Was the car still running when you got up? If not, then the battery went dead. This may have been the last hurray for the battery. Remove the battery cables and clean them. Fully charge the battery with a charger and if it still will not start the engine, remove the battery and have it tested.

check the wire connections to earth , make sure the are clear of corrosion etc and tight , leave the ignition on for a few minutes then try to start , if still wont start try a jump start , even a new battery may be unservicable , if starts with a jump then take the battery back for it to be tested

Crank sensor


During the night or after the car sets for a while. The battery voltage will drop from the normal 13.6 to 13.8 volts when running and Charging, to between 12.3 to 12.6 volts. If the Crank Sensor is going bad, it may not operate correctly with the lower voltage. Check your Battery Voltage in the morning with a Volt Meter. If the Battery Voltage is lower than about 12.3 to 12.5 volts. You may need a new battery. Try leaving the battery on a low current Battery Maintainer overnight and see if it starts in the morning. I have seen many cars that shut down with Low Battery Voltage. Darn these New Fangled Cars and their Computers! FYI, we have never seen a Crank Sensor fail in this manner..... Check the RESTING Battery Voltage.

Battery is dead and wont start


Make sure the battery is fully charged before trying again. If the battery wont charge get a new one. Once installed use a multimeter to verify that the alternator is charging.

I have a 96 Dodge Intrepid and it wil not start. it clicks when you try to start it. All of the lights in the car are on. the battery has been charged. it cut off on me a few days ago and i thought i...


solenoid clicking, troubleshooting steps: Run 3 tests to troubleshoot.

1. try to jump start at battery terminals
2. unhook the jumpers and try to jump the solenoid following procedures at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over (see picture there--make sure car is in park or neutral)
3. Only if #1 and #2 fail to crank the engine, smack the starter motor (not the solenoid) with a hammer and then try to start.

Based on results of above tests, here are solution options:

If smacking the starter is the only test that worked, you have a dead spot on the starter commutator--replace the starter.

If it will jump start but will not crank by jumping the solenoid, check to make sure the battery terminals are clean and tight.

If it will not jump start and will not crank even by jumping the solenoid, the problem is either the cable to the starter or the starter/solenoid itself.
check the big red wire that goes from the battery to the starter and make sure it is strong and tight at both ends. If that is good, replace the starter/solenoid.

If it will not jump start but will crank when the solenoid is jumped, the problem is with the start circuit not getting sufficient current to the solenoid. This usually only happens when there is a separate starter relay (in the engine compartment relay box) that is worn out. Replace the starter relay.

Please let me know if you have questions.

My car was running fine all day yesterday until that night. I cut it off and it wouldnt start back up. Finally i got someone to give me a jump off and it worked but the dash lights kept on dimming in and...


You, my friend have a flat battery.

However, replacing the battery will not fix the problem, the battery is just a symptom, just like having cough syrup won't fix a cold, it will ojnly make your throat feel better.

What you need to do, is replace the battery, then get a multimeter, and check the voltage of the battery when the car is running at idle (in park/neutral), it should be 13.2-14.4v. If below this, im suspecting 12.0v or below, then you will have to have your charging system (alternator) checked.

Hi
Try to jump start the car.
Put the jump leads on and leave it for 10 mins
that will charge the battery up
then try and start.
Also check the starter motor.
