He sounds , not too good.
here is a check list.
1: fuses all good, check them.
2: battery always at 12.6vdc rested 4hrs or overnight.
no?, then you have a bad battery ! or phantom drain .
3: start car, battery voltage at 13.3v to 15v, if not charge system is kaput. (note i didnt say a part bad)

one of those. is bad.
the charge lamp must be on , key on, then go off running, is it?

if you have phantom drain, here is the test.

I had the same problem with my 99 corolla. It was the solenoid contacts in the starter...they were worn down and didn't either get enough contact or sometimes kind of melt togther (that's why starter spins even after you turn off car and key). Got new contacts and car starts like new!

Why is battery draining ford 2002 Taurus SES


Remove negative cable from battery, connect a test light to negative terminal, opposite end off light to negative battery post. ( let sit for 3 to 5 minutes). Then start pulling fuses, when the light goes out that's your bad circuit. God-Bless! Its worth a try.

I have a 2004 Jaguar X-Type 3.0. It had a dead battery for about 6 months. I charged the battery and when I turn the ignition key it click 1 or 2 times (sounds like an old light switch). Any suggestions?


there is a good chance that the battery is shot may have charged it but if put under load it wont allow enough voltage to spin starter also clean the terminals

Battery is OK. However, nothing happens when I turn the ignition key. Problem had been intermittent until today


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.
Could be a dead spot in the starter. Do the warning lights work correctly ?

It won't start. Dead. If I hold the key turned


have the battery checked before you replace it,also have the alternator checked if it is going bad it will kill the battery even if there is nothing on.Also have the starter checked sounds like the starter solenoid could be havering issues.Hope this gives you a direction to start looking.

Anti-theft system seems to have been activated?


Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key". The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no trouble since then.

1999 Toyota Corolla CE. For about 2 months, the engine does not start immediately. I need to turn the ignition key several times until it starts. Each time when I turn the key, a clicking sound happens...


it sounds like either your having a short at the starter or the ignition switch is bad, I am leaning towards the issue being the starter, usually when the ignition switch is going bad there will be no click,
