It's sounds like a neutral safety switch issue or a problem with the security key system

2008 Chevy Equinox would not start, turn key and nothing happened, replaced battery, ran just fine for a week. Tried to start one week later it acted like it wanted to start but wouldn't. Had ju


Usually a sign of something draining the battery.
The machine test probably showed the battery could hold a charge and the alternator was charging the battery.
You may need to have someone check for a power drain.
When the key switch is off, there may be a weak short to ground or a relay or component that is using power.

2006 Mazda 6 will not start


U must find out why the starter is not cranking to start the engine. Have you checked battery terminals for cleanliness and lack of corrosion? Starter terminal wire good and solid? Solenoid any good? Connections? Relay issue?

Try getting a schematic so you can trace it out and find source of anomaly.

I locked my doors this morning and a few hours later someone told me my car was clicking, i unlocked which wouldnt work with remote so i used key tried to start and nothing no power to anything use turn...


The battery is dead. I don't know why it dies so quickly. I have the same problem. If my car sits for two days without driving it then it dies. My car was on the side of the road for three days and it wouldn't start. Something is draining the battery.

check starter for power on main battery wire and on smaller wire from ignition switch while someone turns the key if your getting power on both wires it's the starter if you want you can also tap on the starter and starter solenoid while the key is being turned and see if it starts but it does sound like starter to me if your not getting power to the starter on the small wire make sure your alarm isn't interfering and check ignition switch

Strange starting issues or lack there of.


You nailed the problem in the second sentence. Likely the belt tensioner is failing, causing the belt to become loose and slip. That in turn allowed your alternator to slip instead of charging your battery. While you drove, you were running on battery only. There is enough power in there to drive for sometimes over an hour. When you went to re-start, there was insufficient power to operate starter (which needs more juice to turn than anything else in the car) This lowered battery voltage further, tripping the security system. You will need a new serpentine belt, idler pulley and battery charge, then re-activate security system. Never worry about giving too many details...far better than some posts I read that would have said something like "my car. click why" And fifteen questions later I sometimes get close to the answers you provided...nice to see someone out there that's literate!!!
good luck with it!
