2009 jeep commandeer wont start, when I turn the key there is no sound, lights wont turn on and is that wasn't enough the key gets stuck in the ignition. any ideas?


it wont crank, no A/t car starts unless cranked first. (a key point)

fix head lights first. this is a feature in all cars.

that is SIMPLE and HOT all the time

they must work at all times and is the top way to diagnose

electric problems



you have a dead battery,.

only why remains.

i bet it cranks jumper cable started, call AAA or buy some cables.

or swap in a charged battery , or heck charge yours, buy a charger.

check fuses.

check battery lugs for green death?

check battery voltage. at 12.6vdc, if not charge the battery

if the battery continues to disgharge.

that is called phantom drains, or bad battery .

or the alternators is bad.(system)

once started the battery volts must be 13.3.to 15v, if not the charge system is bad ,(fuses, belts slipping and lots more possibles)

Tip

How to tell if the battery is bad.


A bad battery can either take charged but dishcharge itself or it wont take full charge or it will charge but doesn't provide enough current to crank the engine.
Even new battery can be damaged if left uncharged for a period of time. If the car will not crank because the battery has been drained maybe by playing the radio too long. Jump start the car and let it charge. Or even better use a battery charger. Do not wait till the next day to jump start it because the battery will inquire damage. If the car was ok then all of the sudden it wont start in the morning and you know there is nothing in the car draining it, That means the battery has an internal short. It needs replacement. It will charge again after boosting but it will give you same problem over and over. Whats more the computer can be damaged by too much jump starting. It can also be damaged by a bad battery. If your car wont start and it has roughly 12.6 volts which is the voltage for a fully charged battery, that means the battery is also bad. In eliminating the battery as the culprit all connection must be clean and dry. Grease on the post used to prevent corrsion can lead to poor contacts.

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

I cant get my car to start what do i do?


No crank? Do you have access to jumper cables? Try connecting your car to another car with a fully charged battery. Look up proper procedure with google. If it starts, try charging the battery. Let us know what happens.

Car wont start has charged battery lights and radio come on new starter. drainging battery even though the battery is fully charged its reading its not tempature gauge reading hot but its not runn


If the problem began when (or soon after) installing the new starter, start checking there. Ensure that all cables to the starter are tight. As a second possibility, if the new starter was actually a rebuilt replacement, the solenoid could be faulty. (I went through three rebuilt starters on my son's truck until we got one that worked properly.)

It won't start: new battery, have lights, it just clicks when you turn the ignition switch


you mean it wont crank, it must crank to start.
1: bad starter system
2: weak battery even a new battery can be weak.
if you dont charge it first.
or if it starts ok then wont later, that means cars charge system failure.

can you jump start engine? with jumper cables.
that be a big clue there, proving starter works but battery was weak.
if the battery is fully charged.
you can hot wire the starter solenoid, (tiny terminal)
if car cranks now, the key start wire is failing.
A/T or M/T tranny? both use different path here....??????

if you cant hot wire it, then that means the stater is bad
the cables bad or the battery is not really connected.
or possible the engine is seized, can you hand turn over the engine at the front crank bolt (CW , facing rear, in neutral)
if not motor is seized.
some times even the starter and rig gear can be seized.
the starter can be bench tested. too.

I jumped car off it crunk on its own fora day,then batt went dead again,this time it won't jump off. It wants to crank but won't turn over.


not sure what you said but.
seems the battery is discharging,? 12.6v is fully charged,
own a voltmeter?
try a good loaned battery , does it start the car,?
i think you meant?
i can jumper cable start my car at any time. (off another running car)
but after running my car, the battery discharges and it will not crank at all. right?
this means ,the charging system on your car is bad.
if the starter cranks great, then the engine is flooded or is in great need of a tune up (sparkplugs etc)
if flooded try the super secret in the op guide, crank with throttle wide open , this magic trick cuts all fuel injection allowing the flooding
to purge away, and eventual starting.
my guess 2 is the car wont start, so you crank the battery flat
you jumper start it and it runs. (luck)
then day 2, same deal cranks ok but wont start.. ever tune up the engine?

2002 suziki XL-7 will not start


The starter solenoid has been known to stick on these cars. If you jump start the extra battery will free it up till next time (right) If this is the case replace solenoid or the whole starter. You can also bang the solenoid with a wooden broom handle if it will reach the starter not sure you can see if from above. Ignition switch would be my second item to check closer. But starter should probably fix it. When you say battery is fully charged it should have a voltage also around 12.8.

Car wont start


Fully charge battery remove and take to a shop, bench test the battery. If its not the battery remove the starter and bench test it, its either the battery or the starter.
