SOURCE: 1994 mazda protege 1.8 l auto trans won't start

It could be a faulty Engine Coolant Temperature sensor. It sounds like when it is cold, your computer is interpreting your signal from the ECT (or lack therof) as being at a certain temperature and not providing the right amount of fuel in order to start the engine when it is cold. Does the check engine light blink or flash at all?

SOURCE: Battery was completely dead- so

That would probably be your alternator. The car doesnt take as much power to keep running as the lights. The lights use alot of power and if the battery is doing the alternators job it drains quickly. The battery is only designed to start the car then the alternator should take over and recharge the battery. When the alternator fails the battery will soon fail. Even though you had to jump the battery it was still new so it had a big charge. That is why you were able to drive so far. On an old battery and a jump I've seen people drive a long ways until they turn on their lights. I say 99.99% sure it's your alternator. Here is how you can test it. Get your car jump started again or charge your battery and start your car. While it is running get out and unhook the positive battery cable from the battery. If your car dies, you have found your problem(the alternator). I hope that I could be of some help. Good luck.

Sounds like the starter motor, what can happen is when the engine is cold the battery fills like there's not enough power to start it and when you jump it it will go after a while and when the engine is warm it's OK to start still , starter motor good luck colin

Will not start. Act like it wants to crank keeps getting ticking noise


Sounds like a starter or battery fault. If the battery is low, there is enough power to operate the starter solenoid but not the starter, so you get the click of the solenoid only (Charge battery or jump start). Same thing, the starter motor is not turning, but the solenoid is clicking (replace starter). Another possibility check all earth connections ie: battery to chassis, chassis to engine. if high resistance could give same symptons.

My car won't turn over. i have a new battery on it ( DOUBLE CHECKED ITS FINE) It seems as tho the starter motor is'nt getting enough power to it. It just sounds as though its struggles to turn...


Sometimes the starter motor bushes can be worn out and so will work with a high level of friction which will not power the engine to turn over. Also if the brushes or the commutator in the motor is bad it will be hard to turn.
The starter solenoid also is a suspect as if this is worn out it will be delivering lower current to the motor which will not be sufficient to turn the engine .
So please remove the starter motor and overhaul.. check the starter pinion and flywheel.

It sounds like you probably have a shorted battery cell. This will not only cause the repeated clicking that you described, but it will also rob power when jump-starting from another vehicle. There is probably enough power when jump starting to turn the starter over, but after the starter take the power that it needs, there is not enough power to operate the computer system....so I have no doubt that you probably are not getting any fuel. The computer has to tell the fuel pump to run. If there is no power for the computer....I think you can figure it out from here.

Replace the battery and try it again.

Accord seems to be draining power overnight. only a fast clicking sound when attempting to start. battery 6 months old.


hi, it seems you have a fault DISCHARGE OF BATTERY: make sure there is no lights left ON vehicle inside or out, if phone charger left ON the fast clicking is the starter motor solinoid triing to connect to the starter motor NOT ENOUGH CURRENT TO START ENGINE, sometimes the alternator can have a slight fault, water driping on the contacts on the alternator will flatten the battery, (this is a DIRECT CONNECTION TO THE STARTER MOTOR and BATTERY). naturally the clock, radio, alarm system, all these sytem reduce the battery but this is NOT THE FAULT. charge the battery again it may be just this once. gerry

Car wont start


Does the battery have enough capacity to turn over the engine though? Even flat car batteries will still power the radio. The best way would be to jump start the car uing a set of jumper leads. If it starts you know it is the battery that needs replacing.

If it still wont turn over then it is most likely the solenoid in your starter motor. You can often tap the starter motor with a hammer and free the solenoid as a temporary fix. The starter motor is loacted at the back of the engine on the bell housing if rear wheel drive, or around the tranmission if a front wheel drive.

When i turn the key it sounds like rat a tat tat but does not start.


The fast click is a classic sound of not enough power.

Either the battery is low or dying, or the starter is wearing out and trying to pull more power than the battery can supply.

Once you get it started, jump-started, or whatever, take it to your mechanic to test the battery 1st, alternator 2nd, and if necessary, starter 3rd, in order of cost.

Engine don't start and have a clicking sound


you should check and see the batttery smart visor indicator (if applicable - see owners manual)
this may be that the battery has been drained and does not have enough power to rotate the starter. lights, dashboard, instruments light up ok as the voltage is there but the power (amperage) is low. please refer to owners manual on how to recharge your battery. bare in mind that removing the baterry from the care will reset systems (audio, alarm) and you wil need to recode them by using the codes provided with the car.
