Lets start with simple stuff have you checked the water in the battery?
is the battery more than two years old ?
is the battery still holding charge such as overnight ?

with the information you have supplied in your question then are the first three things i would consider after these the next thing would be is there a boot / bonnet light that might be on even though they are closed or radio left on overnight after these options the next on the hit list is the alternator charging the battery properly an auto electrician rarely charges for a battery test pop in to one before the car lets you down completely hope this is some help welcome to ask more glenn............

Suzuki wagon r+gl check engine light keeps flashing and wont start after battery change


the engine (there are more than one engine)
has a distributor.
"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

I have a 96 cavalier.it wouldnt start by using the ignition key,so i shorted the solenoid and it started...got home and it still wouldnt start,so i did the same thing and it started,then all the warning...


it can be the ignition switch or the neutral safety switch. put the transmission in neutral to see if it will start, if it does then the neutral safety switch is bad. if not then check your ignition switch

Car suddenly wont start radio,wipers,gauges wont work


Very possible you may have a faulty voltage regulator. I would have it tested which many places do for free.

Electrical problems


Sound like the car is not recharging the battery as you drive. Take it to a different shop and ask them to test the alternator and entire charging system as well as the battery.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire wont turn over


ok i had kinda the same problem. if your father or bf is decent with mechanics ask him to check any see if there is any spark if not tell him to check the cranksensor to c if there is an current going to it, also when u go to start the car is there a (theft system light that comes on in the dash and flashes if so, turn the key fully as if you were going to start the car but dont crank it and leave it be for about 15-20mins or until the light stops flashing. then turn the key off and try start again. the thing is that when u install a stereo into one of these cars theres a anti theft system that stops fuel from going to the injectors. thats why when u install a aftermarket stereo u are supose to get eh harness so that it doesnt engage the ats(anti theft system). and if there is no current going to the crank sensor cut the wire long enough to hood an extra wire to it and then hook it up to ignition fuse in the fuse box(inside the car) this will send a a current to the crank sensor so when u turn the key on it will start. this is only a temperary fix. just gives u enough time to pick up the money to bring the car to the garage and get it checked correctly. anything else just ask.
