    one of the sensors that tell the ecu the door is open is bad you should be able to remove them individually and test them with an ohm meter if your meter has a needle it should move all the way to the right or stay left and a digital one will read 0 or 1 when you push the button in with your finger if there is any reading in between the sensor is bad you may be able to spray some brake clean in it to fix it but you will probably have to replace it

Battery dead - car will not start or be jumped started


Change the battery. Newer batteries sometimes go all at once, and are so dead even a jump start won't work. It has happened to me twice. Once you put in the new battery check the alt output with a volt meter should read about 14.5 volts at the battery. If it does problem solved just reset the clock, radio etc.

My interior lights turn on everything works its just my engine wont turn over it sounds like a clicking noise


Battery is weak or bad. The clicking noise is the starter solenoid and is a result of...not enough power in the battery.

I used my f 150 to jump and it died


possibly your relay got fried or maybe you did the wrong tapping on your battery lead or you probably damaged your alternator IC regulator/ when you jump up another car make sure to do the right connection on your positive and negative lead battery and make sure your car is running to give more power to your battery.

Chevy Cobalt - Battery saver light is on and the car won't start.


A couple days ago, my ignition went out on my car, (or so I thought), because my key wouldnt come out, and it would only turn back half way. Luckily, I had a spare key made to my car so i would use that to get in my car after I manually locked it. And it was good for a few days. Then one morning when I went to get into my car for work, it wouldnt start. A couple lights came on my dash that read "battery saver mode" and "engine power reduced". Then the security light came on (a little lock with a car picture flashed). And it started clicking and whining. My next thought was WTF?! So I woke my boyfriend up, we charged the car (battery is in the trunk if u didnt know) And it kinda started. The car was jumping all over and puttin and spuddering. We both knew their had to be way for the key to come out of the car, it was recognizing it was in park, and i would move the steering wheel and nothing. Well, under the steering wheel, theres a little cover, take that off, and put your finger up in that hole, you`ll feel a button, push that and your key will come right now. I started my car after that, and everything was normal!!! It still gets stuck in the ignition, but this is my temp. fix untill i get the money to get a new ignition =)

98 Rav4 won't start. Problem is intermitant. Car


Clean your battery cable connections and your battery posts with some emery cloth. Make sure the battery clamps are tightly secured to the battery and that the other end of each battery cable is securely fastened. Once you have it started drive it to any auto parts store to have the battery and the charging system tested. You may find that you need a new battery.

Battery saver relay is on and do not start


One it could be the battery but if your radio and stuff works then it is not the case, the clicking is your starter trying to turn over, so that could be it as well.

I have a 2001 GMC Yukon. It was running fine until two days ago. I went to start it on Saturday and it would only make a clicking noise. I was able to start it with jumper cables. I drove for an hour...


i had the same exact problem with my chevy s-10, but once i replaced the battery it ran fine no problem, u may have fried some circuits and relays while jumping the car, and alot of times that clicking noise is your relay burning out, did your car start doing weird things too? like ejecting cd's, flashing lights really fast and weird noises?
