Check that the battery connections are tight and secure. If yes, check the starter motor connectors and check current to the starter while the ignition key is turned. If there is no current, try wiring the starter directly to the battery. If it turns, then the problem is in the wiring or it could be the starter motor fuse. If the starter does not turn, remove the starter and take it to an auto parts store for testing.

2013 Hyundai Elanta will not start, turn key , new battery, nothing, all lights n dash work, could it be the alarm system OEM


If you have a second key, try that one. Sometimes 1 key will unlock, 1 key will start. If not it would be the anti theft or security system disabling the ignition module. Which is why it won't even try to turn over.

My Ram will not start or turnover. The dome light is on and head lights will rspond. When key is turned on no reaction from idicatiors on dash.


I am thinking that what you experienced is your alternator going out. You will have to have that checked which any auto parts store can do that for you. You will have to fully charge your battery after you replace the alternator.

How to find an electrical disturbance in 1998 ford expedition


Normally this condition is the result of a poor body ground connection. Testing for this can be deceiving. At the static(nothing on) condition, testing can show a good ground. However when a circuit is excited, it has a determined resistance and a set current flow. If the ground connection to this or a branch circuit is loose, corroded, or broken wire. This will allow just enough connection to show as being good, but not good enough to complete the circuit with the required amount of connection when energized.

I have a 1983 oldsmobile 98 and the dashboard lights wont turn off how can I turn them off so my battery wont die


Is it the illumination lights? If so, that sounds like a bad headlight switch-when you put the park lights on (first click), it turns on the dash illumination lights.
If it is warning lights or other lights on the dash, it could be a bad ignition switch.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

95 hundai accent wont start


The wiring diagrams for the 95 Accent do not show any OEM (original equipment manufacture) 'anti-theft' systems.... this does not preclude the possibility that an After Market system was installed.
