SOURCE: 91 festiva wont start

First make sure that the battery is charged up all of the way and that a positive 12V current is reaching the positive terminal of the starter motor. You can test it with an inexpensive 12V test light available from any auto parts store for about $10. You need that for diagnosing any electrical problems if you have checked the fuses and they are all good. Its also possible that the fusable link got shorted out and that will stop the car from turning over. The fusable links are 3 wires sticking up from a small box on the drivers side shock mount in the engine compartment. Check that they are not burned. If all of that is good, then use your test light to see if 12V current is reaching the ignition switch under the plastic cover behind the steering wheel and on the opposite side of the key.

SOURCE: battery was stolen 1993 ford festiva replaced it

check the fusible links that are located on the strut tower right by the battery. They are 3 wires sticking out of a box. They may have got knocked when they battery was stolen and now are not making the proper connection. They are notorious for corroding and breaking connection.

Why is my ford festiva is misfiring


It could be a few different things. Bad plugs, bad plug wires, dirty rotor/distributor cap, or a vacuum line that isn't working properly to name a few to start with. I'm wrenching on a 91 Festiva right now as well... Let me know what you've come up with so far and I will see what I can do to help.

Died like the key was turned off


I think you need to replace the pick-up coil under the distributer cap>The ignition modual can cause this but useually would'nt last for more than a few minutes.If you take off the distributer cap and remove the rotor button and then remove the plate under where the rotor button was you will find the pick-up coil.note;you will need a 5.5mm socket to remove the plate but a 7/32 in. socket can be tapped on.

91 Accord Car will initially start then when driving it will die sometimes starts right away sometimes 10 or 20 minutes later but has gotten more frequent about dying and taking longer to start


I have a 1991 honda accord dx that had the same problem. while driving it would just completely shut down. after about 5 minutes it start and run for a while then shut down again getting more frequently. There was a recall on the ignition control module (ignitor) which is in the distributor. call your local honda dealer with your vin # and will tell you if yours was replaced. If not I bought one from parts store for $60 or you could take a chance and buy one from a junk yard. I bought the whole distributor for $20 as a back up.
