Question about 1991 Pontiac Sunbird

1 Answer

91 pontiac sunbird will not crank.

I changed the neutral safty switch and it worked for about a week, about 8 start-ups. The battery is good and the starter works if you jump accross it. It's my neighbors car and I'm trying to help them out. I don't have a wiring diagram to know if there is a relay that I need to check. I'm stumped. Thanks for any answers.

1998 chev 1500, 5.0, automatic trany. Why do I have to activate the starter relay by hand to get engine to start?

Have you used a different relay ? Look on the bottom of the relay ,see pin 86 ? Test for B+ voltage where it plugs into the relay / fuse box while someone turns the key to start ! Is there B+ voltage . Before replacing the ignition switch and the neutral safty switch did you test for battery voltage coming from the ignition switch ? Pin 85 goes to ground , you can check this with a ohm meter . Do you know how to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? In the start position voltage from the ignition switch goes through 10 amp crank fuse . Fuse #8 located in the I/P fuse box .

Have a 2005 grand-am will not turn over everything works check starter, battery and fuses. could be a neutral switch bad

Not sure but the one way you can check the neutral safty switch is to put the car in netral and try to crank it and if it cranks in neutral its the NSS if not its something else.

94 sunbird will not start

Remove the smaller gauge wire from the solenoid, and put your test light on it while the ignition switch is being pushed into the "start" position. If the light turns on, the solenoid has gone bad.
