Check the drive belt for the alternator as it appears loose or almost destroyed . The battery light on means that the alternator is not charging and the over heat means that the fan and water pump is not being driven fast enough.

1994 Dodge Ram Van B250 Check Engine light doesn't come on, van won't crank, won't start....nothing when key is turned on It is not battery......buzzer and such does come on when key is turned on


I know you said it isn't the battery, forgive me, be sure the battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. Use a test lite and follow battery voltage. Battery ground is important also.
The battery voltage may lead to junction block--fusible links--fuse box?
At the fuse-box, pick any component that has a fuse, check fuse circuit for voltage, use a test lite. Some fuses are hot all the time, some go hot with key on, test both ways.
If the starter motor won't crank, check voltage and ground for the starter motor. Usually two voltage circuits at the starter motor, one comes from the battery, hot all the time. The other circuit goes hot with key in the crank position and is probably wired through the clutch or neutral switch then through the starter relay, where applicable, to the starter motor. The starter motor usually grounds through the engine block, so, battery negative connection is important.
Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set. Safety is your responsibility. You don't want the vehicle to move during testing.

Car starts ok after a mile or two it will cut out restarts ok it does not happen when engine hot just on cold the battery light flashes and the engine light comes on


when it happens and your check engine light goes on, drive to your nearest Autozone or Advance Auto Parts. They will check the engine light for free and tell you exactly what is wrong with it

I have 2000 Nissan Sentra w/1.8 engine. Check engine light, airbag light have come on and the battery has "boiled over". Had previously noticed smell of gasoline and engine smelled "hot". Checked


battery do boil, may be bad battery, check the volts 12,5 off to 14.7 max running, this car needs head gasket checked by looking to se if the coolant is too high in the bottle or too low

Restating 2000 odyssey after warmed up


not sure what that means.
lets start over.
your saying car runs great, cold then hot.
then hard to restart a hot engine, right?
the light thing i dont understand
first off, when you stall and engine or just key ON.
the lamps all self test (read the operators guide there)
this is only a lamp test.
odd, the most important is skipped the CEL, check engine light.
is the engine stalling?
hot restarts, fails are: many.
  1. injector leaking at shut down.
  2. ECT reads to cold when hot. can be below caused
  3. Engine thermostat stuck open and restarts are over rich and floods. that hot engine must be at 180F or more,
  4. never did a 60,000 mile tuneup this decade?
  5. Fuel pressure too high.
i do tune ups first.
then check coolant temperatures, hot. 180F min, and holding or i kick the thermostat to the curb (new stat time)
if it sill dont want to hot start
out comes the scan tool
i scan it, got DTC errors.
is ECT reading 180F ? or above?

that is start on diagnosis.

Ymy battery light came on and everything on dash


shaking?
that means the engine stalled.
when the engine stalls. (do a tune up)
as the engine misfires, grossly , the 4 cyl . engine will shake.
and then it stalls
and many cluster lamps glow, CEL lamp. and charge glow.
you failed to look at engine RPM its wrong.
the normal hot RPM is about 800RPm for most cars.
and the engine EFI brain regulates there.
if the ECU brain can not regulate RPM at 800 that means you have gross misfiring, (lots of causes)
#1 cause, not doing tune ups, (aka, the 60k service points)

Ford explorer sportrac evap and catalyst not ready problem how to fix it?


One possible issue is a faulty thermostat. If the engine is not getting up to normal temp the emissions system will not go into closed loop.
I know its hot in Nevada now so thats just a suggestion.
The O2 sensors have heaters to make the exhaust gas hot quick so that the sensors can work.
Is the check engine light coming on - or is it just that the exhaust gas is not hot enough for the test equipment ?

My 96 grand cherokee 4.0L cut out at the traffic lights and wont start, not even turning over.Dash lights all there, battery is up.Not even a click from starter.anyone any ideas?


OK do the head lights go out then you try to start the engine if yes then its the battery term on battery hot if so dirty fitting (wash with Hot water and spray and refit tight and recheck the lights and starting..
IF auto gearbox then check the Park switch on box it has 3 wires on the side of box.(Under car)
CHECK the Poss + wire on the battery and also the Black earth wire to engine (is it broken off engine as there is also a thin earth wire for battery term to body so the lights will work but the starter takes out a lot of amps and if earth lead isent on engine then it wont turn over.
Check the small wire to the starter motor solinoid as well as a lot are push on terms and have come off if not a tight fit.
So check out all above,,, and let me know how you get on Ron

It could be the o2 sensor, Try going for a bit of a drive and then getting the emissions test done. When the engine is hot, the test reads better.
