Do you hear the starter turning the engine over?
If so does it sound like it is turning over faster than normal?
Have you checked the timing belt?
Have you checked for fuel pressure?
Have you checked for spark?

If you can not hear the starting turning the engine over....
1. have you checked your oil lately?
2. have you tried turning the engine over by hand?
3. Have you checked to see if there is power to the starter?

AC and Cooling Fans Not Working


Try installing a jumper across the N/O terminal at the relay socket. Temp sensor in the radiator or in the thermostat housing supplies the signal for the relay the other relay signal is supplied by A/C in on position. both fans will run continuous with A/C on. One fan runs intermittent relative to water temp. Be careful not to blow a head gasket. If you leave the jumpers in place, the fans will stop when the ignition is turned off, save the engine until you isolate the relay signal problem. then simply remove jumpers and reinstall the relays

Today i was drivng my 2007 sebring made two stops and on the second stop it wouldn't start. Everything else works like the lights, the radio, the ac everything it just won't say nothing.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

2000 dodge grand caravan 3.8L. the a/c stopped cooling, the next day the serpentine belt broke so I replaced it. It wouldn't start so I had alternator tested, it was bad, replaced it, still...


sounds to me like a siezed up ac unit.. it would not spin while all other pulleys spin... thus causing the broken belt.. hope that helps you

Why does my motor ping when under load i changed knock senser


Generally a Pinging noise isn't due to a knock sensor. It sounds like you may have Detonation issues.

I'd really check your spark plugs to make sure they are not fouled as well as running some higher octane gas to see if it helps.

basically, your getting combustion earlier then you're supposed to. This could be to various reasons.

Check in this order, Spark, Timing.

Check to make sure the spark plugs are all sparking and clean / properly gaped. Pull one coil/wire at a time off the plug to see if the pinging stop (pull a wire, start the car. Turn off car, re-attach wire, move onto next plug.) If it stops on a specific cylinder that means you're having detonation issues on that cylinder. If it never stops, then it sounds as though it could be timing related or have a valve train issue.

We'll start here and move on. Let me know what comes of this!

Infinit g35 radio and AC does not work, already replaced the fuse. help


a circuit board behind the radio is to blame.

6disc changer goes out first then bad signals are sent thru circuit board. components that help control radio n AC burn out eventually, causing the problem you have.

in my car (2003 G35 sedan) i heard a popping sound from radio while driving. my 6disc changer had not been working for a while now and i didnt care or know about this problem until it went further damaging. i had an ipod. well after pop, radio n AC buttons n lights stop working. AC turns on full blast and cannot be turned off. radio only controlled from steering wheel.

you have to ship your radio or drive your G35 to a factory car stereo repair shop. they are hard to come by so thats why you usually have to ship the piece out.
