One simple thing yu can try, with the engine off, open your fuse box and pull each fuse and plug it back in several times.
I won't take but a few minutes and since your car is a few years old, you may have some poor contact that is causing the problem.
Also, if you live in an area where salt is used on the road, it would make sense to locate any grounding points exposed to spray, loosen and spray them with WD-40 or similar, then tighten them again.
Flaky grounds can cause all kinds of mysterious random problems.

Those things don't cost much and can often cure odd problems.

SOURCE: Battery charge good; engine turns over; no start up

Crankshaft sensor needs to be replaced. I had the exact same problem on my BMW 2 weeks ago. Exactly the same. It works fine now after replacing the sensor. It's the sensor which tells the engine when to produce the spark.

SOURCE: Will not start or come out of park. no lights and dash board dims when key is turned? battery has fully charge.

Using a voltmeter, check that voltage is identical to battery volts at the other end of cables. Check across the battery terminals, across connectors on battery, between negative post on battery and connection at starter, between positive post and end of negative cable then from postiive post and block. Wherever you find a variation, clean and re-check reading.If this does not help, there are sub system teststs you can do as well but I believe you will likely locate your problem before getting into that.

SOURCE: Replaced alternator and battery acted

sounds like you have left a cable off the battery terminal ,some vehicles have more than one cable on the battery terminal ,also when started take the neg battery lead off and if engine stops then its a new alternator ,if engine keeps running then the fault is the battery for a slow turn over .

Won't start. plenty of juice. Won't start, even with a jump. Very rapid clicking and all dash lights strong.

The clicking sound indicates that there is insufficient charge reaching the starter motor to turn over the engine. If you have enough charge going into the starter, use a multi-meter to check, test at no load and under load. Then check your terminals on the battery and starter to ensure all are clean and tightened properly.

How do I set the settings on my NAPA automatic starter/charger 85-435 to charge my car battery or to try to quick start my car? I have a 1997 VW Cabriolet.

It is best to "trickle charge" a low/dead car battery using the lowest setting. The "jump start" function will probably not have enough juice to start your car by itself. Refer to the manual of your charger for safety precautions.

2003 saturn ion wont turn over at all dont even get the usall starter clicking just one click every once in awhile

How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit Looking at a wiring diagram an testing the starter circuit with a DMM - digital multi-meter is the way to find the problem . Free wiring diagram's here Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine size. Under system click on engine then under subsystem click on starting . Click the search button then the blue link .
Looking at the diagram you will see this starting circuit is computer controlled . Ignition switch is a low voltage input to the BCM - body control module. A message to the ECM - engine computer from the BCM requesting a start over the serial data network (class2) will energize the relay sending B+ voltage to the S terminal on the starter solenoid . Your best bet mite be to have it towed to a qualified repair shop.

Range rider bugy with a kawasaki fc290v electronic ignition with a fully charged battery i turn the key and get nothing any ideas ?

I would say you should check to make sure you are getting juice to the starter when you are trying to start it. This can be done with a simple voltmeter or 12v light tester. If you are getting juice, then the issue seems to be a bad starter. If you are getting juice the it could be the solenoid, ignition switch or a simple loose connection. I will be more than happy to help you get this up and running. First start by testing to make sure you have juice going to the ignition switch and the starter when you turn the key.

The battery keeps draining i can charge it runs. park it at night it runs the battery down. i have tried a new battery.tried charging it and not driving the truck and at still drain the juice.

remove the pos battery terminal and connect a test light to the cable and battery, remove the fuses one at a time till the light goes out, remember the dome light is on when checking interior fuses. either remove the bulb or push the door button in, this will direct you to the circuit that has the problem

My buick lesabre is having problems starting. the battery is charged, the lights come on when i turn the key but when i try to start it all i get is a click. what is the problem and how can i get to where...

Typically a battery can power the lights, etc. and still not start the car when it is "bad". The clicking is the starter not getting enough juice from the battery. Jump start the car and go to an auto parts store and get the battery checked. I suspect it will need replacing. In my 2002 the battery is under the back seat but there is a jumping post under the hood.

I have 1988 chevy camaro v6 2.8 Alternator is not puting juice back into the battery, i have a new battery and alternator. the car will run until the juice is gone from the battery,unless i'm running...

Does the charge lamp work? If not fix it. The alternator needs excite voltage or it won't work. In the past, worked on 80 Camaro, the generator wouldn't charge, no excite voltage. The charge lamp on the dash wouldn't work. I removed the dash enough to get at charge lamp bulb, it had vibrated loose in the socket, over time, pushed it back in, the lamp started working and the generator started charging. The L terminal at the gen should be excite voltage. At that time, I also tried to use jumper wire to get excite voltage to generator, it didn't work for me, either. I'm not sure battery voltage is proper? Those connections have to be real good.
The bat terminal on the generator, hot all the time, engine off, it should be. If not check that wiring circuit. Could be other issues.
