Are you scanned the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) to know is some fault code is stored there? did you check to make sure the wiring was OK at the PCM? No cuts or broken wiring.

You have a new battery, its possible that your THEFT system is armed? Check in the owners manual the disarm procedure.

First thing to do is make sure both the positive and negative battery cables are clean and tight on the battery. If they are clean and tight then the next thing to do would be to swing into a PepBoys or AutoZone and have them test the battery. They will test it for free for you; if that battery is tested good (make sure they test the cold cranking amps) and the cables are clean and tight then more than likely there is a starter issue.

One soft reset mayeb could help; the unfortunate problem is that unless you have access to a GM scantool and computer there is little you can do on these newer antitheft systems. The vehicle likely needs the password XXXXX or programmed unless you have been using a spare key. Try using the key that you know for sure has started it in the past, if you try using some of the spare keys, they are only for door locks or trunk. Anyhow feel free to ask me any questions regarding this but there is little I or anyone else can do unless you have a gm scantool, so you may have to get it towed to the local GM dealer unless the dealership will send someone over to you to help, sometimes they do this since it does not take long. I'll provide the reprogram instructions just to show you:

10-Minute Relearn Procedure
Important: Use only a master key when performing the first relearn procedure. If a valet key is used first, the TDM will not allow additional keys to be learned.

Use this procedure after replacing any of the following components:
• The vehicle keys.
• The TDM.

Important: When replacing a TDM with a GM SPO Replacement Part, ensure the procedure to setup a new theft deterrent module is performed prior to the 10-minute relearn procedure.
Connect a scan tool to the vehicle.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
Ensure that all power consuming devices are turned OFF on the vehicle.
With a scan tool, select Request Info. under Service Programming System and follow the scan tool on-screen instructions.
Disconnect the scan tool from the vehicle and connect the scan tool to a Techline Terminal with the current Service Programming System (SPS) software.
On the Techline Terminal, select Service Programming System and follow the Techline Terminal on-screen instructions. Ensure the correct programming selection is chose based on component being replaced or programmed. For this procedure, choose the Vehicle Theft Deterrent menu selection.
Disconnect the scan tool from the Techline Terminal and re-connect the scan tool to the vehicle.
With a master vehicle key, turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF.
With a scan tool, select Program ECU under Service Programming System.
At this point the scan tool must remain connected for the duration of the 10-minute relearn procedure.

Important:
• The scan tool will initially display 12 Minutes. The first 2 minutes allow the scan tool to initialize the appropriate control module. The remaining 10 minutes is the relearn timer.
• On some vehicles the security indicator may be illuminated for the duration of the 10-minute relearn procedure.

Observe the scan tool, after approximately 10 minutes the scan tool will display "Programming Successful, Turn OFF Ignition". The vehicle is now ready to relearn the key information and/or the passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.
Turn OFF the ignition and wait 2 minutes.
With a master vehicle key, turn the ignition to the RUN position for 15 seconds, then start the vehicle. The TDM has now learned the key transponder information and the ECM has learned the fuel continue password.
With a scan tool, clear any DTCs.


Hope helps.

I have a 2004 Chevy trailblazer no start no crank but if I put key on hot wire the starter it will start I replace new ignition switch and new starter relay b


Before you do any thing check for loose or bad connections. Also check you ground connection to engine. Check Fuses, relay and for a Fusible Link open circuit. Now let me explain what a Fusible Link does. They are short lengths of small gauge wire installed between the Battery and the Ignition Switch, or the Battery and the Fuse Panel. They'll melt and open the circuit before damage occurs in the rest of the circuit. I hope this was helpful you.

No power going to ignition control module, what would cause this?


Yes, the pink wire to the ICM and from the run/crank relay should have battery voltage in run or start. If not, check fuse 11, a 10 amp fuse in the Fuse Block-Underhood. Also check fuses 38- a 30 amp fuse supplying power to the run/crank relay, and fuse 9- a 10 amp fuse between the run/crank relay and the ECM. All of these fuses are in the underhood fuse block.
Fuse 38-the 30 amp fuse, the power feed for the run/crank relay- will be hot at all times. Fuses 9 and 11 will be hot in run or start. Check for power at the fuses. If the relay is not turning on and sending power to those fuses and to the ICM, and the ECM, (and to the injectors through fuse 16 - a 10 amp fuse), then work back to the ignition switch and the body control module. Wish I didn't have to say that, but yes, the BCM is between the ignition switch and the run/crank relay.
Good luck, Michael.

No power to dash or crank


It's pos to be an ign switch but before throwing a lot of expensive parts at it before ya fix it I would check All the fuses & relays first, & they're a lot of them an Caddys. Under hood, under dash, under rear seat, if battery is under seat a lot of fuses & relays are there too, (but probably not for these issues). Check anything labeled IGN or ignition switch, or for any system that isn't working, dash/cluster, starter. If the fuses & relays are good then get a test light & start checking from there.

Fuel pump won't run unless engine is cranking, but won't start


Are you sure it's running when cranking? It should have come on when key turned on.
This is for camrys up to year '91. It may apply in your '95, also. Check the 7.5 amp ignition fuse and the 15 amp EFI fuse and the EFI main relay, all located in the fuse box next to your battery. There is also the circuit opening relay tied in to fuel pump operation. It is usually found under center of dash. It is usually not the problem, but it is part of the checks for fuel pump operation.
If your car has a " check connector" or "service connector" (also called a fuel pump check connector) under hood on driver's side near the firewall (a little 1 inch cube with a cap on it), then bridge terminals +B and Fp with a jumper wire. Turn key to on (don't start car). The pump should come on. Listen for fuel return noise from the fuel pressure regulator, and verify pressure in hose from the fuel filter. If nothing, check those fuses above. Here is how power runs to pump: Battery to 40 amp main fusible link-to 15 amp EFI fuse-to EFI main relay-to circuit opening relay-to fuel pump-to ground. Ignition switch and the computer (ECU) work the relays to pass power to pump. Hope this helps some, Randy. Good luck.

Installed brand new starter, battery fully charged, and still wont crank. It starts when I kick start it. 1988 nissan pathfinder. What else could be the problem? Relay switch? Or ignition? Please help


Check the ignition switch, and the wiring to the starter solenoid. Get someone to turn the key to the crank (start) position and check for voltage at the starter solinoid. Check the starter relay and all fuses.
