The computer on my jimmy isnt giving out any power please advise


How did you determine that it's the computer (ECM?). Do you have lights, horn, radio, etc? Do the dashboard warning lights when ou turn the ignition key to "On" (not to "Start")? Need more info, please.

97 dodge neon turn key have lights but no crank or no noises


Is the car still in gear? If it is, then it will not start till you put the car in park. I've done this before and the same thing happened, had radio, lights etc...till I put car in gear and it started. Check the gear selector, if it's not in park, then put it in park and try to start. Hope that helps.

1997 GMC Jimmy 4.3. It runs great. I will drive it for 30-45 min and then it will die on me. All dash lights will come on just like if you turn the key on and not start the engine. It will restart and then...


When the engine dies do the accessories such as radio, lights, heater all die along with the engine; or do they keep running as they were prior to the stall?
If they all quit together (as if the key was shut off) I would check the electrical part of the ignition switch or the battery cables and connections (check both ends of cables and little ground wire near battery that connects to car body). The ignition switches are a well known culprit in the s10's.

If the radio and lights keep running after the stall, I would look at the crank position sensor, ignition coils etc.

Good Luck!

2005 monatna makes clicking noise check engine light comes on and lights dim everything inside works,radio,seats,doors,etc but car wont crank


It is probably your starter. If it doesn't make a noise when you turn it, starter. Check fuses as well.

The jimmy cant not starte


I need more info. Does it not turn over? Does it turn over but not start? Does it try to start? It could either be electrical or a fuel problem. You have to know which. When you turn the ignition on, (when the dash lights and gauges come on), listen for the fuel pump to cycle (run), if not check the fuses and or relays. Your owner's manuel in the glove compartment should tell you which fuse it is. If the pump cycles check the pcm or ignition fuse. Then you have to go from there. If no spark to the plugs it could be a coil, crank trigger, etc.

'97 GMC Jimmy: engine turns over but car won't start, electrical?


Sounds like a bad ignition switch but could also be a bad connection to the ICP or just a plain old bad ICP (Instrument control panel). The ICP needs to be able to communicate with the ECM, Brake Control Module and the SDM (sensing and diagnostic module). If these can not "talk" to each other the vehicle will go into a lock out theft mode...assuming it has a factory VAT system. But I would bet on the ignition switch first...seen it many times.

Car will start lights, radio, etc, but engine


Try this:

Turn ON headlights and try to crank...

1. Headlights turn off completely means that the battery terminals need cleaning. Remove cables and clean clamps and posts.
2. Headlights have a noticable dimming means that the starter needs to be replaced.
3. No change in brightness. The headlights stay on, meand the starter solenoid needs replacing.

CRANKS BUT DOES NOT START


I had this problem with my 97 Jimmy. It is your ignition switch. The switch that touches the tumbler gets wore down. You'll have to tear the steering column apart to get to it and you will need a really small torx driver (not sure what size). Good Luck.
