Question about 1996 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

1 Answer

Car will not start no power or lights work on the inside

I have a 96 MC z34 and there's to be a problem with the electricity or power of the car. The only sound it makes is the beeping sound when the door is open and the only light that comes on is the one inside the glovebox. When you turn the key the car does absolutely NOTHING at all. No interior lights or anything come on. And the battery in the car is not dead.

That acts like the starter solenoid has a bad connection or has gone bad. first remove the starter , and see if there is any corrosion or burnt areas . also while you have it out , take it to auto zone . they will be able to test it for you for free .

Abs light on and pedal will not compress without pumping when I first start the car. Drives fine after. 2004 Isuzu rodeo 3l

pumping means the MC is bad, or there are leaks.
look for leaks takes what 5min?
if no leaks on ground
or on tires.
or both sides of fire wall below, MC then the MC is bad. (leaks inside at seals inside (worn out)
mc is the MASTER cylinder.
my post assumes brakes were not molested, or needs bleeding due to that.

You don't have to pull it to replace the TCC. Remove the pan and you can access the TCC solenoid. 40b12bb6-08f8-4f1c-b959-9bfe6f7b08fb.gif

96 Monte carlo z34 won't crank over unless I jump

Sounds like a problem with the key switch, probably the security system. You may only have power to the fuel pump when the engine is cranking.
Is the security light on or flashing ?

Yes most likely the electric air pump is bad &/or wiring going to it. Where it is located it allows moisture to build up in it & it self destructs.

96 Isuzu Rodeo electrical problems (Car wont start)

It has to be an electrical connection as you say. The Anti Lock Brake system light is probably just a deprograming of the computer. Due to the electrical problem. Have you check for current at the starter ? Have sombody turn the key as if starting it. Then with a test light check for current at the starter connections. This will give you an idea whre to look for an open circuit or short.
