It will if you have the Code book to tell you what Codes are What. Try Locating the Fuse Relay Panel under the Hood, Look for the Relay that is Marked "Fuel Pump" "Starter" Replace these and see what you Have. Also, Check the Tension on your Belt. If the Belt Tensioner is not holding the Belt Tight Enough you will get the No Start Prob as Stated above. Let me Know! Please Rate my Response, I need all the Help That I can Get! Thanks!

Electric fuel pump works when hooked directly to battery but not to original leads

Many shade tree guys will tell you run a switch and direct wire. This is not a good answer. The circuit includes an oil pressure switch which kills the pump in the event of an accident, to prevent the pump from running and feeding gas to a possible fire. There is also a bypass to supply juice while cranking. Fix it right! Check fuel pump fuses (sometimes two) and fuel pump relay.

Whats pulling the battery down and causing my 2002 blazer not to turn over

Is the battery new? Does it start fine until it sits overnight? Have you checked the alternator? Does the battery have sufficient cold cranking amps,dead cell? Is an interior light staying on, glove box light? Do you have an aftermarket stereo with an amp?

Jeep trouble code 320 and 743

One problem at a time please. Let's get the engine running All the time! First, it seems that the battery is weak, perhaps old and past its prime (thus the jumper cables worked). Or, maybe you just need to clean off the battery terminals on the battery and the connecting cables. When did you replace the plugs, wiring harness, distributor cap and rotor last? Perhaps just cleaning them up will do the trick. Also, check that the grounding cables all over the engine compartment are clean and tight.

1999 jeep grand cherokee ran fine then filled with gas Next time It wouldn't crank for 2-3 times . Changed spark plugs and ran out the old gas Still takes 2-3 times for it to cranksomeone said to...

Try cheking the starter connections, the battery to motor ground, battery to body ground and motor to body ground strap for corrosion. They can be corroded under the bolts and cause all kinds of electrical problems.

91 S-10 won't crank over. Has battery power. Ran

After it fired right up, it stopped working? Check your fuel pressure as your fuel pump may have quit working.

Ran out of gas on a 1997 gmc jimmy and 4 days later it just cut off and than it won,t crank I let it sit for a minute and than it crank but it happen again. What to do?

Cranking and fuel issues are two separate things. Check age of battery and voltage across terminals. Does it always crank as long as you hold the key but not start? If cranking okey,check fuel pressure,key -on,cranking,or if it does start. Check battery cables for corrosion,also inside cables. Do,a voltage drop test on both cables.. Need a meter or just have a shop pick it up and take care of it.

93 LX 5.0 replaced battery, ran fine then would not start

sounds like you have a good battery, get the car started put a voltmeter to wire connected to the back of your alternator. if you have at least 13.25 volts you have a good unit if any lower replace the alternator
the click sound you are hearing comes from your relay it is getting low voltage from the battery. because the battery has no juice caused by a bad alternator

hope to help shack
