Question about 1997 Oldsmobile Cutlass

2 Answers

My car won't start. It sounds like it wants to turn over, but doesn't. I had a mobile mechanic come out and troubleshoot the problem. He hooked some type of reader to my car. Two codes came up. "P1631 Theft Deterrent Start Enable Signal Not Correct" "P1626 Theft Deterrent Fuel Enable Signal Not Received" How can I remove these codes? Any information you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

You might try to reset the computer. Here is the way you do it.

Turn the key to the ON position.
Then press the gas pedal all the way to the floor and let all the way off 3 times.
Then turn the key off. The next time you turn the key on it will have reset the computer. Not too sure if it will reset those codes. But it is free and worth a try!

Hope this helps you!!! If so please check YES! Thanks!

My plymouth breeze won't start, won't make a sound, but my lights and horn still works , help me.


any real answer yet? did the problem ever get resolved? i have the same problem with my sister's car. too cold to diagnose tonight, but will post the solution probably tomorrow. since the lights and heater works, but ignition and radio arent getting power, my first guess is there's probably a fried fusible link which controls the 2nd accessory power to the ignition switch. will post a solution soon.

Car wont start


Check the fuel. Don't rely on your gauge, and if in doubt add some fuel just to make sure there is enough to start the car. Try to start the car and if it still doesn't start you know that fuel isn't the problem.

Make sure your car is in Park and the emergency brake is set.

Look closely at your dash board when you attempt to start the car. If your lighted panels don't come on or are very dim then it is likely that you are dealing with a dead battery. Either use a battery tester or simply hook the battery up to a charger or use jumper cables to hook up to another car battery in order to charge the battery enough to start the car. After you charge the battery if your car still won't start you may be dealing with a bad starter.
Call a mechanic to find out if there are any other possibilities before you purchase and replace the starter.

Hooked up my amp it has power but power light won't come on won't power up front speakers work and have sound but it doesn't move to back


Make sure the remote wire is hooked up. You can run a small wire from the power terminal to the remote terminal. If it powers up, then you have a remote wire problem. You can run a remote wire from the blue power antennae wire of the deck.

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

KeyFob stuck in ignition and won't turn back to 0. Car also doesn't start. Car is in Park. Battery is charged.


Sounds like the rod or switch under the dash has slipped or been damaged. There is a rod that goes from the steering column to this switch and the switch is somewhat adjustable. You'll have to look up from the floor while turning the key back and forth to see the rod and switch and determine which is the problem or have a qualified mechanic fix it.

2001 aurora won't start at all. Hook batery up horn horn sounds and doesn't stop head lights stay on but nothing happens when the key is inthe ingition. No clicking or anything at all. alarm on...


The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.
