Make certain the car is in park. If it is, try turning key to on position and hold brake and shift to neutral to try to start it.

Change battery on 2005 nissan frontier wont start


Hi, If the problem is associated to you replacing the battery, then it could be a few different things. 1) Is the replacment battery fully charged? If not, charge and retry. 2) Are the positive and negative battery cables connected correctly to the battery? With this you have to be sure that you have a good connection to each battery terminal. Try removing the cables and taking a wire brush to the terminals. Once clean, reconnect them and try to start again. 3) Is the positive cable broken? If broken replace the cable. 4) Is the negative battery cable broken or properly connected to the car? If broken, replace the cable. Good Luck!

Security on. car wont crank. can trun key wont


verify that you have a fully charge battery and that you have the same amount of voltage at the battery as at the starter when the key is turned to the start position. If not repair fault at positive cable either at battery or at starter. If voltage checks good. Use a remote starter and turn key to the on position and try to crank over engine with remote starter. if engine cranks over. You have a defective starter solenoid and starter must be replaced.

Mazda 6 wont turn over,and all dials go mad.is it battery or starting motor,or something else.


Check the battery positive cable there is a problem with the positive side of the battery cracking open and corroding the cable. You may need to just replaced the battery and cable if the corrosion hasn't gone to deep in the cable.

Temp guage hot & won't start


Simply replacing the battery can NOT cause the problem you describe. I suggest you check the battery cables (polarity) to be sure the battery is installed correctly... then check the battery cables to ensure they are properly connected and no damage is evident (negative - to negative - and positive + to positive +). Replace cables as needed.
