When I go start the car it does nothing


Battery could be dead. (Like maybe an interior light was left on for a long time) Do any lights come on in the dashboard when you turn the ignition key to run or start? Any noises from the starter/solenoid? If not, first place to check is the battery. If you have a battery charger, put it across the battery and see if any lights come on when you turn the key. If you are a member of AAA, call them and they can come out with a new battery and test your battery to see if that is indeed the problem.

I have a 1992 lincoln town car and replaced alt and battery. on idle its at 14.4 and then soon as i accelerate to about 1500rpms lights dim and voltage drops to 12.2 and battery light comes on let off gas...


I would go back to the power and ground cables. First, you checked grounds and cleaned them. Do you have all the grounds in place. From the battery, you should have a ground from the battery to body, battery to the engine and from the engine to the body. Positive side should be from the battery to the alternator, battery to the starter and battery to the under hood fuse panel. Check these cables also. Since you 14 volts going to 12 volts, I would suspect a engine to body ground or corrosion at the fuse panel plugs/connectors.

Trouble shoot a 2007 honda crv starter


Take the starter off for testing. If the lights were normally bright, and went dim when key was in cranking position, it means the start circuit is working-battery power is going to the starter, but it won't do anything. The starter motor is probably bad.
Good luck.

Car does not start, sounded like battery, but battery ok. Turn key and a light on the lower left of instrument panel comes on, just says "CHECK" and what could be a picture of the engine(?), and the alarm...


I'm not an expert on cars, but from my experience, if the lights go dim while trying to start, but the engine doesnt turn, then it's usually the starter which is bad. It's because the starter is faulty and drawing too much battery power. I'v also heard of many people having problems with the security system (with cavaliers). but if the lights are going dim, that probably means the battery power IS reaching the starter, so i would concentrate on the starter first. If i remember correctly, my brother had a ford, and the ground wire came off of the starter, and when he tried to start it, there was nothing, but the lights would go dim. Again, similar to a faulty starter. Even if the starter itself is bolted to the engine, if the wires going inside the starter aren't connected properly, that could cause the problem. Other than starter being the problem, possibly a bad ignition switch???

1990 buick no start turn key dash lights go out and all is dead


When you say "turn key dash lights go out and all is dead", do the lights come back on when you turn the key back to "off"?
With key off, try turning on your headlights- are they bright?
Flip to high beams-do they get brighter?
**If lights get dim while trying this, it's the battery-(dead/needs charged or replaced-which may have been caused by a bad alternator).
Leave lights on, now turn your ignition switch to "on"-do the lights get dim or go out?
Try and start the car-anything change?
If the lights were fine until you tried to start the car, more than likely your battery terminals need cleaning/tightening.
The lights should at least get dim when you try and start the car but only while the starter turns over: when the engine is running your lights (as well as all your other electrics) are powered by the alternator.
If you do all this and lights are okay all through this procedure, your problem is probably in your starter circuit. (Starter relay, ignition/key switch)

Hope this helps.

My battery light comes on dim at idle and turns off when i rev the engine


This is indication of the battery being in good shape and almost fully charged. The light on the dashboard is an indication that your dynamo is producing sufficient current, which increases when you rev up and the vehicle is no longer drawing any charge from the battery. On idling, dynamo produces less current, thus to keep the electrical parts running it draws a small amount of charge from the battery thus lighting the indicator is very dim. Do not worry. Everything is OK with your cars engine & battery...........sodeep

Sounds like the alternator needs replacing or a loose wire/cable.Check the starter and alternator wires/cables are securely fastened.Also use a multi meter to check wether your alternator is providing enough power to run the electrical system,should be producing no less than 12.8 with all lights etc switched on.
