Ac only works when the engine is running. Every thing else is pointing towards a flat battery or loose battery clamps.

Sounds like either the battery is bad, connections may be bad or one of the main fuses blown. Would help to know the year, make and model.
Check all connections, all fuses, and see if anything is unhooked or corroded.

I don't know which it is


Your info is limited but when you say the "alternator" tries to turn I can only assume the engine is cranking. If it is and not starting check the security light on the instrument cluster.. If its blinking put the key to acc and leave it for 10 min or until the light stops blinking. Turn the key off then start it. This is a common passlock issue.

HELP! My 2000 plymouth neon wont crank and no mechanic i bring it to can figure it out!!


If the headlights and dashboard lights are working but the vehicle still does not start, the ignition switch is most likely the problem. or a bad wire from switch. If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement. check the wires to starter and see if you have power when car is switched on, do this first! good-day! if it cranks but does not start. check to see if spark and fuel, and check all fuses also.

Car wont start


You need to know if the fuel pump is working.TURN KEY ON,BUT DON,T CRANK engine, Listen for the pump to kick on(should hear it.)IF the check engine light is on,have it scanned. A bad crank or cam sensor could prevent starting.IT could be anything from bad plugs,wires,out of gas, or bad sensors.

My 1998 Hyundai Elantra will not start after running out of gas.When I put gas in it ,it would crank but it took a long time to start. I drove it 3 miles and it shut off. I cranked it and cranked it,but it...


Don't let the car run out of gas. Fill the tank and run until the tank is half empty. Again fill the tank.
By driving until you run out of gas, you are letting sediments/dirt collected in the bottom of the tank to enter the engine. Rather they will block the fuel filter. Then gas will not reach the engine.
Clean the gas filter and your car will run fine.
The same advice again. Don't drive until the tank becomes empty.

I have a Mercedes 2003 C230. Checked my Fuel line, Fire to Ignition, and Change Camshaft Position Sensors. Car Cranks but still does not start. What else should I look at?


Turn the key and listen for a hum (keep doors closed but a window down and radio off). Don't turn the key all the way to try to crank it, just the turn to get all the lights in the dash on. If you hear a slight hum or buzz that last a second or two that is your fuel pump. If you don't hear it, check your fuse for the fuel pump, if that is not blown, your fuel pump may have gone out.

Dash lights are not working 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK


most probable cause could be a faulty ignition switch. Does the lights on the dash come on when you turn the key to the on position ? Do they turn off when you turn the car to the start and are about to crank the engine ? If that does not happen you will have to replace the Ignition switch. They don't have a fuse for the dash lights.

Car wont crank. battery seems to be fine cause the lights and stereo is strong.


hi if the lights are working and don,t go dim when you try to turn it over it suggusts the battery should have enough to start it so the problem lies either faulty starter [test by making a make shift wire from the live terminal on your battery to the starter small wired terminal remove the wire first] this should operate the starter if so you need to find the starter relay and listen to see if it clicks when you turn the starter key it should if it does nt check the ignition switch by lowering the cowel to gain access to the switchs wiring find the wire that goes live only when the key is in the start position if thats there then the switch is ok obviousley if none as the things mentioned don,t do as stated they are faulty a bad ground connection on the engine or the battery will cause the same problem just clean them up yates210456
