If when you turn the key is clicks it is a starter most likely, but if it turns and turns but won't fire and keep going it is a fuel pump.

you can disconnect the battery for a minute and see if that clears the glitches. Just make sure you have the anti-theft radio code, and know how to program it.

I jumped started my 2007 Torrent and now the radio wont come on, nor the sound for turn signals.


Not a solution, but our torrent is doing the same thing. Periodically things like the radio, blinkers, dash lights, etc won't work. After parking the car for a while and trying again they seem to work again. This continues for about 2 weeks then the car decides not to start. After recharging the battery; a couple of days later the cycle continues again.
We thought it might be a short in the DVD player as it happened when we left the disc in, but the dealership has been unable to duplicate the issue.
Everything from updating the software on the electric seats has been done without success.

'97 Malibu, dash lights don't work


Check your fuses. The dash lights are on a different fuse. Also check dimmer switch. If its not one, then it is the other. Try working dimmer switch quickly back and forth( with the lights on when it's dark so you can see if they come on).

Same issue no radio,windows, locks but dash board electric works


Try unhooking the battery, turn key on, leave door open, then connect battery, start engine immediately. The battery saver module thinks it's saving your power!!

Power winidows, wipers, dome lights not working on 1998 explorer


This could be a combination of electrical issues, although i feel that the timing is coincidence in this case. When the combination is elec. windows, wipers, and dome lights this is indicative of the GEM module located behind your radio. The GEM (generic electronic module) is an electronic body control module that regulates electrical flow through a number of accessories.

These factory module boards are notorious for acting quirky by failing to ground intermittently until failing completely. I would be cautious in replacing ignition switches, locks, etc. as the issue can be also compounded by corrosion of the main battery ground wire in the engine compartment and which can cause frying of your under dash wiring into the main wiring harness which can get expensive (i speak from experience having had the exact same syptoms). My issues were that these symptoms occurred only in full ON. When in key BACK ACC mode, they disappeared.

New price for one of these modules is around $280-$300 and easily replaced.

Good Luck

1986 corvette electrical problems.


since you have power in both states its obvious that you have a ground wire problem this is very common on vettes due to fiberglass body your gonna have to take dash pad out and trace down both grounds on these 2 areas till you find the loose or broken wires theres a huge amount of ground wires from those locations on a block between the battery and firewall under the hood use a volt meter make sure you have it grounded and search the circuits 1 at a time ..i also have an 86 vette and have had similar problems if your not a good electrician youl just be pulling your hair out,, another way is,, if you cant beat em join em ,, try pulling a new wire to the effected circuits from a ground point on the fire wall make sure battery is grounded properly reattach any broken or loose ground straps you find around engine compartment these are braided bare wires going from engine to frame and from battery to fire wall etc hope this helps you im lucky i have some electrical knowledge because it can be frustrating
