Question about 1997 Chevrolet Lumina

2 Answers

I have a chevy lumina 1997. It has the passkey in it. I had to replace my starter and my coolant relay, now when I try to start this is what happens. It cranks, it ignites, but won't stay on...it dies. All lights eveything works, but the power locks and that it won't stay started. I believe that the anti theft secuirity has been tripped, but no security light comes on. Help!! Please?

You can go and get a resistor they way u check the resistance in the key is get ohms reader and check the chip in the key then go to radio shack and buy the same value in resistors they are only like 1 mabye 2 dollars after that under the steering column there should be a orange wire hunter saftey orange that goes to a connector and unplug it put the resistors in and it will start

I have a 1997 chevy lumina. just replaced radiator. low coolant light is on. It cranks & runs fine for few miles then just shuts off & won't start back for few hours. what could be the problem?


Could be two different issues.
The low coolant light could be low coolant or a faulty switch.
The other problem could be a long list of things including a fuel pump, a relay, the ignition module, or other things.
You would need to figure out if it is lacking spark or fuel to know which system to test.

Can you turn the crank with a wrench ?
The motor could be locked up.
Do you have battery voltage at the starter with the key in the start position ?

Where the starter relay at in 95'chevy lumina


There may be a problem with your antitheft security system. This will turn off the starter and make it appear to not be functioning properly. Look for a light that says SECURITY when you try to start your car. If you see that light, go to this link for help.

97 chevy lumina are there coolant fan sensors


This year doen't use a separate sensor for the cooling fans, it uses the ECT (engine coolant temp sensor) sensor that monitors engine temperature for the fuel control system, the computer turns the fans (via a relay) on when the engine reaches about 225-230 Degrees F

Where is the starter relay on my 2001 chevy lumina when i turn the key nothing will happen battery is good and ive replaced the starter


There is no starter relay. But there is a part of the antitheft system that will turn off the starter. When your key is forward, do you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY? If so, this is 100% the problem. Check out this link for info and answers that can do yourself.

My 1997 Chevy Lumina won't start, it sounds like it wants to but it wont turn over, has gas, tried the carb spray, still won't start. Help!!!


did you use carb cleaner or starter fluid. if you try starter fluid and it starts for a second and then dies you might have a fuel pressure issue. if not check for spark.

some are fused and has relay. check fuse and relays. replace with the same type, you could try to interchange the relays if they are of the same type.

1997 Chevy Lumina Starter


Pretty straightforeward job... Attach the harness to the starter (battery disconnected of course) The wires are usually joined and only go on one way (ones with big loops go on big center bolt, little ones go on small bolt. (same for Plug ins if any) If you have the original hardware, just put the starter back where it goes and bolt it in! Re-attach the battery and try the ign switch. Listen for bad noises... if any, check flywheel and instalation.
Good luck!!
