There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--

1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.

2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.

3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.

4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.

5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it's a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.

Why car starts on its own even with no battery in remote same time every night how can i stop this


Park the car at a friends house a distance away from its at home location. See if the car starts. If so It is either someone having fun or a failure of the remote start system that randomly initiates an engine start!!

If car starts return the car to the dealer explaining that this proposes a serious problem with the fool proofing and or reliability of the start feature. If the car had been parked in a garage and started without driver activation it poses a serious concern!!

See if the dealer will perform the checks and perform
a no cost repair??

If the car doesn't start it is likely a neighbor with a similar car activating the start. If the car is equipped with an aftermarket remote start feature check to see if the code can be changed.
Hope this helps.

I changed spark plugs and wires..but car wont start..what do i do??


Your year--make--model didn't post for some reason? That info would be helpful.
If no spark, check primary voltage to the coil. Are you missing anything else, fuel pressure--injector pulse? Engine cranking, do you have rpm signal?

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.
