What would cause the power to kick out when engaging the glo plug after 3 to 5 seconds turning the key to preheat position.Let it sit for 10 seconds and the power will kick back in.

When you turn the key to preheat it will kick in like it is suppose to and after 3 to 5 seconds it like you turn a breaker off after 5 to 10 seconds it kicks back in like it resets its self.replaced the switch but it made no differance.

Security system. 2002 Camaro has been sitting without a battery in it. New batterry starter will not engage. Separate fob. The factory fob seems to work fine. Thanks, Dwight


If it has sit for a long while, I might put a couple drops of oil in each cylinder, turn the crank by hand. You could jump the starter relay to get the starter motor to crank a little. If you try something like that, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and functional parking brake is set.
Your security system has the pellet in the key? You could try a relearn procedure?
Turn the ignition switch to start, then release to the on position
The security lamp should be on
After 10 minutes the lamp will turn off
Repeat the 10 minute sequence 2 more times, with 5 seconds between them
Turn ignition switch off. Hopefully on the next start attempt it will start?
Sometimes after a vehicle sits for a long time, little gremlins get to chewing on the wires, cause all kinds of problems. Any applicable trouble codes?

What cause my 1999 land rover to turn over but wont start?


Sounds to me like the fuel pump. Located inside the fuel tank it can be difficult to verify without a second person or an extremely quiet workspace. First eliminate the basics. Verify that fuel is or isn't reaching the engine. Do this by locating the Schrader valve on the top of the engine. Battery side, aluminum tube on top of engine, the fuel injection pressure release valve looks exactly like air fill valve on your tire. Protect eyes, place a rag underneath the valve to catch any expelled fuel. With a small nail or valve tool press the needle to relaese pressure. If nothing shoots out or no more than a dribble is expelled, this is consistent with bad pump. Next check for the sound of pump running. This is where a second person come in. Have your helper sit in the drivers seat with the keys. Then move to the passenger side rear, fold up right side of rear seat exposing the carpet underneath. When in position, with all quiet, have helper turn key to second position doing so with driver door closed to eliminatebells and whistles. When the key arrives at position 2 this engages the fuel pump relay and fuel pump for 3-5 seconds. When the pump relay ceases to send power to pump after 3-5 seconds you will hhear one last beep from the message center. Repeat steps to confirm that pump is operating or not. You will hear the pump humming from the floorboards for the 3 second relay interval. If you hear nothing coming from the tank, which is directly under right rear passenger seat this would be the second confirmation of a failed pump. Assuming you have ample gas in the tank to prime pump (in the event it had run dry) five gallons, check your inertia cutoff switch for proper operaation and that it is not tripped. This switch is behind the right hand kick panel under glove box at right of front passengers feet. Remove panel and be. Sure that the red rubber switch is depressed. If this is pushed all the way down then the switch is engaged. Making this third confirmation symptom of bad pump.
The pump through the dealer is expensive, but if you are on a budget and have some mechanic skills, the $1500 pump can be repaired by simply replacing the $160 electric motor.
Feel free to repost additional info or questions. I will do my best to answer them. Good luck!

Have 2005 nissan altima I replaced the starter positive battery terminal and fuse box on back of positive battery terminal. When I turn the key the engine barely turns over and will not start. What could...


Pull one spark plug at a time and check for oil along with turning key and seeing if it kicks harder with one sparkplug out at a time. If no results, try with spark plugs out and see if it kicks harder. Be sure to have a battery charger or jumper cables hooked up while doing all this to insure equal battery amps along testing each one. Dont turn key more than a few second each time. If it starts or kicks up harder with one spark plug out and you find fluid, blown head gasket, if it kicks harder only once all spark plugs are out, could still be nlown head gasket, but good chance timing is either off, or broken timing chain/gear/belt is the issue.

Do it three times in a row.

1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.

Programing a key fob


1. Perform a security system relearn.
2. Let the vehicle sit for more than 10 minutes with the key off.
3. Attempt to start the engine, leave the key in the run position monitoring the security system indicator.
4. After 10 minutes, the security indicator will change state.
5. Turn the key off and wait 10 seconds.
6. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
7. After the second 10 minute timer has expired, turn the key off for 10 seconds.
8. Attempt to start the engine. If the engine stalls, wait another 10 minutes with the key on.
9. After the 3rd 10 minute timer has expired, shut the key off for 10 seconds.
10. The security system will relearn on the 4th starting attempt and the engine should start and run.
If this doesnt work, you may have a failure in your system. If the security light is on, and the reprogram doesnt work, you might want to look into bypassing that antitheft system.
