Well i don't know if this applies to the prism, but let me give you my own experience. I had a Toyoto Camry. Every morning, especially in the wintertime, i experienced the same "clicking noise" In the beginning, i couldn't permanent fix, but what i did to get the car started was to pump the gas pedal, and then usually it would start.

Later, I went into get it serviced, and they said that the battery was getting old, and needed replacing. I replaced it, and the problems went away.

Where is the start relay on a 96 Geo prism I can find it


wont crank? Check fuses first? (USA answers)
use the scan tool and get P1500" starter signal dead?
which engine, 1.6L or 1.8L which trans, A/T or M/T (auto./stick)
did you try cranking in Neutral (guessing A/T)??
the relay with 2 white wires, it is.
the USA left drivers side fuse box. is WHERE it is.
if you hot wire the starter and it cranks its, ok the starter
if car cranks in Neutral the PRNDL switch is bad.
if the relay below has 12vdc on coil or 11v, cranking
voltmeter across coil and output contact is dead the relay is bad.
if no 12v across , that means bad key line (PNRLD) or bad ignition switch, (hot wired starter works, is base line 1st test)

Car is in park on incline, and will not start.


There is a neutral safety switch to make sure car is neutral.If that switch went bad or becase your parked on incline the switch is not made up because car rolled back when you put it in park.If you can depending on the situation,put key in ignition,turn key till one click before it starts,apply emergency brake,depress regular brakes and shift car from park to drive then back to park.then turn off key and restart.If for some reason you try to shift out of park and it wont move you need to roll car a little forward or backward(have someone else do the pushing and be carefull not to put anyone in a pinch point between another car if this car is parked between two cars)With older cars this is usally the case.If this fixes your problem i would have a mechanic change switch because this will probrobly happen again.Be carefull.......

Jumps when I pull away first thing in the morning, no problem when warm (1999 Jetta GL)


the same thing happend to my 1996 jetta trek. when u put it in reverse to start off anywhere its perfectly fine. but when u put it into drive it stalls for a few seconds than jumps.
The transmission is going to go out on you anyday.
mine blew on me about a month when this started happening to me.
i was driving and the car just randomly went into neutral, tried all the gears and all i had was reverse.
BLOWN!

took it to 2 different places to get it fixed, 1st place asked $3500, 2nd place asked $2500.
too much money so we had a family friend put a rebuilt tranny in for $1600.
