I have a 1990 Chevy Suburban. I hooked up the battery cables wrong and now it turns over but wont start.


Chances are, you either blew the IGNITION fuse, or the main FUSIBLE LINK under the hood (marked "fusible link").
Chances are you blew more than one fuse... let's hope you didn't fry the ECU!

I'm no expert but when you turn key to run position, this turns the fuel pump on if the pump is faulty i would think it would blow the fuse also. Or its your theory a short in the ignition system wiring.

Have you checked the fuses? There should be a fuse box under the hood open the box the diagram inside will show what fuse is for the ignition. Pull the fuse and hold up to the light the little wire inside should have no break between the two posts of the fuse. Don't forget to check the fuse panel inside the car also there should be a secondary ignition fuse in that panel also.

2002 Jaguar XJ8 VDP....installed new battery (more amps than the previous), now the car just turns over and won't start


It is posible that the extra boost has blown the ignition fuse. Look under the dash on the left or right hand drivers side and find the fuse box. On the outer cover should be a diagram of the fuses installed. Look for ignition. If you don't have a daigrm then start pulling fuses one at a time and checking the wire in the fuse to see if it has seperated, (Melted), and replace it. There may be more then one fuse that burnt so check them all and replace them back in the same spot. This is why i say one at a time. Some vehicles have an ignition fuse under the hood as well. If you can't find the fuse in the car then look out under the hood. Some of these fuses under the hood will be larger but should have a window to look in and check for damage. Let me say this first before you go fuse hunting. When trying to start does it turn over good and fast. If it is a sluggish turn over then recheck the battery termanals to be sure they are tight and cleaned of all corrosion. You should not be able to twist the cable end with your hand. Let me know how it turns out. I hope I have been of some help, Good Luck, The Raz

Car will not start


My night time headlights were not working, so I was playing around with the fuses/relays under the hood. I pulled out the relay that said "MAIN" and the car would turn over but would not start. There are also ignition fuses under the dash as well as fuses/relays under the hood. If you suspect a relay, the cost start at $50 new.

Car starts, then dies within 2or3 seconds.


Try this start eng and before it dies disconnect the starter solenoid, and hold the ignition in the crank position like you are starting it, if the engine remains running replace the ignition switch, they come apart and cause this issue
