You might check the primary coil inside the distributor. There are actually two coils inside. the secondary is below the distributor plate. It's best to replace both, as if you replace only the primary, and the secondary is also dead, it's much easier to do it once. The parts do not cost much. I made the mistake of replacing just the primary, only to find after re-istalling the distributor that the secondary was also out. (very uncommon) Good luck.AnswerHey Randell== It is probably the anti theft thing. It needs to be checked out by someone that knows about these things.. Good luck Joe
if your getting spark it may be your fuel pump relay switch i had the same problem check the wires going to it if there old they may be frayed and dried out this will make them ark then all your car does is turn over not getting fuel
most times it is the vats (vehicle anti tampering system) that is the electronic chip built into the key this failure will not let the starter crank. sometime cleaning the key and chip with rubbing alcohol will degrease the key and start but most times it is a bad vats module located behind passenger side dash pad. if you can get the car up on a lift check for a12 volt signal to starter when key is turned,if no power try jumpimg the start and the battery wire on starter this should make starter crank.and you know starter is good and not receiving a start signal from vats or neutral safety
To replace the battery on a 1979 Corvette, disconnect the battery cables using the proper tool. Remove the bar that holds the battery in place and pull out the battery. Place the new battery in and reconnect the cables.
A lot of the time Chevy used aluminum battery cables in their cars,(in particular my 1980) I was continually having starting and battery problems until I replaced the cables with copper.
Yes. A battery can be charged while in the vehicle.
break lines need to be replaced, check the battery cables to if that's not it then the battery may just need charged
If it starts with jumper cables you still have a battery problem. The battery is too small, is not charged, or you have a bad cable or connection.
When using battery cables to start a car, once it has started is there a procedure when removing the cables from the running car?
Did you install a fully charged battery of the correct group size and connect the cables securely? Did you incorrectly jumpstart the car with the cables reversed and break things before replacing the battery? Did it turn over before you replaced the battery?
Check the battery cables or starter.
Disconnect battery cables from battery for 30 minutes and then reconnect battery it then resets.
Corroded battery cables. Remove the battery cables, negative first, and clean the cable connections and the battery posts. If that does not help the battery needs charging or is defective.
PT Cruiser batteries can be jumped with jumper cables. When jumper cables are attached to the battery in the PT Cruiser and are attached to the battery and another car battery, the battery will get charged, after a few minutes.
check the battery and connections/cables
Either the battery cables are dirty, battery is not fully charged, or the solenoid is stuck.
Remove the positive battery cable from your 1999 Chevrolet Corvette at battery. Remove the starter cables from the front of the starter. Remove the starter retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install your new starter.
Replacing battery terminals??? How did you accomplish that. Do you mean you replaced the battery or are you referring to the battery cables? If you replaced the cables are you sure you have them connected correcty and tight. Especially the ground connection. Take a reading with an ohm meter from the neg battery post to the engine or chassis. If the circuit is open, you have a bad connection.
Check the battery and see if it is charged or needs to be changed. Check the battery cables Check the starter condition
You can get a new battery, you can jump start the car with jumper cables and another car with a charged battery. You can also put a battery charger on your battery to give it a charge.
Open hatch behind drivers seat......remove battery cables.....remove battery hold down clamp at lower back flange of battery...pull out battery....replace in reverse order.
I have replaced the battery on my 04 sprinter twice now... Pop the hood loosen battery cables, remove the cables and remove battery hold down. To replace just repeat this proccess backwords.
Try the cables from your battery and alt. Sometimes these can corrode.
is the battery fully charged?
Connect the positive cable to the positive battery post on the donor car and on the Corvette. Connect the negative cable to some metal part of each vehicle, such as the engine. Be careful of the fan blades on each car. Let the donor car run for approximately 15 minutes to put a slight charge in the battery on the Corvette before you attempt to start it. Start the Corvette and as soon as it starts disconnect the battery cables.
have the cables been checked. same happened to my 87 same problem found it was the orgnial cables needed to be replaced.
