Have you tested your alternator? That could have been the demise of the battery in the first place.

SOURCE: car wont start

I noticed you replace the crankshaft sensor, but not the CAMshaft sensor.
The Ignition module takes the input of both sensors to tell the coil when to energize.
This sensor should come up as an error code when you attach a obd reader.
Even if your light is not on - there may be a code. If it is not your vehicle originally, some people pull the bulb!

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Stratus ? Camshaft Position Sensor causing problems (I

I had the same problem with my '05 Stratus SXT 2.4 DOHC. I've replaced the cam pos sensor and it seems to be running fine right now. On the Dodge forums a lot of the guys say that you need to replace the crank pos sensor too. I've bought one of those just in case it comes back again. Hope this helps.

Ford F650 6.0 Nightmare!! Won't start, error code 221 Internal sensor voltage supply. fault mode Id:4 voltage below normal or shorted out! Help

Modern electrical issues can only be resolved only after all connections have been determined as clean, dry, and tight. Corrosion can cause voltage drops that will affect sensitive sensors and relays, that will prevent your vehicle from starting. Loose connections and especially an entire fuse box being loose will definitely be part of the problem. Repairs to this need to be done to continue diagnosis.

2005 chevy trailblazer was jump started and now all interior electricals from lights to windows to door locks are gone. Any ideas beyond fuses as I checked all of those mini fuses

This is a fairly common problem on Trailblazers. What happens most often is, when jump started, instead of connecting the jumper cables to the battery, they get connected to the studs on the main fuse box under the hood. When this happens, it blows the megafuse in the fuse box.
The megafuse feeds electrical current to most of the circuits in the rear fuse box. If that megafuse is blown, it will have to be replaced, and this should fix your problem. Here is a picture I found on the 'net of the megafuse:

Hope this helps!!

'93 4 cyl accord periodically won't start

that sure sounds like a voltage drop through the battery cables. could be a drop to the fuse box causing low voltage to engine sensors. i dont see the cam sensor causing your problem if jumper cables fix it. you need a multimeter with a min/max setting connected to both ends of one of the cables while cranking. anything over a half volt from one end to the other is too much and it would need replaced. do this on both pos. and neg. cable,including cable to fuse box. check batt. voltage while cranking. these fuel injected engines are very sensitive to voltage and if its too low to certain sensors it wont start. cam sensor controlls fuel injector timing via ecm, crank sensor controlls spark. it would be more helpful to me to know weather it is spark or fuel you aren't getting while cranking. hope i helped you and not caused you more questions. keep me up to date. dustang
