Check the fuse box for more blown fuses it is located under the spare compartment above the hood release. You simply pull off the compartment unit and the fuse box is inside. You should find your spare fuses and your fuse pull tool. To install the compartment unit again just set the bottom part on the lip and close it, you'll hear a metal click and you are good.

Why wont my car start


Possibly a battery cable terminal or the connection at the starter.
Sometimes a loose or faulty wire can barely work until a load is put on it then it just shuts down. Test power flow at starter before and after turning the key. Replace battery cable ends and if the problem persists, replace entire cable.

Engine will not start. Battery was dead so I put a battery charger on it. Now the lights, dash board lights, horn and power locks works but engine wont start


Hi Judy,

I need more info - does the engine make any sound when you try to start it - does it turn over or does nothing happen?

If there is a clunking sound from the bottom of the engine then it may be your starter motor is stuck. If this is the case then put the vehicle in gear (make sure you are on a flat/level road surface) and release the hand brake. Rock the car forwards and backwards from the front five or six times and then reapply the hand brake, and after putting it in neutral, try to start it again. If it starts then the starter motor 'Bendix' drive is getting worn or dirty and is in need of a clean or replacement.

If there isn't a clunking sound to start with then let me know more detail of what happens when your try to start the engine. Such as any sounds or clicks etc. coming from the car.

When the battery was connected in reverse some electrical components were damaged. A motor, a relay, headlights can work both ways but not printed circuits in electronics. You are lucky you did not toast your computer!!!!!!!

Truck won't start


click and no turn over is the starting system. battery, starter and solenoid, ignition switch. if batt is fully charged, check that cables are clean and tight. loose cables can start the vehicle sometimes and not others.
