Pull off the small solenoid wire to the starter, and check for voltage there, with key held in cranking position. If power there, the solenoid or starter needs testing. If no power to solenoid with key in crank, the start circuit from ignition switch to the solenoid will have to be checked-the starter relay and the park/neutral switch (or, the clutch switch if manual trans.).

SOURCE: shuts off while driving. no fuel pressure. pcm fuse blows/ fuel pump relay inserted.

Sounds like the fuel pump is shorted.

SOURCE: truck will crank but not

try spraying a little air intake cleaner into throttle body while cranking (to check for a possible poor fuel pump, just cause you hear it does not mean it produces enough pressure) also pull a spark plug wire off stick a screwdriver into it laying near a ground source and crank engine(do not hold on to it as it can give you quite a jolt) do this to check for spark, if you have none chances are you have a bad module (ignition) it is located in the distributor. there is also a coil inside the distributor that i have had to replace in the past , it is almost simpler to just put in a good used distributor

03 chev cavalier yesterday the car wouldn't even turn over. Today nothing happened on the first crank then started on the 2nd crank no problem. later turned over not a problem at all. Any ideas??

Next time it doesn't start, move the shift lever to NEUTRAL. Then try to start. If it cranks in neutral, that would be a sign of a misadjusted cable or bad transmission park/neutral switch. Could also be a bad ign switch or other issues. If the shifter doesn't help checking for power at the starter when turning the key to start. If no power, work backwards to the IGN switch

My 97 legacy outback has had a dead battery for a few weeks so I charged it and it fired right up. I drove it and had no problem. It sat over night , I tried to crank it the next day and the starter is...

Get someone to give you a jump start and drive the car for about 15 min. This should charge the battery. If the battery loses charge , the problem might be the battery itself, with a bad cell. this means replace the battery . Sometimes new batteries are defective (bad cell) and will not hold a charge. Or, the battery might be old and not work correctly. Another thing you can do is check the battery connections at the battery terminals. These have to be tight, clean and snug. The battery has to have at least 550 cold cranking amps or more if you have a six cylinder engine. The next thing to do is check the charging system , and if there is a problem replace the alternator.

Where is the starter relay located on a 1993 jeep cherokee 2wd.

93 is first good year for all jeeps, lucky you are. YJ jeep.
which engine?
ask for help not parts, parts online shows all parts so there is never a need to ask that.
ask why the starter is dead. (well what transmission) auto or stick?

no noise means NO CRANK, no engines un cranked but my M/T
fails hot and cold some times , good input , rare this. here.
and 2wd too boot, very rare this fact. stated.

when a car does not crank what do we do. (easy to hard just like AAA tow does)
  1. i wiggle key, at start position, crank now.?
  2. i wiggle the shifter, in park, and crank (PRNDL switch issues)
  3. same but move shifter to neutral, (keyon, foot on brake shift to neutral and crank, cranks now? neutral contacts good park bad.
  4. next if all above fails, (all free to do) we next check battery volts. 12.6vdc i good, 11v bad, charge it or get a new one.
  5. I then jumper cable jumper battery off runnning donor car, like AAA does. crank now? yes, battery has issues, common as nails that. No crank now, so.
  6. I then hot wire the starter soleniod. keys in pocket, it does not crank the starter is bad. it cranks now the key line is bad or

A real FSM book, online, and free.

click 93 jeep, click wiring. pdf page 64 shows your relay.
see that the fuses need to be good
and the PRNDL switch energizes the starter relay.
the PRNDL ground the relay coil , the coil gets power from the Ign. switch and RELAY pin 29 goes to 12v cranking (11v typ) and the starter cranks.
that is how it all works.
if you have a volt meter all this is super easy, and no guessing needed. ever.
if you buy a new relay and it dont fix it ,you will be back here.

No start when very cold

Put a product called "heat" in the gastank. This sounds like water in the gas lines is freezing when really cold.

Drove my 1998 yukon last night and parked in the driveway where it sat thru the blizzard chicago had last night.tried to start it this am but no luck. checked spark,fuel @ the shrader,battery, ground...

pull dist cap off and dry with a hair drier. also make sure air cleaner is clean and dry. You dont need to unhook plug wires just tip cap on side and dry with heat. and also check ign wires plugs for moisture which shorts things out.

1994 corolla: hard to start

If it is happening more frequently in cold or damp weather it could be a spark issue. Wet or damp weather can effect spark plug wires if there is even minor damage to them (usually occurs durring rain). The other things that come to mind are the fuel pump and lastly the fuel line check ball that is in the fuel tank. If it is leaking then all the fuel in the line will drain back into the tank over night (pressure lost in the fuel line) and this will cause repeated, extended cranking when you first start the car in the morning or after the car has sat for several hours.
