2002 ford windstar first wouldnt start, jumped and started, drove 200 miles and turn


You need to have the factory security system scanned, it is most likely locking you out due to a fault.

Daewoo Leganza turns over but wont start, just getting a clicking sound from under the hood. Any clues to what this may be?


you need two people one at the key and one at the starter first check batery connectionsmake sure there clean .then check cableswiggle to see if there loose .than check battery do the head lights come on bright . not ok than repair batery conn cables or charge batery. if ok than follow the click to the starter hopefully, cilinder shaped item mounted to tranmission engine connection point.( while in park or nutral) they turn key to start position you tap on starter case .if it cranks over you need to replace starter.

It wont crank like not getting power


ok sounds like you have a dead battery
1) if turns but slowly:

posible causes:
1.1) old dead batery/
or underchaged battery >check altenator in this case

did you leave your headlights turnt on and drained the battery of its charge?if so get a jump start and then run the car for 30-45 mins to rechagre the battery

if you have at your disposal anothere batery that you know has a good charge
try starting your car with that batery(not using jumper cables) hook it up!
if the slugish turn over is still there

1.2) check your wire conections for corision this means completly disconecting 1 lead at a time (only on one end of that lead)and cleaning them with a wire brush or some sand paper.
(on the battery and the starter also the ground strap conection to the frame.)

2) WONT TURN OVER AT ALL:
posible causes:
2.0) dead battery >try charging it>get a jump start
2.1) blown turnkey igntion fuse
2.2) blow fuse for main har nes wires
2.3) bad starter
2.4) corosion on wire conection (most often the batery terminals)
2.5) starter replaced and hooked up incorectly.

2.6) alram system preventing the turnkey igntion system from getting power

Why is my car trying to start when i attach the


Sounds like the starter solenoid is stuck on, most likely need to replace the starter, sometimes what can be done is tap the solenoid with a wrench or a small hammer and it may come loose, if it stops i would still recommend replacing the starter because it will happen again 9/10 times. Also check the wiring to the starter and make sure the start wire is not shorted or installed improperly. If there is constant voltage at the smaller start signal wire, the problem is somewhere in the wiring or the keyswitch.

87 regal will not start. i turn key starter just clicks but does not begin to turn motor. ita new napa lifetime starter


Hi check the batery conection to be well tigth and clean, if they are ok you have to check the starter motor an the starter solenoid, very often its only brushes. allso if you rotate the crank shaft some times fix the problem. and dont forget to check the batery charge.

Secruity light stays on the truck won't start


Did the batery die??? Did you have to boost??? could be one of two things the pcm or your key needs to be reprogrammed, for the key connect the batery to a batery charger with it still connected to the truck, leave the ignition on for about 10-15 minutes or until the security light goes out, when it does go out turn off the ignition and turn it back on for another 10-15 minutes repeat this another time and it should be ok, if not take it to GM to have them check the pcm or replace...

goodluck...
