With the key in the run position, if you use a tool or wire and cross both terminals are the starter, does it crank and start?

Do you have voltmeter or test light, auto or manual trans?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Was running sluggish

So you could keep it running, it just ran bad, correct?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
No i was by myself
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Everything cum on but want start

I am confused, you said:

  • I jumped it n it startes but killed
  • Was running sluggish
  • Everything cum on but want start

When you jumped the starter did the engine start and remain running or did it not start, or did it start, run rough and die?

Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Just tried again to start it n press the gas, it want start running but it started fa a min when he press the gas it didnt even have no feel nuthing killed

Okay, so you have 2 issues. Let's diagnose the original concern first, it will not crank with the key.

Use this diagram https://www.dropbox.com/s/6wgvslz276lzar8/97vette.pdf?dl=0 Check these things to see what is missing. To start with the key you need these:

  1. Ignition switch needs to power the crank fuse.
  2. Crank fuse needs to send power to and through the park neutral or clutch switch.
  3. Theft relay needs 2 power pins and one ground pin to energize.
  4. Theft relay then sends power to the starter motor solenoid.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
