First make sure you have the battery charge and then check the cowl pack to make sure you have spark and if you do and has done all of that also make sure:) you have gas in the car and test the crank sensor also.

My 2002 Jetta TDI wont Crank


Check fuses first. Crank/start fuse. IF that's good. Find the starter and hit it with a hammer or rod/pry bar as some one tries to start it. If it starts, replace the starter. It has a dead spot in it. If it doesn't, try jumping the small wire to the big wire. It will arc, but if it doesn't turn replace the starter. If it does turn, check the small wire for power when turning the key to start. No power, go to the crank fuse and check for power when trying to start, still no power. Then it is a break in the wire from there to the ignition switch. Or the ignition switch is bad.

Why wont Nissen 1.6 petrol Juke drive after stalling in morning for a few days. AA man said computer not showing a fault!


with nissan there is a procedure that requires a screw in the side of the ECM to be set before it reads out codes
it is not just a case of plugging in the scanner and reading codes
from your description it could be faulty crank/cam sensor_wiring to both or either-
or a failing ignition control module/coil from a component overheating and switching off
what ever ,there will be a fault code

Sounds like your alternator is not working like it should and causing your battery to lose power or it could be your starter.

I have a 91 honda accord LX and it been sitting for bout a year i just pull it back out n it been runing good but now its starting to cutt back why going down the highway n lose speed i change the wires...


Try replacing the fuel filter. Change your sparkers too, and MAKE SURE YOU GAP THEM PROPERLY. You can get a tool to do that at any auto parts store for about $1. I believe the accord needs to be gapped at .039 inches.

It sounds like your alternator is bad. East way to confirm, take it to local auto parts store (IE: Autozone, Advance, etc) and have them do a FREE charging system test. Couple of thoughts; you have two new batteries and your poor alternator has to work twice as hard. After you put new batteries in, you've been running on straight battery power. Alternator normally runs all your electronics and recharges battery(s) but if Alt has gone "south" then you're on straight battery power.

2004 ford taurus idles ruff and no pickup engine light comes on,i can reset the engine light but it still come back on any help.


Best thing to do is take it to Auto zone or a parts store that will read the codes. Sounds like you have a bad coil pack on one or more of the spark plugs. Getting the codes will pin point the problem.

the problem is probably one of the battery cables. check for looseness and corrosion. especially at the positive battery connection where the two cables are stacked.
