After jumpstarting my truck several times it wouldnt jumpstart anymore. I replaced the battery finally and it will not even turn over. Alarm works and all electrical seems fine, engine wont even try to crank. Had the ignition switch replaced several months back. My vehicle is a 1993 chevy k1500

    The starter never made a sound like it was ever going out. When the key is turned nothing, not even a click ever. Can this still mean that the started went out? At no time of jump starting it did the starter ever drag or sound like it was going out.

    Thanks

When a battery is weak it wears the starter down. i'd say the starter is bad now. it problably just clicks when you turn the switch

Will the alarm kill switch on a 96 gti golf be active if no led lights are flashing


have a look at the earth lead from the body of the car to engine to see if this is corroded an easy test would be to put a jump lead from negative of battery to anywhere on engine gearbox if this doesn't solve issue check the lead going to starter motor for corrosion and tightness

Battery charge system light is on


likely your alternator check for voltage at the battery when running it should be 13 to 15 volts . charge your battery with a charger test for voltage when turned off it should be around 13 volts if the battery is good

1993 Jaguar xj6 won't start, battery drained of power. Went away over xmas and new years so have not used our 1993 Jaguar xj6 for more than 4 weeks (probably more like 6 weeks!) and battery hence lost all...


Is the car immobilized? if so you may have to lock and unlock the car with the key and not the remote.

Is it turning over or just nothing, also starter motor may be jammed. put the car in gear with the hand brake off and push the car forward until you feel the engine turn over. You dont need the keys in the car!

This should free the starter off, sometimes they jam very tight and will not move at all, on these jags. they get rusty quickly if sat about. I had a XJ many years ago great motors.

Good luck.

Vehicle running fine. came out of work to drive. would not turn over, and odometer flashing like crazy


Your battery has failed and requires replacement.

Typically when you start getting the heiroglyphic flashes on the odometer it usually means the battery is too low to even jumpstart.

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

2002 buick lesabre won't jumpstart. Car ran fine


There are a couple of factors here:
  1. If you noticed the car getting harder to start when warm lately, it could be the starter is bad; a bad starter will work when cold but once it heats up, will require more and more power to turn over
  2. Bad battery; a dead battery won't turn the car over even with a jump; it would need a slow charge to work again; even sealed batteries have caps that can be pried open to do a cell check (battery cell checkers inexspensive at the auto parts store) if you have 1 dead cell, the battery needs replacement
  3. Corrosion; just because the posts and cables may be clean at the battery, doesn't mean there's no corrosion on the other ends of the cables
Hope this answers your question and gives you a good place to start. All the best.

1992 saab 9000 car won't start, try to jumpstart to go get new battery when we put cables on the alarm goes off take cables off alarm stops help!


Jumpstarting cars with electronic ignition is not a good idea. Your car is also fitted with an immobilizer, hence the alarm going off. Get someone to drive you to a place that sells suitable batteries, and fit the new one. You should be fine.

Mitsubishi Magna GLX 1993 jumpstarting sets off alarm!


Is the alarm factory fitted, cheap, or a top of the range.
the factory alarm you can pull the cable of the horn untill you get the car started.
there are some alarms that go off when there is a voltage change, and some will keep going for a couple of minutes if the battery is dead flat untill there is power to equilze the power abit,
and some alarms have a key over ride in the siren.
if its a cheap alarm take the battery of and charge it,(the alarm will cut out as soon as the battery is disconnected.
~dont jump start from a dead flat battery, as it can cause a lot more problems with the electrics, leave another car running with the jump leads on for at least 5 min first.~
