Put in new battery. Brake lights and exterior rear light works but that's all. Engine won't turn over, won't even "click". Checked battery....it's a good battery with full power. Why won't it start?

Is there an immobilizer or anti theft system in this vehicle?

If so, the key may have to be reprogrammed to accept it before trying to start it due to loss of battery power to the computer.

Or the park/neutral safety switch somehow is not allowing power to the starter because it thinks that the car is in gear. Jiggle the gear shift with the brake engaged.

Good luck on this repair.

No voltage. Replace the turn signal switch. All the exterior lights run threw it. Except the rear high brake light.

The PATS security system would prevent the engine from cranking if the system does not "see" the right chip in your key. If the system is working correctly, the light should go off after you turn the key switch on.
You should have power on the small starter wire when the key switch is in the start position.

Rear brake lights won't turn off


Check brake light switch (likely faulty). This issue may not be related to the engine issue.
If not the brake switch then check wiring for possible short circuit.

1995 Saab 900 Hatchback, problems with all exterior lights


Wow !! Where to start ??

I think most if not all of the lights go thru the ignition switch. What I mean is the ignition switch must be on for the lights to work.
Most of the lights are on different circuits with different fuses and relays. They are connected to the battery and alternator but not directly. Most but not all are connected to the headlight switch.
One thing that does tie everything together is the grounding of the car. All voltage goes back to the battery by way of the steel frame of the car.
If a ground strap or cable is loose or dirty, electricity has problems getting back to the battery.
So the options are the headlight switch, the ignition switch, and the ground circuits.
I would start by checking the tail lights or headlights to see if they are getting 12 volts, then check and see if the lights are grounded back to the battery. I've even run a wire from front to rear to bypass the car ground connections to test.

I cannot get my truck started, the battery is brand new. The interior and exterior lights and stereo work. Is it my starter?


If the engine is turning over strong but not starting, the starter is fine, but if it's clicking, the starter solenoid on the starter may be defective, Try tightening the battery cables, the lights can still work even though you don't have a good connection to start the engine.

1998 Lincoln Town Car: No turn signals, 4 way flash, brake lights


If only your brake light in middle of rear window works then your other bulbs are bad. If brake lights all work in the back than bulbs are good. If you put turn signal on right or left and the bulbs light in front and back then you need to change multifunction light control box under dash. My understanding is it cost $600 new. So I would try used.

Right signal and brake light


Looks like the problem is in the turn signal switch. This is a common problem. When the turn signal switch goes bad it will cause problems as mentioned above by you. Replace the turn signal mechanism.

Multiple issues


2. Interior and exterior lights. The other day I was detoured thru an area; hit a hard bump and all interior lights went out. Upon further inspection found all exterior lights were not working except brake and turn signal which are fine. I checked the fuses. Ohmed the relay coil and contacts in a de-energized position which all apear fine. I even removed the light harness for my trailer lights.


Don't blame the bump, blame the assholes at Chrysler. Have it checked at dealer, you will get Front Control Module and Power Distribution Module both have internal shorts. Get your money out and slap down about $600 to have them fix it. This is a quite common problem with the Chrysler Vehicles. They are laughing all tghe way to the bank. No more Dodges for me ...............ever!

With the ignition off, the rear tail lights won't turn off


hiya if the rear lights are remaining on ? with no ignition it will be the brake lights staying on this is easily remendied/ checked by trypulling the brake pedal up by hand and see if lights go off ? if so then you will need to adjust the b/light switch which is positioned adjacent to pedal and can be screwed inwards towards the pedal untill the plunger on switch is pushed into the switch which puts lights off ensure pedal is fully up then adjust switch reconnect the wire/plug and press pedal slightly to ensure b/lights operate ok and then go off with pedal released ? on hyundai the brakelights do not req ignition on to operate hence more likely problem is as above good luck
