Engine Cranks But Will Not Start Basic Checks:
A. Test Fuses. Test both under hood power distribution center and the fuse panel under dash. This is done with a test light tool. The test light should illuminate on both sides of the fuse, if not the fuse has failed and needs to be replaced.

B. Testing Fuel Pressure Test for proper fuel pressure with a test gauge on the fuel rail, most throttle body injection cars (TBI) are between 13 psi and 17 psi. and most (DPI) direct port inject systems are between 40 psi and 55 psi. If no or little fuel pressure is observed and there is 12 volt power present the fuel pump, the fuel pump needs replacing.

C. Checking Timing Belt Test for compression by removing a spark plug and insert a compression gauge. Crank the engine over about 5 seconds the gauge should read between 125 psi and 165 psi, if no compression is observed remove front engine cover to inspect timing belt or chain. Crank engine to observe cam rotation, if the cam does not rotate the timing belt or chain has failed. (note: if the timing belt drives the water pump it is best to replace the water pump at this time)

D. Test for Injector Pulse Remove injector connector to insert injector test light (node) or volt meter. Observe light flash or gauge pulse while cranking. If light/voltmeter doesn't respond, an ignition distributor/crank angle sensor (CKS) or an ignition module is most likely your problem.

E. Test for Ignition Spark Remove spark plug wire, insert an extra spark plug into end of wire, rest spark plug next to a ground source then crank engine. You should observe a blue spark between the spark plug gap and ground source. If no spark is observed, an ignition coil, ignition rotor or spark plug wires might have failed. (always keep hands away from engine when cranking)

when you changed the parts did you have the codes cleared ? as if the comp stored it then it will return and when you put new parts on it took the comp time to test and display new changes.

I would try to get that $1400 back if it doesn't work right. Contact the district and regional managers for your dealership to see what can be done to rectify the situation.

It sounds to me like the clicking is due to a battery that is dying.

New keys have to be programmed by the dealer.

I would not give up on the dealer, just try to pursue other options with the money you have already paid.

Nobody should have to pay $1400 for service and not get a desirable result.

So, I would swallow my pride and take it back to have it repaired under warranty, if this is an option provided to you.

TCS LIGHT AND FEELS LIKE A TRANSMISSION PROBLEM


No it's the Tork Converter lockup Switch and if the fluid is not burned the tork converter may be going out, sometimes they do not replace the tork converter when rebuilding the transmissions, sometimes you save $200.00 sometimes you lose it. Check fluid level and see if it's brown if it is and smells like onions have the transmission oil and filter changed and have them flow test the transmission oil cooler. If it is plugged it could cause this as well.
