RAN FINE, BEEN SITTING FOR 10 HOURS. LIGHTS COME ON AND RADIO, BUT ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER?


You have a bad battery. When the battery is going bad there will often be enough power to power lights / accesories but cranking the engine requires much more power and the battery doesn't have enough juice to power the starter.

SUV started fine this morning, Came out from work after 10 hours and it will not start. Did not show any signs that the battery was dead, but not enough juice to start. Tried to jump it and could not. Then...


This happens sometimes with dead batteries taht have more than one dead cell in them. Disconnect the Positive battery cable and connect the jumper cables to that directly and the vehicle should start provided the vehicle providing the jump has a battery with enough amperage to turn your motor over. If there is a leak in that front adjustable air shock this will happen again because that compressor will continue to run trying to get the proper pressure on that shock.

My 2004 alero works just fine all the time, but today leaving for work, it won't start. Just got one click and nothing, no trying to turn over. It seems like the dome light works, maybe dimmer than...


Sounds like a battery. Battery probably has enough juice to make the dome lights work, but not enough juice to turn the starter. Have your battery checked out.

Engine just died while driving. now will not turn over. lights work.


The battery may have enough juice left over to make the lights work but not enough to turn the motor over. If the battery is discharged, you probably need a new alternator. When the alternator goes the car will run until the the battery doesn't have enough juice to fire the motor.
If the motor will turn over but just not fire, it's an electronic ignition problem.
If the battery has full power and the starter motor turns but the motor won't turn over, then you have a broken timing belt.

I have a 1991 dodge ram b250 replaced battery alternator check fuses checked wires an still no juice from alt can my ecm be bad


if your not getting juice from your alternator then it is bad the ecm doesnt supply the alt with juice the alt produces its own so if its not producing the correct voltage it will need replaced. it should make 14.75 volts in order to keep your battery fully charged ang to keep up with all running accesories. it should put out no less than 13 volts

Truck Wont Start and Battery Runs Down.


get a load test done on you battery and alter nator and check your starter for corrision check battery connections before you jump start it and when hooking up cables to your truck let it charge for a few minutes before you crank it if alternator is fried it will only run on juice of battery then will die.the clicking sound is your starter trying to engage but not enough cranking amps left in battery if you can get it going or take the battery out and take to a good auto shop and get them to load test it no point replacing a good battery just to find out it is alternator or starter
I personaaly think it may be alternator but suggest you test if battery is good starter as well ! more thing check that battery terminals are clean and tight
