I have a 1996 Astro Van that after running multiple errands and had been parked for approx. 6 hrs. would not start or even turn over. I thought it was the battery but the gauge shows that it is fine. ...


The voltage gauge only says what the battery voltage is. It is entirely possible that the battery's current capability can be severely weak even though the voltage looks normal. An easy check for the start circuit is to turn on the dome light and try to crank the engine. If the dome light doesn't dim and there is no attempt to start, then the battery is not the problem. If the dome light goes very dim or goes out completely, then the battery is too weak to crank the engine. If the battery is not the problem, then since there is no click or anything, the problem could be:
(1) Starter
(2) Neutral safety switch
(3) Ignition switch
(4) Start circuit wiring

Try leaving the key in on for 10-15 minutes. If the blinking theft light stops blinking and goes out, it has reset. Turn key to off, and then try to start it.

My car ran fine earlier today, I went to start it a few min. ago and i made a split second sound like it was going to start then nothing. the lights wont even turn on.


It sounds like a battery issue. New cars have a built-in voltage sensor that when it drops below a certain cranking amp level it will disconnect all power to the vehicle. It happened to me once. Try jumping it, if it starts it's the battery. Also clean the terminals as they do create a corrosive gunk around the positive terminal that cuts power from going into the wire. Some baking soda, a little water and an old toothbrush go a long way here. Also, if you have a battery terminal brush, even better. But be careful with any stuff falling on your eyes, clothes or skin.

98' Cav.. Drove it to store, shopped, didnt leave anything running or turned on. Went to car, opened dr...no dome light (thought, hmph, must have burned out -- fix later). Tried to start car... I turned...


this sound to me like at first I thought it was a fuse, as the problem went on it shifted more toward a weak cell in the battery, if a weak cell sits for a little while the battery will not hold the charge in that cell and that will cause loss of power, "its charge", in tne other cells. you had mentioned you used another battery and it ran great but when the battery was removed, things went wrong. You may check to see if there is water in your battery

Camaro wont turn over


First, clean your battery cables with a wire brush so you know you have a good connection from your battery. If that doesn't do it, it's most likely your starter or selenoid.

Won't turn over


You probably need a new battery. Starting takes a LOT more current out of the battery than the dome lights, etc.

The last couple of batteries that failed on me gave me no warning.
