Have the car checked for security codes. The system is designed to inhibit the fuel pump from turning on. Once the code is read then proper diagnosis can be done.

    Is there a way I can check the security codes

    If you know someone with a Tech2 scanner or a high end scan tool that is willing to help you then you can get the code/s and diagnose the problem. If not you will have to go to a dealer.

My 1985 vette starts up cold good and no smoke but after warm up it don't want to crank when it does it has black gray smoke for a min what's wrong

not starting when it gets warm could be a starter problem, the amp draw is probably to high for the battery to supply enough power to start. starter draw should be around 150-200 amps. the black gray smoke is too much fuel that isn`t being burnt. if the starter draw is too high then there isn`t enough voltage for the ignition system to fire the plugs properly causing the smoke.

Starter wont engage after replacing dead battery

Check power to starter motor solenoid, solenoid operation and starter motor voltage during cranking. If the starter motor is receiving power from the solenoid, but isn't cranking, then replace the starter motor.

Also check the condition of battery terminals, wiring and connections. Also check the earth wire from the body to the engine.

2005 sedona won't start all of a sudden. Doesn't make a sound except for a tiny whirring sound like the feul injectors. Replaced starter...still won't start. checked all fuses...they are good....

you could just have dead cell in the battery which isn't getting enough amps to the starter,, have the battery LOAD checked,, that will tell you if the battery is actually good, just because it registers 12 volts isn't necessarily an indication that the required amps are present.

The starter doesn't start right away, the battery is good but no clicking sound is made, then after 10 - 15 minutes, it will start. what is wrong with the starter?

it may not be the starter motor it could be that the power isn't getting to the solenoid from the ignition switch, check all the wires & connections on the ignition switch to see if any are loose.........hope this helps.......cheers.

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....

Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.

Just replaced starter in 1990 chevy k 2500 but it just whines.

Hi, the starter-drive (Bendix) isn't spinning all the way into the flywheel (standard transmission) or (flex-plate) automatic transmission.

First, charge the battery using an automatic self leveling battery charger @ 2 amps till the green light comes on. Battery voltage should be taken with a volt meter while someone tries to start the car. If the volt meter drops back to zero the battery is shot.

If you still hear the zing sound buy a re-manufactured starter unless someone is clever enough to easily pull the end of the starter apart, remove the snap ring and starter drive.

Keep in mind, box store electrical parts are junk! NAPA, Carquest and AC-Delco dealers sell starters with lifetime warranties

For the past 2 weeks, when I try to start my 2003 Nissan Xterra, it seems sluggish, but the engine will turn over. On 2 separate occasions, when attempting to start the engine, it wouldn't turn over ...

Checked Cables how?

Looking & Touching isn't doing anything

You have to do a voltage drop test or remove
& clean the ends. I would do both

Remove the starter & have it tested at parts store,
assuming you don't know how to do a voltage or
current test while cranking.
