Question about GMC Savana

2 Answers

2011 GMC Savanna turn key to start position, key springs back like it is supposed to, starter stays engaged and will not stop unless I turn key off.

Does not attempt to fire, dash lights up, fuel pump does not turn on. We have replaced the ignition key module and it has not solved the issue.

You have a bad ignition issue. It’s more than likely a module. This can be found in steering column.

Sounds like a bad ignition key module. Should be on the steering column hidden under some trim.

    Yes. Try swapping fuel pump relay with AC or door lock relay.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge intrepid won't start

If the key is returning to  the 'Run' position as it should, then either a relay controlling the solenoid or the solenoid itself is hanging up. The heavy contacts that send power to the starter can develop rough surfaces that can temporarily weld themselves together causing the starter to run on even though the engine is running and the key has returned to the proper position. There is also a spring that should normally help return the solenoid's contacts to their 'off' position that may be weakened.

Was the old fuel pump bad? It might be worth the cost to replace the ignition switch. The wires to the fuel pump would be a second guess if the old pump was bad and burnt the wires before the fuse went. When you eliminated the fuel pump you also eliminated the wires to the pump and it started. Then you replaced the pump, but not the wires. The ignition switch is the other end of the circuit.

SOURCE: where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord

Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus

try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

2000 GMC Yukon 1500xl 4wd. I replaced the starter relay and now the starter and flywheel are out of sync. The switch panel on dash is back on. How do I get them reset into sync?


the starter and flywheel cannot "unsync" unless you removed the starter and reinstalled it incorrectly! .. the starter pinion is moved "up or forward" on the starter shaft and engages the flywheel when the starter is "engaged".. the flywheel never moves from its factory installed position (unless something catastrophic happened).. the starter pinion always engages unless there is something wrong with the starter

1992 Fleetwood P30 motorhome I change the fuel pump it was working and then all of a sudden all my power to my dash lights went out I jumped solenoid and got power back to my dashboard now my fuel


You need an electrician. He will probably need a wiring diagram to figure out what circuit has the malfunction. Have you checked to make sure the fuel pump fuse has not blown?
By jumping the solenoid, do you mean you bypassed it? I don't even know what solenoid you are referring to.
The pump circuit, if like other GM vehicles of those years, probably has a fuel pump relay (under the hood) and a fuel pump fuse- probably a 15 amp blue fuse, could be under the hood or under the dash. If you check all fuses, then find the pump relay, now you can check there for power available to the relay. The pcm is what signals this relay on. Does your pcm have power? Does your check engine light come on when you turn the key to ON?

Were is a fuel pump relay switch located on a 2000 Oldsmobile intrigued


Hey James , It's in the under hood fuse box , F/PMP relay an there is a fuse F/PMP 15 amp. Underhood Accessory Wiring Junction Block
Right side of the engine compartment, mounted to the strut tower

The PCM controls the fuel pump relay by supplying switched ignition voltage to the fuel pump relay coil. When the ignition switch is first turned On, the PCM energizes the fuel pump relay. The relay contacts close applying power to the fuel pump. The fuel pump relay will remain On as long as the engine is running or cranking and the PCM is receiving reference pulses. If no reference pulses are present, the PCM de-energizes the fuel pump relay within 2 seconds. With the engine stopped, the fuel pump can be turned On with a scan tool.
If the PCM detects a problem on the relay control circuit, DTC P0230 will set. Use this table if DTC P0230 is not set and a problem exists with the fuel pump!

2005 GMC Envoy XL. Will not engage starter. Like something electrical. Turn key and nothing. Worked fine until now.


Could be the neutral safety switch if it won't crank in neutral or park, could also be the starter has failed.

My 97 geo prism starts when you put the car to ignite but after that it won't stay running what could it be


First turn of the key energize the car electrical circuits for some circuits radio ets. 2nd turn of the key energize the the starting cycle, when you turn the key to the third spring loaded start mode it completes the circuit to the starter solenoid which engages the starter and start the car, the spring in ignition return the key to ignition on.
Maybe you have a malfunction in the ignition on position. Dont have a large bunch of keys hanging in your ignition, it sings back and forth when the car is in the start mode and cause havoc to your ignition switch.
