The battery is dead, the low voltage causes the symptoms you have, replace the battery and clean the cables as needed

My 2004 impala dashboard lights come on while driving it doesn't cut of but after I cut the car off headlights flash an clickin noise start what wrong with my car please help Loretta


Impala's are famous for ignition issues, are the interior lights of your dash coming on when you want them, or just by themselves? The clicking after you turn off, I would check the security system, i.e., remote clickers, cars computer, key chip, ect. Sound like your alarm is attempting to engage

2010 corolla wont crank and start


Sounds like your ECM / ECU may need to be re-flashed at the dealer, have you tried pulling the codes? The check engine light does NOT need to be on for it to have codes stored. The starting issue could be caused by the TPS / MAF / MAP sensors, the flashing of the odometer could be something with your PSOM chip or your VSS sensor. Pull the codes see what you get.

Car wont start even after jumping it. No lights, etc. except for the security light. What's wrong?


Hi Linda , your vehicle has a anti-theft system problem ! Jumping it is not going to help ! The anti-theft system stops the starter from working ! Do you headlamps shine bright ? Horns work normally ? If you look at that security light when trying to start the vehicle does it flash rapidly ? Your going to need to have taken to the dealer , there the only one's that have the diagnostic tools to find out what is wrong !

95 chevy lumina.. security light flashing car wont start, passkey 2.. can i relearn it? how can i fix it cheap??


If your key has the black bump on the side of it, you can try to clean it. That is the resistor for the security system. The ignition reads that bump and if the resistance doesn't match, it won't start.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. A flashing light means there is major engine damage. You need to get your computer scanned asap to find out what is wrong.

My 2000 lesabre will start sometimes and wont sometimes. for the last wk it wont start. it has power lights work everything just wont crank whats wrong with it. jf1


Hello: Make sure the battery cables are clean No corrosion, and tight. If the security light is not flashing when you try to start it, the have a helper hold the ignition switch in the start position and you go under the car and hit the starter (not to hard) near the end that goes into the engine, If it starts then you need a starter. If the security light flashes while trying to start you have a pass key problem

I have an 1989 Plymouth Voyeger Starts when it feels like it


Have you tried cycling key for fault codes? Turn ignition to on (not start) then off, then on, then off, then on, leave it on, and count flashes of check engine light.
flash,flash,pause, flash flash, is code 22. 3 flashes, pause, then 5 flashes, would be code 35, etc. See what you get, & get back to us with them if you need more help, and please include what engine you have in the van.

Car wont start, no clicks no sound


make sure you have power getting to your starter when you crank. check the small nut on the starter. should have 12 v or very close to it. this will tell you if your getting power to the starter or if somethign before the starter and something maybe with your anti theft system or not. its hard to say online cause of that anti theft. doest the light flash at all? the anti theft light?

if your getting power to the starter when you crank make sure your getting good power to the starter by turning on the head lights and see if they dim. a good starter will cause the headlites to dim when attempting to start. if nothing dims check connections. or assume bad starter motor. make sure your also getting power to the main starter stud as well.

good luck
