Check all your relays with an ohmeter to make sure they all operate. A code would go off usually only if it is an electrical problem. If you are getting fuel and fire, and no codes it is most likely a relay. If you did have codes then I would say sensor. So check those relays

97 geo prism. Ran fine yesterday. Today went to


PRIZM.

wont crank or?

cranks fast, but will not start.?

did you try jump cables start? off a running donor car, AAA style>?

and had to disconn? what does that mean and what was results? if any.

ahhh, to fix the stuck on blinkers? i get it.

not to fix starting...



blinkers on , key off>?

that?

which engine?

http://www.fixkick.com/PRIZM.html



the engine type dictates what wiring car has. (partly)



fix the stuck blinkers first. this implies, either ignition switch failure

or gross wiring errors, hacks gone wrong.

the key swtich does turn off blinker power feed.

No spark 1995 geo prizm,battery went dead charged battery and now the car wont start and found that there is no spark


lots. (check all fuses first) (its really mostly a toyota)
which engine, the codes vary by ENGINE sizes 1.6, 1.8?
so the battery was dead, and you charged it backup.
did it read 12.6vdc rested?
then now you crank engine and it cranks at normal fast starter speed?
yes/no?
yes, and now no spark, Yes. no spark on all spark plugs?
yes, all are dead. (i guess) ever do a tune up this decade?
so you insert the diagnostic connector jumper and crank for 5sec.
you release key, not off. just release (on)
you get what DTC errors? , flash codes, the flash code tells you
which sensor failed, CMP, or CKP. (cam or crank)
#12,14,41, 43?

jumper , TE to TE1

trouble codes are UNIQUE TO PRISM car only and to each engine
sold then. so dont read about other cars codes, (useless)
and this below is very Unique to Prizm , and not GEO in general.
A continuous steady flash means that no codes are stored in memory.

95 geo prizm wont start


wont crank or will not start.? 2 unique things. no crank always results in , no start (unless you push start the car)
hot wiring the fuel pump relay or any relay in the EFI system , invites
blowing the ECU to kingdom come, bad to the bone that.
I fixed them for 50 years. (electronics controls, so know it !)
you do know its really a toyota right?
what ENGINE? each works different.
my prizm text dump.
89-02
joint venture, GM/toyota with 3 engine used.
1.8L or 1.6L
toy engine, 4aFE, 7AFE or 4AG
open hood look
or use the GM RPO tag
or Use the VIN to find motor used.
for docs?
ebay
search
Geo Prizm factory service manual, Duh?

does car start with test fuel and run, until the fuel runs out.
do you have fuel pressure, while reading the FSM , way of doing it.
some cars only make fuel pressure, cranking and runing.
other make pressure, for 3 seconds key on, and cranking and running only, and all cars drop pump and injections when ECU sees spark die.
that is why stating which Toyota engine YOU HAVE, helps with diagnosis. and please stop hot wiring your car and learn to use a voltmeter. Ive seen $3000 ECU blown up do to bad mechanics.

1994 Geo Prizm LSI running one day won't crank next day


turns over and crank are the same thing,
so you are saying it does crank over but no start,right?
you need to determine if you have at least 50psi of fuel pressure in fuel rail at reed valve.

The Prizm starts sometimes and at other times doesn't. The battery will crank but it seems like it isn't getting gas...


sounds to possibly be a intermitant fuel pump or a bad fuel pump relay. Check those areas. Hope this helps.
