C230 2005 will not start

If it fails to turn over then check on battery condition and on battery connections (do full beam headlights stay consistently bright for ten minutes). If Ok then check on wiring to and from starter motor and on condition of starter motor brushes. If turning over can you hear the fuel pump running; whirring sound when key at position prior to 'start'. If no fuel pump check on fuse for pump relay, check on relay, check on voltage at pump. If pump supplied with voltage but not running give it knock to see if you can get some kind of response from it. If completely dead replace pump and filter assembly.

Engine doesn't run. Suspect fuel issue. 2005 Grand Caravan.

No codes, but it was communicating? If no codes, it could be fuel pump. Have the fuel pressure checked. Do you hear it turn on for a couple of seconds, with key in on, not start? It should turn on briefly to pressurize the fuel lines and system. With key on, pressure should be pretty high, usually about 50 psi for MPFI.

98 Chevy Tahoe runs great, but from time to time will not turn over, I leave it for the day and it starts fine. Have changed fuel pump, distributor and cap, starter, battery, plugs and wires. No idea why...

When this happens check for power on the s terminal At the starter while someone holds the key in the crank position. I suspect a faulty ignition switch.

A couple of things can be the cause. You could have an issue with your battery connection, or your ignition switch is dead. Ignition switch issues tend to kill all the power to the car. They can go without warning. It's located on the driver's side on the steering column.

Car wont start i can hear the fuel pump and it has fuel No problems untill now When i turn the start key i can hear the fuel pump cycle motor turns over fine good battery

Is it clicking or is the engine actually turning over?

The starter solenoid contacts can become worn and need replaced. It's built onto the starter.

You need to check for spark at a plug wire... I have read the coil packs can become brittle and crack easily.

My 1995 grand jeep cherokee won't start but It turns over an a battery jump didn't work. I believe I'ts an electical problem, maybe related to the alarm because the starter, engine and battery seem fine..?...

Alarms usually won't allow the engine to crank. If it is the alarm, arming then disarming it usually gets them to start. However, you probably aren't that lucky. Probably the most common problem for Cherokees with ignition issues is a crank sensor or a fuel pump. Listen to hear if the fuel pump runs when you turn the key to the run position (it will only run for 2 seconds, so have someone else turn the key while you listen at the gas filler neck)

Starter/Fuel Pump fuse, or the Relay Fuse blow

the fuel pump comes on when you turn the key on the starter comes on when you turn all the way to start so i would think the short is in the fuel pump if it blows by just turning the key on

'92 BMW 318 doesn't start

Need more info....Does the engine turn over? Or do you get absolutely no response? Did the car operate correctly and then all of a sudden not work? Or was the starting problem getting worse and worse? If you get no response, I would 'hot wire' the starter to make sure it works. Run a positive and negative wire directly from the battery to the starter. If it turns over, you got a wiring problem, either the starter wires or the battery connections. If the starter turns over and it won't start - you have to find out if it is a fuel problem or an electrical problem. You can get a tester from any auto parts store to check if the spark plugs are firing. Just a couple of bucks. If there is no spark, you got an electrical problem. If the plugs are firing, you have a fuel problem. Disconnect the fuel line right after the fuel regulator. Turn the car over to see if fuel is coming out. BE CAREFUL. Let it squirt into some kind of container - don't let it shoot all over the place. If you aren't getting fuel, you may need a fuel pump. If you are getting fuel - do a compression test. You can get a compression tester pretty cheap, or some places will loan or rent you one. It doesn't really matter too much what the readings are - but they should all be about the same. If one cylinder is lower than the others, you may have have a cracked head, broken valve - you won't know until you get the head off. Even if the pressures are the same - if this problem was creeping up on you, in other words it got harder and harder to start - it could be worn out rings. How many miles on the car? I could be rings if you have very high mileage on it - like 150000 miles.
