You have a short somewhere between the battery and the starter. Follow yer battery terminals and look for damaged loom. Or an unsecrure ground...If you are turning the key and its not even clicking this is your problem... hHave a friend slam your car hood repeaditly and try starting the car at the same time. If you get a turn over or a click. Then you know its a BAd ground/connection somewhere between the battery and starter. If not still chase the terminals down to the starter and back again....Then double check all fuse's under the hood and in car...

You did not give the year and model, but generally I would start with the key switch. The switch controls everything you mentioned.

Our Jeep would cut out at different times and die or sometimes just cut out for a second or two, I replaced the Engine Position Sensor at the Bell Housing on the Drivers Side and it took care of that misterious problem.

My car was running fine all day yesterday until that night. I cut it off and it wouldnt start back up. Finally i got someone to give me a jump off and it worked but the dash lights kept on dimming in and...


You, my friend have a flat battery.

However, replacing the battery will not fix the problem, the battery is just a symptom, just like having cough syrup won't fix a cold, it will ojnly make your throat feel better.

What you need to do, is replace the battery, then get a multimeter, and check the voltage of the battery when the car is running at idle (in park/neutral), it should be 13.2-14.4v. If below this, im suspecting 12.0v or below, then you will have to have your charging system (alternator) checked.

Ml320 sometime it doesn't start it keep cranking and sometime doesn't do anything when i turn ignition key on then i wait 30 to 40 minute it start itself and work just great after that.


Mine did the same thing. Finally took it to the dealer and they replaced the crank sensor. No problems now, except $200 less money in my pocket.

We have a 2000 olds bravada that sometimes will crank and not start if you turn the key off then back on it will then start also sometimes it won't even crank and if you trun it off and back on it will...


As far as the turning of the key on and back off and then it starting, it sounds like a fuel pump problem. The fuel pump only primes for 2 sec and therefore cycling the key builds up enough pressure in order for the vehicle to start. As for why the vehicle is not cranking, that I do not know. I would check the battery terminals for corrosion and try to clean them.

'93 acura legend sometime will not start, or will start and cut off in a couple of seconds. Wait a while and it starts up. The wait time varies.


My 93 legend starts up when i turn the key, but sometimes when i release the key the car will cut off.
I had the fuel pump replaced some weeks ago thinking that was the problem but now its doing it again. Any solutions will be much appreciated.
