No power,


sounds like the alternator is not charging the battery and as a result your battery is now also faulty. also be sure to check that the battery clamps are tight on the battery when you start the Runner. check your ignition switch that could also be faulty, the reason i say that is it might not make contact when you turn the key and that could also be y there looks like no power. hope it helps

When I turn the key the dash lights turn on, but engine doesn't do anything. I think the battery is ok.


you can turn your headlights on and turn the key if the light go out, then the battery is dead. More then likely it is the starter, you can locate the starter and tap on it to see if it will click or engage while someone turns the ignition on. Good Luck Tim

Pt wont start or turn over


try to get a jump from a friend and see what happens, does the same, faulty starter, may need replacing, try to use small hammer and tap lightly on the starter couple time and have a friend start the car while you tap lightly on it. check ignition switch where you stick the key in. stick the key in the ignition and turn the key back and forth jiggle and wiggle it and see if your igniting will make contact. do it several time to test and see if its the ignition problems, this part is not cheap to replace.

Where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord


Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

98 elantra will not start and headlights dont work


Check that the battery connections are tight and secure. If yes, check the starter motor connectors and check current to the starter while the ignition key is turned. If there is no current, try wiring the starter directly to the battery. If it turns, then the problem is in the wiring or it could be the starter motor fuse. If the starter does not turn, remove the starter and take it to an auto parts store for testing.

2000 volvo v40 wont start


Turn on the headlights try to start if the lights go off or go very dull the battery most likely is flat

If the lights stay bright, make sure the transmission is in neutral and the park brake is on.
Hold the key in the start position and let someone tab the starter motor with a hammer, often the tarter engaged, The problem in this case point to worn brushes.

Good luck
