Alternator or battery terminals. charge battery with jump cables for 10 mins then see if it starts.. also clean terminals very well and tighten.

Turns over but won't start

I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

2005 Acura RSX will not start up

sounds to me like a starter issue. when the starter click andd it doesnt come popping out , usually its bad and has seized. as for you problem with the lights , that sounds like corroded grounds not giving a good pathway for the electricity . of course when you accelerate the alternator gives more power making it bright also the vibration is moving the connection around.

Try following the positive battery cable from the battery to the starter solenoid (not sure if you have an inner fender-mounted solenoid or a starter-mounted one. Take one lead of a pair of jumper cables and connect one end to the solenoid terminal with the cable from the battery, and take the other end of that same jumper cable lead and momentarily connect it to the other large terminal on the starter solenoid. If the starter engages when you do this, replace the starter solenoid. If the engine doesn't try to crank when you do this, you probably have a bad starter. Good luck.

No voltage to fuel pump or eec relays 1988 e150 van 5.0 died while driving put new starter and solenoid in about two months ago any ideas

I'm not positive the wiring is the same for trucks and vans, but you should have a yellow wire for both relays that go to a fuseable link off the starter solenoid. The key switch powers the EEC relay on, and the computer grounds the fuel pump relay on.
You may want to check the fuseable links and power coming from the key switch.

I have a 2000 Grand Caravan that will ONLY start with a JUMP ........ the starter clicks and WILL start the VAN the battery is GOOD and new it was checked 2 times by 2 different places ..... the...

it sounds like you may have a bad starter solenoid and the extra voltage from the jumper vehicle is enough to complete the circuit through the solenoid to allow the starter to turn over.sometimes the solenoid contacts get very dirty and can`t complete the circuit on its own without a jump.i think these have a bosch starter system on them and you can replace the contacts only in the solenoid.

I Starting problem...

if you notice this van should have a statrer solenoid on the fender as well as on the starter, clean the body of the solenoid on the fender area and make sure that the ground cable is secure and tight do not wiggle which is just making it loose if it is so go under the vehicle and make sure that the cable is tight

make sure the cables from the battery to the starter are tight and try replaceing the starter solenoid. Follow the positive cable from the battery and it will go straight to the solenoid. Cheap stuff first.
