If it was a short you would blow a fuse. If it was a bad ground the lights wouldn't work. I think your problem is in the switch itself. You may need to have it fixed or replaced. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Engine won t shut off


I would check your wires in the dashboard the wire that sends a signal to shut off the engine may be sparking or cut if you do not know which wire maybe hire a mechanic or look it up.

Thanks,

Charge up the battery (or have it charged) and then seek out a local parts store that does free charging system testing like Autozone or O'reilly auto parts, have them test the system, but off hand you have an Alternator problem or a voltage regulator issue. Get the proper diagnosis done before you replace any parts.

1996 chevrolet cavalier would not start but started with a boost and ran fine till i shut it off then would not start again unless i boosted it but the problem worsened it started shutting down on the road...


you surely need a new battery. a car may crank but will not start due to low battery voltage. My suspect is that the battery may have enough ampere to crank the motor but the voltage is too low to run the electronic system. if you have a meter, check the voltage as you crank the car. This is a possiblility but it is a rare occurence.

First you will have to get a boost. Something is obviously draining the battery and you will have to find out what it is. The battery may be bad, (7 years old) or it might not be charging,( alternater) or something is draining it when it's shut off, and that could be anything from a light, to the starter.

I just bought 2000 buick lesabre new battery woke up the next day it would not start.


could be that you left something on and battery drained itself.have you tryed boosting it off? thats where i would start. when you put the booster cables on,leave the car running that you're getting the boost from. let it run 10minutes and then try starting your car.when it starts let it run 15minutes before you shut it off or attempt to drive it.that will allow time for your battery charge up.after that you can shut it off if you choose to. when you do turn the car off,look for a light that might have been left on,or a tail light staying on,or a brake light thats staaying on.the best way to look for a light is in the dark.suggest that you try this,then if it won't start the next day,may have bought a bad battery.suggest that you have it checked if a no start again.good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.com

There is a switch above the break peddle that is adjustable for the break lights. This is running your battery down that is why the gauges are jumping. Change the battery.. If it is 5 years old draining it dead will kill the cells. Hope this helps.

Check your battery terminal's, check woltage when engine is off on your battery, check voltage when running. Could be alternator, battery ior something wrong with charging system.

test your alternator voltage it should be at least 13.25 volts. sounds like its not putting voltage back into your battery. if all is well have your battery load tested at parts store.
