Check the grounds at the starter solenoid and usually the solenoid has a bad ground. make sure there is a ground to the body and the chassis.

  1. Check the wiring of the new radio installed as follows..
  2. Disconnect battery ground
  3. verify radio ground wire is grounded to metal
  4. verify radio hot wire (normally red and thick) is connected to a power source that is off when the ignition key is in the "off" position.
  5. verify that the always hot wire is connect to a constant 12v power supply even with the ignition off.
  6. make sure the pwr antenna wire if not used is taped at the tip and not touching any metal.
  7. verify that all speaker wires are connect correctly and not shorted to ground.
  8. connect battery ground you may get a small spark if your courtesy lites work.
  9. start engine verify your battery is charging by disconnecting the battery ground cable while the engine is running, it should continue running if it don't, alternator maybe bad.
  10. If it continues running problem solved..

SOURCE: 2000 ford windstar won't crank over,but pats keys good, and batt.

First thing I would check is to see if you have power at the trigger wire of the starter motor while someone is trying to start the vehicle for you. It will be a Yellow with a light blue trace. If you do then I would check to see if the main battery cable has power to it all the time when someone is trying to crank it. If it does then I would hold a test light on the case of the starter motor and have someone try to crank it. Make sure that the ground you use for this test is on the negative battery terminal not just anywhere on the car. If the test light lights while you are cranking it then you have a bad ground. Hook up a set of jumper cables from the battery negative terminal and clamp it directly on to your starter motor and see if it starts. If you check it and the test light doesn't light up and all the other checks are good then your starter motor has failed. If one of the other tests has failed then you have a starter relay problem or something else. let me know what you find out.

This may be a dumb suggestion, but have you tried changing out the battery? I had a similar problem and changed my solenoid, cleaned all grounds and wiring connections and after all that it ended up that a cell was shorting out in the battery. Something to check out anyways. Good luck and hope this helps.

There should not be any voltage to the control wire on the starter except with the key in the "Start" position and the transmission shifter in "Park" or "Neutral". By "control wire" I mean the small wire attached to the small terminal on the starter solenoid.

If the large wire connected to the large connector on the starter solenoid is what you are calling the "control wire", then the voltage readings you gave indicate a poor connection of the battey cable.

01 aurora sitting in my car 5min nd everything worked,tried to turn on engine it went click and everything died like dead batt.tried to jump,nothing,charged 24hours,nothing,charger says batt is full.


Check for bad connections art the battery. If they are good, get a volt meter and start testing the connections going back to the under hood fuse box. If everything is dead, you must have a blown fusible link or a bad connection somewhere between the battery and the fuse block.

No start or no crank. no radio no radio ,power locks ,headlights or brakes light.


Have you checked the battery? Are you sure everything is connected/? If you can't get it to start because you have no juice but have a new battery, then that's a problem. Or something is draining the hell out of your battery. Check the fuses.

It just wont start i turn the key and there is nothing the fuel pump comes on but nothing else and i have tried everything i can think of. the only way to start it is by doing a rolling start.


Check signal wire from starter to either solenoid or start relay. Make sure signal wire is connected to starter properly. One side of the start relay leads to the starter the other to the ignition switch. Check sinal wire is connected. If so test signal wire w/ tester. Ohms setting. Test relay ohms setting. Relays usualy dont go bad. Test ignition switch w/ tester. DC voltage 12 volts or greater. Black terminal to neg or ground. Red terminal to ignition switch side of relay/solenoid. Turn ignition swich to start look for voltage reading. Depending on the vehicle it could be anywhere from 6 to 12 volts. If no voltage reading somthing has failed on the ignition switch side of relay. A relay is simalar to a fuse and will be housed w other fuses under the hood. Also all fuses should be checked. This can be done w the ohms setting on tester without removing the fuse. Look at the top of the fuse there are exposed points that allow the tip of each lead to contact the fuse. Only some fuses are like this. Remember signal wire or fuses this is probably going to be your problem.

Doesnt want to even attempt to start the battery is good


Try tapping the starter with a hammer while someone bumps the key. If it tries to turn replace starter if nothing happens then i would say the starter solenoid is probably bad.

1994 pontiac sunbird;i turn key on everything inside works.turn key over i get nothing


could have faulty starter or starter solenoid.hook test light make you a test light with longer wires and 12 volt bulb with socket go junk yard find good bulb with socket.hook test light to starter and see if test light lights up if so your starter or starter solenoid has a open winding. if test light dont light up could have blowed fuse to transmission neutral switch or neutral switch could be bad.try to start vechicle in neutral if vechicle starts your transmission neutral switch out of adjustment or neutral switch faulty check make sure wires going to neutral switch is damaged.

2003 galant es. am/fm/cd radio does not work. all fuses good. what next?


the next step is pull the radio out and check to see if u have battery power to the radio, with the key turned to on you should have 12 volts to two wires, use a 12 volt test light to check this, they are avail from any auto parts store for about $4, if u have 12 volts as stated above the radio has failed and will need to be replaced or repaired.

Check guages light came on , 9 volts on guage,\radio died. charged batt. ran yesterday, today it wont start. battery has 12 v. turns over but no start.no guages work,when key is on. checked fuses,ok. no...


The main problem is the alternator has went out,and the battery voltage dropped to low for it to run.Most likely the computer has lost memory sense the battery was dead,or close to it.I don`t know the year,but this is most likely what happened.The computer would have to be reflashed at the dealership.But be sure to look for a main fuse to be blown,check all fuses,this might have happened,and not the computer.

Charging problem 1991 volvo 240


14.6 means your voltage regulator or diode is suspect Despite having new alternator .Ive cross refrenced your smptoms in the haynes workshop manual and alternator is your only end answer.The haynes test is to start vehicle with multi meter connected across the battery terminals,increase the engine speed until the reading remains steady should be approximately 12 to 13v and no more than 14v.switch on as many accessories as possible(headlights heater blower radio etc)check that the alternator maintains the regulated voltage at around 13 to 14v.If the regulated voltage is not as stated then alternator is to be repaired/replaced.Good luck with it and a happy new year.
