SOURCE: 1994 toyota estima intermittant start problem. makes click

This could be a grounding problem. Check all battery connections. Also check motor to body ground strap for corrosion. Check battery to motor ground and battery to body ground. Even if the ground looks allright it can be corroder underneath, so you have to take the ground bolt off to clean it.

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

SOURCE: 99 Mercury Cougar won't start. I turned key to start, has current to relay. Jumped relay, will turn over. Spark to plugs but no fuel to injectors. Fuel pressure in fuel rail. No check engine

Have you checked the automatic shut down relay ?
It powers the injectors from a 20amp fuse number 5.

Car wont start, ignition goes on


Probably your battery is dead,enough for the lights or your alternator is bad which is what keeps the battery charged. Or your car is out of petrol.

Try to start the car with the lights on...if the lights go dead when you turn the key then the battery has low voltage. Try jump starting the car.

if the lights stay bright and you hear click, the starter is bad. Try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times. If the car turns over, then get at starter. -

I have a problem with a 2008 Dodge Charger, my battery went bad and I had to jump it off to take it and get a new battery put in but now my new battery won't start my car not even when the new battery...


When you jump started the vehicle, it started as normal and you drove to a shop to have a new battery installed.?? Correct??

1. Who removed the old battery and installed the new one?

2. Did the car start normally immediately after the new battery was fitted? How frequently were you able to drive the car on the new battery before the problem you described appeared?

3. Has anything been done to the vehicle since the new battery was fitted.?

Startproblem with my citroen c4


could be several things, I would check battery terminal connections make sure they are tight and clean. how old is battery? could need replaced. if jump starting works I would suspect battery, once running is alternator charging? turn head lights on before trying to start, are they bright? leave them on and watch them while someone trys to start car, do they dim or stay bright? if the dim quckly with click that your hearing you may need a starter, if they stay bright, most likey a battery or bad terminal connections.

Grab a test light go down to the starter, hook to a good ground and probe the battery cable. If that has power probe the solenoid engage wire( its the little one) have a helper turn the key to start if that gets power replace the starter.
