    I think ICC has something to do with regulating current while driving--not related to starting. jump time not likely caused by water. water in the computer connector can cause issues, including ignition timing signal from crankshaft sensor signal. What do you mean by Fuse #11? Is there something wrong with that fuse?

SOURCE: My car will not start

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Two things to resolve the issue. Swap the battery if it will start right up and if it doesn't then there must be a problem on the car's computer. But before doing so, please have the car scanned to know the fault code and by then we'll know the fix.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My car was running. I bypassed the relay for the A/C compressor to turn on the engine stopped running.Did not start again, checked for fuse, found one blown, Put fuse in, blew that fuse too.

I can't tell what you've done? Where is the fuse located, under the hood--interior fuse box? What is the fuse amp rating and what does it control?
If it cranks good but won't start, make sure the battery has a full charge, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, check fuel injector pulse.
What about your security system?

Hello Sir:

There are 2 Problems that can prevent your car from starting:

#1) Make Sure your getting Fuel

#2) And Check to see if you are getting Spark to your Spark Plugs,By pulling off 1-Spark Plug wire and take plug out also, Put spark plug back in the Wire. Have someone crank the engine over,and see if theres Spark at the Spark Plug.

#3) If your car is'nt even cranking over,then the problem is in either your Ignition switch,starter relay,starter,or it can be as simple as a relay or Fuse, check in your fuse box inside,to make sure ALL fuses are good.

#4) Then under your hood you should see a plastic Cover Fuse and Relay Block as well, Check these also,Mainly if its labeled Crank,or starter. Also check your Starter relay. they are a Larger componet in the box under your hood.

#5) to check this relay you'll need a OHM meter to check for resistance. also check the EMC Fuses or Relays.

#6) if no fuel check fuel pump fuse and replace fuel filter 1st.

#7) If no Spark make check your Coils.I'm sure if you follow these tests you'll locate your problem.

The fuel pump relay is located under the dash on the drivers side. The fuel pump relay is green and it should be next to a brown relay for the ignition.

My saturn SL2 died at idle...and now wont crank over...there is juice to the starter and the battery has 13.1 volts

Any starter clicking noises? Try moving the shifter to "N" neutral and try starting the car.
IF that is not successful, find the starter relay in the under-hood fuse box, replace the relay with an identical relay from the under-hood fuse box and see if it will start. This will then eliminate the park/neutral start switch and the starter relay.
Let me know what you find.

Car wont start...checked everything..altinator...battery..starter..cant find problem.

If it has spark at the plugs, then it may be the fuel pump relay, or a fuse going to it, the relays are in a box under the hood they should be marked, check them w/ a test light.

I have a 2003 Dodge Caravan with a 3.3L it wont start or even turn over. Run test on electrical system found ignition signal to relay found power supply to the relay and ground to the relay. When I jumped...

Yes they do but I would rather think you have a bad battery cabe connection to the system, sometimes the battery cable corrudes and you can't see it try replacing the cable ends and the connector ends espically if they are by the battery.
