The battery light is on to let you know there is a problem with the charging system. It has nothing to do with just the battery. Typically them come on when the alternator output voltage is low and usually indicate that the alternator has or is failing.

2002 saturn sl won't start, turn over but won't start


If the engine fires up for a second or two with starting fluid then the fuel pump is weak.I would check the fuel pressure and if its not within the specs then replace the pump and filter.

1995 jaguar xj6 was recently in an accident. the steering and suspension was fixed on the front right side of the car. everything turns on indicating that the battery power is functioning but when it tried...


you may just have a battery with dead or dying cells...make sure your have your battery load tested making sure you have enough amps to crank the car...just because it powers up the cluster doesnt mean it has enough juice to crank the engine..

I was driving and the car cut off. It won't start but it cranks and won't turn over.It is a 1995 Olds Cutlass Ciera SL, 6 Cylinder.


your terminology is wrong.if it cranks its turning over what you mean is it won`t start(fire up) as you said at the beginning.anyways it sounds like you could have a fuel pump problem that stop working.this happens alot.you should check for spark at the plugs to make sure its not an ignition problem.did you notice a check engine light on when it was running.if so there will be a code in the ecm and may be the cause of your problem.

Just shut off the care returned 2 hours later no go got a boost went for a drive left the car running for awhile than it start to get like it was going to stall went on g=for a littlwe while than died....


Hi your problem sounds like the battery is gone and won`t take a charge. When your engine is running the alternator is supplying the electrical power to run the car ( and normally charging the
battery as well )
Even though it seems strange for the battery to go suddenly, it does happen.
How old is the bat. Most last about 5 years with normal driving ( batterys last longer if the car is used every day )
Anyway i hope i have been of some help to you.

1987 Madza Protege, died while driving lights radio still working


I believe it still may be a weak battery. Try to give your car a jump and see if it starts

While driving, all warning lights on dash suddenly were lit. When I stopped the car, it wouldn't start again and sounded as though the battery was dead.


Probably the alternator died, then used up all the power in your battery to keep the car running.
Have your alternator tested and maybe replaced. The battery needs tested also.

Hope this helps
