SOURCE: esp dashboard warning light is constantly on... TT quatro 2002

warning lights are usually got to do with the electronics in the carm so you should go to a mechanic and ask him to check the cars electronics which is free and he will probably say your electronic wiring is smashed the cheapest thing to do is rewire your car it would cost 100-250 euro where as if you got the car comprimised it would cost 700-900 euro

SOURCE: Left rear brake light stopped working but bulb and fuses are OK.

take the bulb back out have someone sit in car apply brake get your self a circuit tester and check to see if this circuit is carrying efficient 12 volt current! some times in cold weather these bulbs get hot with long period of breaking and when released condensate and rust begins and you get what you have perhaps bad socket! this would be a ideal location to begin and probably end,

SOURCE: mk1 A4 ABS warning light

I have a 2000 Audi A4 and the break wear sensor warning light come on for me too. It does not flash and is orange in color. I have asked the Audi dealer twice about it and they told me it's because the previous owner put aftermarket break pads on it, thus messing up the sensors. I don't know about the ABS warning and other than that I wish you luck on it.

Could be a defective battery, bad solenoid, or even bad ignition switch. When I was fixing cars, I always replaced the solenoid when I replaced the starter, but your mechanic might not have.

Are you saying it won't crank, or won't start ?
If it does not crank, and you have replaced the battery and starter, the problem may be in the neutral safety switch.

Van will not crank over, seems to have no power to the starter


Battery? If OK, turn the ignition switch to START and listen for a click indicating the starter relay is closing. If it clicks, the starter may have failed. If no click, check 10A CRANK fuse 8 in the instrument panel fuse block. If OK, check 40A IGN-A fuse in the underhood fuse/relay center. If OK, check for 12V at the top of the IGN-A fuse. If OK, the ignition switch, the park/neutral position switch (shift quadrant), or the starter itself are the only other possibilities

I put in an new ignition switch on my 86 caprice and it want crank. How can i crank it with engine in the car.


Yes there are a couple of reasons your car may not turn over. Low battery. Faulty starter motor,( tap the starter on the side with a hammer this will free up a stuck pinion gear) or internal engine damage. Were there any problems prior to it not turning over?

2001 jeep cherokee sport will not crank


But those are ignition parts. If the car won't crank, there is a problem between the battery, ignition switch, and the starter.
Try this, Darren: With key on, does your dash light up, gauges working and check engine light on? Turn key to start. Do you hear a click form the area of the starter? If you hear the starter solenoid click, and you know the battery is charged up good, then likely the starter is out, and needs to be taken off for testing or replacement. But that is assuming that the battery cables and their.connections are good and allowing full battery power to the starter.
If you hear no click in start, turn the headlights on and watch their intensity while someone turns key to crank. If the lights dim noticeably and no cranking, then the starter is bad or needs testing. If the lights don't change intensity when key is at crank position, then possibly the starter solenoid is bad or the circuit from ignition switch to the starter solenoid is not allowing current to pass. Take off the small wire (brown, I think) from the starter solenoid and see if it has power when key is in crank position. If it has power, the starter has to come off-it or the solenoid is bad. If no power on the solenoid wire with key in crank, then the circuit from ignition switch to the solenoid will have to be checked. There are at least a couple of components in that path- one is the starter relay, another is the neutral safety switch (or clutch switch on manuals). Also if no power on the solenoid wire, check the 30 amp fuse in the power distribution center by the battery. It may be fuse # 10, at least it is on a '97 Jeep. Heck, check all your fuses while you're at it.
Good luck.

92 mercury topaz small 4 cyl. I hooked up jumper cables and engine started cranking, no key in ignition. I had installed a new starter, battery and solenoid relay on the fender well 2 months prior. About 2...


It sounds like the ignition switch again, thats the only source for the starter solenoid to power up. I'd disconnect the power to the starter solenoid (ignintion input small wires, not the battery cables). Jumper the battery again, check for power on the solenoid for the ignition feed, if it has power then yes the ignition switch is bypassed somehow. I've seen issues with the back side of the connector going to the ignition switch where the wires are bare from being flexed, the insulation breaks and wires touch each other. Carefully check the condition of the wires going to the ignition switch, if good replace ignition switch again.

Car won't start. Just replaced battery, alterntor and fuel pump. Keeps on cutting off and won't crank.


check the wire from battery to starter and make sure its clean and tight! if wire is ok, it maybe in starter or starter solinoid. also check and be sure wire on ignition to starter is ok.make sure power is at or going through ignition switch. a bad ignition switch will cause many starting problems. if switch is bad, then dash lights will not go off when turning key off. check wiring and starter first. have a good day !

99 grand am changed starter in 2.4l and wont turn over


make sure you have power to the b+ terminal of starter. Also make sure you got power to the ignition terminal on starter with key in the crank possition. With key in the crank possition check that power is being tranfered from solenoid to motor. If all these check ok replace starter. If no power in the ign(small gage wire on starter) possible ignition switch or p/n safety switch. If no powere on B+ check battery, battery cablem fusible link.
