2007 impala won't start sometimes


The most likely problem is a failed safety switch in the transmission. It will only allow the engine to turn over when in "neutral", or "Park". Next time it happens try moving the transmission selector through the full range of travel a couple of times. If this cures the problem, you may need new switch.

2008 sl awd Nissan Rogue, won't start Battery seems to have power making a clicking sound may be starter, having hard time finding starter location.


Know this problem was posted several years ago, but having same issue with my 2008 Nissan Rogue. We've tried everything short of having the battery replaced, (including charging it), and nada. So, tomorrow morning, that'll be our next move. Sucks, but best thing to die. Much rather than than an alternator, starter or solenoid.

Sounds like battery or battery cable problems to me.
If the battery is bad, you cannot trust ANYTHING the computer is telling you. They tend to set all kinds of codes when the battery has a shorted cell. (including fuel pump circuit and transmission system codes) They get "delirious" from malnutrition. You need to have your charging/starting system thoroughly tested.

The car sat up awhile. The battery died. We replaced the battery but the car still won't start. Everything comes on. The starter was tested and it was fine. What is the problem?


THERE ARE MANY POSSIBLE CONDITIONS THAT COULD PREVENT YOURCAR FROM STARTING. 1. NUTERAL SAFETY SWITCH IF THE CAR HAS AN AUTOMATICTRANSMISSION. 2. CLUTCH POSITION SWITCH IF THE CAR HAS A MANUAL TRANSMISSION.3. BRAKE PEDAL SWITCH. MANY NEWER VEHICLES HAVE A SWITCH ON THE BRAKE PEDAL ANDIF THE PEDAL IS NOT DEPRESSED WHILE TRYING TO START THE CAR, THE CAR WON'TSTART. ANOTHER POSSIBLILITY IS THE SECURITY SYSTEM. DOES THE CAR HAVE ASECURITY CHIP IN THE KEY? THESE ARE SOME OF THE MOST COMMON REASONS THAT A CARWON'T START FOR NO APPARENT REASON. HOPE THIS HELPS.

Could be the battery is dead or dieing. When batteries start to go they will cause the security to act up. Plus other things

I don't know what is wrong with my car the belt just recently broke and we had to replace it but before we did that the battery died when we were driving and we killed the battery trying to get the car...


sounds like it may be a bad alternator. jump start the car and if it gets going disconnect the negative battery cable and if it dies you have a bad alternator. It may die as soon as you unplug the jump start cables.

I have a 2002 ford focus. This morning it made a clicking sound and would not start. About 20 minutes later it started, I turned it back off and it started again. What could the problem be??? I am afraid...


Your battery is dying. It is also possible that its the alternator but if the battery is original it is almost certainly the battery and it will likely do it again until the battery is replaced. The clicking sound you heard is the starter solenoid trying to start the car (but failing). The reason it started later is because the internal temperature of the battery had risen a enough to allow the solenoid to "pull in" and start the car. Any autoparts store can test the battery/alternater for free and confirm which is the problem.
