I had a similar issue. All of my lights worked but it wouldn't even try to turn over. It ended up being the anti-theft thing in the ignition. Thankfully my warranty covered it. You'll probably need to take it to a dealer.

Check the starter. It sounds like it may have died.

Car is making a humming sound when battery is attached and keys in ignition


it sounds like your battery charge maybe low. turn on your headlights and verify that lights are bright while starting car. if lights are weak, you need to check the battery voltage. a cheap multimeter will tell you what the voltage is. If battery is good, check your starter relay. Also try jump starting your car with another car. if it starts then you know its not a bad starter relay or your starter motor. if the car starts keep your multimeter on the battery and make sure your reading about 14 volts. that will tell you that the alternator is working right. shut your car off and monitor the battery to see if the voltage starts to drop. it should read about 12 volts. if it drops to below that immediately your battery is not holding a charge, or something is draining the battery. if it is not holding a charge; try jumping the battery again while the positive cable is not connected to the battery. then check the battery to be sure it is holding a charge. If the battery holds a charge, you need to find out what is draining the battery while connected to the car. When you reconnect your battery, your alarm may go off, so have your remote handy. on most cars you can turn alarm off simply by unlocking and locking the doors with the remote. You can usually find what is draining your battery, by removing fuses while monitoring the battery. the battery will stop draining when the suspected fused circuit is pulled. You also want to make sure that your trunk light, or interior light, is not ON and draining your battery. Many people with remotes will on occasion find their trunk open, which will drain the battery overnight. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I have a 1989 Toyota Corolla DLX 4dr, fwd. The car was running and starting fine (drove it to the store this morning) and when I go to move it later to let my roommates out of the driveway, the car wont...


Battery very weak
Alternator not working
Bad connections at battery posts, or bad connections on ground cable

If you can jump the car to start it, and it will stay running, take it to Advance Auto, Auto Zone, O'Reilly's, etc and have them test your battery/alternator.

Hyundai accent 2001 will not start all lights work radio works heater fan works battery in 3 months old when I turn the key all i hear is a humming sound for about 1 min. than nothing. weather has be


The humming would be the fuel pump coming on. It should only hum for a few seconds, then shut off.
Your problem is with the start circuit from the battery to the starter, or from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid. Check the connections at the starter (the big cable) for tightness.
Is the battery charged up enough to turn the engine over? Check by turning headlights on and observe while someone turns key to crank. If they dim a LOT, then either battery is too low, or the starter is bad and needs removing for testing. If brightness doesn't change, then the circuit from ignition switch to starter solenoid is likely not working. Check for 12 volts at the small wire to starter solenoid with key in cranking position. If you have power there, the solenoid may be bad. Remove starter for testing. If no power at solenoid in starting position, then either the ignition switch is bad or the neutral safety switch might be the problem, or the wiring from the switch to the starter solenoid is not passing current.
Good luck.

My 1999 buick Lesabre will not start even though the horn, lights, radio works and the starter is new. Is there computer problem?


It may be the ignition switch key cylinder. My Buick did the same. Everything worked except starting. Dealer replaced cylinder and reprogramed two ignition keys. Copst, $504.
