This sounds like the Ignition Starter Switch. It should be on the left side of the steering column.....right under the steering wheel. If you go to an auto parts store they should be able to show you what the part looks like.

Thanks,
Andrew

My work truck does this as well. Pulling out the nozzle doesnt work either. I know it sounds wierd, but try turning the nozzle sideways or upside down when filling the tank. Works well with my work truck.....

03 eclipse making noises in cold weather


First you need to find the source that is causing noise. On cold weather is very normal engine belts or belts idle pulley bearings or belt tension-er to make noise, especially when they are old. Also power steering pump too especially if the oil is very old.

My car doesnt want to start up right away in the morning. Almost like its really cold out and it takes it a min. The rest of the day its fine runs great. Any ideas?


Reason 1 - Gasoline, like any other liquid, evaporates less when it is cold.You have seen this -- if you pour water onto a hot sidewalk it will evaporate a lot faster than it will from a cooler place like a shady sidewalk. When it gets really cold, gasoline evaporates slowly so it is harder to burn it (the gasoline must be vaporized to burn). Sometimes you will see people spray ether into their engines in cold weather to help them start -- ether evaporates better than gasoline in cold weather.

Reason 2 - Oil gets a lot thicker in cold weather. You probably know that cold pancake syrup or honey from the refrigator is a lot thicker than hot syrup or honey. Oil does the same thing. So when you try to start a cold engine, the engine has to push around the cold, gooey oil and that makes it harder for the engine to spin. In really cold places people must use synthetic motor oils because these oils stay liquid in cold temperatures.


Re ason 3 - Batteries have problems in cold weather, too. A battery is a can full of chemicals that produce electrons The chemical reactions inside of batteries take place more slowly when the battery is cold, so the battery produces fewer electrons. The starter motor therefore has less energy to work with when it tries to start the engine, and this causes the engine to crank slowly.

All three of these problems can make it impossible to start an engine in really cold weather. People either keep their cars in heated garages or use "block heaters" to get around these problems. A block heater is a little electric heater that you plug into the wall to keep the engine warm.
i hope it was convince answers

My jeep wont start in cold weather even when it is plugged in. turns over but wnt fire. starts good when the weather warms up. replaced distributor. new battery. new coil.


Sounds like you need to have your ecu repaired. I've seen this problem on 91-98 Grand Cherokees due to components inside the ecu slowly failing, and really acting up when the weather is colder. A good indicator as to if you have this problem is if your check engine light takes a while to light up, on the dash, when you turn the ignition on, before trying to crank the engine. If the light is delayed in your jeep, you need to repair the ecu.

I have a 1999 Chrysler Cirrus. I drove it yesterday with no problems at all. I go to start my car this morning and it wont start. Its turns over just fine it dont even sound like there is a problem but...


try the spare key in case its the chip in the key playing up for whatever reason if spare key doesnt work then check to see if the immobilisor light is on ,Now also of course if the temperature is too cold what can happen in extreme circumstances is a micro chip malfunction where they fail in the cold and if this is the case then push car into teh garage and let it warm up gently and it should start ,been getting this a lot with other things as well because of the cold and cheap chinese micro chips so your not the only one.Also keep car keys away from any electro magnetic source like tv screens and body scanners magnets and most of all a tesla induction battery charger ,be surprised how many people try to recharge their remote car keys on o0ne of these type of charger .

I have a 2002 dodge stratus. I bought it in the


It sounds like either the battery is bad or the terminals are corroded and not allowing for a good connection which would cause a click. There also could corroded body ground which should T off the battery connection and bold directly to the body of the car. I would clean up terminals and check ground connections. Good Luck
