Sounds like a probable electric problem. Many after-market remote car starters do more harm to your car than good for your convenience. Unless you can run a diagnosis, take her in to a mech. :(

SOURCE: DTS won't start after I changed battery.

Likely the PassKey system is in lockdown mode. You may need to take it to a dealer. I seem to remember something about turning the steering wheel back and forth while turning the key on some older models that had an ant-theft column... you might try that.

SOURCE: Scion xb won't start but my radio and air come on.

It looks like the start may be at the end of it's time, but before you go and replace the start, check the wires and make sure that there is not breaks or corrosion causing the start not to work. You could also give the starter a tap with a small hammer and then try to start it. It may just be on a dead spot and you may get a few more start with it so you can drive it to a garage and have them repair it or you can move it around so you can work on replacing the starter your self. Good luck and hope this helps.

Hi, My 2006 ford focus wouldn't start this morning. After starting it first time with jump leads I drove it for 20 minutes before stopping for 1 minute. When I tried to start it again I got nothing but a...


The clicking sound is the starter motor trying to engage, but does not engage because of low electrical current. Knowing that you started your motor with jump leads this morning indicates that your car's battery needs charging/replacement.
Hope this helps.

Tried to start, it goes click one time.


It sounds like a faulty alternator, the alternator uses the momentum of the running motor to charge your battery. if this is faulty than the battery will not get charged while running and go flat. use a multimeter to test the battery. or try to jump start the car, if it starts when jump started than you know its an alternator.

I would try and jump start the car -- it sounds like the battery might be bad or low on voltage ( due to the cold or age ). if jumping the car works - make sure you test to make sure the alternator is charging properly.
plus this also could be a bad soleniod or starter motor --- but try the jump start first or a new battery.

The Buick's engine does not crank when I try to start it. There is a clicking sound when I try to start it, but the engine doesn't turn over. What Do You Think?


The starter is bad or the battery is dead. If the battery is fully charged then the starter needs replaced. The solenoid inside of it is clicking

Even a new battery will go dead if the car is running on the battery instead of the alternator.
Check alternator output.
First charge the battery up.
Then check voltage with a meter from Harbor Freight ($3).
Should be 12.5.
The start engine and rev it up.
Should go over 14.
But also clean and grease battery terminals, alternator terminals, and check engine ground strap.

Won't start


Have your alternator check, sound like it's not charging your battery. When your battery is too low the car won't start even on a jump.

1997 buick skylark wont start


Does it crank and not start or not even crank. You could have a bad starter. I would test the battery first. When it won't start try to jump start it. If it jump starts it's probably the battery. If it won't jump start it's probably the starter.
