Your battery is dead.

Jump start the vehicle, remove jumper cables and see if the battery will charge... if battery does not charge then either battery is bad or alternator is not charging the battery.

Check for corroded and/or loose connections.

Also, after the vehicle starts, look for interior lamps or other power consuming equipment that may have inadvertently left on, causing the power to be drained from your battery.

Intermittent start, NO crank. Gets warm-hot won't restart, wait 10 min -hrs. Then starts right up.

sounds like a bad starter or bad wire from the starter. When it gets hot it fails. Look at all wire to and from the starter, and have the selinoid on starter checked.I think that's where the problem lies. Let me know how you make out Starters can cause this

2004 chrysler pacific will start sometimes but sometimes won't

I would suspect the fuel pump is the problem, it may be sticking at times and this causes a no start. The pump is located inside the fuel tank and it is electric.

My van has been not wanting to start when I turn the key...if i keep trying it will finally start....i can hear a clicking sound and the lights radios and all electronics work what do you think?

start with a tune up and go from there. the clicking may be plug wire leakage. open the hood start the car and watch under the hood for sparking. best when done in the dark of night. if it looks like the 4th of july under there you need plug wires too.

My Ford five hundred won...t turn over (crank)...the lights are on and when I turn the key I hear a ticking sound but it wont crank...what problem might I have

All indicates to a flat battery. If the lights work or the horn blows, that is no indication that the battery is still good. You need to use a hydrometer to test the electrolyte SG to check if the battery is at full charge.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 01 cavalier

Assuming you've already changed the fuel filter(and that the filter is facing the correct direction) let's start to think that it IS getting enough fuel and that you could have a possible vacuum leak. First, to close the book on the fuel system, turn your key to the run position a few times. Do not turn the engine over, just turn the key on until you hear a clicking sound under the hood. This is most easily accomplished with the drivers and passengers windows open and the hood open. Each time you turn the key you should hear a click and then about 2 seconds later another click. This, is the fuel pump relay priming the system for starting. If you have someone put their ear to the filler tube(cap off) while you turn the key on and off, they should clearly hear the fuel pump running and stopping.If all that is okay, try to find the small tirevalve type fitting on the fuel rail, the one that runs alongside the injectors. With the key left in the run position, poke the little pin in the center and you should get a pretty good squirt of fluid shooting out from the valve.If you do, start the engine and have your helper listen to the pump in the filler tube again. Run it for a while or whatever time it takes to stall and if he or she heard the pump running when it stalled then your problem is not fuel. Spray some penetrating oil, with the engine running all around the intake manifold, not the air intake at the filter, but at all vacuum lines and around the mounting gaskets for the intake. If you hear the engine start to stumble then keep concentrating the spray until you pinpoint the vacuum leak. I'm tired of typing, Hope you find your problem, thanks, Dana

Go under the hood and you will see a box it is not a big box it is a small one, Open it up and you will see some plugs,, There is a 3prong plug that is in there that needs to be taken out and replaced and it will solve the problem.
