It's a no spark or no fuel problem. do you hear the fuel pump humming when you turn key to on position? if you do then pumps working. have you pulled a plug wire off engine and put a screw driver in wire and grounded to motor while turning engine over to see if it's getting any spark? have you checked all the fuses under the hood in the black box? i hope this helps!!

Won't start, battery good, starter good, swapped relays and still won't start


Any issues with the ignition switch itself? They are mostly made of plastic pieces. With the exception of the actual cylinder. Also depending on how long you had the battery issue,it may have damaged the alternator. They tend to go hand in hand,unless caught early enough. The alternator gets overworked due to the weak battery.

I have a 1988 camry and i charged my battery a day ago snd tryed to start it again the next day and it was dead again. Do i need a new battery?


It definitely sounds like the battery has had its day. Unhook the battery from the vehicle, charge it....leave it unhooked over night, and attach next day.... if the battery has life, it could be an accessory in the car is taking the power. if not, replace battery

My jeep won't start or even turn over


you need to check the voltage at the battery when you have trouble. should always remain above 12 volts.
If not then the battery or the connections are bad. first test the battery right at it's lug terminals, then check the terminal connectors. battery or cable or connectors - def sounds like major voltage issue in the battery area!

Van will not start when its cold. it cranks and cranks. once you do get it started it restarts fine. have checked spark and fuel all is good. changed air filter also. no lights come on


I saw something similar to this on a 1991 dodge van a few days ago.. turns out it was the battery. It was odd, because it cranked over fine and had spark and fuel, but would not start. If your battery is good, then confirm that your fuel pressure is ok

Sometimes my 2008 sonata won't start back up after turning off engine, I have to wait at least 20-45 minutes for it to start back up. I hear 1 click when I turn the key and everything else seems to...


Sounds like it could be a similar issue to what I just went through. My car wouldn't start on two separate occasions after I had refilled my tank. First time happened a little over a month ago, the starter would crank, and crank, but no signs of life in the engine. Tested the spark plugs, I was getting spark, but the ****** wouldn't start.
Had it towed to the dealership, and they said after 4 long attempts, they got it to start. I took it home, and the next morning I couldn't start it again. Towed it back a second time, and it started right up for them. Drove it back home again and a a month later things started acting up again.
A few days ago the wife pulled the car out of the garage, where the car was level, stopped the car on our slanted driveway and when she came back to start it just minutes later, it hesitated, but did turn over. I filled up the tank and the very next morning, I could not start my car again.
Called for a tow from AAA, and the driver said "let me try something". Pulled out a hammer, and wacked the bottom of my gas tank 4 or 5 times. The tow guy gets in, tuns the ignition to engage the fuel pump (didn't turn the key all the way), he does this about 4 times, then the very next turn of the key it starts right up. The driver said it sounded like a bad fuel pump.
I drive the car back to the dealership (this is the third time) and talk to the same guy I had dealt with all along. He calls me later in the day to tell me they finally got it to not start and were able to isolate the problem to the fuel pump sensor. They replaced the fuel pump assembly and I was off and running.
Hope this helps!

The only thing I can think of besides some serious electrical issues is your alternator. It sounds like a weird issue, but the alternator deals directly with giving your car power.

Have you tried jump starting it? Low voltage can cause lots of issues. It could be a bad alternator.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition


Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
