My step-sons 99 jeep Cherokee has been running fine and he went to work everything was fine got off work went out to leave now it won't start I went to his work it appears not to have any spark at the plug wires gas gauge which he says works is on empty so we put about 3 gallons in and still is not registering and still doesn't start sprayed starting fluid no go the odometer while switch is on says (no bus) would it be a control module or fuel pump I have no Manual at this time and have checked


If the dash is reading no bus, check the connections on the ECM, the vehicle computer, and check the fuses and relays in the power distribution box under the hood. Your problem is going to be in one of those areas or the ECM has shorted out. ... 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Theft system I have a 91 cadillac eldorado. when I go to start it the information center says "starting disabled/due to theft system/remove key" then it says to wait 3 minutes then start car.

Can I disalble the theft system, If so how?


Unfortunately, you cannot bypass or disable this system. It runs through the computer system or BCM and is controlled by that computer. You can check connections on the back of the ignition switch which I believe in this car is located ... 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE

My 1989 Amigo just killed on me when I was trying to start it. Turns over but wont start. I just replaced the fuel pump 2 years ago, roughly 25,000 mi ago. I replaced the fuel filter. Fuel pump relay has power going to it, and I stuck the same 5 pronged model relay in and it still wouldn't start. I checked all fuses and they look good HOWEVER, my test light lights up all of the fuse sockets except 2; The one that says "Fuel pump" and the one right below it that says "start". I traced the wiring

The engine control module in my 2008 dodge sprinter is not putting out a 5vdc signal to the fly by wire accellarator pedal so the engine won't start. The mechanic disconnected all the sensors one by one and engine still would not start or even start and go into limp mode. They say its the ecm but they sound unsure? Is there a hidden fuse on the 5vdc somewhere? I've tried both my keys in case the engine wasnt recognizing one but still no start


One way is to cut the 5v wire in a place thats easy to repair, near the computer, and see if it comes back to life. if not, it needs an ECM ...IF it does, then you still need to find out what else is connected that is shorting out your 5v ref voltag ... 2006 Dodge Sprinter

What am i missing or doing wrong?

Still having a problem with my car starting. It has started intermittently,but is broke down right now about two miles from the house. My battery is being drained and my car only makes a clicking sound when I try to start it. I also can't get a jumpstart.

I have a 1997 gmc jimmy 4.3 throttle body injection. Motor turns over, Has spark, And is getting fuel But it still wont start. I checked the spark by pulling off a plug wire and sticking a screw driver in it and holding it 1/4 inch away from block, (good spark) Also have checked the timing to make sure it didnt jump time. Still in time. has 64 psi fuel, So thats good. Also tried some carb cleaner in the throttle body and still nothing. Just shut it off one day and will NOT start up.


A few more things to check:\015\012\015\0121. Compression test. You must have the right amount of fuel, the right amount of air and then compress it and supply a spark at the correct TIME for the engine to fire \015\012\015\012So you ma ... 1997 GMC Jimmy

I turned my car off to go into the store when I came back out it wouldn't start. acted like it wasn't getting fuel put more gas in it still wouldn't start. someone said it was probably fuel pump so I put a fuel pump on it then a fuel filter, then a crank shaft censor, still won't start, someone then told me it was the theft system so I tried two different methods that two different shops told me to try neither of the two worked, now someone says it could be the timing, can anyone tell me how to


Again i say do not replace parts until you know why, too many people have done this. get a spark tester(in line works best) injector tester(noid light) and fuel pressure guage, and a volt ohm meter, the run basic tests, spark, fuel , injector signal, ... 1999 Chevrolet Cavalier

Several Weeks ago the squealing sound of a belt started. I didn't attend to it, and this past week started the car and a horribly loud metal scratching noise arose and a neighbor said it sounded like a water pump, alternator, timeing belt? Had a mechanic say Timing belt, and another say serpentine. I chose the latter to be fix b/c it was cheaper. Now the sound is softer, but still there. Could this be that the belt that ran/turned the part failed for so long that the part is bad? Or what? Thanks


I would say that there is a bearing going bad either the alternator, waterpump, or idler. You should take off the serpentine and check the smoothness of motion of anything connected. What happens is that the bearing gets rougher and rougher adding ... 1997 Mazda 626

I was in the store the other day & the alarm went off on my 97 acura tl 3.2 . When I came out the store everything had died out including the battery which was already weak. I put a new battery in and car still wont start - it won't turn over. I towed car to my mechanic and he thinks the alarm may have disabled the car . He has tried to reset alarm by turning key (locking & unlocking ) in drivers and passengers door but car still wont start . He says theres no juice going to the starter .


Yes the starter is not getting the required pressure to start the car.as when you insert the key in ignition module the car gives command to the starter and car cranks and throw pressure to the alternater and that throws pressure with current to the ... Acura TL
