I am guessing that you put in a new battery drove it for a day at most and went out the next day and it wont start. Well if this is true then you will need an alternator, your battery is not being charged. Your car can start a run without this but you wouldn't get that far and eazy way to figure this out is either charge your battery or have a friend jump, be sure to let it charge for 3-5 min. before trying to start.
If it starts than remove the jumper cables and let the car tun for another 2-3 min and turn it off. If you cant restart it than you will need a new alternator

Check the battery. Make sure both connections are clean and tight. If they have acid/crud on them,..use baking soda and water to clean it off. If it still doesnt work,...time to get a battery.

My mechanic has just put a new starter motor on my car, it's been sat there for a while, and even with the new starter, the engine won't turn over, please help. Cheers


What is the battery amperage? It is possible that the starter is defective as well even though it is new. If you dont have enough power in the battery it will not turn over. Could be a starter solenoid as well depending on the make model...

well if you have a dvom/voltmeter check the power at the starter terminals. the main terminal should have power all the time the key wire should have power only when the key is turned to crank engine. if you have power at both then i would start looking at grounds

My 88 dakota will not stay on!


it sounds like the new idle you put in is set too low so the truck is getting barely enough gas to start and keep running try turning up the air fuel mixture and it should be better hope this helped

Car doesnt start with new battery using the key


try resetting the security system, follow this procedure.
PASS LOCK RESET GM CARS 1999 UP
1) Put the key in the ignition and turn to the "ON" position. Leave it that way for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes turn the key and take it out. Repeat this process (2) more times (3 times, 30 minutes total) This should reset the passlock system to recognize your key.
