Battery good, but car will not start? There have been no problems with my car. I just had a tune up and oil change about six weeks ago. But my car would not start today. the lights go on, radio, etc, and the battery is not "clicking". What could it be?

Could be a faulty start solenoid or your starter might need replacement in your 22 year old vehicle.

I would start by doing a tune up; replace the spark plugs and wires, change the oil/oil filter, and the fuel filter. All this should be fairly inexpensive if done yourself. If this does not solve the problem take it to a mechanic to see if he can diagnose it.

This sounds like a problem with the radio itself, though it may be a wire. I don't believe there is much risk of the problem spreading to other systems in the car. There is one wire to your radio that is always hot so that the memories can be kept. If you would like to troubleshoot, I can send you instructions. This would involve taking the radio out and checking the wire for voltage.

First make sure the terminal and posts are clean and greased.

Then make sure the alternator belt is tight.

The type of battery makes no difference as long as it fits.

What matters is whether or not the alternator is putting out 13.5 volts or higher, in order to keep the battery at 12.5 volts. Put a voltmeter on the battery and rev the engine.

2005 mazda 3 2.3l that is burning oil (no leaks)


possibly the pcv but check if your cars exhaust smoke is blueish or white in color if it does and your car doesnt have an oil leak then sure its burning engine oil along with fuel, the piston rings is defective, since you replaced engine oil the additive that the owner has put with the oil to prevent blowby is gone thats why it starts burning oil.....

Oil light flashing, last oil change 7 wks ago


I belive they didn't reset the oil light timer. I belive the sequence is 1. key on (not acc with engine off)
2. step on the brake pedal 5 times within 10 seconds. 3. key off. 4. start car. 5. check if the light went out. you may have to try it a few times to get it.

Engine seized up


How much oil is left inside the engine? Are there signs of oil loss under the car? is the drain plug tight and does it have the gasket in place? How about the filter?
None of these things will make your engine better,. but will give you the "why" it happened answer...the rest is up to you!!!
