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

My 1990 geo prizm won't start and there's no interior lights what can be the problem


hello ,
wont crank or cranks fast but wont start.? (2 different answers)
you must tell the helper all things that work or dont work
that is how electrics function, by branches .
1: head lights work high and low beams. ( dim or dead?)
2; heater fan work on high?
3: radio.
4: cluster glows those warning lamps as all do key on (y/n)
5;cranks
6: interior lamps dead, my guess you mean the dome lamps.?
try to be more clear as to which of the many lamps inside are dead.
7: if its a no crank, car, say so, and check for green battery lugs
we clean them , if not corroded ,then we next jump start the car
using jumper cables, per instructions on the box.

is car automatic trans?
if yes and wont crank try cranking in Neutral not park.
step on brake /and key on, and shift to N.
then crank.

I turn key and 97 geo prizm doesn't start i have radio & it honks but doesn't crank it turns but nothing


If the engine turns then you need to check for fuel and spark. If the engine is not turning over then you need to check the fuse for the starter and the starter itself.

Geo wont start after running dry


Hello, I would replace the fuel filter. Sometimes the sediment gets sucked up by the fuel pump when run out of gas and clogs the fuel filter. Good luck.

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.

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.

97 geo metro wont crank!


Have you checked the timing belt. Also it could be a carburator problem if its starting and dying

Geo metro 97. Runs great for a day then wont start the next


Your timing belt is worn out. Some days it runs good because the cogs are lined up. The next time you start it, it maybe backfires just a touch, and it's out of time. Today, it's really out. Or maybe even broken.
