2000 gmc jimmy starts in AM fine won't start after sitting in sun all day


Can you jumper the fuel pump and make it start and continue to run ?
Have you checked to see if you are getting spark when it won't start ?
Could be a relay or coil, ignition module, or other component.

I just failed smog and the technician said that it was either the EGR valve or the catalytic converter that caused it to fail. at the same time when i let the car sit in the outdoors at work in the sun...


Have your main power relay replaced. It's what is causing your hard start, after the car is hot, especially sitting in the sun. It's located under the driver's side dash. As for the reason why you failed smog, could be the two you listed.

Need more information but if it doesn't start when the interior is hot (like if it has been sitting in the sun) you should replace the fuel relay.

04 Grand AM trouble starting in the sun.


I had a Honda Civic that did the same thing, I replaced the multi-relay (which has the computer power relay and fuel pump relay in it) in the car and it never did it again. Your car should have a seperate fuel pump relay, in the black box under the hood. You might also want to have the control module tested after the car sits out in the sun and won't start. Auto Zone can test them. I would also check for fuel at the test fitting on the fuel rail when it won't start. It maybe the relay.

My 88 will crank but at times will not start. if left to sit for a while will start then runs great. the fuel pressure is good any ideas


It happens to my 93 Integra but mostly when the car is sitting in the sun or when the weather is hot. What works sometimes, is to step on the gas pedal down to the floor and start the car at the same time. Other times, I wait a few minutes and then do the same thing.

Maxima does not start easily after sitting in hot sun for a while


Hot and cold? Hmmmmmmmm, interesting,You may want to to have the air temperature sensor replaced. Its a small sensor on the intake duct coming of the air cleaner. You can change it yourself if needed. Good Luck
