Had the same problem where I could go out and jump in and the truck wouldn't do anything. Wait a couple of minutes and it would start right up. Battery terminals were corroded and not getting a sufficient connection.

Why my car stopped running and wont start?

no man on earth can answer this, nobody.

2005 caddy, engine not stated, even though its engine related.

so, what are the, why not post them?

its like telling Doctor im sick and hurt 14 places but refusing to point.

post the DTCs, please. or its all a crap shoot.

Generic answer for no starts. but cranks over fast.

  1. out of fuel.

  2. battery weak. (not charged to 12.6vdc rested and parked)

  3. Fuses blown. test them.

  4. cluster CEL lamp out key on, ECU dead, check fuses.

  5. Engine flooding, may start next day. (crank WOT to clear it)

  6. lost engine compression.

  7. lost spark. to any or all cylinders (tune ups skipped)

  8. Lost fueling

  9. each of above have simple tests. ask if want to learn them.

Parking and driving light stay on

Head lights work , parked, and are not dim.
i turn key, the dash warning lamps all glow for the lamp test
this is a must, do they>? and the CEL glows, IT MUST.
if all that works
we then turn the key to start. and the starter motor cranks fast
and Sounds normal for starter. does it.
the the engine fails to start, and sustain running. right>?
all the above true?
we then check for lost spark. (with a dream of engine good..bla bla0
it is good, on all cylinders. but i check spark timing cranking and
its bad, cam has lost time , cam belt or chain, im too lazy to look up.
spark timing is good.
so i check spark plugs tips.
oops , owner skipped the mandatory 60,000 mile tune up. they are at
new sparks and it still wont start. sparks good. sparks dry. not floodihng
so i try TEST FUEL, i spray some in the plenum or intake.
and bam it runs for 3 seconds and stops, good ,this proves
engine is good, and spark is good.
just lost fuel.
so , can you get this far?
if yes, we can work lost fuel or flood, never of which i can predict.

Truck wont start

If you have no fuel pressure at the engine when key is on, the pump is not coming on. Check fuel pump fuse, check fuel pump relay (relay should click when key turned to on-put finger lightly on it and feel for click when someone turns key to on). If no click, signal from computer may be lost, ground for relay may be lost, or relay may be bad. If it clicks, wiring from relay to pump may have failed, or the relay's main power source may not be there at relay-find the fuse link or maxi-fuse that powers that relay. One terminal at relay should be hot at all times-can check for that with a test light.
If pump is working and you do have fuel pressure, you will need to check injector circuit. Post back if questions, or need further help.

I have a 1998 Suzuki Esteem, I just changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, spark plugs and plug wires. Car still wont start

what engine? 1.6L SOHC or 1.8L DOHC, learn what motor you have before asking for help, and state it clearly.
You did this all backwards and guessing is very costly , im so sorry you didnt, ask how to trouble shoot this simple problem.
It is simple , no matter what is the fueling, EFI or carb.
What you failed to do is :
is if it is, flooding or staving for fuel?
Instant start will start both, for a short time. so is not telling you what failure you have.
I think the motor is good, (only you know that. or used a compression guage to learn that) but if it sounds good, with test fuel, then can assume it ok ( a very hands on concept that).
if the spark tips are all dry all 4 , not just 1. then its starving for fuel.
This engine has 4 INJECtors ON 1.6l AND 1.8.
they can, clog or leak. it takes careful testing to determine what they are doing and are well hidden, so you must learn to read spark tips. x4
Lets pretend that all 4 are dry.
I check fuel pressure and it good,
if not the the Fuel pressure regulator can be bad. (way cheaper that pump + hard labor)
The ecu cuts all fuel under 2 condition (software / features)
1: crash and burn, the ECU cuts fuel the moment it THINKS spark is lost.
2: while cranking it cuts fuel if spark is lost or the throttle is held at WOT, wide open throttle.
That mean you have to check 2 inputs to the ECU if all 4 injectors are
dead and fuel pressure is near 30psi.
those 2 inputs are.
1: TPS, throttle angle, not hear 4volts. (.5 to 1 is normal)
2: a dead tachmeter line. this is how the ECU sees if spark is good.
hint, spark can be 100% good and tacho is dead.
how this happens varies by unstated engine type.

1988 gmc k1500 reset computer now truck wont start

Other than holding the throttle open until the computer re-learns the throttle position, I doubt the computer has lost anything needed for the truck to start.
Check for spark at the plugs and fuel pressure at the injectors like any other no start issue.
