SOURCE: battery light stays on in 97 gmc

Battery light probably means low output from the alternator. You can have it checked at your local parts store. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 97 gmc pickup, 5.7 eng, fuel pump not operating,

What you need to do is check you fuel pressure. Go to a local auto parts store and buy a fuel injection pressure tester. The pressure fitting is on the top of the motor its a 3/8 ish sized metal line and has a screw on fitting like a tire valve does. This line comes up from the back of the motor to the right of the distributor and goes down into the intake. Make sure to have a rag handy to catch the fuel seepage. After you connect the pressure tester turn the key on and off three times and read the gage you should have atleast 58 pounds of pressure. If you have 56 pounds it won't run because the fuel injectors are a poppit valve style and need atleast 58 pounds of pressure to operate.

SOURCE: starting problems

With a voltmeter or test light can you check for power at the fuse block? There should be power to some of the fuses like ignition or radio, cigarette lighter. If not then check directly at battery. Some cars have fusible links between the battery and all loads, I don't know yours.

97 Nissan Sentra. Battery is fully charged but I have no power to anything in the car. What could be wrong?


Turn on the ignition and check headlights come on this will show if power is being sent to the circuits, if totally dead check master fuses (normally near the battery). Check cable connections at battery and the live(red) connection to the starter motor. There should be an earth lead (usually copper braided) between the bodywork and the engine. All connections must be tight and clean.

No Electrical power in my 97 gmc Sieara


Not stumped, your just not using a volt meter to do any testing,
to see where your so called power is not going

Also you have to look further into any fuses,fuseable links that may be open.

The only way I work on any vehicle, is to have a wiring diagram

That way you start at the battery & walk down every circuit that may
apply to the problem,TESTING as you go

What you have is an open circuit-- you have to find

Where is the starter relay in 97 oldsmobile aurora


In a '97 model car most of your relays would be in the power distribution box by the battery, but very seldom that is the problem. Truthfully, without a multi-meter and some electrical systems understanding, you would just be looking in the dark. But having checked your battery connections-both cables are snug and tight on a new, fully charged battery? And the new starter had its mounting bolts down tight and, most important, the electrical connections (large battery cable end, and the small starter solenoid wire) all put back in place and tightened down?

Well, if you got it all back together right, turning the key to crank should send voltage to the small wire on the starter solenoid, energizing it and allowing battery voltage to pass to the starter motor and thus crank the engine over. If you have a problem with the starter, that's where you start looking=at the starter. Check if the small wire has power in start position of the ignition switch. Cheery-o's!

No electric power


ken on older model cars you some times can have a bad connection
on the ground wire. I suggest you check the ground connection, the
negative terminal follow it to where it is grounded on the chassis,motor
or grounding block, make sure it is not broken and it is tight. also check the red postive follow it to its first connection make sure it is tight.

My van clicks and won't start it's a 97 dodge caravan it has a new battery


It could be a bad Starter Solenoid or Starter, or even a weak Alternator that is not fully charging the Battery when the engine is running. Make sure all connections to the Battery and Starter are tight and there is no corrosion present. Make sure the battery is fully charged and if your car is running your Alternator is at least showing 13 to 14 volts on a Volt Meter, or your Instrument Panel Gauge. Check that your Alternator Belt is tight too.

97 neon wont start i just hear a clicking noise in the relay area


1st check the connections at the battery for corrosion, clean and make sure you have a tight connection. Bring the battery to a parts store, they will check it's condition for free. It may be bad, and all you need to do is replace it. If they find it's not charged fully, bad connections at cables or alternator may be to blame.
