If the dash lights go out when you try to turn over the engine, then it is either a bad battery or the contacts for the power supply are not good. In which case, check that you have good contacts of the battery clamps and also check the earth cable to the engine from the chassis. Also check to see if the cable connections are good at the starter motor. If all this is good, then the engine should start to turn over.
Another thing, is if it has automatic transmission, then it could be the park /neutral switch.
But, if it is automatic transmission and the dash lights go out when you try to turn the engine over, then it must be as i said at first.

Hope this helps

Sound like it might be the neutral safety switch solenoid going bad or sticking. This switch opens (denies current to) the starter circuit when the transmission is in any gear but Neutral or Park on automatic transmissions.If you find that you have to move the shifter away from park or neutral to get the car to start, it usually means that this switch needs adjustment.

I have Chevy Cobalt 2006. Won't start. Ket appears stocked can't pull out. What's the problem?


A battery indicating only 5.6 volts will never start that vehicle. Battery voltage should at least be 12.3 volts if you want to reliably start the car.

The mountaineer won't start. When i turn on the headlights the lights on the dash board goes dim and the gauges be moving fast.


Sounds like you have a low voltage problem.Take a volt meter and battery voltage first it should be 12-12.7 volts not running and key off.Then start engine and check the voltage coming out of the alternator it should be 13-14.7 volts.If one of these are not within these specs then replace which everone that is bad.

Won;t crank


Hi, if the car engine fails to crank, there is a fault in one of the components in the battery/ignition/starter circuit. Low battery (Check battery voltage, recharge if low, or jump start with another vehicle or battery charger). Bad starter relay/solenoid (Check for voltage at relay, if relay has voltage but there is no "click" when key is turned to start, replace relay). Bad ignition switch (Check to see if voltage reaches starter relay/solenoid when turn to start. If not, check for open P/N switch and brake or clutch pedal switch. Replace ignition switch if defective).

2000 Cavalier won't start, making fast clicking sound w/ ignition


Low voltage will cause the problem you are having,get the battery charged,and then have the alternator checked for the correct out put,13.65 to 14.25 if it is not in this range give or take a couple of volts,replace it,I would have the battery replaced also,so you won`t have the problem again.Have a shop replace the battery,if you do it yourself,the memory could be erased if certain measures are not performed.

My 03 x type jag wont even try to turn over? Dash lights are fine but windows, mirrors and starter dead! All the dash lights and monitor and radio work but wont even tryto start? Transmittion wont come out...


Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

1992 Lincoln TC Wont Start


Your battery seems to be dead. The lights on the dash need almost nothing to light up but once you try to crank it up - the starter takes a ton of voltage and the lights on your dash die.
Have you tried to start the car with the door open?
When the door is open the dome light is on, and when you try to start the car it goes off, right?
If your answer to the last question is "YES" - have your car battery changed.

Good luck.

98 accord wont start. lights flicker in dash and engine wont turn over


Have the battery checked.  You may have heard a fast clicking sound when the lights were flickering, if so it's coming from the starter solenoid.  If the battery is bad, have the voltage regulator and alternator checked also.  A bad voltage regulator or alternator will kill the new battery.    

Try starting with jumper cables, if that works, you can pull the battery out, take it to a auto parts store that will test it for free (most parts stores will do this).  If it's bad, you can put a new battery in and then drive straight to somewhere to have the charging system tested.
