1998 crown Vic is in shutdown so it want crank. How do you get that to reset. Already took battery cables off to try resetting. Didn't work

What do you mean it won't crank ? What happens when you turn the key to the start position ? Does the starter engage an spin the engine around an the vehicle won't start an run ? This is called a crank -no-start condition . Or is the problem that , when you turn the key to start nothing happens ? This would be a no crank-no- start condition . Very different diagnostic's involved ! Taking the battery cables off an trying a reset is a waste of time . Doesn't sound like you know much about automotive diagnostic's ,do yourself a favor an take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

Hi my 1999 s-10 cranks over but wont fire up...

Check to see if it has fuel by spraying throttlebody cleaner into the throttle body and then trying to start it. If it fires up for a few seconds then shuts off its the fuel pump or restricted fuel filter. if it does not fire up then you need to check spark. if your getting a real weak or intermittant spark or even no spark at all its probably the crank position sensor. Sometimes the coils go out but not very often.

2001 impala starts and dies It usually starts the second time and stays running. also stalls intermittently while going down the road. have replaced mass air flow sensor, crank sensor, removed throttle...

this sounds like a fuel issue, sometimes can be difficult to diagnose because its obviously being intermittant. whether its a fuel pressure regulator or the pump itself, i feel the most likely cause is the pump itself losing prime and thats why you have to try 2 times or more to crank because you are creating pressure from the fuel tank everytime you try to crank, this would also be a possibility as to the shut off if its getting hot than shutting down and than your able to start it back up. i would put a fuel pressure gauge on the vehicle and watch my fuel pressure readings to make sure they are staying true. if the fuel pump checks out than it will be an ignition or computer issue, i hope this helps

2001 v6 ford mustang. when i try to start it it cranks like it wants to start but it wont, it just started doing that more consistent

Well, I have an 01 V6 Mustang as well. I am having the same problem. It is an intermittant problem with the PATS system. What i normally do is to disconnect the battery and let it sit. Sometimes it takes a few hours, sometimes overnight. I am actually on my way to have a remote start unit installed. The remote start unit will include a PATS bypass module. I will return to let you know how it works.....

No spark at the plugs

This is 99% certain to be the common fault to do with the software in the ECU, as I understand most RX8s were recalled to resolve the issue but there are still 1000's of non resolved rex's out there.
It normally happens if someone has started the car, moved it only slightly like a few feet and then switched the engine off, this cause the engine to flood.
Print this off and take to your dealer:

Some vehicles may experience difficulty starting (cranks no start).
A cranks, no start condition may occur after driving the vehicle a short distance without engine reaching normal operating temperature. Examples: starting a vehicle and moving it to wash it, engine stall due to mis-application of clutch then restart. This commonly occurs at port facilities or dealer lots where vehicles are frequently started cold, moved for short distances and then turned off.
A cranks, no start condition may be caused either by fuel flooded spark plugs or lower than normal compression due to apex seals locked into rotor groove from carbon accumulation.
NOTE: ^ After repairs, provide customers with CUSTOMER INFORMATION shown in this bulletin (for customers to try after a "CRANKS, NO START" condition, before towing to dealership).

Now thats gotta be worth a few thumbs! ;o)

2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara

Long Crank Time Due To Possible Contact Of Camshaft Sensor To Camshaft Gear
This bulletin involves the replacement of the engine camshaft sensor.
2007 (JK) Wrangler
NOTE: This bulletin applies to vehicles equipped with a 3.8L engine (sales code
The customer may experience one of the following conditions:
a). Long engine crank time.
b). Two engine start attempts prior to engine starting.
c). Due to the “TIP Start Feature” on automatic transmission equipped vehicles, once the
ignition key / switch has been released from the “START” position, the starter may stay
engaged for up to 10 seconds while the engine attempts to start.
The above conditions may be due to the position of the camshaft sensor to the camshaft
gear. The sensor spacer gasket may have come loose during engine assembly and
caused the camshaft sensor to be adjusted too close or in contact with the camshaft gear.
If the above condition is present perform the Repair Procedure.
