93 Geo Storm standard Transmission 1.6 Engine Lately I have to push start it Replaced ignition switch Checked all the fuses Starters good Help 48 disabled female


bad fuel, is it old? fuel.
needs tuneup, air cleaner and spark plugs , at least.
if the starter cranks fast and dont' start,
but does push started. that means the spark is weak
when cranking, and marginal spark plugs can do that.
this car is really (under Geo snake skins) a
an Isuzu Impulse
and Isuzu is defunct there too. (double bad)

now my real guess......analysis...
im not sure your order stated.
the engine would not crank over with a key before the new switch or after?
and "starters good", does that mean , it still fails to crank start with key
but the hot wiring of starter does?
try this:
tell use what happens when you turn the key, is best.
I turn the key, and i get the dash board to light up,
lots of lights. and the CEL LaMP GLOWS.
the CEL lamp, means the ENGINE brain is alive.
then you turn the key to cranks (start) position.
  1. nothing happens.
  2. it only clicks
  3. it cranks slowly,
  4. it cranks fast, just like a new car does. fast. cranking.

1,2,3,4.?

and does jumper cable starts work>?
if this works , your battery is low. , discharged or dead, or bad.
if the battery keeps going low, its bad, or the alternator fails to charge the battery, or you have phantom drains , discharging it as you sleep.

my guess, (based on most common)
is #3, slow cranks, and spark plugs are long since gone.(fouled and gaps no longer in spec>)

Why does the red light om my 2002 crown vic flash fast when I attemp to start it


Which red light? The one on top of the dash? If so, there are two cases where that light will flash rapidly: If you use the wrong programmed key, it will immediately start flashing rapidly when you turn on the ignition and try to start the car. If the light is steady and then starts flashing rapidly after a few seconds when you turn on the ignition or try to start the car, you are using the correct programmed key but the engine computer has a problem or has failed.

Stuck key in ingition turned, it caught turned on intrument lights and then just started spinning. Now it just spins in the ignition and lights won't turn off.


The ignition barrel has failed. You will need to remove this and replace with a new one. Can be a real painful job too.

Starting problem


Look at top center of dash when you turn key to on position look for a red light, if light blinks fast you have a problem with your antitheft system if it goes off in 3 seconds it is ok. If blinking fast you may have a bad key or unprogrammed key or another problem in that system. It would be best to take it to a dealer to have it looked at.

Jaguar s/type wont start had flat battery now replaced x.reg 2000


Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.
