I disconnected the battery and cleaned the terminals. I reconnected the terminals and the vehicle started. I then restarted the vehicle and parked it. Five minutes later it would not even turn over. Rechecked all terminals and they where fine. What could the problem be????

The display on my 2011 Holden Cruz flashes off and on when excelarating and when taking foot off the excelarater.

This is a repair that needs to be diagnosed as it may be a module issue. However there may be a couple of tests you can do 1st. It will require two people. Pop the bonnet/Hood and locate battery,whilst someone sits in vehicle ignition on if you have noticed dash lights also go on and off turn lights on. Now second person wiggle battery terminals (are they loose ?). does the fault occure. 2 pop the cover of the possitive battery terminal are any connections loose wiggle does fault occure. 3 Back to the main earth lead from battery give this a firm shake top end middle and also where it connects to the front pannel.Any thing found or did fault occure.It may be worthwhile turning ignition off and waiting 3 minutes disconnect neg battery terminal and clean all earth connections you can see should be 3 on left by battery and one on right by air con pipe.clean away any paint on threads or panel connections. Depending on model you may require to put in a radio code after battery is reconnected. Disconnecting the battery may also reset modules. If any other oddities occure such as a no start when battery is reconnected disconnect it again only disconnect at earth terminal and wait 15 minutes and reconnect. Like a phone or home computer things can freeze. Good luck

1991 previa dashboard warning lights wont come on when trying to start van

Hello, it's very likely that some fuses blew during the battery disconnect/cleaning. There are some fuses under the cover on the center of the dash above the radio, there is another fuse box under the hood, this is where the 100A alternator fuse is, check it and if it's blown replace it. Check all the other fuses using a 12 volt test light with the key on.

2003 sierra gauges not working plus dash plus drains my battery any suggestions ?

Try this simple trick. Shut off every thing in your vehicle, radio, ac, lights, windshield wipers etc.Turn off the vehicle put it in park. Disconnect your battery , wait 5 minutes. Then Without turning any thing on leaving the vehicle in park reconnect the battery start the vehicle and let it Idle for approx 10 minutes. This allows your computer to reset all of your gauges. By assuring that everything is off your computer can concentrate on resetting everything correctly without missing a step . This will set your Idle and all of your Gauges. Whenever your battery is disconnected for what ever reason this step should be followed immediately upon reconnect.

Disconnected both terminals on battery, performed an oil change, reconnected terminals and car will not restart. Engine light and oil warning light comes on, speed clock in the dashboard goes from zero to...

why did you disconnect the battery cables to do an oil change.make sure the terminals(both battery and cables) are clean and tight.this may be all it don`t say but if you have anti-theft on the car it may need to be reset to start the car.

Need to change the parking light

Disconnect the ground cable from the negative battery terminal.
Remove the amber colored parking light lens. On older vehicles remove the screws that secure the lens to the vehicle's body. On newer vehicles, the lens is usually retained by hidden clips that can be disengaged by gently prying the lens away from the vehicle's body. Depending on the design of your vehicle, either press in on the parking light bulb and rotate it slightly to disengage it from the socket, or unscrew it from the socket as you would a household bulb. Install a new light bulb into the socket. Be sure to buy the proper bulb for your car's make, model and year. Reinstall the amber lens, either by gently pushing it back into place or reinstalling the screws that retain it.Reconnect the ground cable to the negative battery terminal
