Question about 1993 Saab 9000 Hatchback

1 Answer

Car Won't Start

I went into the store for five minutes. When I came out the car sounded like the battery was wearing down. I let it sit a few minutes and when I turned the key again there was no sound whatsoever. A few hours later it started. The next day it started right up. A few hours later I turned the key and no sound again. I had the battery tested and it was shot. I had a new one installed and even though the lights, radio etc worked, the car was dead and did not make a sound. What could the problem be?

If the car is dead, it should not make a sound, this is normal for dead things. Get a live one.

My 2003 jeep grand cherokee will start fine after it sits overnight or for a hour or so but won t start if i go to the store and get in it five minutes later. After 1 hour it cranks right up


Sounds like a fuel mixture issue, being a 2003 must be EFI, could be faulty mass air flow sensor, fuel mixtures being to rich when engine is at operating temp.

You appear to have soaked the abs system sensors in the wheels and shorted them out...A short can take a battery to zero in no time...Check out the car for shorts!

2006 chevy colorado out of the blue will not start. just makes clicking sound. Started it drove out of garage shut it off. Went back out 5 minutes later won't start. Clock even reset.


Sounds like a bad battery. A number of chain auto parts stores will check it and your charging system free. Before that, if your battery has removable caps, check the water level, if it's down, fill to the bottom of the fill rings and charge the battery, if you have a battery hydrometer, all the cells should have about the same charge level, if one or more show a lot lower than the others, battery is probably bad. Hope this helps.

Car won't start HELP PLEASE


Hello...

I would start, since it is cold outside by checking to make sure the battery is in good shape. If it is not, it will run but when the cold comes it will eventually not turn over. Note: Turning on the lights to see if they are bright is not a good check for the batteries abilty to crank the car. If you have a Checker or Autozone or other auto parts store see if they can test your battery for you.

With the sudden stop starting I would also suspect possibly the fuel pump or the pump relay.

Good Luck...

CAR JUST SHUT OFF !!!!


Check the connections at your battery. If they are OK, suspect your alternator.

If you live fairly close to a good parts store, (call them first and see if they will test your battery and alternator), have someone jump your car.

Note: Don't just start the car. Let your friend have his/her car sit running for at least a half an hour, If the car runs good after this, you can really suspect that the alternator is bad. Drive it to the store and have them do the test.

Remember to check your connections first because if you have a lot of corrosion on the terminal, a good alternator may not be able to charge your battery.

Hope this helps.
