The wires might be reversed at the starter solenoid. Hopefully the wiring isn't hot or damaged.

    The starter has not been touched,thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking it might be the ignition switch. I have allready changed the starter relay and that did not help

    That sounds both strange yet true. Makes me wish you could just hotwire like in the old days. On older Chevys the purple wire was for the engine start and the red was ignition. Electronics has changed all that. Regards, Don

I replaced the fuel pump on 2005 Colorado. it shows an anti theft icon and will not start. what can I do?

1. Attempt to start the truck by turning the key to the Start/Run position. The passlock icon may be illuminated or flashing. Try to crank the vehicle.

2. Release key to the ON/RUN position (not the ACC position or OFF)

3. Allow the vehicle to sit with key in the ON/RUN position until the passlock security icon turns off. This could take as long as 12 minutes

4. When the light goes off, turn key to OFF position and keep the key in the OFF position for no less than 30 seconds.

5. Go to #1 and repeat for four cycles or until vehicle starts.

1995 honda odyssey starts and then dies

Isince it cranks, means you have power, elctric system is ok! I guess.. this could be a result of gas delivery problem... either a pump or gas circuit controller.... OR a small propable reason if you have an immobilizer (electronic chip on key!)... but there should be the securit key highlithed on dashboard...

1993 p30 m0torhome no fuel pressure no prime with ignition in run position

The fuel pump only runs for exactly 1 second when the key is turned to the run position, then the computer shuts it off unless the engine is being cranked over with the starter or it is running of course. If you wish to prime the system repeatedly turn the key to run and then off again until engine starts while holding the accelerator pedal to the floor to help purge air from the injectors.

There must be electrical running to the vehicle, if it will crank?
Try jumpstarting the vehicle, if there is no power .
You may need to get your alternator looked at.
Easiest first though, turn your key to on position then listen to your gas tank.
for about 10-15 seconds you should be able to hear your Fuel Pump engaging.
If not, then you aren't getting fuel to the engine, and you will need to have it serviced. Whether there's no power running to it, or there pump itself is broken, I can't tell you!

I hope this helps!

It acts like it is going to start, but it won't turn over. New fuel filter, no change... any ideas? 1999 Ford Taurus.

If you can hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key to the run position, then you turn key to start car...and the car will start and run for one or two seconds...then you may have a bad crank position sensor. Go to, become a member and look up crank position sensor for your car. There will be a tutorial on testing and replacement.

Engine experiences extended cranking to start it at times

Listen at the fuel tank when the key is turned on. The pump should run for a short time and shut off. If it continues to run, the pump is worn out and should be replaced. The fuel filter should be replaced if it hasn't been done lately.
