Question about 1997 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

My 1997 Geo has been making a sound like I need a new belt for a bit now, and now when I try to turk ignition on it' clicks and wont turn over. Is it possible that the problem is the belt that is not turning the alternator to recharge the battery and the clicking is coming from the alternator? if not what do you think it is? Thanks in advance

Yes its very much possible that the belt is either slipped or got very loose to hold the pressure or its cracked. But also the other possibility is problem with starter and its connections.It has to be checked.Also check the fuel pump and fuel for more troubleshooting.If low fuel or no fuel or fuel filter blocked. Get the fuel pressure checked.Belt can be easily checked on the alternator beside the battery. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

I have a 97 Geo Metro 1.3L 4Cyl. My car will not turn over to start. Before it broke down, which happened while driving, it did the squealing when turned on and has been shaking a bit when stopped.


sounds like a timing belt ,check it out first and if it is and if this engine is the same as the opel corsa which i think it may be then its valve free .

Where is the ignition switch on a 1997 ford


if it is making a rapid clicking sound while trying to start it, your battery is not fine. you can try to jump it. hook up the cables properly and allow the vehicle to sit for about 3-5 minutes. allow the "jumping" vehicle to just idle. reving the engine will not do anything.

I have a 97 geo prizm...when i turn the key it majes a clicking sound from underneath the hood and it only starts after i turn the key a few times.............HELP


Sounds like you need an ignition. Turn your key to the on position and cross the terminals on your starter with a screwdriver. Do this several times (Have somebody turn the key off and back to the n position). If it starts like this every time You need to replace the ignition. Or you can replace the whole column, sometimes this is easier then replacing just the ignition.

Some it starts


my 97 geo metro will not start when I turn the ignition key. The radio will work, buzzer etc. I can jump it with another car and it will start and run. If I turn ignition key to start, there is absolutely no crank, no click, no nothing. Could this be ignition module, bad battery, voltage regulator, starter?

1997 subaru outback make clicking noise on in reverse. Also, sometimes when the car is turned off, the car lurches a bit


does it click while reversing straight or while turning? Sounds like a stick shift. Lunging probably due to e-brake needing adjustment(if stick shift). If your car only clicks while turning in reverse you need new front axles and can probably drive that way for a while
