I'm thinking its the battery. Heat kills batteries. You said it wont jump start. That's a dead ringer for a bad battery. It may have enough juice to power some things, but wont run the starter, or the fuel pump, or the ignition(spark). Try a new battery and let me know!

This happens sometimes with dead batteries taht have more than one dead cell in them. Disconnect the Positive battery cable and connect the jumper cables to that directly and the vehicle should start provided the vehicle providing the jump has a battery with enough amperage to turn your motor over. If there is a leak in that front adjustable air shock this will happen again because that compressor will continue to run trying to get the proper pressure on that shock.

Okay, I attempted to jump my 2004 Chevrolet Impala. Without the jump car and jumper cables, I have zero juice. I hook up the cables, I have juice, the clock in the car hits 12:00 and starts adding as...


sometimes the battery can be so bad that it wont jump. take the battery cable off and cut that rubber **** off from the battery terminal ends that go in a circle around the end. make sure everything is clean. sometimes a little corrosion there goes a long way. give it a shot if u havnt already and good luck

Dies after jump starting


If you have to jump because it has a dead battery, the car won't run with a dead battery. The jumper car gives it enough juice to start but that is it. Check your battery, check your alternator. Hope this helps.

My gauges work but it wont turn over i dont hear any noise from the starter


Three possibilities I think:
First is weak battery. There may be enough juice to light the gauges but it takes power to turn an engine.

Second, bad solenoid. The solenoid is a relay which closes the high current circuit that delivers the cranking power to the starter motor. If you hear clicking in the engine compartment (not the starter) when you turn the ignition switch on it is probably the solenoid engaging and disengaging. However if the battery is weak it won't turn the starter motor. If the solenoid is clicking look at the battery first. The solenoid could be bad but the clicking indicates it's trying to work and there just may not be enough juice to turn over the engine.

Third possibility is the starter motor itself is dead. You have to answer some questions for yourself. Is this an old,neglected car or one that has been taken care of? I would be looking at battery. Can you jump start it? If yes then weak battery is the likely problem. If the car and battery are relatively new and in good condition you should suspect the charging system, that is, the alternator. Did this happen all of a sudden on a car that was running fine recently or has the car been sitting idle for weeks/months.Eliminate the easy stuff.
Clean battery terminals?
Good battery connections and ground?
Try jump start - if yes then follow up battery/charging system. If no start then try to hear for solenoid clicking. If jump start does nothing -figure the solenoid first. If it sounds like solenoid is kicking in but engine does not turn then the starter is looking a little guilty. Jump starting will answer a lot of questions. If the car is really dead then the car that is jumping may have to be connected and revved up a couple minutes to juice up the dead battery enough to turn the starter over. If it turns over a little during the jump start but just barely then you should figure your battery is bad.

sounds like the crankshaft position sensor may be failing, this is not a charging system problem, if it where it would run fine until the battery was run dead and then u would have nothing, no crank no lights nothing, I had this same problem in my 91 Buick Rivera, it has the same engine and electronics. did almost exactly what yours is doing, crankshaft sensor fixed it, and $200 of course.
