    There is a power in the battery , the previous was too old. But now I have power in the battery the starter turns on but the engine do not start... It's like there is no fuel , but the fuel pump is working. Someone told me that the computer may block the starting because of the low battery and there was some way with the battery plus wire to connect and disconnect to reset the computer but i don't know how to do it. Any ideas ?!

    I had a similar problem where with a good battery, the car would turn over normally but would never start. It turned out to be the blue coolant temperature sender (for the ecu) located at the gearbox end of the engine just next to the outlet on the head. I replaced that and the thing started as normal.

Have you tested the battery for power drain. If not, this should be your first step to a solution. If there is any aftermarket audio equipment, radars, gps, etc. One may be pulling enough current to drain the battery. If you know how to test for this sort of thing great, if not take it to any local car audio store, car toys, best buy, circuit city, even auto zone and have them test for current drain. This is a time staking process. The negative terminal of the battery must be detached and in line with your multimeter. You must then wait for all of the cars computers, lights, etc. to turn off. If there is current drain, you should be able to go through the vehicle and unplug any aftermarket equipment one by one to see which is the source....also pulling fuses may help as well. (keep in mind that during testing, if any door is open, hood light switched on, you will not get an accurate reading.) I highly reccomend consulting with a professional.

Audi Q7 dies while driving

When motor will not turn over and you can hear the solenoid working and the battery is good check for dirty terminal at the positive lead.hey may look good but there will be a build up of lead sulphate ( Black crust) on the battery terminal and inside the lead terminal. Clean with sandpaper or file or proper post cleaner and try again . A simple check is to loosen the terminal and pressing down hard move the terminal back and forwards a few times to scratch the build up retighten and try starting

My 04 audi a4 not firing went out this eav it started but cut out straight away and now wont start at all their is a clicking noise comming from front car when turning key anyone any sugestions on what...

Usually the clicking noise is the starter solenoid not getting enough amps because the battery is shot.
Suggest jump start vehicle then drive it to Autozone. They will test it for free and even install the new battery for free.
They have one of the best battery warranties in the business. Be sure to keep your receipt paperwork in the glove box.

When i try to start my truck it clicks once and wont start.I,ve got a brand new battery,solenoid,and alternator.Please help me.

Try cleaning battery cables top and BOTTOM. Everyone neglects the bottom ends and they're the ones most exposed to grease & grime. Clean them good w/wire brush then reattach. If that doesn't solve your problem, then pull starter and have tested. Any good parts store can do it for you and FREE

My 2007 corolla won't start. When I turn the key in the ignition the starter makes a rapid clicking noise. I?ve tried putting the car in neutral and starting it that way, but had no luck. I?ve also tried...

1st check the main cable to the starter make sure it is clean and tight, disconnect battery first, after that there should be a small wire going to the starter jump that small connector to the main battery cable on the starter (IGNITION OFF) if it cranks you have a wiring or ignition switch problem if not Starter time just make sure you get a very good quality starter some cheap and even lifetime starters are so poorly made that even after you replace them you still have a problem only a bad noise coming from the new starter you just put in.
