A common problem is the Inertia sensor. This is a safety device. It is suppose to kill the power to the fuel pump in event of an accident. It has a reset button on it. Do a Web search for location and looks of part.

Go to website lincolnvscadilac.com and try a search there. Do the lights dim when you attempt to start? Does it crank over with no start? Fuel pumps are a problem and check the fuse (40) amp for fuel pump in the trunk. Can you hear the fuel pump run when you turn key to on (not start)? I switched 7 fuses for the fuel pump before finally changing the thing.

you need to find the starter solenoid and jump the two largest posrs with booster cables .if it canks repace the starter.if all your hearing now is a clicking sound you need to jump power to the solenoids start wire,a push on wire on the smaller post of the solenoid ,if it cranks replace the solenoid.if neither makes it crank,repair the grounrd cable or remove the starter and remove the rust from the nose cone and the mounting point.

Would an alternator make your car will not start


If your battery is fully charged, the car can start and run from the battery with no alternator at all. It might run 1/2 hr with no alternator.

A good test for the alternator is to start the car and then unhook one of the battery terminals. If the alternator is good, the car will keep on running without the battery. If the car turns off hen you disconnect a terminal, then the alternator isn't working.

But a bad alternator won't stop your car from starting...it will just not keep your battery charged or keep the motor running once the battery gets less than 12V

Well if jumping the car starts it but not on its own it is probably one of two things either the battery is not good or the alternator is not charging the battery I would take the car to (of course after jump starting) an auto parts store and do a load test on the battery. they should have the equipment to check without removing the battery. if battery is good try the alternator again they should have equipment to check while still in the car.

Sounds like a bad battery,, it can read 12 volts but not have enough current to run the car,, a good test is to leave the lights on for 10-15 minutes, then try to start the car, most batteries will be able to start the car if they are good. and you said you can jump the car, and keep it running so the alternator appears good

Will not start battery and alternator is good will only start if jumped and shuts off while running after car is jumped started.


Make SURE battery and alternator are good because battery starts the car but car runs on alternator power once its started. If alternator is not putting out the power needed, car will die once the battery power is dead or removed.

Car won't start. The battery and alternator are


If you can jump and start the car then the starter is good.

I had a similar situation where the battery tester showed 13V and green/good LED but I could not start my car. After many tests, I found out that the battery had good Voltage (13V) but not enough Amperage to crank the starter.
I replaced the battery and the car started like a champ!.

- clue to see if you need to replace the battery is if you have used it for
about 3 years or more.
- Dead battery happens a lot more often than bad alternator.
