks and won't start, It's either spark or fuel. More info needed.
