Most major auto part stores are able to diagnos most of you problems. I would go in and have them check you battery, starter, and alternator. I would buy a batery cleaning kit and some terminal pads and some protectant spray. Check you posative cable its the one that goes to the solenoid, and then check the ground its the one that goes to the block make sure that they aren't broken or burnt threw in the midle. If they are good just clean them and put them back on with the teminal posts that you baught, this will keep them from getting nasty in the future, and spray them down with the protectant that you baught, this will keep oxidation from building up on them also. The rest of the information will come from the guy at the auto part store, and they will tell you what you need to buy.

Sounds like the starter may be getting weak, or the cables are loose or corroded, to verify it check the cables first. Ant major auto parts store can use a small handhelp computer for free to test the starter, alternator and battery.

2000 windstar with a 3.8 motor cranks slow then stops and no start .Acts like a dead battery battery is good what can it be?


Bad connection or corroded cables, possibly a bad starter. Sounds like something is drawing more amps than the battery is capable of supplying.

My 1996 Buick LeSabre won't start. It's getting gas- has good spark. When it turns over it is real slow then acts like battery is dead. Have new battery and starter. I am at a loss.


Check voltage at battery while starting. If good, check with headlights on. If headlights dim, suspect bad battery cables or excessive friction in engine. If not,check voltage at starter.

When I turn the ignition switch on there is no power. could it be a fuss?


Sounds more like a bad connection on one of the battery cables or a bad ground.
The ignition switch is powered by a fuseable link wire that acts like a big fuse. The wire starts at the starter solenoid.

It wont start turn key dash lights up nothing happens


sounds like a dead battery to start with. Not even enough juice in the battery to energize the solenoid / brake interlock to get it out of PARK. Hope this helps

Won,t start, acts like no juice is going to starter w/charged bat


You need to have your Battery Checked. Common Symtom of an Early Failing Battery. Not enough Cold Cranking Amps Left to Kick it over.
