SOURCE: Battery not charging

I would check the altenator again. if you didnt disconnect the battery and a spark shot off while installing the new starter it could have decharged the spool on the inside of the altenator to where the spool no longer charges. if you have the altenator checked for consistant charging and it comes up good check the relay for the altenator it most like will have messed up the relay. to make a long solution short check the relay for the altenator it will be in the relay box under the hood.

SOURCE: car wont start

its the Battery either it needs replaced all together or your terminals are not tight enough. Best way to check that for sure is try turning on your interior light if it is very dim or not on at all REPLACE

How do i get my car running again it broke down i got a jump made it home and next day wont start no dash lights radio it doesnt do anything what is wrong ?


Give the battery a boost. If the car starts and stays running, chances are the alternator is ok. If the vehicle will not stay running, once boosted, there will be a charging system problem. Possible alternator. If the battery is more than 5 years old, it can also cause problems as the life expectancy of a battery is 5 yrs. Very doubtful you have a starter issue. I would bet on a battery or alternator/wiring issue

2010 corolla wont crank and start


Sounds like your ECM / ECU may need to be re-flashed at the dealer, have you tried pulling the codes? The check engine light does NOT need to be on for it to have codes stored. The starting issue could be caused by the TPS / MAF / MAP sensors, the flashing of the odometer could be something with your PSOM chip or your VSS sensor. Pull the codes see what you get.

Have a 1998 ford windstar if wont start and the security light flashes when trying to start it


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

Get it diagnosed correctly. This is why we have 20,000 dollars of diagnostic equipment. If we were to guess I would of suggested the fuel pump.

This defineatly was not an alternator issue or a starter issue or battery by what your symptoms were.

You could have a failed computer or crank sensor or ignition module. Only testing will tell you what is not at fault and what is.

Car wont start. lights and everything comes on but no crank when I try to start car. been having to start car twice to get it to turn on. 1999 dodge intrepid


Look into the starter motor.

Car is 10 years old and starter motor problem is linked to startup issues in cars. Common issue

Will not start


It could be a timing belt issue, or your starter is no good... taking too much power.
