94 Grand Prix starting issues

Recommended Posts

I have a 94 GP that the starter would not always engage. You could turn the key and hear a click no starter but there was full power in the cab. You could then turn the key again and it would start. Checked all of the connections and they are clean and tight, check the theft detterant system and that was operating properly so I decided to replace the starter because the car has 160,000 miles on it. After replacing the starter there was not an issue for 3 weeks now its acting up again. Is there a starter relay under the dash that could be giving me problems?? or maybe it's the reman starter acting up??

Is the battery in good condition? I know you said there was full power in the cab, but maybe not enough juice to turn it over? I've had times where I thought the starter was out or going, but it ended up just being the battery.

The only relay in this circuit is the theft deterent relay. When it doesnt start try it in nuetral,and park. Then I would check for power on the smaller solenoid wire at the starter when it doesnt crank, if it has power and doesnt start then it is the new starter. If it doesnt have power, check the theft deterent relay, or swap it out with a different one.

Not a bad flywheel the start soleniod does not engage. I need to do some more testing but I'm thinking that I have a bad reman starter.

I'd say your on the right track Red.

One click is typically the starter solenoid not doing its job. Multible clicks while the key is in the crank position is typically the battery.

Turns out after further testing that the car had a voltage drop at a connection. I corrected the problem and it starts fine. Thanks for the input!

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
