The battery terminals may be loose or the battery needs to be recharged, replace if necessary.
Batteries wear out with use. Regularly checking the electrolyte level can extend their useful life.
A maintenance free battery can be installed if you often forget to check the electrolyte level.

1995 MAZDA MPV. I THINK IT MIGHT BE COIL. REPLACED BATTERY. THEN STARTED A COUPLE TIMES WITHIN HOURS THEN NEXT DAY NOTHING. JUST CLICK WONT START AGAIN FULL START FEW TIMES DEAD NEXT DAY


u have to make sure nothing is draining the battery. It sounds like a drain or it may be a fault in the ignition (starter etc) if all else is working.

Why will my car not start?


First have the battery load tested by Autozone or O'reilly auto parts store, while you are there have them do an OBD2 fault code retrieval. It is all free.

Reduced power light came on right after abs fault light came on


Firstly, you will have to perform a jump start, using another vehicle or battery.

I suspect that your alternator may have failed, so please do the following:

1) With vehicle running, use a voltmeter across the battery terminals. If charging is lower than 13.5 volts, then you can replace the alternator.
2) If charging can go up to 14 volts when revving the engine slightly, then go to 3
3) With engine off, check voltage across battery terminals. If lower than 12.4 volts, and if alternator check was okay, then replace the vehicle battery and retry.

My 2003 Rodeo is having problems starting. Sometimes it turns on with the first try, other times on the second. But lately I have to try it 6-20 times before it starts. It varies. The noise it makes if...


need to load test battery, this vehicle will not start or power up engine ECU if battery voltage is dropping to 10 volts or below while cranking. so if starter is clicking some times due to low voltage engine will not fire up(start) but cranks over seemingly fine. also when not starting does check engine light flash at all?
check all earths after checking battery with load tester if battery is ok then there was problems with immobiliser modules causing this fault and there is a revised module for this as well as checking wiring for key reader to immobiliser, also are there any aftermarket electronics fitted to vehicle? which could be causing problem due to location and wiring into vehicle.

System will not work,I can here it click but nothing happens.


sounds like you may have a bad battery. try and jump start the car and see if it will start then.
if it still will not start with good fresh voltage then I would say that the starter solenoid could be at fault. but 9 times out of 10 it is a bad battery.

Accord seems to be draining power overnight. only a fast clicking sound when attempting to start. battery 6 months old.


hi, it seems you have a fault DISCHARGE OF BATTERY: make sure there is no lights left ON vehicle inside or out, if phone charger left ON the fast clicking is the starter motor solinoid triing to connect to the starter motor NOT ENOUGH CURRENT TO START ENGINE, sometimes the alternator can have a slight fault, water driping on the contacts on the alternator will flatten the battery, (this is a DIRECT CONNECTION TO THE STARTER MOTOR and BATTERY). naturally the clock, radio, alarm system, all these sytem reduce the battery but this is NOT THE FAULT. charge the battery again it may be just this once. gerry

soundss like a bad starter, use a test light on small wire going to starter, have somone hold key in the crank position if you get power to the small wire at starter then its a bad starter, hope this helps.
