Hi Castle, Check the fuse for the EFI system. If its good make sure there are no broken cables from the battery terminals. If some of the instrument panel lights work but not others, you may need to have the security system re coded. Regards John

    hi john without sounding to much of an idiot could you please tell me the location of the fuse many thanks

  • Hi Castle, Been trying to find something on the net regarding the fuse location but I must say sorry. however if you remove the fuse covers under the bonnet and check those inside the cabin the covers should have directories indicating which fuse is which and where it is located. The user manual should also have the guide. Sorry for not helping you with that information. Best regards John

SOURCE: mY 97 DODGE STRATUS WONT START, ITSGOT POWER AND

i believe if you remove the steering wheel upper and lower covers, there will be a button to push to allow the removal of the key..as for the no start, the battery light is on because of the alternator. Its faulty. the clicking sound could very well be the starter not having enough power reaching to turn it over again unless you put a power pack on it...try a brand new battery, test the alternator and removed the key..it is possible the the key not shutting off the way, is drawing power from the battery not allowing to start that way, causing what they call a "parasitic drain". charge battery, remove key. try that

Hi Meadors,

The clicking sound you heard most likely the starter solenoid engaging the starter. Only in this case it's failing to engage the starter. This is a classic symptom of a low battery. Here's why.

In a perfect world, when you turn the key to start:

  1. the solenoid is fed 12VDC which engages an electromagnetic coil inside it.
  2. A spring loaded steel piston inside this coil reacts to the magnetic field. It is pulled against the spring. By itself this sounds like a loud decisive CLICK.
  3. The movement of the piston simultaneously pushes the starter gear into the flywheel and sends power to the starter via heavy duty contacts. The starter draws a lot of power.
  4. The starter spins, turns the engine, the engine starts, life is good.
  5. When the key is released, the solenoid disengages, the spring pushes the piston back, the starter gear disengages from the flywheel.
In our world, when you turn the key to start:
  1. The solenoid which draws it's share of power engages as before. Click.
  2. As the starter tries to spin, the power available is insufficient. It draws all remaining power, there isn't enough left to keep the solenoid active and it turns off.
  3. Since the starter isn't drawing power anymore, the solenoid re-engages and the cycle starts over. Click.
  4. The cycle repeats. Click. A series of rapid clicks. Same page?
While a dead battery is the prime suspect, there can be other causes. Things to do:

  • Check belts, specifically on the alternator.
  • Terminal connections clean and tight.
  • In the 'Let's not over look the obvious' department: Battery voltage?
  • Get a jump. Try a jump start.
  • If a jump gets you going, it is either the battery not holding a charge or the alternator not providing one.
Even new batteries can be bad off the shelf. Especially if they have been on that shelf for a while. They may show the voltage but not the amps. This is called a 'Surface Charge'.

If you don't have a voltmeter, what you need to do now is visit an auto parts store (not a shop). Most (in the hope of making a sale) will provide free testing of batteries and charging systems.

What you need is called a "Load Test" on the battery. It simulates the load of an engine being started. This will confirm the battery is good or bad.

Then with the car running, they need to check the voltage to the battery (they will know this). If it's not above +13VDC, the alternator is bad or not connected correctly.

And if it doesn't start, what better place to be?

Let me know what they and you find out by commenting.
Best regards
Mike

SOURCE: clicking noise when trying to start car,battery is ok, wont start

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

SOURCE: chyrsler grand voyager wont start just clicks HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you mean by bump started? The lights and radio can work, but the battery may be too weak to crank the engine over. The best thing to do would be to drive it to a parts store, where most offer free check of battery and charging system (if you can drive it. If not, 1st remove battery and bring in for testing). The click you hear is classic low battery symptom, although it can be other things. So, 1st get the free test, and post results back here. How old is the battery? (and answer 2 questions!) Thanks

Where is the crank sensor located on a 2000 navigator? I've been told several different locations and after recent back surgery I don't feel like crawling all around to find it


run the fault codes and that will test the sensor for you. Check the immobiliser for correct operation. fault codes may say that it is a cam position sensor in which case check to see if the cam shaft is turning(broken timing belt)

What taking off on street to show off and car shuts off wont start


Hi Dang, Let's say that again. Dang, sounds as if your heavy foot has done some major damage. I think that you need to have the engine taken apart. If the timing belt jumped or a valve dropped, it will have caused serious damage to the cylinder head and possibly the pistons and connecting rod or rods. Get your pal or a shop to remove the tappet cover again and try rotating the engine by hand. What your pal will be looking for, is to see if the camshaft is moving as you turn the crankshaft. If it does turn line up the timing marks on the crankshaft and check to see if those on the cam are lined up with the relevant timing mark. If it does not turn the timing belt has been damaged. If it does turn and the timing marks do not align the belt has jumped. Unfortunately many Honda are fitted with what are called 'interference' engines, meaning that if the camshaft goes out of syncronisation with the crankshaft the valves will collide with the pistons, causing very serious damage. Depending where you are on this space ship of ours, you may be able to pick up a replacement engine and have that fitted if the damage has become too extensive, or you might like to learn something about engines and what happens when you put your foot down. If you would like to do a rebuild, and if it is needed, let me know and I'll do my best to guide you through it. Let me know what you discover and we'll take it from there. Regards John

Code p1391 99 grand cherokee limited 4.7 wont start


Try unplugging the cam sensor and then try to start. The cam sensor is on the underside of the passenger head towards the front of the engine. Is is accessible from under the vehicle. If it starts replace the cam sensor. Iffy it still does not start replace the crank sensor and the cam sensor. The crank sensor is located on the passenger side of the engine block behind the starter. The starter will need to be remove to acces the sensor. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!
