Check the crank sensor wiring, i had the same problem with my -92 900 and it turned out to be hungry mice eating the wires for the crank sensor....

If the fuel pump is'nt running then it's a bad relay or blown fuse. If the pump is running then it could be a few things, a bad timing belt, bad cam sensor, bad crankshaft sensor, could be the timing is off which you can adjust with the distributor, or it could be a bad o2 sensor or MAP sensor.

Why car wont start on 2000 chevy impala i got new plugs new wires new module but still wont start

Your culprit is most likely an ignition coil, but could be so many different things, such as bad ground connections, bad ECU or simply the ECU fuse. Check all fuses to see if any are burned out. Check all wiring for corrosion. If your engine bay is nice and greasy that's probably NOT the problem. If it is rusty then likely a previous owner or dealer power-washed the engine compartment to make it look new. That's bad news because water pressure can get into almost any electrical device in the compartment, especially the ignition components. Check inside distributor. If you're lucky you may simply need to replace the rotor, if you have one. If not, it's an ignition coil.

Tahoe not getting fire to plugs, when I try to crank it there is an odor of gas and no start! Crank sensor,evap purge valve solenoid, fuel pump and knock sensors have all been replaced.

Things to check:
  1. Timing chain or timing belt (depending on which engine you have);
  2. Coil pack or ignition coil (depending on which engine and year);
  3. Rotor and distributor cap (if your Tahoe is an earlier model);
  4. ECU (especially if you jump-started the car before the issue began);

1986 Saab 900S classic refuses to start out of nowhere

check and test the coils and the points / ignition module. Check that the rotor button is not cracked . Check that the carbon button in the distributor cap is still spring loaded . Check that the HT wire to the distributor is operational

Starting problems

faulty crank position sensor is likely. No pulse from sensor to ECU, no activation of fuel pump, no fuel no start. The insulation in the inductive coil of the sensor breaks , and the sensor fails with age.

1997 Saab 900 SE Turbo. Problem repeats. Car is off the road. Had started up just fine, several days in a row, now it turns over just fine but does not start. Can hear the fuel pump pressurize. HAd done...

start with the basics: an engine with no internal problems (like timing belt broke, or valve train not timed) needs fuel and spark to start.Since your getting fuel up to the fuel rail to feed the injectors, lets assume for the moment that the injectors are working to put gas into the cyllinder (You coud check that by pulling a plug or two out and see if they are wet or smell of gas.) Then check for spark (Hold the metal tip of plug wire 1/4 inch from a metal bolt or ground on the engine. Careful you don't get a shock-you can also buy a spark checker for a few bucks. just put the plug wire on it and ground it with the clip. Then you won't get a shock.) If you see that it is getting spark, then you may need an expert diagnosis for why it won't run. If you do not detect any spark (might want to try more than one plug wire) then you need to diagnose your ignition. If your car has a distributor, take off the cap and check inside for a cracked dist. cap or bad or worn rotor. You may also have a bad ignition coil or ignition module (expensive, but not as expensive as a bad engine control computer. Distributorless ignition? Again, may be a bad coil, coil pack, or ignition module. good luck, i'm about out of suggestions.

My 1998 jeep cheorkee engine turns but won't crank, could it be the computer or what?

it's highly unlikely, there are only two things that can make this happen, not getting fuel (fuel pump failure, fuel pump regulator) or not getting ignition (bad coils, ignition module failure, bad distributor, distributor cap, rotor)

95 Honda Accord Won't Start

well seems i would normaly says its the coil but i have my fellings after reading all your info that you may have a dead short leadings to your coil, a dead ecu or a bad coil... hear is why if you replaced the relay and found 2 clicks then the system arched voltage back through the wire untill it fried your relay so i feel that your problem is after the relay, not before you will need a wireing diagram to test your wires, this is where i would start simply because its the cheapest thing to start with. once you have checked the wires if that is not it I can get you a test procidure to eliminating the ecu as the fualt I will have to have a little more info than just the modle and year... Modle, year, engine size, sohc, dohc ????
good luck let me know if you need more help

have your ignition coil checked, this problem happens when your ignition coil becomes hot and when you rest it cools down and it will work again. you don't repair ignition coil, instead you replace it with a new one.

Saab 95 1998 - wont start

The most common problem is the Direct ignition cassette, followed by the crankshaft position sensor. I am assuming that it cranks, but won't start.
