Having problems with your 2000 GMC Jimmy ?

I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy 4x2 Diamond Edition. Sometimes when I try to crank the car it won't turn over, but after a few tries in cranks with no problem. I have replaced my starter with a good used one, I have a new battery, fuel pump turns on (loud), and lighting works fine, except for the dash board that has always been out since I bought the car in August. What could be the problem?

My 97 Saturn will not start it almost turns over then stops. none of the interior lights are working or the radio but the outdoor running lights work just fine. I tried to boost it and got nothing. We just had a new fuel pump (in gas tank) put in and new spark plugs and filter. there is plenty of gas getting through but not fire to light it. I've checked the spark plugs myself and their fine. And the car sounds healthy when trying to turn over.

My 1995 Pontiac Grand Am SE won't start. When I turn the car on there are NO dashboard lights (NONE), my chime works, the radio works... The battery cables are not rusty. The alternator, starter, and battery are fine. What could it be? I know I have to replace the oil sensor and the fuel filter. BUT that should not control my dashboard lights.

Have a 97 VW Passat VR6, it died one day as the check engine light came on, it would run for a few minutes and then die, running shorter each time. Took it in to the shop and got the fuel pump replaced, which seemed to solve the problem. Car ran fine for the mechanic, and started up fine when I went to take it home. But 2 hours after getting it home, the engine turns over but just won't start at all. Any ideas? (fuel filter & fuel pump are new)

Engine wont turn on, Battery is new, doesn't make any sound at all when turning the ignition on, all lights light up when turning ignition but does not start up. Perfectly normal when left the car, but wouldn't start up when I came back 30 minutes later. Has factory alarms but works just fine. Im not sure if its security reason that it shuts the engine or starter problem ( should make a clicking sound if it was starter).

Instead of reving it till it does work again though I've found that if I put the car in park turn it off then start it again it will work fine but it is still a problem that needs to be fixed.

I had this problem with mine. the car would run fine and then just stop working. it ened up being the main relay under the driver side dash. the main relay is what turns your fuel pump on and off and Honda had a problem of putting to soft of soder in the relay with would make it crack after some years. you can take it out and resoder the connections or buy a new one for around 50 bucks. i wouldn't recommend putting a used one in because all of the factory installed relays had this problem.

Every thing has been checked - new plugs, sensor, pump, injectors all working fine - but the car turns over just won't fire - Could bad gas cause this? - Car was running fine turned off at work came out 8 hrs later hasn't workd since - I had just put 3/4 fuel injecton cleaner in gas that morning and I had 1/2 tank of gas worked fine to get me to work. Could it be I got some bad gas and the Injector cleaner thinned it too much?


Fuel injector cleaner is very powerful. Most bottles caution against using a whole bottle with less than a full tank of gas. Smaller cars with smaller gas tanks are advised not to use a whole bottle.\012\012I did have an experience myself ... 1998 Chevrolet Malibu
