check your battery first, then check your ignition switch, then check your spark plugs and wires.

My audi doesnt start


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action please charge the battery fully. If the battery is weak, the starter can't kick the flywheel. It takes an amount of force to kick the flywheel that's why the battery must be strong.

If battery is fully charged and vehicle still won't start, the problem can be on the starter itself or on the ignition switch. I strongly suggest that you have it looked at by an expert auto electrician just to be sure on what to replace.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

About 3 weeks ago, the battery in my 2001 chevy lumina died. I wasn't able to drive it for about a week and went out today to do so and the lights came on, dimly, and the car wouldn't start. The battery...


Well, I would charge the battery with a plug in battery charger for about 3 days to make sure it is fully charged.

If the battery doesn't take a charge, then I would replace the battery.

Make sure the connections are shiny, clean and tight at the contact points.

After the battery is charged, then I would have it tested for starting/charging at your local parts store or Sears or Walmart or other battery retailer.

Remember, batteries only last 3 years on average, so if charging it doesn't solve the starting problem, then I would consider buying a new battery for the vehicle.

Good luck on this repair.

Will not start in cold weather. Engine will crank and try to start and started all summer but last spring and now that the weather has turned turned cold. It will start first thing in the morning and it...


Get your battery voltage checked.The cold weather will reduce the strength of your battery. The starter solenoid is trying to engage the starter but it doesn't have enough power from the battery to make it happen.If the battery voltage is low then get it recharged .The voltage of fully charged battery will show near to 12 volts.--------------That's it.

Have your alternator tested.Your car will not stay running if the alternator is not producing enough power to keep the battery charged.Also have your battery tested and fully charged.Make sure your cables are in good shape.

I have a 1996 ford taurus my car will not start in cold weather


you can jump it with a running car, then take it to somewhere like Autozone which will check the charging system and battery to see if there is a problem. Also sometimes you need to remove the battery cables and clean both them and the battery terminals.

It was about -30 outside and i tried to start my jetta, it turned over a couple of times but now it wont do anything. everything else works but the starter wont turn the engine over


These engines require a LOT of amperage from the battery. A battery's amperage output is severely decreased in the cold weather. If your battery is old, it may not have the power to turn the engine over. Your solutions are (1) warm the engine to allow for easier turn-over and (2) put a charger on the battery to keep it warm in cold weather. The first can be accomplished by having your dealer install a soft-plug block heater. As to charging the battery, be sure the charger is one that monitors the battery's charge and turns itself off when the battery is fully charged.
If this does not help, then your cold cranking may have caused your starter to begin to fail. Good Luck and stay warm!
