Check the battery cables, when you turned key to crank position did the lights go out? If yes, definately battery cables if no load test battery with a battery tester to see if it is any good.

Sounds like you may have a fuel leak, somewhere!
It could be out onto the (surroundings), or into the motor.
If the exhaust smells like fuel, I would almost bet it's leaking into the engine, and would have to guess that one or more of your fuel injectors are "seeping".

All the lights and every thing work ..it wouldnt crank lastnight ..we waited a little bit and it cranked but this morning it wont ...never a hint of a problem befofe....2004 dodge stratus


Did you verify that your battery is not the problem. Easy way to do this is hook up a voltmeter to the battery and try and start the car. If battery voltage falls below 9-10 volts you need to replace your battery. Even though your lights work the battery may not have enough capacity to turn the starter.

ENGINE CRANKS BUT WONT TURN OVER


you meant its a NO CRANK engine.
silent starter, say the word silent.
even the starter relay must click.
and if head lamps die, so will be the starter.
due to a dead battery,
sounds like a bad battery to me. dead or only
DISCHARGED.
if the Charge/battery lamp is off in the cluster driving. its ok. the alternator.

starter car with the jumper cables connected
and not next day.
only live jumps matter. or you go know where.
if you want to walmart they have tool there that
tests the alternator
battery
and for phantom drains all in 6 min work, the tool does all the work.

if the battery is charged, it will crank I bet
its discharging.
for 1 of 3 reasons.
1: its bad.
2: the charge system is dead.
3: phantom drains, it goes dead as you sleep
the head lamps dead is the big clue there.

1999 Pontiac Sunfire wont turn over


ok i had kinda the same problem. if your father or bf is decent with mechanics ask him to check any see if there is any spark if not tell him to check the cranksensor to c if there is an current going to it, also when u go to start the car is there a (theft system light that comes on in the dash and flashes if so, turn the key fully as if you were going to start the car but dont crank it and leave it be for about 15-20mins or until the light stops flashing. then turn the key off and try start again. the thing is that when u install a stereo into one of these cars theres a anti theft system that stops fuel from going to the injectors. thats why when u install a aftermarket stereo u are supose to get eh harness so that it doesnt engage the ats(anti theft system). and if there is no current going to the crank sensor cut the wire long enough to hood an extra wire to it and then hook it up to ignition fuse in the fuse box(inside the car) this will send a a current to the crank sensor so when u turn the key on it will start. this is only a temperary fix. just gives u enough time to pick up the money to bring the car to the garage and get it checked correctly. anything else just ask.
