    Did you try a new battery? Your jumper cables might be bad and it could just be a dead battery.



    If the battery is good check the fusible links on the positive battery cable.

I experienced similar problem, all electrical functions are working but engine does not start, the problem was the strat coil (I guess the right name is the "start up motor") which did not activate, so the shaft does not engage with the engine. In this case I did not heared any sound, only the fuel pump while turning the car key. I hit softly the coil body (start up motor) and then started the car. I had to replace the coil for a new one and the problem was permanently fixed (around 10 months already since then).
I Hope this help.
Regards

Mario,
try taking the battery cables completely off and cleaning them.
<:AtomicElement>with a wire brush, put them back on and wait for about 15 min. if it don't start by turning the key over jump it off if the battery is still good it will charge if not you need a new battery. watch your voltmeter on the dashboard while it's running. good-luck, ray

"have spark at coil down to dizzy but no spark at plugs"
this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

Did you check the alternator? if it is faulty the car will drain all the power from the battery until it goes flat

Car goes completely dead. Drove car for a while and after a short stop at the post office tried to start the car but completely dead. After about 10 minutes car it regained electrical and started again....


does goes completely dead mean it stops running while going down the steet or maybe only when you come to a stoplight? if it runs ok and just will not start as it sounds when you return after a short period of parking it.there are several oter things unclear.when you turn the key to start it do you hear the usual sounds like the engine is turning but it just wont run=one issue.if you hear nothing at all= dead baterry, loose connection in the wiring, bad starter. it sounds like the starter is working but the engine will not run.this could be a problem with the ignition system= computersystems =crank sensor. or fuel supply problems. nothins easy anymore. sorry.

1995 nisan quest stalls


Well the first thing that you must check is see if the battery is charging ,if the alternator is charging the battery enough,with a multimeter,if there is not enough power in the battery ,the starter will be hard to turn the engine for starting,hope that clear your mind and help you

I have a 97 plymouth breeze 2.0 L V4. wont start


SOUNDS LIKE the engine siezed the oil light was an indicator there was no oil pressure with no oil pressure the engine would have been damaged severly use a 3/4" socket and ratchet on the crankshaft pulley and try and turn the engine over by hand it should turn freely and you should feel all 4 cylinders compression as the cylinder comes up on the compression stroke

Randomly won't start, happened after jumping dead battery


Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.

05 ford escape wont start. jump started it and it started fine but only runned for a few minutes and the engine started to stall and went off. tried to start it again and it wont turn with the same...


okay try this....talk to your parts store and get a battery load tester, and find out if the battery is indeed dead. My guess is it sounds like the Altenator is dying. they are around 50-100 and can be install by a pro in minutes.

97 f-150 wont start sometimes when hot


Check for spark. Also listen for the fuel pump to kick on or spray starting fluid in the throttle body to see if it starts. If the fuel pump isn't kicking on then its your fuel pump and its located in the tank
