Take your starter off and have it tested. The radio is supposed to turn off when you try to start. This is so the battery can send all the juice it needs to the starter.

Has been running perfectly fine, drove it home this afternoon, parked on the driveway. went to drive it tonight and it won't start, it won't even turn over.


Year make and model might help a bit. Things to check for are starter, alarm, spark, fuel. Does it make any noise while cranking, does it crank. The more info you supply the better the answer

I have seen issues like this on other Honda's and the problem turned out to be the ignition starter switch. Do this, jumper power directly to the starter solenoid trigger wire and see if the engine cranks.

When I Try to start the Car, I have power but the car will not even crank..it just sits silent...i have the radio...dash lights come on...but the engine just does nothing. i had no warning lights...nothing...


The most common problem here would be a bad starter, you can test it with a test light,have someone hold the key in the crank postion while you test foor power at the starter, there are two wires to starter one is a battery cable which should have power going to it at all times then a small wire that has power when key is in the crank postion to spin starter, if it has power then starter is bad, if theres no power then you may have a bad ignition switch or bad neutral safty switch, also try starting in neutral. hope this helps. another trick is while holding key in crank postion tap starter with hammer if it starts then starter is bad,

Changed starter...new battery....lights and radio work nothing happens when turn the key.


Starter Fuse? Possible failed ignition switch. Loose Cables on battery or starter. Starter not grounding properly. Bad starter Relay? Use Voltmeter check voltage going to main starter wire while someone cranks the motor if not power check power to starter relay while cranking if no power suspect ignition switch.

Radio turns off in starting position


this look like a low battery and every time you try to crank your car it takes more power and kill the main power to the radio
solution # 2 the radio as 2 power wires one is always hot ( with current) and the other is connected to the ignition switch if you have replaced the radio those 2 wires maybe are connected backwards the one that goes to the switch is probably connected directly to the battery and the one is suppose to be always hot is probably connected to the switch if you have the original radio have your battery tested and if is ok then try get a haynes book at any auto parts for you car and try to follow the wire that is always hot normally is a yellow or orange wire
solution #3 this apply only if you car still have the original radio
turn your ignition switch to the on position but don't crank your car and turn your radio on select a radio station then turn your ignition key off and wait 3 minutes then turn your ignition switch on again with out cranking your car and the radio should be in the same radio station you select if this test pass then chances are is your battery getting low and if this test fail then the hot wire has a blow fuse look for the fuse inside the hook let me know what happend and good luck

2004 Ford Explorer 4.0 v6 will not crank


You have a fuel reset switch that needs to be pushed back in. This is why you are not getting any thing to happen

The fuel pump inertia switch is located in your right front passenger
area. It is located on the right side of the transmission hump on the
toe board, just under the edge of the carpet. If you don't see any gas
leaking, or smell any gas, push the button down that has popped up
on the top of the switch. This will allow power to go to your fuel pump.

Car will not crank over


there are no sensors on any car that would keep the starter from engaging even if the fuel tank was completely removed remove the starter and have your local oreillys or autozone bench test it if its good then you have an electrical issue could be related to your ignition switch, starter and or ignition relay or fuses check all of those
