What has happened is when you switched the battery the computer lost its memory.. once you get it started keep the rpms up and go for a drive it may take up to 5 moles of driving before everything is relearned. then it should idle fine

1991 land cruiser won't stay runing Only run for second and stop but starstart right than quit.

Sounds like fuel feed problem. Could be relay to fuel filter to fuel pump. Start by listening to see if pump comes on when key is turned from off to run position, should run for just a few seconds for prime. Should be valve on fuel rail on engine to check pressure, pressure should be around 40+ psi.

Starting problem, VZ commodore V6 Alloytec 2005 Just spins seem to want to start but not getting enough fuel. Checked at fuel relay, 12v available at relay socket when ignition switched on but only 2.5v...

Hey mate, I have the same problem. Try switching that relay with one of the other relays first to see if its that.
I have a suspicion that it might be ignition related as I though I smelt unburnt fuel in the exhaust. I could be wrong though.
Im going to have a look today, and will let you know how I get on.

1992 mercedes 300e cranks over starts for a second then die

Could be a number of things. Start with the fuel pump relay. When your key is in the start/crank pos. it overides the relay as soon as you release the key to run possition the relay has to stay ingaged or the fuel pump will shut off. Also look in your owners manuel for impact or emergency fuel shut off switch reset.

The car is overheating and when you first start the car the fan runs for maybe 15 seconds and then quits. What should i be looking to replace? Is there a method I can use to check to see if the fan is...

It is common for the fan to run momentarily when motor is started. After that the fan should only come on when the engine reaches a certain temperature. If the fans are not running when the engine is overheating, then it is usually the fan relay switch. Your local auto parts store should help you to locate the relay switch, and they are only a few dollars to replace. And can easily be done in 5 minutes or less.
To test the relay first, with the key in the on position, use an electrical tester to find the "hot" wire going to the relay and using a small piece of wire, connect that "hot" wire to one of the other connectors on the relay. If the fan comes on when you do this, you know that the relay switch is indeed defective.

Electrical problem there was no spark changed moulder starting fluid will make it run but wont stay runing need to find fuel relay or fuse

If starter fluid in the throttle body is making it run for a few seconds then you have a fuel problem. Either a new pump or relay or both.

Fog lights staying on

1st most newer car cars have a timer delay that helps light the area you are in for a couple of seconds. You may have had the knob turned all the way up on the turn signal switch. The same thing will happened if this switch is turned all the way up, the interrior light will stay on. Turn the lights on with the switch and see if the fog lights come on, do this without the car running.Trun the lights off,see if the fog lights stay on then go out after a while.if so you have a delay on the fog lights or relay. You may need to replace the relay only. Part $ 15 trace fog light wiring to relay usually under hood away from water sources.......runjoe
