Question about 1995 Geo Prizm

2 Answers

I need location of a 1995 Geo Prizm 1.8 fuel pump relay

I have a 1995 Geo Prizm 4 door 1.8 and it has been cranking but not turning over, we wait 10 mins and it would turn over correctly then 3 days ago it would crank but not turn over. We learned that the fuel pump was not working and after replacing with a new pump the new pump did not work aswell so my options I'm presuming are fuel pump relay? correct? I can not seem to find where it is at all to even test. Keep in mind I'm a 26 year old female with no knowledge other than the ability to change oil,tires,and basic needs. Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think it is under your rear seat cushion. Remove the rear seat cushion, you'll see the gas tank cover.

The location of the fuel pump reset button on a 96 Geo Prizm if it has one.

No fuel pump reset switch. There are two relays that need to be energized to turn the fuel pump on. The EFI relay in the under hood fuse / relay box . Plus circuit opening relay . If the EFI relay is working you can test for B+ voltage at pin 12 at the DLC - data link connector , do you know what the DLC is an where it is located ? The circuit opening relay is located under the center console .
Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the center console. Remove the circuit opening relay (1) electrical connector. Remove the one bolt and circuit opening from the I/P bracket.
It look's to be on the right side support bracket under center console .Do you know how relays work ? You can go on you tube an check out videos on how to test relays !

Buying a car

the car is really a Toyota, but the real question is did GM move it.
that makes it harder.

off all questions ,locations are the hardest.
many books dont say, because the makers love to move parts around.
the only book that gets it correct is the FSM. why not get one.
and keep it with car. so you dont have to get help for every page.
and hark some cars there is no seperate Fuel pump relay.
its part if the ECU main. common on some 1990 Geos.
my first question is why do you need this?

my online page shows?
Fuel pump relay is located at the lower left side of the relay box - fuel injected engine.
i dont trust online , for older cars, they mix, parts up badly (SSDD)
and i look more and its a mix of metro's and nova/s ,trash info.
i cant even find a schematic, which is what i look for first.
to see the relay and now it REALLY works, and not assume i just know.
im looking in toyota online now (Geo docs are iffy, at best GM)
find a real GM GEO used FSM off fleabay.

4A engines, the relay is called C7 "circuit opening relay"
has 5 pins and forms mag. "OR "logic inside.
the relay closes for CRANK "OR" ECU happy.
ECU happy means , spark is ok "AND" engine is running. pin FC on ECU.
now 7A, its the same, i never assume it, i look

found it , this car has no less than 6 Junction boxes. relay and fuse.
4 in engine bay if ABS car.
and 10 relay location drawing.
why not look on line at and see them.
JB2 is the box. in engine bay, left strut tower. (usa drivers side)
they have EFI main relay
and one more called engine main, with 5 pins.
so its not even called a fuel pump relay, hard to find.

facing box.
see top row off relays
and bottom row of fuse.
so left to right is. (not canada , only uSA)
horn--radfan1---EMR---headlight--EFI main,

so EMR is fuel pump.
i found it under toyota corolla, 1993.
if GM does this diffr, i dont know, get a real GM book.


Wheres the inertia switch located on a 1996 geo prizm

why not post symptoms.?
what engine, 1.6L or 1.8l or? 4a or 7a toy engine.
there is no such switch.
its really Toyota Corolla.
my guess, it dont start? or dont crank
and you didnt check fuses first.
and the CEL dont glow key on
or you failed notice the immobolizer is active?

the fuel pump relay has 2 coils,
one for PCM control
and the crank signal.
there is no inertial switch
i looked at at a 1.8L.

post sympotoms and i can work it to the cause
it only takes a $10 voltmeter, to fix most problems.

Replaced fuel pump in 1995 geo prizm, now it is flooding.

this is actually a toytal engine, but they had 2 , 1.6L and 1.8L>
which is yours. but I answer in generic form, EFI.
ever do a full 60k mile service on that engine.?
that white smoke is a bad sign.

Where are the fuel injectors located on a 1995 geo prizm

are you dealing with a no start or with a poorly running engine? if it runs very poorly and shaky when cold but then improves as it warms up, it could have clogged injectors. if it's not starting, then I doubt that clogged injectors could be the cause; more likely it would be that they aren't getting juice at all.

1995 geo prizm with no spark

no spark at all 4 spark plugs or 1. (using fresh test spark plug?)
is the distributor rotor turning , cranking.?
was the cam belt changed at 60,000 miles, as you must?

95 geo prizm wont start

wont crank or will not start.? 2 unique things. no crank always results in , no start (unless you push start the car)
hot wiring the fuel pump relay or any relay in the EFI system , invites
blowing the ECU to kingdom come, bad to the bone that.
I fixed them for 50 years. (electronics controls, so know it !)
you do know its really a toyota right?
what ENGINE? each works different.
my prizm text dump.
joint venture, GM/toyota with 3 engine used.
1.8L or 1.6L
toy engine, 4aFE, 7AFE or 4AG
open hood look
or use the GM RPO tag
or Use the VIN to find motor used.
for docs?
Geo Prizm factory service manual, Duh?;jsessionid=D19D723C2EDB4A9FE12E7C01C0677129?_sacat=0&_nkw=geo+prizm+shop+manual&_nkwusc=geo+prizm+shop+manaul&_rdc=1

does car start with test fuel and run, until the fuel runs out.
do you have fuel pressure, while reading the FSM , way of doing it.
some cars only make fuel pressure, cranking and runing.
other make pressure, for 3 seconds key on, and cranking and running only, and all cars drop pump and injections when ECU sees spark die.
that is why stating which Toyota engine YOU HAVE, helps with diagnosis. and please stop hot wiring your car and learn to use a voltmeter. Ive seen $3000 ECU blown up do to bad mechanics.

Where is the emergency shut off in a 1995 geo prizm?

All cars, EFI. (some have 3 fuse to operate ECU/spark/ fuel) check em yet?
check power to pump 12v cranking?
no, ? 12v, or 6v? (6v or near is corroded wires /conns)
check power (12v) from fuel pump relay cranking, got 12v there.
if yes , the the path is broken to the rear ) (inertial switch?, not in 95)
if not,12v now, the FP relay is bad or ECU is not turning it on.
if 12v is across the FP relay coil the ECU is working.
if 12v is across this relay, and output is dead, that is a bad relay
or the FI use feeding it is blown.
btw #1 all cars cut fuel (INJ) when spark is detected bad. (ecu)
btw#2 some (software) cut the fuel pump for same reasons.
btw#3, most cars, only activate the FP relay for 3 seconds key on, each time. and some cars only cranking, and running.
all these facts, need to be known to make progress, in EFI.
and more.

Have 95 geo prizm with no fuel pump relays and fuses are good. when i jump the relay i can hear the pump work.. is there any other sensors that would cause the pump not to work

The oil pressure sending unit will stop the pump from running. This cuts the car off if it senses no oil pressure. Same sensor that gives you the pressure reading or the dummy light.

Need to remove the door panel on a 1995 geo prizm. How do you do this.

You start by removing the screw on the door latch on the inside of the door. Then you separate the top of the arm rest from the bottom by firmly pulling upwards with your thumbs, releasing the pins. Then pull the cardboard panel from the bottom of the door, movign upwards pulling firmly until the clips become loosened from the door frame.Lastly, remove the window crank to remove the door panel.

To remove the window crank handle you will need to purchase a tool that is specifically made for this task. It is produced my GM and sells at your local parts store for about $12.00. The tool slides between the window crank and the interior panel and you turn to release.
