Need to know more history about vehical. How old is the battery and is it the correct model(never cheep out on a battery) C.C.A. (cold cranking amps are important too).A batt. 24 hours after being used should store 12.6 volts(cold) not running. With the vehical running with lights and accessories on should be between 13.5 to 14 volts. If the wiring to and from the battery, are in good condition(clean,no corrosion, no breaks or freying) then inspect the starter. It would be faster to remove starter and have it tested. Call your local part store or starter repair shop for help. Most places will bench test it for free.

2003 Saturn Vue with a identity anti theft system. Replaced my battery a few months ago. Couple weeks ago noticed a little difficulty starting up. Last week wouldn't start just clicking noise. Jumped...


Anti-theft system has nothing to do with it . Battery cables , maybe , Park neutral safety switch possibly ! With anti-theft system problem you wouldn't a click or anything , that is if the anti-theft disables fuel or the starter . Plus the SECURITY light would be on if it were a anti-theft system problem . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop that knows how to do starter circuit testing >
Starter Voltage Drop
How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

And what's this identity anti theft system ? No such thing ! The vehicle has a content theft an vehicle theft deterrent system !
This system disables fuel not cranking of the engine. The VCM/PCM will not disable the fuel due to any BCM message for the remainder of the ignition cycle.
If the VCM/PCM does not receive the same password from the BCM as the last learned one, the vehicle will start and then stalls due to the Fuel Lockout.

1988 lxi honda accord battery drains overnight


Just a couple problems I've had. dome light left on due to faulty door open switch, spot light charger or equipment left plugged or wired to battery, lately I thought I had a bad battery but I just need to clean the terminal connections. One more thing if your car is running you can pull the negative cable off the battery. If the car dies your alternator could be the problem. If you have a light in the trunk or under the hood you could pull the bulb out to make sure you don't have a faulty switch turning them on. These are kind of simple and that is the way I start out.

I have a 97 bonnaville. While the car is running, all the lights flicker and the engine surges in sync with the lights. I have also smelt something burning but the smell only lasts a few seconds. A month...


The engine in the Bonneville is known to have problems with the intake manifold, this can cause poor idle and sometimes a smell. The pipe from the EGR valve causes the plastic next to it to melt, sometimes coolant can get into the intake. This needs to be looked at as soon as possible, because water getting into the cylinders can cause major damage.

2001lincoln towncar has no tail or running lights but has headlights


I had the same scenario with the taillight and the license plate light that wouldn’t come on. Brake light, emergency light, left signal light, right signal light, and reverse light are all working!!!!! I was limited to drive during the day only for the last two months, so I had to be home before sun set, and my wife loved it actually ;)…..First you need to check all the fuses inside the car as well as the distribution box under the hood, then check the all light bulbs to see if there is any burn light, check the main switch light inside, and if everything turn okay. Your last option is the LCM Lighting Control Module under the dashboard, it cost around $500, but get a used one from the junkyard, it may cost you around $150. Finally, my driving isn’t limited no more.

Looking for this part from Panasonic CD or DVD player: PPN13KA12C


Is your Lexus 2/3 generation Navigation system not working? Famous 'No disk detected' message?
I was lucky a month ago and got a used one motor. Repaired my DVD and the GPS works fine. Then I wanted to buy couple more motors in case my wife's Navi goes bad and to have some spare ones. I bet I was searching under both PPN13KA12C and PPN-13KA12C (proper designation) for over a month every day, couple of times a day, and nothing, until today. Google PPN-13KA12C and go to SMC Electronics - CD and DVD Repair Parts to buy them for $6.50 plus shipping. Hurry, they won't last.

Tail lights and tag light not working


Start pulling the fuses one by one until you find the blown fuse. I am having the same problem on my wife chevy van, and that is what I started doing. It did not affect the electrical system.
