Assuming there is fuel getting to the engine(no gas...check filter[should be along frame under driver's seat], pump pressure and kill switch[should be under dash near heater duct]) and of course, there is spark(replace coil pack if wires check good), I would check the the battery. Just because it seems to have a charge it may be strong enough to crank the starter under load. This is also assuming that the engine cranks...the solenoid is bad if the engine only cranks when the solenoid is shorted to make a complete circuit. You didn't say if it was manual or automatic, manual requires the clutch to be held down to start engine. Hope that helps

Start by making sure batery posts are clean inside and out. Try a diferent battery.
Did the jumper cables get hooked up backwards ?
Add coments to your post , and if these don't work , myself , or someone else will tell you how to test your starter and solenoid.

89 chevy shuts off after 30 sec of being jump start


I suggest that you have a load test done on the battery as from your description there is a dead cell . Coming to a stop is when the engine is idling and the output of the alternator is below that required to supply current to the ignition system. With a dead battery and jump starting it is possible that the CPU program is corrupted so after you fit a good battery use a scanner to reset the CPU program

Try starting the vehicle in Neutral. If it starts and jumps from the solenoid mounted on the firewall then there is either a circuit break or the neutral safety switch is faulty or the cable is maladjusted

My car will not start. it does not turn over but there is power until you try to crank it. It will start if it is being jumped but as soon as you shut it off it will not crank again.


Replace the battery! Sounds like you have power but not enough to turn the car over. If you don't have any light on when it's running then it sounds like you battery is old and needs replacing. As the only thing you are doing by jumping it is giving athe battery a helping hand I'd say that is where your problem lies.
Also by the best battery you can - they last longer!

Im not sure what you mean by I jumped out the starter relay and the starter engaged.
so i am going to assume that you jumped from the battery side to the starter side on the relay and that engaged the starter... which is fine but you say the relay clicks when u turn the key. Pull off the clip on wire from the relay and push it against the battery side connection on the relay (u may need a small screwdriver to assist the connection) the relay should cause the starter to engage. If it just clicks (my bet) then you need to replace the relay (its really called a solenoid )

Weak spark + 1988 ford bronco


check the voltage of the b+ terminal of the ignition coil (primary side) with a cheap multimeter while cranking. low voltage to the primary will cause low voltage on the secondary. also recheck all ground paths from the ignition module. ensure good connection from coil to module. note: new parts are not "known good parts" until it runs.--> IG.MOD.
