    new starter , battery

  • Anonymous Mar 30, 2014

    My 2001 Taurus won't crank but all lights are working fine, then I replaced the starter, but it only cranks, not turn over. I have not driven the car for two or three months. Battery seems to be fine, even tried to jump start it, only cranks. What should I do next? Thanks

I have had the exact same problem. There is an ignition lock that probably went off. There is a fuse box under the hood. The fuse that says ignition on it pull it out and put it back in. This should reset the ignition lock. Its a safety feature because the car thinks that someone was trying to tamper with it.

Why does my 2003 pontiac sunfire lose all power while driving


That can be the symptom of a bad Ignition Control Module, or also a bad crank position sensor. The ICM can be taken off and tested for free at any parts store. The crank sensor circuit can be tested on the car with a multi-meter. Also small motors (like a fuel pump motor) that are starting to fail can sometimes work until they get hot and then stop working until they cool down again.

Next time the car shuts down and won't restart, check for spark on a spark plug wire with the engine cranking over. If you have no spark, suspect the ignition control module or the crank position sensor. If you still have spark, but won't start, check if the fuel pump is putting gas up to the engine.

My 2001 sunfire ran out of gas now it wont start


Smack the bottom of the gas tank a couple of times while someone tries to start it. If it starts then your pump is old and tired. Time for a new one.

2001 Pontiac Sunfire ran out of gas now won't start. Tried changing the fuel filter, and cycling the key several times, can hear the fuel pump running. Also could get to start with spraying fuel into air...


The fuel in the fuel tank also cools the pump during operation. The pump could have heated up internally, causing it to fail. I would recommend checking the fuel pressure with a gauge and be sure the fuel system is pressurized and not low. A fuel pump can still run and be heard, but at the same time, it also may not provide enough critical pressure to the fuel rail and injectors.

You might want to have it checked to see if you have fuel pressure or see if there is spark going thru to your spark plug.If everything is ok it might be your timing belt needs replacing

Look for the crash sensor that shuts off the fuel pump, usually located in a hard to reach spot in the trunk, push to reset it. Check your owners manual, it will tell you where if you can't locate it by sight.
