Hello! With the vehicle NOT jacked up...Take a voltage reading from + terminal on the battery to the B+ cable...Turn key to start (hold only long enough to take reading)...If you read more than 2.5 volts There is a high resistance in the starter cable or the ground cable...

Perform same test with meter on + terminal of battery to the starter lead...If you read more than 2.5 volts there is a high resistance in the starter...

Jacking up the vehicle is providing enough torque to make a solid non-resistive connection...Loose starter bolts, poor ground, or poor battery connections are all suspect...

Send a comment with readings..........Guru...........Saailer

Where is the emergency shut off in a 1995 geo prizm?


All cars, EFI. (some have 3 fuse to operate ECU/spark/ fuel) check em yet?
check power to pump 12v cranking?
no, ? 12v, or 6v? (6v or near is corroded wires /conns)
check power (12v) from fuel pump relay cranking, got 12v there.
if yes , the the path is broken to the rear ) (inertial switch?, not in 95)
if not,12v now, the FP relay is bad or ECU is not turning it on.
if 12v is across the FP relay coil the ECU is working.
if 12v is across this relay, and output is dead, that is a bad relay
or the FI use feeding it is blown.
btw #1 all cars cut fuel (INJ) when spark is detected bad. (ecu)
btw#2 some (software) cut the fuel pump for same reasons.
btw#3, most cars, only activate the FP relay for 3 seconds key on, each time. and some cars only cranking, and running.
all these facts, need to be known to make progress, in EFI.
and more.

96 chevy cavalier had oil pressure issue. Later found it was due to bad crankshaft. Drive it to neighbors house and we pulled the engine and replaces the crank now once installed car is not getting any...


I ASSUME its a 2.2l VIN "4"? Better be SURE you put in the correct crank. Different years have different tone wheels for the Crank Sensor. If it ran before, it should run now. I think 2 wire connector is for power to coils Power to Pink wire comes from IGN fuse A. Pink is 12V, Black is ground, 6 wire plug is for ICM.(bolted to base of coil pack) cant bench test anything. Should be a code 42 if cranked for 5 seconds and no start if its a CKP issue.

ISSUE: After a 1-4 hour engine soak time, long crank times and/or long crank to start followed by a stall may occur on some vehicles. No further stalling or rough idle will occur after the engine is running. The long crank and/or stall may be due to the Idle Air Control (IAC) Valve sticking.
ACTION: Replace the IAC Valve with a revised IAC Valve if no Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Perform normal diagnostics and correct any DTCs as required by referring to the appropriate year Powertrain Control/Emissions Diagnosis (PC/ED) Service Manual.

No starter response when key is turned over. new starter and battery. all fuses and relays good. only thing left is ignition switch?


The starter is malfunction at this time. it could also be a ignition issue as well. here is a quick starter test procedure that will help you troubleshoot a bit.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.


Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.


Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.


Step 4
Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.


Step 5
Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.

1996 taurus will not start


Check your coil wire if not change your module inside the distributer.

Jul 20, 2009 | 1996 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Not cranking


There is a relay in the power distribution box near the battery. Check that. Also, check the block connections on battery leads for clean secure connection. Small wire on starter should have 12v there when cranking (or key turned to start. If power is there and no crank, starter is bad. Last resort, check ignition switch for power in/out.(rare but they do go bad)

96 ford taurus 6 cyc..no spark from coilpac to plug wires..


One wire should be power with the key on and the other 3 should be pulsing ground from the computer. Check the crank sensor. Next to the crank pulley.
