You should have a heavy red wire going to the back of the alternator, it should have 12 volts, it will excite the alternator, thus allowing it to charge your battery. If the doesn't have 12 volt, trace the wire, I believe that it will end at the starter. If you have 12 volts at this wire, most likely you have a fusable link thats shorted out at the starter. Look for a wire at the starter that appears burnt, or wiggle the wires one at a time, you'll find on that feels like a plain rubberband, with no resistance while wiggling.

Car will not start


When it was transported (driven?) to miss. they could have gotten some bad ( water and/or dirt) in the gas.
Change the fuel filter.
Sometimes de-natured alcohol will absorb water.

Hope this helps.

Dont know which fuse operates fuel pump


) Unplug the main relay and then turn the key from off to ON(II).

2) Use a jumper wire or paperclip to jump terminal 1 to terminal 7 in the main relay plug. Does the fuel pump run?

3) Now use the jumper wire or paperclip to jump terminal 5 to terminal 7 in the main relay plug. Does the fuel pump run?

Car wont start have p16 10 code and red ligth key stay on


The most common cause of a non-starting car is the battery. It is either weak, (low voltage) dead, (zero voltage) or has bad connections. (corroded or loose) I will assume you have a fully charged battery with good connections. (both to battery and starter relay)
If you remove the starter switch lead (small wire) from the starter relay and apply +12v from the battery to its respective prong or lead on the relay, and your starter cranks, your starter switch is faulty. (not to be confused with your key switch). If you jump the two large wires together on the relay and it cranks, then the relay is faulty. If you jump the two large wires together and nothing happens, then starter is faulty, or wires to starter are loose or broken. Picture of starter switch prong on the relay is pictured. NOTE: sparks are to be expected, so don't be too scared.

fuel system is faulty. Check for a clogged fuel filter, or if your fuel pump don't run at all, replace the "fuel pump relay". Sometimes your fuel pump will run, but be too weak to hold pressure, which will let your car idle somewhat, but be too weak to run the engine at speed or under load.

If your car is getting fuel, then the igniton system is faulty. Things to check or replace in the order that I would check them are here: They are the coil, igniton module, cam and crankshaft sensors, map sensor. Your car may be out of time due to a broken timing belt/chain, or it may have been loose and jumped a few teeth on their cogs. Check engine timing and condition of belt. These are not all of the igniton components, but the most common items that go bad. The rest of the components and sensors shouldn't cause your car not to start, but affect driveabiliy.

In cold weather car cranks, but it does not have enough power or fuel to get it started. Have new battery. Have had to use starter fluid as well as a jump to get it started in this cold weather. What could...


a worn out starter could do it if the bushing in it are worn it would pull to much power from the battery and would not turn the moter over fast enough to pump enough gas to start the car if its carberated then it has a manual fuel pump the fuel pump wont pump enough gas if the moter is not turning over fast enough i would either rebuild the starter or replace it.

My crwn vic wont turn over sounds like wants to start but wont has half tank of gas,where is fuel filter,and fuel pump? my car is 1988.


If it doesn't turn over it may be your starter going. or a weak battery. start with that first, insufficient fuel pressure won't prevent you car from cranking, but weak battery or bad starter will. If you can jump it and it starts its probably the battery if it doesn't crank then its probably the starter. Good luck

Replaced battery and alternater tested fine but car will not start


It is very possible that you need a new starter. If the engine wont even turn over like its trying to start then its the started. If the engine is trying to start but wont then its probably the fuel pump.
