    I have had the air suspension removed and replaced, so this cannot be the problem. Thanks for your immediate response though.

This is normally in the trunk but also do you have air ride? if you do then check the air suspension sensor cause if this is bad it can drain the battery because the car is trying to lift up and it puts a drain on the battery but as I said on the phone get marine battery ends and some round loop take the ends off your battery and put these on and all you have to do is just disconnect them at night until you get it fixed this is what I have done to mine

    first of all if you replaced all the stuff you listed but the fuel cut off switch would only come on if someone hits the back bumper or backed into something get some starter fluid and spray a little in the throttle body while someone is trying to start the car to see if it starts and if it starts and runs until it runs the starter fluid out check the fuel pump relay under the hood before you change the pump and also when was the last time you changed the fuel filter and if you do all this and it does not start you may be looking at a crank sensor

My 95 maxima wouldn't start one day I started by

My best guess without being able to see the car is that the battery hard wiring is faulty.

You need to check both the condition, routing and security of the battery negative and positive leads.
You also need to check the security and condition of any additional earth leads which connect the engine to the chassis/body.

A few days ago my serptene belt flew off. I replaced the next day, then i had to replace the tensioner pulley. I started the truck and every thing seemed fine. Then i turned the truck off and inpected...

you could have an alternator problem, I am wandering if the serptene belt is on properly or tight. if the belt is slipping and not turning the alternator pulley then it will not charge you battery and if you drive it the new battery will go dead and the alternator is not charging it so it will not start.
i would charge the battery and start the car and watch the belt and the alternator and see if the pulley is turning, they will also make a squelling sound if loose.
hope this helps

I have a 01 Lincoln Continental that wouldnt start. After paying $69 to the repair shop they told me that the alternator and belt are working like they should but the battery wont hold a charge. I took the battery to Sears (6 month old Diehard) and after a day and a half they said the battery is good. Now the car starts each time but the lights(inside and out) all flicker and when you press the gas they flicker more? After about 5 minutes the flickering stops. What could be the problem?

Went to work... everything was fine.. came out 9 hours later.. wouldn't start... jumped it.. got it home.. tried to start it..won't... bad battery? alternator? needs a new serpentine belt?

Replace battery .Start car warm to normal, check alternator by removing battery negitave cable, if the engine quits running replace alternator if it keeps running the alternator is fine. As far as the serpentine belt goes it will not prevent the car from starting.However if the belt looks like it needs to be replaced then it might be a good idea to do so.Good Luck.

Check the battery first, if it is ok you probably have a bad starter. If the battery is drained, you need to charge and test the battery and alternator.
