    same problem this morning. started once to move it, then tried a second time, and it started to crank, then nothing. no lights, or anything. One thing I have noticed lately is that the clock keep resetting to 12:00 every time I start the van. Is that a clue?

Try unplugging the battery terminals and leave them off for 10 mins. if it starts afetr that then you may be looking at an antitheft issue. if not, check the fuse box for any blown fuse.

First make sure the battery is fully charged. Then check for clean battery post connections. Then check all the main fuses located in the plastic box under the hood close to the battery on top of the inner fender. You should have all dash lights if everything check out to this point and it should turn over with the key.

Tip

I removed the battery and now the car won't start


'I disconnected the car battery/changed the car battery and now my car won't start'

Another common question on Fixya.
You've done nothing wrong. It's simply that the immobiliser doesn't recognise the key.

Put the key into the ignition. Turn the ignition on. Press the LOCK button twice on your remote. Wait 1 minute.

Turn the ignition off and press the UNLOCK button on the remote a couple of times. This will disarm the immobiliser.

The key should be recognised and your vehicle will start.

I have a 2010 Hyundai Veracruz had dead battery was dead, tried to jump start, no luck battery is fully recharged. Turning on key all dash lights and gauges works but nothing when key is turned on. N


If you are sure the battery is charged and nothing happens when you turn the key you have a poor wiring connection somewhere or possibly an poor connection internal to the battery. First, turn on the headlights, then try to start the car. If the headlights go dim when you do that, you have a bad connection. If they stay bright, you are not completing the starting circuit. The most likely cause is a bad battery post connection. Remove the terminals and clean them to shiny metal then replace and try again. If that does not work try it again with a new battery.

Possible solution - This happened to me and my battery was dead in my key fob and also I needed an ignition switch because a piece on it was broken which therefore wouldn't turn to start the engine.

Battery is new, engine won't turn over.


The voltmeter should only go as high as 14-15 volts when the engine is running. I would check for a poor connection between the battery and starter.

My 2005 caravan won't start. When I turn the key I hear a clicking sound but it doesn't start. It worked fine earliar today.The battery is fine for now.


Possible causes are: 1. Loose or corroded battery cables. 2. Bad starter 3. Dead battery. Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is holding the key in the start position. If it starts then replace the starter. Thanks
