Sparks will happen when hooking up the Pos battery terminal if something is on in the car,, causing draw, its normal, Unless its a HUGE amount that looks Like you could weld with the arc,, then you have a direct short and it will need to be backtracked

Some sparking would be normal if you have the neg. already hooked up but it is best practice to connect the positive first.

With the negative side not connected nor touching any other metal surface, there should be no sparking.

Then connect the negative side. Again, always disconnect the neg. side first and connect the neg. side last. I think you will have less sparking going on then.

1995 chevy silverado will not start when it is below 40 degrees


This could be alot of things. You could have a weak battery and the cells are freezing up when cold. You could have a coil problem. Do you have spark and fuel? You may have a plugged fuel filter, water in your gas, bad module, poor grounds. It could be a lot of things. A loose cable will cause this also. Do you have a service engine soon light when it runs in warm weather?

check to make sure the security light is not on if it is the van will have spark but no injecter pulse the best way to solve this issue is to have the original igniton key and put it in the igniton in the run position and leave it on for 10 minutes then the light will flash then try to start the van

2005 chevy silverado won;t start.


i had the same problem, and it turned out the coil pack was moulding inside wich stopped the spark all together, i ended up changing my coil pack and putting on new wires because the ends connected to the coil were very corroded and that cures the not running part just fine


enjoy

I would check a few things:
Load test the battery. If its got any age on it at all, this could be the culprit.
Test the starter.
Check for loose connections at the distributor cap. Make sure the rotor in the cap is seated and that the cap is properly seated.
Check for loose connections on the battery, the starter and make sure you have fuel pressure on the injector rails (key on, detent the shrader valve .. you should get fuel).

2000 chevy 1500 4 wheel drive electronic shift runs fine then speedo starts to go erratic then stops working then the brake warning light comes on then the abs light comes on then the transmission shifts...


Check your battery terminal connections. Because so much of these trucks are computer controlled a bad connection at the battery will cause alot of electrical bugs. I had to replace my transmission about a year ago. Just prior to having that done my speedo was going crazy at times. The brake warning light usually means you have one or more calipers that need to be replaced. Start with the battery terminal connections.

No power after changing gas fuel pump for 91 chev


You have a short to ground.What that means is,you have a power wire...............that is grounding on the vehicle somewhere,or possibly back in the fuel pump.The fuel pump theoretically could be shorted internally causing the problem.It also could be a wire or wires back where you were working possibly got pinched.Disconnect negative battery terminal until problem is solved.
