SOURCE: Trouble with alarm of Pontiac Grand Prix SE

I will assume your alarm system is factory installed, which makes it a passive system. This being said there has to be a "valet" switch for the alarm system. it will be one of two places, first check the obvious and look at the dash panel under the steering wheel, there might be a pushbutton kill switch there, or a rocker switch of sorts. If no luck there, the blinking status light that is on your dashboard might be the switch itself. Try "GENTLY" pushing it in. if it does push, the red light will start to double blink, this is normal. If neither of these solve it, call yoru local dealer and ask them where the switch is. Good Luck

Possibly shift interlock problem check the btsi fuse in the instrument fuse panel. There is a shift lock actuator in the column or center console that could be your culprit depending on if you have a column or floor shifter.

the egr value tubing also gets corroded with carbon. take tube off and use a wire brush to clean tubing. i talked with a mechanic and he said he has never seen an egr valve fail. most if not all egr problems are due to carbon build up in the egr tube. clean egr tube interior.

Hi i have a 1984 35 hp evinrude electric start E35RLCRR that wont start or turn over


If you are sure that all connections are clean and bright, including the battery to the ground and battery cable to the solenoid, jumper from the battery (+) to the solenoid (+). If the solenoid clicks, but motor doesn't turn over, your solenoid is bad. Try jumpering momentarily from the battery (+) to the starter (+) and that should cause the starter to rotate. If that makes your starter rotate, your solenoid is still bad. Be sure that your starter has a good ground connection

I have 93 parkave and all power works but wont start


The click is an indication of the starter solenoid being defective, the heavy contacts inside are burnt away and making a poor connection, this keeps the starter from getting power from the starter solenoid. You can just remove the starter or you can just replace the solenoid. You need to disconnect the battery negative cable before doing any work. The starter is accessed from under the car, you must make a note of what wires go to what terminal when you remove them, it is a common mistake to not do this and slows the installation because of the confusion over where everything hooks up.

I have a 2000 chevy malibu ls. at first..we just thought that the battery needed charged..so we bought a new battery.. then it still wouldnt start..so we bought a new starter and replaced that..and it...


DO you hear a clicking when you turn the key to start? Solenoid relay make a click sound when energized.
If the solenoid is not mounted on the starter motor then it will be near the battery
The key switch sends power to the solenoid. the solenid is a big remote controlled switch,and it takes power from the battery to the starter motor

Everything inside works lights radio ect but wont turn over does not even make a noise when you try to start it but everything else works radio


I would check all of your connections to your battery, starter, and your starter solenoid. Pull your battery out and have it load tested. Bypass your starter solenoid and apply power directly to the starter. If the starter turns over the solenoid is bad. If it doesnt you have a bad starter. You can smack the starter with a hammer while someone bumps the ignition, if it turns over while you are smacking it them its the starter. You can also have the starter measured for amperage draw, if it is really high then you have a bad starter. I would also check all fuses and relays that relate to the starting and charging system.

94 z wont start


You will have to check, at the starter, for power to the SMALL wire on the starter solenoid (which is on the starter) when turning the ignition switch to start.
If there is power to this wire ( usually purple ) and power at the LARGE cable ( from the battery ) at the starter end.....you need a starter.

If you do not have power at the small wire at the solenoid with the key in start position and battery power is OK.....check the safety neutral switch.Moving the shifter around a little can sometimes allow the car to start if the neutral switch is worn.

A new battery does not always mean a fully charged battery.
Try a boost from another car before testing the starter for power.

The battery cables need to be clean and tight....and check the ground to the engine as well.

Everything else may work OK with bad connections,they don't use the power the starter needs to turn the engine over.

Car wont start


Does the battery have enough capacity to turn over the engine though? Even flat car batteries will still power the radio. The best way would be to jump start the car uing a set of jumper leads. If it starts you know it is the battery that needs replacing.

If it still wont turn over then it is most likely the solenoid in your starter motor. You can often tap the starter motor with a hammer and free the solenoid as a temporary fix. The starter motor is loacted at the back of the engine on the bell housing if rear wheel drive, or around the tranmission if a front wheel drive.

Car wont start...sometimes


Sounds like a bad starter solenoid, usually cheapest and easiest to replace the starter and solenoid as a unit. It is always best to check for power between the solenoid and the starter with a test light, if the solenoid clicks but the test light doesn't light up you have found the problem in the solenoid.

CAR WONT START ON FORD FALCON AU (AUTO)


Check the voltage on your battery. When the battery is low, you will still have lights and what not but not enough juice to start the car. Check the condition of your battery cables especially your ground. If everything check out fine, your problem may be a bad starter or the solenoid. If you replace the starter, replace the solenoid with it. Be sure to check the cable from the starter solenoid to the starter.
