Some times the extra amperage coming from the alternator the diesel motor will burn out the electrical components of a smaller vehicle. This is why you should never jump start your lawnmowers, motorcycles, or any small engine with a full size vehicle. Check your battery, then alternator, and keep tracing it back until you find the source of the problem.

There is either a cable not getting a very good connection, solenoid has problems, or there is a wiring leading to a relay that has a bad connections. How is your ignition? Is it loose or have loose wires?

also check the magnetic switch mounted on the starter housing, is supplied by current from the starting switch circuit of the ignition switch. This magnetic action of the switch mechanically engages the starter clutch assembly and electrically closes the heavy switch which connects it to the battery. The starting switch circuit consists of the starting switch contained within the ignition switch, a transmission neutral safety switch or clutch pedal switch, and the wiring necessary to connect these in series with the starter solenoid or relay.

SOURCE: Car won't start even after new battery purchase

Alternator problem, the alternator charges the battery when car is running, so it has probably died now. Was working at reduced capacity for a while, which is why you were only getting a partial charge for some time. Now you have an open circuit completely as alternator has failed completely, time for a visit to an auto electrician. PS replacing acid in battery with distilled water is not a good idea. It probably was time for a new battery anyway.

Ok, before I give you a suggestion, I want to let you know that I'm not an expert on cars or anyhting, but I have been focred to fix A LOT of problems with my vehicles over the years to save money, and this is a situation I ran into twice. Once on a 1994 Buick Skylark Coupe, and another time on a 1992 Chevy Corsica. What I learned is that if you hook jumper cables up to your car and it starts, there is USUALLY one of two things wrong with it. Either you have a dead battery (which you don't because it's new), or you have a bad alternator. Because the car stays running after it's jumped, everything points to a bad battery or battery connection. Have you tried replacing the connectors on your battery cables? I know it sounds like a shot in the dark, but I've tried that before out of desperation and it has worked. I'm pretty sure your alternator is ok, or your car would die when the red positive jumper cable was removed, so I'd replace the connectors on the battery calbes in your car, especially if you have never replaced them before. If that doesn't work, if it was me, I'd take it in and have it looked at. Like I said, I'm not an expert by far, so I can only trouble-shoot to a point. Hope this helps, or at least gives you something to try.

Holden Captiva. The battery appears to be flat as when I go to turn it over it just makes a clicking noise. Am I able to jump start the Captiva with my little Nissan pulsar?

Hi Leana a couple of things spring to mind, Yes it could be a matter of a flat battery.You haven't mentioned what year or if it's petrol or diesel.if it's petrol as long as the second car battery is good should be ok. If it's diesel it may struggle but only by trying will you know. However i would advise leads used should be fitted with a surge device to protect all on board computers (ECUs).Connect good battery negative lead to neg batt terminal & Positive lead to poss terminal, on poor battery positive lead to pos terminal on batt and negative lead to a good earth point on 'engine' Be very careful not to reverse any polarities or touch the two cables together. Depending on year of vehicle if series 2 diesel have come across starter motor main cable or alternator main cable or both where the securing nut has come loose damaging starter and loom and alternater wire. This also creates either a clicking noise and or a no start. advise Holden dealer repair.Good luck.

Compression low 130 on all four.will start with a lot of cranking or easy start.not smoking , or loosing water bot when running has plenty of power. 86000 miles

one idea is to tell us what engine it is petrol or diesel
130 is plenty to start a petrol engine so it must be a diesel
Even at that a diesel with good injectors will start if the start rpms from the battery are high enough
so check the injectors and battery condition

Why does the engine turn but wont start on a 2001 chrysler voyager

Hi, it's hard to turn the wheel because the power steering only works when the engine is running.
your non start issue could be several things? So start by checking the basics like petrol,plugs,fuses etc....
also did the car stop when you were driving or after over night?.
Is your car petrol,diesel?

A light appears on my dashboard with a car skidding. Now my Engine and ABS has started to flash. Don't if this has anything to do with it but my car wouldn't start one morning and i thought...

vauxhall or opel it doesnt matter if this is a astra or a zaffiro petrol then i would expect this but the diesel version iam not sure about but i would suspect the ECU for this as the petrol versions are prone to the ECU going wrong with a jump start but if you have siemans unit then this iam not sure about but ?? as havent had problems with diesels as YET mainly vehicles around 2002 onwards of the petrol type then yes lots of problems

I ran out of petrol, then put petrol in and tried to start the car the engine came on but cut out then was struggling until now doesn't even turn over- think batterys dead, but when tried to jumpstart...

Hi, the best thing for you to do would be to remove the battery and give it a full charge using a battery charger doing this should get your car back to normal, as using jump leads dont always switch the imoboliser off as its not running off its own battery fully, so the best things to do would be to go and buy or borrow a battery charger and remove the battery from the car and put it on charge for a few hours, or you can leave the battery on the car as long as you undo the terminals while u r charging the battery, then once its fully charged you need to shut all the doors and windows and lock the doors, then unlock them again, doing this should reset the imob and then this will allow you to start that car and should have you up and running again.

if your car runs on diesel then let me know as if it is and it has run out of diesel then you need to pump the diesel back round the engine using a priming pump under the bonnet, without doing this it juts wont start and your battery will keep going flat,

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok,
