No, year? no make or model? no engine size? Auto or stick drive? Provide as much info as you can if you want it answered, otherwise these kind of questions get ignored, try this, disconnect the battery for at least 24 hours, this will tell the computer {if it has one} to reset and you may be good to go, if it makes no difference, then I would say you have burnt out the computer and possibly alternater as well. check all your fuses. drive it to a mechanics to get it put on a diagnostic machine if this fails, he will pinpoint it for you. Good luck, hope thios helps.

Why won't my 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara start?


ill answer for NO ELECTRICAL POWER :
sure and is easy with any DMM meter, got one? any $20 DMM.
my guess;1
engine will not crank
dash lamps out.
head lights out. dead.
post systems of electrical system , all parts that work and those that dont work, and problem is easy.
cleaned battery terminals.
tried borrowed battery that reads, 12.6vdc ? (charged is 12.6)
2012 that is in warranty car.... ?
my guess on 2012
jumping a car, that is battery jump starting.
a battery can short, and no jump start on earth will start shorted battery in car. but does lay down some big sparks, or burns up cheap walmart cables.
if the car will not crank, say just that, my starter motor will not crank
jump started from live running other car.
if true then make sure headlights work , if they dont work fix that first.
HL must always work, even keys in pocket.
best is to put a fully charged battery in the car, jump starting can cause
surges that can damage sensitive electronic$$$, do jumps as a desperate measure,
with a charged battery,
1: Head lights work, no fix that , use voltmeter
2: cranks robustly.
no , wiggle shifter lever, (on A/T cars the park switch blocks cranking) On M/T the clutch blocks cranking.
with any dMM
measure battery voltage before crank and during.
12.6v good. reseted.
cranking.
0 to 10v bad (weak battery or shorted starter motor)
11 and above good. and must crank, if not , starter is bad.
to prove starter is bad, check voltage at starter solenoid coil wire lug.
it must be at 11v cranking , below 8v it chatters, and fails.
if at 0v cranking this lug that means the Key start line is failing.
A/T switch not closes, or bad ignition switch.

2005 nissan murano jump started witnow it will only idle but will not accelerateh jumper cables reversed


NOT SURE WHAT YOU SAYING ? WHEN GETTING JUMP STARTED, THE BATTERY FROM THE GOOD VEHICLE MUST PLACE JUMPER CABLES ON BATTERY TERMINALS, THE CAR BEING JUMPED, YOURS, THE (+) TERMINAL IS JUMPED FROM GOOD BATTERY, THEN THE (-) JUMPER CABLE FROM GOOD BATTERY GETS CLAMPED TO YOUR CARS FRAME OR ENGINE BLOCK, NOT YOUR DEAD BATERY !!!!!!! YOU MAY HAVE SHORTED SOMETHING OUT, MAYBE EVEN YOUR COMPUTER CHIP IN THE ECM ! YOU NEED A MASTER TECH TO HELP YOU ON THIS ONE, I WOULD'NT TOUCH THIS WITH A TEN FOOT POLE ! SORRY, I COULD BE WRONG, BUT, NOT AN EASY ISSUE OVER THE NET !!!!!!

I changed the battery in my 2005 F150 super crew today. Now when i let off of the accelerator it chokes down and shuts off. Not sure what the problem could be. it happened riding down the road and idling...


Hello, This happens alot. To fix this, you need to fully charge the new battery before you install it. Although you have a 12Volt system, the battery needs to be at 13.2 to 13.6Volts for a full charge.

You will find that the battery can quit charging even at 70MPH. The reason for this problem appears to be a combination of two features on Ford vehicles. The Battery minder is an automatic cutoff Feature for when headlights or another drain exists in the system. The Battery minder makes a mistake and reads the charging of the low battery as a drain and disconnects the charging system. The other Feature is the Anti-Theft control, which can reduce Starter voltage and interfere with other electronics to make sure your truck does not go far if stolen.

Even if you jump start a Ford with a low battery, it can automatically disconnect the charging circuit within 2 or 3 minutes of removal of the jumper cables, unless the residual Voltage reads a full charge.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you. If you have a Voltmeter on your dash, glance at it once in awhile until this problem disappears.

Sure sounds like the battery. Probably not taking a charge. When you were driving it probably wasn't charging. Make sure you have really good connections on your jump start, that the car you are jumping from is running. You may have to accelerate the car you are jumping from. If you can get it started go to any of the auto parts stores, (advanced, auto zone, etc.) they will check it. They can also check to see if it is getting a charge. It probably has enough juice to run the electronics but not to turn the engine over. If not the battery they may able to indicate what may be the cause.

I can't where is located the battery on my lincoln2006 ls car 2006. The battery is dead and I would like to boost it. Any help? Thanks


You never boost a dead battery,
dangerous practice, if it has shorted cells

You always charge a battery first

Never use your LS to jump another car

You could ruin the electronics, on todays
high tech vehicles

Your battery is due to be replaced

It is in the trunk and has a vent to the outside,
so get the correct battery

Make sure the key is off when working on it

In my owners Manual it says the Fuse Panel is under the hood next to the Air Cleaner... what I see is the box that houses the Jumper terminal for jumping your battery...? Is it under that location...


What year, make and model is your vehicle? If it is a PT Cruiser you will need to remove the lid to the air filter housing to be able to see the fuse block.

The tranny well not engage in drive or reverce


i hate to say it but it's usually the little things we overlook. back to basics. make sure the trans fluid level is correct and check to see the condition. make sure it doesnt smell burned and that it's a nice clear red color. did you flush the trans cooler lines out? the bad fluid from the old trans may have contaminated the new trans. then make sure the linkage is correctly adjusted. otherwise, it seems like you may have gotten a bad transmission.

'97 caddy Devile can't jump start is there an electronic lockout?


yes, the battery is under the rear seat passenger side, it sounds like the cable ends are corroded, give them a good cleaning and try to jump it then. The starter is under the intake. It is no wonder they went into bankruptcy. I am in Detroit so I know this story well this late model Cadillac driveline is terrible to service

Flat battery


The battery is located under the rear bench seat cusion. there is a lead(posistive) in the engine compartment with a black plastic lid with a red plus sign on it. lift up the lid and attatch the positive lead to it. find a good ground like one of the metal eyelit brackets on the engine and connect the negative lead. the most important thing is not to cross the leads

For sure you will need new starter (actually starter relay) (that is why there is no engine turn-over). I am not sure about ignition coil and alternator, well it depends. You can get them at Autozone.com
And in a worsest scenario electronic control module (ECM/ECU).
You can buy used here

Below there is the electrical starting system scheme for your car.
You can get it on Autozone.com (just add new vehicle Masda 1998 Millienia and go to repair guide engine electrical starting system)
Hope that helps
Good Luck
P.S. Please kindly let me know if you need more info. I am here to help.
P.P.S. I would check with insurance they might cover the case
