Question about 2003 Renault 181

2 Answers

Car wont start, contstant ticking from engine.

No electrics working, including lights, radio,and immobilizer. A couple of days ago the electrics were working but when I turned the key it just made a low revving noise and would not start. I thought maybe it was the battery. A couple of days later I thought I'd try and jump start with a friend this is when I discovered none of the electrics worked and a ticking noise which seems to becoming from the fuse box or battery area. This ticking noise was not present when the electrics worked.

Locate the ticking noise. It is a relay that has gone bad.

Posted question couple days ago, my 2005 lincoln navigator wont start, replaced.starter and battery didnt work..when u put the key on dash board lights up but when u turn the key, nothing happens, no...


Are you certain the security has not immobilized the car? If it isn't a security issue, there is probably a problem in the start circuit.
If you check for power on the small starter solenoid wire, with the key held in crank, and no power is on that wire-the start circuit from the ignition switch to the starter solenoid has a problem. If the wire does have power with key in cranking position, probably a bad connection from battery to starter, since you have a new starter.
To be certain the engine is not locked up, put a socket and wrench on the crankshaft pulley center bolt and turn the engine over by hand a revolution or so.

Still need an answer to why my 98 explorer wont start ,started just fine 3 minutes prior spins but no start get spark compression fuel but no start if i wait a day or two it almost starts but dies qi


Check if the injectors are pulsing when cranking the engine over. Listen for the tick, or feel for the pulse with your fingertips, or buy a cheap "noid light"-an injector circuit tester- one that fits your injector harness connectors-plug it into an injector connector and crank the car. If circuit is working the noid light will be flashing.
Some anti-theft systems immobilize the injector circuit when they are activated. So you have spark, compression, and fuel to the engine, check the injector circuit.

Flashing check engine light on 1997 Monte Carlo


If the CHECK ENGINE light come on, the PCM (computer car) have stored a fault code there; I suggest scanned this and note what fault code is there. Sometimes Autozone or AutoShop make this reader with OBD tools for free.

Keep in touch.

MY CAR DOESNT WANT TO START UP..THE LIGHTS ON THE DASHBOARD GOES ON. RADIO ON..BUT IT DOESNT START! SOMETIMES I HAVE TO WAIT 5 MINUTES AND TRY AGAIN.THEN IT STARTS UP?? CAN ANYONE HELP ME? KIA RIO 2002


hi..
Many cars these days are equipped with an immobilizer. (you can find more information about the immobilizer in your owner's manual). The immobilizer allows the engine to run only if the correct key is used. If your car has an immobilizer, you probable see a "Security" or Key-shaped light coming on on the dashboard every time you turn the ignition ON. If this light is flashing when you turn the ignition ON, it could mean that there is some problem with an immobilizer or the system does not recognize the key. If the immobilizer doesn't recognize the key, the engine wold not start at all, or would start and then die in few seconds.
You can try a spare key, if it won't work, your dealer is the place to call. Sometimes, the key is just need to be reprogrammed. On some cars you can find the information how to reprogram the key in the owner's manual...

thank u

Your immobilizer is enabled. Try locking/unlocking the doors with the remote five (5) times, this should remedy.

2003 hyundai tiburon won't start, (key shape light comes on)


The key icon is not the check engine light but the immobilizer light, therefore the car wont start. I have the same issue with my 03 Tiburon after i changed the motor and tranny. It ran fine for a couple of days and the quit.
I took towed the car to a dealership and they stated I needed a new BCM for $1200. However, I got a used BCM from an auto wrecker and will get the dealership to program it for about $200.

Car making ticking sounds.


Hi weaver-willi,
My name is Dennis and I can be of assistance.
The ticking (clicking) sound is the starter solenoid clicking to complete (close) the starter electrical circuit and to insert the starter pinion in the flywheel ring gear but the starter motor does not have enough amperage available to turn the starter motor.
All this to say you have corroded battery terminals. I know this sounds stupid but think about it, The battery circuit as enough current to power the radio but not the higher current demands like head lights. Clean the battery terminals of resistance causing corrosion and the car will start and your other ignition problems will go away also.
Glad to be of assistance. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating.
Thank you
Dennis
