Customer Question
2007 Matrix will not...

2007 Matrix will not crank. Battery is fine, fuses seem fine, security system has been reset.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuel supply? And are all the spark plugs working?

Probably 1.5 gal of fuel in tank. Should I add more? Spark plugs have been fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Matrix yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, i've worked on it, replaced the battery and a 100 amp fuse.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Has 107k miles and has worked fine until i replaced a low voltage battery and accidentally blew the 100 amp fuse which i've replaced.

ok try this reset

MASTER RESET

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

do not worry no spark will happen since we took power source out of the loop by taking both cables off, by touching them we are taking all residual power off the modules to reset them as if we using factory scanner .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start
