Sounds like the ignition module,if the starter is turning the engine over,the starter is fine.

Hi can any1 help me with my nissan sentra problem?my car just shut off while driving and lost power be for it shut completely off tried to crank it back up but it didn't start sprayed some starter


Crank shaft sensors often fail without triggering a code. But in its early stages, a check engine light may be on. Symtoms of a bad crank sensor are: poor acceleration ( lack of power ) rough idle, ETC. sometimes you may be able to start it normally, and other times it takes 3 or more times. If the check engine light is on take it to a auto parts store and thy can read the code for free. To tell if that's the problem. God-Bless!

I have a 2006 is250 lexus push button start and it only starts sometimes....radio, lights, nav everything works but it won't crank....takes 3-4 times before it cranks and it doesn't happen eve


The first thing you want to check for is the brake signal,without this signal it will not crank,this is the easy one make sure you get brake light,the second is to have the starter tested by a direct method,this gives the indication of the health of the starter

97 LaSabre won't start, will shut off when runnin, has had fuel pump replaced 3 times, and battery terminals are good. Any ideas?


The crank sensor will sometimes fail when the car gets hot. I have ran some of these cars before until they cut off. I sprayed come water on the crank sensor and the car restarted. Replaced crank sensor and the car did not come back again for that problem again.

Car will be running just fine i ll stop to get gas or just cut the car off and sometimes when i go to crank the car back up it ll just be dead silent it won't turn over or anything and then if you wait a...


Sounds like the problem is with the battery, probably bad connections with the cables. Clean the cables and posts. If this does not do it, you probably need a new battery. Other possibilities are bad starter brushes or a bad starter solenoid.

Engine will not crank intermitantly


Crank sensor can translate heat. Not allowing restart after the turbo heat radiates in the area. Try a wad of aluminum foil in front of the crank sensor(on the block behind the turbo) . It protects it from heat and its a cheep test. If this works you can make a better sheild or leave the foil.

02 pontiac sunfire won't crank at random times


Hi, I had the same problem with my girlfriend's 97' sunfire, it wouldn't start so I jumped the starter terminals which I think screwed it up even more (causing the theftlock light to come on). It turns out this is a common problem that can be solved by hooking up a GM Tech2 scanner, going under "body" codes, and following the instructions for bypassing the PASS LOCK SOLENOID. Hope you find this helpful, Byron

Trouble starting


Your starter contacts are bad. You have 2 options: Replace the starter assembly, or remove the starter & replace the internal solenoid contacts & the solenoid plunger. This is a common problem with Toyota starters; I replace contacts 3-4 times a week.
