1997 Cirrus Ignition System

New Asked – My ’97 will not start. There 3 occaisions where the engine after driving an hour or at highway cruise speeds. went immediately to zero.

It would not restart. I left the car and back in the morning. The car started the next morning. The third this happened, the car stayed

I have done some

1) the starting motor cranks

2) the car starts and runs very when I spray starting into the intake. It stops it runs out of ether.

3) there is no power to the fuel pump. I snake a 12 volt wire to the pump, the fuel pump fine. Then I attach a to the fuel pump connector, it reads zero voltage.

Connecting a 12 volt wire to the pump makes it run, but the car not start.

This makes me there was a heat related Either the engine computer or a began failing when it got and is now mortally ….

After the two failures, I connected an OBD reader to the connector on the car and it showed NO faults. I not tried again after the failure.

Your thoughts?

Bruce Kit – Hard to without setting codes. position sensors have very similar to yours, so would be a good place to one I replaced also set no codes.

New – OK. how do I test the crankshaft sensor to see if it’s bad? car doesn’t run now.)


Bruce Kit – I use a volt/ohm but some just change the if it can be found in your area

Mine had erratic hard problems that progressively progressing to no start.

I just it and its been trouble free for a year, which was an improvement to no hot every 3nd day!

New User Have been too busy to on the car. Am back on it now.

The is getting power from the I checked.

The signal across the sensor vary from 0.5 volt to 5 when cranking the engine the starter. NOT. The signal the sensor is 0.0 volts with the switch off.

When I the engine, the signal goes to 5 (steady).

Is that the typical mode?

Am going to replace the and see if that fixes the problem.


Bruce Kit – You are on the right Re: testing/replacing the sensor.

New User Please answer the questions I

Bruce Kit – Yes the voltage fluctuate as you indicated, not a steady 5

New User – The sensor while removing it. Had to pull the and bang it out from the inside. is replaced and car runs fine
