Hi! As a first course of action please remove the dash fuse and check if it's blown. Replace if necessary. Regarding the headlight, please do check the headlight fuse and relay. If the fuse is not blown then the head light relay can be a little loose or in need of replacement. Hope this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!

I hav a ba ford all I done is disconted the battery and now the car wont turn over at all I hav dash lights but still wont turn over


More context needed to understand. Was the car starting and running immediately before removing that battery? or was it disconnected 6 months ago? why was the battery disconnected?

Dash lights dont mean much. Put headlights on and on high beam. Are they white, yellow, barely on, not on?

Initial guesses, battery terminals not clean and tight or battery has died.

Sounds like a bad connection or a bad battery cable. Are the battery cables clean and tight on both ends ?
Yes the engine should crank if the battery is charged no matter what condition the alternator is in.

You need to have a good battery in it. There are to many computer controlled opponents. Put a new or known good battery in it and try it. If it doesn't start then check for fire at the plugs and fuel pressure at the fuel rail.

My expedition wont even try to turn over and the odometer just has dashes on it just put a new battery in last week the outside temp comes on then goes to dashes


Try your headlights. If they are real dim or don't come on at all, the battery is dead. Since the battery is new, I would think the alternator is not charging the battery while the engine is running, You can have the alternator checked,

I just bought a 1994 bmw 525i . Suddenly it wont turn over. acts like dead battery but I have power.


When you say you have power, do you mean the dash lights come on?
The power requirements of the starter motor are a lot higher than that of the dash lights or even the headlights and accessories.

Turn the headlights on and try to start the engine, if the headlights go really dim or right out then your battery doesn't have the capacity that the starter needs to turn the engine over and you need to replace it.

When i turn headlights on engine dies on 95 lexus sc400


Is the battery fully charged?

The alternator may be bad. If the headlights reduce the voltage to the computer and ignition system, the car will stall.

I would check this first.

Good luck on this one.

First have battery checked at a Interstate battery place or equivelant. All issues point to low voltage. A shorted battery will cause the alternator not to work.
