Question about 1993 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Car won't start

Tried to start my car it sounded like the battery was almost dead I got a jump. On the inside it sounded like it was the battery but on the outside I could hear a click each time I tried to start it. When it first broke it sounded like a winding sound almost like something broke, I just remembered about one week ago I did all this driving and we went into the mall and came right out ,the car started but check engine light and battery light and oil light was on, and their was no gas pedal, this happened once before. I also had to add radiator fluid in the reserve before. I prayed about the situation each time and turned the car off and after it seemed cooled it would start. Thank you, Georgia

I don't know much about us cars but there is normally a temperature button i don't know what it is called a button as it is not one lol
it mesures the temperature of the car and tells the car if it is safe to start or not
this to me sounds like the problem
had this problem with a mitsubishi magna
it is cheep and easy to fix
on some cars it stops the starter motor from starting other cars it stops the spark and some it stops the fuel flow
hope this helps

Sounds like you have a toasted battery or alternator. Have you performed a load test on the battery? Have you tried to charge the battery? First remove the battery and charge it externally from the vehicle. If the battery won't hold a charge, or won't hold a charge of 12 volts, replace it. Once you have the vehicle started, test the operation of the alternator. It should be putting out at least 13 volts back to the battery to keep it charged - if it is putting less than 13 volts or more than 16 volts, replace the alternator.

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?

Sounds like the battery is completely dead. It's either a faulty battery(go and have it checked) or a dead alternator. To check if the alternator is bad, once the car is started, remove the negative battery cable, if it stays on, then the alternator is good, if it dies immediately, then the alternator is bad and needs replacement.

My 2005 nissan maxima did not want to start. all the lights inside the car came on and when i tried to start the car it had a tapping/clicking noise and it did not start.


sounds to me like your battery is dead. put cables on it and see if you can jump it off a different car, but it sound like your battery is dead.
