Something electrical may be remaining on like a light somewhere that you dont normally see like a trunk light that should be off, also could be something with a blown fuse with power still going to the relay area (but it wouldnt affect anything because of the blown fuse)

Replace your resistor if you haven't already. I had the same issue with mine, it only worked on high.

I don't know what you mean by temp module but i'am gessing the switch on the dash, but to me it sounds like the resister is bad, i believe its located under the hood on the air box if not than chk. under the dash by the heater motor, i have seen the wires burn that plug into it when they go bad, thats what makes the blower run and also regulates the speeds of the blower motor.

If/How long will it crank over before it stops? Are you saying it will crank over, but very slow? Has it been sitting quite a while. Got good spark, and fuel?

07 ram 5.7 No start 1 click Battery cleaned charged up tried on boost - still 1 click . New starter- ran Jumper wire to starter from battery- 1 click. What can it be ?


If the battery connections at the starter are secure it is likely the solenoid is defective on the new starter.

When attempting to start monitor the battery voltage. If the voltage only changes sightly still above 12 volts it is likely that the starter motor is not getting power. Confirm that the starter solenoid is being powered when attempting to start.

If
  • all battery connections to the starter are secure
  • and power is applied to the starter solenoid
  • and no crank above 12 volts
these combined conditions will confirm that the new starter is defective.

Replaced battery. still would not start. Cleaned treminal of all corrision. cranked fine. however 1 day later would not start. jump started . drove a couple of miles but when I turned on lights, engine...


Sounds like a bad alternator. Drained your battery and when you turned on the lights it took all the power left in your battery. When you drain a battery down that far, they are real hard to jump, and coupled with the alternator, the car is not producing enough current to start and stay running.

I would take the alternator off and take it to oyur local auto parts store to be tested. If bad, replace it and charge the battery fully before starting. Then check voltage at battery with motor running. Should be 13.2 -14 Volts DC. If not, you may have a bad battery cable or blown fusible link. (especially that if the alternator tests good).....Mike

Engine won't start and if starter is replaced does it have any other problems


Engine wont start.If car battery voltage is low then engine wont start.The fully charged battery will show 12 volt.But if battery is showing 12 volt.Then check the battery to starter connection.If that is also checked ok then check voltage for starter itself.The starter is also a 12 volt part.But if the starter is faulty then it has to be replaced.If you start the car but if its not starting then its starter fault.But if the car makes cranking noise but its not getting turn over then there are many other possibilities.But if the car is not even cranking then its faulty starter.Get this checked and confirmed before replacing any part.This should help.Thanks.

Batt. and alt. only last 6 months or so then won't start car


Ok, if the cranking amps is like 70AMPs or 100 AMPS as measured by an inductive ammeter on the battery cable when starting, and it does NOT start, then it's a bad starter.

However, if it does start, that's normal.

On a car that old, I would check that the battery cable ends are squeaky clean, wire brushed, or even replaced if cleaning is not possible.

Usually, a battery that is tested good will be good under a load test.

Also, try to use an ammeter to find out if there is a drain on the battery above .2 A while it sits there turned off. This could lead to a solution if you investigate where a short may be.

Wont start,no sounds no power,completely dead


You will need a volt meter to figure this one out. Battery voltage? Should be above 12 volts, and while you are trying to "crank" the engine over, if it's still over 12, you need to see if that power is getting to the starter motor. If it goes below 9 or 10 volts, you either have a bad battery, or the starter motor is shorted, or bad.
To test the starter, you should have a large wire going to the starter that has 12 volts all of the time from the battery. A smaller wire will have 12 volts only when the key is turned to "start". If you have these and a good ground, the starter motor is bad.

Trouble starting replaced battery


Too brief. A good battery should be about 12,5 volts. When you crank it over, it should drop to about 10 volts. If a starter is binding or shorted, the voltage will drop to 9 or less. If the started brushes are worn, it will stay around 11 volts. If it stays at 12 or just clicks, then it is the starter solenoid. If it does not even click, then it is probably the neutral safety switch, or the ignition switch itself. When you start it, it should go up to about 13.5 volts when you rev the engine. If it doesn't go over 12.5, then the alternator is bad and you are draining the battery.

Car won't crank & makes a clicking noise when ignition is turned.


test battery voltage , should be 12 volts, also check battery amp draw when you attempt to start engine, you should have 12 volts at the starter solenoid , you could have a faulty starter motor, battery cables and or terminals... even with a good battery check for vltage drop from battery positive post to battery positve at solenoid ... large drop equals bad cable, replace ... just points to check....
