SOURCE: Car won't start, battery is good, won't even turn over.

These vehicles are prone to failures in the antitheft system. This will actually lock out the starter and/or injectors. Read thru this link, might be your problem.

SOURCE: 1992 mazda protege dx 4 dr won't start. Battery is only 2 months old. Makes a fast ticking sound from inside car similar to turn signal light out.

Hi Robin, As the battery is new and presumably not defective, I think you should suspect the soloniod fitted to the starter motor. If that component has become defective it will give the sound you're reporting. Depending on where you live in the world and the labour charges, you can have the contacter's replaced or the starter motor (if labour charges are high) Regards John

SOURCE: Battery drained now electrical problems

Okay all those things should have a fuse, I have an older ford and the fuse panel is located over the drivers left foot; yours should be in this general area. When you pull the cover off it will identify each of the fuses with a number 1, 2, 3 ,4, and so on, get your drivers manual and in the index at the back look up "fuses"; go to that page and it will tell you what number fuse benefits which electrical component.

So for instance it will say "what's not working?" look through the list and find "radio" and it will tell you for example "fuse #4" then it will tell you how many amps that fuse needs to be e.g. "30 amps". There should be some replacement fuses in the cover but if not you can buy them at the autoparts store for around $5, do not try to buy the cheapest fuses they have... they are cheaper for a reason.

Hello, My V5 2.3 2004 Beetle has suddenly developed a constant drain on the battery.


Is your alternator working properly and charging the battery ? After you turn your car off, can you hear any electric component running inside the engine compartment or inside the car ?

Electrical Issues/Battery Dying


I haven't heard about problems like that other than in a flood damaged vehicle.Did you buy it new?
To check for a battery drain yourself,disconnect the battery large cable and place a 12 volt test light between the cable and the battery positive.If you see a bright light on the test light you do have a vehicle drain,if it's dim don't worry about it.Now,if the light is bright pull one fuse at a time until the light goes dim,this will be the circuit draining and you can now trouble shoot that circuit.Don't cause a bright light by opening a door or turning on the key.DO NOT TRY AND START THE VEHICLE while the test light is hooked up.

Our jeep liberty won't start. the battery will not turn over when we try to jump it. all lights, radio, inside lights turning lights work. The electric key will not lock it unless it is used manualy....


have a load test done on the original battery as it appears that you have a shorted cell that is draining all the power from the jump battery.

Turnkey but car won't turn over


First check to see if you left a light on over night, This will cause the battery to drain down too weak to crank over engine. Turn off everything inside the vehicle and jump start the car with another vehicle using jumper cables

I tried to start my car this morning. There was no electricity at all and i mean at all, The power locks won't even work nothing. The car won't start, it's perfectly silent when you turn


You would need to use a meter or test light to find out what exactly is dead. It could be a short in the fuse box, or a bad connection in the harness, or at the battery or starter.
You may need a repair book or shop manual to get the wiring diagrams.
If nothing on the truck works, you would start at the battery cables and work back to the key switch.

I try to start my Lincoln town car and when I turn the ignition on the electrical battery system goes down but won't turn over. I have installed a new car battery


You would need to take a meter or test light and check for power after the battery. You could have a bad connection inside one of the cables.
There should be 12 volts at the battery post and at the cable end on the starter. Also be sure and check the ground connections.

Something is draining my battery on my 1998 Cadillac DeVille


I suspect parasitic draw. All vehicles draw some power from the batteries when the car is shut off. Certain accessories such as clocks, radios remote door openers and alarms always need power. The normal power used is called parasitic draw.

It is always a very low draw so it doesn't run the battery down. If you install accessories like shortwave radios or plug things like inverters and portable refrigerators into the accessory socket and operate them too long without the engine running you can drain your batteries to the point where the engine won't start. If there is an electrical short in the vehicle or a malfunctioning accessory it could be drawing much more than its normal load causing a drain on the batteries. If you leave your door open and the inside lights stay on all night you could drain the battery down till the car won't start.

Here's also a good resource for your car specifically on narrowing down the cause of the drain.

My battery keeps draining after 2-3 days, I've had the alternator checked, in which it is working properly. What could drain a battery after that short time span. the battery has been replaced twice


For starters, make sure that you don't leave any electrical components on. If that is not the issue then check the cars wiring. Have an electrician check it for you. My hunch is that there is some wiring somewhere that is not properly grounded and/or there is a short circuit somewhere. These two things will lead to battery drain especially since removing the key from the ignition does not turn all the electrical components off. (ex. the headlights, horn, tail lights, brake lights, interior light may be turned on even without the key.)
