Check the battery terminals make sure they are getting a good contact ,I would also make sure the battery is fully charged . If all that checks out ok you may have a bad starter solenoid on it.

Sounds Indickitive of a STARTER Prublem As Long as Battery is Fully Charged , As Strainge as it Sounds , Take A Hammer and Smack the Sterter 2-4 times and see if it starts after this If It DOES Surely it IS the Starter Even if Not It Still Can Be the STARTER Again I DO KNOW THIS SOUNDS UNCONVENTIONAL But Any Truely EXPERIENCED AUTO TECH Will Concure this is a Test for Starting Problems on Especialy Vehicles of this AGE .

How can i fix my 2003 holden barina `eps warning light from coming on


It'll pay to have the crank sensor checked. They're known for heating up and stalling the car when they're no longer any good. Usually once it has cooled down the car will start but as soon as the sensor gets hot it'll stall again

Wont start after running for a while. service lights work, radio, headlights but wont crank. just replaced starter, got new battery about a month ago. after 5-8 hours car starts with no problems.


Hot does make a difference. You say it won't start, but does it crank and not start, or not even crank? If cranks but will not start, any electrical part may fail as it heats, and when you shut it off the engine gets much hotter since coolant is no longer circulating. Thus, a marginal crank or cam sensor, or coil/ignition module may work while cold of while engine is running, but fail when you first turn car off.

Will crank but wont start


When an engine overheats, they should be shut off immediatly when any warning lights come on, or the temp. gauge reads extremly high. At this point, under extreme heat, your valves will heat up, get soft and bend. Your pistons will melt holes through them and your rings will break. Depending on how long the engine was ran in an overheated condition, your might have an engine with NO OR LOW COMPRESSION.

My escort overheated so added water then i tried to start the car but it wont start, its cranks but it wont start


need add add antifreeze half antifreeze and water to raise coolant boiling point. replace thermostat and radiator pressure cap.wait until engine cool then try starting it up.depends on how long you drove car when engine over heated.if you turn off engine soon as it over heated no harm done.if you kept on driving and engine die of lack of cooling, and car wont crank you could have blown head gasket warped or cracked cylinder head.

02 pontiac sunfire won't crank at random times


Hi, I had the same problem with my girlfriend's 97' sunfire, it wouldn't start so I jumped the starter terminals which I think screwed it up even more (causing the theftlock light to come on). It turns out this is a common problem that can be solved by hooking up a GM Tech2 scanner, going under "body" codes, and following the instructions for bypassing the PASS LOCK SOLENOID. Hope you find this helpful, Byron
