How old is the battery? Most batteries are good for 60 months (5 years) after that time they really are worn out. The lead sluffs off the plates and piles up in the bottom and then shorts out one cell. Bite the bullet and replace the Battery if it is over 4 years old.

Check that battery by having a load test done as you may have a dead cell.

Change the flasher to an electronic unit. They are far less likely to give you trouble.

SOURCE: Our 2006 Chevy Cobalt is

OK, if the battery is fully charged (I would slow charge it 3 days after leaving the headlights on), then the starter could be bad. However, I would definitely check out that battery thoroughly before replacing an expensive part like a starter.

Batteries have an average life of only 3 years. If the 2006 Cobalt has the original battery, it's possible that it can run the headlights and the instruments and not have enough CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) to start the car. The starter takes the most amount of energy or amperage of any accessory on the vehicle.

SOURCE: Replaced stock bcm with used.

A used body control can be used in a vehicle other than the vehicle it was installed in. the body control module when first installed is programmed with the vehicle vin number. the vin number can not be changed was it was written to the BCM. the oprions can be always change in the BCM but not the VIN number. basically the used bcm you have installed has the vin number from the vehicle was installed in, now the vin number in the used BCM doesnt match all the other control modules

92 Toyota 4runner truck was running perfectly fine Later in the day went to start and the alarm just started going off and wouldn't turn off. Truck won't start even with keys turned in igniti


The alarm system somehow got activated , this is usually because the battery becomes discharged or disconnected try doing this:
Remove the key from the ignition
disconnect the negative battery terminal
put the key back in and turn to ON
exit the truck and leave door open
reconnect the battery terminal
get in and leave door open, if the alarm horn stays off it should start.

I have a 2000 Subaru Outback and recently the ABS light came on while driving out to my parents'. When I got there, I called our mechanic and made an appointment for later in the week to have it...


Here is an idea. Check the connections between the battery and the car's ground and the starter. Then find the ground cable which connects the engine to the car and check the connections there as well. Often times odd ball electrical problems are caused by a faulty ground, especially when there is a starter issue. May help, costs nothing but a few moments of your time, and once in a dozen times it is the problem.

Hi
Pop into to your local garage and have a diagnostic test carried out.
Listen to the advise given. It may save you lots of money, especially if you start the "guessing" game.
It does sound like a part may be blocked or failed though, but the sytem needs to be tested thoroughly first.
Good luck

I have a 1997 Pontiac Bonneville SE, and the battery may be bad. Though I wouldn't be asking if I thought there was the possibility that the starter is the culprit. what happens is it...


It sounds like it's just a bad battery. If it was the starter, it wouldn't even turn over like you're describing. If a starter goes bad, you typically just a hear a click and it won't even attempt to turn the engine over.

Good Luck!
