Try jump starting it from another car. or that thing should have a volt gauge while trying to crank it if it drops lower then 11volts it wont start. or if you can hook up a volt gauge to the battery if not just try jump starting it.

Battery light flashing

The battery light on, is an indication of alternator failure. If your battery is more than 3 years old it needs replacement . A bad battery can damage a new alternator (full field condition). The age of your truck warrants inspection of the charging system. It requires at Least 20 amps output, from the alternator to run the engine.

I bought a 1996 Jetta GLS, drove it home with no problems. This is my first car and wanted to learn how to drive a stick, i killed it of course but now it wont even start again. I turn the key all the way...

I would have the battery checked out still, it don't take much power for the radio to work, and by what you say, that the gas and temp. gauge jump up and down when trying to start, that tells me weak battery,most auto parts will do a free battery test for you,have it checked out. hope this was very helpful.

Has power but wont start or turn over

Sounds like your battery is flat. Their is enough charge in the battery to make the ignition lights, radio etc come on but not enough to engage the starter motor which requires much higher power. Try jump starting the car or charging the battery as a first step. If the car is a manual you could push start it. Once you get it running the battery will charge back up and will even start the car but dont be deceived, if the battery is failing you will have the same problem again in the next day or so.

The radio in my 2005 honda element starting cutting off and on. now the car wont start. battery seems dead.

replace the battery with a high RC/CCA rating at least 650 or above.
ck the altanator as well it might not be charging. the altanator should be at 13.5 volts or above and if it is not then it needs to be swapped out as well... go to oreillys and autozone to get the battery and altenator tested. replace the battery in your vehicle around every five years or as needed make sure the terminals on the battery are snug as well this could cause you to have a no start.. ck all conections on the back of the radio to make sure they are all plugged in, factory radios usually have issues when the wires and antenna on the back are not pushed in tightly..

Car wont start, lights will come on and radio and windows. doesn't appear to be battery, but it also wont jump off either. is this the starter. makes no noise what so ever when you turnt he key

This exact same thing happened to me, it can be a number of problems. You might not have enough battery charge to get the car going since the fuel pump in this car is electronic, my car did not start but when i took it to a mechanic thinking the battery was perfect because lights and all were on they jump started it and it started then immediately died, i also had a choke pull off failure, leaks in my carburetor, and the float was to heavy causing flooding. 185 dollars later and a rebuilt carburetor my car had a smooth idle and turned on immediately after turning ignition. but then to find out my alternator was bad hence the battery only having enough power for the radio and in short try jumping the car even though the battery seems good, check your carb or get it checked by a mechanic, then check if your alternator is ok. if i waited for two days without attempting to start car then trying it would start if i held the ignition and pushed the gas pedal down until it started. (see if thats the case for you) my guess is you carb, battery, and alternator.
