SOURCE: lights,horn work but car wont start

Troubleshoot the starter. If your battery is good, then you WILL have power...the lights will work, horn, etc, but....if the starter is toast...you need a starter.

SOURCE: pass key stays on1995 buick roadmaster car want crank

Short circuit probably not the problem. The pass key system is not being disabled making the car inoperable, thats why it will not crank. Either you are using a key that does not have the correct resistance(black chip in key) or if it is the same key you always used then the pass key sensor went bad. I believe it is in the steering column and a qualified mechanic could help you there.

Are you saying the engine cranks but won't start, or the engine won't crank ?
If the engine does not crank, you would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch as well as the ground connections.

Is the battery dead? Check your battery condition and connections. Check your starter fuse from there. Check the connection to the starter then progress to the ignition side of the concern

Replaced the fuel pump on 97 dodge mini caravan now motor wont crank like the battery is dead. tried jumping it - nothing. All lights work bright! What did I do wrong?


I would check the starter for voltage first - there is a starter relay that is grounded by the PCM. If the ASD relay is faulty the pcm won't have power. You should have battery power to the starter and power on the solenoid when you turn the key to start.

My car won't crank, lights work, horn blow and


Starter not turning over?
Controlled by integrated starter selenoid. SOMETIMES, tapping the starter will cause the selenoid to operate.
Assume that voltage (12Vdc) is getting to the starter when the key is in the start position (take 2 people and a voltmeter to check it).

Won't crank. Turn key and nothing happens. I turned the lights on and they worked so I don't think it is the battery. anything??


sounds like a faulty starter, if you can get some help have someone hold the key over to start
you should get voltage at the solenoid trigger wire (thin wire) if you do give starter a tap and it should spin.
if you have an alarm system the starter kill may be activated.

Battery good. lights , radio works. turn switch to crank nothing happens


Tap on the starter solenoid with a hammer when someone else is trying to start the car, if that works you need a starter. If that doesn't work you will need to start checking for power and ground at the starter and working your way back through the ignition system.

My 96 ford winstar will not start. It will not evan try to turn over. The battery checks out ok. Could it be the starter? I have tried taping on the starter while turning key, still no luck.


turn on head lights while cranking if lights stay on during cranking power is good...make sure gear shift is in park..next thing i would do is check the power on the small wire at the starter during cranking..if you have power on small wiring and nothing happens bad starter... if no power need to test the neutral safety switch and ignition switch
