Question about 1990 Mazda MX-6

Automatic Car not starting - turning over

Ok so, we've an automatic car which wont start. It worked perfect 12 hours prior. Not a flat battery as lights etc all work and it doesn't make that ticking noise that would signal a flat battery - it makes no noise.

We thought a problem with the imobilior - but the red imobiliser light switches off when engaged.

Maybe a problem with the gear box - the car doesn't realise its in park and so wont turn over? But the car is on a slight hill and hasn't rolled away which makes me think it is actually in park. No idea what to do next any suggestions??

Why wont car start after charging battery its an au falcon


Check you battery connections. If they seem ok then get a volt meter and check voltage at the starter solinoid. If it is battery voltage then the small wire at the solinoid have a helper turn the key to start and you should have 9 to 12 volts. If this checks ok then you should have the starter checked. If no voltage the if is a automatic then check the nuteral safty switch. or ingnition switch.

Car will not start


A simple jump start with battery cables should get the car started and recharge the battery. If you don't like dealing with battery cables, there are products that attach from inside the car using the cigarette lighter to jump start the car that work very well.

My 307 peugeot wont start no power no lights noyhing was runnig fine all day untill i tried it this morning and nothing


May be the battery of your car is got completely drained. sometimes by mistake any of the car lights or ac or any battery consuming accessory remains on.And due to this battery gets completely drained and due to no voltage in battery the car does not start.In some cases the car does not gets turned off.If there is a problem in ignition switch circuit and this also drains the battery.Get the car battery voltage checked.It should be 12 volt if the battery is properly charged.This will let you know what is the problem .Also check the battery connections if its got loose then this can happen.------------- Thanks.

2007 Vue hybrid. 12-volt battery dead? No electric key opening, lights, starting, etc. Can I try to trickle charge it? We;ve been away a week, but it has been sitting in a garage above 50 degrees.


If the battery is completely dead a trickle charge won't do much. These are designed to keep a good battery good. You need a regular battery charger set to 10 amps for a couple hours then 2 amps overnight. Be aware that sometimes if your battery has been completely killed it may not work for long, that is your car will start but within a few days or hours it will leave you stranded. You'll know because it will drag when you try to start it. Sometimes you get lucky and it works great for years.

Next time do use a trickle charger! Also if the charge you use is automatic then you can leave it hooked up in 2 amp mode when you are gone. Good luck!

Car wont start


try and listen where the fizzing sound is coming from. go to the fuse box where the relays are.put your hand on the relays when the key is turned and identify the one making the noise. sounds like the start relay is faulty. needs changing. hope this helps.

My bug wont start


Depends on if the vehicle is a automatic transmission or a Stick shift. If it is an automatic could be the neutral safety switch, if it is a stick shift could be the safety switch at the clutch pedal. Hope this helps.
