That is Inflatable Restraint light
Airbag problem
Sensor failed, or something else in the airbag system.
The light is on because that system has detected a problem within the air bag system. Anything from an accident to a broken wire somewhere! This system is disabled as long as the light is on but the bag could still go off if the right sequence of events happens, just to be on the safe side, I would have the codes checked to see if it's something simple or not. A Geo Metro is not the safest car to begin with, you need all the help you can get!

How do I reconnect the cable on my 1990 geo storm gsi that controls where the air flow is directed. like defrost floor heat vent dash vents. on the dashboard it is the lever above the temp lever. it has...


its just 1 lever , 1 cable and 2 arms (bell cranks)
the lever arm moves the cable, the cable then moves the damper arm. ( cave man simple and super reliable)
if it came loose at the far end, then the clip is missing?
finding GEO parts can be hard, (Geo is dead)
its really a Isuzu Impulse. rebadge job.

here is GM parts list.
note some are not sold now !
and isuzu is defunct here to, so....... USA.

http://www.tonkinonlineparts.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_assembly=825350&ukey_make=1087&ukey_model=15866

those levers are bell cranks.
the ends have holes. (for cable)
some cables are dog legged and just fit in , no clips
other cars use clips. if the clip i lost the cable can not be
held to the Cranks (damper levers)
ever been to an auto store,and seen the huge selection
of generic parts, called HELP.? (red blister packs galore)
they have clips.

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>)

1992 Geo Storm having problems.


you may have turned too many rmps and warped a piston which would cause the piston to actualy hit your valve, or while turning too many rpms you may have caused the valve to "float" which would mess it up

Infl rest light flashing no fuel


Your Infl. Rest. Light is supposed to flash 7-9 times when you turn the ignition on or when you start the engine, It should then go off. If it is constantly flashing or comes on and stays on, You have a problem with your airbags and they will not function in a crash. It is unrelated to your fuel issue.
