Sounds like water in the gas or a fuel pressure problem

I hit a pot hole and my battery died the next morning. I got it tested and it was bad. I bent both right side wheels after hitting a pot hole. My car won't stay charged. Active steering is off too.


I would check all earth wire on your car , as it sounds if there is a bad earth wire or a broken one ., this would explain your battery going flat and the flat battery would probably cause your problem with the steering as it will probably be an electric steering pump

I have a 1997 grand voyager


Does it not start, or not crank ? And did you try it in neutral instead of park ?

Alternator/Electrical??


check the connection on your battery terminal ends. if they are loose or corroded that could explain the intermittent no spark. also could be a short somewhere but id check the terminals first. I had that problem once and the car did all sorts of weird things. airbag light, check engine light, randomly wouldnt start until i would mess with the battery.

Wont turn over - turn the key and nothing at all


It may be the negative battery terminal. This happened with mine and a friends pickups. The wires would stiffen overnight in the chilled air, and it would lose most of the connection, so in the morning, my lights would come on, I would cheer, turn the key, and be rewarded with a slight clunk and a dead car. Mine grounds out somewhere too, as the thing sparks like a demon when I reconnect the battery.
Go out and move the cable around some, make sure both terminals are tight, and keep trying to start it. Might not be the problem, but at least it's something free to try before you bring it in, perhaps you have a ground issue somewhere. Best of luck.

On cold mornings, car won't start the first 2 tries, open the hood and slam the hood and the car starts. please help.


YOU EITHER NEED AN AUTOMATIC HOOD SLAMMER, OR CLEAN THE BATTERY TERMINALS, REMOVE NEG. CABLE FIRST, THEN THE POS. CABLE CLEAN BOTH CABLES & BOTH BATTERY TERMINALS BRIGHT & SHINNY. PUT POS. ON BATTERY & TIGHTEN. LAST THING PUT NEG. CABLE ON & TIGHTEN. IF THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS, HOLD THE IGNITION SWITCH IN START POSITION, HAVE SOMEONE TAP ON THE METAL PART OF THE STARTER WITH A MEDIUM SIZE HAMMER. IF THAT MAKES THE STARTER REACT, THE STARTER IS PROBABLY BAD.

Hi my 2001 Buick century will not turn over why did this happen even after trying a boost did not make it turn,,car did not have any problem in the pass just happen this morning what would cause this not...


The most common cause is a bad battery or corroded battery connections to the battery. Try to loosen and re-tighten the battery terminals at the battery. It helps when you have your headlights turned on. So that you can see if the headlights get brighter when your tightening the terminals. I hope this helps :)

Mercury cougar wont start


My first suspicion is the battery connections may be lose and also the battery may now be run down. If you take the terminal connections off and clean them and the terminal posts so that they are shiny clean and charge the battery you can try again. If the car starts, that was the problem. If it doesn't, then look for the starter solenoid and lose connections there and also look toward the starter next. A tech with a volt meter can run independent checks and narrow it down further but having good connections and a charged battery are necessary to get started with the other tests.

Hi ihave a fiat brava 1.2 x reg in the morning the car will not start it turns over rather lazy and only 2 or 3 turns and the digital clock trip meter reset to zero.it has new battery earth wires ok...


It seems the battery loses power over night.
There seems to be some electrical componant chewing up the battery.
Try to remove one of the battery terminal wire at night and thn fix it in the morning and thn see if it will start without jumping, if it does thn the battery is being chewed up overnight.
If after removing the battery terminal at night and refitting it in the morning and it still requires jump start ,thn the battery is faulty.
Hope this helps!

Car wont start clicking noise by fuse box


Try removing the battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals. Coat same with an anti-corrosion grease. Wash your hands after this to prevent mysterious holes in your clothes. Start the engine and measure the voltage at the battery terminals--should read 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Hope this helps.
