I turn the key to the on position and my test light lights up in the plug wires is this normal. Can you help me. Try starting and does not start just turns over


Your test light(s) on the spark plug wires indicate that you're getting spark, but may not be getting fuel. The fact that the engine turns over indicates that your battery is charged, and the ignition switch and starter motor/solenoid are good.
When you turn the key to the "ON" position, listen for the faint whirring sound of the fuel pump operating (inside the fuel tank) - or have a helper listen by pressing their head down to the back seat near the fuel tank/fuel pump.
If no whirring sound comes from the fuel pump motor, then the fuel pump has failed.
Other things to check: if the fuel pump is working, check fuel rail pressure (fuel pressure gauge), and operation of fuel injectors (noid lights). Also, vehicle might be out of gas, due to a fuel line/fuel tank leak.

Were can I find the fuel pump kill switch


When you first turn the key to start the vehicle the PCM - engine computer energizes the fuel pump relay turning on the fuel pump for two seconds to prim the system . The fuel pump won't be turned on again till the PCM receives a crankshaft position sensor signal. If you hear it come on the inertia fuel cut off switch is OK . Now then what problem are you having Lisa ? A no start condition ? Is there spark getting to the spark plugs ? Do you have a red light on the dash flashing when trying to start the truck ? Anti-theft system problem .

2003 gmc savanna, wont start, new fuel pump and ignition cylinder, I turned key to on position, let sit for 15 min and still wont start just turns over


Find fuel test valve in fuel rail on top of engine. Take cap off valve. Turn key on. Push down valve with screw driver. fuel should squirt out. If not check fuse fuel pressure relay and bad wires. If fuel does come out, remove a spark plug from engine. Connect plug wire to plug. Ground plug against engine. Crank over engine and look for spark.

Electrical problem for the fuel no power


A lot of newer vehicles have a fuel pump cutout switch on the engine. If the engine shuts down for any abnormal reason, it loses oil pressure and one of the things that happens is the fuel pump is cutoff. This is a safety item in case of an accident which shuts off the engine. Check for the oil pressure cutout switch on the engine, which is usually different from the oil pressure gauge or light switch. Can't say exactly where it is, sometimes on the upper rear part of the engine behind intake manifold or on lower side of engine right into the block. The fuel pump run circuit is different from the fuel gauge circuit although they usually run in the same wiring harness if the fuel pump is in the tank. If the pump is not in the tank then the fuel level sender in the tank is probably defective and should be replaced.

cut off switch could still be bad. First my sure gas is getting to the engine....if so then this indicates that fuel system is working properly. Sounds like car may not be firering. Things that could cause this is coil bad, ingnition modual failed or maybe pickup coil."sensor maybe some where..timing out which would indicate timing belt or chain or gears are broke......Keep in mind these are just some things that could cause your problem and gives you ideal what to look for........hope this info helps and good luck....Please rate this post and if you need more help then fill free to contact me and we will try to get ya back on the road......

hi..
Many cars these days are equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probable see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds.
You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed. On some cars you can find the information how to reprogram the key in the owner's manual...

thank u
rate me!!!

94 Ford Probe GT Fuel Cutout problem


VERY Probable! You need to get that Probe to a Mechanic and have it Diagnosed. You can also Purchase a Diagnostic tool for the Computer at Any Good Auto Parts Store and Try this yourself! This is Most Definitally a Computer Error Code Problem.
