Take your starter off (remember where which wires attached where). Take a pair of jumper cables, attached to the battery, and put the ground to the casing. Apply power where you signal wire attached to the starter. The bendix should engage and spin. Keep a foot on it as it should engage pretty violently. Either way this "shade tree" test turns out, I would still recommend taking it to the auto parts store for a bench test. Let me know how this works out for you.

Engine won t shut off


Poor ignition switch .Replace it and check for the blown fuses & your problem will disappear .As ignition controls the current to ECU so if the ignition will still be transmitting the voltage to ecu with the key turned off so how will a engine shutoff? think it's logical.You have been tricked by mechanic as it's not the computer fault at all.

How do you know the battery is fine? Sure sounds like you have a weak battery- the symptoms are all the electrical bits work- except starting the car. All your electrical systems don't need much current, but your starter needs a lot. If your battery isn't fresh then your car won't start, but everything else will appear to work. You can test the battery by looking at voltage across the terminals when you try to start the car, if it's less than 12 volts your battery needs to be replaced. If your battery is more than 5 years old it should be replaced anyway. Good luck, let us know how it goes.

2008 escape hybrid won't start when you turn the


I am not familiar with hybrids, but i think when you start, it's starting with the battery, so I think you have a bad connection, check and clean the battery terminals.

I Have a 2006 pontiac G6 gt with the 3500 engine, The battery was removed positive side first and now after it was replaced the fuel pump isn't working, everything else seems fine but the pump...


You can't fix it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzzkill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. Sorry.

My ford taurus doesnt turn on. Lights, stereo dashboard lights all turn on except the engine it sounds like it wants to turn on but it doesnt I dont know what can be wrong with the car??


If the starter is clicking, or the engine is turning over slowly, try replacing the battery or try getting a jump to see if you can get the engine to start.

If the engine is turning over, but won't start, it sounds like you may have a bad timing belt or your timing tensioner or idler has gone out.
