I think you have a draw on the battery while the car is off, causing your battery voltage to drain down. Not sure what the noise was when you turned the key, but it sounded like a relay buzzing. Check the voltage on your battery and check all your fuses, let me know what you find.

SOURCE: battery keeps draining

have the battery tested, many times when u run the battery dead it ruins the battery, if the battery was good u should have been able to listen to the radio for at least 4 hours and still start the car, chances are the battery is no good. Kragen auto and others do this for free. Never assume u have a drain until all other poss are checked. Let me know what u find, I am fairly sure the battery will test bad.

SOURCE: My 98 Chevy Cavalier will not 'crank/turnover'

If the lights dim, its the starter, If they go out, you have a bAD BATTERY CONNECTION. This cranking with lights on . It may be neutral safety swith, May be clutch safety if manual trans. I'd go for the battery connection is poor. Ck the ground/neg first.

Dodge 440 motorhome parked now won't start crank over. Battery is fully charged changed ballast res. Tested coil.Changed ecuand voltage regulator. Repaired damaged wires, cleaned conn. Any ideas?

if you're getting all those things then there can only be one problem left, in order for it to start it has to get gas, so my guess is the gas pump is not working. btw are you getting the check engine light? if so then check the gas pump.

what engine is there, we cant guess them , ever. gas or diesel?
the CEL must glow key on then go out running, that is normal.
you need to stop thinking the CEL is magic nor the ECU behind it
a $100000 artificial intelligent entity.
IT'S NOT. (but the scan tool is very good to use now, if it dont start)
  1. ever get a tune up this decade??????? like spark parts an filtes, no? and timing belt ignored?
  2. fuses good.?
  3. spark good on all cylinders?
  4. starts with test fuel.? yes ,no.?
  5. yes, then fuel loss or flooding is it flooding?
  6. no, spark is bad or engine bad, since spark is ok, then engine and if engine is bad, then the timing belt slipped, due to #1
no engine stated so cant really wax too smart, can I.

dah line up...
1.3 L I4; 1.5 L I4; 1.6 L I4; 1.8 L I4; 2.0 L I4; 2.3 L I4; 1.4 L Diesel I4

dash lamps dim, or dead, head lights dim or dead.

that is a DEAD battery, left head lights on, charge it now. fix phantom drains.
or cables rusty
or alternator(or related) dead. (car will stall driven after battery charged)

I have a 1990 ford f150 lariat xlt. Single cab 302 engine. Recently (about a year ago) my ignition switch stopped working. Someone told me to take off the steering column cover, turn on the switch, and...

It does sound like you have something that is draining the power from your battery overnight. I had the same problem with a car I no longer have and I went through all kinds of checks to see where the problem was. It wasn't until I went outside one night to put the backrest on a rear seat into position where someone could sit there. To my surprise, the trunk light was on. I fixed the problem (a bad switch) and never had a battery problem after that.
What I am getting at is that one thing you should do to check out the car is to look at it when it is dark outside. If you have a hood light, that might be staying on. Even the interior light might be staying on and you don't notice it during the day time. Also, check your bed light to see if that is staying on. If any of these are the problem, a simple adjustment or switch replacement will cure the problem.

Will not turn over

If the lights work but no crank, it could be the security system or the neutral safety switch among other things.
Is the security light on or flashing ? Do the warning lights come on when you turn the key on ? Did you try cranking it in neutral ?

2004 325xi BMW wont start - replace spark plugs and fuel pump

If u hear the engine cranking in the AM, the batt & alt sound good. If you don't get any engine cranking in the am you may have an electrical short draining the battery. Before u convict the starter u must make sure the battery has full power in the AM. (12V) & 12 V to the starter

1995 volvo 850 turbo wagon will not start all of a

You can check 2 things. 1., have someone in the car to turn the key to the start position. Tap the starter with a small hammer and see if it cranks. If it does, replace the starter. 2., have the battery tested as well as the connections to the battery. Corrosion builds and can cause heavy resistance to heavy loads(like starting). These are the 2 most likely causes. Let me know if you need further assistance.
