Wont start no ignition lights


Hi, You should check the battery and alternator one or both may be bad. Have your mechanic check it out for you. Good luck.

1998 GMC Safari van won't start.


The ground should connect to the motor and the motor should connect to the body or chassis. Pour some water on the connection to the engine and the battery terminals. If it is a bad connection things should improve. If you jump start, the donor vehicle needs to be running at a fast idle.

Starting problems


I woul dcheck all the connections .. clean them good using a small wire brush .. but it sounds like if your battery is checking out good and it starts with a jump or push .. you have a loose or dirty connection.

Has this helped? If so I would appreciate a FixYa .. Thanks .. Crayz
