SOURCE: car want start factor security light flashing and

The factory security light will remain on - this is a standard feature indicating the car is dead.
First, unplug the hazard fuze in the engine bay (this will reset the ecu and remove the flashing)

Next, replace the battery with a new one (or one with proper charge) - keep in mind a small battery will not do anything for these cars, the engines require a lot to push them over (it isnt a honda)
*Make sure to clean the positive and negative battery cables from acid

Then just start it up :)

SOURCE: lights work, car will not

sounds like a bad starter solenoid. -- you can try and jump from one side of the solenoid to the other and see if the car will start then. or just replace the solenoid with a new one and this will solve your problem. now the solenoid and the starter are one complete unit and need to be replaced together.

2002 jeep liberty sport will not start. It won,t even turn over. drove it yesterday no problems. after 1 hour tried to start didn,t work Can you help?


Have you tried to jump started ? If your jeep starts when giving it a jump, you may have a bad battery. Check fuses for fuel and ignition systems. If your battery is bad, could be because the alternator is not charging it. Might want to have this component tested.

Why won't my 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara start?


ill answer for NO ELECTRICAL POWER :
sure and is easy with any DMM meter, got one? any $20 DMM.
my guess;1
engine will not crank
dash lamps out.
head lights out. dead.
post systems of electrical system , all parts that work and those that dont work, and problem is easy.
cleaned battery terminals.
tried borrowed battery that reads, 12.6vdc ? (charged is 12.6)
2012 that is in warranty car.... ?
my guess on 2012
jumping a car, that is battery jump starting.
a battery can short, and no jump start on earth will start shorted battery in car. but does lay down some big sparks, or burns up cheap walmart cables.
if the car will not crank, say just that, my starter motor will not crank
jump started from live running other car.
if true then make sure headlights work , if they dont work fix that first.
HL must always work, even keys in pocket.
best is to put a fully charged battery in the car, jump starting can cause
surges that can damage sensitive electronic$$$, do jumps as a desperate measure,
with a charged battery,
1: Head lights work, no fix that , use voltmeter
2: cranks robustly.
no , wiggle shifter lever, (on A/T cars the park switch blocks cranking) On M/T the clutch blocks cranking.
with any dMM
measure battery voltage before crank and during.
12.6v good. reseted.
cranking.
0 to 10v bad (weak battery or shorted starter motor)
11 and above good. and must crank, if not , starter is bad.
to prove starter is bad, check voltage at starter solenoid coil wire lug.
it must be at 11v cranking , below 8v it chatters, and fails.
if at 0v cranking this lug that means the Key start line is failing.
A/T switch not closes, or bad ignition switch.

If the engine will not crank, and the battery is charged, you would need to know if the starter is getting power from the battery and from the key switch thru that neutral safety switch.
Have you checked the starter power yet ?

Car makes a click click but won't turn over..It has been cold


If battery is flat (discharged) that could be one of the problems. Charge the battery or try jump starting from another vehicle, if possible. If it still don't start after trying those two things, it's probably the starter gone bad.
If it starts after charging or jumping, have your battery load tested and
your alternators output checked. Make sure you didn't leave something on for example headlights or something plugged into accessory outlet, could be the reason battery went flat.
In a nut shell, one of these caused this. Bad battery, bad alternator, bad starter or something draiedn battery. Hope this helps.

Car won't start. I tried to jump it with my other car and still wont work. It makes the electrical noise of trying but thats it. I suspect is the battery, eventough I change it last year. However, I'm


Hi Carmelogo, It would sure help to know more about your problem. First question is what car is it? Secondly when you say it makes electrical sound, what do you mean? Is the starter motor turning, and if so, is it tuning too slowly or just clicking? If it's any of the those I would suggest cleaning the battery terminals, especially if it fails when jumped. If the terminals are oxidized they will need to be removed from the battery and cleaned or maybe even replaced. If the vehicle then starts with a jump and later fails after taking it for a run replace the battery

Car will not start


A simple jump start with battery cables should get the car started and recharge the battery. If you don't like dealing with battery cables, there are products that attach from inside the car using the cigarette lighter to jump start the car that work very well.
