Make sure you don't have a theft deterrant chip that is loose - unplug then replug, make sure it's tight.

1999 plymouth breeze 2.0 l battery and alternator are good but the engien wont crank unless you jump start it


You have to make sure battery has a full charge and that means testing. Your saying the starter motor won't even crank the engine? I'd have to check starter wiring circuits for voltage drop?Also, make sure battery connections are good. Engine cranking, your systems get battery voltage. Engine running, the vehicle system get generator voltage which can be several volts higher than battery voltage.
Use a digital multimeter across battery posts, everything off, what is the reading, the generic spec for a full charge is around 12.6 volts. Leave the meter leads hooked up, have helper turn key to crank, what is the reading, how far does it drop? The generic spec says it shouldn't drop below 9.6 volts, that spec may be subjective but, close.

Automotive electrical problem


Daniel, If battery is known to be good, could be bad connections at battery, starter/solenoid, or ground on engine/frame, battery cables also could be bad with build up of corrosion internally. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

2002 chev impala, will not start. fuel pump and gauge not working on dash. When i go to start all lights go out on dash and than they will come back on in 3 or 4 seconds?


Have the battery tested if no good replace. Check for power at the starter cable and then while someone holds the key in the crank position check for power at the trigger wire of the starter. If you have power but no crank or click then you may have a bid starter or the engine is seized. If no power on the tarter little wire which comes from the ignition switch make sure you fuses and relay is good and that your ignition switch is working. If the battery tests good have your alternator checked as well.

I have been having problems in heavy rains it miss out. now the engine won't crank. 2004 durango. the battery is good.


The moisture in the air is an obvious indication of a poor electrical connection/contact. You must inspect the ignition cap and rotor and replace if excessively worn.

Car cranked for about 5 seconds then everything went dead. Battery is good, fuses on left side of the steering collum good. 1997 buick lesabre 3.8 L engine. Is there a fusable link somewhere? Could not...


I would check the connections at the battery for the pos. and neg. posts or side posts. If it cranked, then it should keep on cranking for more than 5 sec if the connections are good and the battery is fully charged.

There are fusible links, but they generally won't blow because of cranking.

Good luck on this repair.

Engine cranks but won't start


Most possible is your cam or crank sensor. Check foro signal and sync between them. I would start with the crank sensor first
