Clutch pedal switch is a possibility. Starter solenoid would be more common. Find the solenoid on the side of the starter by following the large cable from the positive battery terminal. With a multimeter, check voltage where the large cable connects to the solenoid. No voltage here means a bad connection to the battery. If that's ok, check voltage on the small wire connected to the solenoid while someone tries to start it. If you have voltage, but the solenoid doesn't click when voltage is applied, the solenoid is bad. If it clicks, the starter may be bad; pull it and have it tested at an auto parts store. If there's no voltage to the small wire, it could be the clutch pedal switch, the ignition switch, a blown fuse, or a bad connection in the wiring. You can bypass the clutch pedal switch easily with a jumper wire. Bypassing the ignition switch to check it is a little trickier; you'll need a wiring diagram to find the start wire and then you'll need to trace it to a connector, unless you are willing to strip the insulation off a spot to get the tester probe on the copper wire. If you do that, be sure to tape it afterwards.

    sure it can, if the starter hotwires, ok, on the key , line at the solenoid, that its a bad key line. next part up stream is the Clutch swtich, then key. assumes no alrams added. etc,

SOURCE: 97 Geo Metro will not start

IF you are able to jump the vehicle using cables connected to another car then it is a power issue, if the vehicle stays running after starter you can most likely rule out the regulator, it sound like the battery is weak and dieing, it can be strong enough to run the radio without having the power to start the ignition.

SOURCE: location of drain plug, fill plug and correct oil level plug for 5 speed manual transmission

I don't know if there is a fill plug. I just use the level plug located on driver's side right above the inner CV joint of the half-shaft (axle) to fill it. A piece of flexible tubing connected to a funnel works well. The drain plug is fairly near the center of the bottom of the gearbox housing (behind the bell housing). The level plug has a 24mm, fairly flat, hex head, and the drain plug is a recessed plug with a 3/8" (?) square hole (for a socket handle).

I have a 1996 Geo Metro LSI car won't start, no clicking noise but lights come on


  • sure it won't crank the engine , starter motor just clicks !
  • try using jumper cables, and crank, off a running car.?
  • Fuses all good.? test them?
  • battery terminals clean, never green?
  • A/T transmission? did you wiggle shifter, as you crank it.?
  • a/T trans, did you try starting in neutral?
  • M/T trans did you press clutch pedal harder as you cranked it over? (repeat say 3 times, see if this makes it crank)
  • try a good battery from a good car? in your car.
  • charge your battery. using a battery charger..
  • Does hot wiring the starter solenoid , make it crank over?

93 geo metro 3 cyl 5 speed standard will not start! No starter noise, the battery is full and there is a clicking coming from the major fuse box under the hood. Sometimes the clutch will not let the car...


Adjustment procedure from AutoZone.com indicates iswitch is just in front of the pedal arm under dash. Recommend you pull the connector and place a shorting wire between the terminals in the connector to see if the car will start.


CLUTCH START SWITCH
  1. Apply the parking brake firmly and place the gear shift lever in N position.
  2. Disconnect the lead wire at the switch.
  3. Loosen the locknut and screw the switch out.
  4. Depress clutch pedal all the way to the floor and then return it back 0.4-1.1 in. along its travel from the floor.
  5. Connect an ohmmeter to the switch and slowly screw the switch in until the switch is ON . Hold the switch at this position and tighten the locknut to 8-11 ft. lbs. (10-15 Nm).
  6. Connect the lead wire.

1991 geo metro intermittant starting


If the dash lights stay on and do not dim when you turn the key, (if the lights dim it's likely a bad starter) it could still be the solenoid on the starter (the + battery cable attaches to it) getting stuck, but there are a couple of other things to check. I would start (no pun intended) by putting a voltage tester on the stud for the switch wire (the small wire) at the solenoid and check if there is voltage to the solenoid. If there is, and the starter doesn't crank, it's likely the solenoid. If there's no power to the solenoid, I would trace the switch wire back checking for bad connections and then check the clutch switch. The clutch switch is under the dash aligned with the top of clutch pedal arm so that it is pushed in when the clutch pedal is pushed. It is a safety interlock to keep the car from starting if the clutch is out, but mine has occasionally not made contact. You can check it by using a DMM to do a continuity test when the button is pushed.

I have a question about a '94 Geo Metro clutch cable


First you must loosen where the cable goes to the tranny and it will give you moor playing room when connecting it .
You cannot connect it from under the hood it must be done from under the dash.
Be sure to push the seat all the way back.
