Check out how tight are the battery terminals. If you can move either of them then this is too slack. Next check the earth strap from the engine back to the car body. Again this should be good and tight with bright metal to metal contact. If everything is OK then check the voltage of the battery it should be about 12.5 volts. If 12.1 volts the battery is severely discharged. If about 10.4 volts then your battery has lost a cell and you will need to change your battery. If battery is OK then check out your starter motor and the connections to it. Initially give the motor body a clout with a length of stout timber when trying to turn the engine over. If the starter motor kicks into life and turns the engine over then it is likely that the starter motor carbon brushes need replacing.

Why does it turn over making a whining noise and does not start?


Try cranking the engine with the belt removed.
You may have another pulley that is locked up.

It sounds as though you have a c/v joint going out on your Neon. If you intend to repair it yourself, the replacement part is around $40-$50.

This sounds like the anti theft system is active, you jump start it but it dies out after a few seconds , if this is correct then try another key. the other thing can be a weak battery make sure the battery is fully charged and good,

Squeaking noise when i go over just the slightest bump on my 2004 chevy trailblazer


There are a number of rubber bushings in the suspension of the truck. Try to at least isolate the squeak to the front or rear, then spray silicon lubricant on the bushings in that area.

2008 Ford Escape Liftgate make sqeaking noise with the slightest bump. Nothing seems to be wrong on the outside trim. Help It is not good.


I'd get a can of silicone spray and spray hinges, and latch, as well as a light coat on weatherstrip all around the opening, unless it sounds like a mechanical part inside the door.

Hi. i have chevy venture 2000. i park at home & accidently my brother try to start the car with non programm key. security lock appear. no i try to start my car with original key it wont work. just...


Put the original key in the ignition and let it remain there for 15 minutes, then try to start the vehicle. If that does not work, then the only solution is to have the system replace at a dealership for $1000, or install a bypass system. The only bypass system on the market that really works is from the following website. http://newrockies.ca/vapsbypass. Good luck. I hope this helps.

remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.
