  • if you go to turn the engine over and all the reds are off its more than likely one of the computers has become faulty in the car to check it is quite easy you can get some one to come out with a tech 2 diagnostic computer to see if they can read it.Jul 30, 2014
  • if the reds come on it could be a faulty starter motor or the battery could have dropped a cell to check the battery you will need a multi meter and when you turn the key the voltage will drop a fully charged batter should read around 12.5 volts if it drops when you go to start the car lower than 11.48 volts means the battery is no longer able to hold the correct charge
  • to check if the fuel pump is working is very simple when you turn the car to the reds you can hear the fuel pump start and build pressure up in the injectors line.
  • majority of Holden vt commodore problems relating to the car starting should always be checked in a simple order
  • how old is the battery is it holding charge?
  • dose the starter motor engage?
  • also if the at starter motor engages with a fully charged battery and the fuel pump works then another thing you might want to look at is the alternator normally when the alternator rectifier diode becomes faulty it will drain the battery meaning you will spend every day jump starting your car

Wat kind of v8 is suitable for a 1997 3.8 v6 holden commodore excutive


your VT /VX came out with a V8 engine
you need the engines ECU and the V8 gearbox
manual diff ratios can be optional

1997 -2002 engines will bolt in

you could go up the next commy V8 model it has roller rockers
you can have a v6 or v8 supercharged if you like

once all bolted in you need a mutt 2 diagnostic reader to reset all the keys and modules and immobilizer for it to start and run

1999 vt v6 commodore wont crank


Ok let's see, engine won't crank or want start. No crank means the engine won't turn over. No start means engine is cranking but won't run. If it will not turn over check your fuses,switch, battery cables,battery. You can get someone to hit the starter with a hammer while you try to turn it over in case the starter stopped in a flat spot.

Hi my 95 model vs commondore would not start,charged battery it wont windover and makes this clicking noise.


the clicking noise is from the starter motor not getting enough charge to wind over properly...check battery is holding a full 12 volt charge.
if commodore is manual - put it into third gear and get someone to help you rock the car back and forward (with handbrake off and ignition off of course)if starter motor is 'jamming' this can release it. ive seen many bush mechanics hit the side of the starter motor in holdens with a hammer to release it also.( with an auto this is your only option.)
other wise if battery is proven to be good - go to the wreckers and buy another starter motor.

2001 GMC Jimmy with a 4.3L V6 auto trans. Will not turn over


The starter relay may have a bad connection, this is where your battery connects, and a power wire runs to the starter, also these have a ignition wire which is approx 14-16 gauge wire. The relay could be cracked or the contacts inside are going bad. But the other is the neutral safety switch that you mention. I would check these first.
