Won't start, battery good, starter good, swapped relays and still won't start


Any issues with the ignition switch itself? They are mostly made of plastic pieces. With the exception of the actual cylinder. Also depending on how long you had the battery issue,it may have damaged the alternator. They tend to go hand in hand,unless caught early enough. The alternator gets overworked due to the weak battery.

Won't start


Multiple issues here??
Why did the motor quit??
Did you check the engine control fuse box for issues? It is next to the battery?
The is an imprinted 'map' under the lid for direction. Check all fuses and relays and post back.

I have a 2000 Subaru Outback and recently the ABS light came on while driving out to my parents'. When I got there, I called our mechanic and made an appointment for later in the week to have it...


Here is an idea. Check the connections between the battery and the car's ground and the starter. Then find the ground cable which connects the engine to the car and check the connections there as well. Often times odd ball electrical problems are caused by a faulty ground, especially when there is a starter issue. May help, costs nothing but a few moments of your time, and once in a dozen times it is the problem.

This could be an anti theft security issue. This happens all the time in GM's. The anti thefts are known to fail and cause the car to not start, stall while driving, or start for 1-5 seconds and then die. A good indication that the security is failing is if you see a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a padlock thru the window. This link explains the problem, symptoms, and some DO IT YOURSELF solutions. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

You could have a bad switch somewhere, like in the glove compartment, which wouldn't allow the light to turn off, or it could be a relay not allowing your interior lights to shut off when you close the door, or your headlight switch might be faulty, or anything like that. Start with checking all your lights in the car to see if something does not go out when the car is shut off and write back..

I start my truck, it runs great. As soon as I shut it off it dies


You are correct. If your battery tests good, then the starter is your problem.

My buicks battery has just died. When I jumped it it goes to turn over for a second with a click and then dies down, but all the lights come on. How do I know if its the starter alternator or battery


if the lights are bright and you hear a clicking and your heat blows good, the head lights are still real bright after trying to start a few time replace the starter (you can try to hit the starter with a hammer otr somthing heavy a few times and then try to start if it sounds better or starts replace the starter) if the battery goes dead try to jumpit if it starts then dies after a few min its the alt if it starts runs good and you let it run for about half hour shut it off and it wont restart rite away its the battery.
