Question about Buick Reatta

1 Answer

I have asked this question on yesterday and am still waiting for an answer. I have a1989 Buick Reatta and I had the car sitting there running and I shorted a little light green wire out and the engine stopped and now it won't start. The engine turns over but will not start. The wire was an extra wire just under the mastercylinder.

Have you checked the fuses and relays? if this wire ran into the relay box, it might have shorted out a relay running a system in the car for the engine, fuel pump, etc. trace the wire back to where it goes. that should give you a start for tracking down this problem. let me know, will help all I can for not being able to see the whole problem
