Question about 1994 Geo Metro

2 Answers

Car is dead...kinda

So have a 1994 Geo prizm, left the key in the on possition by accident at my house for a day or two. When I tried to start the car the battery was dead (no real shocker there). Jumped the car with the current vehicle I'm driving now and it worked fine. two more days pass and the same problem has occured. I replaced the battery with a new one but now my car won't start (no turn over or anything) when I turn the key I might as well be hearing impared because nothing happens. Also my radio doesn't work along with my brake and tail lights, windshield wipers, and all of my dash lights except the one with the battery on it. headlights and dome light do work however. any idea's would be welcomed because I would live to get this fixed

Check the wires that connect to the battery. Make sure where it connects to the battery is clean of any corrosion. Also follow the wires (positive and negative) to their next connection and clean those areas also. My guess is that your positive wire is not getting a good connection at the starter, thus breaking the circuit and only allowing a little bit of power to get to your vehicle.

Where the positive meets the starter, remove the connection and use sand paper and a steel brush to clean the area on the starter it seats to. Also make sure the connector on the wire itself is clean.

For the negative wire, follow it to where it connects to your frame and clean it up there also.

Since you replaced the battery,you might want to check the positive terminal on the battery and make sure that none of the smaller wires(if any)that go to the positive terminal did not come off.make sure they are clean and making good contact and do the same with the ground wire also.the problem has to be with the battery or terminals because that is the only thing that was replaced.once you get the car running you might want to get your charging system and battery checked just to be on the safe side. hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny

My 1990 geo prizm won't start and there's no interior lights what can be the problem


hello ,

you must tell the helper all things that work or dont work
that is how electrics function, by branches .
1: head lights work high and low beams. ( dim or dead?)
2; heater fan work on high?
3: radio.
4: cluster glows those warning lamps as all do key on (y/n)
5;cranks
6: interior lamps dead, my guess you mean the dome lamps.?
try to be more clear as to which of the many lamps inside are dead.
7: if its a no crank, car, say so, and check for green battery lugs
we clean them , if not corroded ,then we next jump start the car
using jumper cables, per instructions on the box.

is car automatic trans?
if yes and wont crank try cranking in Neutral not park.
step on brake /and key on, and shift to N.
then crank.

1995 Geo prizm, no power to fuse 10 in fuse box under left side steering column ,no power to distributor or fuel injectors,were does power come from


dead engine,
do head lamps work?
on a dead car, dead engine, all power comes from the main car battery. and all power feeds are fused.
if fuses blow, no power to that feed.
if the battery is dead so will be the head lamps and hand lamps
do not take a key top work (a safety feature)
this car is toyota corolla. (with geo stickers)
how do you know power is missing from F10?
you used a voltmeter there? or test lamp? how>?
there were 2 engines, 4A and 7AFE engines.
ill guess and answer for 4AFE engine
Fuse 10 is not a number its the current rating of the fuse.
and is maked (you didnt show a photo of fuse, nor where it is)
is marked IGN
now ill answer with the schematic. (makes it 10x more easy)
now power feeds IGN fuse, from the key switch
if that switch works the power come to it from
AM2 fuse
If AM2 is dead then the battery is dead. or
the battery ground is bad.
or the battery lugs are rusty
or the battery is only discharged, so charge it.
or jumper cable start car like you see the AAA tow truck man do.

94 geo prizm turn key nothing jump it nothing but have lights and everything


Check all of the fuses first, then try getting under the car and tapping the starter with a hammer several times, then try to start it again. If it starts, you'll want to replace the starter/solenoid (built together). You can also take the starter to a parts store to have the starter tested.

1994 Geo Prizm LSI running one day won't crank next day


turns over and crank are the same thing,
so you are saying it does crank over but no start,right?
you need to determine if you have at least 50psi of fuel pressure in fuel rail at reed valve.
