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.

When I had a similar problem, the culprit turned out to be a loose battery cable. Is the negative cable tightly secured to the battery post, with nothing between the metal clasp and the lead terminal?

1987 Ford Econoline motorhome, sometimes key turns and nothing happens but starts fine with jump leads, keep on turning the key and eventually it will start. Can anyone shed any light please


Sure, CLEAN your battery cables - ESPECIALLY the bottoms. The bottoms are exposed to grease, road grime and when covered in "gunk" causes resistance. When you jump start or hit key multiple times, cables heat up and expand making better contact. Advise - clean ALL cable ends

My first thought is that you may have a fuel filter issue or a fuel pump starting to go south. The part about the battery could be a dirty terminal, loose cable or the battery is giving up. Clean the cables and check fuel pressure. I would try to see what trouble codes are stored and address them as well.

Sounds as if the Alternator is not charging, alltough it could be a bad battery. Check the connections on the battery and make sure the cables are tight. Jump the car again, and if it starts check the alternator for output, it should be putting out close to 17 volts if the battery is dead. If the alternator charges then you probably have a battery problem, and need to replace the battery.

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.
