if its a constant click, your battery is discharged.

1999 lunina car wont start first time but then starts and runs good why wont it start first try?


Try turning key on and off a few times before you crank it. If that helps, check your fuel system. My info for fuel pressure on 3.1L engine, key on engine off, 40.5--47 psi, use a fuel pressure gage to check.

My 2004lmpala wont start 3400 engine ?


If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also check for fuel injector pulse.

What lights, are you talking about dash lights? If so, some of those items may not go hot until you turn on the key. Then I would check ignition switch and wiring. I haven't looked at your wiring diagrams. I would think the horn circuit would be hot all the time.

2006 vw new beetle tdi wont start or even try to crank. gage lights are on.


1. Could be faulty key/flat key battery not disabling the security system
Solution - Try your spare key and see if that works

2. Could be low battery - check battery voltage (Lights are LED and will run on super low voltages)

3. Ignition switch failures are super common on VW's. But you need to check the other 2 first.

96 nissan altima automatic. Wont start I turn the key and get nithung. Have piwer to the radio windoes etc but simpke.wont even begi. To turn


Hi there:Sound like a starter problem, also check battery charge. Spark, fuel and compression... all three of these are tested when the engine is being cranked over. There are two way of checking for fuel. Fuel pressure and fuel trigger. Both are very important and must be present for the engine to start. Fuel pressure is self explanatory. You just hook up the gage and see what the reading is. Fuel trigger is check with a noid light. The injector gets unplugged and the noid light gets plugged in to the injector clip. With the engine cranking over, this light must blink. This is the signal to the injectors from the computer. You can have all the fuel pressure in the world, but it wont matter if the injector is not pulsing gas into the cylinder like it should.

Compression tester, spark tester, fuel pressure gage and noid light are all accessible at your local auto store. All three tests play a very important part in diagnosing a no start condition. Be extremely careful when doing these tests.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Died while driving home


check the fuel pump fuse/relay, could be just bad enough to cause an intermittent start/no start. and check fuel pressure,spark and the crank position sensor.
