Question about 1997 Geo Metro

1 Answer

1989 Geo Tracker, won't start with ignition

Starter will not engage. Have checked battery as well as bought new battery , no help. took off the starter assembly and took it in to see if it was defective and it tests out fine. Have checked fuse under dash and that was not the problem. Tracker starts with no problem if you push it just a couple of feet. have checked battery connections and all of the starter wires. Pulling hair out now so frustrated.

    i have the same problem with a tracker a few years newer

  • bcarroll782 Feb 11, 2009

    I have a 2000 Chevy Tracker that will not start. I had it towed to a great garage but they said it was a pcm connection as they got it started by tapping on the pcm box. They said I had to take it to a dealership to fix it. The car remained at the dealership starting and was told to take it home. 15 min after I got home the car died again. We were able to get it started and back to the dealership where it has been for a month. As it starts now they say they cannot tell what the problem is. Help!

SOURCE: HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE RADIO FROM A 1995 GEO TRACKER????????

To remove the radio:
Remove the ashtray by raising the armrest cover and removing the two screws at the rear of the ashtray. Slide the ashtray back and then lift it out. Be careful of the two front tabs, as you don't want to break them.
Reach below the wood console, where the ashtray front tabs were inserted. Loosen and remove the two wing nuts.
With a small, long flat bladed screwdriver, pry out the leather shifter surround. The leather shifter surround has a center chrome retaining ring, the leather surround, and then finally a black plastic surround. The chrome retaining ring has 3-4 tabs which are locked in below the leather surround. It depends on the year of the Jaguar. Probably the 95 has three, but maybe four. They should be at the front and rear of the trim piece (2 front and 1 back, or 2 front and two back) but I've seen then on the sides. The point is, you have to be careful with the screwdriver and find the tabs. The screwdriver should be slid between the leather and the retainer. Pull upwards on the retainer gently, and as you loosen the tabs, it will come out.
Remove the leather surround. Once the chrome retainer has been removed, it should be easy to work it out of the console.
Loosen the black trim ring gently as it has tabs as well, but they are visible once the leather trim has been removed. Lift it upwards out of the wood trim and pull it to the side out of the way. You don't need to disconnect the wires, just lay the black trim to the side.
Lift the rear of the wood console trim and gently, gently slide it back and up. It will try to hang on the leather console, and can be difficult. Patience is important, as the walnut on the ski slope cracks easy (really easy).
Once the wood console trim (ski slope) is removed, you should have a row of screws up the side of the center control panel, where the radio and AC controls are. There are four to six on each side, depending on what Jaguar used at the time, as the 95 cars mechanically are somewhat of a blend of the XJ40 and the XJ300. Remove these screws, and note any spacers that were behind them. These spacers get lost quickly, and cause the ski slope to sit awkwardly on the console.
The radio will slide forwards once these screws are removed. Remove the radio harness and the antenna lead. As the books say, assembly is reverse of removal.
Good luck, and let me know if you have questions. If you are replacing the radio, let me know as I have the harness wiring codes and can help you with that as well.

SOURCE: reset check engine light on 1995 geo tracker

I had the very same problem with my 94 tracker and it turned out to be something simple. My check engine light had popped on after it had hit 100,000. I went through all of the suggestions that people had suggested (unplug battery......etc) and still to no avail. Searching the internet, I came across a website called suzukiforum.com and there, this guy was able to help me with my problem. It turned out to be a maintenance switch that kicks on every 50,000 miles. This switch is like a secret that the auto manufactures use to ploy owners of their cars to bring to the dealer and then rack up the dollars in unnecessary "repairs". The switch is located under the dash and can be hidden anywhere. From the assistance of the guy on the forum, he was able to send me photos of this damn switch and possible locations where it may be mounted. I found mine in about 5 minutes, where it was attached to the steering column. It's a tiny switch, that you slide up or down, depending on what position it is in upon finding it. If it's up, then slide it in the down position and visa versa. Once you do this, the check engine light will go off. Make sure you do not have the car running and you can even unhook one of the battery posts, just to make sure you don't hit anything while rooting around under the dash. Good luck!

SOURCE: 1995 Geo tracker Stereo Unlock Code

If your lucky the code may have been written down in the manuel book. If it's not written down in the book or it's missing, drive to the chevy dealer that sells Geo trackers and the Service adviser can help you unlock the stereo by getting the information from the Vin number.
Good luck and hope this help. http://www.delcolockcodes.com/

Problem with 1996 GEO Will not spin the motor sometimes


Watch and listen as you turn the switch. Do the dash lites change the same each time? Do you hear a click, which would be the start relay? If these changes and noises don't always happen the same, the ignition switch is wearing out.

I have a 1992 geo tracker. when i turn the key nothing happens. i replaced the starter and cleaned all the wire to the battery. this worked for a while . then when i turn the key with the spade connector...


Check the ignition switch steering in column, it goes bad also over time, you cant fix or rebuilt it and its expensive unit, will have to buy a new unit or one from a junk yard, assuming the battery has a good charge and new starter. try to play with the ignition switch by turning the key back and forth many times and see if you get some kind of contact to the dash light or starter while everything is connected.

Possible failure of the microprocessor or the control unit in this section. If there was any reason that the battery had leaked out into the unit , then open and wash with methy spirit , clean and set back.

I have a 1995 geo tracker installed a starter , it started fine but negative post on battery got hot now wont start at all just clicks


new battery....or alternator.....try boosting it if it starts leave it running and remove cables... if it quits when u remove jumper cables then u need alternator or check its fuseable link ........if it stays running it was your battery and your starter was probably ok i...u didnt need to change it or both starter and battery were bad ....starters kill batteries when they are failing and start to draw too much amperage from battery ...another quick way to tell a battery is dead,,,,,,is to look and see if its swollen or bulging...tis the season for batteries and alternaters ;-) good luck

96 geo tracker will start on time and not the


You didn't indicate that the starter turns over slow--that would be a strong indication of a bad battery, but if so, check your battery. If your battery is more than three years old, replace it. If the battery is good and you still have problems it could be a starter problem.
