It's not the alternator, as the car can start and run with battery power alone for a period of time.
Check the condition of the plugs and wires if they are suspect, then check for proper spark and proper fuel pressure and activity of the fuel injectors. If nothing else works, check the engine compression.

I have a 95 honda civic ex,wont start.ran fine yesterday,wont start this morning.battery is fully charged,new cap and rotor.would do u think might b my problem


if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

Why won't the car start?


If you mean the car won`t turn over then you could have a bad starter motor/solenoid. check voltage at the large wire terminal on the starter it should be battery voltage. then check voltage on the smaller wire terminal it should be battery voltage only when cranking. if not you will have to check out the wires for lose of voltage. make sure the starter has a good ground. if these are good then you have a bad starter that needs replacing.

Why won't it start?


There should be a clutch safety switch that prevents you from cranking the engine with the clutch engaged.
Have you checked the switch for power ?

My 2008 silverado won't start battery is charged


No, it isn't an ignition issue.

Check power to the starter motor solenoid.
If this is getting power when cranking, then the issue is with the starter motor solenoid or starter motor. Replace.

My saab 900se won't crank


If you get a click or tick sound, then that would suggest to me that your starter motor solenoid is working, but your starter motor itself is stuck or worn out.
Check power to the starter motor when turning the ignition key to the crank position. If it is receiving power, then replace the motor.

Replaced the fuel pump on 97 dodge mini caravan now motor wont crank like the battery is dead. tried jumping it - nothing. All lights work bright! What did I do wrong?


I would check the starter for voltage first - there is a starter relay that is grounded by the PCM. If the ASD relay is faulty the pcm won't have power. You should have battery power to the starter and power on the solenoid when you turn the key to start.

My 96 jeep Laredo will not turn over. I've checked


sorry turns over means ZERO
the crank shaft can spin or not
the starter can in fact spin and crankshaft not.
and some think turns over means, engine runs. now that fact makes turns over, a dead statement.

the word is cranks over, the engine cranks over robustlyl
and then the engine runs.
then runs for more that 3 seconds, and the ASD relay holds. (step by step his works like this ,93 to now)

wont crank ? (clear statement in fact)
cranks ok, (crank shaft spins fast) can be seen and heard.
runs for 3 seconds? and stalls (ASD relay drop out) can be seen.
runs for 5min and stalls. (complex)
runs for hours and stalls. (even more complex)
all are key facts to the solution.

tell more..... tell all it does good bad or ugly
for better suggestions!

Hello, My Hyundai will not start, i think it might be the starter, but the battery is good and all the lights work and everything, but when I go to start it, I have nothing. I won't crank, click,...


check on the fuse box, am sure that a starter fuse is blown. the alternator might be the causer. as you said you changed it not so long. When you find out the fuse are ok, check also the solnoid wire on the starter motor beside the main wire, when that is good then might be the carbon brushes are won need to be replaced
