Question about 1992 Chevrolet G20

1 Answer

Engine will not crank, cannot get security alarm to reset

While jumping the lawn mower the positive clamp shorted to the body. The alarm went off and would not re-set. Suspected the remote battery to be dead and changed battery. Got the car to start once. Put seat and dash cover back in, car will not crank now. Have dash lights, can hear electric fuel pump running, but will not crank. Thank you for any suggestions.

Check the fuses for the alarm you might have blown them which would not let you start the car. word of advice never mess with car alarms and never jump your lawn mower with your car.

do you have a remote for it? if so hit the unlock button. if not, cycle the key in the door cylinder. the disarm switch is connected to the cylinder/latch so that should shut it off.

Went to work parked car, got off work went to crank it would not do any thing all lights in side come on, but nthing from the switch is like no power, but you can jump start from starter it turns over just...

Best guess would be the anti theft security system. If you can jump it at the starter and not the ignition, then id say the security system has the starter locked out. Check out this link for info and options to help you fix this problem yourself.

Need help putting battery in

Battery lives under rear seat IIRC.

Remove Ground - post clamp first and then Positive+ clamp from battery.

There will be one or two 10mm nuts holding the lower securing metal clamp that stops the battery from moving around.

Remove these and lift out securing plate then lift out battery.

Install new or recharged battery and secure lower metal clamp.

Install Positive post **** and then Negative post clamp in this order .

Start engine and check charging rate...max 14.68vdc at 200 rpm and 13.14vdc or higher at idle.

Avoid jump or boost starting these vehicles as electronic damage can occur to on board electrics.

1995 Mazda mpv, was running fine, went to the shops & came back no problems hour later will not start have checked battery, fuses, has plenty of charge but will not crank. what could it be it wont...

could be the starter or it could be the starter solenoid.
if you want to test --- take your volt meter and measure the positive wire going to the starter while someone inside the car tries to start the car,, you are measuring between the solenoid and the starter --- if you have 12 volts there then your solenoid is good and the starter is bad,, but I think if I remember it right that the solenoid and the starter are sold as a complete unit --- you can also remove that power cable going to the starter and with a pair of jumper cables ( use only the positive clamp ) ,, clamp one side to the + side of the battery and take the other side and touch the positive post on the starter,, if the starter jumps then the starter is good and the solenoid is bad. be careful not to touch the body of the starter while doing this test, ( damage to the starter or battery can happen if you short it out ).
also check you main fuse to make sure that is not blown...

Truck will not start, battery starter fused links all check out. what next?

Won't crank? What about relays? Can you safely jump across back of starter with screwdriver? (positive to positive jump) Starter should crank while you do this (don't let screwdriver touch positive and negative) like body of starter . Electrical short can burn you or blind you. Don't attempt if unsure.

If starter will crank by jumping then at least you know what you are looking for.

1999 chevy blazer won't start

First of all make sure all your battery connections are Clean and Tight. If they are and all your dash lights come on and its not starting But its cranking over Your anti theft alarm may have gotten activated. You may have to leave your Key in the On position for 20 minutes to reset the alarm. Not cranking just in the on position, Now if its not Cranking and your hearing a clicking sound it may be your starter. I have sometimes tapped on the stater with a deadblow hammer and had someone crank it over Making sure your in park foot on brake and being EXTREMLY Carefull that you are not going to run someone over. If that don't get you going Get back to me we can do some more trouble shooting. Get that thing going for you. Thanks, Bear001
