if key in on position and vehicle is not running lite will be on if light on after starting and vehicle running than can be === belt slipping--alternator not charging-battery not taking a charge have an auto store check battery and alternator most offer this service for free
Does the car have a factory security system? it may have a starter kill on it. also check for voltage at the starter solenoid while someone holds the key to start position, you could have a faulty ignition switch. the engine light stays on when the key is on until engine starts.
You can't jump wires to read codes on this model.older modules you could.check engine light will come on and stay on with key in on position.this is normal.Check to see if security light is flashing after you try to crank engine.If so you have to relearn theft module by leaving ign key in run position for about 12 minutes until security light stops flashing.Very common problem
It could be a relay that keeps the fuel pump running when the ignition switch is in the run position. My jeep had this problem, where the pump gets power in the start position but once the key returns to run, the engine shortly stops running because the pressure in the fuel line drops off as it is used by the running engine, it usually died within 3 seconds. my relay was under hood and there were several of the same type in there, I switched the fuel system one with the one for my AC(which only blows hot anyway) Hope this helps...
I'D START BY CHECKING FOR ANY VACCUM LEAKS NEAR AND ABOUT THE INTAKE MANIFOLD. IF IN FACT YOU DO HAVE AN 88 IT SHOULDNT BE CARBUREATED IT SHOULD BE FUEL INJECTED. IF SO YOU NEED MORE THAN 45PSI OF FUEL PRESSURE TO MAKE IT RUN RIGHT. TURN ON THE KEY BUT DO NOT START THE ENGINE. LISTEN AND SEE IF YOU CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP CHARGE THE SYSTEM, SHOULD BE A LIGHT HISSING SOUND. IF SO START THE ENGINE. WHEN IT SHUTS OFF THEN TURN OFF THE KEY AND REPEAT THIS PROCESS AGAIN, IF YOU CANT HEAR THE NOISE AND IT WILL NOT CRANK THEN EITHER YOU MAY HAVE A FAULTY FUEL PUMP THAT IS ONLY WORKING INTERMITTENLY DUE TO BAD PUMP BRUSHES (REPLACE FUEL PUMP) OR YOU HAVE A BAD FUEL PUMP RELAY.
LET ME KNOW IF I CAN HELP YOU FURTHER JAMESFWALKERJR2006@YAHOO.COM
Possibly you have a bad neutral safety switch, or the reverse lite switch @ the trans. Get a test lite @ a parts store. Check all the fuses, then turn on the key to the run position (don't start the engine), set the parking brake! Put the car in reverse and check for power @ the lite socket. If you have power, change the bulbs. You'll have to get deeper into the elec. system if there's no power. Good luck.
You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset) REPEAT 3 times! Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!
the 12 amp is for a jump start and the 2 amp is for a trickle charge which doesn't degrade the battery. i believe you have a loose connection either a loose ground cable or the positive cable to the starter check these and tighten if neccessary
