92-95 honda civic ex 1.6L vtec won't start! New battery, new main relay. Still no start. As you notice the engine would crank but won't start up. Also the dash lights aren't lighting up either....

Did you get the key switch checked out ? The dash indicator lights have to be on for the engine to start. So you are not getting power to the dash lights, and probably not to the computer or ignition coil either.

My Running Lights Won't Turn Off on my 1999 Toyota Corolla

Short term, pull the drl fuse, see if lights go out. Check to see if headlamps will still work with drl fuse removed? If they still work, don't worry about it.
Just between me and you, I've never cared for drl.
I can give you wiring diagrams if you want?

1994 geo tracker won't start

first have the battery load tested as it indicates that there is a dead cell
If there is a dead cell then the dead battery will consume most of the power from the jumper so there may not be enough left for the starter and the ignition
to check for a power drain , install an amp meter i the battery to ground wire and see what current draw is occurring when everything is turned off
up to 1/2 amp indicates that the ECM is using power for the memory
up to 2 amps indicate a light on--glove box, boot , interior radio etc
more indicates a problem relay

Put oil and anti-freeze into the truck,then the truck won;t start. the batteries are new, no turn over at all.

check to see if you have power at the fuse/relay box under the hood. reise the lid off the fuse/relay box and look inside for correct location of the ignition start fuse and the relay. check with a testing light for power to fuse and relay. replace faulty fuses and relay.

Fuel heating system inop.gloplug system inop.,veh. hard to start

Check fuses.Then check the glow plug relay 7.3l has relay mounted on front top of engine looks like a starter solenoid.... Switch truck ignition on to the normal preheat position, u can use insulated screwdriver or the like to touch the 2 larger bolts (of the four total) at the same time in order to make them 'connect'... hold this for about 30 seconds.. to activate glow plugs... if engine starts, sounds like u need GP relay. If truck doesnt start you may have 'under valve cover' wiring problem. DO NOT use ether to start your truck it will cause damage to your engine.
