I had this same problem. I was told it was the crankshaft sensor. They replace it and I have not had the problem since.

2001 lincoln ls cranks but wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

One thing these audio shops do sometimes is drill through the firewall and several times in my career have seen where they have drilled through the harness and repaired with **** connectors and it does not work. They need to recheck all of their work. When I put radios in any of my cars, I always buy the harness which splices to the radio harness and then allows you to simply plug the wires into the vehicles harness so everything works properly. Did they install a sub woofer, amp or anything else that may require a seperate power wire? Make sure either they fix properly or send it to Kia to have the wiring harness replaced (I have done this too) and they pay for it! Let me know if you need anything else.

1991 Lexus 400 - engine doesn't start - battery seems charged - 12.3 volts - makes clicking sound only - doesn't turn over at all.


Is it one click or multiple clicks. If it's multiple clicks, it sounds like a dead battery. Voltage isn't always an indicator of a good battery, you need to have enough cranking amps to be able to start an engine also. If you have dash lights and it only clicks once, you could have a bad starter. An easy way to check this is to try and jump start the vehicle. If it starts up with a jump start, you need a new battery. If it still doesn't start up and it just clicks, you probably need a new starter.

Good Luck!

The check engine light is interesting considering everything else is out. I would go to the fuse panels and trace power to the ignition switch. Other than the check engine light, this seems to be most likely.

Replaced battery. now malfunction indicator lamp


The light will stay on until about 20 starts. Once that 20th start is made, light should shut off. If not, it can be shut off by diagnostic scanner.
