SOURCE: Car won't start.

Hello again, You could now have a driver authorization problem.
1. Plug your central locking pump back in.
2. Make sure that your remote batteries are good.
3. Lock and unlock the car with the remote.
4. Try to start car.
5. If no start you may have to synchronize the anti-theft system.
6. Point remote at the interior rear view mirror, press button on remote twice and turn ignition key key on within 30 seconds.
7. Turn key off and then back on and try to start car.
If car starts, you will need to find out why the pump won't shut off.
You may be able to unplug the pump after you are able to start the car but this I am not sure of.
CYA, Gator241

SOURCE: I have not start my car and the battery went dead

If you dont have a "jump block" under the hood, you can carefully attach a decent size wire to the positive (large) terminal of the starter and the ground to anywhere on the engine block. that will give you a decent power source to open the trunk.

SOURCE: mercedes s430 wont start car wont shift out of park

is check engine light on or visit workshop displayed on cluster while engine is running. If so there is a electrical malfunction-although if the linkage is disconnected from the trans to the throttle the gear recognition switch would send an implausible signal and set a code. this code is not a priority code and may not set the light right away. A lot of times one of the linkage rod retaining clips falls off. Look under the car and you will see a rod that attaches to the shifter box arm and to the transmission neutral safety switch(manual valve) arm. It may actually be resting on the ground. If not look and make sure it is secure. Next there is a slot on the shifter wood where you can put a flat blade screw driver in and release the manual shifter lock. Your owners manual will describe how to do this. Depending on what failed the vehicle may be in what is called limo home mode where the trans does not shift out of second gear and the throttle is not very responsive. It will give you the opportunity to move the car to a safe location possibly even a repair shop. The shifter boxes are are a sealed unit with no replaceable parts. They are slightly expensive and require an s.d.s. machine to replace because they must be programmed and version coded. I hope I have been helpful

Use a proper key to open the door, pop the hood and put the battery on to charge.

Remote starters are notorious for causing problems.

I suspect the battery isn't holding a charge. Load test the battery. Otherwise it could be the starter.

My battery went dead and after i charged the battery the air conditioning does not cool


What happens is, you have a battery and an alternator. The alternator charges the battery when the engine is running. It can only put out so many amps at 12 volts. A/C compressor runs off the engine, but the clutch for it is electric, and the blower fan is electric. When these are running, unless the car engine is running at above idle RPM's, your alternator may not be actually putting out enough amps to run the A/C AND charge the battery. So it is possible for the battery to go dead, especially if you start the car more than a couple times with out letting the battery charge. It happened to a friend of mine. He delivered newspapers, and it was a hot summer day. His A/C was on, plus, his car had 2 electric fans for the radiator. He was only idling along delivering his papers, and at one point he shut his car off. When he went to re-start, it was dead. He called me and I gave him a jump start, and told him to go for a ride down the expressway, to charge his battery. You see the A/C took say 30 amps, then each cooling fan for his radiator took say 20 amps a piece, then add in the stereo, and the power it takes to fire the spark plugs, and there wasn't enough left to charge the battery. Most cars these days only have 100 amp alternators. Older cars have less

02 maxima battery wont stay charged. Took to auto zone to have battery and alternator checked and they say=its fine. purchased new battery and three days later it was dead/Altenator is charging at 12.9


that seems very, very low. almost what the battery voltage is supposed to be. actually i would say that's not charging and you need to replace the alternator. normal voltage output is 13.5-15 volts

My battery wont hold a charge even when jumped.


The battery may have been bad. They replaced it, and probably neglected to test the alternator. You now need to have both tested.

A battery with a dead cell will not charge. Remove battery, take to Auto Zone get it checked. If battery is dead, replace with the best and biggest CCA available. Only cost $1.00 to go first class.
