SOURCE: 1994 geo tracker fuel problem

The fuel pump has 2 sources of power, when you crank the engine power to the pump is supplied through the cranking circuit of the ignition switch, after it starts the power comes from the run circuit, you most likely have an issue with the ignition switch.

SOURCE: 1996 Geo Tracker horn won't work. Fuses all look

well what i can say is try and rig some wire to see if the horn speaker even works and if does then you may have a short in the wiring in the steering wheel switch try and see if you can close the horn switch under the steering wheel cover where the horn switch is by removing the screws on the back un hooking the wires and then ground it out by touching the center where the bolt is after years of honking the wires may not have gotten a good first connection when the car was first made and may have broke inside and even tho the fuse may look good there might be a break you may not know about its best to use a test light there about 3 bucks and will help better find a bad fuse then just looking to see if its burnt a new fuse can still be a bad one

I have a 1996 chevy geo tracker it won't start

Hi Leigh, Have the charging rate of the alternator checked. If you have a voltage test meter, select a voltage range above 15 volts DC and measure the voltage across the positive and negative poles of the battery. It will show a low voltage before the vehicle is started. Jump start and measure the voltage again. If the voltage is about thirteen volts or more, the problem is with the battery, which you'll need to replace. If the voltage across the terminals remains at the voltage first recorded before start up, the problem is with the alternator. Regards John

There is a lot more to an automotive charging system than just the alternator and the battery. I would recommend checking the rest of the system to find out what the problem is. Please note that to do this properly, you must first understand how a charging system works. Then you must have (and know how to use) the correct equipment to perform the tests necessary to pinpoint the problem. If you do not understand this, or if you do not have the equipment, then I would recommend taking the car to someone who does.

96 geo tracker will start on time and not the

You didn't indicate that the starter turns over slow--that would be a strong indication of a bad battery, but if so, check your battery. If your battery is more than three years old, replace it. If the battery is good and you still have problems it could be a starter problem.
