My car will not start and I bought a brand new battery today and installed it. However the car still will not even fire up at all, but the power in the car still works. What could cause this?

Does the starter solenoid make a pronounced 'click' when the key is turned to 'start'? You may need to get some help to check--one person running the key, the other listening for the click. If you get the click, then you need to check the starter motor terminal for power (with a voltmeter or test light) that should appear when the key is turned. If no power shows, then replace the solenoid assembly. If power appears, then replace the starter motor itself. If you replace the starter yourself, remove the negative battery connector first to remove all power from the car. Good luck!

Sounds to me like you need the starter tested or replaced,if you are not getting even a click then the starter needs a set of brushes,if all you get is a click then you need a starter solenoid,either way the starter needs to come off.

Truck fires really well but wont start, seems like no fuel


Please define "fire power". Is this just the power from the battery swinging the engine, or did you check if there is a healthy spark on the plug wires? If an engine dies without warning, the chances are very good it is the crank angle sensor in which case there will not be any spark on the wires even though the starter will swing the engine quite lustily without starting.

New battery In mercedes no power


I'm not a car mechanic, but, it sounds like you might want to check the fuse to the ignition switch, and, if that fails, it might be a problem with the Start Safety Switch on the transmission. Good luck.

remove negative battery cable.hook up a test light between battery terminal and battery cablee you just removed.test light will come on bright.now start removing fuses one by one while watching the light,the fuse that kills the light supplies power to the. designated device. it tells you there is a draw in that circuit.

YOu don't say if the engine cranks. If it does, spray some quick start into the inlet while cranking. If it makes no attempt to fire or start, it is electrical, but it it fires the problem is fuel.

87 f250 drained brand new battery


I would first have the alternator checked by an auto electrician to ensure it is working correctly and is providing the correct volume of current. It may be faulty and when driving you will be drawing battery power instead of power from the alternator to run the electrics. This will drain the battery.

Alternators do not last forever and if you are still running the original unit it is likely to be on it's last legs and you will need a replacement unit.

Have you had your alternator checked? If batt. and alt. check out ok, then I would check to see if it is getting fire when it won't start and have the fuel pressure checked.

Whats the reason


sounds like the alternator isnt charging the battery... The starter is also possible if its not even trying though. One other possibility, is one of the battery cables may have loosened up.
