    check the light switch and circuit...something is making connection when it should not, I'm not there to test it but you can do that. If you pull the light fuse, does the battery still go dead?

Sounds like a bad (shorted) headlight relay switch.
test: If it always happens, then unplug the relay switch at the end of your driving day. Put back in the next day. Does the engine start?
The headlight relay (little black box with 4 connectors) is located in the fusebox under the hood. It pulls straight out.

Replace it.

Is the battery good? sometimes low voltage can do weird stuff ....if you have to jump it, either the battery is bad, or something is draining it.

No power but full batteries


Get out your volt meter and check the battery voltage, should be about 12 volts, then turn the key and see how far the voltage drops. If it drops below 9 volts or so, you probably need a new battery. Sniff around the vents of your alternator around fuse box, see if you can locate what actually fried..would suspect the alternator if this happened after driving the truck. The alternator charges the battery as you drive. If it is not functioning the engine will drain your battery until the vehicle dies, and probably wouldn't start even with a jump. Not real sure how to test the alternator without the truck running. Running voltage should be around 14 volts with a properly functioning alternator.

My car stalled and it wouldnt start but it would turn over today it don't turn over or start my lights are dim my key stuck in the ignition and the truck dont open is it electrical or my battery ?...


It sounds like you have a bad battery or alternator (as you guessed). Could also be corroded terminals. Check voltage at the battery the next time it starts (jump start it if you need to). If the voltage is less than 14 volts when the engine is running then you probably have a bad alternator or voltage regulator. If Voltage looks good then you need a new battery.

So what do you have for voltage at the battery? Sounds like the alternator went bad. There should be around 14 volts at the battery with the engine running. Anything less and the alternator would be the first thing I suspected.

2005 Mazda 3 won't start; when I turn the ignition the dashboard lights flicker and a loud clicking sound occurs


the battery is low on power. the lights will still light for a bit longer but your engine needs more cranking amps to turn it over. The clicking sound is your starter without enough power. Have someone help you jump the car. or if you have a manual transmission, get the car moving 5mph+ somehow (push or hill) and pop the clutch out with the keys in the ignition in the "on" position. your car will start right up. if your car regularly needs jumped you probably have a bad battery. if your car looses power while driving you have a bad alternator.

My ignition went bad, i need to crank the car without ignition switch... need hotwire instructions to get car in garage


What year car? make and model? What is exactly happening? Be specific. Is the lock cylinder not turning? does it turn with no response from starter? Is the security light illuminated on your dash when you turn your key forward? Let me know. I might be able to help you. Oh ya... Do you have a little black chip on your key? or does it say PK3 or something similar to that on the key shaft?

Engine starts for 3 seconds and then shuts down, radio,locks,trunk release,interior lights do not work, clock/radio display shows time but nothing from radio


Hi,
This could be a tricky one - so just go through the options methodically untill you effect a repair.

If it has an immobiliser fitted - try using another key. Sometims the chip in the key fails.

If you did anything prior to this problem - jetwashing, using a mobile phone near the steering column, serious work etc - try these areas first.

Check alternator function.
Check fuses.
Check fuel level.
Look for leaks.
Check belts condition.

It is behaving like a major electrical fault. Check the BIG fuses in the engine bay fusebox. After this - check that the ignition switch is supplying a switched live feed when in the "on" position.
It could be a faulty switch contact. Possible if you have uprated lights somewhere.

Car wont start, lights will come on and radio and windows. doesn't appear to be battery, but it also wont jump off either. is this the starter. makes no noise what so ever when you turnt he key


This exact same thing happened to me, it can be a number of problems. You might not have enough battery charge to get the car going since the fuel pump in this car is electronic, my car did not start but when i took it to a mechanic thinking the battery was perfect because lights and all were on they jump started it and it started then immediately died, i also had a choke pull off failure, leaks in my carburetor, and the float was to heavy causing flooding. 185 dollars later and a rebuilt carburetor my car had a smooth idle and turned on immediately after turning ignition. but then to find out my alternator was bad hence the battery only having enough power for the radio and lights.so in short try jumping the car even though the battery seems good, check your carb or get it checked by a mechanic, then check if your alternator is ok. if i waited for two days without attempting to start car then trying it would start if i held the ignition and pushed the gas pedal down until it started. (see if thats the case for you) my guess is you carb, battery, and alternator.
