Question about 1994 Pontiac Firebird
It has a new battery and a new fuel filter, it is an automatic. now it is not starting at all. it sounds like it is trying to start but it just doesnt turn over when it did work before it died when put into reverse
Test the alternator, see the diagram attached. God bless you
Sympton: Battery slowly goes dead, but ammeter sometimes shows a positive charge.
This is usually a bad diode in the alternator, less often a bad regulator. There may also be a high current draw from some components, overwhelming the alternator capacity. With the ignition switch on but the engine off, turn things on, one at a time. Check the ammeter for an indication of excessive current draw.

SOURCE: wont start
Have you tried to charge that battery? If you have and get the same result check your battery terminals for corrosion. If they are fine your battery may have failed.

Probably need the computer reset. All these cars now days are set up for the dealer to screw you. The fix yourself is about history

Check the fuel pump inline resistor located on the right side front fender between the frame and the windshield washer fluid canister. When this resistor goes bad those are the symptoms.
