THE START ENABLE MODULE MUST HAVE THE CORRECT RESISTANCE FROM THE KEY CHIP. IS THE KEY A COPY? TRY AN OHM-METER ACROSS THE CHIP TO SEE IF YOU HAVE RESISTANCE. IF NO RESISTANCE, THEN YOU MAY NEED TO REPLACE THE CYLINDER AND KEY FOUND AT MOST AUTO PARTS STORES. A LIVE CHAT MAY HELP YOU GET FASTER RESULTS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING. GOOD LUCK

Car does not start. No spark coming from ignition coil


If the starter works and there is no spark at the ignition coil, replace it. Check your center electrode wire too. A new distributor cap and rotor may be in order as well. If that doesn't fix it, your distributor is shot.

You either have a bad starter or ignigtion switch. When you turn the key on does everything else come on? I would check the starter first if you have power to everything.

97 Pontiac Firebird V6 Not Starting


The fact that it starts occassionally suggest that the problem is an unreliable spark or a fuel issue.
Here's a list of things that might solve your problem;
Check the battery, if it's weak your engine won't roll fast enough and your spark will be weak. Take it to the auto parts store and have it checked, most stores will do it for free.
If you're using old gas that could be the whole problem.
Check all the ignition wires, a loose connection or bad wire is all it would take.
Check all the ignition parts, worn or dirty parts can cause your spark to miss or fire at the wrong time or place.
Check the spark plugs and wires, fouled or mis-gapped plugs or bad wires can cause misfires and oily wires can cause your spark to go almost anywhere.
Check the choke, if it's not operating correctly it can throw your air/fuel mixture way off.
I know this is a lot of stuff to check, I tried to be thorough but I know I left out the most expensive fixes, Stator, Coil, Distributor, ect...
I hope this helps, if so, I'd be curious to know what the problem was.
