Narrow the search! rule out no fire to plugs or no fuel to motor. check fuses under hood 1st,,,look in black box under the hood where your main fuses are. make sure there are no fuses blown.then check fire to plugs, if you have fire to plugs then it will be fuel problem. check if fuel pump hums when key is turned on,, listen when key is turned on for humming at gas tank under car.,, sometimes you can bump tank with a hammer and jar the pump to hum. if this happens,, replace the fuel pump! your main issue is this;;; rule out,, fuel or fire,, answer this @ you will find your problem. hope this helps!!

Not alternator or battery, maybe fuel pump. You will need to troubleshoot--are you willing?

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

How do I get my car to start it won't start. Charged the battery. The cars turns over. I know I needed a thermostat but the car wasn't over heating. Will that cause the car not to star


Obtain an OBD tester from your local Autoparts store. Run the diagnostic from the OBD port underneath the dash and see if you get any codes. Most likely you will and it will point you in the right direction. My bet is an ignition relay has died.

Fuel cut out


Did you check the oil? A low oil sensor will disable ignition if more than a quart low.

Battery drainage on 99 ford windstar


Aftermarket radio set up to play when no key in ignition? Or CB? or aftermarket alarm system?

If so- those can put a phantom load on the battery when it is shut down.

If you do not have those installed, does your fuel pump continue to run? If so- try swapping the fuel pump relay if that does not remedy it, replace the oil presure switch it may be stuck closed.

sounds like power problem, if youhave test equit, check the battery and altenator if not replace the battery and start it up, the battery might be soft and ur altenator is working at full yield.

1997 chevy 1500 wont stay runing


Ok, first, you need a new altemator. When you pulled off the battery cable with the truck running . it caused a voltage spike and fried the voltage regulator, which is internal on this particular altenator. If you want to check to see if the altenator is charging, use a volt meter.

Since it wouldn't start after you put the new altenator on, it could be one of two things, either you got a bad altenator which happens sometimes or, you have a weak battery and the altenator is tryng to charge itself to death.

98 explorer won't start


I am almost 99% sure it is not the alternator it sounds like the Fuel pump has gone out. If you turn the key to the on position you should hear the fuel pump for about 5 seconds if you don't hear the fuel pump you will need to check for power at the pump. If you don't have power at the pump it may be a bad cam sensor. If you have power going to the pump Then you will need to replace the pump. Also you need to check and make sure the engine is firing. If it is not you may have a bad coil.
