I have a 97 acheiva that wont start.

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Does the starter motor crank the engine? If so, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
Any applicable trouble codes?
I did look at your security system, it said passlock. Generally, passlock is fuel injector disable, only.
If the starter motor won't even crank the engine, have to check that system.

Pontiac g6 starting problems

Let's get this straight , in mechanic terms that we can under stand . The engine turns over when you turn the key to the start position ,but will not start an run ! Is this correct ? More then likely fuel or spark but could be a clogged air filter if you never replaced it before ! Pull a plug wire or coil if your vehicle has coil on plug ignition system , use a spark tester an crank the engine . Is there spark ? Spray carburetor cleaner into the throttle plate an crank the engine , does it try to start ? if not fuel pump problem or electrical .

Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop ! Wouldn't want you to get hurt or cause any damage to your vehicle from not knowing how to trouble shoot a no start problem . Your vehicle is very complex , computers an electrical circuits for various sensors .

Manual 1994 jetta 2.0 4 cylndr . Car will not will not turn...battery is still great...could it be an electrical problem? Where is a good place to start checking?

start with the fuses and the relays. some say ign or eng which is ignition or engine. if that is good, check the fusible link. if that is good, test to see if the started gets full voltage

Dash door and brake warning lights on; car won'tstart; seems like no gass.

There is an ECM to control the starting and running of the engine but it seldom is the problem.

First you need to isolate if it is mechanical, electrical or fuel that is causing the problem.

Remove the distributor cap and crank the engine, if the rotor turns, we can skip mechanical.

Before checking any electricals, check if there are any blown fuses both under dash and hood.

Check for power supply to distributor Black/Yellow wire with ignition switch on. If there is, pull 1 plug wire out and insert a plug to its end and ground it on the engine, NEVER groud it to the battery terminals.

Crank the engine and if you see blue sparks it is ok, reddish or yellow sparks means the coils is bad.

If no sparks, the ICM is faulty.

Test for power supply to fuel pump at initial ignition switch turned on, (2 seconds only) and while cranking. If none, the main relay is faulty.

Take care

Car won't start, key turns, and ignition clicks and car has electric power. Could it be a spark plug problem?

Can not be the spark plugs. When plugs are bad, car starts, but misses and misfires. If the ignition clicks and engine does not turn over, then you must have either a starter motor, or starter solenoid gone bad.

My truck won't start unless i shake the gear shaft

This defiantly sound like an electrical short and it won't get better with time. Check all the connections a the base of the steering post. I don't think the transmission is the sorce of the short.

Electrical problem...


before i is def not the alternator. the only job a alternator has it a car is to charge the battery when the engine is started it generates power for lights etc!!! by not starting does the engin turn atal? if the engin does not turn i would check the starter motor!! if the engine is turning i would check to see if there is a spark!! take a plug lead of and put a spark plug into it and turn the engine!! if there is no spark..then the distributor is gone!! if there is a spark them check your fuel pump!! disconnect fuel pipe and turn engine and if no fuel comes out it gone either!

hope iv helped you
