    do you hear a click from under the hood when you turn the ignition key?

    If you do not, the starter solenoid is not getting voltage. The starter solenoid is just a relay that applies high current 12 volts to the starter motor.


    Let me know and we can figure it out

CHECK BATTERY CONNECTIONS, STARTER CONNECTIONS, WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN IT DOESN'T START, TO GET IT GOING AGAIN, DO YOU GET A JUMP START IF SO CHECK CONNECTIONS.

My 1999 Kia Sportage won't start. I put a new fuel pump in replaced the car battery . Need help please...


Im dealing with a similar situation. But have found that I have no spark. By opening the end of the air intake and giving a little squirt of starter fluid and no start. Opened access to FP and pulled a hose. No fuel. So no fuel no spark. reading lots and lots of forums I have come to the conclusion it is either the Cam or the Crank sensor. The crank sensor is easier to get to and cheaper. I am going to check that first.

My 2002 nissan sentra will crank but won't start. i've replace the ecm/ecu, the cam/crank sensor or position, checked the fuel pump/pressure, and it still is doing the same thing. sometimes it


I assume you checked the fuel pressure and it is normal.
Are the spark plugs getting spark when it fails to start ?
Are you getting injector pulse from the computer ?
Any trouble codes stored in the computer ?

Just finished driving car, tried to start it back up and nothing happens. Radio works fine, lights come up but car won't start.


if starter is not engaging or clicks then have battery load tested. if battery checks good then test the voltage draw on the starter,may be dragging when it gets hot.

Test at the spark plug if you are getting current there with a cheap spark plug tester, if not, it could be the spark box. ( it used to be an ignition coil on older cars ) double check the computer for codes which may lead to a cam sensor not giving the PCM information.
