Usually if the battery is dead, you will hear clicking. If the battery is good then I would check any Starter fuses/relays. If they are good then I would check for power to the starter solenoid. You can find many youtube videos on how to check this.

SOURCE: car wont start

I think you have a bad fuseable link. Also,
I suspect your alternator is not charging your battery.

You have power with the new one, and it ran for the 20 minutes on your old battery. There also may be a
starter relay unit under the hood.

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

SOURCE: 2001 ford focus: only 1 headlight works on low

start by getting the car to run...If you played with the fuses and battery, this is where to start. Clean the battery terminals and tighten them after cleaning...test the fuses-the tester is about ten bucks at most autoparts stores...If after that no start, then you will need to break out a multimeter and find the short circuit.

My 2002 Buick century wont (crank) turn over ..jumped solenoid,it turns over but won't start ..checked all fuses and relays.. good happened after attempting to rewire front turn signal broken plug


Turn signal plug should have nothing to do with it not starting. Disconnect the battery for 10 to 15 minutes. Then try again with the key.
When you jumped the solenoid, it would start because the key may have not been in the run position. So the Security light was on, and did not energize the fuel pump.

Disconnect the battery as stated.

1990 Buick Century Limited wont start, but makes a click sound under hood on drivers side when you turn the key. But no battery noise. Battery measures a 11.50-12.00 . 154xxx miles Thank you


Check for power at the starter on the large wire. There should be battery voltage at all times. Next check for power on the small wire at the starter. There should be twelve volts with the key in the crank position. If both of those check out you need a starter.
