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.

What is the most battery draining part when car sits over night


hi Larue.
You're late for work and rush out to your car, only to find that it won't start. The headlights are dim and the engine simply refuses to turn over. You realize that your battery is dead. But how did this happen? There are five main causes of car battery drain or failure.

Human error

You've probably done this at least once in your life - you come home from work, tired and not really thinking, and left the headlights on or didn't completely close the trunk. Overnight the battery drains, and in the morning your car won't start. Many new cars alert you if you've left your lights on, but may not have alerts for other components.

Parasitic drain

Parasitic drain is due to components in your vehicle continuing to run after the key is turned off. Some parasitic drain is normal - your battery delivers enough energy to keep things, like your clock, radio presets, and security alarm operational at all times. However, if there's an electrical problem, parasitic drain can exceed what's normal and deplete the battery.

Bad charging

If your charging system isn't working properly, your car battery can drain even while you're driving. Many cars power their lights, radio, and other systems from the alternator, which can make the battery drain worse if there's a charging problem. Then you'll be stranded at roadside with a stalled car that needs a boost. And even then, bad charging will drain your car's battery. A professional mechanic will be able to diagnose what's causing a charging problem.

Defective alternator diode

A car alternator recharges the battery and powers certain electrical systems. If your alternator has a bad diode, your battery can drain. The bad diode can cause the circuit to charge even when the engine is shut off, and you end up in the morning with a car that won't start.

Old battery

If your battery is old, it might not hold a full charge. If your car consistently won't start, it's possible that the battery is worn out. You should generally replace your car battery every 4-5 years. If your car isn't starting consistently, and your battery is old, battery replacement should be the first thing you consider.
Having a battery that won't hold a charge is frustrating, and figuring out what's causing the problem can be tricky. Assuming that the cause of the battery drain is not human error, you will need the assistance of a qualified mechanic who can diagnose your car's electrical problemsand determine if it is the battery or something else in the electrical system.

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 ?

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.

1992 toyota pickup won't start and battery won't charge


Sounds like your battery is just too dead, has enough juice to light up the system for a minute but cranking drains it and if it wont charge then deff fried, you could try removing the battery and starting the car with cables to confirm the starter still works. If a bettery is too dead then when you are jumping it, it takes to much of the power just trying to get through the battery.
