SOURCE: My 99 GMC sonoma wont start..

ok... there are a couple of things you can do. i must have miss typed on the cap,rotor . in the back of the motor where the plug wires conect that is the cap that is bolted to the distributor with two torques bits that i believe are t15 in size. there may lie your problem. the posts inside are made of aluminum and they get coroded and dont alow the proper spark. the other commen problem is the exhaust the catalitic converter becomes pluged up. something you can try is remove one of the oxigen sensors and try to start it up if it runs the cat needs replaced. the o2 sensor is a 7/8 nut to remove it. give it a try

SOURCE: wont shift back from 4x4 low, to 2x2

I also have a 2002 Envoy. Shifting to and from 4wh and 4wa can be done on the fly but shifting to 4wL has to be done stoped and while in neutral. Try that. Otherwise I'm afraid its a new computer for you. Its located under the left rear seat and you need a loan for one.

SOURCE: The fuel gauge doesn't read right, makin' low fuel light flash

if the fuel pump is all in-tank; the sending unit built in to the fuel pump is most likely malfunctioning; if so, this will require removal and replacement of the entire fuel pump, sometimes expensive, others not so much

2004 F150 shut off while driving. all lights work but engine will not turn over. fuel shut off switch will not reset. If fuel pump goes bad the motor should still turn over right? Should I replace switch?

Fuel Shut off won't be tripped, unless you
were in an accident, and it won't go bad

You obviously have the Battery,Starter Solenoid,
the Starter,all of which have to be tested,first

You go to get it turning over before you check
other issues if necessary

Okay, seen this before and its part of the Antitheft system or Power Minder system.. You need to pull out the new battery and charge it to at least 13.2 Volts. A fully charged Battery goes from 13.2 to 13.4 Volts. The Antitheft system and Power Minder will actually disconnect the charging circuit while you are driving. It takes a certain minimum voltage to keep the charging circuit working.

I have jump-starter similar trucks and even if you have a Battery charger running, within 5 minutes of removing the Boost, the charging circuit will default and the Battery will discharge. The 7 Volts is about 1 Volt more than we had to our Starter.. The Power Minder system reads the discharge from the low Battery voltage and kills the power circuit to save the Battery drain. The Antitheft wants to kill the Starter for theft protection.

Someone should open a case with the NHTSA on this. But replacing a Battery is so random to Battery life expiration that the Engineering problem will be overlooked. I hope my solution is very helpful to you, but about all you can do is Zap the battery to the Max. The underlying problems will remain underlying until Ford does a TSB on this.

If the starter doesn't turn over the battery is dead or you need to replace the starter.

The gas gage not working is caused by the fuel level sender located in the fuel tank this will also need to be replaced.

2003 Hyundai Santa Fe. Won't start. no sound from starter. Not sure I hear the fuel pump start up. Does this car have a reset switch for the fuel pump like the Ford Escort and other cars?

Start from scratch.
Does the battery have 12 volts across the terminals? If yes, then does the starter click when you turn the key? If no, replace the battery.
If the starter clicks when you turn the key, but the engine doesn't crank, replace the starter.
If no click, then check for power at the starter solenoid.
If there is power at the solenoid, but no click when you turn the key, check the starter relay. If none of this fixes your problem, you may want to have your mechanic check for broken or corroded wires

Car will not crank over

there are no sensors on any car that would keep the starter from engaging even if the fuel tank was completely removed remove the starter and have your local oreillys or autozone bench test it if its good then you have an electrical issue could be related to your ignition switch, starter and or ignition relay or fuses check all of those
