Have a diagnostic scan done at your local auto parts...they usually will do this for free. See if any codes come up related to the problem you are experiencing
I would go for the obvious and do a full tune up, especially changing out the fuel filter.

Try checking relays in the fuse box under the hood. If all checks out ok, check timing belt/chain.

SOURCE: doesn't start

To put it simply it's either spark, fuel or compression. If the timing belt is okay (not broken or timing marks don't line up) and you have spark, you need to make sure you have clean gas and not water (from condensation) or air being sprayed out the injector nozzles. Try using quick start spray or even pouring some gas down the trottle body and see if it starts. If it does then check the relays, pump and lines. I've seen pin hole leaks in lines that caused symptoms similar to vapour lock. Check the
Main EFI relay (it's under the dash near the brake pedal) they usually stop working when the car is parked in the hot sun. Sometimes leaving the doors open, or pushing the car into the shade so it can cool down, will get the car to start again. I would get a distributor and a Main EFI relay from a junkyard. Because it's too expensive just swapping in new parts, and it's always a good idea to keep a spare distributor around as they are known to go bad on old Integra's.

Have your alternator checked. Most auto supply places do this at no charge. Multiple dashboard warning lights usually indicate alternator problems.

Ok then, from your description and the
make/model/year of the car you have there,
it appears you've reset the VATS.

The car's security immobilizer
reader at the key switch
does not recognize the coded
chip in the ignition key any longer.

You can try to put the key
in the ignition, turn to the on position &
wait at least 10 min like that.
(Do not turn off the key switch before
10 minutes as elapsed!)

Once done, the key is re-programmed and
should allow the fuel injectors to work again.
The car would start now if corrected.

In some cases, the VATS (GM'S VEHICLE ANTI THEFT SYSTEM)
will re learn the code this way, and will then
allow the restart, however if this does not work,
then you can simply tow it to any GM vehicle dealer
to have the service department re code it.

There is a permanent solution though.
Adding the PLJX Self learning Bypass module (59.95)
will bypass the PASSLOCK system in your vehicle
for good. See this at www.PASSLOCK2.com

Good luck I hope method 1 does the trick!

Here is the 30 min relearn:

Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself.

What makes the fuel pump not kick on on a 92 Oldsmobile Cutlass


There is a red wire close to the battery in the front. It's not connected to anything. Apply positive voltage and that will run your pump for testing purposes.

92 ford explorer wont start when it is hot. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel regulator, fuel relays, IAC valve, ran a new wire to the fuel pump, and changed the fuel twice.


Take it to Ford and have them run their troubleshooting machine on it.Costs about 70 bucks and sometimes if they do the repair,this cost is removed from the bill. Ask Ford. don-ohio

We put new fuel pump on a 92 ford taurus 3.0 and it still wont start


Have you tried replacing the fuel filter. If the filter is plugged your car will not start no matter how good your fuel pump is. Hopefully this helps you out.

Hi, i have a eb falcon sedan, just put new fuel pump in. there is no power coming to the pump. where would i start looking to solve the problem.


Common problem is the Fuel Pump Relay behind the battery and under the coolant tank. They fail all the time. There is also a fusable link. Dont get confused though as the ECU relay (same type) also fails which you can tell by having no spark too.
