SOURCE: 2006 hard starting will not stay running, then no power at all.

What happens when you turn the key?... is there a clicking or clunking noise?... try tapping the starter and the solenoid that is attached to the starter and see if that helps. It may help if you have someone else turn the key while you tap on the starter and solenoid.

SOURCE: Suspected immobiliser problem

Immobilizer unit is connected in series with the neutral safety switch.

Next time your Luxes GS fail to start.....put you foot on the brake,shift to NEUTRAL (N) and turn the key.

A shorting/shorted neutral will draw power and kill the battery.

Give it a try.

Please post result on the comment window.

SOURCE: Left lights on ,and ran

Find the alarm and disconnect it, or locate the fuse to the alarm and remove it. Then you can charge the battery without all the noise. Once the battery is charged, hook the alarm up and disarm it with the remote.

Battery dead...cannot get the cargo hatch open without power.


If you jump started and nothing happened then you have a poor connection or your jump leads were too small. You need welding cable size leads and heavy clamp to get the current to a dead car. Leads the size of straw won't do it. Get it connected properly and retry. Try connecting to the starter terminal, then open the trunk, then try from the battery end. A good home mech should be able to work it out.

What is wrong when the milage indicator starts to flash on my KA car


It needs a proxy alignment in your local dealership, it can be caused by flay battery, leads being disconnected, a bad connection, being jump started or a faulty alternator, what happens is the ECU fails to locate certain systems due to one of the above mentioned and flashes the mileage to warn of the issue. Its a common fault in Ford KA's and easily rectified in your local dealership. Hope it helps.

Hello there, experts! I need some answers to a problem with our Kia Spectra '05. See, we drove it all weekend, no problems to speak of, but this morning when we tried to use it, no only would it not start,...


My advise is to remove the battery and charge it,also clean the battery poles and battery leads [some emery paper or sand paper will do.It cannot be any thing else only a simple problem.Even jump leads can be bad quality the insulation on the leads is made to look heavy but the inner wire is light and gives poor connection.

Hyundai Tiburon Won't Start


Possibly the alarm cut-off switch? or Ignition key switch (or wires) going bad?

But you mentioned you tried to jump start it and it did turn over?
IF so, you could have severe corrosion or loose connections of the battery cable both at the battery and at the termination points, such as ground and starter motor.
Check that the battery wires are tight and clean at the battery posts and at the other end.

Again the No lights suggests either the alarm cut-off, or an absolute disconnected battery cable.

Finally, it could be ignition fuse, Check fuses. Ignition key switch.

What makes this hard is that you suggest it would turn over with another battery connected. This makes no sense.

Good luck
