It sounds like you have a parasitic draw on your battery, without wiring diagrams, and a good understanding of electrical systems andsub systems, finding and fixing the parasitic draw is going to be impossible. You may be substantially better in the long run taking your vehicle to a shop, and having them diagnose the cause of your parasitic draw.

SOURCE: 96 jetta treck wont start ( radio written SAVE )

I will work with some assumptions here.Your radio has a hole in each corner of it.Use nails and insert into the holes.GENTLY pull radio out and there should be a sticker on the body of the radio with a 4 number code.Write it down and put the radio back into the dash.Hold the scan and mode button in at the same time and the word SAFE will go away.Now,your station preset buttons are the keyboard.Push the #1 preset repeatedly until the first number in your code is displayed.then on to 2 for the 2nd and so on.After you put in your 4 number code,hold in scan and mode again and in about 2 seconds,tunes!!!!!You might get lucky and call your local vw dealer with the VIN of your car.They might have your code on file.Will save you a lot of trouble as the radio is not easy to remove.
best of luck!!!

SOURCE: Car wont start, no clicks no sound

make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?

if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

good luck

The oil change wouldn't cause this problem. Just in-case, check the engine oil level.

There are many emission sensors in the car that will make the engine light come ON. Best way to find out what's going on is to have an auto-parts store hook up a engine code reader and tell you what the code means. Most auto-part store will do this for free.

this can mean only 2 things.
1: spark wires are dead. all 4, kinda hard to believe huh?
2: the dizzy is way off time. so time the dizzy and now spark
lands on each wire term.
if not a dizzy engine, post exact version of engine and country.

Have replaced the battery on a nissan almera tino and now it won't start. It turns over OK but will not fire.


I changed the battery as it was struggling to start over a few days and then died completely after being left over a weekend. After the replacement all electrics worked but the engine wouldn't turn over, it just clicked. There was no immobiliser warning or messages on the screen. I tried a few of the things on this forum but it turned out to be a broken battery earth cable where it attaches to the gearbox under the car. I removed the cable (easier with the battery tray removed) then had a new lug attached to the end. Total cost 1.50. phew!

Vitara 1.6 16v 96' wont start


There are multiple reasons. Need to start the process of elimination. First things first, the cheapest thing to check is the battery. I've had several vehicles which displayed the same thing: ran one day, wouldn't start the next. Fortunately, they just needed a battery.

After that, could be other issues: alternator, starter, possible timing component issues, fuel pump.

I know this is vague, but, the it is sort of a loaded question.

Does it crank over? The battery you unhooked? It was one of the coach batteries right? It has a single battery for the engine and two for the coach?

Car won't start. It turns over and clicks fast, but nothing. Dad says it may be the starter, but I don't know where the starter is to tap it to see. Can you help?


Right side, down under. You say it turns over? if it turns over, the starter is working. Turning over and cranking are the same thing. It either CRANKS or it DOES NOT CRANK. or it CRANKS but wont RUN. Explain things in these terms so theres no confusion.

02 Chevy Cavalier - Fast Clicking Noise When I Turn Key


your battery isnt holding enough charge to crank the starter.thats what the clicking is. try charging you battery for a good 8-10 hours, if it still does the same thing you'll need a new battery.

My car won't start - no previous problems with starter


Sir,

ou should put some marvel mystery oil in each cylinder and turn the engine over by hand.. Of course you have to remove all the plugs first and leave them out until you get the engine ready. let sit for an hour and repeat the process. Make sure the water and oil are changed. after you have repeated the oil in the cylinders three times. You are ready to try and start the engine. check all wiring and battery for proper function. turn the engine over with the starter. Replace the spark plugs (recommend new ones) and then try to start the engine.

The best way to start any engine that has been sitting for any time longer than a year is to flush the old gas out. Gas that has been sitting for too long will go bad unless a gas preservative was added to it. Then change the oil and the oil filter. The coolant in the engine block, and the radiator should be flush out, and only clean water she be added without the thermostat. A lot of sediment from the iron in the block and from the radiator will build up and the coolant. This a also a good time to examine all rubber parts for cracks or leaks. It's would also a good time to change the spark plugs and wires. Examine the carburetor make sure its that it free of debris spider webs or any thing else. It would ofnot hurt to change the fuel filter pre-carburetor. All this with a fresh battery, and lots of luck you're good to go.



Thanks
Good Luck

Bonneville wont start


Check your battery cables,, they are probably loose or corroded. Side mount batteries that hold multiple cables have this problem that occurs over an extended period of time. Cleaning the connections and retightening the hold down bolt may fix it. Sometimes a 3/8 bolt and a washer with a nut can be used to get
a more positive holding force to keep the cable tight.
