I had the same situation....1. Apparently any major jolt to the car will actuate the electric fuel pump shut down system. This system is designed to turn off the fuel pump in case of an accident. I have had a trusted and good mechanic tell me that even the speed bumps in large parking areas....such as Wal Mart.....can actuate the fuel pump shutdown system.
2. Solution: At the glove compartment, down and to the right there is a "reset button" to re-activate the fuel system. It is very important to use the manual that came with the car and follow it when resetting this system.
3. I reset mine and followed the manual and have had no more problems.

I have a 2003 acura rsx my starter was messed up so i switched it my car will turn over but wont start and if it does it will rev up then die, i just got a new battery so i don't know what is wrong...


Make sure the cable clamps or bolts are clean and tight on the batt. Dirt will interfere and cause batt to act like it is low on power.

No power and batt is good


My first guess would be a dead cell inside the battery, or a blown fuseable link between the battery and the fuse box.
Someone would need to check the battery connections and fuse box with a meter.

I have a 1995 honda accord and it just wont start , When i turn the key over to start it just wont turn over , i change the fuel pump and the starter is good .. it sounds like its trying to start but...


The contacts in the starter motor solenoid are worn, the clicking that you can hear is the solenoid being pulled in, but not making contact to allow the main battery voltage/current from getting to the starter motor. Their are 2 things you can do to get you out of trouble.

Rock the car back and forward whilst in gear, stop and try again.

Tap the side of the starter motor cover with a piece of wood or soft hammer. This will wiggle the contacts and allow for starting.

These may get the car up and running, but ultimately the contacts will have to be replace.

If you can find the starter motor, the solenoid is the small round or triangle box on top or to the side f the starter motor, usually with two small wires going to it.

Car wont start got a boost still wont start clicking sounds while tring to start is it the battery or altrnator


It most likely sounds like a starter. If the batt is good and it won't start with a jump than I would think its the starter. If it is easy to reach the starter you can try to hit the starter with a hammer while someone else is turning the key. Be safe and ensure there is no chance that the car will move when trying this.

Car wont turn over,tested the starter,replaced the starter relay,new batt cables and batt,still wont turn over


Try the ignition switch (the actual part with the keys). You can actually try starting the car without using the keys. You can do this by hot wiring.

New starter good batt. only clicks wont turn over 1995 montero


The Batt does not have a full charge or it is the wrong cranking AMP's for the car... find out if it is the right Batt and also that it is put on a "slow charge" over night or at least 6 hr's

Car shakes when trying to start and doesn't turn over


  1. hold gas pedal to floor while trying to start. do not pump pedal.
  2. holding pedal to floor is how you start a flooded f.i. engine
