Sounds like the battery is dead and the Alternator may be the culprit. First thing I would do it pull the Battery have it tested and if you feel like it pull the alternator and have it tested. Your local auto parts house will do both for free. Your lights will turn on because it takes less power than it does to operate a window motor or start the truck.

SOURCE: starter wont engage

The problem is either the starter solinoid (located on fender near battery) or you are not getting power to the "s" terminal on the starter solinoid from the ignition switch. If you follow the positive battery cable from the battery you'll follow it to the solinoid. Remove the small wire from the terminal marked "s" on the solinoid and using a screwdriver jump from "s" terminal (not the wire) to where positive battery cable connects to solinoid. (with battery connected). If starter doesn't do anything the solinoid is bad. If starter cranks then you are not getting voltage from ignition switch through "s" terminal wire.

SOURCE: My 89 chevy pickup headlights

Don't need one, Unplug from switch and with switch in hand replug together. then go back far enough on harness to where you can see some color then trace each wire back to the switch plug. You can buy the plug and wires in pigtail form and just match up the wires. Replace the switch for sure and find out why it shorted. Fire Hazard risk. Good luck

SOURCE: it wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens

sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps

SOURCE: my 89 mazda 323 turns over but wont start

Last week my 323 89' Mazda stop working as I was driving it in middle of the street, I pushed to the side. it would not start, the starter sounded ok, but the car just didnt start, I checked the fuses, gas pump, and all seemed to be ok, finally with the help of a friend we found out that the ignition rotor at the distributor wasnt working we then replace it with a new one from autozone , is about 5 dollars, now it works just fine, big problem easy solution.

MY GIRLFRIENDS 89 CHEVY CELEBRITY DIES WHEN TURNING


Try replacing the fuel pump relay, or you may have a PCM (computer) and prom failing. Underneath your hood, behind the passenger side headlight, behind the core support, is a bank of 2-8 relays. One of those relays is the relay needed for your fuel pump. There will also be a fuel pump relay fuse located there.
Inspect that area for any corrosion or loose wire (bad ground) Good luck and here is a link for you to retrieve your DTC codes and that may help you resolve the car's issue.

My 99 Expedition just died while driving. After towing it home it now wont even turn over. I can jump the starter and it engages and I have power to dome light and headlights but when I turn key nothing (...


I has an 86 Mustang that did a similar thing and it turned out that the battery actually shorted out. This happens when one of the plates inside the battery brakes off and then touches another plate. When mine died it was like I turned the iginition off. It wouldn't turn over even with jumper cables.

All Accessories will quit working while driving 2002 Chevy Z71


Hello;
It sounds as if the main power lead could be loose powering the dash. There are several main power blocks, make sure your connections are clean and tight. I have seen the circuit board for the dash fail but not often. Hope this helps.
