    I HAVE SAME PROBLEM CHECK YOUR DISTRIBOUTOR COIL I REPLACED MINE RUNS NOW

  • Anonymous Dec 12, 2008

    I have the same problem . Started recently. I just thought maybe I had left the lights on because it jumped so easily. then it did it again. Its a new battery, starter doesnt crank though, and I drove with headlights on so I don't think its the battery. Its almost as if there is some kill switch I don't know about.

I just checked the battery connection and what I thought was a good connection wasn't. It need new connectors on the post. Runs fine after I tightened them more.

Cant find location of flasher relay on a 1995 geo prizm


The flasher unit located usually under the drivers side dash is probably the issue if the turn signal or hazard lights wont work.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

1995 Geo Prizm starts, but stalls when put into drive.


We finally took it to a mechanic and it turned out the ignition coil was bad. Replaced it and the spark plugs and all is well now.
