The electrical system on my 2006 Buick Redezvous is making the car not start, my ac won't work as well as my backup lights. The garage wants to charge me $180 for each of several diagnostic checks..


have the battery checked out with a carbon pile discharge tester , this will test the battery under load , then test the alternator to see if is charging ok, make sure the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean, check the back up light fuse and switch, and check air con fuse . if the battery is below 10 volts the engine may crank but it wont start.

99 suzuki vitara v6 turns on all power but wont


the starter uses 10x more elect. power than the head lamps
or 100x more than dash lamps. it means little.
what matters most is jumper cable starts.
does it crank with jumper cables to a running, donor car,(aaa jump)
no bad starter
no, bad starter key line( immobliizer or such) ask how to test.
yes, cranks great, now.
that means the battery was dead,
i charge the battery and it now cranks, due to lights left on or
charge system failure, if battery goes to 13.3 to 15v running good
if on the charge system failed. (causing battery discharge)
if after charging a battery it will not crank car, its a bad battery (jumps ok)

My 96geo metro has no elect power


do you have a voltmeter, any?
if you do, this is childs play, but not, near impossible to see electrons
with eye balls. we can see atoms, but not electrons, probably never.
Dr.Tyson...... quote.
but back to earth, this is easy , the FSM cover this, as does alldata.com
but i bet $15 for the online is over budget?
my guess, is not have any elect. power really means you cant
CRANK the engine over?
or it cranks or will not start.
no car cranks with out a starter, cept my M/T i can push start
it and gravity start mine.
but my guess 2 is yours is A/T tranny.
so must crank.

why not post like this.
i get in car, i turn on head lights, they are dead. (dead battery or fuse blown) no, my head lights work. (this is always test 1)
then i turn the key on, and the dash idiot lamps all glow. (normal)
if not the fuses are blown or the battery is dead.
a good battery reads (any voltmeter even walfart $10 meter)
12.6vdc rested.
ok my dash glows. and more important the EFI CEL lamp
this lamp is called many thing, MIL, SES or check engine light
if it dont glow, then the Fuser to the EFI are in fact blown.
or the lamp is bad.
if in usa, you can plug any OBD2 scan tool into the near knees DLC port and it will connect, key on, if not the fuses are BLOWN.
you push the scan button and get what codes? DTC errors.
report them.
then crank for 5 seconds (im assuming it can) and you get what DTC.

if car will not crank
then jumper start crank it. does it?
yes, then the battery was dead.
if battery dead, charge it , does it crank now?
if battery discharges parked this is called parasitic drain.
if starter is dead , with jumper cables that is bad starter or key line.


we can do this 1 step at a time
but you never posted the symptoms.

  1. head lamps dead.
  2. dash dead.
  3. starter dead (will not crank)
  4. all above good , engine will not start.


in that order.

1993 Toyota Camry - No electricity reaches the starter when I turn the ignition key on.


A/T or M/T ?????? Auto or STICK>? shift.????????
for sure , all elect, problems always check all fuses first in both boxes. (endless posts that.)
and endless 2, clean the battery lugs and check battery voltage
12.6vdc rested is a good battery.

it can be many things not just those.
do you want to guess, or tests... ill skip the former.
NO CRANK, is the problem.

1: so does Jumper cable starters work<
yes, battery is bad or discharged, (bad battery or charge system failure)
no, the jumper test failed,
so what to do next, (i use meters)
but
A: I hot wire the solenoid, big lug to dinky lug. all keys in pocket....!@!!!
it cranks great
that means the starter is good, and the key line is dead.
it dont crank, bad starter. (or seized engine?) hand turn engine, ok, its ok.
ok the key line is bad.
so why is it, until you tell what transmission in car ?????
1: M/T clutch switch bad/
2: A/T the PRNDL switch is bad.

see tricks at end, the magic.
http://www.fixkick.com/nocrank.html
my posts assume
1: no aftermarket hacks to the starting systems (no remote start bs)
2: no aftermarket alarms. hacked in. removed many .....
3: other hacks gone wild , even audio installers with out a clue.

No charging condition - tested new alt, tested new batt


OK....Since you've tested ALT & BATTERY?..Then you should inspect that missing fuse for horn and see if maybe it's been put in as a replacement in a port for anything to do with charging system,ie: alt,battery or other?....Then check ANY fuse links on the wiring/battery cables and other like to altenator etc....If you dont know what a fuse link is,most times it's on the hot wire that goes to starters,close to it,and to explain what it is--it's a short length of wire that is smaller,like a filament,like a bus fuse,cept these are coated and you cant se theyre blown,you have to do a continuity test to see if filament type wire isnt broken.....Another thing you may want to try is ADD an additional body ground wire from battery negative post to body of vehicle.I had a 71 Monte Cralo way back and I went through a similar thing and NO electronics thank god! But I added a fresh,thick wire from battery to body heavy bolt type screw and problem was solved....Hope I ahave helped,please post if it did...Thanks JD

Will not start there is no juice going from the battery to the engine at all the lights will not turn on or the horn won't blow nothing works at all


did you changed the battery ? and then it did not start, how do you know that it is fully charged.
well lets assume that you are right, get a test light, start by putting one end to the battery positive +, the other end touch the engine block, valve cover what ever is metal on the engine, if comes on you are ok is far is the battery, then if ok, open the fuse box next to the battery and look for a main fuse, 80 or 100 amp, if you cant see inside, or you cant pock it, pullet out, ground one leg on the body any were, and touch the other leg with the test light, if it light up is ok, if you can pocket, the test light mast light up when you hook up the test light alligator to ground. and continue testing all the big fuses, also look at the battery + terminal may have a little box on top with 1 or 2 fuses, main fuses, check them the same way, both side of the fuse must lit up, if one side does not lit up, you have a open main fuse. good luck.

My car battery was dead when went to start. I jumped it them went to town in other car and came back and would not start again. Lights come on but will not turn over does not sound like it is trying to...


HI. It is possible that the battery has reached its life span, and may need to be replaced. If this is a new battery, the charging system may be malfunctioning. Use the procedure below to inspect the entire charging assembly for faults.

Wear protective eye wear and clothing and remove all jewelry when checking your battery and charging system. Jewelry is a good conductor of electricity and is not recommended. Most batteries wear out every 3 to 5 years and need to be replaced. Always replace your battery with an equal replacement battery to assure proper operation. Automotive batteries have a +positive terminal (red), - negative terminal (black). Electricity is stored in the battery and then supplied to the vehicle when the engine is not running. While the engine is running the vehicles alternator charges the battery for future use. (Note: never disconnect the battery while the engine is running. If the battery cable is disconnected from the battery a spark can be generated which can cause the battery to explode or a major electrical malfunction to occur.)

To check a battery surface voltage, remove the positive terminal protective cover. Connect the +positive side meter lead (red) to the positive side battery terminal. Connect the - negative (black) side meter lead to the negative battery terminal. With the vehicle not running and the car sitting over night the battery voltage should be between 12.5 and 12.8 volts.(You will need to use a voltmeter for this testing procedure)

The alternator is rotated by a drive belt driven by the vehicles engine while it is running. Electrical voltage and amperage are generated to recharge the battery and supply voltage to the electrical system of the car. The alternator is held in place with mounting bolts. There is a main electrical wire on the rear of the alternator that supplies voltage to a main voltage junction box. If your alternator is not charging properly, your battery will slowly drain down from operating all the electrical systems in your car and stop the car from running.(most non charge states will be the cause of a loose belt or a low tension rate, due to a mis-adjusted alternator. make sure you have enough tension in the belt for full rotation of the alt pulley)

Next, you will need to check the alternators output with the Amp meter.

Testing the amperage output of the alternator is good for measuring the amount (not the level) of voltage the alternator can produce. This test can be tricky because if the alternator is weak it can still show it as producing amperage. Which is good, but if the voltage is low, it will still allow the battery to go dead. To check the amperage output of an alternator an amp meter is needed. Once the meter is connected start the engine. Next turn on all electrical accessories and raise the engine idle to about 1200 RPM. The alternator should output the max amperage it was designed to produce. Example: a 90 amp alternator should output about 88 amps. Note: An alternator cannot sustain maximum output for long periods of time. If the alternator is forced to operate at maximum output it will overheat and fail. An alternator is designed to operate at max amperage output only for a reasonable amount of time.

((Connect the voltage meter lead the same way you would in a battery static voltage check, Start engine (do not drive) at engine idle the voltage should be between 13.6 to 14.3 volts. If not the alternator may need replacing.)))

Now, if the charging system is ok, move on to the starter, and ignition switch. Use this procedure to inspect these additional areas.

Step 1
Check for 12 volts on the large wire attached to the top terminal on the starter relay. It should have battery voltage. If not, the battery, terminals or wire is bad.


Step 2
Check the small wire on the solenoid for power when the key is in the start position. Remove the small wire on the solenoid and have a helper hold the key in the start position. Check the wire for battery voltage. If there is voltage, the starter is bad. If there is no voltage, replace the wire.


Step 3
Check the fuse in the fuse box under the hood on the left fender well. If it is good, check the relay by pulling it out and checking for power at one terminal with the key off. If there is no power, the problem is in the fuse box between the fuse and the relay. If there is power, have the helper hold the key in the start position once again and check for power at another terminal from the ignition key. If there is power, the relay is bad. If there is no power, the starter circuit is suspect.


Step 4
Check to see if there is power to the neutral safety switch if there is no power at the relay. Use the voltmeter to check for power with the key in start. If there is power going in, check for power going out. If there is no power going in, the security system or ignition switch is suspect. If there is power going in and none coming out, the switch is bad. If there is power coming out, the problem is between the neutral switch and the relay.


Step 5
Remove the cover on the bottom of the steering column. Check the solid yellow wire for power when the key is in the start position. If there is no power, the ignition switch is bad.

Jeep has been having trouble starting. A new starter, alt, and battery has been tried.


did you replace these things because the engine was turning over slower then normal?
or no turning over at all?
or turning over but wouldn't start?

Alternator not charging battery are there any electrical fuses


As long as you have had the charging system and belt checked and they are o-kay. You should be alright just make sure you disconnect the negative battery cable before starting. If the charging system wasn't checked have it checked first. Depending on how the battery goes dead you could have adraw on the battery, a bad battery, a bad belt, broken wire, bad fuse link just to mention a few. Be sure before you replace alternators are not cheap, not being sure could be an expensive mistake. Good luck.

Gauges quit working and battery died jumpstarted went approx 1 mile and it did the same thing.


Charge the battery to full. Start engine and apply voltmeter to battery posts. Reading should be 13.5-14.5 volts runing. If you read normal battery voltage then alternator is not charging. Check all fuses with test light. Power on both sides of same fuse o?k. Power on one side and not the other burnt fuse. Sometimes when looking at fuses they seem o/k. If they burn close to one end it can be difficult to see. Suggest using test light to be sure. There is a gauge fuse in the system and if it goes it stops power to the regulator on the alt. Hence "no charge" Hopr this helps
