First check your starter. If it is good make sure the wires leading to the starter are tight and not broken anywheres. If all of this is good check the ignition relay and possibly the under column switch. It really sounds like a starter issue though.

Spark , compression , fuel ? Which of these are missing ? Spray carb. cleaner or starting fluid into the engine , does it try to start ? Pull two plug wires at the same coil , crank engine , is there spark ? No power to gauges hasn't anything to do with no start .

I have a 2008 Saturn Vue, all dashboard lights work, seatbelt alarm they all work except the fuel gauge doesn't work and the engine will not turn over. It isn't the battery and has new starter.

If it is a new starter and it is not turning over the engine it has to be because it is not receiving power. Check battery connections and start solenoid and any fuses/relays in the mix.

My Jeep won't start. I replaced the battery but the car will not start. The gauges all go crazy and I hear a ticking noise, but it seem there is no power getting to the engine.

Does the engine turn over at least? The gauges getting crazy points to a PCI data bus problem, then also the engine will crank, but not start. Could be one of the components connected to the bus. Also common is water ingress in a large connector on passenger side bulkhead, which causes the data bus to short out..

Why did my pntiac vibe lose power while i was driving the radio turn off the gauges stop working and the engine lost power

The battery may only be 3 1/2 years old, but the factory
batteries seem to fail early in life

Check to see if has at least 12.5 volts across the terminals

I think you lost the battery & then the computer module went down,
as you turned into the driveway

If you only have 12.2 volts, don't try and charge it,replace it

If it does start ,check voltage again with engine running
The alternator has to output over 14 volts to charge a 12 volt
