I have an Acura Cl 3.0 1999. It has drove fine sick I bought it a year ago. I drove to the gas station turned it off, filled up with gas, went to turn it back on and nothing. Only sound is two clicks from...


if it dont crank how would you say the starter is good.
you dont know that. sorry'
making assumptions is the top killer of all diagnosis.
you set in driver seat:
i key on, is the CEL ,charge and BRAKE lamps glowing
if not you lost all power ,12vdc to dash and ignition.
they must glow, if not the battery is drained or a fuse is blow.
check all fuses , now.
if all those normal lamps glow, (warnings) per the operator guide.
the good, you have 12v power.
proceed to cranking..
"as they say, Call the Auto Club time"
the first check, is called a jumper cable jump start off a running car.
if that works, then the starter is good and the battery was ONLY discharged. (no assumptions. see?)

then and only then could you say, starter is good. see?
if the car JUMP passes ,then battery bad or charge system failure....
(ask for help that topic, "my battery is drained, why?"
if the JUMP fails (to other cars battery)
we then hot wire the starter, does starter crank fast and robustly>>?
yes?, then the key line is bad.
no ?, then the starter is bad. or its 2 huge cables are bad.

YES?? starter hot wires good. then? !!!!
see the tricks here,
my guess is this car is A/T tranny, Automatic.

Why won't my 2012 Suzuki Grand Vitara start?


ill answer for NO ELECTRICAL POWER :
sure and is easy with any DMM meter, got one? any $20 DMM.
my guess;1
engine will not crank
dash lamps out.
head lights out. dead.
post systems of electrical system , all parts that work and those that dont work, and problem is easy.
cleaned battery terminals.
tried borrowed battery that reads, 12.6vdc ? (charged is 12.6)
2012 that is in warranty car.... ?
my guess on 2012
jumping a car, that is battery jump starting.
a battery can short, and no jump start on earth will start shorted battery in car. but does lay down some big sparks, or burns up cheap walmart cables.
if the car will not crank, say just that, my starter motor will not crank
jump started from live running other car.
if true then make sure headlights work , if they dont work fix that first.
HL must always work, even keys in pocket.
best is to put a fully charged battery in the car, jump starting can cause
surges that can damage sensitive electronic$$$, do jumps as a desperate measure,
with a charged battery,
1: Head lights work, no fix that , use voltmeter
2: cranks robustly.
no , wiggle shifter lever, (on A/T cars the park switch blocks cranking) On M/T the clutch blocks cranking.
with any dMM
measure battery voltage before crank and during.
12.6v good. reseted.
cranking.
0 to 10v bad (weak battery or shorted starter motor)
11 and above good. and must crank, if not , starter is bad.
to prove starter is bad, check voltage at starter solenoid coil wire lug.
it must be at 11v cranking , below 8v it chatters, and fails.
if at 0v cranking this lug that means the Key start line is failing.
A/T switch not closes, or bad ignition switch.

Key won't turn, won't shift from Park


My 2003 Saturn l200 2.2 ecotec did this when the battery was dead. Put some juice on the battery, then the car came out of park, and I was able to remove the key. To the car, there's a vast difference between a sluggish battery and a dead battery. It may have enough amps to crank it, but it wont start w/out full output from the battery.

Car won't start without a jump but battery okay


wont crank or wont start.??
no car starts , if it cant crank. (unless push starter (M/T magic)
that is not a trans sensor its the PRN switch.
ill answer for, wont CRANK !
it wont crank even with a good battery (charged) or jump started.
1: bad start
2: bad wires to same.
so hot wire the starter small wire, the key start line is tiny.
cranks. , starter good, no crank starter bad or cables bad.
if it cranks hot wired, then the key line is dead.
easy, huh?

I have a problem with a 2008 Dodge Charger, my battery went bad and I had to jump it off to take it and get a new battery put in but now my new battery won't start my car not even when the new battery...


When you jump started the vehicle, it started as normal and you drove to a shop to have a new battery installed.?? Correct??

1. Who removed the old battery and installed the new one?

2. Did the car start normally immediately after the new battery was fitted? How frequently were you able to drive the car on the new battery before the problem you described appeared?

3. Has anything been done to the vehicle since the new battery was fitted.?

try locking your car with the key and unlocking it with the key, leave it for 30 second or so between the locking and unlocking , the car thinks some one has tampered with it

2000 Buick regal- My key is stuck in the ignition and will not come out and it has no power, I am unable to even move it oiut of the garage. Help!


I suspect your battery is dead. The key won't come out unless the car is in park also.. and might even require power from the battery to get the key out.. I would start with a jump to the battery and see if your key issue is solved.
