It is a '94 geo prizm stick shift with 94 corolla parts. It will crank but won't fire. How do I fix it
car just quit. No noises. Wasn't running differently. Code 15
My 94 prizim has an external RFID device you place in proximity to the ignitation and activate prior to turning the iginition key to start the engine.

I suspect ther is a ANDTI THEFT SYSTEM MALFUNCTION. Is there a way to bypass the anti theft system?
Uped to 30 amp fuse works a while then blows. Same problem again. Mechanic thinks might be in the compressor. Do I need to replace it?
This model has a small black box (like a garage door opener) that you push a button on and then turn the ignition key to start the engine. I don't think the key is a special resistor type key. The key looks aftermarket and has the printing "Ilco USA X217 and TR47"

It is a stick shift and the clutch must also be 100% depressed (to the floor) for the engine to turn over.

Problem: the car refuses to turn over and start. Battery charged, lights and radio work etc. I have disconected the battery hoping for a reset but all I acomlished was haveing to reset my radio buttons. After an hour or so it restarted and I got it home. Now it refuses to start again.
when hit button nothing no water goes up to window no sound heard
I killed my battery and thought it was bad so I put in a new battery. This battery was too large for the car and I put it in backwards which blew the 100 amp fuse. However, the car will still not start. There is not spark getting to the spark plugs. The ignition fuse is fine. I think I blew something else, perhaps in the distributor. It cranks but does not run. What do you think I blew and how can I fix this. Please tell me what the problem is and how I can fix it.

I have a 1995 Geo Prizm 1.6. Yesterday while running some errands the car chugged and acted like it was running out of gas then it died and would not start again. Today I changed the PCV Valve and got it to start. It idles just fine but when I try to give it gas it bogs down and eventually dies. After this happens, when I try to start it, it takes a while but will start and idle just fine. If I feather the gas I can tach it out, but if I try to lets say take off normally, it will bog down and idle rough before shutting down alltogether. I've heard the TPS could be at fault, or the fuel filter, or the fuel pump. I've also been told that the ignition coil could be my problem. I just need some more input, any would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

When the car is cold it starts fine, but when the engine warms it takes a bit to start. There is no check engine light while the car is idling.
Inside the car my temperature gage seems to go from cool to middle of hot and stay in middle of gage. I see no water in thing in front. How can I reset codes. To figure out what's wrong.
