Is the security light flashing? If so try turning the key on for ten minutes than try to crank the engine. Try this three times if no start turn the key on for thirty minutes than try cranking the engine. It should turn over if not You may need a new ignition switch. Or key. I need more info after you try this.

When I go start the car it does nothing


Battery could be dead. (Like maybe an interior light was left on for a long time) Do any lights come on in the dashboard when you turn the ignition key to run or start? Any noises from the starter/solenoid? If not, first place to check is the battery. If you have a battery charger, put it across the battery and see if any lights come on when you turn the key. If you are a member of AAA, call them and they can come out with a new battery and test your battery to see if that is indeed the problem.

Car wont start, ignition goes on


Probably your battery is dead,enough for the lights or your alternator is bad which is what keeps the battery charged. Or your car is out of petrol.

Try to start the car with the lights on...if the lights go dead when you turn the key then the battery has low voltage. Try jump starting the car.

if the lights stay bright and you hear click, the starter is bad. Try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times. If the car turns over, then get at starter. -

Lots of stuff !
#1 If you can ,try to start it in neutral.
#2 In park hold the key so start and have an assistant rap the
starter motor lightly with a bar or whatever(if that works the brushes
in the starter are going,starter time)
#3 turn on the headlights ,have your assistant watch,they should
be bright,then turn the key,if the lights stay bright,it's a fault of the
starter or key/ignition system. If the lights go dim or out it's just
a battery terminal connection.
A few things to try anyway,good luck.

My 99 Durango won't start. When I turn the key


Have your battery checked. It should read 12 - 14VDC and stay at 12VDC and above while turing the key to start it.

All comes on when key is turned on, starter will not engage when key turned to position. new starter, new battery, starter attempts to start car when jumped at starter relay 87 w/key on. car had started,...


Does the car have a factory security system? it may have a starter kill on it.
also check for voltage at the starter solenoid while someone holds the key to start position, you could have a faulty ignition switch.
the engine light stays on when the key is on until engine starts.

Can a bad battery stop a windstar from turning over even if lights still come on?


It could if battery only has enough power for just the lights, what I would try first is turn the light on and try to start the van, if the lights go to dim or off, then the battery is no good, if they stay bright then more then likely it's going to be your starter, another way to test the starter is hit the starter with a hammer or some thing you can reach it while some one holds the key to start, if it starts or not replace it anyway bad starter.

Our R reg Sharan will no longer start.


first go to the basics charge the battery fully make sure leads are clean and tight with ignition off put car in gear handbrake off and rock car in gear to turn engine over (make sure you are not on a hill) so as to move starter.
check back of starter wire connection both large power wire and small spade terminal
check wiring on back of alternator plug and main wiring for alternator if all this is ok and it wont start if you have ignition lights but still doing the same then if it is manaual tow the car and try and start it if it is auto you can only replace bit by bit but try battery first from donor car as this is the easiest good luck
