Question about 1995 Geo Metro

1 Answer

I need diagram for 1995 geo metro where postive wire gets hooked up

Wire goes to starter, and battery, but do not know where the rest of the wires go to. Please help I have replaced the starter because of a clicking solenoid, sometimes starts and sometimes clicks. Still just clicks, battery good, new starter, ran wire from solenoid to battery when key on and starts fast and every time. When I connect the cars wire back to the solenoid it clicks. Help!

Your starter will have two electrical
connections, the big one should be hot all the time and that one
actually powers the starter motor. Check it for battery voltage. The
'click' you are hearing is probably the starter solenoid. It will have
the smaller wire hooked to it, and the other end of that wire is
connected to the ignition switch. The neutral safety switch you refer
to is between the ignition switch and the solenoid.

Want to rule the neutral safety switch out? Put the key in, turn it to
run, and put the car in D. Now turn the key all the way to start. You
shouldn't hear the click. Put it in neutral, you'll either hear the
click or it should start. Same in Park, it should either click, or
depending on your luck, it will turn over and start. All other
positions, you should not hear the solenoid click.

If that test goes okay then you should still test the starter solenoid
by itself. Start by testing for battery voltage at the solenoid
connection while you have a helper turn the key all the way to the
start position. With the load of the solenoid in place the battery
voltage will drop, but you should see the same voltage at the battery
and at the solenoid terminal. Any loss of voltage here would tend to
implicate the wiring between the battery, ignition switch, neutral
start switch, any alarm you might have, and the starter. If you have
your helper hold the key in the start position when it isn't cranking
you can use your voltmeter to measure across the battery terminals,
and then between the negative terminal and the solenoid terminal. Both
readings should be very close to one another.

Another way to check it is to use a jump wire to manually connect the
solenoid connection to the positive terminal on the battery. If you
put the key in, turn it to the run position, and then jump the
solenoid connection, the engine should turn over and start. If you get
the click no-start treatment going this way, I would check the big
connection at the starter and both of the battery cables at the
battery, make sure both are clean and tight. If both of those are good
I'd pull the starter, as it is probably worn out.

Given the fact that you're at 130k you're probably about due for a
starter anyway, and if I had to make a guess as to what is wrong
without seeing the car based on what you are describing, I would
suspect the starter is probably what is at fault.

Good luck with it.

Need a under hood wiring diagram for a 1995 geo metro

if you are looking for a diagram that shows wires under the hood you are out of luck, a wiring diagram looks like a schematic, pages
of lines like a grid with abbreviations.but you won't find one that shows wire locations, sorry, you can probably get a parts store to copy schematics for you, or go to chilton on demand
