Question about 1999 Daewoo Lanos

1 Answer

Lanos will not turn over

The car will not turn over, will not jump start and will not start using jump leads.
There seem to be no movement of the starter motor, like the immobiliser is stuck on, but I can't see how to reset it. I've taken the battery lead off in an effort to reset the immobiliser, but no luck.

Any help would be useful.

Thanks Neil

Do you have a clicker for the locks/alarm? try resetting the alarm from there, also disconnecting the battery (i think you said you tried this) temporarily almost always resets anti theft systems.... another thing to try is leave the car alone for at least 15 mins, this allows the short term system to reset itself which might help. when all else fails call the dealer in the morning :) hope this helps

What can cause my temp & fuel gauge to jump around, and sometimes while this happens the engine cuts out , but when the break pedal is touched the problem goes away. How can I fix this


Hello Cobus
You have an Intermittent connection or short somewhere in the wiring. There is lots of wiring harness running around the car.

That can be mighty hard to locate... even for a qualified auto electrician. It's just so time consuming.

You have to narrow down the cause of what is mechanically setting it off. Then you may be close.
Depending on where it's most sensitive to movement
Then you might start to remove panels etc.

It would obviously be cheeper if you do all the ground work.

Have you had any accidents or panels removed or parts replaced or corrosion points? Only you know your car's history

Using the information you have provided so far would help in the diagnosis.
For example
The engine cuts... so it loses power to the Ignition or spark generation circuit. (I don't know your car model specifics)

You can attach a wire to the battery with a fuse or circuit breaker in series (for safety) and use it to supply missing power when the problem presents itself.
A simple 12v test lite with a sharp needle tip can also be used to trace for 12v when power goes missing.

There are specialised probes worth $200-300 dollars that will help but there are cheaper tools also.

Most Importantly....It's the Long Leads which connect to the Battery that make these tools work so well

Tip

Jump-start Jaguar X-type? it's more complicated than you think.


Jump Start of Vehicle Battery


IF THE BATTERY YOU ARE USING TO JUMP-START THE VEHICLE HAS RECENTLY BEEN CHARGED IT MAY STILL BE GASSING, COVER THE VENT PLUGS OR COVERS WITH A DAMP CLOTH TO REDUCE THE RISK OF EXPLOSION SHOULD ARCING OCCUR WHEN CONNECTING THE JUMP LEADS.

Turn off all electrical ancillary circuits such as radio, lights, indicators etc. If the reason for a flat battery is unknown the condition may be as a result of an electrical short circuit, so care must be taken during the Jump-start process and subsequent to connection to ascertain if this is the case. A short circuit or un-isolated ancillary load can cause arcing when the jump leads are connected, a small 'crackle' is normal but any spark or flash is an indication of a problem that should be rectified before attempting to Jump-Start the vehicle.

Jaguar do not recommended that the vehicle is jump started, and If at all possible it is preferable to replace the flat battery with a suitable fully charged unit rather than jump-start the car. However if it is done it should be carried out by suitably qualified personel. Garage services and services like AA and RAC homestart should be used whenever possible.

Obviously there are occasions when carrying out this proceedure yourself is the only practical way proceed.

If there is no option but to jump-start the discharged battery should be removed and recharged immediately after jump starting to avoid permanent damage.

High quality, heavy duty Jump leads must be used as the current consumption during starting is very high, and a voltage loss will be
exhibited though the jump leads, increasing current requirement.

Make sure that the Jump Start battery is of the same voltage as the vehicle, and suitable to provide the required starting current.

MAKE SURE THAT THE ENDS OF THE JUMP LEADS DO NOT TOUCH EACH OTHER OR GROUND AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY AT ANY TIME WHILE THE LEADS ARE ATTACHED TO THE BATTERY. ARCING AND VERY RAPID DISCHARGE CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO EXPLODE.

Connect the jump leads in the following sequence.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Jump Start battery positive terminal.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Vehicle battery positive terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to Jump Start battery negative terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to a suitable vehicle ground point at least, 300 mm (12 in) from the battery terminal e.g. engine lifting bracket, do not do not connect directly to the vehicle battery terminal.

Start the vehicle and rev to 2000 rpm, then allow tickover for 5-10 minutes.

Do not attempt continued repeated starting of the vehicle, this will cause heat build up at the terminals and though the jump leads degrading the leads performance and adding to voltage loss.

Allow 3-4 minutes recovery time for the leads and Jump Start battery between attempts to start.

Before disconnecting the jump leads, switch on the heated rear screen, to reduce the alternator voltage peak when the leads are removed, as this can damage electronic equipment.

Disconnect the jump leads in the reverse order to the connecting sequence taking great care not to short the ends of the leads.

Do not rely on the alternator to restore a discharged battery.
Ensure that the battery is recharged or replaced with a fully recharged unit
as soon as possible.

Following Jump-starting of a compleately discharged battery, you may need to carry out a Green ECM drive Cycle, this will allow the powertrain control module to 're-learn' idle values, and most likely need to re-enter your radio code, details of these can be found at. http://www.bluejag.co.uk

My opel corsa 99 cut out today and now it wont even turn over jst a little click when the key is turned the battery seems fine lights and radio come on when the ignition is on but if i push start it will...


Hi just because the lights work does not always mean the battery is ok. It takes a lot more power to crank the starter.
Generally that clicking will be either the battery or the starter motor. I would suggest if you can try jump leads and if it starts problem is battery, If not problem is most likely starter motor. For a possible third thing to check Make sure the battery leads are tight.
Cheers Mike;-)

When i turn the key to turn on car all i hear is clicking


your battery doesn't seem to have enough voltage to turn your engine over. get a jump and take it in to an autoparts store to have your battery and alternator checked out.

I have a homelite 720 generator but cant fingd the instruction manual and i need to know if the charger leads only charge a battery or can be used as jump leads i know this might sound stupid but i wo


I can't find any reference to a Homelite model 720 generator but most battery charging systems do not supply enough amps to run a car starter. Battery chargers usually work in the two (trickle) to ten amp range. Car starters need way more amps to have enough power to turn an engine over, depending on the size and number of cylinders in the motor. Some chargers have a switch with a 60 amp 'start' position to help the battery turn the motor over, but without that there is little chance the charger side of your generator will supply enough amps to help your battery.

The starter doesn't want to turn over on first attempt it seems to be dragging


Try it with jump leads from another car, it sounds like the battery amps are low.

If the same while attached to another car then sounds like a lazy starter motor

Car just clicks when tryingto start battery is good. Will not jump with another car


YOU HAVE A PROBLEM LIKE A LOT OF OTHERS BUT ITS EITHER,
the battery term on the = or+ on battery lead OR where the Earth lead on battery is fitted ORthe feed (+)on starter motor connection or the solinoid on starter,or starter jamed or engine siezed.
SO first jump start as +on battery on both cars and them (black lead)to a good earth on engine not on to battery on your engine,try to start if not fot red lead to starter motor feed and it should spin if not then replace the starter but first just turn engine over slightly by bottom pully,if it dosent turn then engine is no good.

Daewoo Lanos 2001 SE starts, runs briefly, misfires & stops


replace your intake air box filter (remember check to see what direction it faces) an arrow (indicating air flow direction) on the air filter should face the engine intake. next check your wide open throttle switch (located in the intake tube) for smooth flap movement or, a broken wire.

VW POLO 1.9CL Diesel 1997 wont start


hi from uk check the main lead from battery+positive to the starters solenoid is secure ? also there is a thin wire that also connects to solenoid on a terminal of its own this is the solenoid energizing wire that works starter when key start position is selected if all above is ok? then use a jump lead and connect one end to battery negative post then the other end of lead to a suitable earth point on engine ? then try starting? if it works/starts ? you have a bad earth connection to engine from battery negative lead check the earth lead connection at point on engine is clean/secure ? it usually is secured by bolt at point where engine and transmission connect ? hope this helps?
