Jump start the car then disconnect the battery if the car shuts off its probally your alternator, if it stays running then you just eliminated 1 possible problem

Check to see if fuel filter has been replaced. Also you might try checking for possible water condensation. Try a fuel additive.

My car doesn't start. When I turn the key to start the car it makes a clicking noise and the lights in the car start flashing. I thought is was the battery but when I got a jump charge the engine still...


It sounds like the battery is bad, beacuse it wont even start with a jump. If possible take the battery off and take it to your local autoparts or even walmart car service, they will test the voltage on battery for free, from the description you are giving about the clicking sound pretty sure the battery is gone. good Luck.

Power at battery good. power to starte solenoid good, strater tested good. Wont turn over(start cranking)


Sounds like the solinoid is bad. The small wire going to the solinoid should have battery voltage going to it when the key is in the start position. If it does your solinoid is bad. If it doesent your key swith is bad or the wire going to the solinoid is cut somewher between the switch and the solinoid

this sounds like a dead battery or bad battery connection. start by having the battery test and go from there, but this does sound like a battery or battery connection.

My crwn vic wont turn over sounds like wants to start but wont has half tank of gas,where is fuel filter,and fuel pump? my car is 1988.


If it doesn't turn over it may be your starter going. or a weak battery. start with that first, insufficient fuel pressure won't prevent you car from cranking, but weak battery or bad starter will. If you can jump it and it starts its probably the battery if it doesn't crank then its probably the starter. Good luck

Wont fire up. sounds like it's going to start but just wont turn


Hi,
It could be a couple of things:
  1. The starter motor needs repairing.
  2. The starter relay maybe faulty.
If you can get it to a good Autoelectrician they will definitely find the problem quite quickly. 9 times out of 10 its either the battery is faulty or the starter motor needs repairing. Hope this helps, let me know how you get on.

Does the starter make any noise or click when you turn the key to start? If it does not, chk. battery could be bad, and battery cables could be loose or corroded. If there good and clean and battery is good try tapping starter see if it will turn and start if it does or still clicks starter bad. It could be ignition switch if it does nothing at all, but if it clicks most likely its starter.

Car wont start


This sounds like a dead or open battery, clean the battery cables with a wire cleaning tool avail from any parts store, at the same time take the battery out and have it tested, Kragen does this for free! Most of the time the battery has a broken/burnt post inside, so it may show Green for go, but in fact is no good. Factory trained Ford and GM Technician 30 years in the field.
