sounds like it. but you could always check the basics before spending a bunch. Check your: battery cables, no corosion or loose fitting. make sure your battery is good and full, pop the caps on the top of the battery and pour in some distilled water if the fluid is not 1/4 of an inch from the top. check all fuses ect...

SOURCE: rover 25 wont start with key, makes fast clicking

could be alternator not charging, put another good battery on and see what happens ,if it starts then check charge with a induction amp meter ,as these vehicles use intelegent charging system so disconnecting the battery with engine running to see if keeps running so you know alternator is ok doesnt work .if warning light goes out then renew the battery but if engine management light on then it could be a alternator fault or the ECU playing up ,and to check this out you wwill need a scope to read the fluctuations on teh sensor wire to the ECU and read the resistance to check for a fault as these vehicles use encrypted software to make it a dealer only job but it can be checked without it .

Check out how tight are the battery terminals. If you can move either of them then this is too slack. Next check the earth strap from the engine back to the car body. Again this should be good and tight with bright metal to metal contact. If everything is OK then check the voltage of the battery it should be about 12.5 volts. If 12.1 volts the battery is severely discharged. If about 10.4 volts then your battery has lost a cell and you will need to change your battery. If battery is OK then check out your starter motor and the connections to it. Initially give the motor body a clout with a length of stout timber when trying to turn the engine over. If the starter motor kicks into life and turns the engine over then it is likely that the starter motor carbon brushes need replacing.

SOURCE: why wont it start

Has the charging system (Alternator) been tested for proper output? Is the battery ok, have it tested. Autozone (and others) do this test for free as well as checking the Alternator output, it is one of the two causing the problem I'm sure. If the charging system is ok the voltage measured at the battery at about 1000 RPM should be at least 13.4 volts D.C.

How do I disconnect the alarm on a rover 25

now some rovers will disconnect the alarm with a fuse under the bonnet in the box the top right one if i remember correctly but this was a earlier model that i had a 200 .Now on the rover what happens is if you leave the key in and the door open the alarm locks on ,this is easy enough to turn off if you have the remote but if you do not have a remote?? .Earlier ones you could also bridge a transistor in the computer and this by-passed the alarm but the later ones iam not so sure about ,on a car this age their should be plenty in the scrappers so find one with the keys and remote and remove the whole lot ,computer/key/transponder and change it all over .Or see if the original dealer who will no doubt have another make of vehicle franchise but still have the software to programme it all up for you and supply some new remotes for toy and programme them in .

Changed transmission fluid on crv now car wont start

might be that you accidentally disconnected the crank sensor close to the transmission, this gives a no start condition without a check engine light on most cars...

Ok 03 Yukon, at first not running but after being towed home it hit a bump and all the lights came on. Took it off the wrecker it started right up, but nothing electrical in cab works, and now it won'

It might possibly be the ignition switch, or the linkage to it.

They reason I suspect this is your statement, "I bumped the key forward and it will engage the starter but still wont shut off"

The part where you insert the key is really a "cylinder lock", that then transfers the turning motion to the actual "ignition switch"

My wife had a Pontiac (also a GM product) that the cylinder lock had a linkage that went to the ignition switch (similar to a sliding electric switch, with the 4 positions, ACC, OFF, RUN, START), which was bolted on further down the steering column, underneath the plastic covering on the column.

Another person here had a similar problem, and after suggesting this, he wrote back that he removed his steering column cover and found a screw opposite the cylinder lock that had loosened and fallen out.

So you could try removing the steering column cover and see if all is ok.

Also, when you have it opened up, observe the action as you turn the key, as the problem could be the cylinder lock itself.

Immobiliser fob battery dead? Battery flat? Corroded battery or earth terminals? Dead starter motor or relay? Engine seized (will it bump start if manual?)?

You need to describe what happens when you turn the key.

My rover 25 wont turn over, when i turn the key theres nothing but the car will bump start

When you say Bump start, are you talking about push starting your truck?That being the case, I would look at your fuses first, to see if any of them are blown. If you find any blown, just replace them, and try to start it again. Your owners manual should have the location of all your fuses, and what they do. Any that are labeled ignition (ign) would be a culprit if you find it's blown. If you don't find a blown fuse, you may be looking at a solanoid, or starter. Let me know what you find.Dennis

Wont start funny clicking sound when i turn the key ???


The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

Good Luck!!

It wont start.

If the linstrument or parking lights don't dim slightly as you turn the key in the ignition switch there is a high probability that the problem is with the ignition switch electrical contacts or the related wiriing, not the key. If the problem was the key it would not rotate, just as a padlock or door lock would not rotate. Also check the ignition coil to make certain the wiring is iintact and that the coil is producing a spark to the spark plugs. Be careful not to get shocked by the high voltage output of the coil.
