SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,

Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

SOURCE: clicking in fuse box under hood

That test with the Hydrometer of battery specific gravity will indicate the state of charge, the problem is this, the battery posts that connect to the cells inside the newer sealed batteries burn through, so although the battery is charged there is no way to deliver the power to the car, that is why a load test is the only true test of battery performance. Most auto parts stores do this test for free.

SOURCE: My 2004 F250 won't start. The battery is good, all gauges work etc... When you turn the key the starter won't even click

more then likely its a bad starter. or the cable to starter.

SOURCE: When cranking turns over good but won't start

Check for spark. If you have spark, you could have a fuel delivery issue.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Taurus, V6 3.0 won't start. Attempted to start, but stop mid start. No clicking, just slience. What else?

Just to the left of the battery is the main fuse junction box and below that under the manifold is the starter with the solenoid on top with the positive cable going to the starter check for a loose connection, and the battery ground sould be right there nearby the starter grounded to the block check it also. You could have a bad cable although it may look okay under the insulator the copper cable may be damaged test with a volt meter while moving the pos and neg cables at both ends.

Ok my 1983 camaro has a v6 in it and every time I want to start it I have to hook it up to a portable battery charger and start it up like that but now it won't even start up. Even when the battery is...


Sounds as though the battery is no good,
unless you know otherwise & also had it tested
Charging a battery doesn't address it's internal
condition
You have battery cables that corrode inside & can be
voltage drop tested
You have the starter & solenoid,ignition sw & such, to name
a few,lots of possible causes & things to check

Won't start


How about corroded battery cables (internal)

Fusible Link wiring corroded & open circuit,does
everything electrical work except the starting circuit?

Turn key & have power to starter solenoid ?
Neutral Switch !
Ignition Switch !

Tough to guess without wiring diagrams,
to see where to start testing

Can't fix what you don't know you have

Jiggle the wire connectors going in to the computer under the hood -- first check battery cables/terminal connections at battery -- beleive it or not, connection could SEEM good because you get crank & lights, but if it's faulty, loose, engine won't start - computer requires good solid voltage flow.. next check a fusible link very close to the battery off of the positive cable. check fusible link carefully. this could cause your problem for sure.

2005 sedona won't start all of a sudden. Doesn't make a sound except for a tiny whirring sound like the feul injectors. Replaced starter...still won't start. checked all fuses...they are good....


you could just have dead cell in the battery which isn't getting enough amps to the starter,, have the battery LOAD checked,, that will tell you if the battery is actually good, just because it registers 12 volts isn't necessarily an indication that the required amps are present.

In the morning it wont start but cranks up with no problem in the after noon starter is less than a year old & battery is 4 months old please help me figure out what the problem is


Very weird - I had an older VW bug that was like that, but it was usually during the winter - so unless you're in Alaska right now, I don't see cold being a factor. Is there a possibility of any condensation/moisture settling on anything (electrical connections mainly) under the hood overnight (maybe it evaporates after the car sets in the sun for a few hours)? When you say it won't start - is it getting any juice at all or just clicking/dragging like a dead battery or starter? Or do you mean it just won't fire up - like maybe it's flooded or has an ignition issue?
Check for a good/clean connection on your battery terminals.Make sure it's on good & tight, then try to start the car - if that's not it. Get a jump, then go to Auto Zone, O'Reilley's, etc and get the battery & the starter checked. I'm betting it's either a poor connection, bad battery or your starter is going out (or possibly the starter relay switch). Also consider getting the alternator checked. If it's going out, then it's causing the car to run more off the battery vs. charging the battery up while you drive. Sometimes when one of the three (battery, starter, alternator) is going out - it can cause all three to act up or also eventually go out. And it's frustrating, because any one of them can test test ok right up until the minute it just dies. Sometimes (if you can afford it) it's better to just replace all 3 at the same time - at least then you know they should all be good. Start with your connections - that's the easy fix.
If you have juice, but the car just keep turning over without firing up - consider a good tune up or get your injectors cleaned up. To prevent gunk from building up in your fuel system, consider using a fuel additive from time to time. I use B-12 Chem-tool or Marvel's Mystery Oil. You might also get a diagnostic run on it & see if any codes pop up - maybe a chip freaking out somewhere. Good Luck.

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.
