Car will not start how ? A crank- no - start or a no crank - no - start < meaning when you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ? Starter engages an spins the engine an doesn't start an run ! Or when you turn the key to start the position nothing happens ? Who told you it was a fuse ? Are there any light's lit on the instrument cluster , SECURITY ? If Nothing happens Find the starter relay an jump pin's 30 & 87 , if nothing is wrong with starter , battery , battery cables it should spin the engine . Is your vehicle automatic transmission or stick ? Automatic has a neutral safety switch , won't let vehicle engine spin unless in park or neutral . Manual has clutch switch , won't let starter engage unless the clutch pedal is pressed . Both of these switches can go bad . There are videos on youtube on basic electrical trouble shooting . Also on testing starter circuit . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Does your key switch work good? Do the warning lights and gauges on the dash all turn on with key in on? That verifies the ignition switch has power. If not, check fuse #9 in the Power Distribution Center (under the hood). It is a 30 amp fuse, providing power to the switch.
Are the battery cables clean and tightly connected at the battery and starter and the battery ground connection?
There is an Engine Starter Motor relay in the Power Distribution Center, the only thing between the ignition switch and the starter. With key in start, power is sent from the switch to this relay, and if relay is activated by the PCM (engine computer), then power goes on to the starter solenoid on the starter, and starter should then operate and crank the engine. If you have a voltmeter, you could do some tests for power at the terminals the relay plugs into. There are only 4 terminals. Post back with comments, or if you need help with testing those terminals.
Where did he get the power from to run the fan,if he just used a hot wire from inside the car it most likely blew the fuse for ignition as the engine fan gets its power from a relay in the power distribution box under the hood as far as the fan goes if it ran with the wire then the engine coolant temp sensor is probably bad
This sounds like a bad starter but you should of got dash lights and headlights, if there are no headlights or park lights and no dash lights then theres a bad connection, start at the battery remove the terminals and clean posts then follow the groung wire to engine block and make sure theres a good connection to engine, a quick trick is to use jumper cables and connect one end to battery neg terminal and the other end to the engine, a good clean spot of metal and then see if theres power, if there is then its the ground cable to engine, if theres still no power then locate the box that the postive cable goes to, this pos cable goes to the starter and also to a fuse/relay box, check that connection. good day.
any neon almost has a security system some times it will trip try using the key to un lock the door that will reset the system then start if nothing try the fuses under the hood one is bound to blow and wont let u start the car
Have you checked the starter solenoid. Your battery + cable connects to this then + cable runs from it to your starter. You also have an ignition switch wire connected to this. Just follow your cable from the battery and it will lead you right to the part. Some times these will break inside or the contacts go bad inside and therefore you will not get power to start the engine, but you will have power to turn on lights or whatever other accessories.The part is about $15
You've checked all the fuses. The fuse's in question
are #9 #10 #11 these are ign/start related. Also in the
power dist. center under the hood left side by the battery, check fuse #21. The starter relay is also
located in the pwr. dist ctr. Also if you have a factory
anti theft system. It could cause this problem.
Hope this helps.
