Have the alternator and battery checked. Startor may be flat, if it is, hit with a hammer until you get a new one. Recommend calling salvage places or junk yards for parts due to the year.

Dead battery, used jumpers. Lights work dashboard lights up. Motor will not turn over


If the battery is very dead, it can take a while for the dead battery to regain enough charge to start. If you are jump starting from a jump box and not a running vehicle, there may not be enough power available to get the charge to a level that can start the vehicle. Hook up the jumpers cable to a running vehicle and allow 10-20 minutes for the battery to gain some charge. Monitor both batteries carefully during this time and should any unusual amount of heat or if smoke starts to come from either battery, shut everything down and disconnect as quickly (and safely) as possible.

Saturn jumper cables hooked up backwards


Try charging the battery more. Even though your lights may come one, starting a vehicle requires massive amounts of amperage from the batter. It's possible that your jumper cables aren't a thick enough guage to supply enough power as well. Sometimes the vehicle you're jumping from might not have enough power to support your vehicle's starting power requirements.

Cars electrical system goes completly offline, nothing will illuminate or work until I disconnect the battery. When I turn the key to start the car everything shuts down again. Has anyone heard of this...


It sounds like a Body ground problem or a shorted Battery. Try using jumper cables and connect the NEG jumper cable to a body part on the Firewall. Then see if the lights and accessories work. You can leave the Battery cables in place. If the lights work, see if the car starts.

Dirty Battery cables can also cause this problem. So can a shorted Battery, though I would think a lightbulb would work with even a shorted Battery. Everytime you disconnect the Battery you are making a new connection when you reconnect the cables. The ends should be shiny not black.

You can eliminate the shorted Battery by disconnecting your Battery cables and use the jumper cables to bypass the Battery and use another vehicle to run yours via the jumper cables. They you will know if the Battery is shorted.

Autozone and Oreillys do free tests on Batteries and will scan your car for free if you can get it there.

Ignition


Sounds like the battery is dead, you have just enough power to have the lights come on, but no cranking of the starter. Try putting the battery on a trickle charger, or hook up jumper cables to another car which is running. Let it run with the jumper cables connected for two mintues before you try and start your car.
