Got fuel? Sounds crazy but you'd be surprised how many times I have poured a gallon of gasoline into someones car to get it to start.

No start condition is the most frustrating problem. More information on what happens when you turn the key would help......but basicaly you need 4 things to make a car start. Fuel. Air. Spark. Timing. - oops - 5 things - A key! Sure you are using right key? Had a couple once who had matching chevys and they swapped their keys and didn't know it. The key has a chip in it and only works on that car. Crazy, but the keys fit and turned in both cars. (Almost matching serial numbers? never figured that one out). Anyway, sorry. Fuel, Air, Spark and Timing are needed to start/run. Asked about fuel, but is the fuel getting to the cylinder? Do you have fuel pressure at the fuel rail(s)? When you turn the key to the "On" or "Run" position, do you hear a whining sound coming from the rear (fuel tank area)? That is your fuel pump priming the system. No sound? Check fuses and relays associated with the fuel system. Air. You need air to the cylinder to make it start and run. Check your air intake and filter. Really clogged and dirty filter? Pull it out and try to start. No go? Put it back (change ASAP) and look for Spark. Spark includes battery. Are there any loose connections to/from your battery? Really corroded terminals? Clean and tighten the connections. Try to start. No go? Pull the spark plug wire off an easily accessible spark plug (grasp the "boot" as close to the plug as possible and wiggle back and forth easily while pulling - these boots and wire connectors are fairly delicate). Remove the spark plug (be careful and dont break it or cross thread it when putting back in) and pop the wire back on it and set the plug on top of your engine (away from the spark plug hole). Have someone try to start the engine. You should see the spark plug fire its tiny bright blue spark. If not, you have found your problem. The problem is likely a bad coil, bad coil wire, distributor cap, rotor or a combination of these. If you have spark, then it has come down to timing. There are lots of things that affect timing in modern cars. There are a couple of sensors that jump out - Crankshaft and Camshaft position sensors. These will generally quit working while driving and you will likely notice the problem beforehand with it running really rough and getting crappy mileage, and the check engine light will come on and give you all kinds of hints. IF you turn the key and nothing happens, it might be a broken timing belt, but again, those usually fail under working conditions. It is possible (rare) the timing belt slipped/broke when you last shut off the engine, but I would point at the other 3 things first (Fuel, Air & Spark). Hope this helps. Good luck..

I have a 2009 Nissan Cube and when I try to start it you can tell it is trying to start but nothing. I even had it jumped just in case and still it wouldn't start any Ideas?


when you jump a car, you sometimes have to let the other car charge your battery for 5-15 minutes, in the case that a dead cell in your battery is dragging power from the system(s). Try charging the battery with another car, then try the jump again. if still no, you have 2 main alternatives- get your battery checked and get your alternator checked. There are other issues that can cause this type of non-starting situation, but a dead cell in the battery dragging down system power or a bad alternator, leading to an extremely dead battery would be your 2 leading causes. Other possibilities are simple, like spark pulgs/wires, to huge, like a broken timing belt/chain

Limp mode


Some vehicles shouldn't be jump started the conventional way some you may need to build the battery up before trying to start up. Then of course if just by chance you put the battery leads on back wards you can foul up the electronics on some vehicles hope this isn't your case.

Car not starting


When you try and start the car, does your dash light up? Do you have an I-key? If your dash doesn't light up, you may need to have your steering lock replaced. If your dash lights do come on, have someone stand behind your car and see if your brake lights come on while you push on the brake pedal. If your brake lights do not come on, than you may have a problem with your stop lamp switch.

2009 nissian cube service engine soon light what could it be engine runs ok


Take your car to Advanced Auto Parts or Auto Zone, or anywhere you can connect your car to a diagnostic computer for free. After receiving the code that code reader can also clear the code. The only code that won't clear are the really serious ones such as a failed transmission.

Car wont start with push start button


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.
