How do I fix my van that will not start?

Hi James , you say you swapped relays ? The problem with that is you need to check for power an control at the relay socket . If you look on the bottom of the relay you will see four numbers , 30,87 an 85 ,86 . 85 an 86 are the control side of the relay . one of those two will have voltage an the other side goes to the PCM-engine computer . When you turn you key to start the vehicle a lot of things have to be right for the engine computer to energize that relay. No anti-theft system problems is the main one . Pin 30 should have battery voltage , pin 87 goes down to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . you can take a jumper wire an jump 30 an 87 the starter should crank over the engine - not start an run , just crank the engine over . There are a few good videos on youtube on starter system trouble shooting , pictures are better then me telling you. Good luck hope this helps

Wont start with key

Do you have a bad starter? also check for loose or dirty battery cables on both ends of cables as the starter does take a lot of pull and a dirty or loose cable won't give it the power to start but will let the lights work.

2003 suzuki wont crank up

what car?, suzuki makes 100s. and what tranny it has.......??????
no crank is cause by only 3 things.
1: bad starting system.
2: bad charging system , making battery dead. or battery is bad.
3: the key line is dead , if A/T? the key line goes through the tranny
PRND switch (side of tranny),. must be in N or P to start.
3a; if manual tranny? the clutch switch fails.

can you start with a jump start?
that means the battery is dead, no charged or bad.
if not, then smack the starter with a hammer ,start now?
if not, hot wire starter, work now?
if not, make sure the Key line to the starter solenoid goes to way above 8v, when you crank, if not the cab wiring is bad.
that means, the key line from ignition switch to the starter is failing.
here's a no crankpage covering all that.

My 2002 firebird won't start when you turn the key on the gauges go backwards and the starter won't turn the engine over. If you jump across the starter the car starts and runs a couple seconds then dies....

All of the power goes through the starter. First check to see if you have a bad power wire .If the starter is shorted you loose the power. I think replacing the starter will correct your problem.

Ford Explorer, 1998, V6 4L SOHC. Will not start. Acts like battery is dead. Jump starts successfully. Battery takes and holds charge (13.3V) only when disconnected. When battery leads are reconnected...

Most partstores will test battery altenator and starter for free. Either your battery is dead or your connections are not metal to metal contact, or you starter relay may be shot. You can put key in on position and either test with a voltmeter or use a screwdriver and jump terminals on solenoid to see if starter turns.

1994 gp 3100 ,wont start, turn key getting all the dash lites but starter not engaging, security lite is flashing, the car was drove to my hse i know it runs any ideas, battery is new, key is a #7.with key...

You need to set the parking brake, Turn the key on let it sit like that for 10 mins. the sec light will either start flashing or will stay on or go off when done (This will reset)
REPEAT 3 times!
Then you should be able to start the car after the 3rd time!

1994 grand prix,motor wont start by key ,if i jump the starter it starts and runs for about 5 stays on for about 5 mins. then goes out still wont start

This is likely caused by a burned out alternator, charge the battery, verify it will hold a charge and replace the alternator.
