My car won't start. And I changed my alternator a month ago


Your car won't start as in the battery is dead? In other words, the engine does not turn over OR the engine does turn over, but the car does not start?? The alternator has nothing to do with starting the car. The battery starts the car. So is your battery dead? An alternator will not charge a battery that has seen better days. Take the car in (if you can) to autozone or advance auto and have them test the battery.

Key wont come out ignition and won't start?


  • Check Your Fuses: Few cars have a fuse associated with the starting system, but before you go monkeying around with everything, check your fuses to be sure it's not that simple.
  • Battery Corrosion: Over time your battery connections can become dirty, or corroded. This corrosion breaks the connection your battery has with the rest of the car, and it won't start. Try cleaning your battery posts and try to start the car again.
  • Dead Battery: The most common reason your car won't start is a dead battery. If you have a battery tester that can measure cranking amps, test your battery to see if it's weak. If you can't test it yourself, you can test the battery indirectly by jump-starting the car. If it starts right away, your problem is most likely a dead battery. Replace the battery, and clean the battery connections to ensure good contact.
  • Bad Igntion Switch: If your battery checks out, but the starter is still silent, it may be a faulty ignition switch. Turn the key to the on position (not all the way to start). If the red warning lights on your dash don't light up (and your battery connections are clean), the ignition switch is bad. If they do light up, turn the key to the start position. The dash warning lights should turn off at this key position (most cars). If you're not sure, turn on the headlights. When you try to start the car, the lights should either dim (a lot) or turn off completely. If they do, your ignition switch should be ok. If not, the switch will need replacement.
  • Bad Starter Connection: Corrosion can not only keep your battery from connecting, it can affect any electrical component, especially the ones exposed to the elements like the starter. If you have a helper, you can test the connection by holding a circuit tester lead on the wire that engages the starter. This is the smaller of the two wires connected to the starter. Be sure no part of your body is near the moving parts of the engine - it could still start at any time! Have a friend turn the key and check the current. If you're getting current to the starter but it ain't spinning, it needs replacement.
If your starter spins freely when you turn the key, the problem lies elsewhere. Now you begin to check the other systems that could keep it from firing up.

Fitted new battery to 523i 1999 bmw car did not start ,after 2 days of push starting car started on key now car will nut start


firstly check that your battery has a charge using a voltmeter, it needs to have 12v
if no charge, you will need to charge the battery.
if it has a charge, and the battery terminal connections are good, you will be looking for the the engine to turn(attempt to start)
if it turns and stasts, fine.
if the engine does not turn, you will need to look at the startermotor connections. (power supply to the starter motor via the ignition switch turns the engine)
hope this helps

My car started dying and now hasnt enough charge to start


sound like bad battery cables.replace them.the positive battery cable is old and have a lot of resistance not allowing power to the alternator to charge battery.if battery cable good check alternator connector wires.make sure they are not damage also check alternator fuse and fuse link.turn off radio before removing battery wires so you wont lose radio code.

When i turn the start key jn my Nissan Primers (52 reg)it tries to start then a click is heard and the electrics turn off. I turn the key off and it all resets, i try starting again and a click is heard...


The clicking usually means that the battery does not have enough charge to start the engine. Try just turning on the ignition and starting the windscreen wipers. If they move really slowly then your batter is low. Try recharging the battery for a few hours using a car battery charger. Try to the start the engine again after it is fully charged. If this works but then the battery goes flat again, you may have a problem with the alternator, or the battery is not correct for the car (the bigger the engine, the heavier duty the battery.
