You need to replace the terminals on the battery leads and clean the terminals on the battery, baking soda and water, along with a good scrubbing with a wire brush should do it. That could also work with the cable terminals. Check the power going to the starter and starter solenoid for corrosion also.

New battery new alternator wont start ?


I'd check for bad or corroded contacts/cables from battery to starter (If your vehicle is older than 14 years). If that looks good I'd be suspicious of the solenoid in your starter sticking(will probable need a new starter).

Turn ignition key and motor starts up, next day turn ignition key and motor just turns over and wont start. could it be anti theft problem its a 2002 f150 4 wheel drive with 4.6 liter


This could be caused by either a faulty Crank Shaft Position Sensor or the anti-theft system. Try put key in, turn to ON position for EXACTLY 10 minutes, As SOON as anti-theft light shuts off or stops flashing, then IMMEDIATELY start the engine.

Mazda 6 wont turn over,and all dials go mad.is it battery or starting motor,or something else.


Check the battery positive cable there is a problem with the positive side of the battery cracking open and corroding the cable. You may need to just replaced the battery and cable if the corrosion hasn't gone to deep in the cable.

Bonneville wont start


Check your battery cables,, they are probably loose or corroded. Side mount batteries that hold multiple cables have this problem that occurs over an extended period of time. Cleaning the connections and retightening the hold down bolt may fix it. Sometimes a 3/8 bolt and a washer with a nut can be used to get
a more positive holding force to keep the cable tight.
