Check that the ignition fusible link is intact. There may be an inertia switch that has shut down as it would recognise the spin out as an accident. Check with a service centre of an accredited auto electrician

SOURCE: Engine turns over but wont start

Check the cam sensor and crankshaft sensor. If either of these are defective the engine will not start or may start intermittenly.

SOURCE: engine misses, then shut off, won't start again

not sure about the 2008 model, but the earlier ones had coil pack problems. it looks like part of the rocker cover with around four torque screws holding it down and one multi plug at the end on the n/s of the engine. oh they used to blow the fuse at the same time for the engine management. 30amp dooor pillar/"A"post area. test by removing the coil pack, fitting the spark plugs into the plug outlets. earth the body of each plug and crank the engine, you shoukld see a spark, if not then there are other tests before confirming the coil pack. let me know how you get on.

SOURCE: Car will not stay on after I JUMP START

Just try to keep the gas and drive for at leat 15 min HWY if possible. Yes, it will turn off if you let go the gas, but it will restart and stay on as long as you press on gas. Just keep on driving and the computer will readjust the emission inputs and will get back to normal.

Have a 2000 geo tracker that 4-wheel drive does not work has no power going to sensors or anything

what does not work????
4wd, well its only for dirt on ice.
why are you using PT 4wd. do say what the tires are touching
we sure cant guess.that.
right now , here its 86deg F.
Im on a dirt road on my beach
Is, waitforit,, the engine is dead, right?

I crank the engine and the starter works? and the crank shaft on the engine spins? but the engine will not start. right.?
or stalls. or or or.
or head lamps are dead.
or all electrics are dead.
the car drives us from from point A to B, tell where this fails
if does.

4wd light blinks every 30 seconds and it doesn't feel like the 4wd is engaged.

wow no year car, that be hard to get accurate help no?
GEO"s run 1989 to 1998 and then became Chevy trackers later.
my guess #2 you didnt read the operators guide need one , have it ask.
nor #3 that its part time 4 wheel drive not full time
full time happened in 2004 only
the 1989 to 1989 are all the same. and beyond to 2003.
first off its best to shift in to 4wd from 2h going as slow as possible
0 mph can fail to allow shifting the transfer case is not a 4wd syncro-mesh gear (ive rebuilt them) .
what that means is move very slow and shift never fast or grind that poor little gear to *****.
Part time 4wd is only for offroad
and for ICE/snow packed road,
never for pavement, tires touching concrete or tarmac, no, do not.
the rule is 1 tire needs to be on ice or dirt, or more tires
ok now you know PT 4wd. like a champ, (or queen)

it does not give more power, only more traction, on snow/ice
Im guessing you a girl and car is on pavement only., see>?????
if im wrong tell me... cant see you, nor your car nor what car is rolling on,, nor your country. (state)
GOT ICE? we are hot down here in Texas. heaters off. hot.

now lets do front axles.
if the left fails or the right auto locks fail then
there is no 4wd, period !!!
sorry but that is a fact.
the autolocks ive seen were all bad, never ever seen say
an 1991 auto that works (long ago rusted to stuck off or stuck on)
the manual locks i like, because, they can be repaired easy
the autos can not be. (complex answer, skippped)
testing the autos is hard but on ice easy
if the tires spin up front you have a good lockup there.
forced to do that.... need videos of that , easy. ask.

btw the GEO name is just a badge (from GM)
its really a: SUZUKI
vitara world wide or sidekick usa
open hood, look up, see that sticker, "SUZUKI"
car was made in CAMI plant in Canada.

PT tests and horrors to avoid.

My 1999 chevy tracker will not start

Well the alternator won't have anything directly to do with an engine not starting. Only if the battery is dead because the alternator is not charging it.
If the engine cranks but does not start, someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors, spark to the plugs, or compression to proceed with testing.

My 2000 chevy tracker wont start

if you have not changed the camshaft position sensor you need to do that sounds exactly like my problem got the new fuel pump and filter in there and it was fine for a month then same thing started happening again, been fine for 7 months since I changed my camshaft position sensor

My 199 chevy s10 wont start for some reason. battery/starter are good. cannot smell feul when peddle is pumped from engine. attempted to start with starter fluid but would not start.

Most likely its the fuel-pump; have someone turn the power on while you listen for the fuel-pump to come on when you have the gas-cap off. Just put your ear next to the gas-filer-tube and see if you can hear a buzzing noise come on when the power is turned on and the motor is not spinning.
I would ask the dealer if it has a fuel saftey shut off switch. That switch shuts the fuel-pump off after the first hit in an accident. Its a safety feature.
