SOURCE: 98 celica battery went dead replaced now it want crank

Try this: Unhook the battery. Reconnect the battery. When the horn starts to beep, cycle the ignition key in the ignition on-off 5 times. This resets the alarm; the cycling of the key. Please advise me if this works for you.

2000 isuzu trooper no start with slow crank loose 4 volts at starter


automatic or stick>?
no engine size stated. gas or diesel.
slow crank, 250 -300 rpm is normal.
so did you AAA tow truck style , jumper cable crank that car off a running donor car yet>?
just that act (test) speaks volume for cause.

what does loose 4v mean...??
10-11v is normal voltage at starter. cranked.
4 v at the solenoid can not even begin to close it,
or did you mean the 12vdc is 4v lower that 12vd. which is 8v.
perplexing. (3 cheers 1st poster here with voltmeter, im am truly shocked,(no pun) honest reply.......!!

A fuses blown. (DEAD CRANKS)
DEAD BATTERY
BATTERY BAD
bATTERY JUST DISCHARGEd.
wrong sized battery in car, (tiny)
LAST DRIVE? the charge system died, and now battery is weak. fix charging system.
left head lights on, cure , charge battery.

battery terminals rusty !( yes they have 4 ends they can rust or get loose) 500 amps here so must be clean and tight.(bat terms)

jumper cables jump starts car ok?, yes, then battery dead.
battery bad, battery only discharged ?
next:
jumper cables don't crank fast, then hot wire the starter. (big wire to tiny)
more testing....
with known good charged battery (12.6vdc rested)
i hot wire the starter solenoid.
i monitor the voltage at starter actual.
with a volt meter.
most cars do 11v, in warm summer.
if much less, say below 10v the starter will be slow. so i monitor battery terminals volts.
and if ok, there, the cables are bad. (voltage drop on cables is that, yes, cables do fail.)
or the starter is partially shorted. or engine seizing....hand turn engine crankpulley and feel it.? feel normal, ? or cant move it...?

if i suspect a bad starter i use my ammeter.
the starter current will be about 200 amps .
no engine stated so.....i guess....
if it goes to like 600+, the starter is shorted.
I have an amp clamp amp meter, that allows me to see and find the hard cases...

Battery went flat, I charged battery, and now it won't start, fire.


Here are trouble shooting tips.
Most common answers you will hear, are it's the battery old or you may just need to check and clean the terminals for a good connection. Can take battery to local car parts place and have them check it.
Alternator - but if you have headlights working and they are not real dim its probably not.
Starter - but if the engine is cranking, prob. not.

Power surge when engaging starter


If you short the bat terminal to the ign terminal, does the engine crank? (make sure it won't roll if stick or auto) This is a piece of cake circuit. Auto has a neutral safety switch that keeps it from cranking if everything else was checked. Driver side of trans, 4 wires connector near steering column on outside of firewall.

Replaceing timming belts A, and B,


If I understand you correctly it seems like belt "b" came off. If in deed it came off it is possible that it did som damage to the crank sensor and now since the computer doest have an rpm reference the vehicle won't start. You may have to revisit the work done and make sure everything is in order. Keep in mind this is an interference engine. Meaning that misalignment of the cam and crank or a belt coming off or breaking while everything is in motion will cause internal damage to the engine. Good luck.

My Car Will Not turn Over


Sounds like you just need a jump. if that doesnt work and the battery is fully charged then you need to disconnect the wires from the battery and clean the cable hookups and the battery terminals. You can go to a auto parts store and get a terminal wire brush cleaner. Wire brush the terminals and the hookup till all the corrosion is off and then put some vasaline on the terminals and hookups to prevent corrosion later. Hook you battery back up and see if it will start.

Turns over but wont start


Briannatara:

Some questions to help in the analysis........

You say "it cranked for about 3 seconds and died as if I turned off the key" did it actually start and then die?
Have there been any clues (unusual happenings) recently that might relate to the current problem?

Is there a reason the battery went dead? was something left on? Lights, etc?

How old is the battery?

Resseting alarm lockout in 2001 Pontiac Sunfire


turning left and stalling sounds like your power steering pressure switch is bad.as for other problem try unlocking drivers door using the key this should reset the factory alarm. also make sure you didn't miss a wire when reconnecting bat. look for 12gauge red wire near bat. this goes to computer if not connected car will crank but not start.
