Welcome to Fixya! I would get the Obvious out of the Way First. Look under the Hood and Locate the Fuse Relay Box. Inside the Box Covers Lid is the Diagram. Locate the Relay for the Starter and Replace. Let me know if this works or not. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

Try to find out if there is spark on all cylinders, if there is no spark, then it is a distribution problem.

If you still get the problem, then ry doing an injector cleaning.

If still no luck, do an ECU scan using a code reader, to find out faults related to electronic injection system.

I replaced my ignition in my 2001 Cadillac deville and got the key programed but it still wont start


Maybe not be a key problem , is the security light lit when trying to start the vehicle ? Why did you replace the ignition ? Ignition switch ? Who programmed the key ?
Moving the ignition switch to the CRANK position sends a 12 V signal to the PCM Ignition Crank Sense. The PCM verifies that the transmission is in the PARK or NEUTRAL position. The PCM then grounds the control circuit of the START relay. When the START relay is energized it allows voltage to the starter solenoid S terminal.

I have a 2002chevy venture it wont start up it seems to be getting fuel an fire to the plugs it cranks but wont start spray starting fluid in it an starts but wont start on its on


How do you know it's getting Fuel? Sure sounds like it is not getting fuel since the car will Giggle when Starter Fluid is added.
Can you hear the Fuel pump run for a second when you turn the key to the RUN position?

1.6L or 1.8L vastly different engines... and EFI.
fuel to the rail , only means the pump is active , never good.
28PSI is minimum on all cars. 1psi will never start a car. ever
and the rail will shoot fuel, all day. it fruitless , unless the rail is dead.
see?
First the laws of EFI. (works all gas EFI)
  1. all fuses good.
  2. 12vdc to EFI system , below 10v is bad. (see lamps dim? bingo)
  3. The PCM (EFI brain) will never inject if it sees CMP/CKP or spark primary dead. ever. so, spark is first.
that is double reasons, fuel cant burn if no spark and if ECU
thinks spark is bad it cuts fuel, (fire safety and fuel hydralocking reasons)

so you connect any scan tool to the DLC, OBD2 port , by knees.
and crank for 5 seconds, release key, no turn off
see DTCs (errors) for CMP, or CKP sensors (cam/crank?)
bingo
no, then you crank and look at the RPM PID , live data stream the scan tool, see RPM go to 250rpm cranking, good.
ok , PCM thinks all is good....

i then check the #1 injector with a NOID lamp
i crank it flashes, good.
if not , i do all injectors , if one fails the pcm is dead on this line.
if yes, all dont flash the PCM is seeing some gross errors. ask. why./?
if all flash, then the fuel rail is dead. and your rail test was useless.

until you discloses engine option (size) I cant give spec numbers.
i then connect my fuel pressure gauge $20 tool to the fuel rail test
port, and i get 10psi, FAIL
i check voltage to the fuel pump cranking, i get 8v, bingo bad wiring
or bad fuel pump relay.
say 10psi and 12v at pump cranking,
the pump is bad, or the filter clogged , or the fuel pressure regulator
is stuck wide open killing all legit pressure.

that is how i do it.
keep in mind the PCM cant see fuel pressure on most cars.
some newer cars have this sensors. (nice)
low fuel pressure,. renders the whole EFI , useless. just junk.

Vr4 won,t start was going an is turning over


It may not be getting fuel. You have to maybe look to changing the inline fuel filter or have the fuel pump itself checked for operation. The fuel pump is in the gas tank, but you can check fuel flow by separating the line at where it goes into the injectors. Put a plastic container under the line where separated and crank the engine a couple times and see if you have fuel flow. Often times the inline fuel filter gets gunked up by sediment from the gas tank and blocks fuel flow.

Hello You will have to reset your fuel pump switch located passenger side right foot kick panel when you press it it should stay down if this does not work your probably looking at a fuel pump not working.

1989 Cutlass wont start

Ran out of fuel


The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure.I also suggest you turn key to on position to let electrical system run fuel pump and when ready to crank over engine have battery hooked up to a battery charger this should do it!!

2001 cavalier died while driving, now it wont start


Could be failed fuel pump. Disconnect fuel line at engine and turn over a couple times having something to catch gas in. If electric pump don't turn over engine, just turn key to run position for a few seconds. Maybe clogged fuel filter or faulty pump if no gas shows. Change fuel filter and try again. If none, change pump.
