Your pick up coil or parts inside the distributor have failed you may have to check and replace some parts or maybe your whole distributor. sorry.

I have 2001 pt cruiser wont start or crank I got a new battery and starter still wont start it all


Marco, check under the hood in the fuse box for the starter relay. You may be able to swap it with one like it if it has the same numbers on it just to see if it cranks over.

Will not start


is this this s DIY question or ? just a request for wild guessing.
Ill assume its a real DIY. ? do tell.
what is a jumper box to house. ?????????????????
first off, you need to say,
it cranks robustly but does not start or not.
does it crank? if yes, why buy a starter?
no car starts unless cranked. (mine push starts and gravity starts)
but I bet yours is a A/T tranny , automatic.?
so does it crank.?
?
lets pretend, it cranks perfectly.
and really is a no start (confusing your replacing a starter )
this jeep , like most from 1993 have the ASD relay.
THE ASD relay must close to start the engine.
The ASD relay must close, and if spark , and up to 7 other things
are good, then it will stay closed, if not it drops out. KILLING starts.
that is what it does, so watch the ASD while cranking, what does it do>???????????

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html


now I will do NO CRANK.
and the funny house box thing, (a battery charger? or what i cant guess)
no cranks are caused.
By bad shifter, switch.
this is called the key line.
so i hot wire the starter solenoid, (remove tiny wire first to it)
ask how to do this.... its not hard. (mostly but some cars have shields making it harder today)
and it dont crank ! NOW? , then bad battery,starter bad, cables or seized engine. (turn engine by hand ,ok? to spin? by hand?)
and it does crank. then bad key line is reason.
easy huh? just one hot wire step and bam, problem cut in half.
i then try to crank in neutral, bam it cranks. and starts.
bad PRNLD switch.
or i just wiggle the shifter, bam, it cranks
or i wiggle the key switch funny in crank position and bam it cranks
bad key switch.

last, pretend the starter fails the hot wire above.
i hit it with a hammer, bam it cranks now.

we can do all that with a voltmeter easy,
ask.

http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html

see hot to solve no cranks on most cars.

other simular failures.
battery dies after parked.?
charge light (dash) on , driving? or idling, bingo, dead battery.


one more , car cranks but will not start for longer than 2 seconds
ASD action
but you failed to notice the Immobilizer lamp glowing wrongly.


my last answer. the funny house thing is a battery charger
and if you leave it charging long enough car cranks.
bingo?.?????
if yes, then the battery is DEAD and is DISCHARGED.
it discharged because you or something is left running, in car.
see phantom drains here.
the reason the car jump failed is you didnt give it enough time.
a very bad car battery can swamp the donor cars power source.
(and easy with cheap jumper cables.)
here is what you did wrong.

car is rested, it wont crank
you open the hood.
and check the batteryvoltage with a volt meter.
it reads 12.6vdc rested. good, it should crank ok, (but my not)
or it reads 12v, its discharged, so charge it to 12.6v and try again.

http://www.fixkick.com/drain/drain.html

  1. won't crank?
  2. battery discharges overnight.?
  3. won't start but cranks ok.?
  4. charge light stuck on.? running.?


which?

1999 ford contour that wont crank


You mean wont CRANK or CRANKS but WONT RUN???? 4 cyl or V6 auto or manual trans????????? The 8th VIN digit would be most helpful as there are 4 different engines for that car. Its really cheaper to check items before you replace them. The starter should have a smaller BLACK wire that should have power on it when trying to crank the car. You say it wont crank, then check the neutral switch on the trans. Try putting it in neutral to start it. If it has a manual trans, the clutch switch on the pedal may be bad. There is a starter relay in the fuse box under the hood that powers the starter, does it click if you turn the key to start? if it does then the relay is at least trying to work, but doenst mean the contacts inside are good, If it does not click, then the neutral switch may be bad.Check the BLACK/YELLOW wire at the trans switch, if it has power on it, the switch may be bad, ground that (Black/Yellow)wire and see if it cranks. I dont know if there are any other relays in the fuse box that you can swap for the starter relay for test purposes.

Moved my rx8 yesterday.i got ack in it this


verify condition by spraying some starter fuel in it.it should start and die if its a fuel problem.
if it still does nothing start checking any and all fuses.if all the fuses are good take out a spark plug and verify no spark.
if no spark check the ignition module.
it might be able to have it checked at autozone for free.but you will have to remove it.

2003 sierra 4.8 cranks but wont start!


The crankshaft postion sensor is right above the starter on the engine block. Either it got broken during the starter replacement or the connector is unplugged, no crank sensor equals no spark.
