Try testing both the camshaft and crankshaft position sensors.Usually it turns out to be the camshaft sensor.No signal equals no spark and no start.

    will it stillget gas and flood.

  • George Messler Jun 21, 2014

    On some models the engine computer will stop the flow of gas and it will not flood.In the case it does not the injectors will still push gas and the car will flood.The downside to flooding the car is that the gas has to go somewhere and it winds up in the engine oil and thins it out.The oil should be changed after it has flooded to prevent damage from the oil being thinned out.

1997 Oldsmobile Achieva won't spark


id start by checking wires from crank sensor to pcm, using ohm meter, for resistance, or for open. at crank sensor connector, with it unplugged, probe each spade, one at time, with one lead and touch the other lead to good ground location. if you get a reading, you have a short to ground. if this is the case, i find it easier to run new wires from pcm to the sensor, vs tracking problem to its source. if you find no problem w the crank circuit, id first check wiring to coil housing, if it checks ok, try another coil tower, as i have got bad new parts in this same situation, on a quad 4. hope this helps. james white, white automotive, hopkins mo.

Starts but dies imedatly


As with any no start problem, you will need to figure out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel issue to proceed.
Have you checked the computer for trouble codes yet ?

Have an Oldsmobile 1997 Achieva security light stays on and won't everyhing but still won't start , would like to know would the Pro VATS Full Bypass work on it.


If the security light is on, then you have a failed antitheft system. This light is only for this. If you bypass the system, your car will work perfectly again.

Won't start security light comes on and flashes for about 20-30 mins till solid then will restart. recently started having no lights come on for up to 1 hr or more and have left overnight.


Try a different key
Usually the security light and no start mean the system can't read the little black chip imbedded in the base of the key

Could be any of the following:

You did not get all the wires back on
A wire broke while you were changing out the switch

Loose connecting in the circuitry (hardest one to solve)

1993 olds achieva-gears won't shift-what sensors on transmission


Had this problem when I rebuilt my engine. Turns out, that I had plugged back in a sensor that was previously unplugged. There is a known manufacturer's defect on some Achievas where a sensor on the transmission was mounted upside-down. Symptoms caused by this are primarily the car staying in gear (and thus stalling) when stopped, and failing to downshift while slowing down. Just unplug this pesky sensor, located roughly underneath and to the battery side of the throttle body. Be careful, though, because I don't know if running long term in this configuration will lead to transmission damage (although my transmission doesn't show any signs of troubles now that the thing is disconnected.)
