Question about Chevrolet Prizm

1 Answer

Sometimes refuses to start again after being driven. Starts after short cooling-off period.

1991 Geo Prizm sometimes refuses to start after being driven. After a short 5-30 minute cooling-off period, it starts again. Several weeks later, it happens again. Any season, any outside temperatures. Chevrolet Repair mechanics have no clue what the problem is.

Need more information what has been added within the vehicle? If there has been a remote starter, aftermarket alarm or radio, that is where I would start looking. A 13 year old.vehicle could have any kind of things added to them.

1991 geo prizm, battery light and brake light in the dash stay lit when you start the car. The car still runs fine just the dash warning lights stay on. The alternator was replaced maybe three years ago,...


Yes, it could be. Or you can check your battery. And try adding brake fluid to your master cylinder. That sometimes will cause the brake light to come on. Or check your emergency brake. Hope this helps, James Booth.

I have a 97 geo prizm...when i turn the key it majes a clicking sound from underneath the hood and it only starts after i turn the key a few times.............HELP


Sounds like you need an ignition. Turn your key to the on position and cross the terminals on your starter with a screwdriver. Do this several times (Have somebody turn the key off and back to the n position). If it starts like this every time You need to replace the ignition. Or you can replace the whole column, sometimes this is easier then replacing just the ignition.

Cranks sometime


You have burnt/pitted contacts in the starter solenoid, very common on Nippondenso starters, which the Geo uses. If you can get just the contacts rebuild it, otherwise replace the solenoid and or the starter, if you have really high miles it is better to replace the whole starter with a rebuilt unit from any quality rebuilder, Delco is a real good one, The best price I found was at Rockauto.com, $72.00 for a Delco rebuilt unit. Contacts are availiable from Ohiomotor.com
