Car just refuses to start


Clicking usually indicates low charge on battery, but it can also be the contacts from the battery to the engine and frame. Check the cables to see if they are not making good contact or corroded--if you are a DIY enthusiast change the battery cables or get a metal-wire brush & wrenches & clean everywhere they connect.

Another preliminary task is to do a wiggle test--wiggle all the wiring you can see under the hood & try restarting to see if there's an intermittant wiring or harness connection problem with anything under the hood. Honda Pilots have problems like this with the main wiring harness.

Pontiac Bonneville Wont start and charge after i changed alternator


Check the wire from alternator to fuse box for a bad wire or a break in it. or corrosion on it. Battery cables loose or corroded. Is the battery ok!! check the main fuses in under hood fuse box. Good-Day! The charging wire goes to the fuse box first.

No power


CHECK THE (+)POSITIVE TERMINAL OF BATTERY IS CONNECTED WITH A THICK WIRE AND A THIN WIRE WHICH LEADS TO OTHER ELECTRICAL SUPPLY.
THIS THIN WIRE COULD HAVE BROKEN NEAR TO THE BATTERY.

Unable to start but lights came on battery is said to not be the problem then tried module but states a new battery was put in because it wont hold the charge still do not know what the problems is


sounds like a bad starter, test for power with a testlight,have someone crank the engine while you check for power at starter , the small wire should have power when key is in start position. if theres power then replace starter, hope this helps good luck.

Our R reg Sharan will no longer start.


first go to the basics charge the battery fully make sure leads are clean and tight with ignition off put car in gear handbrake off and rock car in gear to turn engine over (make sure you are not on a hill) so as to move starter.
check back of starter wire connection both large power wire and small spade terminal
check wiring on back of alternator plug and main wiring for alternator if all this is ok and it wont start if you have ignition lights but still doing the same then if it is manaual tow the car and try and start it if it is auto you can only replace bit by bit but try battery first from donor car as this is the easiest good luck

Engine wont start


Your starter draws more amperage than nearly anything else in the car...Don't assume that the battery is charged unless you test it with a voltmeter. It must have at least 12v and not drop below 9.5 volts under a 200amp load. If battery tests good, check the connections to make sure that the terminals and cable contacts are clean and secure. If good, make sure that engine and starter ends of cables are also good. If clicking is coming from the starter, then it's likely that the solenoid is bad...Best to change as starter and solenoid together because brushes inside starter are usually found to be worn out just about when solenoid fails. Don't change the starter 'till other testing has been done. Some systems use another fender or firewall mounted relay. If that is making the click, change that first.
