Question about 1995 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

I am having starting issues. It has slowly been getting worse and now I can't get anything. When I turn the key to the on position, my radio turns on, and everything else works, but my indicator lights do not turn on, nor do my turn signals, and my fuel pump does not prime. All of my fuses check out, so in my mind it seems to be down to a relay or my security system. Hopefully someone has a cooll idea on how to fix this.

2001 e320 cdi estate changed battery turned on and abs and bas warning up on computer and cars revving round to 5000rpm and sticks there no real response from throttle ?

You may just need to reset your throttle sensor. There is no hard connection between the gas pedal and the engine its electronic. To reset :

All auxiliary systems must be off (radio, lights.aircon, etc) no electrical drains or CAN signals can be triggered during the process.

Turn the Key to the "on" position (the position right before you start your engine)

Press and hold your gas pedal down for 5-10 seconds

Turn Key to "off" position (dont remove the key) and then release the gas pedal. than wait 2 minutes, for the system to reset. Again without touching anything or having anything on.

Thats should do it. When you replace the battery you usually have to do the radio code, yaw steering sensor, throttle and sometimes transmission. On my last battery just had to do the radio but was expecting to do all.

My 2003 chevrolet Trailblazer will not start.

What we need to know is if you can here the starter cranking the engine over? If the answer is no than check for power on the smaller wire at the starter. There should be power anytime the key is in the crank position. If there is power replace the starter. If the answer is yes than you will need to check for fuel pressure and spark to determine which is not letting the engine start. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

2000 honda cvic will not start but if you push on the it will try to start but will not stay running

Do you notice anything unusual with the dash lights when you turn the key on. All the warning lights should illuminate. If they do not but then come on as you start to rotate the key into the start position than you probably have a bad ignition switch.

If you turn the key to the start position and hold it there (only do this for a few seconds) will the car stay running until you let go of the key? Another clue that the ignition switch may be bad.

if you turn the key to the start position and the vehicle starts slowly let the key rotate back to the run position until the starter disengages. If the vehicle continues to run let go of the key. If the vehicle stalls than the ignition switch is definitely bad.

My blazer will not start, the lights come on cd player works but when you go to turn the key over it does not make the clicking sound so i know its not the battery. But why won't it turn over and start?

This issue happens a lot with these vehicles.

What you may want to do is this; Put your key in the 'Run' Position, not 'Start', and press on the Brake, then move the shifter all the way towards the back, so the red marker is on the '2'. Then, remove your foot from the break, and then move the shifter all the way back to the Park position. Next switch your key back to the 'Off' position.

Now, try to start your car.

If it starts, the issue was that you did not have the shifter all the way in the Park position. If it does not want to start, check your fuse box and see if you have a blown fuse. (Make sure if you replace a fuse that you replace it with the same type and rating).

If the fuses look OK, then you may have an issue with the starter solenoid. Turn the key back go the Off Position, slowly turn the key to the On Position, slowly. Listen carefully. You should hear at least a 'click'. This is the solenoid engaging but not turning. If you hear that click, then turn the key to the Start Position. If it doesn't turn over, the issue may be with the Starter.

Fortunately, the Starter has the Starter Solenoid attached to it and it normally comes as one unit. There are two bolts that hold the Starter in place. Make sure, if you are going to change out the Starter, that your remove the Positive Battery Cable from the Battery. The Positive Battery Cable goes directly to the Starter. If you don't remove that cable from the Positive Battery Post/Terminal, you may cause an arc under the engine. Trust me, you don't want to do that.

Let me know if that helps..

A few weeks ago i started my 84 S10. It normally starts fine. After i turned it off i tried to turn it back on and it wont do anything. everything works like the radio and everything. When i turn the key...

This sounds like you may have a starter issue. Have someone in the vehicle to try cranking and hold it in this position. You go underneath and attempt to tap the starter with a small hammer to see if it frees it up. If it does, replace your starter. Let me know if you need anything further.

2004 monte carlo problem with key

This is a mechanical issue. Try moving the gear shift around. There's an interlock that prevents you from turning the key all the way off if the vehicle is in gear. This is so that if you are driving and the key gets turned accidentally, that the steering wheel does not lock! It the linkage is messed up, or in the case of a console shift, the cable is damaged or out of adjustment, you cannot turn the key to off. Sometimes you can push the shifter harder into park and it will allow the key to be turned the rest of the way to off, whick will also verify this problem.
