You have two issues that are non related. Secondly, don't replace parts without having them bench tested first to determine whether they are bad. I would start by taking the battery to your local parts store and have it charged and bench tested. That is most likely where your problem is. After getting a new battery or charging your old one try starting the car. If it starts, then while running disconnect your negative battery terminal. If the car continues running your alternator is working. If not take your replacement part back to where you bought it because its defective. Not uncommon with re-manufacured parts from China and Taiwan. After getting the car running drive it back to your local shop concerning the check engine light. This is an emmission related problem that has nothing to do with why your car won't start. Because it was manufactured prior to 1996 it requires much more expensive equipment than the standard OBD found at parts stores.to diagnose it. Hope this helps! Karl

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

Double check all connections are clean & tight. You need to get a voltmeter and have the voltage tested at battery with engine off & running. Drive it to the Napa shop you bought the alternator from if necessary, they should perform test free of charge, as the possibility of a faulty one is not out of the question, provided all is connected properly. Did you check that a main fuse for alternator wasn't blown in Uunderhood power distribution box?

When you disconnect a spark plug wire, do you get spark when you crank the engine over?
If so,
When you turn the key to the "run" position (do not crank) do you here the fuel pump run for 2 - 3 seconds?
Let me know.
Regards,

you need to replace the Park Neutral Safety Sensor on the bottom of the Transmission. Should only be a $125.00 part. Your battery and starter are fine. Replace it and iy will be fixed.

My 1996 mercedez e320 only starts when I JumpStart


Connect a voltmeter across the battery terminals. While engine off, if the voltage is below 12V it means your battery is either dead or discharged. Once you've jump-started your car, check the battery voltage again. If it's still low (like below 13.5V) it may mean you have a problem with your alternator.
Let me know the voltages and we'll think what to do next.

My 95 maxima wouldn't start one day I started by


My best guess without being able to see the car is that the battery hard wiring is faulty.

You need to check both the condition, routing and security of the battery negative and positive leads.
You also need to check the security and condition of any additional earth leads which connect the engine to the chassis/body.

First make sure the battery is fully charged and do a "load test" to make sure it is still good. then check the alternator and charging system to make sure it's working. My VW does this when it's not charging properly. When the battery gets below a certain voltage the car will automatically shut down everything electrical to keep power for the engine and the light doesn't always come on. It's usually a boken wire. Hope this helps.

When the alternator doesn't supply current, the battery light on the dash would light up. (assuming the battery lightbulb is working) Next would be to doubt the voltage regulator not doing a proper job, but usually its either dead or working.

Ghost consumers can be tracked when the engine is off and removing / attaching the battery lead causes quite a bit of spark. Measure the Amps with a multimeter when turned off. When it's in the 2 Amps and upwards region - remove one fuse group after the other to see where most of it goes. Then go through all the separate consumers in that group.

If it's a low current preferably below the 1 Amp - the battery might not be as healthy anymore as suspected.

BMW 325xi; 160k; check engine light on-->next day, wont start!


I would try to jump it to see if the starter engages and the engine runs, if it does you have a connection problem between the engine starter and the battery, if it does the same thing with cables then you will probably have to tow it in to the shop. I do not think your problem is related to cold weather, but it could very well be related to the check engine light. Exactly what the check engine light is on for I can not say with out a code, but I agree with your thinking about taking it to the shop. Hope this helps, let me know.
