My car starts sporadically. When I disconnect the battery and reconnect it, it will start. In reconnecting the second post, there are sparks. A line is open somewhere? Could it be the neutral safety switch? 2002 Cad Sedan Deville. I have had it for six years with no electrical problems.

Disconnect battery on 2003 nissan micra auto to clean and grease terminal, when reconnected car wont start all lights are on but wont turnover. Car was working perfect prior to disconnecting battery.


Just because lights are working does not mean you have a good enough connection to operate the starter motor. Try turning on headlamps, then try to crank it with someone looking at headlamps. If they dim badly or go out, recheck the battery terminal connections. Did you grease the areas that should make the connections? What grease did you use? Try cleaning connections with brake cleaner, sand or wire brush and reconnect without grease. If this works, grease the outside only to seal connections and prevent corrosion.

Two options you can try. 1st, lock and unlock each door manually with the key including the trunk, then try to start vehicle. 2nd option, with vehicle battery, turn the ignition to the 'on' position, reconnect the battery then try to start the car.

1994 toyata camry the alarm goes off and will not let me start the car.


factory security does not have toggle switches as far as I know so it is probably an aftermarket system. Try one of two things, turn the toggle switch the oposite direction with battery disconnected. Reconnect the battery and try again, the horn will beep a few times when you reconnect. try starting. If that doesn't work, disconnect the battery and turn the key to the on position and reconnect the battery and the horn will sound but will go off get in the car and try to start. It should start and run normally. shut car off, then you should be able to return the toggle switch to the previous position If this happens again turn the toggle switch to the opposite position with the batterry disconnected and turn the key switch to the on position and reconnect the battery and start when started go see a service that installs aftermarket systems and they should be able to reset it security system Hope this helps

Out of the blue my chevy colorado won't start if i disconnect the battery then hook it reconnect after a couple minutes it will start


does the unit crank after it fails? I would check all of my battery connections you may have a loose ground either at the battery or at the engine. You may also have a bad starter relay located un the fuse panel under the hood

Replaced battery on 2008 impala, nnnnow sporadic starting. everthing works just will not start nothing. then after a bit it startsis something not reset or is sometype of module need reprogramimg?


After disconnecting the battery the ecm (computor) sometimes needs to relearn the signals from all sensors. If it doen't clear up on it's own check that the battery cables are clean and tight at both ends.
