Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

1998 lumina, does not start up with key ignition turning nor by hot jumping the starter solenoid. battery is good because hot jumper wire to starter gets the engine to turn over just fine but still wont start up. Turning the key igniyion only gets the dash lights to come on, but nothing else happens.

What number fuse sockets are the security system and ignition switch in it doesnt make a sound in the starter but when jumping across post on selonoid it sparks but turn key nothing happens


if the battery is good.
and charged.
then the solenoid jumped will crank engine,(not start if you keep keys in pocket)
if that hot wire test fails and the battery and its lugs not green.
then the starter is bad.
try using a fresh known good battery first.
or jumper cable (AAA style) jump start it off a running donor car.
if the hot wire fails now, the starter is bad or the enigne is siezed.
can you spin the engine by hand, (using a socket and breaker bar , keys again in pocket::>?)
battery >>>>>>cables>>>>>starter.
this is all it take to crank the engine, just that. if you know how to hot wire a solenoid, do you? the switch below is just a jumper wire or even old screwdriver blade.

battery needs to be 12.6vdc rested, is it ? or more.
less is discharged(and normal temps, not -40F)

the oldest GC.
see photo below... jumper at J.
as you can see security has zero to do , here.
if hot wired. zero.

You are saying that the starter motor is not working, that the engine is not cranking over, even with a boost?

If so, then either there is a problem in the starting circuit between the ignition switch and the starter, or the starter is bad. There is a way to check the starter on the vehicle: the starter will have 2 electrical connections. One is the positive battery cable, and the other is a small wire connection to the starter solenoid, mounted on the starter. The key should be off, the brake set, and the transmission in park or neutral. Use a small jumper wire or a small screwdriver, and jump the battery cable connection to the solenoid connector. Take off the solenoid electrical connector if you need room to do this. With key off, the engine won't fire and run, but if the starter is good, then jumping those two connections will make the starter engage and spin the engine over. (Of course, if key is in ON, the engine should start and run.) But you are just checking starter operation, so keep the key off. If starter is good it will crank the engine over. If jumping the two connections causes nothing, then it is pretty certain the starter motor or the solenoid is bad, and you need to replace it. (Take off the negative battery cable from the battery first to remove the starter from the vehicle.)

If jumping the starter caused it to operate, the starter and solenoid are good, and there is, again, a problem in the start circuit from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. It could be simple like an electrical connection (like the one right there on the solenoid), or a component in the circuit between the ignition switch and the starter solenoid, like the neutral safety switch for example. You will need a wiring diagram and a multi-meter to diagnose further. Good luck, and hope you find the problem. Are you sure your battery is still charged up good?

Suzuki Vitara no power to starter, every thing else electrical works.


2000 VIT (which engine, 1.6L 2.0L?) what transmission, A/T or M/T
auto or stick?
chip, what chip.>??? there is no starter chip
the NO Crank this is called.
did use jumper cable jump , off a running good car? yet.
this is the #1 first check.
(starter motor work now? yes, bad battery or simply discharged)
jumper starts, dead? that means we need to do test 2.
we hot wire the starter, motor solenoid.
jump tiny wire to big lug there.
it cranks fast, (wont start, keys are in pocket for safety) yes? good
no crank hot wired is a bad starter or seized engine. (turn engine by hand?)
yes, cranks hot wired.
that means the KEY line is dead. (bad PRNDL or bad Clutch switch)
if input to above switch is bad the ignition key switch is bad.
some VIt have an immoblizer. so the light for it must not glow. if opted.
see the tricks section !!!

the below shows all possible test. and all ways to fail and how to find it.

Won't start


so stop guessing, buy an $10 voltmeter (walfart has one)
and do simple tests. all very easy, ask.
the first step is jumper cable starts, ! cranks/ pass/fail??????
my guess, this fails.
if my car dont jump start, (i can coast start my car)
i check battery voltgage, alhhhhhh 12.6vdc, good. 10v bad.
i then hot wire the starter solenoid.
dead, (or clicks) , starter bad, big cables to it bad,(x2) or engine seized. (or battery bad, blow 10v cranking is bad battery 99%
i hand turn engine by hand, it dont turn, it's seized.
it turns by hand; good.!
so lets say the hot wire test works (keys in pocket cranks but dont start now , because my keys are in my pockets for safety)

that means the KEY LINE Is dead (small wire to starter solenoid)
see here. works for all cars. (not hacked key lines, etc.)

2008 MDX will not start just clicks


corroded battery terminals, clean them, and try jumper cables.
both way use same crappy terms.
what transmission A/T or M/T my guess, A/T
so wiggle the gear shift, try neutral starts. this is the PRNDL switch
wiggling it finds new fresh brass on the switch contacts,
wiggle as you crank the key.
if that fails
then hot wire the starter solenoid.
if that act causes cranking, then the starter and battery and cables are good. and means the KEY LINE is bad.
if no crank , hot wired, then that means the starter bad. (battery good , battery charged in all cases)

see hot wiring here.

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

in a nut shell
1: battery charged at 12.6vdc. rested.
2: chock wheels, all brakes set., in PARK (or M/T in neutral.)
3: gain access to the starter
4: unplug the key line (that is the tiny wire) on starter solenoid.
5: keys in pocket
6: jumper the solenoid tiny wire, to the big outboard lug on solenoid.
grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgggggggggggggggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
it wont start, keys are in pocket.
the starter is good, i save you 1/2 the diagnosis. in 1 simple step
put the wire back removed in #4
if its dead, the KEY line is dead. ask how to fix that. next. i f so be...

2010 ford edge starts intermittently. Replaced battery - doesn't try to crank - just nothing.


Problem with 1998 Honda Accord 2010 ford edge starts intermittently. Replaced no crank is
1: a weak battery (try different good one, or jumper cable it)
2: bad cables or conn. from battery to starter.
3: bad starter.
4: bad key line (alarm cut, PRNDL switch open, bad ignition switch.
Five minutes with any voltmeter finds this easy.
or or hot wire the starter solenoid, to cut the problem in 1/2
this proves problem is in starter or battery
or in Key line, in 5 min flat, (a 100 year old test )

there are very simple tests for each of the 4. ask.

How can I jump the starter on my 91 camaro?


hot wire starter you can short out ignition switch and wiring. to jump starter ignition switch start postion.you have to run 10 gauge jumper wire from the starter solenoid positive battery terminal to starter switch or S terminal on starter solenoid this procedure take two people but better remove starter replace starter solenoid. trying jumping off starter on camaro would be dangerous you have jack up car to get to starter and wiring person laying under car hot wiring starter while other person hold ignition start position put person under car in deadly position just remove starter have auto parts check it out first replace starter or solenoid if either bad. easier hot wire starter if starter under hood like my 1977 vega monza had starter at top could take long screw driver jump starter off.on the four cylinders engines back in the 70s. camaro starter under car dangerous trying to hot wire not a good idea.

The car will not start. All the lights come on, dash, interior and head lights. The car will not turn over. It does not even try to turn over. I looked at the battery terminals and they looked very clean....


COULD BE FAULTY STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER. CHECK THEFT DETERRENT RELAY.SCAN WITH CODE SCANNER FOR THEFT SECURITY TROUBLE CODES.IF ALL IS GOOD.SHIFT TRANSMISSION IN NEUTRAL SEE IF IT WILL CRANK.FAULTY NEUTRAL SWITCH WILL CAUSE NO START PROBLEMS.

Starter will not turn with ignition key


some are fused and has relay. check fuse and relays. replace with the same type, you could try to interchange the relays if they are of the same type.
