SOURCE: starter wont engage

The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.

I had a similiar problem, I had a bad sensor at the back of the engine, it was connected by 2 hoses to the EGR pick up tube.
I unplugged the sensor and the car started, I drove it to the parts store and replaced the part and it ran great after.

SOURCE: Intermittent fuel pump engagement when turning key - 2001 Taurus

try cleaning the connector that goes to the fuel pump, sometimes they corrode on inside. If that does not fix, test the wires feeding fuel pump with a multi meter until the condition shows itself again, if voltage drops to zero or very low then wiring problem, if voltage is unchanged with problem and fuel pump is not working and connectors are all clean, try replacement of fuel pump.

I replaced the ignition lock cylinder in my 92 cabriolet and I turned the key and it started first swing, then I was putting the steering wheel covers back on and it just turned off... When I try to turn...


If it's an automatic check fuse #15 wether it's a stick or automatic you should have power at the red & black wire coming out of your ignition switch when you turn key to start postion and power at the red wire going into switch at all times. if no power coming oit on the red/black wire you need an ignition switch. if there is power coming out of switch try putting car in nuetral (for auto trans). if still nothing you'll need to check for power at small wire going to starter when key is turned to start. if has power then need starter if no power you'll need to check starter interlock relay.

MY PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER 'S HEADLIGHT'S AND DASH LIGHTS WORK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER. THERE IS NO SPARK COMING FROM THE ELECTRICAL WIRES.


When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.


If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

My obd2 isn't getting power what I do?


Check Pin #16 on the Data Link Connector (DLC) for battery voltage. (See Diagram)

If there is no battery voltage present check the fuse marked "OBD II" in the engine compartment fuse block. It is a 10 Amp fuse. If the fuse is good, repair the circuit between the fuse and pin #16 at the DLC.
If battery voltage is present at Pin 16 at the DLC, check for ground at pin 4 on the DLC. If ground is not present, repair the ground circuit between the DLC and Ground G202 located at the left side of the dash.
HINT: the easiest way to check BOTH of these at the same time is to use paper clips plugged into pin #16 and Pin #4 and connect a light bulb between the two. If the light illuminates brightly, power and ground are both OK.
If no problem with power or ground is detected at the DLC, check the Owner's Manual for your code reader.

How to turn off check engine light on 1987 AUDI 5000?


This is on a 1987 audi 5000s. The light that comes on is an engine with a lightning bolt through it. When this comes on the car loses power, have to turn off and restart. That will work for a short distance and the light back on again. I just got the car about a month ago for my 16 yr. son's first car. If there is anything you can do I appreciate it. Thank you.
Open the driver's door of the PT Cruiser and kneel down to locate the 16-point data link connector (DLC) under the dash. It sits up under the dash to the left of the brake pedal on earlier model Cruisers. Later models moved the connector slightly to the right, closer to the steering wheel column, but still under the dash.

  • 2 Plug the pocket scanner plug into the DLC. Because of its unique shape, there is only one way to plug any connectors onto the DLC, making it foolproof.
  • 3 Place the key into the ignition and turn it two clicks forward to the "II" position. This position provides accessory power and illuminates the instrument cluster without the engine running. It also provides accessory power to the pocket scanner.
  • 4 Read the onscreen menu of the pocket scanner. The scanners are easy to use, but if necessary, read the manual provided with the scanner to navigate through the menu. Many modern pocket scanners are equipped with "Erase" buttons -- in that case, press erase to reset the code. Other models may have "Enter" or "Scroll" button(s) to navigate through a few different options (one of the options being the erase codes option).
  • 5 Erase the code(s) with the scanner and start the engine of the Cruiser. Determine if the service light is out. If not, repeat the procedure. If the light is still on, it means there is a "hard code" that must be read (with the scanner under "Read Codes" option) and properly repaired.
