Thought it was the battery - nope that wasn't it. Jumped it with my SUV
The problem started after she got gas. Maybe bad gas. So I tried a gas line cleaner. Then I tried a fuel injection cleaner. Held the gas pedal too the floor and pumped it. No gas smell at all. I'm thinking it might be the fuel pump. What do you think?
Hi so i am presumming its turning over if this is the case then you need to find out where to look so first see if you have a spark at the plugs and check if you are getting fuel to the injectors by slacking off your main feed pipe to the injectors rail when you have done this just drop me a line and lets see if we can get you going if you seem certain it is fuel take the main fuel line off completly and collect some of the fuel in a container see if there is any water in it or has your better have put diesel in it instead of petrol won,t be the first time yates210456

Most likely you have a bad battery. The second option is that you have a faulty wiring and there is a constant load that takes a lot of power, but it does not make a short circuit. Check the electrical relays, maybe it's in them.
It could be a bad starter or your battery does not have sufficient power. Your problem is most likely a bad starter, battery, or alternator. The first thing I would do is have a friend try to jump start your car. Hopefully it will start once the battery is charged. Autozone can check your battery and alternator for free. If this does not help, you may have to have your car towed to a mechanic.
I had this same problem my 1996 discovery . oddly enough lights came on bright etc i thought ok all electrical is good .. Nope , i jumped a pair of battery cables from the negative battery post to the bracket where alternator bolts on to a ground pretty much .. This problem went away completely.. So it was just a current issue wasnt getting enough to light those spark plugs my guess or the computer was doing something else whne it diditn see all the current it needed .. i have no idea but it fixed it
I just went thru same thing with my 2003 f-350 diesel. I hooked up my horse Trailor and drove to Von's parked went in came back out and truck was dead. I tried to jump it didn't work. Then over next two hours two tow truck Drivers hooked up to both batteries full power charge direct to my truck and would not start. End story required two new batteries alternator and cilanoid discussed above. In other post. Also contributing to the cause was really badly coroded cables they looked good at the connection point but wher discovered to be coroded inside the tubing just above the end connections so bow it has all been replaced and I have had no trouble since. Hope this helps. Tanya
guess it's been awhile. did you find the problem? Here's a testimonial: my son's 96 chrysler cirrus started needing a boost often to start, so i checked his alternator and it was working good. He only had the car a little while, so i told him to try our other battery cause i thought the one in it might be about ending its life, maybe a bad cell. nope it seems the positive connector on the battery was loose. thats all it took to cause the alternator not to charge the battery sufficiently.. On electrical stuff always check the tightness of the connections.
Sounds like a fuel filter that gets clogged with dirt and then gets unclogged when you put the fuel treatment in your gas tank. Love your car it needs a little TLC. Replace the fuel filter and make sure all fuel line connections are tight.
