FUEL! start with the fuse, then the relay, then the pump in the tank. Probably needs a fuel pump

I cant start my 2006 charger, even though the lights, radio come on


Do you hear a clicking sound but nothing else?
If so, it sounds like your battery is dying, enough juice to power your small things...eg radio, lights but not enough juice to turn your engine over

Hope this helps

When I start the car, it dies when I press the accelerator


this sounds like a mass air flow sensor problem. they make a cleaner for the m.a.f. try that first and see if your problem goes away. if not you might have to replace the m.a.f.

Things seem to short out when brakes are applied es300 1993


It sounds like you may have a bad alternator, when your jumpers are hooked up, it has proper juice to run the accessories, but when you disconnect the jumpers the car is running on what little juice the battery has. The engine moving around, yes it very well may be the mounts, but that would not cause it to die like it is. When you step on your brake petal, it iluminates the brake lights, taking more juice from the battery. If you remove the alternator and bring it to any advance auto or autozone, they can test it for you for free, to tell if it needs replacing or not. Also check the fusable link located in the fuse compartment under the hood, and make sure that's good.
Hope this helps!
