1998 massey 1250 diesel tractor has a new battery but will not turn over. When you turn the key everything go off and does not turn the starter


Question ,was it running before this happened

If so ,try and turn the crank shaft ,if it turns then the problem is either a battery cable , check connections at battery and starter and also the ground .

If this fails , take a pair of jumper cables hook to battery with out battery cables hooked up .

Then hook ground from jumper cables to frame and positive to large stud on starter solinoid , take screw driver touch large post of starter to small post on starter solenoid if it just clicks or does nothing replace starter.

Be very careful these are large amperage's your working with ,and can be dangerous ! if not comfortable with this method then just take starter out and have it tested in town.

Left turn signal in the dash and on the outside front does not work. What could this be?


well I don't know what kind of car/truck this is because you didn't say it here, so lets try this if you put on your 4 way emergency flashers does it work yes/no /// if yes you have to separate flashers for turn signals & emergency flashers and one is not working on the left side/////////// if no the flasher is blown for the left side also check the bulbs to make sure they work on the left signal outside front and back and look at the wires to make sure one did not break off ///// if after you have checked everything and all is good and you replaced the flasher and you still don't have a left signal the lever switch that you use on the steering column is n/g on some cars it's called a multifunction switch because it controls the wipers and flash to pass headlights hope this helps it should & next time you post you must be specific on make/ model/ year and any important info so someone here can help you

Ok, 2003 GMC Safari AWD 245,000 km. Drove 100km


sounds like an ignition switch glitch or ignition harness problem can be either depending on the amount of wear and tear with turning on and off of the ignition tumbler or possible chafing or inconsistent short in harness to ignition switch check the ground line up through harness first and check the wiring harness condition

98 Contour, starter ticks like dead battery and wipers cycle a couple of times when I turn the key to start. Wiper switch is in the off position, battery is fully charged. I would think possible starter...


If you turn the key and you hear a click and the motor is not moving your starter is probably bad. Everything can work on your car and the starter can be bad all by itself.
Check and see if your wiper is inthe correct position,sometimes we accidently move it without knowing.

99 Dodge Dakota won't start after using emergency flashers


Hi my name is Allen!
It sounds like you may have a bad Ignition swith or when you used the flashers it some how blew the main Ignition fuse.

By saying you tried to jump it, I'm assuming the engine and starter does not have any power at all, in other words everything is dead.

If you need further asistance you may contact me through FixYa!
