Question about 1994 Oldsmobile Bravada

1 Answer

Is there a inursha switch on the 1994 bravada? we bought the truck used and on the way home it died and we cannot restart it. we are trying to remove the fuel tank to replace the fuel pump but the bolts are rusted. however we wondered if this model had an inursha switch that may have triggered on a bumpy road or something... that we might be able to reset to start the truck.

NO switch, but there is a relay under the hood just to the passenger side of the brake booster along the firewall. Check the relay and the fuse under the dash, drivers side. Change the fuel filter if you can hear the fuel pump prime the system for the first 3 seconds when the ignition is placed to the run position. The fuel pressure too should be 60psi to 65psi during prime with the engine not running, you should check that at the shredder valve. The good news is the fuel pump on your 94 is less expensive then the 95's and newer. Good luck and hope this helps.

    There is a wire harness that runs from the frame to the gas tank that get's corrode and may have gone bad. It's on the driver's side, you can un-clip the connection and test it for power, the other thing to is to check the fuel pressure at the shredder valve to make sure you have 60psi to 65psi. Any other readings will give you a no start. If the fuel pressure is good then check the Ignition control module (ICM) which is in the distributor under the rotor, it cost around $40.00 and Auto ZOne will have the step by step instructions to replacing it in about 30 min. Keep me posted, just trying to keep you from dropping the gas tank for another problem then the fuel pump.

I have a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada I have changed the fuel pump and the fuel regulator it will run a short distance then it will die then I have to wait for it to cool down and then it will restart what is...

First, try bypassing the inertial safety switch (common failure) using a simple jumper wire across the two contacts of the connector. If you do not know where the inertial safety switch is, consult your Onwer's Manual.

If that corrects the problem, simply replace the switch (low-cost item from your local parts store).

If not, it may be the first signs of a failing ECU. GM ECUs will exhibit that failure initially before failing entirely.

Instrument cluster

Cold solder joints were a common problem with GMC instrument panels of that time. I've found surface mount resistors just rolling around inside panels with some just plan gone. If so you can get a panel from junk yard remove parts from that & fix yours. Removal & repair is not all that hard.

Any dash lights outages? Common wiring problem in some GM steering consoles cause this type of problem. Also I have heard of distubutor failures. You should see a SES (service engine soon) light on bad crank position sensors.

94 Bravada that stumbles and stalls.. won't start when warm..

Try checking the exhaust flow when someone else is pushing down on the gas petal.The farther the petal gos down,the more exhaust should be coming out. I replaced my catalitic convertor at 44000 miles, it was clogged. I had them install a high flow type.

Cant find fuse for headlights on 94 bravada

The 94 Bravada did not use a conventional fuse, instead uses a "fusible link" that comes directly from the starter post and supplied battery voltage to the headlight switch.
The fuse link looks like an ordinary wire with usually a short " white plastic sleeve" that appears to be part of the wire.
The blown fuse link will pull apart easily if it is blown.
Any other questions, let me know.
