You need to check out the Alternator...it might not be charging the battery...
if thats good then check if the battery is 5 years old...if so then you might need to change it...it might be that the battery doesn't hold the charge...
lets just hope that there is nothing wrong with the engine!
Good Luck!

1996 Toyota Camry won't do anything when trying to start, nothing electrical works, won't shift from park. Battery has 13 volts.


you meant it wont crank , right? its silent/
no grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr sound.... like all cars do cranking?

you blew a main fuse. (nothing works, that means you key on
and the large numbers of idiot lamps are all dead, including the CEL lamp (EFI is dead if CEL is dead, no spark or fuel happens with ECU/PCM dead.) so is it?
if CEL is dead, oil, charge and freinds, all dead, the fuse is blown
for cluster or the main under hood.
this is easy, 13v on bat... make this easy.

My 96 pajero will not start at times


did you try to jumper cable start car?
that is a NO CRANK issue, no car starts (cept mine, its an M.T) with out the starter motor working, (mine can be push started or hill started)
Jumpers fix issue?, so bad/dead /discharged battery.
so????
so is the IMMO light showing IMMO blocking, , you ever read the operators guide and see IMMO rules>
lamp on, lamp off, lamp flashing... all have meanings.
the IMMO cuts fuel, not the starter,
so its not IMMO. Its a bad starter system. (it is a system of parts)

no crank has many causes. the tests are easy with a voltmeter.
a $20 volt meter can save you the cost of a $140 battery.

It can be a free fix. (clean the battery lugs yet>?) ask how.
to start the engines (assume engine is ok and EFI ok, and spark ok)
the start system can fail like this.

1: A dead battery ,bad bat., or only discharged, a voltmeter solves this riddle. (ask how)
if only discharged, then charge it. and find cause of discharge ,1st or it will repeat.
the order here, counts.
2: bad battery to starter cables.
3: bad starter solenoid, or starter. we hot wire IT.(ask)

(fails? , bad starter,assumes battery side is good,first)
hot wire fails.
I hit the starter casing with a hammer bam, it now works.

4: starter cranks hot wired. it's good. (test passes so i then find the bad KEY line. cause,,, we now have problem cut in half.

5: the KEY line is that wire that runs from KEY (ST) to the starter , small wire.
on an A/.T car, (auto/trans) car, the key line passes thru the
PRNDL switch on tranny. so wiggle the gear shift. cranks now>?
try cranking in Neutral. some cars allow this, and
the Neutral side of the switch will like new, and car cranks.

that was the long answer.
here is the short.
Take it in. call the auto club.
guess, i guess,?
1: left head lights on.
2: battery lugs never cleaned.
3: battery died.

04 mustang 6 cyl. wont crank,think its the fuel relay switch or punp. the relay switch makes a buzzing when tapped on ?


How old is your battery? if it is 8 years old, I'm betting on the battery being dead. They can die rather suddenly, has happened to me twice. Battery will have enough power to run lights and such, but not crank the engine/power up the FI system. Otherwise, could be the relay.

1966 ford pickup 352 motor turns over but acts as if the battery is dieing has new starter battery, cylanoid and wires


Battery may not have enough cranking amps to turn it over. Those old fords need at least 800 cca and to be fully charged. Keep in mind that not all new starters (parts in general) are always good. Make sure nothing else is drawing a bunch of juice from the battery at the same time. Like an aftermarket stereo for instance.

2001 beetle stalled and won't start


Check TDC (Top Dead Centre) sensor - ie. crank sensor. Possibly faulty and needs replacement. Could also be a worn out timing belt.

Dead battery making a clicking sound


take the battery out of the veh and see if it will charge overnight on a charger, if not then the bat just ran its course I doubt it is 11 years old. Bats last anywhere from 3 to 5 years then they die if it does charge then your alternator needs to be replaced as it charges the battery when you drive, low voltage may cause the buzzing, tellin gyou there is a problem.

2000 XJ8,CAR GOES DEAD AFTER NOT BEING STARTED FOR A WK


when the bat is fully charged , open the bonnet and remove one of the bat. post connections. With the key off (like it is when it sits and dies) and the doors and etc. closed , fan off , radio off.... place the cable you took off on the bat post . if there is a spark or anything... report back.
Also , listen for anything under the bonnet when you do this...
