Clean all battery cables especially the bottom ends (on starter & ground) Everybody cleans the tops, bit NOBODY cleans the bottoms and they're exposed to grease, road grime, etc. Also make sure your battery is correct size. Many folks go "cheap" and your car is LOADED with electronics that require every once of energy it can get. Don't skimp on battery size.

After the ignition switch is replaced the car won't start with the reason that the new switch has to be re-learned manually or with the help of diagnostic computer.
Manual learning procedure: PLEASE DO AS DIRECTED.
- Turn the ignition switch to ON (Engine off)
- Try to start the engine and leave the switch to ON position. (At this stage car will not start).

Replaced heater core, car won't start need troubleshooting


If you changed your heater core, it has nothing to do with the car starting. Did you disconnect the battery when you did this? . The only other thing I can think of is a safety switch that won't allow the car to run if the water is low. This can happen if the system gets air locked. How did you fill the system back up? Did you hit any wires off while working on car? Did the car run fine before you changed the heater core? Let me know and we can go from there Cheers from NS Canada

Did you check for B+ voltage at the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator ? When yor turn the key to run , not start , does the charge indicator light ? When the vehicle is running is that charge light lit or off ? There is a fuse that supplies B+ voltage to it . Fuse # 30 located in the central junction box , it's a 30 amp fuse ! Plus one more fuse located in the battery junction block # 11 20amp . With out B+ voltage at these connections on the alternator it will not charge .

Mercedes vito 110cdi starter motor problems. only when the van


Hi as it starts with a jump start, i would rule out a starter motor problem, i am taking it that what you mean by a jump start is your using a donor battery rather than pushing the van, so possible causes are (1) battery discharging due to a light left on, or the alarm system draining the battery or something similar, (2) alternator not charging the Battery, when you turn the ignition key does the ignition light come on, does it go off when the engine starts?

Car wont start


Check to see if your getting spark. Pull one plug whire at a time. with plug in wire. resting on engine (not holding) have someone turn the car over look for spark.

If you have spark in all cylinders. Also check to see if your getting gas.

Check ignition switch as these have been issue for me in the past. Use multimeter and test switch
