I turn the key to the on position and my test light lights up in the plug wires is this normal. Can you help me. Try starting and does not start just turns over


Your test light(s) on the spark plug wires indicate that you're getting spark, but may not be getting fuel. The fact that the engine turns over indicates that your battery is charged, and the ignition switch and starter motor/solenoid are good.
When you turn the key to the "ON" position, listen for the faint whirring sound of the fuel pump operating (inside the fuel tank) - or have a helper listen by pressing their head down to the back seat near the fuel tank/fuel pump.
If no whirring sound comes from the fuel pump motor, then the fuel pump has failed.
Other things to check: if the fuel pump is working, check fuel rail pressure (fuel pressure gauge), and operation of fuel injectors (noid lights). Also, vehicle might be out of gas, due to a fuel line/fuel tank leak.

95 sedan deville 4.9 liter. fuse that opens gas door, indicates gas level on digital dash, also operates automatic lights continually blows....why?


I would guess that the fuel level sender inside the fuel tank is shot, or about to go out or the sensor for the automatic lights.

Fuel gauge doesn t work


Most of the time it is the sending unit in the fuel tank.Remove the connection from the fuel tank,and using a test light,test the wires that you removed from the fuel tank. Clip the alligator clip on the test light to a good known ground,and use the probe on the test light to touch the terminals in the connector you unplugged.Make sure the ignition key is turned to the on position,right before start position.Have someone to watch the gauge.At this point the gauge should be showing past the full position.When touching the right terminal in the connector you removed from the tank,the fuel gauge should move down toward the empty mark.If this fuel gauge doe do this when you are testing it,then the gauge in the dash is good and the sending unit is bad.

Why my car start but seconds later turns off? i have a suburban 1999 1500, 5.7


Look for a light on the dash that says "security" or has a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If you see this light, then this link will explain your problem. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

Changed fuel pump but still not getting any gas


Open your gas tank lid, have someone stick ear to the opening, switch car to "on" position, where the light on dash light up, "they" should hear the pump cycle, if not it may not be getting any power. This is just a first step. Hope it helps.

How do you check if your fuel pump is bad without removing the gas tank


Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the second position. This position will light up the dash lights but will not crank the engine.
Listen for a faint or soft humming sound coming from the rear of the vehicle, specifically the gas tank. This will happen almost immediately after you turn the key to the second position, so you'll have to listen closely and be ready for it. The humming is the sound of the fuel pump priming, or pressurizing, the fuel system. If you do not hear this sound, you may have a faulty fuel pump.
  1. Check to make sure there is enough fuel in the gas tank. Although this may seem obvious, it happens to the best of us. If you're gas tank is near empty, the engine may not start. This happens more frequently in the winter time in cold climates; the low temperatures cause condensation to form on the inside of the gas tank. Since water doesn't burn, the fuel pump tries to draw in fuel and instead gets a mixture of water and gasoline and cannot get enough fuel to the engine for combustion.
    Check to see that the vehicle starts. Even if you don't hear the fuel pump priming, attempt to start the vehicle. If the engine won't turn over (start) and you haven't heard the fuel pump prime the system, it is a good indication that the fuel pump may have failed.

    Check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is blown, the fuel pump will not prime. Open the fuse box under the dash of your vehicle and locate the fuse for the fuel pump. Alternately, some vehicles locate the fuel pump fuse in a fuse box under the hood. Remove the fuse box cover (specific removal will vary according to the vehicle). Check the fuse to see if the metal strip inside the fuse has popped. Replace the fuse if the metal strip has popped; if it hasn't popped, it is most likely your fuel pump itself that has failed.

Will not start when hot. starter makes no different types of noise.


hello. perhaps I can assist you.

Perform this test:

Fuel pump test:

1. Get yourself a helper.

2. remove the gas cap.

3. have one person listen in the gas tank at the gas cap opening.

4. have the other person turn the ignition switch to the ON position ONLY so as the dash lights come on. Do NOT attempt to start the engine.

5. As soon as the ignition key is turned to the ON position, The person at the gas tank should hear the fuel pump run for TWO SECONDS and then it should STOP.

6. Does it ?.


If you do NOT hear it run, in most cases the fault is the fuel pump relay or the fuel pump..


As soon as you turn ON the ignition switch to start the engine a 2 second ONLY battery voltage signal is sent from the computer to the fuel pump relay and from the relay back to the fuel pump in the fuel tank. This runs the fuel pump for ONLY 2 seconds of which pressurizes the fuel system in preparation to start the engine.

Once the engine starts, The computer BYPASSES the fuel pump relay and sends constant contionous battery voltage from the computer to the oil pressure switch of which is now CLOSED because the oil pressure is UP because the engine is running. Therefore the battery voltage flows thru the oil pressure switch back to the fuel pump to run the fuel pump constantly until you turn OFF the engine.

Fuel and oil pressure gauge


hello this sounds like a bad ground to the gauge cluster first thing to try with the key in the on position tap at gauge area see is there any change if not open dash area were gauges are wiggle to see if they are grounded good into dash grab a test light take end put to the ground on one off the gauges touch other power wire with probe while key is in the on position same for both gauges if no difference reinstall you need to check grounds on both gauges by tracing wires it might be easier if you locate your oil sending unit take the wire off attach alligator clip to wire now touch positive side of batterey if it lights grounds okay trace back to units oilsender,sending unit at gas tank goodluck please rate

Missing and cutting out


A fault code reader would be a huge help in diagnosing general problems. It plugs in under left side dash and gives specific failure codes (this is what mechanics use).
You can buy an OBD-I code reader (for cars before 96) online for $79.95 or a OBD-II which reads all cars from 1996 on. It will also reset faults or engine trouble lights.

You may want to check your fuel pressure with a gauge.

or do a simple Fuel pump test:
  1. remove the gas cap.
  2. have one person listen in the gas tank at the gas cap opening.
  3. the other person turns the ignition switch to the ON position ONLY (so the dash lights come on.) Do NOT crank or start up the engine.
  4. As soon as the ignition key is turned to the ON position, The person at the gas tank should hear the fuel pump run for TWO SECONDS and then it should STOP.
If it does NOT run for the 2 seconds every time, the fault is either the fuel pump or fuel pump relay
