Having problems with your 1996 Geo Prizm ?
Cranks sometime I have a 1996 Prizm Lsi. it was doing good until lately. now sometimes it wont start and just make a click sound. when i try later it starts up several time then i wont start again. seems like itt got a mind of its own lol
You have burnt/pitted contacts in the starter solenoid, very common on Nippondenso starters, which the Geo uses. If you can get just the contacts rebuild it, otherwise replace the solenoid and or the starter, if you have really high miles it is better to replace the whole starter with a rebuilt unit from any quality rebuilder, Delco is a real good one, The best price I found was at Rockauto.com, $72.00 for a Delco rebuilt unit. Contacts are availiable from Ohiomotor.com
