If the battery is fully charged, you may need a starter.

Hi:
If you turn on your head light switch, and the lights are bright, you know your new battery has a good charge. If you can, remove your serpentine belt, and try to spin your alternator pulley by hand. If it is binding, or jammed, it could be keeping your engine from turning over. If it seems frozen or binding, replace the alternator. check all other accesories too, for binding. too. Once you check all pulleys, you can try to briefly start the car , with the belt off, and see if you have success

I had the same problem on my Dodge Caravan. When driving, all of a sudden the gauges would flake out and all the dummy lights would come on but car would remain running. Checked the battery and the alternator, both were fine. I finally figured out that it was the battery. Funny, the post that goes inside the battery had come loose. I was able to pull it out. Once I replaced the battery, the problem went away.

SOURCE: car want start

check the fuel pump. If yo pull the fuel line to the carb and turn on the ignition you should get fuel pumping out of the line. Also check fuel filter under the right side of the car. If its clogged its not going to start.

Sounds as if you have a burnt "fusible link". Check your wires from the starter to the battery, and then to the fuse box.

SOURCE: Sometimes alternater does not charge battery

Drive the car to the auto parts store and have them test the battery and alternator for proper charge.  You probably just bought a dud, even though they are new.  Doesn't happen much but does happen.

Hi, I'm assuming you car does not crank. If it does crank, please ignore the advice below and get back to me with what it does when you turn the key.
There is a relay in the circuit for your security system. Make sure the security light is not on. Then try swapping that relay with another similar relay, such as the horn relay. The relay is either in the engine compartment or the trunk relay box.
If this works, replace the relay.
If this doesn't work, the problem may be your ignition switch. You can test the switch and wiring by interrogating the relay socket with a 12 volt test light. connect the test light clip to a ground point on the engine or chassis and probe the relay socket with the tip of the light. There should be one hot terminal with the key off and 2 hot terminals with the key turned to start. If you don't get 2 hot terminals with the key turned to start, the ignition switch or wire from the switch is bad.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Have a 2009 Saab 9.7x4,2i starter good alternater good but battery dies over night


Usual culprit is boot (Trunk) light.If not, try disconnecting battery and if a spark jumps as you take the lead off it shows there is a power drain. If no power drain it points to a faulty battery.

When staring my jeep it does not turn over and sounds like someone has a tiny hammer underneath the battery area, has new battery and alternater... HELP


its like a clicking noise, more then likely it is the starter, you can tap on the starter and see if it starts. First, I would try jumping the vehicle as a dead battery will do the same, even though its a new battery. Good Luck Tim

Assuming you replaced the solenoid with the starter, it may be the relay. If the relay is not making a good connection, it might have trouble throwing the solenoid. The relay should be in the relay box under the hood. You can break the relay open and watch it work while someone turns the key to verify the problem.

I have changed both the alternater and starter


This procedure usually works:
·Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine. Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter.

·Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.

·Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's pinion gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck pinion gear.
·Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.
