SOURCE: ford contour wont start battery charged lights working

If headlight do not come on, leave them on and start check ground and power.
If headlights do come on then locate the starter and fine something to tape on it, not too hard,
but before u can do this have someone set inside the car with the key turn in the start position...

SOURCE: 98 bmw 740i wont start

Battery is in trunk compartment. Must be positioned exactly and locked down. Not easy to do and keep in position unless using BMW battery. There is a slight size difference (BMW wants to sell their batteries - at inflated price.) Save yourself the headaches and get BMW battery. In the meantime, just move your battery position a little bit until trunk light comes on. Car will start if trunk light is on - unless the problem is really something else. Hope this helps. Let me know.

SOURCE: my 2003 chevy malibu cranks but wont start. battery is good and altenator is good

To clarify - - if the engine cranks the battery and starter are ok.
The alternator does not come into play until the engine is running.
If it cranks but won't start, you have to figure out if you are missing fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed.
A mechanic would check that and if there are any trouble codes stored in the computer.

SOURCE: my 1997 ford expedition is not charging I have change alternator,new batterrywhat could be the problem

If you know for a fact the alternator is good, the problem would be the computer is not energizing the alternator, or the power from the alternator is not getting to the battery.
I would check the fuseable links first to see if any have open circuits.

Flickering all dash lights, lights interior, exterior and radio snaps off when this starts.


#1 Check your ground or corrosion at battery terminals if OK try adding an additional ground strap or cable to body of vehicle make sure you clean surface that means remove paint where cable is grounded.

#2 If you have an aftermarket radio or sound system or anything aftermarket that is not original check that also.

Very important if terminals are not corroded splice both batt cables about 1" back and inspect under insulator for corrosion if there is any replace batt cables

Turn key, no start, dash dead, but intermittent symptons


First I would look for voltage drop of both end of battery terminal.not a look or seem tight . you have to do it (voltage drop) and terminal at alternator.
now does alternator charging. take voltage of battery
if the problem occur have voltage of battery taken
like I read your problem it looks like wiring terminal ground and positive
the noise you hear is probably low voltage to a relay and the dropping voltage make the relay switch inside relay cycling noise click or buzz
