I ran out of diesel. put some in and car still wont start


1. The engine does not have any fuel system screw bleeder!
2. The only one way for start the engine is to fill up the tank, then turn the ignition key in "ON" position for 4 - 5 times, wait for 10 seconds between two attempts, without cranking engine.
3. After that push the clutch pedal, (if exists), to the floor, and the accelerator pedal to the floor too. Now turn the ignition key in "ON" position, wait for 5 seconds, and crank the engine for maximum 40 ... 50 seconds. Wait for 60 seconds between two starting attempts, in order to save the battery & starter motor.
4. Repeat the step no.#3 until start the engine.

IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT TOW THE CAR IN ORDER TO ATTEMPT TO START THE ENGINE!!!

Ignition is locked, recently changed battery & now can not start truck. tried reseting alarm by unhooking battery, turned steering wheel also played w/ gear shifter to no avail. 2002 avalanche


Turn on the ignition with engine OFF.
Try to start engine, then release the key to ON
Wait 10 or more minutes till SECURITY TELLTALE turns OFF.
Turn OFF the ignition, wait 5 seconds.
Repeat this procedure 3 more times, it takes 30 minutes.
You must turn the ignition key OFF before starting the engine.
To be on the safe side OFF means take the key off, and hold on your hand for 5 seconds.
If you missed something visit GM dealer, and they gladly will provide you a print out of this procedure.

1996 Oldsmobile Achieva: Security light flashes upon startup


Here is what you do, but only when the SECURITY light flashes - if it is always ON or OFF it's no use.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes ( SECURITY light will flash for 10 minutes and then stay on SOLID)
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the ignition OFF.

Start the car normally.
It has relearnt the keycode and you're good to go.
NOTICE - it takes 30 minutes to relearn, that's THREE cycles of ON - 10 minutes - OFF.

Good luck.

Engine runs wild with white smoke


If its a 4JX engine then its injectors and seals at fault dont run it any more cos it may blow up - like rods through the side !
The diesel is going straight into the engine without being injected and as the fuel lift pump is mechanical it wont stop on the key .
Should be under isuzu warranty though they are doin that repair on 1998 Troopers over here for free .

Key stuck in ignition


Be sure its all the way in park or try neutral.Its possible that security system does not recognize the key. Is security light flashing or on steady? Shut all doors and windows,trunk,hood, turn off all accessory's,roll down drivers window, turn key off and remove for at least 1 minute, insert key into ignition, try to start leaving key to run position for 20 minutes, turn key to off,wait 15 seconds, try to start again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off,wait 15 seconds, try to start, again leaving key to run, wait 20 minutes, turn key off, wait 15 seconds, try to start. This should relearn key code. It may relearn after 1 learn cycle and start if system is ok. Hope this helps and that the weather is dry and warm for this procedure! This is not always a fix, but works most of the time.

If the light has not stop blinking when you wait ten minutes then it is not going to crank. My does it a lot but after 10 minutes the light has stopped blinking. I think that the ignition switch needs replacing or maybe just the key is worn out. I think when anybody goes to fix this GM problem it is a guessing game.
