My opel corsa 99 cut out today and now it wont even turn over jst a little click when the key is turned the battery seems fine lights and radio come on when the ignition is on but if i push start it will...


Hi just because the lights work does not always mean the battery is ok. It takes a lot more power to crank the starter.
Generally that clicking will be either the battery or the starter motor. I would suggest if you can try jump leads and if it starts problem is battery, If not problem is most likely starter motor. For a possible third thing to check Make sure the battery leads are tight.
Cheers Mike;-)

Put new baterry no crank nothing ;was diriving every day until today seemed the battery was low checked it out no good .replaced it with new one lights,radio come on but no crank .check fuses ok


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I would say you have a bad starter or starter solenoid. If your ignition fuse has not blown, that checks out. You have a good battery and connection cause the lights work. Find your starter and try hitting it a few times. Don't be afraid to hit a good lick or two. Then try to start it. It may catch and get you where you need to be fore now. It may be completely dead though. That is where you need to check next.

2003 focus won't start


Even though the radio works the battery is your problem. It doesnt have enough juice to start the car. you will have to take it out of the car and have it tested to make sure. Any auto parts store will test it free of charge. Poor quality cables will not jump a battery with that low of power. I learned that the hard way with my impala.

Cadillac Seville with new battery won't start, won't even fire up!!


Could be your alternator. If you can get it started again. Try to have the alternator checked out.

Car wont start, lights will come on and radio and windows. doesn't appear to be battery, but it also wont jump off either. is this the starter. makes no noise what so ever when you turnt he key


This exact same thing happened to me, it can be a number of problems. You might not have enough battery charge to get the car going since the fuel pump in this car is electronic, my car did not start but when i took it to a mechanic thinking the battery was perfect because lights and all were on they jump started it and it started then immediately died, i also had a choke pull off failure, leaks in my carburetor, and the float was to heavy causing flooding. 185 dollars later and a rebuilt carburetor my car had a smooth idle and turned on immediately after turning ignition. but then to find out my alternator was bad hence the battery only having enough power for the radio and lights.so in short try jumping the car even though the battery seems good, check your carb or get it checked by a mechanic, then check if your alternator is ok. if i waited for two days without attempting to start car then trying it would start if i held the ignition and pushed the gas pedal down until it started. (see if thats the case for you) my guess is you carb, battery, and alternator.
