What you need to do is get a battery post cleaner from checkers etc. clean the posts on the battery (ask the parts guy to give you a short demo) and clean your battery + and - connections. Be careful not to touch anything to the connections or it can spark and cause damage. After everything is clean reconnect the connections and tighten them pretty good.Now your battery should charge better and your car should start consistently. If not you made need a new battery. Good Luck

Sometimes the car starts sometimes it doesn't...when it doesn't, if you wiggle the battery cables it will start. we checked the battery, it's good, only a year old. Also, when you're driving, sometimes the...

If it will start after you 'wiggle' the battery cables, you don't have a tight connection. Remove the cables, clean all the connections with a wire brush, then make sure you firmly attach cables. Connections MUST be clean and tight. If you continue to have trouble, check the connections at the other end of the cables (starter and ground), as the 'wiggle fix' may be a loose or dirty connection at the other end of the cables. This is probably also the cause of your elec. problems, hopefully once connections are cleaned and tightened properly, all will be fixed.

1995 subaru wont start the starter and battery are brand new,

Iwould check where the grounds at the motor and body. Make sure there is no rust built up under them. Sometimes just loosening and retightening them is enough to make a good contact. Good luck and have a good day.

Hi my car runs for so long then when we stop sometimes it starts then somtimes it wont it wouldn't start yesterday and wont start today We have put a new battery on it .Been told it could be the fuel pump

I have a similar problem - been told it is either the alarm immobiliser or the starter motor brushes expanding when hot and preventing a good contact. When engine cools, then it will start.

1996ford econ Shifting gear problem

Almost definately, follow the shift linkages down the column and under the bonnet get a buddy to move them while you are looking the worn parts will be very obvious. quite involved to repair if it all needs to be overhauled, may be best to be left to an experianced tech, unless you have relevent experience. it wont start somtimes because the inhibitor switch is on the linkage.
