HELP, HELP Dead D90 in CT

Hello All,
Well I rove my 90 home, then went to restart it. Turn the key and the engine / starter will not crank, I have full power, good battery (even tried jumping it). Seems the starter does not want to kick? Is there an easy way to test? any other ideas as to why it won't crank?

The worst part is that I can not get the truck (97, auto) into neutral to move it, whether I turn the ignition, step on the break, etc.. It is blocking my garage and my new car is now blocked !!!

If anyone has any ideas, especially how to get the truck into neutral, I would really appreciate it.

Thanks,


Dead D90 in CT (Jan)

Try the ignition relay. In the fuse box. one on far right. Take one of your relays of and put it in the far right relay position and try cranking it again. I'd lay 10 to 1 thats it.

You say you can't get it into neutral? Sounds like your starter might be jammed into the flywheel possibly, happens from time to time when they get older. Take something heavy, bonk the side of the starter a few times, then try again.

hit the starter with a soft hammer while turning the ignition...the coals may be a wee bit resisting the turns...

still dead but more info found

Hello all,
Well after reading a thread here, someone had the same issue not getting it out of park due to a dead fuse, the fuse for the brake lights, sure enough the fuse is dead BUT when I change it, the new one pops as soon as I try the ignition...any ideas on what can be popping the fuse or how to bypass so I can get the truck in neutral??

Thanks,

Jan

Jan, maybe the brake switch is causing the fuse to blow, just a thought.

I know this may be an idiot statement, but to try and get it to get in neutral have you used a giant fuse (like larger amp), so it won't blow?

Switch is by the brake pedal. I'm not sure on a D90 but on a RR/DI there are two switches, one for the cruise control and one for the brake. BTW, are your brake lights working?

thanks to everyone, I had to disconnect the shift linkage to get it onto neutral, then the truck rolled. I think there is a short as fuse #17 keeps blowing, time for AAA to tow it to the shop.....

thanks again for all the advice.

I'm in the boat as you Jan. AAA took it to the dealer this afternoon. Nobody will be working till the 5th. I'm just glad that this did not happen on some remote off road adventure. Pulling the cotter pin and disconnecting the shifter is the only way to get into neutral. I'll let you know what they find.........
