When you turn the key it acts like a dead battery. dim lights, cant roll windows up or down, radio thinks the battery is dead. if you keep trying most times it would usually start. some times wipers turn on when you turn the key. Is this the ignation cylinder or one of several boxes?

1. There is a wiring connection that is draining the battery.

2. The alternator needs to be checked.

Cheers.

There is a fuse for the windows in your fuse box. That fuse its more than likely open. I would start there.

Will not start, lights come on but engine won't turn just clicks.


Do the headlights dim when you turn the key? If so, the battery is flat and needs charging. You may need a new battery if it is 5 years or older.

have the head lights on and look at them while someone tries to start it...if they dim your battery is probably bad. If they don't dim you may have a bad solinoid on your starter.

Your alternator is not charging the Battery, I would replace the battery with a new gel battery and have the alternator checked, bets on your battery just died.

L turn key to on but car does not start. Headlights work but panel lights and radio dont. Window will not roll up or down.


If all of the fuses inside the car and in the engine compartment are good, you will need to check the key switch to see if it is providing power to these circuits. You will need a repair manual to get the wiring diagrams.
It's possible the car had a security system and it has failed, or a relay is dead, but I would start with the key switch.

Key is stuck in the ignition of our 07 GMC Acadia. The blinkers are not working at the rear of the vehicle, windows will not work. All of this happened at once.


The same thing happened to me yesterday. My blinkers are not working, windows will not roll down, automatic seats wil not move, and my key is stuck in the ignition. The battery was almost dead so my husband changed it; however, the problem still exists. What was the solution with your car? Thanks:)

Acts like dead battery, all instrament lights work, put on batt charger still woturn over acts like dead batt, is there some kind of fuse? or what? help plz


maybe it really is a dead battery. Headlights bright? dim? if the lights are bright and you try to start it and they go out or dim, either the battery is bad, or a bad connection. Try to wiggle the cables at the battery.

1990 buick no start turn key dash lights go out and all is dead


When you say "turn key dash lights go out and all is dead", do the lights come back on when you turn the key back to "off"?
With key off, try turning on your headlights- are they bright?
Flip to high beams-do they get brighter?
**If lights get dim while trying this, it's the battery-(dead/needs charged or replaced-which may have been caused by a bad alternator).
Leave lights on, now turn your ignition switch to "on"-do the lights get dim or go out?
Try and start the car-anything change?
If the lights were fine until you tried to start the car, more than likely your battery terminals need cleaning/tightening.
The lights should at least get dim when you try and start the car but only while the starter turns over: when the engine is running your lights (as well as all your other electrics) are powered by the alternator.
If you do all this and lights are okay all through this procedure, your problem is probably in your starter circuit. (Starter relay, ignition/key switch)

Hope this helps.

It wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens


sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps

2001 chevy blazer not starting


I had this same problem with my 1997 Blazer, which required a fuel pump replacement as Nitrobike said. The sign to look for is when you get in the Blazer, turn your key forward to the accessory position, but not the start position. You should hear the fuel pump charging. It sounds like a hissing or whirring noise for about 2-3 seconds while it pumps fuel into the lines to prime the engine.

Fuel pump replacement isn't cheap, about $700-$1000.
