Anytime you disconnect and reconnect your battery, the factory alarm will arm upon reconnection and the truck will not start. You have to close your doors, then manually lock and unlock the door with your key. This should turn off the security system and you should be able to start the truck.

1999 plymounth voyager wont crank an wont start


well first thing to check is the battery working. turn the headlights on. do they light up bright. dim would me you need to charge it or replace it. if that's not the issue the starter will go and that makes the engine turn over when you use the key. the igniton or shifter could be another problem try starting it in neutral if you suspect the shifter cable. my guess is the battery. or the connection for the cables to the battery. but need to check and test stuff

Had to replace fuse inline alternator how can I transfer the inline fuse to a different wire


the cable /fuse to alternator has nothing to do with the start and run function if the battery is charged up and in good condition ,sounds like the main battery cables have a bad contact/connection or battery is shot<follow battery cables and remove all points of connection in engine bay area clean contacts with sandpaper and resecure all connections 1 AT A TIME! to make sure none are swapped around by mistake ) on both earth cable/negative and the positive/power cables,make sure terminals on battery are clean and tight , try boosting/jump starting your battery with jumper cables connected from another cars battery positive to positive .........negative to negative and see if it starts ,i doubt the problem of starting up is the alternator unless battery is flat and not being charged by alternator ,by jump starting with another baterry will give you the answer once all baterry cables and connections are clean and secure

You've got a good start measuring the voltage at the battery. Looks like you've got a low voltage problem. Common on the GM side post batteries is battery acid leaking at the positive battery cable post on the battery. I would recommend removing and checking the cables/posts on the battery. If everything is clean, reassemble the battery cables to the battery. If there is excessive wetness or corrosion on EITHER of the cables/posts, you should replace the battery first, and clean the cables. A leaking battery is going to give you more trouble down the road if you just clean it. If the battery connections on the existing battery are clean, charge the battery with a battery charger, or jump start the car. Use your trusty meter and measure voltage at the battery with the engine running. (Also do this if you replace the battery for leaks). You should read in the neighborhood of 13.5 - 14.0 volts if your charging system is working correctly. If you are reading in the low 12 volt range with the engine running, something is wrong with your charging system, and most likely putting a strain on the battery, preventing it from receiving the charge it needs. If your existing battery is not leaking, cables are clean and tight, jump starts okay, reads 13.5-14ish volts with the engine running, but refuses to crank the engine over after the engine runs for about 15-20 minutes, it's time for a new battery.

Electronic Issues After changing Battery cable terminals.


SOunds like they might be tight or need cleaning. I always take a battery brush to yerminals whenever i remove them they should be shiny and silver inside to get good contact. they should not be able to be wiggled at all. if this does not solve the problem check your ground. the negative cable should go to the body or frame. find this and clean the connection and make sure its tight. This is all assuming you have a good charge on a good battery

My 2000 lesabre will start sometimes and wont sometimes. for the last wk it wont start. it has power lights work everything just wont crank whats wrong with it. jf1


Hello: Make sure the battery cables are clean No corrosion, and tight. If the security light is not flashing when you try to start it, the have a helper hold the ignition switch in the start position and you go under the car and hit the starter (not to hard) near the end that goes into the engine, If it starts then you need a starter. If the security light flashes while trying to start you have a pass key problem

A bell keeps ringing and a light flashes


It is your battery it is low or the battery terminals need cleaning disconnect the bettery cables and take a piece of sandpaper and sand the battery post until it is clean and do the same at the cable end and connect them back up if it still wont start jump it and then disconnect the positive battery cable if the engine dies when you disconnect the cable then you have a bad alternator

Wont start


Possible poor battery cable or cable connection. Remove the cable terminals from the battery, always remove ground or negative first! Use a small brass brush to clean the terminals also clean the connections too. Next follow the ground cable, to where it mounts to the body or engine. Remove this connection and clean both surfaces of cable and mounting point; re-install with proper torque on bolt. Be certain to check the cables for any short bends, thses can cause the inner cable to break and have poor connections Look for a gronding strap that runs from the firewall to engine, insure its clean with good connections. Then check the connections at the alternator, be certain that these too are clean and tight. After which reconnect cables to battery positive first ground last. Recharge the battery if she works great, you found the problem. If you still have issues it would appear your battery has or is loosing a cell and may need replace. This can be checked at an autoparts store. Lastly may be issues with charging system, alternator?

I hope this may have assited you,
Tom

Will not start. makes a very fast clicking noise and all the lights on the control panel flash very quickly ?


Sounds like a bad low tension connection. Check to make sure battery leads are clean and secure on battery. Check same at the starter motor and body earth. With this done, try starting ( with jump if necessary) . If still no joy, remove the starter motor, clean and or replace copper contacts in the solenoid .

Engine wont turn over


Check fusible links and the battery for damage.

Too many variables and more information needed. Do your lights come on but dim when you turn the key? That could indicate a dead battery. If it tries to crank but clicks it could be a starter or solenoid proble. Chect the battery cables to make sure they are secure and clean. Remove the cables and use a battery terminal cleaner brush (wear goggles) and make sure the connection is secure. Otherwise there could be engine problems or other electrical problems.

Car want start factor security light flashing and car want start battery went dead and wont start since tried to jump start and everything won work


The factory security light will remain on - this is a standard feature indicating the car is dead.
First, unplug the hazard fuze in the engine bay (this will reset the ecu and remove the flashing)

Next, replace the battery with a new one (or one with proper charge) - keep in mind a small battery will not do anything for these cars, the engines require a lot to push them over (it isnt a honda)
*Make sure to clean the positive and negative battery cables from acid

Then just start it up :)
