There will be some fusable links at the + of the battery they look like plane wire but have very soft insulation you will need a tester light or multimeter to chec if the power is going through them and have a look at the inside of the battery terms for yukky corosion one more thing check the cable giong to the body from the - term that it is connecting properly tp the body surface

    First take a look at the fuses and see if the ignition fuse is burnt, Check to see if the cable and wires are clean and making good contact at the starter. Just loosen the nut and wiggle it a bit. Good luck.

08 Chevy Cobalt wont start. Battery is good.?

Generally speaking, if the starter was dead it would not jump start.
Sounds like the key switch or the neutral safety switch.
You would need to know if the starter has power when the key is in the start position.

Check charging system on dash and car won't start

This happened to me in a 2006 Ford Fusion. Turned on the key, read out says "check charging system". Turns over slow...but just wont start. Found out there is a fuel reset switch that can be tripped. Mine must have when I took out the battery, not sure. Anyway, There is a button behind the passenger side kick panel. If you lay on the floor board and reach over the top of the panel (toward the outside of car) you can feel a ring with a button inside it. What I did was to push it and hold for a couple seconds with the key off, then did it again with the key to on. Turned the ignition off, then tried to start it and it fired right up. Smelled of over fueling due to my heavy foot when it wouldn't start. It eventually evened out and is running fine. Hope this helps.
Before all this, I made sure all my connections at the battery and all grounds were clean and making good contact. You would think "charging system" should be battery related but it wasn't. Once cleaned, same slow starting, no run scenario. Try the fuel reset, it may save you some $$$. Good Luck

Car wont turn over. Heat, radio, headlights and read defroster, dome light and horn and power door locks all work. what could stop the car from turning over?

There are a number of things that can prevent your engine from turning over. You should check the basics first, make sure the battery is fully charged, the battery cable connections at the battery are clean and tight. Make sure when you turn the key on in the run position, the check engine light is on before you crank the engine. Make sure there are not blown fuses in the underhood and interior fuse boxes that are related to the starting and engine control systems.
Good luck.

Take off the alternator and have it checked at a parts store.When the alternator stops working,your car runs off battery power,which it will quickly drain.Your cars starts from the battery and then continues to run off of the alternator,charging the battery for reserves.

91 camry wont start fuse problem?..the car is great running cond.

Probably the battery. The battery may have enough voltage for the lights to work; however, this may not be enough voltage to start the car.

Find someone with cables to give you a jump start. Then take the car by an auto parts place and have them load test your battery. Most stores do this at no charge.

Van wont start

Hello Sir,

as u say, the problem symtoms are those when there is battery problem, maybe its low.

or else, whenever if u have locked ur car with the remote control center locking system n then opened the door with with the tradition keys, then ur car wont respond to any of ur keys untill u unlock it using the remote.

I am sure the problem lies with the battery.

or maximum there will be a wire loose connection.

thank u sir, if u feel my solution is worth reading then plz vote m/ rate me.

thank u sir

Ford contour wont start battery charged lights working

If headlight do not come on, leave them on and start check ground and power.
If headlights do come on then locate the starter and fine something to tape on it, not too hard,
but before u can do this have someone set inside the car with the key turn in the start position...

You left the key too long in the ignition switch. This sent an alert as if it were being stolen. Remove the key from ignition. Lock all doors. Wait about an hour or so. When you open the doors, put your foot down on the gas pedal and release. Put the key into the ignition and turn the car on.  Make sure you have the shift in "Park" position.
