Question about 1992 Buick Park Avenue

1 Answer

92 park ave won't crank. The starter was pulled and tested good. It will crank when jumpered to the selenoid and seems to fire but dies when the starter is disengaged. Where should I look next. Will the ignition key reader cause this condition?

There may be a fuse link blow out on one of the wires to the starter solenoid or the ignition switch is bad.

Have a 1995 GMC Sonoma and was driving one day and overheated the truck died and will not start now what could it be! It will start by pulling the truck and popping clutch


Why did it overheat, did you fix the overheating? Are you saying it cranks good but won't start? If it cranks good but won't start, check fuel--spark--compression. Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. If the battery is down, we can't do any testing. At the starter motor motor, two voltage circuits, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other voltage circuit goes hot with key in the crank position is wired through clutch switch. The starter motor grounds through engine block. Any testing at starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. You can have the starter motor tested.

Why is there no power to starter or lights?


What smoked ,the Fuse? SHORT ? what fuse ? Main fuse - explain ? Still no fire ? Doesn't crank , no spark ,what ? Does the starter spin the engine when you turn the key to the start position ? a crank no start condition . or a no crank - no start ! Check fuse F1 80 amp in the under hood fuse box.

Why is my jeep not starting, no turn over but clicking


automatic transmission? mine a stick. and different.
ok.
does it crank in neutral as the operators guide states?
not just park, neutral has fresher contacts, try them.
clean battery lugs first.

here is the list of tests, (not guessing !)
  1. fuses all good,
  2. battery charged? does jumper cables work now?
  3. if jumper cables cranks engine then battery is bad or only discharged (for other reasons, ask)
  4. if jumper fail, the starter or key line is dead.
  5. we hot wire the starter next. if it cranks now starter is good.
  6. if the hot wire fails, starter is bad(battery charged )
  7. i the starter hot wires ok that key line is dead.
  8. i then check the P/N park neutral switch next (ask)
  9. or further up the line to the ign. switch.
  10. (or use a scan tool) the newer cars can report more errors. not looking , here, you can miss the boat.

92 park ave AC won't go to auto stays on economy


If the freon level is ok, you have an electrical problem somewhere. The system will not activate because the control module "thinks" the freon level is low or because of another problem. It could be the module too.
You'll need a shop manual to get the test procedures for climate control ac to check the components and circuits.

I have a 97 dodge ram 1500 that will not start .the battery is good but when i go to start the truck i get two cranks then it seems like the battery died. the battery is good but after i try to crank

Click on the link.
The first thing I would do, is use a digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, take reading, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. If your reading is much less, you need to charge the battery. With meter leads touching battery posts, have a helper turn the key to crank, if complete circuit, the reading shouldn't drop below 9.6 volts, if it drops down close to zero, that's not going to work. Another thing that might happen, is not much drop at all, that usually means an open starter circuit, somewhere.What about battery connections?
See the starter relay, if you unplug the relay and use a jumper wire between terminal 30 and 87, the starter motor should crank, if voltage--ground and starter motor are ok. If you try that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility.
You can remove the starter, lay it on the ground, hook up jumper cables properly from battery to starter motor, it should kick out the drive gear and spin. Some of the national brand auto stores will test your starter motor for free, I believe, if you take it to them.
Check your charging system. I could go on and on, but, my post is already too long. Just trying to help.

Cannot fire the starter. Think it is an electrical issue. Is there a fuse that I need to check?


Hi!

My name is Tom and I trust I can be of service to you.

I will now asume by "firing the starter" you mean the car will not turn over. I will also assume that you have checked the battery and it is able to make contact with the starter selenoid. The starter selenod is the salami shaped unit which is on top of the starter.

You will find that there are three contacts on the back of the selenoid. One is the ground to the engine block and the other are leads for the battery.

I will also assume that you do not want to take the starter off.(taking it off is the simplist way to check if the starter is bad or the starter seloid).

Back to checking the starter. Under the car looking up to the sunlight from the starter point of view, you will see a cable that runs from the starter selenoid to the battery. Also make sure that the ground wire(the wire which attaches to the engine block) is clean.

You now know that you have battery power to engauge the selenoid and the starter if both are working properly.

Attempt to start the car. If it does, you have solved the problem. If not,using a pair of jumper cables, attach one to ground and the red one to "short" the curcuit.

This is done by placing the red jumper cable clamp accross both non-grounded leads off the startrer selenoid. If you hear a click, then the starter seleniod is working. If you hear a click and the car turns over your starter and seleniod are both good.
If you do not get a ckick or a start then the starter and attached selenoid are both bad and need replacing.

I trust this will be of help to you please call or write and I will be happy to give you further assistance.

My pick-up truck wont start it had a bad starter so i replaced the starter, then the battery died....but in the same day...i decided to just use other truck and give it a jump start, but my truck was only...


Based on your description, the starter selenoid is not getting enough juice (current) to pull up solidly. So, causes are:
1. Low battery voltage
2. bad connection of battery+ at the battery or at the selenoid terminal.
3. bad ground connection between the starter selenoid and the truck chassis.

If you want to bypass the selenoid, you can place a jumper cable on the "FAR" side of the selenoid (the side that feeds the starter). Then momentarily touch the other end of the jumper to the battery + terminal.

If the starter cranks, then you have confirmed the selenoid as problematic. Remove it and either replace it or disassemble and clean it.
