2000 Mazda MPV, does not start and the transmision panel is bliking some time

Usually this is due to the position of the gear shift, brake or clutch. Most vehicles require one or more of the following to start the engine:

1) Transmission in "Park" (or "Neutral" if a standard)
2) Clutch Pressed in fully (if a standard)
3) Pressure on Brake Pedal (on some newer vehicles - enough to make brake lights come on)

If you're doing what you used to have to do normally to start the car, you may have a bent linkage that prevents the car's electronics from detecting that the car is indeed in park. If an auto transmission, try pushing the shifter further towards park - or in some cases - more towards the Neutral position.

Car won t start not battery

rule 1> check all fuses.
rule 2> clean battery lugs.

this is NO CRANK, no car starts , if it can't crank over, (mine i can push start (m/t trannys rule)
step 1 is jumper starting, with jumper cables.
if it starts, the battery is bad, or simple discharged.
if it dont jumper start. then the starting system is bad.
no transmission stated?
the A/T you wiggle the shiftlever, to start.
or start in NEUTRAL, this uses fresh start contacts.

if you get this far and it will NOT crank over
then hot wire the starter.
if that works,then the starter is good and the key line is bad
if the starter is still dead hot wired, the starter is bad (battery good )

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay

wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

If your starter goes out what can u do to start ur vehical back up after your starter goes out?

If you have a manual transmission, just turn the key on, but not to the start position. Get a buddy or 2 to push. Shft it into 2nd gear and push the clutch in, puush the car and let the clutch out.
if you have an automatic transmission, you have to replace the starter.

Car won't crank when trying to start it

Dead battery. Automatic transmission shifter not in PARK. Manual transmission clutch not pushed in or clutch switch defective. Bad battery cable connections. Bad battery cables. Bad starter relay. Bad starter motor. Faulty ignition switch. Malfunctioning transmission range sensor. Wrong key or unprogrammed key for the vehicle. Faulty PCM. Faulty IPC. Faulty BCM. Engine locked-up due to overheating or running out of oil. Interference from aftermarket equipment like an alarm system or remote start....that's some of the reasons this can happen.

It needs to be properly diagnosed so you do not go broke trying to diagnose it by randomly replacing parts.

My car wont start unless it is jumped or push started all the lights come on bright when i turn the key they go dim but the car makes no noise at all i already replaced the battery and its still doing it

Hi, odds are your solenoid has shorted out. Remove the starter and have it tested at your local parts chain. To remove the starter, first remove the negative terminal from the battery, then remove the wires from the solenoid. Then remove the 2 starter bolts--they thread in from the transmission side. See the pics below, and let me know if you have any questions.

I have a 1998 Chevy Cavalier that I can not figure out why it won't start. The following list of parts are brand new: Battery, PCM, Park Neutral Safety Switch, Alternator, Ignition Switch, and finally...

Your car has a sealed transmission, in order to check it you have to go to the dealer or a transmission

shop, its not owner servicable. takes dextron vi, 4 speed 7.4 quarts, 3 speed 4quarts

And as far as the no start, are your plugs getting voltage, if not check your coil, if there is no spark

to your plugs the car will not fire up. good luck!

My starter motor has just died in my honda odyssey 1996- is there a way I can get it started so I can drive it to my mechanic?

Are you sure it IS the starter, and not just a bad or weak battery, or a bad connection from the battery to the starter?

If your car is an Automatic transmission, and you do indeed have a bad starter, then, sorry, there is no way to get it started. it will need to be towed.

If, however, you have a STANDARD, or manual, transmission, then you might get a friend or two to help you PUSH start it. Put the car in first, or second gear, hold the clutch in, then get the car rolling (just a couple miles an hour will do it) and then let out the clutch. The car will start, and the second it does, push the clutch back in so that you don't accidentally stall it out (your friends will get mad, cause now they have to push again).

I hope the car is already headed downhill !!
