Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Ok my 97 grand prix has a no start condition when the switch is turned the engine turns over its getting spark it has a new fuel pump. But the fuel pump doesn't come on when the switch is turned on and when the engine is cranked over the fuel injectors are not working. I got this car from a family member who drove it home from work one day and the next day it would not start that was a year ago. I think its something electrical because the fuel system is all that doesn't Work when the key is turned on or the engine is cranked over . I would be greatful for any help.

Hi
I would strongly suggest you get a diagnostic test carried out to verify this fault, althoug it sounds like a main engine relay or ecu problem.
I am sure there are mobile technicians in your area who can pop round and test this fault for you.
Thanks
Roger

SOURCE: car tries to start but doesnt, it just spits & sputters

I had the same problem all of these models do, but GM wont recall them. Here is what you do if you have not yet, turn to key to on but don't start the engine all the lights in the dash will go on, when they turn back off see if your security light stays on or blinks. If it does its your Pass Lock security system. You can reprogram it using the key, take the key out then put it back in the ignition move it all the way to ON but don't turn on the engine when the lights in the dash go out turn the key back to the ACC position leave it there for ten minutes the light should turn off after about ten min. then turn the key to the OFF position pull it out about 1/4 of the way then push it in and start it up. If this is the problem you may have to do this any time it does not start up.

SOURCE: 97 Avenger will not start!

your coil could have gone out, you could need a new distributor, and your fuel pump could be out. but one thing is the fuses and relays check those as well. there is a relay and fuse for almost anything and that would explain why it all of the sudden happened.

SOURCE: car cranks but doesn't start changed fuel pump, changed fuel filter, no security system. fuel injectors and pump work and have new plugs

Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drivetrain is fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Powertrain Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s)

Car turns over but will not start . client says the codes told him it was a nutral sending switch , which was replaced and yet the condition continues . any idea which direction to look .


If the car is cranking, the neutral switch is ok. you need to check for fuel to the injectors, which you can do by spraying starting fluid into air cleaner ( brake-cleaner or carb cleaner also work for this) if still no start, check for spark. If no spark, check coils and spark plugs. also commonly these cars loose the crank sensor due to failing harmonic balancers. you can check this by looking at the lower engine pulley while someone turns over the engine. if the pulley is loose or moving up and down, start there.
