Hey Tim==If you have to giggle the switch I would think the problen is in the switch not in the wire. GoodluckJoe
first remove wiper arms from vehicle next with ignition on, turn wipers on then off. the wiper motor will stop at the down position. replace wiper arms onto shaft ,in the correct down position where you want them. now with ignition on, try wipers again,to check if in the stop position you want them.
should be on right side, front of engine. at upper radiater hose, if not there check the thermostat housing!! on the 3.1 it is located by the ignition control module.
Check pressure At idle 13-20 psi With ignition on and not running 23-31 psi
If the 1990 Chevy Lumina is blowing the DIS 10 Amp fuse when the ignition is on, check to make sure that all wires coming from this fuse are grounded properly. Also check to make sure the starter is wired properly. There could also be a loose wire in the dash near the ignition.
check the battery voltage, check battery cables, check ignition switch(where you turn the key), or check the crankshaft position sensor. cheers
you should check the crank sensor and ignition modual
When the key is turned on do you have a Check Engine light on? You should. If not you might have a blown fuse, damaged wiring, dead computer, or bad ignition switch. Otherwise, before you do anything else check your fuses. If you have all good fuses, try replacing the crankshaft position sensor.
Things to check are: ignition switch, manual lever position switch, ignition relay, your starter, and last, your battery. Check all wires, cables and connections for condition and cleanliness.
It's probably either the keyswitch or the ignition coil resistor (if it uses one) It could also be a coil connector or faulty wire. I'd also check the two small wires that are bolted to the coil on the positive side. One is hot only when the ignition key is in the start position. The other is hot only when the ignition key is in the run position. Check to see if you have voltage there with the key in the run position, if you don't, check continuity of the wire itself, then check the ignition switch, wiring harness plug (drivers side, just below brake master cylinder) and everything else in the ignition circuit.
Check my answer for 1985 380se with the same problem. Steven
it can, but i would check the ignition control module first....then the crank sensor.....
Check to make sure there is power going to your coils from your ignition switch.
Check the Sonoma crank position first. If the sensor is bad then there will be no spark from the coil.
may be button on gear handle is stacked, check position of button, release it fully.
Make Sure your battery full charged sometimes the battery might be low or bad and it is not give it the spark it need to turn over what you can do is get under the car find the starter and the to nuts hodlind the starter you can hit them with a hammer gentlely and have someone hold the ignition in the start position and that usally will cause it to turn over if not then you need a new starter I have a 94 Chevy Lumina euro and it did the same thing
turn your ignition to the on position then off. do this for a total of three times, on the third time leave ignition in on position and look at your odometer. your computer will show up to tell you why your check engine light is on.... then search and find out what the codes are.
Check actual engine temperature with a thermometer--if in acceptable range temperature sensor or gauge may be defective
Check Ignition Coils Check Ignition Coils
the solenoid itself is probably bad, if not that probably the ignition switch I agree 100%, check the solenoid first then the switch.
check neutral safety switch, or it is possible that a bad ignition switch could cause this...or loose or broken wiring!!
Worn ignition switch? Check to see if it has a rod connected to ignition switch at the lower end of the steering column--may needs adjustment
When you turn the ignition key to the run position just before starting the vehicle the check engine light will light for a few seconds to check the bulb
Check power to ignition switch with ignition turned on check the on position at back of barrel for power for starters, EA falcons have a thick film module which i think is located in the dizzy, which if faulty could burn a coil out.. good luck
I had this problem when it rained. It would help if you gave more info. Check ur ignition cables/spark plugs. keep 'em clean and dry of moisture.
Check the ignition control module...notorious for this problem
