I have a 1990 Pontiac Firebird.My problem is the engine will not turn over. It's not the Battery, ECU, starter,or the wire that is hooked to the starter. What else could it be.


There are 2 wires hooked to the starter. One from the battery and one from the ignition switch. the small (ignition) wire has a fusible link in it. Check voltage on the ignition side of the link(12 volts), then on the starter side. Less than 12 volts. replace the link with the same color.

87 Toyota p/u 4x4 turns over won't start no spark at coil coil has 12 volts on both wires why is this should I have 12 volts on wires going to pickup in the distributor if so which wires should be hot???


12 volts at the low tension wire , hundreds at HT (high tension ) leads , they go to each plug, dont try testing them with a volt meter you will blow it up , and your hand as well,take one plug out , put the ht lead on it rest plug against the engine block , get someone to crank engine and watch plug to make sure you have a good spark, if not change the ign coil/s

Starter relay gone bad on my 90 toyota, have a new 12 volt, four point 30 amp univerisale relay with numbers reading 85,86,87,30..what color of wire goes to number on relay?


If you look at the relay it has a wiring diagram on the side of it, showing the power wires (recall 87 being one of them) and the control wires. Can't tell you color, perhaps a Toyota tech could but in my experience they vary.

I have check engine error codes 11, 12 on my 95 grand cherokee limited the engine wont start just keeps turning over


Code 11 means no distributor reference signal detected during cranking. Check the circuit between the Distributor and PCM (computer). Also, keep in mind the following operations/tests apply to these relays only: Automatic Shutdown (ASD) , Fuel Pump and Ballast Bypass. For operations/tests on all other relays refer to the appropriate test.

OPERATION:
The relay terminal numbers can be found on the bottom of the relay.
Terminal number 30 is connected to battery voltage and can be switched or B + (hot) at all times.
Terminal number 87A is connected (a circuit is formed) to terminal 30 in the de-energized (normally OFF) position.
Terminal number 87 is connected (a circuit is formed) to terminal 30 in the energized (ON) position. Terminal number 87 then supplies battery voltage to the component being operated.
Terminal number 86 is connected to a switched power source.
Terminal number 85 is grounded by the Engine Controller.

TESTING:
Remove relay before testing.
Using an ohmmeter, perform a resistance test between terminals 85 and 86. Resistance value (ohms) should be 75 ±5 ohms for resistor equipped relays.
Connect the ohmmeter between terminals number 87A and 30. Continuity should be present at this time.
Connect the ohmmeter between terminals number 87 and 30. Continuity should not be present at this time.
Use a set of jumper wires (16 gauge or smaller). Connect one jumper wire between terminal number 85 (on the relay) to the ground side (-) of a 12 Volt power source.
Attach the other jumper wire to the positive side (+) of a 12V power source. Do not connect the jumper wire to relay at this time.

CAUTION: Do not allow the ohmmeter to contact terminals 85 or 86 during these tests. Damage to ohmmeter may result.

Attach the other jumper wire (12V +) to terminal number 86. This will activate the relay. Continuity should now be present between terminals number 87 and 30. Continuity should not be present between terminals number 87A and 30.
Disconnect jumper wires from relay and 12 Volt power source.

If continuity or resistance tests did not pass replace relay. The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and connector are located in the engine compartment, mounted to the inner fender, next to the air cleaner housing (click image fo zoom).
DTC 11 - No reference signal during engine cranking. No camshaft reference signal was detected during engine cranking.
DTC 12 - Battery disconnect. Battery input to PCM disconnected during last 50 key starts.
DTC 42 - ASD relay control circuit. An open or shorted condition detected in the auto shut down relay circuit.

I have a 1984 ford truck 351 engine, the alternator has 3 wires in the back,I put my meter on each one, the one that says bat puts out 14.50 volts when the engine is running, the other 2 wires put out 7...


this may be an alternator that can be used for a 6 or 12 volt vehicle I'm not sure but you need to charge 14 .5 volts on a 12 volt system.....hope this helps.....cheers

Code 43 . my alt stayes at about 11 12 volts when


CODE 43 IS ELECTRONIC SPARK CONTROL -.KNOCK SENSOR.LOOKS LIKE ALTERNATOR NOT PUTTING OUT ENOUGH VOLTS TO CHARGE BATTERY.YOU NEED 13.5 TO 14.5 VOLTS.CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE AND ELECTRICAL WIRES.MAKE SURE BELTS NOT SLIPPING.IF ALL IS GOOD.REMOVE ALTERNATOR.LET AUTO ZONE CHECK IT.TO MAKE SURE.TURN OFF RADIO BEFORE MOVING BATTERY CABLES.SO YOU WONT LOSE RADIO CODE.YOUR CAR IS NOT GOING TO RUN RIGHT IF THE ECM DONT RECEIVE 12 VOLTS OR 13 VOLTS.
